Before we get to breakfast, I need to tell you guys a little story about what happened the other day. I’ve spoken a lot of my wonderful dog, Bear. He’s a giant, fluffy, loveable pup. He’s been my best buddy for just about half my life.

After moving home to San Diego this past summer, I managed to find an apartment that let me have a big dog, so I stole Bear from my dad’s and brought him to live with me so he could keep me company while I’m home baking and working. [Read more…]

This Chocolate Peanut Butter Chia Pudding tastes like dessert, but it's made with wholesome ingredients that you can enjoy for breakfast! It's gluten-free, vegan, packed with protein, and it tastes like a peanut butter cup - what's not to love?

Since coming off of my first Whole30, I haven’t gone too crazy with eating everything I wasn’t allowed to during it. In fact, most of my meals are still compliant. I like eating that way, and even though I’m not crazy strict about it, I’m still trying to eat more cleanly and as healthily as possible, while still keeping things delicious :)

Of course, I’m tasting my baked goods, but trying not to eat too much of them, and keeping things mostly Paleo too, so I’m not throwing my body too off track. One of the only off limits foods that’s made it’s way firmly back into my diet is peanut butter. [Read more…]

Despite my many years of making homemade granola, I never get sick of it. Neither the process of making the granola, nor the product churned out of my kitchen ever gets old or tired.

The now-ritualistic process soothes me – measuring out the nuts and grains, adding a whole ton of warm spices, deciding which sweeteners to use and which add-ins I feel like that week. Of course, I definitely don’t get sick of the incredible smell that fills my apartment while it’s baking slowly in the oven. [Read more…]
