What was your favorite cereal growing up? For us, one of our favorites was Cinnamon Toast Crunch. Even drinking the sweet, cinnamon-y milk at the end was good! Yeah, yeah this sounds incredibly off-brand for us. All the cereals we ate growing up (and that are still on the market) are filled with terrible ingredients and LOADS of sugar, especially considering this was breakfast sometimes. But come on, let’s just admit that sh*t was GOOD. 

We got to talking about our childhood and how much we loved and missed cereal, which got us craving Cinnamon Toast Crunch.  When I looked over and saw two overly ripe bananas...

We are BIG carrot cake fans (especially Jill, it’s her favorite). We have been waiting to make a carrot cake for the blog, and Easter seemed like the perfect occasion. We wanted this carrot cake to be legit— dense yet fluffy, right amount of sweetness, with creamy, thick frosting. But we also wanted it to be “on brand”— a carrot cake that tastes amazing but leaves out gluten, dairy, and huge amounts of sugar. 

We searched for inspo across the Google machine, Pinterest, and some of our favorite bloggers (Minimalist Baker and Ambitious Kitchen, namely). We found good stuff, but some were too complicated, u...

We always love finding new ways to incorporate plant-based protein into our meals. What we find works best when it comes to doing this, is when it’s something that can be batch-cooked so that you can grab and add to your meals throughout the week. In this case, it’s falafel! 

This falafel is gluten free and packed with protein and flavor. They’re quick and easy to make and are a great with several different meals. For example, you could whip up a Mediterranean-inspired bowl for dinner or add it to your salad for lunch! Pair it with our creamy tahini dressing to make your meal have even more protein, some heal...

We’ve been trying to master a gluten free bread that’s also vegan and low sugar. After experimenting with various combinations of flax “eggs”, apple sauce, almond butter, and anything and everything else we thought might make the bread hold up, it kept coming out mushy! Until this beauty. 

Oat flour might be the key to creating a bread that holds up nicely, especially if you’re making it vegan (without eggs). Coconut flour and almond flour tend to absorb and hold a lot of moisture, so by using some oat and some almond flour and no flax egg, we created a recipe that tastes amazing and is dense and fluffy. Enou...

It's been almost exactly a year since I made my very first trip to Europe. A life-changing trip to Spain and Italy (Barcelona, Florence, Rome, and Cinque Terre, to be exact) that I will always remember. Something in particular I've thought about since I left those beautiful, historical cities were... these matcha banana pancakes.

I know, right. How on-brand (or maybe basic) that in a place filled with breath-taking scenery, incredible architecture, and traditional Spanish and Italian cuisine, I remember matcha pancakes. Ok, ok TRUST ME. I fondly remember walking in the cobblestone streets, stumbling upon little ch...
