Pumpkin Bread

Hi guys!

Just popping in to add a new, delicious and wholesome recipe!

Even though its not fall, I had a craving for pumpkin so whipped up this pumpkin loaf! 🙂
The recipe has no sugars, nor stevia (for those who aren’t a fan) and has no oils!
I’m not against using oils in recipes, but my coconut oil is always solid so it takes a lot of extra time to melt a large amount of it. o.o

This bread is moist without being too moist that its hard to swallow. The spelt flour helps prevent the bread from being too dense as well. Its hearty and filling enough to have a slice or two for breakfast, and naturals has about 5-6g of protein PER SLICE. 🙂

So hooray for applesauce! ^_^

Chocolate Chip Cookie Muffins

Hello guyss! 🙂

My favorite kind of cooking is definitely baking.
Maybe its because I have a huge sweet tooth, but I also enjoy watching it transform in the oven!
This recipe I attempted a few weeks ago, and kept working on it until I had a preferable texture.

Finally nailed it! Lsat time I used eggs- too dense. I was a little hesitant to try baking them without eggs, but figured its worth  try.
I also used two different flours to make them more light, and they kinda resembled Vita Tops o.o
But hey, they were AWESOME! (y)
