Canadian Bacon + Egg Breakfast Cups (Gluten Free, Low Carb)

How fun as these little cuties? I am all about easy, healthy meal prep for the week and these are perfect for that.  They also take all of 5 minutes to get in the oven, so are great when having people over for breakfast or…

Salted Caramel Coffee Cake (Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Refined Sugar Free)

It’s almost Mother’s Day, and what better way to celebrate than with CAKE?! And not just any cake, but coffee cake. And not just any coffee cake, but SALTED CARAMEL coffee cake. I’m crazy for this recipe, and so excited to share it with you. …

Chocolate Chunk Banana Bread Cookies (Gluten Free, Refined Sugar Free, Dairy Free)

Chocolate Chunk Banana Bread Cookies (Gluten Free, Refined Sugar Free, Dairy Free)

I didn’t mean to start a breakfast cookie website but… here we are. These Chocolate Chunk Banana Bread Cookies are sort of a cross between banana bread and cookies, hence the name.  They are soft on the inside with lots of texture from coconut, banana…

Oatmeal Raisin Breakfast Cookies (Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Refined Sugar Free)

Oatmeal Raisin Breakfast Cookies (Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Refined Sugar Free)

Breakfast cookies, they are a beautiful thing. While the idea of eating a cookie for breakfast may seem odd to some, it’s not an off the wall concept.  After all, granola is really just a deconstructed oatmeal cookie isn’t it?  The problem is that usually…

Baked Oats – Cinnamon Roll + Birthday Cake Variations (Gluten-free, Dairy free, Refined Sugar Free)

Baked Oats – Cinnamon Roll + Birthday Cake Variations (Gluten-free, Dairy free, Refined Sugar Free)

You likely know by now how I love my oats. I love them in breads. I love them in crisps and cobblers. I love them in cakes. I especially love them blended with fun flavors and baked until puffed and golden for breakfast.  This brings…

Healthier Homemade Nutella (Gluten Free)

Healthier Homemade Nutella (Gluten Free)

This is a nutella appreciation post.  If you like the jarred stuff, homemade will knock your socks off. Nutella is great on everything from toast, fresh fruit, and yogurt to pancakes and waffles.  Truth be told, however, I prefer it right off the spoon.  There’s…

January Smoothie School:      7 Days of Smoothies

January Smoothie School: 7 Days of Smoothies

Do you love smoothies?  Welcome! Do you dislike smoothies?  Welcome! I am both of you.   It’s hard to believe that I didn’t care for smoothies for most of my life, actually up until about a year ago.  There were two main reasons for this:…

Ginger Molasses Brunch Cake (Dairy Free, Gluten Free, Refined Sugar Free)

I think we can all agree that the holidays are all about grazing… especially in 2020 when we are all home day, after day, after day, after day. Celebrating the holidays, on the whole, is more casual for most of this year and I have…

One-Bowl Pumpkin Banana Bundt Cake

One-Bowl Pumpkin Banana Bundt Cake

This cake will also go down in my mind as the Quarantine Pumpkin Cake.  Why?   Remember back in the beginning of the pandemic when everyone was making banana bread?  Well I do, and maybe that’s because I never really stopped.   This cake is a combination…

No-Peel Apple Almond Crisp

No-Peel Apple Almond Crisp

Controversial as it may be, in almost all cases I prefer crisp to pie.  There are certainly outliers here, I love Key Lime Pie or Lemon Merengue Tart for instance, and if I had a Black Bottom Oat Pie delivered from Four & Twenty Blackbirds,…

Pumpkin Spice Latte Bread

Pumpkin Spice Latte Bread

We are officially into fall, which means that pumpkin is on the brain for most of us. I am always thinking of new ways to use pumpkin, and this recipe is a twist on my classic pumpkin bread, using coffee to give you the flavor…

Superfood Granola Bark

Superfood Granola Bark

This is my absolute favorite granola that I bake monthly, not too sweet, perfectly crunchy and flavorful, and so versatile.  I love it with coconut yogurt, almond milk, or simply as a snack with some afternoon tea (this one is my new favorite and I’m…

One-Bowl Gluten Free Banana Bread

One-Bowl Gluten Free Banana Bread

By now you have likely heard the months-long joke around “quarantine banana bread.” Essentially, everyone has been baking with all this time at home (and stress, perhaps), and banana bread has really found its time to shine. There are some informative and entertaining pieces on…

Butter Pecan Overnight French Toast

Butter Pecan Overnight French Toast

Father’s Day is around the corner, and I will be making this French toast bake to serve on Sunday morning. When it comes to weekend breakfasts and brunches I am firmly in the “make the day before” camp, when at all possible. Usually what I’m…
