These Apple Oatmeal Muffins are naturally vegan and absolutely full of apple flavor from sautéed apples, apple cider, and applesauce! These healthier muffins are sure to be a breakfast favorite.Okay, let’s be honest: these muffins sound *yawn* boring. But! Their perfection is in their simplicity, and I mean it when I say these muffins are super addicting, flavorful, and delicious.

I first made these as an excuse to bake for a school project for my social entrepreneurship class. My group and I had to participate in a business plan competition as part of the class, so of course when I heard that people got to vote for the people’s choice award, I knew I had to bake something to help sway people’s votes my way.

These Salted Peanut Oatmeal Butterscotch Cookies are studded with roasted peanuts, butterscotch chips, and sprinkled with flaky sea salt! These cookies are a must have!! #Recipe from Bakerita.comThis cookie has brought together a whole bunch of my favorite flavors and textures. It’s seriously so good. Let’s go over why: 1) Salted, because I’m a firm believer that a sprinkle of high quality flaky sea salt makes any dessert exponentially better, 2) Peanuts…because I love some good crunch in my cookie, and 3) Butterscotch, oh my sweet yumminess, because they’re delicious and add the perfect touch of sweetness.

These things add up to one deeeelicious cookie (or, actually, a few dozen). The inspiration for the recipe came from my kitchen organization, actually. I keep my flours, sugars, oats, and some baking chips in little clear containers stacked on one of our countertops, and I was doing some rearranging…I put my butterscotch chips on top of peanuts, and thought “hmm…those would taste delicious together.” Next to them was the oatmeal container, and voila: Salted Peanut Butterscotch Oatmeal Cookies were born.

This Apple Berry Crisp is the perfect fall treat. Baked up in a skillet, the tender apples and sweet berries pair perfectly with the buttery oatmeal pecan crisp topping. | via Bakerita.comI get asked a lot what my favorite dessert is, and while I always hesitate and think about it for a while, the answer always ends up the same: anything with apples in it. I’m a huge sucker for apple desserts, and of all the apple desserts, ones that are piled high with crisp or crumble topping top the list. Add in pecans or oats, and I’m in heaven. Oooh, and with caramel sauce – like my caramel apple crisp? Always a winner.

So…while I definitely can’t make apple crisp frequently for fear of devouring it ALL to myself, it’s the one thing I MUST make every fall. A while back, my housemate Olivia was talking about a crisp her mom made, Bumbleberry Crisp, which was apples mixed all up with a bunch of berries. It sounded amazing, and served as the inspiration for this recipe. [Read more…]

Baking is my personal form of self-therapy, and spending the whole day baking yesterday just makes me want to do it all over again today! Minus clean-up – that’s no fun. [Read more…]

White Chocolate Cinnamon Oatmeal Cookies

White Chocolate Cinnamon Oatmeal Cookies | Bakerita.comI thought that this cookie would turn out pretty standard and simple tasting. You know, oatmeal cookie with some cinnamon and a bit of white chocolate – nothing revolutionary here. BUT. Somehow, the way the dark brown sugar caramelized, combined with a healthy dose of cinnamon and that sweet white chocolate created something AWESOME.

These cookies taste like a chewy, oatmeal-y cinnamon roll. Not exactly like a cinnamon roll (duh, cookie texture, not bread), but the taste is definitely there. [Read more…]

Peanut butter. Peanut butter. Peanut butter.

It’s all you hear about on this blog. Sorry (but not really…).

Well, you’re hearing about it again! A couple weeks ago the National Peanut Board asked me to do a guest post for them featuring peanuts or peanut butter. Clearly, I jumped on the opportunity and managed to create one of the best cookies I’ve ever made: Peanut Butter Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookie Sandwiches. [Read more…]

Sunbutter Oatmeal Cookies

Sunbutter Oatmeal Cookies | Bakerita.comIt’s been well-established on this blog that I am extremely fond of peanut butter.

I like to make it myself. I also like to stir it into oatmeal for breakfast with some chocolate and call it healthy.

It also ends up in a lot of awesome bar recipes.

Sunbutter Oatmeal Cookies | Bakerita.comHowever, I never put much thought into all those poor, innocent souls who are allergic to peanut butter. I can’t imagine such a tragedy, but did you know that approximately three million people in the U.S. are allergic to peanuts? (Yes, I did just look that up on Wikipedia.)

Now, those people, well, I couldn’t do it. Peanut butter is easily one of my most used kitchen ingredients, next to chocolate. Usually together. [Read more…]

There’s something inherently comforting about food blogging, and the food blogging community. It’s a group of people – all completely dissimilar, coming from every country, background, religion, race, financial background – who all share one simple thing: the love of food.

While most Americans share that same love of food, food bloggers are the people who love to share that love. They are the people who want to share the flavors of their families, and their backgrounds, and the recipes they create in their kitchens, with the world. We, food bloggers, are some of the few people who will make our families suffer for a half hour as the tantalizing dish we made is ready to eat – but we need to photograph it to get the perfect picture to share with our readers. It’s a labor, but it’s also a labor of love, and with food blogging, if you don’t love what you do – it shows. [Read more…]
