Chocolate Swirl Banana Bread

The next best thing to homemade banana bread is Chocolate Swirl Banana Bread made with melted chocolate chips. I love it with my morning coffee.
Chocolate and banana go together about as good as banana and peanut butter... or chocolate and peanut butter, for that matter. I've added chocolate chips to banana bread before and its downright wonderful, but this time I wanted to do something a little bit different and melt down those chocolate chips to make somewhat of a swirl pattern. Who doesn't love a good chocolate swirl, after all?
The chocolate portion of this banana bread is different than you might think because the chocolate didn't come from cocoa powder - it came from real dark chocolate that I melted down. Huge difference, in my opinion. The kids loved having a little slice of this in their lunch and I quite enjoyed warming it up with a bit of butter and enjoying it with a hot cup of coffee before everyone else woke up. Its the little things, right?
Chocolate Swirl Banana Bread

INGREDIENTS:

  • 2 cups all purpose flour

Pesto Cheese Bombs

These cheese bombs are a thing of beauty. First of all, it doesn't get much easier than cutting up some string cheese, and if you're a mom you most certainly already have cheese sticks in your refrigerator. To make the pull apart, all you need to do is wrap some dough around the cheese. BOOM. Done. But wait. You know they could be oh so much better with a little something extra.
Ooey gooey melty Pesto Cheese Bombs with marinara sauce are super easy to make and will please any crowd. Make this appetizer for your next game day party!
Pesto Cheese Bombs

INGREDIENTS:

  • 16 ounces biscuit dough

Pesto Cheese Bombs


INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Place a ramekin or ceramic bowl in the center of a springform pan and grease the inside edges of the pan as well as the outside of the bowl to prevent sticking.
  2. Split each biscuit into two by dividing the layers, totaling 16 rounds of dough. Cut each of the cheese sticks into quarters. Wrap each chunk of cheese in the biscuit dough and seal edges to create a ball.
  3. Add pesto to a small bowl and roll each ball of dough in the pesto to coat. Add to the pan in a ring shape and cover with any remaining pesto. Bake with a layer of foil under the pan to catch any grease that might leak out for 35-40 minutes or until golden brown and some melted cheese is visible.

Sweet + Spicy Cauliflower Bites + Maple Pecan Waffles


INSTRUCTIONS:
Cauliflower Bites:

  1. Preheat your oven to 450 degrees Fahrenheit and prepare your baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Then in a medium bowl, add water, flour, sea salt, black pepper, smoked paprika, dried parsley, and garlic powder and whisk together until fully combined. Set aside.
  3. In a separate bowl, add bread crumbs and also set aside.
  4. Now dip each cauliflower into batter (shaking off any excess) and then toss into bread crumbs. Then lay each cauliflower side by side on the baking sheet (about an inch apart). Repeat until all cauliflower are coated. **NOTE: Be sure to SHAKE OFF any excess coating.**
  5. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown and "crunchy" looking. **NOTE: Be sure to flip each cauliflower on opposite side half way through baking time**
  6. In the meantime, combine the honey, and hot sauce in a medium pot (on medium-high heat) and let it simmer for 2-3 minutes until bubbly. Reduce heat to low and add thickener (arrowroot or starch + water mixture), whisking until well combined and sauce becomes thick.
  7. Once cauliflower bites are nice and crispy, remove from oven and let cool slightly for 5 minutes.
  8. Toss them GENTLY into the sauce until fully coated. Add coated cauliflower back to baking sheet and place them back in the oven (turning oven on broil) for about 5-6 minutes.
  9. Once sauce has thickened and appears to be 'sticky' unto the bites, remove from oven and set aside.

Maple Pecan Waffles:

  1. Preheat your waffle maker to desired setting–medium-high heat worked for me!
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the organic all-purpose flour, cinnamon, baking powder, and sea salt.
  3. Add the oil, Almond milk, vanilla extract, maple syrup, and apple cider vinegar in the center of the dry mixture (after creating a well) and stir everything together well (using a spatula) until fully incorporated. Add the toasted pecans and stir again. Now, let the batter sit for 2-3 minutes while it slightly thickens and rises, which means that the ingredients have activated.
  4. Next, spoon batter into your waffle maker (1/4 cup approximately) and cook according to your waffle iron’s instructions.
  5. Once each waffle completes, add to a baking sheet and place them in the oven on the lowest setting (to keep them warm). Repeat until all waffles are made.
  6. To serve–stack waffles (whole or cut), top with cauliflower bites, sliced strawberries (if desired) and drizzle with maple syrup.
  7. Bon Appetit!

2 Ingredient Dough Pretzels - Weight Watchers

The secret to these self rising flour pretzels is fat free Greek yogurt. Fat free Greek yogurt is 0 points on the Weight Watchers Freestyle plan and is one of the main ingredients in these pretzels. The crazy thing is that you cannot taste the yogurt at all in these pretzels. My favorite yogurt to use is Fage Total 0% Greek Yogurt.
2 Ingredient Dough Pretzels - Weight Watchers
This greek yogurt pretzels recipe uses self rising flour which you can buy pre-made or make yourself. I share an easy self rising flour recipe here. This allows you to make these pretzels with no yeast and not having to wait for the dough to rise.
To make 2 homemade pretzels, combine 1/2 cup of self rising flour and 1/2 cup of Fage Total 0% Greek Yogurt in a bowl until a dough starts to form. If you just want to make 4 pretzels, just double the ingredients.
Knead the dough on a floured surface and divide into two equal parts. You will want to make sure that the two pieces of dough are of equal weight. This scale really comes in handy.

Peach Crumble Bars

These peach bars are delicious with almond flavor.  Crunchy crumbles and soft peaches make a nice combination.
Today I am sharing my peach crumble bars which are as delicious .  These bars are so easy to make as well;  I am using the same dough for the crust and crumbles.
In today’s recipe, I use oatmeal in the dough.  If you want to try my strawberry bars with oatmeal, you can use this crust.
Let’s see the ingredients of this delicious recipe
Peach Crumble Bars

INGREDIENTS:
Crust and Crumbles:

  • 155 grams (3/4 cup) granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 140 grams (1 cup) all-purpose flour
  • 130 grams (1 cup and 1/3 cup) rolled oats
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt (optional)
  • 150 g (⅔ cup) unsalted butter, melted and cooled

Peach Filling:

  • 450 grams (2 cups) peaches, peeled and cut into small pieces*
  • 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract
  • 30 grams (2 tablespoons) granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
Peach Crumble Bars


INSTRUCTRIONS:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F(177°C). Grease 8 inch (20cm) square oven-proof dish and line the bottom and sides with parchment paper, about 2 inches(5 cm) of overhang on each side.
  2. Chop the peaches into almost  ½-1 inch (1,25-2,5 cm) pieces. First, mix the peaches with lemon juice and then with the almond extract. Next, toss with cornstarch and sugar. Set aside. 
  3. Mix the flour, rolled oats, sugar, cinnamon, salt( if using) well in a medium bowl.  Then add the melted butter and stir with a spoon or spatula.
  4. Place ⅔ of the mixture into an oven-proof dish that is lined with parchment paper.  Use your hands or a spoon to spread the mixture evenly.
  5. Next, cover the crust with the peach mixture but leave the excess liquid in the bowl.  You may want to use this liquid later if there is too much left. ( You can place that liquid into a small pan, and when the mixture thickens you can remove it from the heat and drizzle the sauce on top of the baked bars. )
  6. Sprinkle the remaining dough over the peaches. If you like you can make some big crumble pieces by squeezing crumble mixture in your hand before sprinkling.  Use your fingertips to press to the crumbles so they can stick to peaches. 
  7. Bake for 33-35 minutes until the top becomes golden brown and the crumbles are crunchy. Let it cool at room temperature for almost 1 hour.   Then keep in the fridge for extra 1,5 hours until it is completely cool so you can have nicely cut bars.

THIS HONEY, LEMON, AND CINNAMON DRINK WILL HELP YOU LOSE 8 POUNDS IN ONE WEEK

In addition to helping to lower bad cholesterol, cinnamon contributes to regulating blood sugar. It also has antibacterial properties and cleanses the bad bacteria from the stomach.
It is not recommended to consume more than one teaspoon (5 g) daily for six weeks (or shorter) without a break.

Granola Yogurt Cups (or Bars)

Granola Yogurt Cups, filled with yogurt and topped with your favorite fresh fruit, will be the star of your next brunch gathering! Or make these cups into granola yogurt bars for a convenient grab-n-go option.
Typically fruit, yogurt and granola bowls are my breakfast of choice. Sometimes, though, I really like to jazz it up. And these Granola Yogurt Cups are a new favorite.

These would be great with strawberries, chopped almonds, mini chocolate chips or a combination.
Have you guys tried Light & Fit Yogurt? I’m a huge fan, not only of the taste but I also love that these are packed with 12 grams of protein and 80 calories per 5.3 ounce serving. They’re so delicious and they are such a great addition to my breakfast recipes.

  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp garlic salt
  • 1 1/2 cups (180g) plain (all-purpose) flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • ½ tsp celery salt
  • 1 tsp dried thyme
  • 1 tsp chilli flakes
  • vegetable oil for deep frying - at least 1 litre/four cups

Korean Sauce:

  • 4 tbsp brown sugar
  • 4 tbsp soy sauce
  • 2 cloves garlic peeled and minced
  • 2 tbsp gochujang paste
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 2 tsp minced ginger
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil

To Serve:

  • 1 small red onion - thinly sliced
  • Small bunch of fresh coriander - cilantro, roughly chopped
  • 2 tsp black and white sesame seeds
  • 1/4 cucumber - chopped into small pieces
Korean Chicken Bao


INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. Start by making the bao buns.
  2. Place the flour, sugar, salt and yeast in a bowl and mix together.
  3. Add the milk, warm water and butter to a jug and stir together until the butter melts. Stir the liquid mixture into the flour mixture at first with a spoon, and then with your hands. Turn out onto a floured surface and knead for 10 minutes. Alternatively, you can do this in a mixer fitted with a dough hook.
  4. Place the dough in an oiled bowl. Cover (with clingfilm or a damp tea toweand leave to prove until doubled in size - about 90 minutes - 2 hours).
  5. Meanwhile, start on the Korean Chicken. Place the chicken in a bowl. Add the buttermilk, salt, pepper and garlic salt. Mix together, cover and place in the fridge to marinade for at least 1 hour.
  6. After the dough has proved, tip it out of the bowl onto a floured surface. Knead the dough again and split into 20 balls. Place a piece of baking parchment on your work surface and roll each ball into an oval on top of the parchment, using a rolling pin – approx. 6cm x 9cm.
  7. Brush the ovals with the olive oil and fold each oval over, using a chopstick in the middle to fold over to leave a little space in the fold (so the oil is on the inside of the fold). Remove the chopstick and place each bun onto a small piece of baking parchment.
  8. Place the buns on the trays - still on the the baking parchment - as this will help you to move them later. Cover each tray with clingfilm or a carrier bag (ensuring the clingfilm doesn't touch the dough - or it will stick) and leave to prove for a further hour, until puffed up.
  9. Preheat the oven to a low heat (to keep cooked chicken warm). Heat a large pan of vegetable oil (or preheat your deep fat fryer) until hot (you can test by dropping a small cube of bread in there, if it rises immediately to the top and starts to bubble rapidly, it’s hot enough). You’ll need at least 1 litre (4 cups) of oil.
  10. Mix together the crispy coating ingredients in a small bowl. Take the chicken out of the fridge. Lift a piece from the buttermilk and allow the excess to drip off. Dredge the chicken in the crispy coating mixture – ensuring it’s fully covered. Place on a tray and repeat until all of the chicken is coated.
  11. Once the oil is hot enough, add in 10-12 of the chicken pieces. You can add more or less depending on the size of your pan, just be sure not to overcrowd the chicken. Cook for 3-5 minutes until golden brown and cooked in the middle. You can check this by cutting open a piece of chicken, if it’s no longer pink in the middle, it’s cooked.
  12. Place on a tray in the oven to keep warm whilst you cook the rest of the chicken.
  13. Meanwhile, put a large steamer pan on to boil. Working in batches, place the buns in the steamer (you can keep them on the baking parchment and steam for 10 minutes. I use a double layer steam pan - placing four buns in each layer. Once steamed, place on a warm plate.
  14. While the chicken and bao buns are cooking, make the sauce. Place the gochujang, honey, sugar, soy sauce, garlic, ginger, vegetable oil and sesame oil in a saucepan and stir together.
  15. Bring to the boil, then simmer for 5 minutes until thickened.
  16. Place all of the cooked chicken in a bowl and pour the sauce over the chicken. Toss together to coat. You can leave the chicken chunks whole, or slice up if you prefer.
  17. Carefully open the steamed bao buns and stuff with the Korean chicken. Top with slices of red onion, cucumber, fresh coriander (cilantro) and sesame seeds before serving.

Low Carb Blackberry Cheesecakes

These individual no-bake low carb blackberry cheesecakes are sugar free, gluten free, and keto friendly!
As you may have noticed I'm not a BIG dessert kind of girl. To clarify, I like desserts, but I don't go in for big pies and cakes very often that serve 8-12. The main reason for this it is usually just my husband and I in the house, and if there is a delicious dessert sitting around in the fridge I want it to get eaten. By me. Then the portion sizes start to increase, and the carb count goes off the scale.
This recipe comes in two stages. Stage one is in two parts. In a small bowl, whisk heavy cream and vanilla extract until stiff peaks form. Cover and place in the fridge.
Then make a blackberry syrup in a small saucepan from fresh blackberries, low carb sweetener (I used Lakanto – get 20% off if you use coupon code SAFTC!), and a little water.
