Guilt-free indulgence has a name. And a very long one for that matter. I tried keeping it short and sweet, but couldn’t get myself to leave out either one of the components. Can you blame me? Caramelized bananas had to be part of the name, I mean we’re talking CARAMELIZED bananas here. Which is quite possibly one of my new obsessions. It’s what happens when you want to make banana muffins, but don’t have any ripe bananas and zero patience. More on that in a second.

Peanut butter, oats, and streusel are equally as dear to my heart, which is why I’m growing more and more fond of the name. I know it’s a mouthful, much like the muffins themselves, but one bite and you’ll understand why they deserve a special name.

I took all of my breakfast wants and combined them into one amazing muffin. Not only was I looking for a quick breakfast on the go, but it had to be satisfying, give me a lot of energy and leave me looking forward to the next day when I could have another.

All of which were met in this handheld goodie. [Read more…]

Am I the only one who thinks July and therefore summer is going by way too fast?! I am not even close to being ready to think about anything but sun and sunshine. So let’s move on and talk about the topic at hand. Chocolate & PB Brownies.

This recipe was on the back burner for quite some time. I had an inkling that being around these brownies would be more than I can handle. And boy, oh boy, were my suspicions confirmed.

I’m blaming it totally and completely on Reese’s Peanut Butter Oreos aka The Bestest Invention There Ever Was. I am sorta hoping that the limited edition is here to stay. Who isn’t?!

You didn’t think that I would stop at S’moreos, did you? Yeah, you know me. So here’s one of the most epic brownies that almost made it out of our kitchen :). [Read more…]

I know, I know. Scones are usually known for their crumbly, dry texture, but before you think you can’t get excited about ’em, let me try to convince you differently. I promise it’ll be worth your time ;).

Not only are scones perfect for any time of the day, they can also be prepared from start till finish in about 30 minutes or so. What’s better than being able to have a freshly baked breakfast treat ready in no time without having to do much prep work, especially now that it’s hot outside and no one wants to spend a lot of time in the kitchen?

S’moreos

S’mores are gaining a delicious addition – Oreos. Who knew the campfire favorite could taste even better?!

Smoreos

Happy Monday! We’re kicking things off with my favorite new sweet addiction and the one thing I couldn’t get enough of this weekend. Ready?

Yep, we’re talking S’mores today. This is one of those times when I had a brilliant idea and just couldn’t wait to tell you all about it… until google came along and showed me that I am not as clever as I thought I was. Turns out there are other people that discovered S’moreos before it ever entered my mind.

Oh well, better late than never, ha.

It all started with a package of Reese’s Oreos that I picked up last Wednesday. I had been anxiously awaiting for stores to carry them ever since I heard about ’em a couple of weeks ago. Have you had a chance to try them yet? I wasn’t a huge fan of their latest editions, but had no doubt that this one would be the bomb. I am a huge fan of Peanut Butter Oreos and knew that the addition of chocolate just had to be ah-mazing. Can you tell I’m head over heels? [Read more…]

Hey, hey. I have been waiting to share these cookies with you for what seems like forever now. I made this batch of yummies a couple of weeks ago in preparation for today’s post. What’s so special about today’s post, you ask? These cookies were created for Nikki’s blog over at Chef in Training. I’ve recently become a monthly contributor to her site and feel so honored to do so.

Which is precisely why this post will be short and sweet – much like these cookies. They are packed with melted chocolate, dark cocoa powder and big chunks of chocolate. The addition of creamy peanut butter and Reese’s Pieces was out of pure necessity, of course :). And they are pretty short-lived… seriously, I’d be surprised if these lasted more than a couple of hours in your house. If they do, please tell me your secret for self-control, ha!

Thick, soft and chewy. Just how I like my cookies. Guys, I promise you this recipe will be worth checking out. I hope you hop on over for these outrageously scrumptious goodies by clicking here and browse through some of Nikki’s incredible recipes, too. Thank you so much and have the most wonderful Wednesday, friends!!

XOXO
