As life is getting more and more back to normal and being a lot more busy, it seems like I am always looking for a snack that will get me going and not packed with sugar and salt. In these chocolate peanut protein bars, they are packed with protein to give you a boost of energy and a bit of sugar to fix the cravings. Plus these protein bars are super soft and chewy and require not much more than a couple bowls and a spoon to mix everything together. Once you make your own, you will never go back to the store bought ones.
One of the things I love is cornbread muffins right out of the oven. They are packed with a rich and buttery flavor, however what is even better is these honey blueberry muffins. The muffins have a slight crunch and savory flavor of the cornmeal make a perfect backdrop for blueberries, which burst as they bake, creating pockets of juice that keep the muffins tender. They are extremely simple to prepare, about 15 minutes to mix everything up and under 30 minutes to bake.
As spring is here, one of the first things that come up in the garden is rhubarb. I feel like rhubarb gets a bad reputation, but I think its a great ingredient that adds get flavor and texture to sweets and desserts. In these raspberry and rhubarb muffins, each bite is packed with flavor from both the raspberries and the rhubarb. The muffins come out with a great red speckle throughout the muffins making them look delicious. Making it a great morning breakfast or snack throughout the day.
As this spring has been cool and rainy so far this year here in MN, there is nothing like a smell of cooked cinnamon to warm you up. This cinnamon raisin bread takes a bit of time to make and not the most attractive exterior, however the inside is flavorful and looks amazing and is perfect for breakfast all week (if it last that long). The bread comes out soft and packed with raisins and cinnamon sugar all throughout the loaf. The bread is amazing toasted with just butter, honey, or peanut butter spread over it.
When you live in a house with to chocolate loving girls, the best way to their heart is anything chocolate. In this double chocolate banana bread, the bread come out super moist and tender plus it is packed with chocolate flavor and little chunks of banana throughout. The preparation is quite simple and the smell as this bake is amazing, it will make your house smell amazing all day with the smell of chocolate. The bread is perfect for a breakfast any day or even a great dessert.
In these blueberry and lemon sweet rolls, the rolls come out soft and packed with sweet blueberries and lemon flavor. Then on top of that, it is covered with a sweet lemon infused cream cheese frosting that oozes down the sides of each of the roll. The rolls are perfect for any breakfast and they will stay soft for a few days when packed into air tight containers. It is worth every second of the wait while making them.
When it comes with breakfast, one of the best is a big american breakfast with eggs, bacon and potatoes fried up. It is the ultimate comfort food on a nice weekend morning. The only issue is the amount of preparation to get the whole meal all together at the same time. Plus the amount of pans it takes to fulfill the task. With these twice baked potato bowls, you get the essentials of the whole breakfast neatly packed into a potato half. Plus the preparation time is small and the clean up is only a couple dishes at the end.
One thing a big breakfast cant go out with a great slice of toast to go along with it. In this English muffin bread, the bread comes out with many little holes and crannies for the butter and jam to stick to. The bread comes out soft but firm making it easy to slice and not rock hard after toasting like some other homemade bread recipes. The bread is very quick and easy to make making it great for someone that loves to bake, but lacking the time.
One of my favorite breakfast items is homemade cinnamon roll, but sometimes you don't have the time to proof the dough and so on for the time consuming task of making them. This cinnamon pecan streusel coffee cake has the taste of a fresh cinnamon roll within fraction of the time. It is also has airy texture like coffee cake is known for.
As winter peaks with its brutally cold weather here in Minnesota, it was time to bring some brightness with these citrus packed lemon muffins. These lemon crumb muffins come out moist and packed with a great lemon flavor. The muffins are them topped with a lemon infused crumble and glaze that brings a boost of energy in the morning. Within one bite, you will feel the warmth of a nice summer day.
