Peach and Strawberry Scones

I saw this post on instagram today (by fitmittenkitchen) and I knew I had to make these scones. I loved the recipe as soon as I saw it. There are no eggs and only 1/4 cup of butter which is relatively low for scones. I also used half whole wheat flour and half white flour…

Lemony Blueberry Pie

Pie is everything. One of my favourite desserts. I cheated and used a store bought frozen pie shell for this but I think it’s easier than making pastry. The filling had like 3-4 cups of blueberries which sounds like a lot but it really shrunk when it’s cooked. Mixed with the blueberries was corn starch,…

Peach and Blueberry Crisp

When you have lots of fruit in the house, the best option is to make a crisp (or crumble – what’s the difference between them anyways?) This dessert came together in no time and it couldn’t be simpler. The base is just cut peaches, some pear and lots of blueberries, mixed with a little flour…

Skinny Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

I love oatmeal chocolate chip cookies but they usually have so much butter and sugar. I found this recipe and I thought it was much better than most recipes out there.  I probably would’ve put a little less honey cause it was a touch too sweet. I like that it uses whole wheat flour and…

Yogurt Bark

I wanted a sweet dessert tonight so I made some yogurt bark. It’s incredibly easy but you need a little patience because it takes some time to freeze up. You can put whatever you like and make it your own. I have blueberry yogurt (spread a kinda thin layer on parchment paper) then place your…

Peanut Butter Cups

Peanut butter and chocolate. What could be better? Well adding jam puts it up there. Those 3 things together are fantastically beautiful. I recently saw a video of making homemade peanut butter cups and they put jelly in it and I thought it was a great idea. I had like 2 lbs of chocolate chips…

Forgotten Cookies

Honestly, these cookies are magic. Well first of all, I guess they aren’t even really cookies, they’re meringues. Either way, they are my favourite treat to make during passover even though there are no special passover ingredients in them. They are probably one of the easiest things to make but they technically take a while…

Jam Hamantaschens

The Jewish holiday called purim is coming up and I did a little baking for the occasion. These are called hamantaschens and they’re essentially a cookie that can be filled with whatever you want – lemon curd, jam, chocolate chips. I got this recipe online (toriavey.com) and I’ve made it a few times in precious…

Banana Bread Muffins

I love muffins. I’ve had these muffins a few times now and I finally made a post about them. It’s a recipe from cookieandkate and I love them. I feel like they are much healthier than some other recipes that you find online and they are so delicious. Lots of banana flavour and I put…

Baked Apples with Streusel

I really wanted a sweet dessert but something that was still healthy. I decided to make a little crumble/streusel topping with oats, brown sugar, cinnamon and a little oil. I put that on apple slices and popped them in a 375 degree oven. Since they were so thin, it only took about 10 minutes to…

Strawberry Frozen Yogurt

I have been trying to make healthier desserts, so I thought frozen yogurt would be a good solution. You can make it as complex as you like, but I just used some strawberry yogurt and added milk until it was a pourable consistency. Then I put it in my ice cream maker and let it…
