{Clean Eating Blueberry Oat Bread}

You guys know I love a good oat bread. They are just way too easy and my whole family loves them. My husband requested that I make a blueberry version and I have to say...I am glad he did! This turned out so tasty! I feel the urge to make another! My kids actually did the majority of the work. It is THAT easy!!



Clean Eating Blueberry Oat Bread


  • 2 cups old fashioned oats (Processed into oat flour using a food processor)
  • 1/2 cup banana (mashed)
  • 3/4 cup fresh or frozen blueberries
  • 1/2 cup real maple syrup or honey
  • 1 1/2 cups unsweetened applesauce 
  • 1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 2 organic eggs
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract


Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.

Add all ingredients to a medium sized bowl.


Stir well. Check out my little helpers! :)




Pour batter into a metal loaf pan that has been sprayed with olive oil or coconut oil non-stick spray. Sprinkle a few oats on top if you would like.




Bake for 55 minutes or so or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.

Allow to cool and DEVOUR! Store in airtight container.



**This is also really yummy cold right out of the fridge. That is how I eat all of my oat breads!



Hope you all have a fabulous day!!

{Clean Eating Peach Cobbler}

Happy Memorial Day Everyone!!! It is a gorgeous day and I can't wait to get some burgers on the grill!! YUMM!! Still trying to figure out what to take to your BBQ?? Check out this post for some ideas!

I grew up eating cobblers all the time! Fresh fruit with lots of butter and sugar....to die for!! My Grandmother makes THE best blackberry cobbler you will ever taste! I crave cobblers!! Love them all! I have a hard time choosing between peach or blackberry as my favorite kind of cobbler.



 The recipe that I have for peach cobbler calls for margarine, sugar and all purpose flour. Those are three things I am working very hard to eliminate from my diet BUT I still want COBBLER!!!

This {Clean Eating Peach Cobbler} is absolutely delicious and so healthy you could eat it for breakfast. Okay so ice cream for breakfast may be a stretch but I won't tell!! :)  I made these in mason jars just because I like to eat/drink everything out of a jar these days but feel free to use ramekins or a small dish!



Clean Eating Peach Cobbler

{serves 4}

  • 1 cup old fashioned oats (made into oat flour by grinding in food processor or use oat flour)
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/3 cup milk ( I used unsweetened almond milk but any kind will work)
  • 2 cups fresh or frozen peaches (Chop fresh peaches into small slices)
  • organic vanilla ice cream for topping
Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Spray mason jars or 8x8 glass dish with coconut oil or olive oil spray. Mix oat flour, baking powder, egg, honey and milk together in small bowl and set aside. Place 1/2 cup frozen peaches in each mason jar or place all peaches in the bottom of your dish. Divide batter evenly between the four jars or pour on top of peaches in your 8x8 dish.. 

Bake for 35-40 minutes until golden brown. Allow to cool slightly. Top with organic vanilla ice cream!

**My husband loves his peach cobbler cold so it is even really good the next day!

ENJOY!!



Clean Eating Cinnamon Raisin French toast

Ya'll....this is so good. I may eat this every day from here on out until I can't eat it anymore. I am a huge fan of the cinnamon raisin ezekiel bread but this just took it up another notch!! Try it....for breakfast, brunch or dinner (like I did) and I promise you that you will love it too!

It is so simple....barely a recipe but I had to share anyway! :)



Cinnamon Raisin French Toast


Clean Eating Cinnamon Raisin French Toast
{serves 2}

  • 4 slices of Cinnamon Raisin Ezekiel bread
  • 1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • 1 organic egg
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp. coconut oil  {or bacon drippings like I did :)}
Toppings:
  • grass-fed butter
  • real maple syrup
  • fresh berries
  • sliced banana
  • walnuts or pecans (chopped)
  • sprinkled powder stevia
Place milk, egg, vanilla and cinnamon in a bowl and soak each slice of bread in this mixture. Make sure it is coated very well and it is even better to let them sit in this mixture for 15 or 20 minutes. Heat up a non-stick skillet to medium high heat....add coconut oil. Once hot....add each piece of toast and cook a couple minutes per side before flipping. You want it slightly golden brown on each side. 

Add desired toppings! :)

DEVOUR!!!!

Clean Eating PB&J Smoothie


Happy Tuesday!!!

I wanted to share with you guys a super simple but yummy smoothie recipe. I love smoothies because they are easy to drink while I'm taking care of the kiddos, they are packed with protein, they are an easy way to get in some flax and spinach, and they are cold and refreshing after a sweaty workout!

Try this one out and let me know what you think!

Oh..I call this PB&J because in place of grape jelly in my house..we use organic strawberry preserves. It's so good and no one misses grape jelly!
