    This year, I’ve been trying to start making as many things at home as I can. It’s been so fun and I just love knowing exactly what’s in my foods and how they’re made. So, last summer, I started making my own nut butter at home! I was always intimidated by it because I wasn’t sure if I’d be able to make it and if it would be as good as my favorite store bought brands! This recipe is the first nut butter that I made, but there are four more that I’ll be sharing soon! I’ve got to say…

    Hi friends! I’m so excited because today I’m sharing one of my favorite recipes! I love a crunchy granola recipe. Making granola at home is the best because it is so much cheaper than purchasing granola at the store, and you can customize it with any flavors that you want! This granola is flavored with cinnamon and coconut sugar, and it has the perfect crunch. I like to use my granola to top oatmeal, yogurt bowls, or to have as a snack with fruit. Ingredients You’ll Need to Make This Granola:  Oats Flax Seeds 1/4 cup Chopped Nuts Melted Coconut…

  • Sugar + Spice Baked Oats

    January 5, 2021juliasplate

    Now that it’s officially winter and it’s snowy and cold, I’m all about the cozy recipes, especially for breakfast! In my family, we LOVE to make a big pan of baked oatmeal every Saturday or Sunday morning. It’s such a cozy, comforting breakfast and we just love it. Lately, I’ve also been making single serve baked oats in the microwave during the week. The big pan in the oven takes 40 minutes to bake, so when I’m busier during the week, I like to make these smaller sizes. This week’s flavor is Sugar + Spice! It’s got the spice of…

  • Cinnamon Crumble Coffee Cake

    I love starting my mornings with a BIG cup of coffee. It always gets my day going and is a cozy way to start the day off. Well, your morning coffee’s new best friend is this Cinnamon Crumble Coffee Cake! I truly can’t think of a better combination. This crumble cake has the lightest, fluffiest texture, paired with the soft streusel that tops the cake. It’s got a sugar and spice vibe, with the bite of the cinnamon and the sweetness of the coconut sugar. I love coffee cakes that are fluffier and that have a crispy top layer to…

  • Healthy Blueberry Muffins

    You guys! When my mom tasted this recipe, she said…” I think that’s one of the best things you’ve ever made”! I have to say, it’s one of my top five favorites! A Saturday morning experiment turned into the best muffins ever! They have the same texture as a bakery-style blueberry muffin, but they’re made with whole ingredients, and they’re gluten, dairy, and nut free.  These muffins are sweetened with coconut sugar and maple syrup, and their base is gluten free all purpose flour. I think you all know I’m a chocolate-lover, and it’s rare that I really love a recipe…

    You all know I love oatmeal in all of its many forms…whether its a hot bowl of stovetop oats, chilly overnight oats, granola, granola bars, the list goes on! But, one of my favorites and my family’s favorites is baked oats! I can’t put my finger on it, but there’s something about them that’s just so perfect! Especially in the winter months, there’s nothing better. I like to serve them hot, and then eat the bars cold out of the fridge as leftovers! These Baked Oatmeal Bars are my favorite! You can have them for breakfast, dessert, or a snack,…
