    •  If you have ever wanted to attempt banana bread this is the recipe for you. It is a no-fail super delish and gooey banana bread. The ingredients are simple and easy to find at most grocery stores, you might have to make a trip to a specialty health food store for the sugar (if desired). My 11 year daughter loves to bake up a loaf every time we have a few extra ripe bananas that I haven't had the chance to freeze for smoothies. 

      Gooey Banana Bread




      4 Very Ripe Bananas

      1 1/2 Cups Whole Wheat Pastry Flour

      1/2 Cup Coconut Sugar (sucanat, or other sugar substitute) 

      2/3 Cup Coconut Oil

      1 tsp. Vanilla

      1 1/2 tsp Baking Powder

      1 1/2 tsp Baking Soda

      2 tsp Cinnamon

      1 tsp Pumpkin Pie Spice

      Optional add ins:

      1/4 cup Chocolate Chips

      1/4 cup crushed walnuts


      Preheat oven to 350 degrees, grease loaf pan with coconut oil or line with parchment paper.

      In a large bowl mash together the bananas, vanilla, sugar, and coconut oil. In a separate bowl combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and pumpkin pie spice. Mix well, then stir flour mixture into banana mixture until evenly combined. Add in optional ingredients. Pour into loaf pan. Bake in over for 40 minutes or until you can poke with a toothpick and it comes out clean.

    •  I had the chance to be out of town for a few days with some girlfriends while my wonderful husband stayed home with my four daughters. It is so great for them to spend time together and always great for mom to take a few days to rejuvenate!

      To my wonderful surprise my five year took over the kitchen and created her, as she calls it, "Famous Secret Recipe" which has recently been changed to "Special Recipe" because she loves telling everyone how to make it! This dish has become quite famous in the last month at our house. Now all four of my kiddos make it on a daily basis and even share with friends! It is so simple, yet so delish. Emily has converted many friends and even a few new neighbors have had the delightful chance to taste her special recipe!

      Emily's "Special Recipe" Chick Peas




      1 can chick peas, drained and rinsed



      Onion Powder

      Garlic Powder



      Combine all ingredients in a small bowl, add seasonings to taste. Each of my kids make it slightly different based on their taste buds and they munch on these while reading, watching a movie, or playing.

      We also use these new recipe to top salads and they make a great center for lunches!
