No oil or butter Chia Banana Bread with Choco Chips_LYK

I am SO excited to share this with you! I have a totally new level of banana bread love going on now; I was a fool for thinking it couldn’t get any better, because it just did.

Mind blown.

I can’t hold it in any longer. This banana bread recipe has to be the healthiest sweet bread out there. This recipe doesn’t employ the evil profile of butter or fatty oils (some are good, don’t get me wrong), but instead … Read more...

These cakey, pumpkin, chocolate-laden cookies might be my favorite part of Fall!

I’ve already made 3 batches. That’s like over 100 cookies. And I can grantee I’ve personally scarfed about 20 of them. Probably more, but that’s something I’m not willing to admit, until another batch is made.

Chocolate-Chip Zucchini Bread with Pepitas

Pepitas sweetly baked in a blanket of nearly guilt-free chocolate chip zucchini bread. Now THIS is how you should start your day.

Oh yeah.

There are a few things that really remind me of the days when I was a pesky little child darling little angel, and zucchini bread is right up at the top of that list.

Coconut Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

by Chrissy


We made some coconuty cookies a few weeks ago and they have since been on my mind.

That nifty idear, plus a double dose of chocolate and some hearty oatmeal action, make for the perfect cookie. Great texture, great flavor, great recipe.
