These hearty banana-sweetened cookies are perfect for a lazy Saturday morning, post-workout snack or lunchbox treat for your kiddo.
Just so you know, creating a recipe title is hands down the hardest part of writing a recipe. I don't even know what's happening here. It's a type of bread. But it's not banana bread or zucchini bread or pumpkin bread. It's good. And there's a whole can of beans in there, so that's pretty tricky, no?
I wanted an easy and nutritious snack that we could pack up on the fly...so I made these cookies. They contain fat, protein and fiber - the 3 things I look for in a hearty snack. They’re super tasty (pleased both the adults and toddler), but definitely not your traditional chewy gooey chocolate chip cookie, more like a snack bar in cookie form. So heads up there. We’ve already made them 3 times. Try ‘em out!
I made this grain-free apple crisp two days in a row because my husband and kid ate the first batch while I was at yoga. Savages. Second time around I wrote down the recipe so I could share with you. Luuuuckkkkyyy. If you've recently visited an apple orchard with your family to post fall images all over social media, cheers. Now you're swimming in apples. Here's what to do with them.
Mint + chocolate is probably my favorite flavor combo. Junior Mints, Thin Mints, Andes, Peppermint Patties...always my top choice back in the day. I was trying to come up with something festive and different to make for Christmas this year, and THIS is what popped into the ol' brain. I've gifted some out, ate a lot, and will be bringing them as a treat to our (one of 5) Christmas gatherings.
A few months ago I was in a store and a fancy food product caught my eye: Vanilla Cake Batter Coconut Butter. I mean...WHAT. I've eaten coconut butter for years (and have even made it at home)...but this was some next level stuff. So despite the $13 price tag, I bought it (I'm kind of a sucker for novelty foods).
I've been making this recipe for years. I've shared it with countless people: I make it at workshops, some variation of it is always included in my nutrition programs, kids have tried it and loved it. You should make it.
I don't normally have the biggest sweet tooth. As I've mentioned previously on the blog, I tend to crave things on the saltier side of the snack spectrum.
But pregnancy has shaken some things up - as it's known to do - and lately I've been finding myself on the lookout for baked goods midday or after dinner.
