Carrot Cake Breakfast bars. I know! My kids were pretty excited about having carrot cake for breakfast. A simple little breakfast bar that will make a few mornings easier. Not too sweet but sweet enough for first thing in the morning. Make ahead and grab and go.
Loaded with coconut and insanely cute muffins.
These Double Chocolate Whole Wheat Banana Muffins are vegan and fill the chocolatey requirement. And will totally settle that mid-afternoon chocolate craving. In a slightly virtuous way – there is whole wheat flour in there!
Here is a healthy little muffin to go with your weekend coffee. Vegan, nearly fat-free and packed with protein from chia seeds and quinoa. Next time you are cooking quinoa for dinner make some extra.
I really hate to add to your To-Do list for the weekend, but a batch of these muffins would be a good idea. They stash nicely in the freezer and given that they are fairly low in sugar they make a healthy addition for the kids lunch box. Or better yet, with a piece of fruit and slathered with nut butter they are a quick and compact little breakfast.
The trick to tender and flaky scones, even when they are vegan, is to not over mix the dough. Mix the dry ingredients together then add the honey (or your favourite liquid sweetener) and coconut oil. Mix well with your fingers to get a fine crumb. Yes, this is like making pastry.
This Blueberry Citrus loaf is a new addition to the must.make.all.the.time list. And while, yes there is a bit of sugar, I’ve seen worse. The bread gets a good amount of sweetness (and flavour) from the orange juice, blueberries and dried cranberries. It is low in fat, no saturated fat, completely vegan and uses whole wheat flour. I say this is a win-win.
When someone says bake something I just naturally go for muffins. And given that it’s that time of year where I find myself overstocked with pumpkin puree, these are pumpkin muffins. Vegan. Whole-grain. And I added a little extra brown sugar streusel on top for fun.
