Nutella Granola Bars

Sadly, many granola bars on the market these days are nothing more than glorified candy bars, with as much sugar as a Snickers and a long list of ingredients you can’t even pronounce. But not only is it possible to make a naturally-sweetened granola bar recipe that actually IS healthy, you might end up liking them so […]

Lemon Cookie Dough Bites

Easy to make. Easy to store. Easy to eat. Lemon might be the most underrated dessert flavor of all time. I’m sorry to say I’ve neglected it on this blog, having posted only a handful of lemon recipes (my favorite of which is the Healthy Lemon Squares recipe) in over six years of blogging.  But […]

Single Serving Cinnamon Roll

Today’s guest post comes from a new friend I met just last week on Instagram. Immediately, I fell in love with not only the beautiful photography on her blog, but also with her catchy—and often humorous—writing style (see below). Oh, and the fact that she has a recipe for single-serving cinnamon rolls… How can you […]

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars

True story: I was once on national television… in my underwear. 😕 It was when I was 5 years old, on a popular children’s show similar to Sesame Street. The goal of the segment was to teach young children how to get dressed by themselves: this was in the early 90s, therefore footage is thankfully […]

Oatmeal Muffins

I’ll admit I don’t always eat a “perfect” healthy diet. Especially in December, filled with so many holiday parties and family gatherings, it’s not uncommon for a few too many drinks and way too many Christmas cookies to sneak their way into my life. Not to mention the homemade chocolate fudge, the bourbon pecan pie, […]

Crock Pot Oatmeal

Lately, my favorite breakfast is a giant bowl of creamy crock pot oatmeal, hot from the slow cooker. It brings back memories of visiting my grandparents’ house as a young girl. Grandpa believed steel-cut oats were the healthiest food you could eat, and he’d get up every morning at 5 AM to make sure that […]

Oatmeal Raisin Cookie Larabars

These are my new favorite homemade Larabars: Only, they’re not really Larabars at all. I stumbled upon the recipe while making Hot Fudge Brownie Larabars. The hot-fudge Larabars used to be my favorite. But their place has now been usurped… by a non-chocolate bar?! Yes, these oatmeal cookie bars are so good I like them […]

Cinnamon Roll Baked Oatmeal

Cinnamon roll baked oatmeal. Frosted with my favorite Healthy Cream Cheese Frosting. I blame Ikea. It is impossible to walk out of that store not craving cinnamon rolls. The aroma of their freshly-baked rolls permeates the entire warehouse. I swear, it’s like they’ve sprayed cinnamon-scented perfume throughout the store. When I was little, I thought Ikea was […]

Three Ingredient Peanut Butter Balls

Happy Monday, chocolate sprinkles! Happy Monday? Meh, who likes Mondays? Not me. Not during the school year, anyway. But you know what can turn even a Monday into a funday? Sweet treats! And the treats I’m offering today have only two ingredients, which means chasing away the Monday blues has never been easier… or more […]

Voluminous Oatmeal Trick

Do you ever wish for an overflowing oatmeal bowl? As opposed to the measly amount you get from one serving of oats? If you answered “yes” to the above, then the Voluminous Oatmeal Trick is for you! *Ends sales pitch* What is the Voluminous Oatmeal Trick? The idea is to add more than the recommended […]
