High Fiber Cereal Blend

They say breakfast it the most important meal of the day. But it can also be the most frustrating if you’ve got to get out of the house in the morning, especially if you’ve got others to feed. I’ve been making this for years now, and it’s one of my most reliable staples, although I’m [...]

Buttermilk Chocolate Pecan Pancakes

My breakfasts usually consist of smoothies or oatmeal, but occasionally I’ll make pancakes or waffles. Usually when I have overnight guests. The last time I made these fluffy buttermilk pancakes with the addition of dark chocolate chips and toasted pecans. And let me tell you, they were a big hit! These are golden brown, fluffy, [...]

Almond Cacao Nib Smoothie

I love the ease of smoothie. Throw a bunch of healthy stuff in a blender with some ice or frozen fruit, and 9 times out of 10, you have something filling and tasty. It’s a practical way to get a bunch of nutrients that you’re just not going to eat first thing in the morning. [...]

Cheddar Ranch Buttermilk Biscuits

There’s a cafe near me that makes these scallion cheddar biscuits. They are amazing. They closed for a minute due to recent events. So I thought I would try my hand at making them myself. As I was making them, I had a different thought — what about cheddar ranch biscuits instead of scallions? I [...]

Buttermilk Cinnamon Scones

I used to work at a bakery that made scones. Berry, chocolate chip, cranberry, and my favorite: Cinnamon chip. Because there’s not much better than butter and cinnamon, in my opinion. We made batch after batch all day everyday, but I still enjoyed my early morning (4am!) cinnamon scone with fresh coffee. I miss working [...]

Baked PB&J Oatmeal Parfaits

I love oatmeal, and try to eat it as often as I can, but it can get boring fast (side note: why does pizza never get boring?!?) I’m always adding new things to my oats, and have eaten them every way you can imagine: steel cut, rolled, combination, with chocolate, nuts, yogurt. But still, I’ll [...]

Vegan Gluten Free Blueberry Waffles

If you’re regularly scheduled brunches have been cut short, first due to a global pandemic, and then because you’re snowed in, then you might need to improvise. I mean, sure. You can just eat whatever you might normally eat for breakfast and skip brunch altogether. But is that ever fun? Nah. Since one of my [...]

Coconut Oat Pancakes

When you think of pancakes, the first thing that comes to mind is likely a towering stack of fluffy pancakes drowning in butter and maple syrup. Nothing wrong with that if you’re looking to indulge at breakfast. If you don’t want to indulge, you go for something more like these hearty vegan pancakes filled with [...]

Salted Peanut Butter Baked Oatmeal

I love oatmeal, especially in the winter, and especially if it’s the baked variety. I make it often, but like to change it up a bit. Fruit is a fave, but this time, I thought I’d try something different for a treat — peanut butter and crunchy sea salt, with a bit of chocolate. The chocolate [...]

Blueberry Chocolate Chip Baked Oatmeal

A few years ago, I worked at a bakery that made blueberry chocolate chip cookie bars. Everyone always thought it was a weird combo until they tried them — and then they were hooked. They were one of the most popular items on the menu even. While the cookie bars themselves were great, the combination of the [...]
