Happy Friday lovelies!

My goodness it feels like it’s been a while since I sat down here and shared something new with you guys, so I am so happy to finally be doing this! We’re in for a bit of a rainy weekend here in Vancouver so I have some pretty big plans to finally share ta new recipe with your guys. After I’m through here, my kitchen will probably turn into something of a baking factory – as it often does on weekends when I have a bit of free time.

Fall is in full swing over here in Vancouver, so it’s safe to say I’m officially craving warm, comforting flavors & hearty snacks to get me through the chilly days. I always keep this Maple Pecan Granola stocked in our pantry at this time of year because one of Cole and I’s favourite things to snack on throughout the day is granola – and this granola is chock full of pecans, almonds, oats and maple goodness. So basically it’s downright irresistible to us.

Banoffee Pie Granola Bars

Happy Tuesday lovelies! I am so excited to be partnering up with Best Friends for Frosting to share this super simple recipe for my Banoffee Pie Granola Bars with you today!

Not only do these granola bars make for an amazingly delicious breakfast or snack, but they also double as a super yummy dessert. Basically it’s like getting three meal options for the price of one – and what could be better than that ?!

This is a nice big recipe so you can easily serve up a couple slices for breakfast, pack a few leftovers along with you for an afternoon snack, and still have some leftover to reheat and serve warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream for dessert. Mhmmmmm

But how do they taste you ask? Well to put it simply, they taste just how they sound… like a banoffee pie; Honestly, need I say more? The flavor of the caramelized banana combined with the toasty oats and the nutty pecans… It’s simply irresistible. If you are a banoffee pie fan, you are going to absolutely love these granola bars. So head on over to Best Friends for Frosting to get the recipe for these via this link here !

Happy Baking lovelies <3 <3

Apple Pie Baked Breakfast Oats

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again… I’m a freak for oatmeal. Seriously, I could eat it all day everyday, and never get sick of it. No joke, oatmeal for breakfast, lunch and dinner is kind of my definition of heaven.

Warm oatmeal, cold oatmeal, overnight oats, baked oatmeal, stove top oatmeal… whatever the type just hand me a spoon and I’ll be a happy camper.

Apple Spice Porridge Mix

I think most people will admit to having a favourite season – do you have a favourite season? Fall is my favourite – So as the summer winds down, temperatures start to cool, and the leaves start to turn here in Vancouver, in combination with the anticipation of apple/pear season and the coming of allllll the new fall fashions – I  personally can’t help but welcome the season with open arms.

Some people think I’m totally batty for dreaming about fall, when it seems to them like summer has just begun, but I can’t help it. I have always been a lover of all things related to fall and once the end of August rolls around, I am usually ready for the change of seasons, and start experiencing intense cravings of all things related to apple and pumpkin spice. {Is anybody else just counting down the days until Pumpkin Spice Lattes make their triumphant return to Starbucks??? <3<3<3 }

There is no one specific reason for why I love Fall so much- {okay so maybe I could chock my obsession with the season up to Pumpkin Spice Latte’s as the one reason} – but I would like to think that my love for fall comes from a combination of so many little things.

Spiced Oatmeal with Caramelized Blueberries & Toasted Pecans

Happy Friday lovelies! We are heading into an amazingly gorgeous weekend of sun and temperatures that might even spike into the low thirties and I am so pumped to get outside and enjoy the weather! So if you are on the same page as me and have some big weekend plans to take advantage of the weather and get active – make sure you start your busy weekend mornings off right with a healthy and delicious breakyfast! It is the most important meal of the day after-all 😉

This past weekend we had a little bit of a break from the Haney Farmers Market, because as of right now I have only registered myself to be in two per month. Even though I love spending my Saturdays at the market selling our baked goodies to hungry patrons, it was definitely nice to take a little bit of a breather and have some free time to spend with Cole. So with a weekend free of any obligations or commitments, and a weather forecast of nothing but sunny skies and temperatures in the high twenties, we were stoked to get outside for some much needed weekend adventures!
