Simple and Delicious Blueberry Banana Parfait

bella-mckenzie-blueberry-banana-parfait


One thing that I have really enjoyed this past summer is making breakfast parfaits.

I do not know what it is, but they are just light on the system and they kinda trip the body into thinking that it’s getting a sugary treat so you don’t crave sugar all day (YAY!)

This parfait is sweet, HEALTHY, and satisfying!

Recipe: Gluten-free Brookies from McCormick

brookies

 

Do you know what a brookie is? I didn’t before I received a recipe from McCormick. A brookie is a combination of brownie batter and cookie dough, which creates a half chocolate chip and half brownie cookie, or the best of both worlds. I don’t usually post recipes, but when I find one that ‘speaks’ to me like this one, then I feel compelled to share it.

After getting permission from the lovely folks at McCormick, I give you the recipe (makes five dozen) for the brookie: Read More »

Corn-syrup and Cane-sugar-Free Caramel Popcorn Recipe

gluten free sugar free corn syrup free caramel corn

What’s the problem with how traditional caramel corn is made? The primary ingredients are usually corn syrup and refined white sugar (not at all beneficial to our health or mood).  Also, you often have to fight to keep the caramel corn on the baking sheets as you stir it during baking.  All these problems have been solved with this new recipe.  Natural sweeteners replace the corn syrup and white sugar and the mixture is baked in a casserole dish.  Easy and yummy! I’m also always amazed by how large a batch is made with such a small amount of ingredients.

Pop ½ cup of popcorn (produces 2-3 quarts of popcorn)

3 Tbsp. coconut oil/butter
1/3 cup honey and/or maple syrup Read More »

Testimonials:

“These are so delicious! When I had to stop eating gluten (health reasons), I knew the number one thing I’d miss more than anything would be my obsession – doughnuts. I’d tried several gluten free doughnuts in stores and was always left VERY disappointed. These Katz Gluten Free Jelly Donuts brought back a lifetime love to me! The smell, the texture, the delicious taste – they’re the doughnuts I’d been missing. There’s a perfect amount of raspberry filling inside – just enough to taste without overwhelming the flavor of the donuts, themselves. Seriously, these are uncommonly delicious and I plan to order more than just two boxes next time!”
