in college, an everything bagel w/ a thick layer of cream cheese or a bagel breakfast sandwich was the cure. i can’t say that i have had either of those things in a LONG time, but that’s all about to change!! my new bagel recipe is grain-free, paleo, chewy, moist, & EASY to accomplish. granted, these bagels are not as chewy and thick as a bagel from NY bagel or a special bake shop, but they are GOOD and they satisfy the bagel need for sure.
so carrot cake is like THE cake that is a true treat in my mind. i don’t know if it’s the cream cheese frosting or the multiple additions of raisins, walnuts, or even coconut/pineapple, but every time i hear or see or eat carrot cake, i want some more. this loaf is truly PERFECT for any day of the week as a breakfast, snack, or dessert, because it checks off all those boxes and fixes the craving, but it isn’t as heavy or sweetened as a full on cake might be. it’s a recipe that’s honestly just necessary, and i’m SO EXCITED to share it today!
BANANA BREAD. can it get any more classic? i’ve been wanting to create my own banana bread recipe for a while, & i finally did it! it’s free of all the following: gluten, grains, dairy, soy, nuts, refined sugar. when it came out of the oven, i just had to sample it before i even took these photos, & trust me when i say this — my BANANA BREAD has been LANDED. it’s fluffy, dense, moist, full of banana flavor, & completely heavenly. let’s get to it!
