Small Batch Honey Apple Crisp

This post is a quick one. I teased this apple crisp on Instagram and had so many messages asking for the recipe that I decided to get it up right away! It’s meant to be smaller than most recipes since we live in a house with only two adults, so if you need, feel free to double and cook in a larger baking dish than recommended.

Cinnamon Spiced Almond Banana Pancakes

I first published my almond flour banana pancakes back in June 2014. We made them often back then, before I created my buckwheat oat pancakes and started making them almost every Sunday.


This past weekend I was reminded of this recipe though, and how when we were training for the Nantucket triathlon, it was the only full breakfast Tim was able to eat and still feel amazing training a couple of hours later.
