With or Without You: Guilt-Free Baking

20140930-101455.jpg

Simple ingredients often fuse together and create a rare foodie surprise. The basics bring out unmatched flavor and passion. What better place to sharpen your minimalist skills than in the kitchen!

Going flour-less ( when possible) is one way to do it– my flour-less banana chocolate chip muffins sans the carbs is heaven for the hips and heart. Nothing beats when gluttony meets healthy. These petite muffins are full of fiber, potassium, healthier glucose, and powerful antioxidants. So, have another.. and another ! Then, go outside and jump in a pile of leaves:)

This oat-hearty treat can fix a sweet tooth, but also pair as a brunch favorite. Anyone who knows me, knows I love BRUNCH. I am always looking for ways that me and mini me can satisfy late morning cravings. We found it. After much tweaking, we perfected this little morsel, and it is now a fall staple!

Using steel oats might seem grainy, but the texture is unmatched. If you want something less filling, you can blend simple oats until they are smooth.

We use 2 eggs, 1/2 cup of organic honey ,1 tsp vanilla, 1 and 1/2 cup steel oats, blended, 1 teaspoon baking soda, 1 teaspoon baking powder, 2 mashed ripe bananas, and some dark chocolate chips.

If you do not want to use just honey, you can substitute raw brown sugar and half the honey. We mixed the dry ingredients in one bowl, wet in another,and slowly integrated them both.20140928-213924.jpg

Filling our muffin tins about halfway, we baked them at 350 for about 15 minutes. Keep an eye out for over browning. And make sure to let these babies cool before you attempt to remove them!

Perfect as a to-go snack before you head out to find fall’s peak foliage!
