cinnamon peach baked oatmeal

Screen Shot 2014-08-16 at 10.47.22 AM

I usually eat really simple and fast breakfasts that require minimal prep–eggs, smoothies, or overnight oats. But sometimes (rarely) I am extra motivated to food prep for the entire week, and baked oatmeal makes for an awesome breakfast.

This is adapted from Fitnessista’s recipe–love her blog! It is naturally sweetened from the banana and spices, so feel free to add additional sweetener if that is how you usually like your oats!

chocolate glazed zucchini bars

Screen Shot 2014-08-12 at 8.39.03 PM

I stuffed two whole cups of grated zucchini into these delicious bars, and they baked into the most glorious chocolate things.

There’s no other way to describe them but MOIST. (ha sorry)

I was originally drawn to these bars because the recipe called them chocolate zucchini brownies. They were as yummy as described, but brownies they are not.

I don’t know about you, but I like my brownies fudgey, and these definitely fall into the cakey category.

double chocolate zucchini muffins

Screen Shot 2014-08-12 at 8.34.05 PM

These zucchini muffins = so good! How could anything double chocolate not be?

Although these photos do somehow make the muffins look a little pale…in real life they look undeniably chocolatey.

strawberry honey yogurt popsicles

Our summer semester of classes ended last week (just in time for my birthday! so I can’t complain too much about that), and the fall semester already begins on MONDAY.

Screen Shot 2014-08-03 at 7.24.31 AM

So my one week of summer is in full swing…and it includes these cute pink popsicles.

Screen Shot 2014-08-03 at 7.22.33 AM

They are easy, healthy, and a pretty little cold treat! And the nerd that I am had a blast layering them in different ways.

Hurry and make these before summer is over!

frosty banana fudge bars (raw, vegan)

Screen Shot 2014-06-22 at 5.32.25 PM

I’m posting these today because they are quite possibly my favorite thing ever, and that’s the kind of thing you post on your BIRTHDAY (!!!)

Screen Shot 2014-07-09 at 11.14.02 AM

They are like larabars on crack. Fudged up and raw and vegan and indulgently guilt-free.

Screen Shot 2014-06-22 at 5.31.13 PM

I love these. So so so much.

swirled chewy chocolate peanut butter cup cookies (gluten-free, dairy-free)


I made these delicious (and SO easy) little cookies the morning before I left for a little trip to Syracuse, and they were ready in a jiffy.

Half of the cookie is a five-ingredient peanut butter cookie recipe that was based off of this recipe, and the other half is a dark chocolate version of that using almond butter (a spin off of the spin off!!!). Both are incredibly easy.
