Paleo Chocolate Coffee Banana Popsicles |

Chocolate Coffee Banana Popsicles

For the past two weeks, I kicked off my morning with one of these Chocolate Coffee Banana Popsicles. Consider me a happy woman. Now the recipe lives here so you can start your day the right way, too!

The list of awesome things about these popsicles is pretty long. For starters, you only need 5 ingredients to make these. Oh, and they’re paleo, gluten free, vegan, and unsweetened. Cold brew coffee is a crucial component, which means they’re perfect for breakfast.

I don’t know about you, but my day is instantly better when I have a popsicle first thing in the morning!


How to Make Cold Brew Coffee at Home |

How to Make Cold Brew Coffee

Cold Brew Coffee—my favorite drink of spring, summer, and autumn. (Admittedly not winter because in ND’s subzero winter temps you definitely want a warm drink.)

Cold brew is all the rage, with coffee shops and retailers selling “cold brew coffee kits” that are supposedly the key to making cold brew yourself.

Save yourself the money. I’m going to show you how to make cold brew coffee at home. You likely already have everything you need…and if you don’t, the supplies are cheap. Seriously. Then, you’ll have the tools to make cold brew whenever you want!


Paleo Plantain, Bacon, & Chive Frittata |

Plantain, Bacon, & Chive Frittata

Refresh your breakfast routine with a hearty paleo Plantain, Bacon, & Chive Frittata!

YES—plantains make a return to the blog. What better way to take your breakfast to the next level?

Finding new ways to incorporate plantains into breakfast foods has been on my radar for a while. I’ve been brainstorming, typing up recipe ideas, and testing for months. The internet is full of plantain waffle and pancake recipes, so I thought I’d try something a little different (I hardly make waffles or pancakes anyway).

Honestly, I’ve hit on something here. Sweet yellow plantains pair so well with the savory flavors of crunchy bacon and garlicky chives! Eggs are pretty neutral, so they act as a vehicle and extra protein source for an all-around spectacular breakfast.


Sunbutter Sweet Potato Brownies |

Sunbutter Sweet Potato Brownies

I’ve been daydreaming about brownies. So when my friend Kylee from Kai Fitness asked if I could help her come up with some recipes using Sunbutter, naturally brownies were the first thing that came to mind. Soon, these fudgy Sunbutter Sweet Potato Brownies were born!

This recipe is the last in a series of Sunbutter recipes I made with Kylee of Kai Fitness! 

Quick note: Kylee asked me to create a recipe or two for the giveaway. This post isn’t sponsored by Sunbutter, but the giveaway is.
