This GF overnight oats with hemp and chia is a great vegan, dairy-free breakfast that is chock-full of protein, fiber and heathy fats. It’s the perfect
This warm quinoa cereal is perfect for those busy fall or winter mornings, as it takes under 5 minutes to make and will warm you from the inside out.
This green ginger smoothie is more like a green ginger juice, but I’m calling it a smoothie, as you get the added fiber from all the ingredients.
This lemon olive oil pound cake is ultra-lemony, super moist and chock full of flavor, and is gluten-free and dairy-free to boot! It’s kid approved
Happy fall back Sunday! I hope you all took advantage of that extra hour today. Maybe you got up earlier and were productive, or you took advantage of the extra hour and slept in. I took advantage of that extra hour and slept in, and I don’t have any guilt about it. I look forward to this day all year!
“Grab-and-go” breakfasts are a huge part of my life these days. Weekday mornings are hectic, and some mornings I just want something that I can quickly grab from the fridge and take with me and chow down on the ferry, or in the office. I just love overnight refrigerator oats, because they’re ULTRA EASY to make, (takes just 5 minutes), are ready to go in the morning, and healthy to boot!
WAIT, before you scratch your head and wonder to yourself, “what the heck is Marin mama posting and making these days,” just read through this post a bit and you will gain a bit of insight into my insanity.
Do pancakes on a weekday morning seem to good to be true, or too difficult for working or crazed parents? Well, that doesn’t have to be the case anymore, as I found recipe where most of the batter can be made ahead the night before. Yippee! I’m not even sure if I made any sense there in my intro, (see, I’m typing this up at 5:00 am, so bear with me) but basically the batter for these pancakes can be made ahead the night before, so all you have to do in the morning (when you’re all tired, crazed and sleepy-eyed) is melt some butter, (in the microwave folks, so it’s like 30 seconds here) crack and egg, mix both into the batter, get out your griddle and within 10 minutes you will have some hot fresh oatmeal pancakes and some happy kids (or adults) in your house!
Yes, I’m a bit obsessed with breakfast! It’s my absolute favorite meal of the day! I love starting out the day with an easy, tasty, hot and healthy power-filled breakfast, and this cereal fits the bill. It’s a blend of quinoa and steel-cut oats, (which in my eyes and tummy is pure perfection) that can be made the night before, (in under 6 minutes) which is even better. All you have to do come morning is turn on the stove and re-heat the cereal, easy peasy.
What?? Another granola recipe Marin mama? Yep, I’m posting another granola recipe peeps, because I’m an oat crazed gal who loves something sweet and crunchy to nosh on in the afternoon, and this granola bark fits the bill! It’s crunchy, sweet, (but not too sweet) full of goodness and very addicting! I made this bark up the other day and it went very fast, so fast that I had to make another batch the next day so that I would have something to photograph. The kids and I couldn’t stop ourselves, we kept going back for seconds, thirds and so on…
