Baked Banana Coconut Zucchini Bread Oatmeal

This recipe was kind of an oops recipe. I had no idea what new flavor to try, but I definitely wanted banana and zucchini in there (because zucchini is my favorite thing to put in my baked oats!). So I thought I’d add some coconut (because why not?) and DUDE. It came out amazing!! It tastes like banana bread AND zucchini bread, and that hint of coconut is the perfect way to bring it all together. Sure, it’s getting hot this summer, but it’s always a good time for something THIS good.

Gluten-Free Chocolate Donuts

We’ve made baked chocolate donuts on the blog before. They’ve even been gluten-free before. But this version utilizes the base of my favorite banana bread muffins without making these taste like banana bread donuts. They taste like chocolaty goodness instead, so they’re a delicious dessert. Yet they’re made with healthy, simple ingredients, so they’re perfect as breakfast or a snack. So take your pick on when you eat them. They’re easily anything you want them to be!

Blueberry Muffins (GF & Non-GF)

Do you follow Dr. Greger’s Daily Dozen? If you don’t, check it out! It’s a great way to focus on getting the right amount of whole plant foods into your diet. If you do, then you’ll recognize at least one of these ingredients as one of his must-includes each day: blueberries! Well, berries in general, but I freaking love blueberries. And who doesn’t love muffins?! So we put the two together for this delicious blueberry muffins recipe (which comes in both GF and non-GF). Call it breakfast. Call it a snack. It doesn’t bother me what you call it as long as you enjoy it. 🙂

Then bake up some cookies to indulge in your new (healthy) obsession. Mmm!

Baked Piña Colada Oatmeal

When a friend comes up with a new baked oatmeal flavor, you try to make it. And sometimes you crush it in one try, like with this baked pina colada oatmeal. Mmmm, you guys!! This one is totally a hit. I absolutely love pineapple (see last week’s pineapple orange juice for further proof) and can’t wait to make more of this bad boy this summer. It’s like a delicious treat for breakfast, so you can’t go wrong.

Doggy Treats

We have two dogs. For G’s birthday, I shared the Doggy Cupcakes recipe, but for Titan’s birthday (which is today!), I’m making these treats for them. I made them last year, and it made a lot, but they store well in the fridge. So the pups get lots of leftover birthday treats over the next several days. Which they love. But it helps that we can eat them too! Top them with a delicious chocolate frosting and enjoy as well!

Delicious doggy treats for your pup! #fruitsohard #vegan #glutenfree #doggytreats #dogtreats #dogs #recipe

Chocolate Chip Donuts

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!

Baked Peanut Butter Apple Oatmeal

This one got a huge “YES!” from Husband. I *really* wanted jelly-filled peanut butter muffins but thought I’d make a jelly-filled peanut butter oatmeal instead. When I asked Husband if he had a flavor preference for a baked oatmeal, he looked at me with stars in his eyes and said, “We have apples!” So peanut butter apple it was. And dude. SO glad we did it. Mmmmmm!!
