Vegan banana bread – so yum!

Bananas are a staple at our house. They’re always on hand, which means sometimes we have a few get beyond the happy eating phase, lol. This time, rather than freeze them for nice cream or smoothies I wanted to try a vegan banana bread that was still relatively healthy. That’s where this beauty was born! Unlike some of myContinue reading “Vegan banana bread – so yum!”

Vegan waffles – fluffy and gluten free!

Several Christmases ago I got a waffle maker just like this one as a gift and we’ve never looked back!  Almost every Saturday I make waffles for the family. It’s become our “special breakfast day” tradition. But it’s one I don’t often participate in the eating of!

Vegan creamer – fancy coffee

Peanut butter granola – A high protein breakfast the kids will love

I make a wonderful slice regularly, but on one occasion I messed up a peanut butter version of the recipe and it wouldn’t stick together into bars. I didn’t want to waste it so I made it into peanut butter granola and it was decadently delicious! Wow, did my little man love it. He eats it asContinue reading “Peanut butter granola – A high protein breakfast the kids will love”

Oat milk – an easy, inexpensive option

If you’re thinking about switching to a non-dairy milk, need an alternative to nut milk, or would just like to try something new, oat milk could be a good option. Unlike nut milk, the oats don’t require soaking overnight, which makes it a speedy option when you need it in a pinch. Oats are alsoContinue reading “Oat milk – an easy, inexpensive option”

Almond Milk – make your own!

I love almond milk. I made the switch from dairy milk about four years ago and I’m never going back! I went through many different brands and varieties until I found the one I liked best. Recently, I came across a recipe in The Moon Juice Cookbook (Amanda Chantal Bacon) that made making it myself sound oh,Continue reading “Almond Milk – make your own!”
