Nutty Banana Breakfast Bars

I felt like creating something original today. I think it could still be better, but it definitely hit the spot. Right now I am not sure I can have honey, so I've been playing around with baking using fruit as the only sweetener. Hopefully, if my love affair with honey must come to an end, … Continue reading Nutty Banana Breakfast Bars

Banana Coconut Pecan Cookies (3 Ingredients)

I made these cookies because I am still on the LEAP program and I am limited as to what ingredients I can use to create things. I haven't had a baked good in a while and I made chocolate chip cookies for some guests later. I want to enjoy a snack as well, so I … Continue reading Banana Coconut Pecan Cookies (3 Ingredients)

LEAP Diet Phase 2

After struggling through phase 1 with only 2 proteins and 2 veggies (I ate a lot of bananas and pecans), I must say that it was well worth it.

Banana Pecan Coffee Smoothie (LEAP)

I found what I will be having for breakfast for at least the next 10 days! Perhaps once I can add more items in, I will trade out the mango for some coconut and keep this sucker in rotation for a while. Enjoy!

Banana Avocado Nut Bread (LEAP)

I am horribly bored on this combo SCD/LEAP diet. I need more protein options and veggies.

Below is … Continue reading Banana Avocado Nut Bread (LEAP)

SCD Focaccia Bread (Tweak)

SCD Pumpernutkel Bread (Tweak)

I love this bread, so of course I had to tweak it to replace the almond flour due to food sensitivities. I'm calling this version my pumperutkel loaf. The flavor is even different, but lovely. Try not to eat it all at once.B Click here for the original recipe. Tip: For freezing, slice the bread … Continue reading SCD Pumpernutkel Bread (Tweak)

Coconut Banana Bread (Tweak)

  After finding out that I reacted high to almonds and must avoid them (not really upset about this other than losing their versatility), I had to find something delicious to make with coconut flour. I also had 2lbs of bananas to sneak into some recipes. MyB tweak on this recipe was to cut the … Continue reading Coconut Banana Bread (Tweak)
