Strawberry Banana Oat Muffins

Strawberry Banana Oat Muffins-3Muffins! I think the strawberries are seasonally on their way out but I can’t just let go. I made these Strawberry Banana Oat Muffins for a change of pace.

Strawberry Banana Oat Muffins-2This is a very basic recipe so it didn’t really need much else. Next time I make it I think I might want to add some vanilla, or strangely more banana. They were tasty though, and pretty healthy.

Whole Wheat Waffles

Whole Wheat Waffles-2Saturday and waffles! Since I have to get up for tennis each Saturday I try to eat well after. You know, refuel with carbs. Today was rough and I could barely get this post off the presses without just inhaling my waffles and calling it a day.

I found this whole wheat waffle recipe and decided to give it a go. I’m all about sugary and froo froo waffles but these basic waffles were okay. They were actually pretty crispy which is what I like. I ate them plain with maple syrup but this is probably a recipe that could stand up to a lot of different flavour ideas.

Healthy Peanut Butter Cookies

Healthy Peanut Butter Cookies-2Well, since I made the Peanut Butter Shortbread Cookies off the Bittersweet Blog, you didn’t think I would just up and leave without making both recipes posted on the same blog post did you? Not with the peanut butter addiction we have in this house, that’s for sure.

Healthy Peanut Butter CookiesThese turned out great, not like I was surprised. The husband loved them, however just the agave left these a bit less sweet than my usual peanut butter cookies where I like to add brown sugar. Which makes sense because let’s be honest, I don’t NEED all that sugar, I made these because they were healthier. Which means I could eat more. Which is totally cool in my book!

Potato & Grilled Corn Salad with Fresh Dill

Potato & Grilled Corn Salad with Fresh Dill-3This is technically a salad but I just like to call it a side. Why have boring potatoes when you can have awesome dill and grilled corn side. If I need a tried and true recipe I always turn to the Fat Free Vegan site.

Potato & Grilled Corn Salad with Fresh Dill-2This was easy enough, I had some leftover corn from grilling and I took it off the cob before storing so it whipped together easily. It’s quite tangy which I like and I’m really glad I used the dill. I missed out on the green onions but I generally don’t keep them in the fridge and I forgot when I was shopping for the dill. It was all good though, the husband gave it thumbs up and we kind of ate too much because it was a bit addicting. Oops!

What I Ate Wednesday 7/9/2014

 

wpid-20140707_095948.jpgWednesday really snuck up on me. Here’s what happened in eats on Monday. First day back in the office, it was kind of dead. Good thing because I had reports to get to. There were still bagels though!

wpid-20140707_124152.jpgI totally didn’t want to pack a lunch so I got a salad from downstairs. There are veggies under that pile of tortilla strips. I swear. I’d say the guy looked at me and saw that I neeeeeeded more tortilla strips but I ordered it online and I just picked it up at the cubby hole. I’m probably just in tune with my salad making bro.

wpid-20140707_170822.jpgI got home before the husband and had a few handfuls of cherries.  It looks so much more polite when I show them to you in my hand. Dinner was leftover bbq tofu (bbq curry chicken for the husband) and potato salad which I’ll write a post about. I had mine cold and he heated his up, both were tasty. I didn’t need anything for dessert since I ate cherries beforehand.

Dark Chocolate, Cherry & Walnut Breakfast Bars

Dark Chocolate Cherry & Walnut Breakfast Bars-3I admit, I wasn’t sure about the recipe for these bars. It’s not like I don’t make breakfast bars with barely any sugar but when it’s another recipe I have to pause. Besides the mixins there is only a little bit of maple syrup.

Dark Chocolate Cherry & Walnut Breakfast Bars-2But it turned out fantastic, no worries. I kind of cheated and used almond and oat flour, because I had it and I’m lazy. I didn’t really know the measurements of the final oats/almond mixture so I just kind of added until I got a good batter to put into my pan. The husband enjoyed them and now I have breakfast for a few days.

Harney & Sons Peach Iced Tea

Harney Peach Iced TeaIt’s been warm and I’ve had lots of time at home because of the holiday (and I took some time off). My husband drinks a lot of iced tea but I’ve moved more to water at home. However, this past week I’m back on an iced tea kick so I pulled some Peach Iced Tea out of the cupboard. It’s not super strong in the peach flavour as it would be if hot but I really prefer that in an iced tea that I’m just looking for refreshing taste. The Harney iced teas are a staple in our house but I’m running out, need to do a big old buy! Excuse the mismatch of tins, I just buy in bulk and use old tins.

No-bake Penuche Drop Cookie Recipe #SundaySupper

No-bake Penuche Drop CookiesAs you know I’ve complained about not having air conditioning a lot. I signed up right away when I heard this #SundaySupper theme was Summer Chillin’. It was quite warm in my house yesterday so I was pretty excited to not have to turn on my oven to do a post! I honestly can’t wait to go through the other recipes, I’m dreading turning on my oven this weekend and I might be bbq’d out!

No-bake Penuche Drop Cookies-3Never heard of penuche? It’s a very basic fudge. Just milk, sugar and butter. All things I veganize every day! So this recipe takes the penuche flavour and binds it to oats and nuts. I used walnuts. You can blitz some of the oat in the food processor if you are worried about the cookies sticking together, but either way is fine just as long as you cook the mixture enough.

Happy 4th Of July

1_berry-kabobsHappy 4th Everyone. I wasn’t even going to post today but I figured I’d pop in to say hello. I haven’t been baking lately so I don’t even have much to talk about. We’re planning a ride, maybe down to Gilroy today to get in some miles and enjoy the nice weather. Okay, it’s kind of always nice around here (even if it’s too dry).  We’ll see how long my hands can survive with the vibrations from my bike, they fall asleep. Boo.

I’ve never seen these kebobs before, seem like something super cute to make for a party. I kind of want one now!

Peanut Butter Shortbread Cookies

Peanut Butter Shortbread CookiesI’m off work today and we’re running errands for Bens motorcycle, a new Nitron shock and probably going on another motorcycle ride so he can test it out. Yesterday was so nice. A ride down the coast, some food and just a mellow day. I kind of wish we could have travelled but I will survive. I’ve also installed Civ5 via steam so I’m pretty much having a hard time getting off the couch. Oops. At least we had cookies.

Peanut Butter Shortbread Cookies-3I can’t believe how good these Peanut Butter Shortbread Cookies were. Seriously. The cornstarch gives them such a great shortbread texture, I totally never thought of that. These rolled out so easily and I didn’t have a crumbly bit at all. Quick tip for rolling out dough: roll it between 2 pieces of cling wrap. No dirty counter and not extra flour needed. I hate cleaning rolling pins anyway, this way no dough ever gets sacrificed to the rolling pin gods.
