Healthy Maple Oat Nut Baked Pears with Cranberries

Healthy Maple Oat Nut Baked Pears with Cranberries

If you like getting creative with your breakfast food then you will love this decadent and super simple recipe!

 

I love the fruits that are in season this time of year and will find just about any excuse to use apples and pears in a recipe. I didn’t acquire a taste for pears until just a few years ago (not sure why because they are amazing). I can’t get enough of them now!

I tried baked pears last year and they were drizzled with honey and sprinkled with cinnamon. For so little ingredients, they were amazing and if you are just looking for a sweet and simple snack, that recipe is amazing. But if you want a more filling breakfast with your baked pears add some oats and crushed nuts for the ultimate Fall dish.

Healthy Banana Gingerbread Cake

Healthy Banana Gingerbread Cake

Before using up your extra ripe bananas on plain old banana bread, try adding a little spice and a little molasses to have the ultimate banana-gingerbread experience!

 

Molasses is one of my favorite sugars to work with because of how distinct the flavor is. Unlike honey or agave, molasses is very potent and can always be detected when used in a recipe. It’s mid-October so it’s totally cool that I’m transitioning from pumpkin to gingerbread flavored desserts, right? I just couldn’t wait! I love the Holiday Season and I believe it Starts October 1st!

This cake is so delicious as is so I chose opted out of icing and instead dusted it with a little vanilla protein powder.

Healthy Pumpkin French Toast with Vanilla Maple Drizzle

Healthy Pumpkin French Toast with Vanilla Maple Drizzle

I woke up this morning and decided there was nothing else I needed besides pumpkin French toast and a few cups of coffee, of course.


 

I made this delicious French toast using my favorite multi-grain sprouted bread from Trader Joe’s. I didn’t count up these calories for you because of how much it will very depending on the bread you use.

 

pumpkin-french-toast

 

I drizzled my pumpkin French toast with a vanilla maple sauce and it’s to die for. I mixed together vanilla protein powder, sugar free maple syrup and water.
