Pumpkin Pancakes

Pancakes are my absolute favorite breakfast. Yes of course you can buy a pre-made mix that just needs water or milk… but there is truly something special about making real home-made pancakes. We love to make a big weekend breakfast with lots of pancakes! My favorite pancake recipe is my not your grandmas pancakes. ButContinue reading “Pumpkin Pancakes”

Pumpkin Bread

Pumpkin bread is a a total fall vibe. I probably would eat this bread year round (it is that good). But like most seasonal foods, it really tastes best during fall time. One of my favorite pumpkin breads is my Pecan Spice Pumpkin Bread. If you have ever had Williams Sonoma Pecan Spice Pumpkin Bread,Continue reading “Pumpkin Bread”

Veggie Bites

While I do love vegetables, sometimes they just aren’t what I am craving. Sometimes I need to sneak them in to things like sauces, making zoodles instead of pasta etc. These bites are the perfect way to sneak those extra vitamins and nutrients in. They are loaded with 5 different vegetables! So for any ofContinue reading “Veggie Bites”

Fudge Brownies

Brownies or blondies? While I love vanilla everything, I will definitely take the brownies over blondies. These brownies are made with the amazing superfood: cacao. Cacao is what gives these brownies the chocolate flavor. Cacao is filled with fiber, protein, potassium, magnesium, and is amazing for blood health. I also used pumpkin in this recipeContinue reading “Fudge Brownies”

Banana Oat Bread

Who doesn’t love a good banana bread?! While there are so many different versions of banana bread out there (Martha Stewarts will always remain a childhood favorite) they all pretty much have a similar concept: bread made from bananas. Some like to add walnuts, others like to add chocolate chips… I like to add OATS!Continue reading “Banana Oat Bread”

Almond Cookies

Almonds are something that I consume regularly. I probably have almonds at least once a day everyday. They are in my morning coffee, smoothies, desserts, dips, trail mixes, salads etc. Almonds have such a unique quality to them, that they are so versatile. They can be made into almond milk and almond flour both ofContinue reading “Almond Cookies”

Stuffed Peaches

There is nothing better than spring & summer peaches. They are so refreshing on a summer day. One of the things that I picture when I think of summer is ripe and juicy peaches. You know it is summer when you head into your local market and there is a large abundance of peaches inContinue reading “Stuffed Peaches”

S’mores Cookies

Everything about summertime makes me happy. Warm weather, more time outdoors, and S’MORES!! What is better than summer nights around the fire making s’mores with friends and family?! And what could be better than a cookie and a s’more in one!?! These cookies are gluten free. They can be made paleo and keto using paleo/ketoContinue reading “S’mores Cookies”

Banana Muffins

Breakfast in my household usually consists of PB toast or a smoothie. Sometimes on the weekends we will do pancakes if we want to get fancy. And when we want to get really fancy… we make banana muffins. These muffins are delicious! They are gluten free. You can add in whatever you like. I loveContinue reading “Banana Muffins”

Oatmeal Chunk Cookies

These cookies are loaded with so many goodies. They are so delicious and satisfying. Often with cookies (especially chocolate chip cookies) I can’t stop at just one. These cookies are loaded with fiber and protein, you will be satisfied after 1 (or 2!). At first I called them breakfast cookies, but honestly they should beContinue reading “Oatmeal Chunk Cookies”

Gluten Free Crackers

Lets face it, buying healthier versions of old school favorites can be downright expensive. I don’t know if you feel the same way, but it seems like the cleaner the ingredients, the more they cost. Plus they’re always packed in plastic which is terrible for the environment. Homemade tastes better, and is more eco-friendly. TheseContinue reading “Gluten Free Crackers”

Shawarma Wraps

Anyone else love greek style food?! Same. These shawarma wraps are made greek style with a twist. The veggies are smothered in a healthy, plant based dill cream and are perfectly combined with cumin chickpeas. I used homemade cassava flour wraps, but feel free to use your favorite store bought pitas too. The recipe IContinue reading “Shawarma Wraps”

Oat Flour Cookies

The one thing that is tough about creating a recipe is wasting ingredients. I try my hardest to get things right on the first try and it doesn’t always workout. These simple cookies came out perfect on the first try. They are crunchy on the edges but soft in the center. They melt perfectly inContinue reading “Oat Flour Cookies”

Cherry Chunk Cookies

Whether it is cherry season or not you can always find them in the frozen food aisle of most health food stores. I love fresh cherries but frozen are great to have on hand for smoothies and other recipes… including these cookies. These cookies are grain free, gluten free and 100% plant based. I useContinue reading “Cherry Chunk Cookies”

Strawberry Poptarts

I used to live for poptarts. Nothing is better then biting into that warm gooey fruity center. Of course the original ones are packed with artificial ingredients and sugars so I decided to create a clean version. And by clean I mean plant based, gluten free, grain free and made with real fruit (not thatContinue reading “Strawberry Poptarts”

Gingerbread Loaf

Over this past weekend I got really excited about creating.  Getting creative sounds a lot easier than it is. Some days ideas are just flowing, others you need to go out in search of inspiration. I had intended to make a gingerbread loaf but it took me some thinking. I really wanted to get creativeContinue reading “Gingerbread Loaf”

Grain-free Granola

Granola is one of those things that will always remain a staple in my home. I love trying new brands, but there is something so special about homemade. DIY granola is a great breakfast, a great smoothie topper, ice cream topper, snack, its awesome on an apple with some nut butter, it can even makeContinue reading “Grain-free Granola”

Apple Cider Donuts

Nothing says fall like going apple picking and buying some fresh apple cider and apple cider donuts. Of course they are such an amazing treat, but it’s hard to limit yourself to one of the sugary fried dessert. So creating a healthier option was a must for me. These donuts did not disappoint. I haveContinue reading “Apple Cider Donuts”

Pumpkin Spice Cookies

‘Tis the season! Well, almost. Fall is my absolute favorite season. Growing up in New England, I was blessed with crisp air, changing leaves, Apple picking, and lots of sweaters. My favorite food memory of the season was going to Williams Sonoma and buying the Spiced Pecan Pumpkin Quick Bread. It sounds as good asContinue reading “Pumpkin Spice Cookies”
