Homemade Granola

Granola is actually super easy to make. And, when you make it at home, you can make it with far less sugar than the processed granola you’d buy. Add to yogurt for a healthy breakfast. I have this recipe on a hand-written card, given to me a few years ago by a friend, who got […]

Banana Baked Oatmeal

For a healthy but satisfying and hearty breakfast, try baked oatmeal. With banana and cinnamon, it taste like banana bread. Serve with a dollop of peanut butter on top, for added protein and deliciousness.

Not to mention this pumpkin cake, and that pumpkin torte. My pumpkin contribution: this pumpkin gingerbread loaf. Cinnamon and ginger, with a subtle taste of molasses. With only […]
