• Healthy Holiday {Cranberry Nut} Zucchini Bread

    I whipped up 2 loaves of this easy sweet bread today: One is for a gift and the other for my humble abode. Using whole wheat pastry flour, less oil, coconut sugar, apple sauce, banana, and zucchini, this dairy free bread is healthier without compromising taste and texture. It's comparable to a light cake.   I [...]

  • Any Way You Want It Tofu Scramble

    I woke up on this Saturday morning with what has become my usual groan this week as I peered out the window at streets that are beyond covered in wet leaves. It has rained every single day this past week and the forecast is calling for more. My moods are definitely affected by the weather and [...]

  • Apple Pie Oats With Maple Walnuts

    The key to a good, palatable bowl of oatmeal is retaining some of the original oat texture and preventing the transformation to mush. I use rolled oats (not quick oats) because I can better control that process and they still cook really fast. You can certainly make this recipe with quick oats or steel cut oats [...]

  • Fluffy Banana Cupcakes Topped With Chocolate Ganache And Caramelized Bananas

    I heard about Chiquita hosting a recipe contest which ends tonight at midnight!  The winner will receive $2000. I would even be happy with a runner up mention. The requirements are to include bananas, cream cheese, and chocolate chips. I'll be honest: Other than my oatmeal cranberry cookies, I am not a regular at making up baked [...]

  • Pecan Pumpkin Honey Oat Squares

    Happy Halloween since it's technically after midnight! I hope everyone has fun plans lined up today and if you don't celebrate, may you have a wonderful Saturday. I was recipe testing earlier tonight and wanted to have the kids wake up to a healthy but still a treat on Halloween morning. See this post for [...]

Breakfast for guests or for the whole family all week long! The below recipe includes my modifications. Oh She Glows Heavenly Carrot Cake Baked Oatmeal Author: [...]

  • How Do You Like Them Apples?

    Oh so simple. Oh so good. I wanted a rich dessert but a week of rainy, gray days + sugar just make me feel sticky and lethargic. But I want it all: my temptation satisfied without feeling like a big ball of goo afterwards. This quick and easy recipe hit my sweet, tangy, juicy, crunchy cravings [...]

  • Fueling Cinnamon Chia Honey Nut Overnight Oats

    I have a stash of bars for a handy on-the-go breakfast or snack but nothing replaces real food. These overnight oats honestly take me as long to prepare as walking over to my pantry, finding a bar, packing it in my bag, and unwrapping it! The plus is knowing all of the ingredients too. I [...]

  • Marbled Banana Bread

      Something I really enjoy doing when we have overnight guests is getting up early and preparing something sweet to cook in the oven. As the goody bakes, it fills the house with a warm and welcoming aroma that everyone appreciates waking up too. Add a pot of hot coffee or tea and bam, just call [...]

  • Anytime Or Anywhere Oatmeal Cranberry Cookies

    A few of my readers have asked me for a healthy oatmeal raisin cookie that they could feel good about feeding their children for breakfast. I was out of raisins when I made these but you could used any small dried fruit. Again, ease and versatility are the name of the game! These cookies are [...]
