If you’re like me then you revel in the fact that Oreo flavors are pretty much endless. I have a few favorites (like Rocky Road Trip or Oreo Thin Bites Fudge Dipped), but I also get excited whenever a new flavor comes out (Carrot Cake anyone?).
One of my classic favorites though has to be the Birthday Cake Oreos. The two chocolate cookies sandwich birthday cake flavored creme filling and sprinkles!
And they are perfect for these Oreo Birthday Cake Cupcakes!
These Soft and Chewy Gingerbread Cookies are the perfect Holiday treat. Seriously ..the softest and the most delicious! Sugar & spice and everything nice!
This is actually my first time attempting Gingerbread it’s never been one of our Holiday Cookie staples. To be honest I think I’ve maybe had it once in my life. But, they are now a new family favorite! These literally came out with the perfect texture and the perfect combination of ginger, cinnamon, and sweet brown sugar!
Pumpkin Pie is by far one of the most popular Holiday Desserts. Pumpkin Pie is sweet, creamy, and filled with Cinnamon-y spice! The only thing that can make it even more perfect for a party or family gathering? Make it bite size! People tend to feel more inclined to grab dessert when it’s easy and ready to go, like these Mini Pumpkin Pies. No waiting to slice, and no excess portions! I’m sharing this recipe for the most perfect Mini Pumpkin Pies with you, just in time for Thanksgiving! Continue Reading…
I have a confession…I love pumpkin, but I am far from obsessed. So, when the “all pumpkin spice, all the time” season rolls around, I cringe a little. Only because I prefer my pumpkin a little more subtle. Maybe even balanced out with a little chocolate! These Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins are sweet with a little cinnamon and spice!
I’m using both milk chocolate chips and white chocolate chips along with my pumpkin puree!
I’m also using Sugar 2.0 in these. It’s made from 50% real cane sugar and 50% Probiotic Fiber. Which is awesome because that means we can easily cut our sugar intake in half! Perfect for us, since my son loves to eat muffins before school in the morning!
In addition to some bigger muffins, I’m making some minis as well. This recipe works well for either 12 regular muffins or 24 minis!
Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins
Preheat oven to 375. Line a muffin pan with cupcake liners.
In a large bowl mix your dry ingredients (Sugar 2.0, flour, baking soda, salt, baking powder, cinnamon, ginger, & nutmeg).
Next, mix in your eggs, vegetable oil, vanilla extract, and pumpkin puree. Finally, add the majority of your chocolate chips. Saving some to place on top of your muffins.
Using an ice cream scoop divide your muffin mixture in to your liners. Make sure to evenly distribute. Add the rest of the chocolate chips to the tops.Bake regular muffins for about 22 minutes, check with a toothpick to see if they are thoroughly cooked in the center. Mini muffins can be cooked for about 12-15 minutes before checking. Cool before serving!
I’m extremely fond of ice cream. I mean it really doesn’t phase me whether it’s Summer, Fall, Spring, or Winter. I will happily sit in my living room with a bowl of ice cream as I watch the snowflakes fall to the ground. Rocky Road, Cotton Candy, Strawberry, Chocolate, Peanut butter, Pistachio.. you name it, i love it….give me all the flavors! Ice cream is always in season. So, today I’m sharing my Non-Dairy Coconut Cherry Ice Cream. It’s so easy! It only has two ingredients! Continue Reading…
If you’ve ever had fried apples, then you know how sinfully delicious they taste. If you haven’t, fall is the perfect time to cook these beauties up! They are basically apple wedges pan fried with cinnamon & sugar. The best part is, they’re surprisingly easy to make. These Fireball Glazed Fried Apples are the perfect dessert! It’s a classic down home treat and the Fireball Whisky adds an understated elegance.
I received Sugar 2.0 complimentary for review purposes. As always all opinions and thoughts are my own!
Today I’m whipping up some sweet after school snacks! These Triple Berry Oatmeal Bars are as delicious as they are healthy! Comprised of Rolled Oats, Cocoa Rice Cereal, and lots of Berries!
You can customize this easy recipe by adding in whatever fruits you prefer. I’m using dried strawberries, goji berries, and blueberries. I’m also using Sugar 2.0. It’s half sugar & half fiber which makes it a healthier option. I love the way it taste, because it’s always made with 100% real cane sugar. I also love that when substituting it in recipes, it’s a one for one ratio, so no unnecessary math calculations are needed! Sugar 2.0 recently released Honey 2.0 as well! Equally delicious, I’m using it as my sticky component for these bars!
Keep in mind these are no bake bars, so they come together quickly!
I remember eating Cream Cheese Danishes all the time when I was little. I love how creamy they are, perfectly balanced with a little sweetness, all atop a pillowy croissant. This weekend we made these delightful Pineapple Cream Cheese versions. The pineapple keeps these light and summery.
