Homemade Protein-Packed Peanut Butter Cornflakes

Cereal is definitely a classic breakfast item. Remember waking up as a kid, pouring yourself a bowl of Cornflakes, and drowning it in 2% milk? Or if you were running late, dumping the Cornflakes in a Ziploc bag and practically sprinting to the bus? This was basically my childhood in a nutshell, although sometimes substituted…

Almond Butter-Stuffed Banana Bread Muffins

I like keeping things short & sweet. Especially in the morning. Getting ready in the morning can really take me anywhere from 30 minutes to two hours, including breakfast, getting dressed, and just generally preparing myself for the day ahead. Of course, there are those days (like today!) when I have to wake up at…

Chocolate Chip Coconut Pecan Bars

Now that school’s started, let me tell you, it’s going to be really hard for me to stay healthy. Yesterday’s back-to-school big sis little sis picnic serves as a prime example. I may have started my day off right with this delicious, Pink Protein Breakfast Smoothie, but after waiting the whole school day (at least, until 1:30!)…

Cinnamon Roll Pancakes with Coconut Cream Icing

I have a confession to make. Although I wrote that this recipe serves two, that’s most likely a huge fib. Because if you taste these pancakes, you won’t want to share. And will most likely end up eating the whole batch yourself (cough: exactly what I did this morning). One of my favorite recipes to…

Brown Sugar Butterscotch Cookies

These cookies are, in short, the bomb. When I began this blog, I’d never thought cookies could be healthy. Or, at the very least, guilt-free. I was used to the classic 150 and above calorie cookie, made with butter, sugar, and plenty of white flour. Three ingredients with next to no nutritional value. And sure,…

Cacao Coconut Butter

I’ve always dreamt of making my own Nutella. Unluckily, whenever actually pursuing this dream crosses my mind, we never have hazelnuts. And it’s not like we have peanuts either, so I could make chocolate peanut butter. Or even an adequate amount of almonds (we go through almonds like money in my house) for cocoa-almond butter.…
