Banana Blueberry Oatmeal Bake

Banana Blueberry Oatmeal Bake

Breakfast: the best meal of the entire day that gives you energy to face life. What’s the easiest and best kind of breakfast to fuel you up for the day? Oatmeeeeal! Yep, and not just any ordinary oatmeal, extraordinary oatmeal- Banana Blueberry Oatmeal Bake. Oatmeal Bakes are super easy to whip up and can provide a filling breakfast for the whole fam. This recipe tastes extra divine because I used one Modern Oats Nuts and Seeds Oatmeal Cup (2.3 oz ) and one Goji Blueberry Oatmeal Cup (2.6 oz). These oatmeal cups are already decadent and fabulous all by themselves but I jazzed up my oatmeal bake with some bananas, bluebs, and freshly made peanut butter. Is there really a better breakfast combo than oats, fruits, and peanut butter? I think not! Of course I drizzled the top with some more peanut butter because I’m kind of obsessed with it. You’re going to absolutely love this easy peasy fruity, carbolicious, creamy, healthy, and satisfying breakfast. Enjoy my friends!

Chocolate Chip & Peanut Butter Cookie Dough Bites

Chocolate Chip & Peanut Butter Cookie Dough Bites

We’re getting closer to the weekend AND it’s summer, woo! I thought I’d make you the perfectly easy and scrumptious midweek snack-Chocolate Chip & Peanut Butter Cookie Dough Bites. Are you drooling yet? Little bites like these are my favorite kind of snacks because I can take them anywhere with me. My second favorite snack bite recipe of all time: Dark Chocolate Sweet Potato Brownie Bites (Chocolate Chip & PB Cookie Dough Bites come in first). No time to sit down for a midday snack? You can just pull one of these gems out of your bag and nosh away! Let’s get to the cookie dough part. Uh, yum. I love that these snack bites are light and doughy. There are a few ingredients that take my Chocolate Chip & Peanut Butter Cookie Dough Bites to another level of deliciousness. I’m talking coconut chips, chia seeds and hemp seeds. What an excellent little addition! Hemp seeds contain essential amino acids, chia seeds add fiber to your diet and unsweetened coconut chips, well they add wonderful yet subtle hints of coconut flavor. You’ll love these doughy, peanut buttery, chocolatey bites of bliss.

Vegan Cherry Lime Cheesecake

Vegan Cherry Lime Cheesecake

It’s hashtag meatlessmonday and I am so so so excited to present to you my Vegan Cherry Lime Cheesecake! It’s the kind of cheesecake that you dream about eating at restaurants after a big and beautiful dinner. Except guess what? It’s vegan, but ya wouldn’t even know or care. The main ingredient in these creamy and dreamy cheesecakes is cashews. I had a super hectic weekend between traveling and school, so I only got to soak the cashews for an hour but I totes recommend soaking them in water for at least two. Vegan Cherry Lime Cheesecake is truly a perfect summertime dessert since it’s raw and fruity. May I recommend making my utterly fabulous and light Vegan Caesar Salad for dinner, then finishing the night with the ultimate dessert (hint: Cherry Lime Cheesecake). Perhaps the crust is best part about cheesecake and let me tell ya, this crust does not disappoint! It’s super simple and made of only two ingredients-macadamia nuts and dates. Oh my cherry lime you must try this delectable dessert and let me know just how big of a crowd pleaser it is. After all, life is better with a piece of cheesecake. Enjoy my friends!

Stick these guys in the freezer for at least a couple of hours before serving them. Then, I like to let them sit out for a little bit after they come out of the freezer so they’re not super hard and easier to eat. IMG_8018IMG_8030IMG_8021
