It’s pie and cobbler season! Apple, peach, cherry, pumpkin, I love it all. But there is quite a bit of guilt that can go into eating these delicious desserts. So I’m taking (some of) the guilt out and still keeping the yumminess!
Ingredients: 1 Peach, 2 tsp Light Brown Sugar, 1 tsp Cinnamon
*This is a single serving recipe but if you’d like to make more just double,triple,etc the ingredients.
1. Preheat your oven to 350.
2. Cut the peach into slices and toss them in the brown sugar and cinnamon until fully coated.
3. Spread the peach slices on a baking sheet and sprinkle any remaining sugar mixture on top.
4. Bake for 45 minutes.
5. Serve warm and preferably with ice cream. (or if you’re trying to be good, like I am at the moment, frozen yogurt!)
I haven’t tried any other fruit yet but I’m thinking apples would be pretty great for this recipe too, so good!
Mr. G loves sweets but I’m not really big on giving him tons of cookies or ice cream. Don’t get me wrong, they’re great for a treat every once and a while and I have my share too. But for an everyday after dinner kind of thing, I like to stick to something small like fruit snacks or a juice pop. So I’m always looking for healthy treat options. I came across some chocolate covered bananas in the freezer aisle and decided I’d try to make some myself.
What You’ll Need: Bananas, Craft Sticks, Chocolate Magic Shell, Paper Plate, Non Stick Pan Liner
Place some non stick pan liner on your plate (you could also use a baking pan) and the bananas, peeled, on the liner. Cut each one in half and place a craft stick in each end. I’m used jumbo craft sticks, since that’s what I had for my yogurt pops, but I really think that the regular size would work best for the bananas. However, if you are using larger ones like me, just be careful putting them in the bananas since they will start to break the banana if you’re not.
Line up the bananas and stick them in the freezer until frozen. This will take at least a couple hours.
Once they’re done, pour magic shell over them until covered. This is the best part because it hardens instantly and they’re ready to eat! Not ready to eat them right away? Stick them back in the freezer.
Definitely toddler approved but Mr. G mainly just eats the chocolate. I may be back to the drawing board on a healthy treat for him but I’ll be making these for myself anyway, delicious! Oh! And there’s always extra chocolate when you’re done!
Nothing says easy eats to me like a sandwich. Slap it together and eat, right? Here’s a super quick and delicious tuna salad recipe you can make in minutes.
I have an enormous sweet tooth. I embrace it but I also know that I can’t just eat all the chocolate and ice cream and goodness lying around. So I try to find ways to combat my need for sweets and my love of staying fit. Here’s one of my absolute favorite desserts that even my toddler approves!
Ingredients: 1.5 cups Almond Milk, 2 Tbsp Chocolate Drink Mix, 2 Tbsp Powdered Peanut Butter, 1 Banana, 1/2-1 cup Ice
Now just blend all the ingredients in a blender and drink!
This is what the powdered PB looks like. It’s my new favorite thing for smoothies. It has less fat, just about all the taste of regular PB and you can find it at Walmart. If you want to use regular PB though, that would taste fabulous too!
I love to cook. But what I love most is cooking EASY stuff. The easier (faster) the better for me. So here is one of my healthy go to recipes!
