Sweet Potato Snickerdoodles

I’ll be the first to admit, I did not grow up much of a snickerdoodle fan. Chocolate chip cookies will always be my #1, but with snickerdoodle being Tim’s favorite, I’ve found myself making them and actually enjoying them, too!

Fluffy Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

I hope you aren’t getting sick of fall flavors, because this won’t be the last post showcasing pumpkin, apple or pear (am I missing anything?) this season!

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.

Spicy Sweet Potato Hummus

I am a huge hummus lover –  as a dip, on wraps & sandwiches, to make potato salads, for a creamy dairy-free risotto, or even for some raw zucchini rollatini. Let’s be honest though… the same old hummus gets pretty boring and it can get pricey when you have a whole family or party full of people who want to snack on it.

Pumpkin Cranberry Energy Bites

I know some of you are still wishing it was summer {okay, I sort of am, too}, but the weather this past week has cooled down and gotten gloomy, so fall food is on the menu! There’s so much running around after Labor Day as we acclimate back to our regular schedules that it’s easy to ignore our body’s signals letting us know it needs some fuel for all the things you make it do everyday!

Satisfying Crunchy Snacks

To keep with my new theme of quick, easy, nourishing meals, I couldn’t skip this month’s Recipe Redux theme to share a crunchy snack! While the crunchy toast below is hardly a recipe, I thought sharing my favorite crunchy portable convenience foods is a helpful way to kick off back to school (and for some back to work).

Banana Peanut Butter Snack Bites

While April 23 is National Picnic Day, you don’t need a reason to whip up these snack bites any time you have a ripe banana on hand. Unlike my other energy bite recipes, you don’t need a food processor, just a good old mixing bowl and rubber spatula or wooden spoon. They’re perfect for kids and adults, before a workout or as an afternoon work snack, and as a side with or to finish off a picnic meal!
