Peanut Butter Cup Blondies

November 8, 2012 Desserts and Sweets

  If you’re looking for a way to use up the last of that Halloween candy, search no further. This is a perfect recipe to get rid of at least some of those ten thousand peanut butter cups the kids collected while trick-or-treating.  You could probably throw in a few of those fun-sized Snickers and [...]

Whole Wheat, Peanut Butter, Banana, and Chocolate Chip Breakfast Squares

August 30, 2012 Breakfast

I probably shouldn’t call these breakfast squares. It somehow seems wrong to eat chocolate chips for breakfast. But they were vegan chips, so maybe that helps? Probably not. I guess I’ll have to take solace in the fact that the ingredients contain mostly whole wheat, peanut butter and banana. Mmm. Ingredients: Adapted from Peanut Butter, [...]

Peanut Butter, Banana and Honey Road Cake

April 2, 2012 Breakfast

This cake is delicious for breakfast or a snack. It’s also perfect for commuting and road trips. You can eat it with your fingers or a fork. It’s decently healthy, almost vegan (if there is such a thing), and my husband, who is not a fan of whole wheat baked goods, loves it. I know [...]

Baby’s First Cupcakes- Mini Peanut Butter Banana Cupcakes with Peanut Butter Cream Cheese Frosting

July 31, 2011 Desserts and Sweets

I made these yesterday to celebrate our friends’ daughter’s first birthday. Because young children have sensitive digestive systems, I wanted to make a kid-friendly dessert that was tasty and healthy. This recipe has no butter and no refined sugar. I also decided on mini cupcakes that would be easier for small hands to hold. Peanut [...]

Super Simple “Pad Thai”

June 23, 2011 Dinner

I gingerly call this dish “Pad Thai.” I guess it’d be more accurate to say this is what I consider to be the home cook’s quick and dirty version. I realize that it’s probably deeply offensive among serious cooks that I call this dish Pad Thai at all, and so I’m hoping the use of [...]

Double Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies

May 10, 2011 Desserts and Sweets

The other day I came home from work and I wanted a cookie. Badly. And I wanted a really decadent, super unhealthy, super chocolaty one that would make me lapse into a sugar coma for hours so I wouldn’t feel guilty about watching nonstop episodes of Arrested Development (I have a bit of an obsession [...]

Peanut Butter Oat and Fruit Bars

April 25, 2011 Breakfast

This was sort of an accidental recipe. I hadn’t intended to make a snack bar, but after toying with a few peanut butter dessert recipes, I found this to be a more practical, healthier option that can be eaten for breakfast or an afternoon snack. Don’t get me wrong, I love peanut butter desserts, but [...]

Rainy Day Peanut Butter Bites

April 9, 2011 Desserts and Sweets

Lately, my Mom calls nearly everyday to tell me about the weather in Reno (where she lives).  She’s all “Hi, honey you won’t believe the weather here in Reno, it’s 30 degrees and snowing!” She say it just like that, all in one breath. I usually can’t stand talking about the weather. I mean, shouldn’t [...]

Peanut Butter Coconut Crispies

March 25, 2011 Desserts and Sweets

Continuing my love affair with coconut oil, I decided to test it out on something sweet. Rice crispy treats sounded good, but I wasn’t feeling all that sugar (remember people, I have a gown to squeeze myself into in a mere 7 months, tick tock!) and opted to make a high protein, super flavorful version [...]

White Chocolate Kissed Peanut Butter Balls

February 18, 2011 Breakfast

  These are my new favorite snack. They’re a riff off my coveted peanut butter power bombs that I like to munch on before/after hitting the gym and sometimes even for a quick breakfast. The old version is classic, but the white chocolate takes it to a whole new level. I used my favorite white [...]
