Fruit Compote

Let’s face it: mornings suck. So let me paint you a picture of how they can be less sucky: you wake up, leap out of bed because you know you’ll soon be enjoying a delicious breakfast, brush your teeth, make and enjoy said delicious breakfast, get ready for school and leave the house feeling satisfied and happy that you got to eat something awesome. This fruit compote can make all of that happen😍😍 It’s super easy to make and tastes absolutely amazing with oatmeal, yogurt, or even on toast. It’s also full of fruit and contains no added sugar, which makes it a great, healthy way to start your day. Now go ahead and get ready to slay your mornings, because this compote is pretty dang good.

Cinnamon Raisin Apple Pancakes

Happy Pancake Day!! I wasn’t able to post yesterday, but you should be glad I made you wait because I have waaay more time today and was able to make these delicious pancakes. If I would’ve posted yesterday it probably would’ve been a nasty spinach salad or something. Pancakes are the best, man. Especially when they have apples and raisins in them like these ones do! They’re sweet and cinnamony and come together faster than it takes me to eat a whole batch, and trust me, I’m a pretty speedy eater when pancakes are involved. Now I’ll let you get to the recipe, because I don’t know about you, but I don’t like when blogs write twenty million things that you have to scroll through before you get to the pancakes. BRING ON THE PANCAKES ALREADY!

Cinnamon Raisin Apple Pancakes

Servings: 2

Total Time: 45 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 1 ripe banana
  • 1 1/3 cup oats
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 2 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 1/4 cup water
  • 1 small apple, peeled and diced
  • 1/4 cup raisins

Directions:

  1. In a blender, combine the oats, banana, chia seeds, cinnamon, coconut oil, baking powder and water until smooth. Transfer the batter to a bowl and stir in the apples and raisins.
  2. Heat a pan over medium-low heat. Spoon the batter into the pan by tablespoons. Cook the pancakes on the first side until bubbles appear and stay in the pancake, about 2-3 minutes. Flip and cook for another 2-3 minutes, then transfer to a plate.
  3. Enjoy!!

Hope you like these beauties!! I’m pretty sure that they would freeze well, and you could just nuke some in the microwave in a Monday morning and be good to go. That’s the kind of pick me up I need on a Monday, anyway.

Chocolate Dipped Bananas

You guys, I literally thought that it was Sunday today! Funny how summer does that to you🤣 So, as a kind of last minute post, I decided to whip up these chocolate dipped bananas. I’ve had dessert on the brain lately;) This frozen treat is pretty simple to whip up, although a bit messy. All you have to do is make some chocolate sauce, dip the bananas in it, then sprinkle them with nuts or other toppings and throw them in the freezer. You don’t really even have to freeze them if you don’t want, you can just eat them as is. Spoiler Alert: THEY’RE REALLY GOOD. Hope you enjoy;)

Chocolate Dipped Bananas

Serves: 4

Total Time: 60-75 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 2 bananas, slightly ripe
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 2 tbs coconut oil
  • 1 tbs water

Other:

  • 4 small skewers

Directions:

  1. In a small pot, mix together the cocoa powder, maple syrup and coconut oil. Bring to a simmer on the stove and stir until well combined.
  2. Remove the chocolate sauce from the heat once it’s reached a simmer. Add in the water and stir. The result should be a smooth sauce.
  3. Pour the sauce into a small bowl, or something that will be easy to dip the bananas into. Cut the bananas in half. Using your hands, dip the bananas into the chocolate sauce and then lay them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  4. Stick a skewer into each banana and sprinkle with desired toppings.
  5. Eat as is or put the tray in the freezer for about 45 minutes to an hour.
  6. Remove the bananas from the freezer and enjoy!

I already know that there won’t be enough hot days left this summer to enjoy as many of these bananas as I want to🤧🤧 But I guess that eating a frozen dessert in the fall never killed anyone! See you guys on Wednesday;)
