• Classic Banana Bread

    January 7, 2021juliasplate

    Happy Wednesday friends! My all time favorite dessert is banana bread. I’ve never made a banana recipe that I didn’t love…chocolate chip, chocolate marble, plain banana, banana nut, anything, I love them all! It’s such a comforting dessert, perfect with a glass of milk, a scoop of ice cream, or a warm hot cocoa. I also love that banana bread is a great way to use up extra bananas around your house that won’t get eaten before they go bad. For this recipe, you need 2 bananas. I like to use bananas that are about “halfway ripe” for banana bread.…

  • Chocolate Covered Strawberry Cookies

    January 6, 2021juliasplate

    Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, which means I’ve got to get all of my sweet recipes ready! Last year, I made these Chocolate Covered Strawberry Cookies and they were my favorite treat all month long during February. They’re sweet, fun to make, and they’re super festive for a Valentine’s Day dinner or gift. These cookies taste just like a chocolate covered strawberry, with the tanginess of the berry that’s perfectly balanced with the sweetness of the chocolate. They also have a light layer of icing in between, which ties the whole flavor of the cookie together! If you’re…

  • 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…

    Happy New Year everyone! I’m excited to kick off a new year of recipes with these Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Muffins! These muffins are gluten free and dairy free too! I love baking cookies, but lately I’ve been making all the muffin recipes! Especially the big, bakery style muffins that have a fluffy texture and sweet flavor.  A couple of weeks ago, my mom asked me if I could make a peanut butter chocolate muffin, and these quickly became one of my favorite recipes I’ve made! They’re so easy, and a fun way to switch things up in the kitchen.…

  • Cinnamon Crumble Coffee Cake

    December 28, 2020juliasplate

    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 Copycat Junior Mints

    December 28, 2020juliasplate

    I don’t know about you guys, but Junior Mints were my FAV movie theatre snack when I was little. I had no interest in popcorn, soda, etc, it was all about Junior Mints. When my family would walk into the theatre, I would head straight for the snack counter and secure the goods…so naturally, 20-year old me had to recreate them in a healthier version. These junior mints have 4 ingredients, they’re low in sugar, and have the same sweet, minty taste! For this recipe, I used two of my absolute favorite brands, McCormick Spice and Silk!    Ingredients You’ll…

  • Healthy Blueberry Muffins

    December 27, 2020juliasplate

    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…

  • Baked Oatmeal Bars

    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,…

  • 5 Ingredient Edible Cookie Dough

    December 26, 2020juliasplate

    Cookie dough is a classic favorite! Some say it’s best out of the bowl of cookie dough for baking, but why not let it have it’s own separate recipe?! This 5 Ingredient Edible Cookie Dough only has five ingredients, and the texture is so perfect! Its a single serve recipe, but you can always increase the ingredients to make it a bigger batch for more people. This might be a good idea, because I can guarantee it’ll disappear fast! This cookie dough is made with almond flour, oats, peanut butter, maple syrup, and dark chocolate chips. It has a simple…
