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 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.

    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!

    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.

    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!

    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:)

      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 :).

    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 🙂
