Recently, I have been finding myself scouring the kitchen for a little snack that didn’t involve ice cream. I found some all-too-ripe-bananas, so naturally, banana bread was calling. Coincidentally, my man had been asking for some of that homemade goodness for over a few weeks now, but it was just too darn hot to bring myself to turn the oven on to bake bread.

They are healthy little bites, rolled in a thin blanket of sugar and cinnamon. If you’d like to make them less sweet and more breakfast-like, you can surely eat them without the butter/sugar topping…

But, I believe in balance, and a little sweet topping won’t kill ya. Unless you eat the whole batch, which is possible once you get a taste :).

So I’ll finally admit that it’s feeling like Fall. I’m all about it now.

I love a hearty bowl of homemade oatmeal in the mornings to get me energized for the day.

My usual go-to consists of oats, cinnamon, chia seeds, vanilla protein powder, and dried cranberries and/or fresh fruit, like bananas, strawberries or pear.

Well, with the fall season officially here and the craving for pumpkin-spice flavored EVERYTHING constantly leaves me with half-used cans of pumpkin puree, this is … Read more...
