Molasses Ginger Cookie Energy Bites

My favorite cookie of all time is my Grandpa's Molasses Ginger Cookies which I made into a gluten free version last year. They're highly addictive, and so good that I don't make them too often because I lack a little thing called 'willpower'! So I thought it might be fun to take the same flavors of this classic cookie, and ...

Bacon and Eggs Breakfast Pizza with Hashbrown Crust

I'll take savory over sweet any day for any meal, which is a little strange since I've always had a sweet tooth in the past. But something's changed over the years, and I'd choose to eat anything to do with cheese/bacon rather than a muffin, without a second thought. I had the idea for this breakfast pizza during the cauliflower pizza ...

Pumpkin Pie Energy Bites

Energy bites are one of my favorite things to have around because they're awesome as a snack on a mountain top in Glacier National Park. Or they're equally good in the car on the way from one appointment to another when I just don't think I can make it until dinner time. On one of my recent grocery trips, I ...

Apple Pie Pancakes with Bacon Vanilla Bean Syrup

This is my ideal weekend brunch on a plate. First there's a stack of pancakes which is almost mandatory, and they're made even better by the fact there's apple slices hiding in there, (just like my mom used to make). As if the perfect stack of pancakes wasn't enough already, I went ahead and gilded the lily with some Bacon ...

Pineapple Orange Banana Green Smoothie

It's been a little while since I've come up with a green smoothie recipe. So long in fact that I went back into the archives to see, and it turns out that the last time I posted a green smoothie was in February of this year! Of course there's always a reason behind everything, and in this case there's several. ...

Chunky Monkey Smoothie Bowls

You want to know the secret for really beautiful smoothie bowls? The answer is so simple - just be messy! I don't know why I've always tried to arrange perfect rows or fruit, or make the toppings look just right, (maybe it's all those pretty pictures on Instagram or something). But these smoothie bowls are the first ones I haven't ...

Pumpkin Spice Streusel Muffins

Sunshine on crisp mornings are one of my favorite things about fall. The temperatures drop, the leaves start turning color, and I turn my oven on again after a summer of grilling pretty much everything. I love the smell of cinnamon wafting through the house when these muffins are in the oven. And there's nothing like pumpkin and spice that ...

Peanut Butter and Jelly Protein Smoothie

This is my new favorite breakfast on the go! It's packed with protein (15g per serving), really quick to make, and can be made year round with either fresh or frozen berries. It doesn't hurt that there's peanut butter in there either, which makes everything so tasty. To be technically accurate, it's actually peanut butter powder which is really high in ...

Healthy Zucchini Blueberry Bread

There's something about the weekend that always calls out for baked goods. Lazy mornings with coffee, and something sweet to nibble on, are one of my favorite things to do in life. Whether we're at home or out camping in nature, I try and have one morning a week where I'm not tearing off in a hurry to get a ...
