Pumpkin Cinnamon French Toast & Caramelized Bananas!

Happy Thanksgiving! Being in California right now makes it feel more like May rather than almost December. As I sit here in shorts and a tank top, I am feeling thankful for the weather! :) The other morning, one of my younger sisters, Jordyn, and I wanted to make everyone breakfast. We decided to do a healthy spin off one of our favorites, French Toast! Are you tired of pumpkin yet? I’m not! ;) You Need: *Whole Wheat Bread *1 cup Pure Pumpkin *1 cup Unsweetened Almond Milk *2 Tablespoons Ground Cinnamon *2 Tablespoons Agave *2 Tablespoons of Stevia* 1 Egg White* Mix all the ingredients (minus the bread) in a large bowl!

Mini Cupcake Omelets!

So, I am 99.95% sure that my heater is blowing out cold air. My apartment is SO cold!! Currently, I am cuddled up in a huge sweatshirt and blanket and am still chilly. The worst part, my landlord isn’t answering his phone (nooooo!) When it comes to the cold, I’m not the biggest fan. I grew up in California so I definitely prefer the heat. I really love omelets. They’re easy, filling, and so versatile. They’re also perfect to warm me up in this ice-chest of  a house! Making mini “cupcake” omelets is my new obsession. I bake a lot of them at a time, so that way, I can refrigerate them or freeze them, and I have breakfast and snacks all week! These cute little cupcakes only have 64 calories in them, as…

Quick & Easy Breakfast

When it comes to sleeping, I’m a huge fan. Especially now that the weather has turned so cold, it becomes harder to convince myself to leave my bed earlier than I absolutely have to… However, staying in my heaven bed has its downfalls. I hate skipping breakfast because when I’m sitting in class and the hunger begins to kick in, I’m more inclined to just grab something quick, which is never healthy and just a waste of money. I’ve started to find quick breakfasts which I can make and eat and still stay in bed longer than usual. :) One of my favorites is this recipe. All you need is *2 low-sodium rice cakes* 2 tablespoons warmed PB2 (or a nut butter) *¾ sliced banana* 2 tablespoons honey *2 tablespoons ground cinnamon* This breakfast…

It’s finally time to “fall” into pumpkin season. ;) (bad joke, bad joke) These pumpkin spice muffins are sooooo good and sooooo simple! Today the weather is really gross out. It’s very cold and rainy and, therefore, I’m boycotting outside. :) Instead, I decided to cozy up in a big sweater, brew some coffee, and bake some pumpkin goodies!

Every time I make them, I am harassed asked for the recipe, and everyone is SO surprised how simple it is. THEY’RE ONLY 3 INGREDIENTS! It doesn’t get much easier and cost efficient than that! All you need is: *1 can pure pumpkin* 1 box spiced cake mix* ½ bag semi-sweet chocolate chips* Make sure…
