Black Bean Brownies

I love sweets, so if I can find any recipe to try to make a healthier version of it, I’m always down to try it. I only post the successful recipes on this blog (which I have many of), but I’ve also made many failed attempts— doesn’t end up the same, or flavor is just…

Fluffy Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

Made these delicious fluffy pumpkin chocolate chip cookies in the spirit of fall, and they were sooo good. I made two different pumpkin chocolate chip cookies, and this was by far the winner. Beware, these are addictive, so make sure you have an occasion to serve them at, otherwise it will be way too easy…

Banana Blueberry Waffles

I thought that I found my favorite waffle recipe in my Oatmeal Waffles, but that was before I made these Banana Blueberry Waffles! I had extra ripe bananas on hand, and decided to make this recipe. I used Rachel Mansfeld’s Paleo Blueberry Banana Bread muffins recipe and made them into waffle form, and they were incredible!…

Banana Chocolate Chip Cookies

I have a whole long list of recipes I’ve wanted to try with ripe mashed bananas, and this Banana Chocolate Chip cookie recipe from delish was one of them! This recipe also is made with peanut butter (my favorite), so I knew it would taste good! Plus it is gluten-free for all those avoiding gluten,…

Berries and Cream Freezer Fudge

I recently went to a free fitness event where I was given free bottles of REBBL juices, and I received the Berries and Creme flavor. I’ve seen different food bloggers I follow use REBBL elixirs in their recipes, so I decided to look for a recipe using the Berries and Creme flavor. I found the…

Peach Gallete

Made using my Braun FP3020 12 Cup Food Processor I went to a peach festival recently at Carlson Orchards and naturally picked and bought more peaches than I could eat. I decided I’d make a peach dessert for the first time, and thought making a gallete was a good opportunity, since I’ve always wanted to try making…

Oatmeal Waffles

Based on ErinLivesWhole recipe for Oatmeal Blender Pancakes, thank you for the inspiration Erin! I started out making pancakes but it started getting a little messy (I’m not good with figuring out the ideal time to flip pancakes, so I used my Dash Mini Waffle Maker Machine instead). I got this machine on a deal for…

Banana Bread Cinnamon Rolls with Yogurt Glaze

This banana Bread Cinnamon Rolls recipe (slightly edited) from Minimalist Baker and Yogurt Glaze recipe from Epicurious is BANANAS B-A-N-A-N-A-S! Original recipe is vegan using vegan butter, I chose to make mine with real butter because my stomach is fine with dairy (and it is what I had at home). Here’s how I made it: Banana Bread Cinnamon…

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

I love peanut butter and chocolate, as shown through my various dessert combos containing these two ingredients: Healthy Vegan Chocolate Peanut Butter Crunch Bars, Peanut Butter Banana Cups, Chocolate Chip Banana Bread and Chocolate Dipped Frozen Banana Bites. This is my first cookie recipe to include both of these beloved ingredients! I found this cookie recipe off of…

Sweet Potato Waffles

I love sweet potatoes, and I’m lucky that they are also incredibly nutritious and a great source of fiber, protein and vitamins (learn more here)! I made these sweet potato waffles using leftover sweet potatoes I had after using the skins for a different recipe and LOVED them. I think this might be my new…
