Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins-THM XO

Baking and Warm Drinks

Are you itching to bake some goods and sip some warm drinks? I can not believe it is that time of year, but here it is! First on my list, was to whip up some healthy Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins with the sprouted whole wheat flour I have on hand. Pumpkin has to be one of my favorite “healthy” additions to baked goods! I love the moisture it adds to recipes. What is your favorite added ingredient?

Tangy Strawberries and Cream Smoothie – Fuel Pull

Mmmmmmm

Beat the Heat

Have you noticed a lack of frozen berries in the grocery aisle lastly? I don’t know about you, but here in Kansas, we have had little to choose from! Frozen berries for making a homemade smoothie, etc. must be a hot item! It’s been so muggy here, hopefully many are making good use of their blenders! I was able to purchase a VERY large 64 ounce of frozen strawberries last week. So making some new smoothie recipes was a must!

Peanut Butter Bars – THM Crossover

SWEET TREAT

We haven’t done much baking in the last few weeks….so hot here in Kansas. Finally, I made a batch of cookies, since the kids were back to school this week! So–I took advantage of the hot oven and tried out a new recipe! Peanut Butter Bars have been a favorite of mine for years, but I needed to “THMify” them! This recipe is adapted from my husband’s Aunt Darla’s Peanut Butter Bars. As soon as I saw a sugar-free version of sweetened condensed milk, I knew I needed to try to make a version of these sweet treats!

Sugar Free Summer Drink Roundup

My 4 year-old daughter ran up to me today and said, “Mommy, you’re famous!” I replied, “Why am I famous?” “You found my critter bunny when you were cleaning the toy room!” I thought it was so cute that she thought I was famous! I am deep cleaning the toy room this week as 4 of our kiddos are at camp, because my 6 month old is beginning to roll, scoot, and make his way across the floor…..no more little tiny toys in the toy room!

Sprouted Flour Chocolate Chip Zucchini Muffins

zucchini season!

It’s zucchini season! Around here where I live-Central Kansas-it’s a joke to say, “start locking your car doors, if you don’t want any unwanted zucchini!” I have a plentiful supply of zucchini and yellow summer squash pouring out of my garden at the moment. I’m picking it, the kids are picking it, and still we end up with big whoppers or sunburned long-yellow necks.

Sugar-Free Lemon Berry Slush

Mmmmmmmm….

It has been very hot and muggy here in Kansas! I have drank more water in the last two weeks, than I have all year long….which is a bit behind my water intake, since I am 5 weeks postpartum! My mid-wife would love me drinking this much water while I continue to nurse my little buddy! Anyway, this Sugar-Free Lemon Berry Slush hit this spot as I was dreaming up something cold one afternoon!

Caramel Cookie Bars

Can you believe they are healthy?

Since starting my healthy fat/healthy carbs lifestyle 3 years ago, I have made many a flops in the dessert category? How bout you? A few that had way too little of sweetness, some that had too much bitter stevia…..well, this dessert is one that’s hard to screw up! I love the caramel recipe in these bars! In fact, I use it in my Sprouted Caramel Rolls! It is so good and has a great flavor. (Watch for recipe coming soon!)
