Y’all. These cookies! I mean, if you love golden milk lattes like I do, then you should probably try these cookies. And, by probably, I mean definitely. They’re so moist and soft and full of that delicious golden milk flavor! If you’re not familiar with golden milk lattes (or GMLs as I call them), then start right here and make yourself one. Then bake up some cookies to indulge in your new (healthy) obsession. Mmm!
These donuts, you guys!! I love me some donuts, but I love when I can make them AND they’re delicious AND they’re sneakily healthy for me! These have fruit and oats, so they’re practically oatmeal. Which makes them the perfect breakfast! You can make these in advance, or you can eat them fresh and warm right out of the oven. Either way, you can’t go wrong. They stay soft and moist in an airtight container, but when the chocolate chips are still melty from the oven? STAHP. IT. Soooo good!
Zucchini is my favorite thing to put in recipes these days. And I knew it was only a matter of time before I made zucchini muffins. Because of my long-term love affair with chocolate, I knew they needed to be chocolate too. So here we are! With a delicious chocolate zucchini muffins recipe on our hands. Imagine that.
It’s pretty common knowledge that chocolate is bad for dogs. But it’s not super common knowledge that carob is just fine for them! So let’s make our pups some chocolaty treats that are safe and healthy for them, shall we?
This is a game-changer for me. I used to LOVE English muffins, but avoiding the processed stuff available at the store is important to me. Doesn’t mean I won’t splurge on some Dave’s Killer bagels every now and then (not GF – sorry!), but when a girl wants an English muffin, she needs something simpler. Like THIS recipe I customized from The Big Man’s World. It’s actually from Natalie at Feasting on Fruit, and I love her blog so much and try a lot of her recipes. And this one is a real winner, you guys. Breakfast just got a little better.
Sometimes my pup gets a grumbly tummy. I’ve read about how it can be something really serious, but that doesn’t appear to be the case with him. And he’s always been a weird eater. So I sometimes have to get him to eat something, and usually, these doggy cookies do the trick. My favorite part? I get to eat them too.
Finally, a recipe where the turmeric I add is not optional! I put turmeric in nearly everything, but this drink isn’t golden milk without it.
If you aren’t familiar with golden milk, let’s chat. It’s a yummy drink made with your (nondairy) milk of choice + turmeric (the golden part) + black pepper and a healthy fat (for turmeric absorption). You can spice it up with cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, cardamom, etc. Sweetening is my preferred method, so I add dates to the mix. And the healthy fat is usually oil, but I’m a no-oil kinda gal, so here’s my take on a creamy, dreamy golden milk latte.
Okay, you guys. I’ve been talking about these muffins since I made Baked Carrot Cake Oatmeal a couple of weeks ago. Once I started adding veggies to breakfast, I’ve wanted to throw them into everything! Which is how these delicious carrot cake muffins (made with sweet potato!) came about. So let’s bake some!
Do you like french fries?
Okay, that was pretty much a rhetorical question. I’ve met very few people who don’t eat them or like them, so I’m assuming you enjoy french fries. Otherwise, you wouldn’t be here. So let’s make some incredible oil-free french fries for a healthier twist on this fast food classic.
Last year, my dog’s birthday rolled around and I wanted to make her something delicious. I celebrate my dogs’ birthdays more than I celebrate my own, so I knew I needed to make her something delicious from scratch. Yeah, I love baking, and it’s mostly because I love to feed everyone. It’s how I show people I care. So I had to make G something yummy. And I’ll be making these again tomorrow for her birthday (her 10th!!) this year. Here’s the result!
