Lemon Blueberry Muffins (Paleo-Friendly)

These muffins truly encompass summer flavors in my opinion! They are a great breakfast or grab and go snack and have natural protein from the eggs and are lower in sugar. Like I said in the instructions, they are best when served warm, I love to reheat mine in the toaster oven. These can also be a great addition to meal prep!

Banana Bread Blondies

I’ve mentioned before that I have an issue where I HATE letting ripe bananas go to waste without baking with them. The benefit to you guys is lots of banana recipes! (If you haven’t already, I highly recommend you try my paleo banana donuts, banana flax waffles, granola stuffed banana cookies and my no-sugar-added banana bread!) Anyways, these blondies were the result of more ripe bananas and I thought, what HAVEN’T I made with ripe bananas … blondies! These also have no sugar added (sweetened only by banana), are paleo-friendly, gluten-free and make a great snack or dessert! They are a perfect healthy grab and go treat to add to your weekly meal prep!

Bakery Style Choco-Chip Zucchini Muffins (paleo friendly)

I don’t have kids yet (at least not kids that are outside of my stomach and that I have to feed separately from feeding myself) but I will very soon. And from what I’ve been told, lots of kids don’t love veggies. And let’s be honest, I meet lots of adults who don’t love them either. This is the perfect recipe for those people because the veggies are completely disguised in chocolate chip muffin form. And even if you LOVE veggies, this is a great way to get even more into your day. In my opinion, there is rarely such a thing as too many veggies. Anyways, this easy muffin recipe is paleo-friendly and free of all the usual suspects (grain-free, gluten-free, dairy-free, refined sugar-free, soy-free) but it’s SUPER fluffy and satisfying. I hope you try them!

Lemon Chia Seed Quinoa Bars

I have loved lemon poppyseed muffins since I was a kid, and this recipe is a more nutrient-dense twist on that. There are so many ingredients adding protein and fiber that they are really filling and give you long sustained energy while satisfying that ever-so sweet tooth. The bars are sweetened with raw honey, which, adds even more minerals to the mix! They make a great breakfast or snack on the go.

Creamy Coconut Chia Pudding

This recipe is stupid easy. You’ll do it once and be like “that was it?” … which, is one of the many reasons I love it so much. It’s also great for meal prep since it’s easy to make ahead, very portable, and lasts most of the week. This creamy coconut chia pudding can be eaten as a breakfast, snack, or even a topping for another food (ahem waffles and pancakes!) Bonus, it is completely free of processed ingredients and is full of healthy fats, fiber and protein to keep you full for a long while! Can’t wait to hear what your favorite toppings are.
