Green Protein Smoothie

This green smoothie is packed with protein… a perfect start of the day, and so delicious too.

I created this on a whim many years ago and it’s something my family and I still enjoy. In fact, this was my then-toddler’s first time trying spinach, and I was one happy mama when I gobbled this up (in a bowl, then), and said he loved it! he still loves it to this day and so do I.

Almond Butter Pancakes

These are my self-appointed, self-titled “famous” Almond Butter Pancakes. I like the idea of having a recipe that everyone in the family loves and knows of me, and so far, these pancakes are close to grabbing that title. One, because my family actually do like them — so far, this is the most requested thing I make in my family.

Blueberry Banana Muffins (Gluten-Free, Sugar-Free, Paleo)

A month ago, I ventured into baking with more fruit since I am trying to cut down on sugar in my home — for my family, but also for myself. And, although it may be quite obvious, fruit is still the best, healthiest way to sweeten bakes. (Well, that and honey.)

I’ve been experimenting with more natural sweeteners in my baked goods, as you’ll see in this recipe, and I have to admit even I am quite surprised at how easy it is to bake without sugar — with natural sweeteners and lots of fruit, you can still satisfy your sweet tooth in your baked goods.
