Cinnamon Raisin Pizzert

Hi chocolate pizza pies!

I always marvel how my posts involving peanut butter are much more popular than the others. They even seem to be more popular than my posts involving chocolate. You people need to sort out your priorities! Chocolate should always come first.

Still, I’m glad you liked the Peanut Butter Frosting post. Today’s post involves peanut butter too. But more importantly, it involves the power couple: cinnamon and raisin. Some things are made for each other. Chocolate and raspberry, peanut butter and jelly, Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston. Hmmm, scratch that last one.

The marriage of cinnamon and raisins is guaranteed to last forever. If you need proof, just take a look at the snack I ate yesterday afternoon:

The Breakfast Pizzert

The cinnamon-raisin breakfast pizzert. I added both to the wet mix, then added more cinnamon after it emerged from the oven.

Cinnamon Raisin Breakfast Pizzert

Serves 1-2

  • 1/2 cup spelt or white flour (or click for a Gluten-Free Version.) (70g)
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/16 tsp uncut stevia OR 2 tbsp sugar of choice
  • 1/3 cup plus 1.5 tbsp water, juice, or milk of choice
  • 2 tbsp (35g) applesauce or melted coconut oil (or veg oil, mashed banana, or even baby food!)
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup raisins

Mix everything together and pour the batter into a greased pan. Grease very well so the pizzert doesn’t stick to the pan! Cook in an UNpreheated oven set to 420 F, for 10 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Frost with peanut butter or healthy peanut butter frosting if desired.

    We have been eating PB-cinnamon-raisin on pitas bread and tortillas for years. Super yummy snack. I’ve never tried baking them though, and I must try that now! Oh, yum!

    Marriage? I’ve been happily married for five and a half years. Wow, has it really been that long? We got married at age 22, which people said was really young, but we wouldn’t have it any other way. Whilst I may be slightly biased, I think marriage is an incredible thing. However, I think too many people don’t take it seriously enough and marry before they are ready for it. It’s not to be taken lightly.

  2. I love the cinnamon/raisin combo! And yes, PB is good on anything and everything.

    I am married so I guess I like marriage! Really I love it. All through college I never thought I’d find anybody to share my life with but I’m glad I spent so many years “alone” because it helped me figure out who I was first — and then wouldn’t you know I met Jason and now we live happily ever after — or something like that. I was 23 and he was 27. I agree with Jennifer (above) that you need to take it seriously and you need to be willing to work on it as well.

  3. GREAT combo! I will try this asap, it’s been too long since pizzert 😀

  4. I think it might be time for me to resurrect that amazing combo tomorrow morning!! 😀

    THAT’S WHAT I WORRY ABOUT!! I am SUPER high-maintenance…what if there isn’t a guy out there who can cope with my special needs?! But seriously Katie you are GORGEOUS and SO DARN LOVELY that I have no doubt you’ll find a Chocolate Covered Dude to share the rest of your life with :)

    1. Haha and if not, WE can always be roommies and grow into toothless 90-year-olds together, eating chocolate and bananas. And maybe not running, because we’d be too old. But then again, some 90-year-olds run marathons… that’s pretty cool!

      1. Katie I sort of think that you will be the sole (or not sole… because Chocolate Covered Dude will probably be with you 😉 ) 99 year old running marathons haha.

      2. LOL chocolate covered dude! Where is that guy hiding???

        Maybe I’ll run a mile at 90… but I don’t even want to run a marathon NOW! Way too far for me ;).

      3. Yay! The three creepy old ladies! Woo hoo!

      4. who said anything about being creepy?? :p

  5. Eric Jaffa says:

    If you marry a vegan, then veganism will be something you share instead of an issue which makes you “high-maintenance.”

  6. Gen says:

    Yummy! That looks so awesome! =D PB makes everything better!

  7. Miriam says:

    I never assumed I would get married and didn’t make it a life goal, but life can surprise you! Now I am 5 months away from being married and I hope we turn into one of those old couples who I think are the cutest!

  8. Diana says:

    That looks delicious! I still have yet to try making pizzerts…

    As for marriage, I just broke up with my fiancee the other night. Through my many years of many relationships, I have finally learned that our first love should always be self-love. I am almost 30 and completely fine with being single. If I never get married, then so be it. I know that I have all the love I need inside of me. It would be wonderful to meet the man who is completely deserving of me, but I am not waiting for him to show up. The best thing I can do is to be honest with myself and my feelings – and stay very focused on my goals and dreams. No one else can complete you! But to find someone who complements you in every way is what we all hope to have one day. By loving ourselves, we will attract the right people. :)

    1. Wow, kudos to you, Diana, for your bravery! I think it’s awesome that you’re so in tune with your true desires and secure. You don’t want to go into something without being 100% sure. I really admire your bravery, girl! :)

      1. I agree completely – I’ve been single for a while and it would be nice to find the “right” bloke but if I don’t, I don’t.
        I’m happy being me and being single and life’s too short to spend it just with someone who isn’t right. I’ve seen so many people miserable in relationships but not willing to be alone… I love what you say, Diane, about not needing anyone to complete you; that’s why I’d never use the phrase “my other half” to describe a boyfriend/husband, because I’m whole!
        Anyway, who could guarantee I’d find someone who agreed with all my “strange” eating habits – maybe your next project should be to set up a chocolate-covered dating site, Katie :-)

      2. Ooh, and I don’t think I’ve EVER had cinnamon/raisin anything – eek! Is that wrong?? :-)

      3. LOL! That’d be too fun! But maybe we should just forget the guys and marry the chocolate ;).

  9. Bryana says:

    Wow Katie, that looks soooo delicious. This whole post reminded me of pb&co’s cinnamon raisin swirl. I bet spreading that on top would be divine! :-)

    1. I LOVE pbco cinn-raisin swirl! My only gripe with the stuff is that when you get 1/2-way through, it’s all raisins, and not enough pb anymore!

      1. Bryana says:

        yeah, I have the same problem. And I find stirring it up before-hand to be too much of a pain. I guess I’m just lazy like that! :-)

  10. Kristine says:

    WHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA?

    incredible!

    I would like one (or 6) for breakfast!

    xo

  11. nadia says:

    Gluten-free pizzert PLEASE!!!! I am dying to know how to make one…
    just imagine: gluten-free almond butter covered pizzert~! yum!!!
    – I agree with you totally on the marriage thing… will be sure to let you know if I ever find someone who can deal with the “high -maintenance” aspect….(still searching) 😉

  12. A. That looks fantastic
    B. Funny you should bring marriage views up. I was just telling my mom that many of my friends don’t have any interest in getting married. They still want a long-term relationship, kids, house, etc… just don’t see the point in marriage. The evolution of views is interesting… I’m guessing a lot of it stems from my generation having seen so many of our parents divorce? I feel lucky to have no gone through that, but I know many friends who struggled watching the deterioration of their parent’s marriages.

  13. Änne says:

    hmm…I don´t like raisins, but for me apples and cinnamon is the perfect combination, so I know what´s for dessert tomorrow^^

    I think marriage is great and THE proof to show everybody the love a couple has for each other. But it is also hard work to stay a strong and harmonic… I´d never marry because it is expected of me to do so (e.g. because I have children). I could also imagine to just give a feast and give an unofficial marriage vow in front of all guests….To me it is the marriage itself, that one is willing to share the rest of his life with his/her beloved, not the official piece of paper…but first I´ll have to find Mr. Right 😉

    1. I agree with you! I always tell my parents they won’t have to worry about paying for an over-the-top wedding for me, because I think that’s ridiculous. Marriage should be about the years after, not an excuse for an extravagant party.

      1. Jennifer JCD says:

        Thank you so much for saying this. I was actually scolded by my inlaws for *not* planning a huge party type wedding. A little garden wedding with tea snacks afterwards was what we wanted, and that’s how it was.

      2. I can’t even imagine what my future inlaws will think of my plans (which will not be compromised) to have an entirely-vegan wedding!

  14. Kathleen says:

    I love Cinnamon and Raisins together! Both of them are featured in my Almond Raisin Chocolate Chip Cookies. :) Yes, they were MADE for each other! 😀

    Hehe, Peanut Butter makes everything better. No, wait. I mean Chocolate. Chocolate makes everything better! :)

    I can’t wait to try this Cinnamon Raisin Pizza!!!! 😀

  15. AHHH i just fell in love with pizzerts yet again….
    and you know what would rock… peanut butter FROSTING on a pizzert.. as well as regular pb because you cant have a pizzert without it, fact.

    I LOVE marriage.. well I mean YES i would like to get married, but I am so with you on how in the WORLD am I gna find someone who can put up with me… but i do have hope that there is someone for everyone- i just hope to find that person sooner rather than later 😛

    1. You’re always welcome to live with Emma and me until you find that someone. (See my comment to Emma, a few above ;).)

  16. OMG and old couples are ADORABLE.. I’m like that creeper girl who takes phone pics of old couples walking in the park..
    thats totally normal though……..

  17. Moni'sMeals says:

    i love this! Yes pb and pb frosting is the best on everything, I use it all day!

    To me marriage is for the individual to decide. I am so happily married and have the best guy so it is easy for me to say how amazing it can be. :) I do however know a ton of people who have dated forever and have no desire to get married and they are so happy. I thnk there should be no rules.

    1. haha like Goldie Hawn! Hey, if it works for her, all the more power to them!

  18. Alyssa says:

    YUM! I love your pizzert’s – Your PB posts are so popular bc pb + chocolate is the best combination EVER

  19. Allyson says:

    This looks absolutely amazing! I adore cinnamon and raisins-I have been eating Peanut Butter co’s cinnamon/raisin swirl peanut butter like crazy for the past week:) I love the commitment aspect of marriage—but I do agree with you the the high divorce rate (especially in the US) is very daunting and scary! I think that the number one reason the divorce rates are so high is because people don’t take relationships seriously these days–it is so normal for people to fly through relationships(not that it is a bad thing–sometimes it just happens that way) so there isn’t a basic foundation of trust and commitment to begin with early on in relationships. Without commitment/seriousness early on in a relationship, I think a marriage is doomed for failure.

  20. Albizia says:

    First – if I were your sister, I would probably beg you to cook for me all the time. You are lucky I am not 😀 .

    As for marriage, I don’t think it’s that important. If there is true love, a piece of paper means nothing. I know people who are perfectly happy although they aren’t married. They love each other, they have kids and everything else. But maybe my deeply hidden romantic side wants to try a wedding dress one day :) .

    1. Hahahaha YOU’re lucky you’re not. I would shove all my test creations in your mouth. And my mom can attest to the fact that they’re not all good ;).

  21. it’s kindof waffely looking, too. great combo

  22. Lisa says:

    soooo agreed cinnamon and raisin are meant for each other! and the only thing I can think of that peanut butter shouldnt go with is perhaps some vegetables. like, can you imagine eating a broccoli dipper in peanut butter? i love my broccoli and i love pb, but i dont know if id mix those! :p

    1. I thought about that too… but then I remembered peanut sauce! Broccoli in peanut sauce is uber yummy!

  23. Hela says:

    I can´t stand raisins. like, at all! but still, there is peanut butter involved, so it´s yum 😉
    I really love the idea of commitment, too. With honesty, faith and love you can make a marriage work and that is what I would love to have for myself. But as you have said – you must find the right person first 😉

  24. Hmmm, what is a good topping to things like this that is low calorie. It seems all toppings-peanut butter and such-are so calorie dense that I am just not comfortable eating them.

    1. Hey girl,
      I’ve not tried it, but I know my friend Melissa really likes PB2. And my tofu icing, from yesterday, is probably much lower-calorie, especially if you leave out the peanut butter.
      Hope that helps!

  25. I love being married. Sometimes its really hard, but at the end of the day, you’re with the one person who completely and totally accepts you for who you are. Amazing!

    You know what else is amazing? This pizzert!

  26. Brandi says:

    I need to get myself to make a pizzert. Maybe a apple cinnamon one like apple pie? The idea of a red velvet one sounds delicious though!

    The whole marriage deal I don’t really worry about because my mind changes constantly what I think about it. Probably 60% of the time I wouldn’t want to get married, but maybe they’ll be a time when I think other wise.

  27. A girl after my own heart! You know about my raisin addiction, aka this is perfect. Plus, cinnamon and raisin is pretty much my favorite combo of all time!

    I can’t wait to be married, but I have the same fears as you – what if he decides he wants out? Scary thought, but I guess that’s where the “leap of faith” comes in:)

  28. 1. I loved Brad and Jen together.
    2. Marriage sounds lovely as long as you find the right person. I would love to make a lifetime of special memories with someone! Buuuut for now I would like to do everything exactly as I want without compromising my beliefs, wants, or Saturday night plans. Definitely not yet mature or selfless enough to have a husband!

    1. They would’ve had very pretty children :(.

  29. I have no desire to get married. I’m not saying that won’t change — it might — but at this point, I can’t see it being something I want.

    And I don’t really know any cute old couples. All of my grandparents are divorced and dead except my step-dad’s parents, and I never really thought of them as cute. More like boring.

  30. Old couples are adorable! The movie UP gets me every time too with that couple. I have been married for almost 16 years and I am 36, so yeah, I believe marriage is a great thing. I happen to be with my best friend though, so it works out great. You have to be willing to change with someone and accept them for who they are completely. Now, that has to go both ways, but it does work. Trust me, we are not the same kids we were when we first met. It is a great thing to be with someone like that…and I am the girl that is high maintenance and thinks she is low maintenance. I hope you find that some day!

    1. I hope so too! I hope you know how lucky you are! Oh, and now I need to go watch the movie UP! :)

  31. kspar66 says:

    I love that ur peanut butter posts are so popular! It is just the Food of the Gods (along with, coconut butter of course!) and everyone relates to it in their own way (using new 7-blend butters, lusting after it bc they’re allergic, using some new powdered stuff, creamy die-hard,etc. etc.!).
    My views on marriage..It’s def not one of my goals, right now I’m imagining a great relationship with someone.. and live together on the sailboat I’m going to sail the world on..but I don’t feel too strongly about having a marriage license and all that, but this is still quite hypothetical. I joke with my friends who are couples (I’m in college) that I’ll be the marriage-renouncing guest at their Thanksgiving table!

  32. Kristie says:

    Love cinnamon and raisin, haven’t tried it with peanut butter but it sounds like a great idea!

    Marriage? I’d have to say I love it. I got married at 19 and have been married 20 years. Since I’ve been married longer than I’ve been single I guess that means it works for me. I know people say it’s work, but I haven’t found that. I think my husband feels it more than I do (does that mean I’m work?!!) But he’s always saying we need to go out more and have date nights. While of course I love a night out, I don’t feel I need it. I love my family and my husband!

    1. Hahaha so cute! I bet my husband’s gonna say that about me; that I’m a lot of work. But hopefully he won’t mind when I’m stuffing his face with raw chocolate treats ;).

  33. Becky says:

    My philosophy is to always live my life to the fullest and reach for the goal of doing what I love most. I know that regardless of whether or not I meet my Prince Charming in the near or distant future, my life is full and I am complete. What better way to meet the man of my dreams than along the path of pursuing what I love to do most?! :) I’m reading PW’s new book right now and I have to say, I wouldn’t mind meeting myself a cowboy!!! :)

  34. Sorry Katie, but peanut butter totally trumps chocolate.

    As for marriage, I’m not a fan. Mostly because our gay brothers and sisters are denied that right. I can’t get behind an institution that discriminates based on who you love. That being said, my BFF is getting married this year, and I’m looking forward to the after-party and the food. I’m making her vegan cupcakes. If I were to ever get married, it’d only be because I want a big ole vegan cake….and a wild reception with lots of booze.

  35. I think I may be addicted to peanut butter. I smother it on everything, especially at breakfast! Help me. 😉
    As for the marriage thing- I know what you mean! All of my friends already ARE married and a few of them have kids! I myself do believe in marriage, but am in no rush to get married.
    I’m 25 and have been with my boyfriend for 3 years and we both know that we want to be with each other for the rest of our lives, we are both fully committed and already act as if we are partners :)
    I think being single can be awesome though! I loved being single and meeting new people,it was so much fun. Right when I wasn’t looking, that’s when Jason came along.
    Old couples are the sweetest thing ever. It takes everything I have not to say “Awwwwwww” when I see them hold hands 😀
    And don’t worry about getting married (or the fact that everyone else IS) It will happen for you, I promise. I don’t necessarily believe that there is ONE person for everybody, but I think you can learn something from all of your relationships and grow from that.
    Okay, I’ve written a book! Stopping….NOW 😉

    1. Book comments are my favorites! Maybe that’s because I am long-winded too, so it’s nice to be the one listening for a change!

  36. That looks so good, Katie!!
    And marriage…geesh. I am in a relationship I actually want to last forever, so my views are probably kind of skewed. I trust him completely, and I do think it is worth the risk. As cheesy as it is, I want to be just like your grandparents:)

  37. chris says:

    for me, my thoughts on marriage changed as i got older. in my early 20s i was terrified of it, seemed too big of a commitment. my ex and i got together when i was 21 and both agreed- no marriage. but as we got older, we started to soften towards the idea and got engaged when i was 26, him 29. then we broke the engagement, split up, got back together for another 2.5 yrs and split up again for good over 3 yrs ago. i was pretty beat up emotionally… but then i met an absolutely spectacular man and we are getting married this oct. i think i am just a late bloomer (i’ll be 34 when we marry, first one for us both) and just wasn’t ready the first time around (nor was ex). now i just get the most secure, warm feeling thinking about marrying this man and it makes me really happy.
    i agree with PP about the right being denied to our gay friends – it’s super unfair. but for me, i think the better way to fight it is legislatively and not with a boycott. sure, it’s just a piece of paper… but, for better or worse, it is the way our society has collectively agreed to acknowledge a strong bond btw two people and i like proclaiming to the world that we are a team, no matter what. the insitution of marriage has evolved over the years (yay to women being more than property these days!) and will def continue to do so as we mold it to fit our needs. i think it is only a matter of time until gays and lesbians gain the right, and i’ll be right there celebrating with them when it happens!

    1. Congrats, Chris!
      (And I’ll be celebrating too. I KNOW that day is inevitable. It’s just a question of when!)

  38. As one who is married, I am absolute lover and fan of it. Being married, although requires work, is the most fulfilling, satisfying, joy-giving thing I’ve ever experienced, besides my relationship with God.

    Your pizzert looks yummy! I’ve yet to give them a try…I’ve been too stuck on the single lady cupcakes : ) But, I will get around to the pizzert SOON.

  39. I love peanut butter. Just did a whole post of PB Recipes. I eat PB every day :)

    Marriage. Not easy. Not for every one. Clearly, since the div rate is over 50% it’s not for everyone.

    I have been married for 10 years, together for 12. Not every day is a walk in the park. Long term relationships, partnerships, marriage take WORK! And there is also a little bit of luck or a hope and a prayer involved…you dont have any guarantees that 8 yrs in with a child and a mortgage that your hubs is going to want to get up and go to work anymore or that he won’t cheat on you. You hope that love is enough and hope what you have with him is enough.

    I wouldn’t be scared to get married. I would rather love and lose than not love at all. And dive in head first. I could give you a bible-length comment here but i will stop :)

    And if someone doesnt want to get “the piece of paper” and wants to be in a relationship without legally marrying, great. Whatever works for them!

  40. I LOVE PB and cinnamon together! As for marriage- it seems so far off, but my parents were already married when they were my age, and are still happily together. I can’t imagine being married that young, but I guess when it works, it works!

  41. I like raisins plain but not in or on anything. For example, raisins in baked goods – no way!!

    Ah, Marriage. Such a loaded question! I don’t know, the high divorce and seeing a lot of my friends’ mothers and my friends get cheated on makes it seem somewhat unappealing. (Girls cheat too, obviously, but in my experience it’s been mostly the guys). Maybe it’s just me, but I feel like relationships and marriages have become so much less sacred and important. Cheating seems so ubiquitous nowadays, it makes me sad :(

    I don’t think people should get married just to get married. I think it’s a really big step that many people can jump into without a lot of thought. I started dating my bf 2.5 years ago and if you would have asked me then if I could see marriage in my future, I would have said no way! However, as I get older, I am definitely warming to the idea. With the right person, and with lots of dedication and commitment, it seems like it could be something pretty great.

    1. Ugh, yeah cheating. It does seem like it’s every other guy. And they even make the excuse that it’s “sex addiction” like they can’t help it or something. Really ridiculous and cowardly.

  42. how do you come up with these things?! ahh looks SO delicious

  43. bitt says:

    cant wait for a GF version! i love cinnamon and raisin, and both by themselves too. big fan.

    i think marriage is good if you find the right person. it’s not a must though. i wasn’t going to necessarily get married with my current husband but after we were together for so long (6 years) it felt right. i think if you meet the right person, you will know if it’s right, and you don’t have to rush it for anyone else.

    i love older couples too. my grandparents were very cute together. i miss them.

    1. I miss mine too :(. My grandma was always yelling at my grandpa because he had no fashion sense!

  44. Jennifer says:

    I totally think old couples are the cutest thing in the world! But, of course, it took them many years and many struggles to get there.

    Funny that you are asking this question because I’ve been thinking a lot about the fact that in any relationship it just has to be the right moment for both people involved.

    But, then, of course there are things that always go together: peanut butter and chocolate. Hmm….Does that make peanut butter a bigamist or is it “cheating” on jelly?

    1. lol! Jelly, chocolate, banana… pb really gets around!

  45. Hannah says:

    I don’t mind the idea of marriage, butI’ve never been someone who imagines my own, or really believes it will happen for me. Compare that to my housemate, who has bridal magazines in the bathroom for reading material and planned every detail of her wedding when she was under 10! Blows my mind…

    P.S. I add cinnamon to everything. Everything. As I do with peanut butter :)

  46. Today is actually my grandparents’ 65th wedding anniversary. When my grandfather looks at my grandmother, you can still see in his eyes how absolutely in love with her he still is. They make me believe in marriage, and more than that, in love :)

    1. Aww, happy anniversary to your grandparents, Gabriela! My grandparents were like that… even when they fought, it was cute!

  47. Cinnamon raisin miiiight just be my most favored flavor combination ever. Add peanut butter to the mix and now you’ve really got yourself a winner!
    This pizzert looks awesome, Katie! Now, I just need to make one of your pizzerts!

  48. Elle says:

    your pizzert looks so good! everything is better with pb on it. 😉
    old couples are so adorable! eek, i donno how i feel about marriage. i know it’s not for me right now, not until i find someone perfect who is also willing to put up with me, haha.

  49. Char says:

    I agree with you on Brad & Jen! They should get back together 😛

    And elderly couples are so totally adorable :)

    …as for love and marriage, I don’t know that I believe in it. I was in love with someone once before, who slept with my friend on our 2 year anniversary while I was in Thailand. Here I am, three years after our break up, and I FINALLY trusted someone enough to fall in love. He was “perfect”: he held doors for me, gave me kisses on the head, told me he loved, was VEGAN, was mature, smart, fun to be with….then all of a sudden told me that he meant none of it and that this wasn’t right for him. Ouch. Not to mention my friends boyfriends/husbands who flirt with me. So love? I don’t think so.

    1. Yikes :(. See, it’s stuff like that that makes me scared of marriage/trusting someone!

  50. i would love the gluten free pizzert recipe! i love marriage, i’ve been for 3.5yrs and i am so ridiculously in love with him it’s not even funny. we are such a great team and we honor and respect each other daily. the biggest thing is to accept each other exactly how you are so you can grow TOGETHER as you age. it’s a beautiful thing but def requires equal devotion :)

    1. Awwwwwww :).
      Basically, it’s just the same, except use 1/3 cup plus 1T garbanzo flour (45g) and 3T coconut flour (24g). Add a little more water (120g, or 1/2 cup). And cook for 14 mins. Also, be sure to spray/oil your pan really well, as my first attempt fell apart. But it was a delicious mess! It does taste a little hummus-y, but I love that. If you don’t, you could maybe sub quinoa flour or rice flour? lol I don’t know much about gf baking! But I’m learning; it’s fun!

  51. Peanut butter trumps chocolate in my opinion *ducks at thrown objects* 😉

    I’ve been married once before and divorced. It was not the right thing to do for a number of reasons, but I’m jaded against marriage. I’d like to be married again someday, but I’m also not in any hurry to get there. :)

    1. Oy, you and Bianca! Crazy girls… but I guess that means more chocolate for me ;).

      1. 😉 That’s definitely what it means!

  52. Vicki says:

    To me, ALL foods are better without peanut butter. Can’t stand peanuts. Bleughhh.

    Pizzert looks tasty though 😀

    Marriage is something I’ve always looked forward to, even as a child. I am lucky enough to have two parents who are in a loving relationship with one another, and I can’t wait to enter into that kind of bond with someone special:)

    1. Holy yum that looks amazing!
    2. I was never psyched on marriage. I wanted to get married, but I wasn’t really all that concerned about when or how. That changed after so much time with my future hubby. Not only do I love the idea of marriage now, but I love the idea of a ceremony. For me, it took being with the right person to get me interested :)

    I think that the idea of marriage is wonderful– being committed to someone whom you enjoy and love. However– if you decide they aren’t right for you, are in an abusive relationship, etc. and you are already married, the divorce process is so difficult (and all up to a judge- no thanks!), especially if you have children. Marriage is really all about the ritual– having a celebration of a union with food, family, and friends. You can do that without all the legal complications!

    Of course, I don’t know what I will do when the time for that comes. But these are my thoughts a the moment. My mother has shared her experiences with me, which has been helpful. I don’t think that hurdle will come for some time!

    Umm gluten free pizza recipe please!! And marriage is totally worth it. I’m not saying it is easy, it so isn’t. But if you live your life without taking risks (marriage is a risk that is well worth it), is it really worth living??

    1. Basically, it’s just the same, except use 1/3 cup plus 1T garbanzo flour (45g) and 3T coconut flour (24g). Add a little more water (120g, or 1/2 cup). And cook for 14 mins. Also, be sure to spray/oil your pan really well, as my first attempt fell apart. But it was a delicious mess! It does taste a little hummus-y, but I love that. If you don’t, you could maybe sub quinoa flour or rice flour? lol I don’t know much about gf baking! But I’m learning; it’s fun!

  58. well cinnamon raisin just happens to be my favorite combo ever! i have got to try this pizzert…..now you got me thinking about tons of other vehicles for cinna-raisin deliciousness! Single lady muffins possibly?

  59. I have been craving a pizzert all day, thanks to reading this post at breakfast haha. Please please please won’t you post your gf recipe??? I tried making it once and it totally did. not. work.

    1. oops sorry.. didn’t mean to post that… :/

    This is going to sound strange coming from someone who is getting married in exactly 100 days, but I don’t think marriage is as important as many people make it out to be. Honestly I love my fiance more than life, and have been with him minus one break for the past 8 years. However, I don’t feel like anything magical is going to happen when we sign that marriage certificate or walk down the aisle. I want to get married more for the celebration of us being a family, than to make it “real”.

    I think it’s crazy in a way how so many people are dying to “just get married already” when it’s not about the marriage, it’s about a true and complete friendship-partnership-loving relationship. Personally I like the idea of growing old with my best friend, but if I didn’t have him, I think I would seek the companionship over the actual marriage certificate. That being said – when you find your best friend you stop becoming high maintenance because they simply love you as you. Veganism, running, reading, yoga habits… they don’t make me a difficult person, they just make me a me!

  62. I made a pizzert this morning, using a combination of tapioca flour and sorghum meal (to make it gluten free), with chopped frozen banana, mixed seeds, dried cranberries and cacao nibs. It was yummy! It came out a bit like a giant pancake (which I think was partly due to the fact that I added some Xantham Gum to compensate for the lack of gluten), but it was super tasty – I ate the whole thing (half for breakfast, and half mid-morning).

    With regards to marriage – I’ve been married almost two years and think it’s the best thing ever. It is definitely not to be entered into lightly and is a lot of hard work, but it’s so rewarding, and I think there are few things better than sharing your life with your best friend.

    1. Ooo sounds good! I’ll be sure to give your comment a shout out when I do my pizzert post, so others can see your recipe variation :).

    No, I cannot think of a food that doesn’t taste better (fabulous) with peanut butter! And actually, I have thought about this very same question in the past and the answer is always the same. Everything is better with (peanut) butter! You could probably dip my flip flop in peanut butter and call it dinner!

    1. I think this might be the funniest comment I’ve ever received LOL!

  64. Love your recipes, Katie! Your marriage question is kind of a loaded one! I guess I have to ways of viewing it: one as a practicing Marriage and Family Therapy, and the other as an actually newly married person. For my husband and I we both knew from the get-go that our faiths were very important to us…and we also knew that because of this faith we both viewed marriage as sacred and pretty binding for life. This gives me a lot of security because I know that no matter how bad the conflict, we will always try our best to work it out before ever considering the “D” word. We also dated for about 6 years so we were WELL INFORMED about what we were getting into with eachother!
    As a marriage and family therapist, I know that marriage (and relationships in general) can be pretty tricky…and the media doesn’t help when it’s portraying that we should always “feel” in love. The fact of the matter is, love isn’t always a feeling…it’s a decision and a commitment. Feelings will always ebb and flow…but it’s falling back on this remberance of the commitment that I believe keeps people together. Also, it’s hard because we live in a very “ME” oriented culture (ex- do whatever makes YOU happy). But, in marriage/relationships, this is no good…it’s about doing what makes your partner happy…and more than likely…they will reciprocate.
    On the flip side…i think that single people should enjoy their singleness…it’s a perfect opportunity to learn yourself, to drop everything and have fantastic experiences, to travel, to pursue your dreams, etc…because when you’re tied to someone else, you can’t always fly on a whim or do what you want to do because the other person is relying on you for some stability (and probably a steady paycheck). Perhaps, even then, you’ll be rooted by owning a home so you’re not as free to pick up and go travel or go back to school… or whatever! It is this time of development that makes someone an even better for a partner in the future!

    Just my thoughts:)

    1. I love how you said that love isn’t always a feeling, but a commitment. SO true! Society really does mess us up (which is obvious when you look at how few divorces there were many years ago). I know my parents have had a ton of trying times, where both wanted out and definitely didn’t “feel” in love. But I–and they–are very glad that they stuck through those times. I’m lucky because I have some very good role models :).

  65. Love the combo of cinnamon and raisin! They were definitely meant to be together…like Brad and Jen! :( So sad!

    First off let me say that I am only 6 months out of a divorce…so I’m still a bit bitter. Everyone tells me not to worry…that I will find “The One” in time, but you know what? In the time I’ve had alone to find myself and become an independent woman, I don’t think I WANT to find The One! I have major trust issues and I almost feel like any guy that agreed to date me would just be submitting himself to nightly interrogation and skeptical looks. Plus, just thinking back on how much money/time/energy was involved in planning my wedding makes me feel like a complete fool! My dress in now sitting in the local consignment shop…at least if it sells, I’ll make a little cash! :-/

    I know this post is old, but I thought I would comment because I have an opinion!! haha

    I believe that when people go in to marriage with the perspective that someday, if it doesn’t work out, they would get divorced, then they are ultimately setting themselves up for failure! The kind of people the sign annulments, “just in case,” are the ones that make the 50% statistics of divorces in America. Because let’s face it, anyone who has ever been in a relationship knows that it’s not all daisies and roses sometimes! Life gets in the way, we get grumpy, we get moody, we get selfish, and by golly, sometimes we want to rip each others heads off! Plus, as humans, we go through seasons of “bad times” in our life. But that doesn’t mean marriages should fail. That just means husband and wife need to work a bit harder at it! Marriage is more about the act of commitment to the person you married. It’s honoring them, supporting them, etc. If you go in to marriage deciding that you will try and work through any problems and issues, you’re better off. I don’t think it’s so black and white though. I think some divorces are justifiable and right. But I also believe that many people give up too easily. When you find that person, though, you will know! AND….you will know him so well, that you will be able to gauge his level of commitment and seriousness about marriage. If he’s of the perspective that divorce is just out of the question, you know he’s serious :)
