Start your morning with Peanut Butter & Jelly Oatmeal for a healthy & delicious breakfast treat! This gluten-free and vegan oatmeal is sweetened with a ripe banana.When I was younger, I did not like oatmeal…at all. All I had ever really tried was the instant packet variety which, in all it’s mushiness, didn’t really do anything for me. It wasn’t until I was in my late teens when my sister showed me how she makes her oatmeal – with rolled oats and sweetened with just a banana – that I finally started to appreciate it.

Now, I often crave a warm bowl of banana-sweetened oatmeal, especially on the upcoming cool fall mornings and cold winter days. But even with the still-warm weather, I can appreciate the deliciousness of a good bowl of oatmeal and it’s magical ability to keep me full for hours. [Read more…]

This healthier candy recipe is only 5 ingredients, and uses an easy refined sugar free chocolate recipe.Making copycat candies, but way healthier, has become a recent favorite activity of mine. It started with these paleo + vegan Twix Bars, moved onto these Girl Scout cookie copycat Samoa Bars, candy-inspired Almond Joy Brownies, and then these homemade peanut butter cups.

The homemade peanut butter cups got me all excited (because I love a good peanut butter cup – or a peanut butter anything, really) and I started coming up with all sorts of peanut butter cup related recipes. [Read more…]

These dessert bars are gluten-free, grain-free and refined sugar-free.It’s peanut butter jelly time! Every time I think about peanut butter and jelly, the peanut butter jelly time song starts playing involuntarily on repeat in my head. In fact, it’s been playing in my head non-stop as I’ve edited photos and it’ll probably be playing in my head while I write this post. It’s so catchy (and mildly annoying).

But, it commemorates arguably the most American lunch there is: peanut butter and jelly! Were you a peanut butter and jelly kid in elementary school, or did you prefer other meals packed in your lunch box? I’ve always loved PB&J, which my peanut butter obsession no doubt contributed to, but there’s so many other totally delicious ways to enjoy the combo than in just a sandwich. [Read more…]

As all the kiddos head back to class, and I’m in my apartment, not starting classes for the first time in 16 years, I had to make a treat to help me reminisce on the most iconic of school lunches of years past: PB&J! This nostalgic-inspired treat is one of my favorite twists on cinnamon rolls. Just let them rise overnight, pop them in the oven first thing in the morning, and you’ll have the scent of warm, gooey cinnamon rolls in place of an alarm clock.

Peanut Butter & Jelly Crumb Bars (GF + Vegan)

These Peanut Butter & Jelly Crumb Bars have a layer of PB&J in the middle, surrounded by a crunchy oatmeal crust. The bars are gluten-free, vegan, and refined sugar-free.Let me start with this: these bars are one of my new favorites things. But…the first time I made these bars, I immediately knew I couldn’t post them. They were so hideous, and what was supposed to be a crumbly topping ended up completely melting into the peanut butter layer. I also burned them a little. They looked vaguely like the surface of the moon.

Once I tried them though, I went on a quest to perfect these bars. Despite being unattractive based solely on appearances, these bars were my dream as a peanut butter lover, even burned and ugly. There was no way I could salvage them enough to photograph them so they’d look good enough to post, so the recipe went back to the drawing board.

The bars are gluten-free, vegan, and refined sugar-free.These bars smelled just like PB&J as they were baking in the oven, and the resulting treats were super peanut buttery with a hint of fruitiness from the jelly. They were irresistible. Literally, because I ate 80% of the first pan with only a little bit of help from my roommate Ally. [Read more…]
