Apple Pie Granola

I am often asked how I create recipes.
Are you inspired from other recipes? Do you spend hours creating them? Do you go through a ton of trial and error?

 apple pie granola4

Yes – I am often inspired from others. But what inspires me most are the smells of each season and what is readily available in my pantry!

No – I normally do not spend hours creating them. I am a realist, and I know I don’t have hours to be cooking in the kitchen, nor do my readers.

No – I tend to stay in my safe zone =) I HATE wasting food so I will make sure I know it will turn out great! And luckily most recipes do turn out!

My apple pie granola was inspired by my love for granola and all things apple/cinnamon! I was completely out of granola and saw a huge container of rolled oats in my pantry and thought I would throw a fresh batch in the oven! And the smell… HEAVEN!

Apple Pie Granola

3 cups old fashioned rolled oats
2 tablespoons cinnamon
1/3 cup pure maple syrup
1/4 cup melted coconut oil
1/4 cup flax seeds
1/3 cup chopped chopped almonds
1/2 cup finely chopped apple bits
a pinch of salt

Pre-heat oven to 350.

In a large mixing bowl, combine all ingredients and stir until well combined.

Place on a large cooking sheet that is lined with parchment paper of a silicone mat.

Cook for approx 20 – 25 minutes – stirring every 5 minutes to help cook evenly.

Cool completely before placing in a large glass jar with a lid. Keep in a cool, dry place for up to 2 weeks.

Clean and Simple Breakfast Cookie

What if I told you you can have cookies for breakfast? Awesome, right?! Well these cookies are nutritious, full of fiber and completely good for you! Waaaaay better for you than store bought cookies that are full of artificial ingredients, preservatives and GMO’s.  Instead they are full of oats, bananas, nuts and seeds… and chocolate, if you would like.

And yes, I eat these cookies for breakfast. And snacks. And dessert. They are guilt free, animal product free, gluten free and 100% good for you!

And this is just ONE of my many recipes in my Clean Eating 101 Guidebook, too! <3


Clean and Simple Breakfast Cookies

– 1.5 cups of rolled oats
– 3 ripe bananas, smashed
– 1/4 cup each of nuts or seeds of your choice ( I used unsalted sunflower seeds, raw pumpkin seeds, flax seeds and raw almonds – I only used a few tablespoons of flax seeds)
– 1/4 cup dark chocolate chips, if desired
– 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

You can use whatever ingredients you have on hand! Dried fruit, chia seeds, walnuts, or just leave it with banana and oats! Experiment with other spices – nutmeg, pumpkin spice, etc.

Pre-heat oven to 350F.

Spoon out a large tablespoon of mixture and place on a cookie sheet that’s lined with parchment paper or a baking mat. Flatten out and shape into desired thickness and shape. I use my hands for this part and ditch the spoon!

Bake for 13-15 minutes. Once done place on a cooling rack to cool. They will be thick and chewy and completely irresistible!

5 Reasons Why You Are Gaining Weight

You are doing “everything right”. Yet, you are still not losing weight and maybe you are GAINING weight! Rest assured, you are not alone! Yes, losing weight can be a struggle and often times it can be down right frustrating. But even the smallest tweak in your routine can help you reach your weight loss goals faster than ever!


1. Your portion sizes are out of control.

This is a huge reason people struggle with their weight loss journey. Most of the time it isn’t WHAT you are eating, but rather HOW MUCH you are eating. Portion sizes have been growing and growing over the years which has made us un-aware of how much we really should be eating at one time. Take a week and measure out your food based on your caloric needs. You may be surprised by the results!

2. That so called “health food” is NOT healthy.

You had good intentions this week. You went to the grocery store and bought some granola, gluten free snacks and organic breakfast bars. You have been eating these “healthy foods” week after week… so what gives?!
Let me tell you a little secret – you still have to read those ingredients and nutrition facts! Snacks are snacks, no matter how healthy they seem to be! And if you are choosing these so called “healthy snacks” over REAL food (like fresh fruit or veggies) then you are sabotaging your weight loss. Feel free to keep these in the pantry but only use them in emergency situations. And yes, I love granola… a little too much. But granola is very calorie dense… and who really eats 1/4 cup of granola anyway?! Not me!

3. You are not getting ENOUGH calories.

I am not sure who came up with the magical number of 1200 calories a day to lose weight. But based on my research, my own clients progress, and my own progress, eating 1200 or LESS will turn your metabolism upside down and makes it EXTREMELY difficult to lose weight. Your body starts to go into starvation mode and will store fat. Your daily activities and workout level plays a huge part in this as well, but I always suggest anywhere between 1400 – 1600 calories per day.

4. You are drinking your calories

Drinks have calories and we often forget this. A soda, fruit juice (whether it’s pure juice or not), lattes/mochas/foo-foo drinks and alcohol needs to be taken into consideration each day. Just because you are not physically eating it, you could consume an EXTRA 500 calories OR MORE if not careful!

5. You may have a medical condition

If you know you are doing EVERYTHING right – exercising, eating the right foods and portion sizes, tracking your meals/calories – I highly suggest seeing a medical doctor. Before you start going on a juice cleanse or starting the next fad diet, get some routine blood work done and see if there is anything going on that you may not know about. Your health is EVERYTHING!

Embarking on a healthy lifestyle is not always easy. There will be easy days and hard days. Guess what? We are only human! It’s ok! Just remember to stay consistent and show up each and every day! You can do this – I promise!

Protein Blueberry Muffins

Today after Jordan got home from school, he looked at his chef coat that was hanging in the laundry room and said “Mom, let’s bake something!” I asked him, “ What would you like to make?” “BLUEBERRY MUFFINS!!!”

b;u muff 11

So my little shoe-less chef got what he wanted – Blueberry Muffins!  But not just any blueberry muffins, protein muffins! These muffins are made with Greek yogurt and oats to add a power punch! Because let’s face it moms… we try to make ANYTHING healthy these days. Why stop with baked goods?

blu muff 1

Protein Blueberry Muffins makes 12

  • 2 cups organic un-bleached flour OR organic whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup oats
  • 2/3 cup Organic raw sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cups plain Greek yogurt + 2 tablespoons raw honey mixed in
  • 2 large eggs
  • 4 Tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup frozen blueberries

Heat oven to 350°. Spray muffin tin with coconut spray or place liners in each slot.

Since Jordan was helping me, I kept the mixing super simple! In a separate bowl, place flour, sugar, oats, baking powder, baking soda and salt. No need to mix.

In a large mixing bowl, place softened butter and mix for 30 seconds on low. Next add eggs and mix gently. Add yogurt and vanilla and mix until all combined.

Now add all of the dry ingredients into the wet and mix until combined. Once combined, fold in blueberries.

Spoon the batter into the muffin tin. Fill them up! Trust me… all the way to the top! Place in the over and bake for 25 minutes. Let cool and enjoy!
