Dark Chocolate Raspberry Oatmeal Banana Bread (Gluten & Dairy Free)

If you’re like me, you’ve got spotty black bananas hanging in the kitchen and an empty flour container in your pantry! Hmm….MUST make banana bread to use up those bananas, but don’t really want to run to the store to get flour. What’s a girl to do? Make her own oat flour! I’ve always got loads of oats on hand, thanks to Costco! This recipe is amazing, there is NO oil, no gluten or dairy, and it uses only oat flour, which you can blend up yourself! Its very easy to make, well, as long as you have a food processor or blender. Otherwise, you’ll find yourself making that trip to the store to hunt down some oat flour! LOL. I’m sure you could sub it out for regular gluten free flour and it would turn out fine, but I kind of like the extra oat texture. It makes me feel like I’m eating a little healthier too. I love banana bread, and I love that there are so many variations of it! This is a great example…. the combo of dark chocolate and raspberries is delicious, and mix that with the oatty texture and the banana bread flavor and well…..we’ve got a winner here! I dug into it while it was still warm, and it was melt in your mouth good…..so good that you just want to eat more or it, so just a warning, it will test your self control! Hope you’ll give this one a try. Enjoy 馃檪

Oatmeal Raisin Cookies (Gluten & Dairy Free)

Who doesn’t love a nice chewy oatmeal raisin cookie?! (Well, other than MY husband of course! LOL) I definitely do! And I always think of Subway’s cause they’re just so stinking good! So I set out to make my own, because obviously I can’t have theirs! These are a little thicker (although you can squish them down a little more to get them flatter before you bake) but they have the same taste, texture and chewiness! YUM! I’m glad that it only made 18 cookies because that was more than enough for me! Freezing is always a great option too! 馃檪聽 These stayed nice and moist and chewy for days too! I made them last Friday and they’re still amazing on Wednesday! It’s been awhile since I’ve posted, or even had time to cook or bake, but now that things aren’t quite so crazy, I plan on trying out some great new recipes! Tomorrow is hubs b-day so tonight I’m cooking up a feast, so stay tuned for some super yummy dinner recipes coming soon! In the meantime, get in the kitchen already and make some cookies! LOL聽 Enjoy 馃檪

Oatmeal Crumble Fruit Tarts (Gluten & Dairy Free)

Oh no! Company’s coming for dinner and i forgot to make a dessert! Sound familiar?! (Maybe it’s just me!? LOL) This is my go-to recipe for this little problem. They are super quick and easy to make and you can change out the pie filling each time so its different, cause heaven forbid we have the same dessert over and over again right!?聽 Each and every kind i make are all soooo stinking tasty, and both gluten AND dairy free, wohoo!! I’ve finally gotten around to actually getting this onto paper cause before I’d just kinda throw it together from an idea in my mind…but these are tooo good to not share! And the best part is you can pretty much use any filing you want. You can use canned pie filling, canned fruit if you want to cut down on the sugar, or make your own fruit filling using fresh fruit! This recipe was inspired by my 5-Fruit Oatmeal Crumb Pie, so if you need a big pie or tart, I hope you try that one out! You could even use the filling fro my French Apple Pie instead too. Everything, especially with fruit, seems to taste better with the oatmeal crust! And as usual, I’m running late so this is gonna be the shortest post ever. I hope you give these a try… but don’t say i didn’t warn ya; these are addicting! Like seriously if there’s leftovers i eat it cold for breakfast kind of addicting! Spoken like a true foodie there huh?! LOL Enjoy 馃檪

Almond Joy Oatmeal (Gluten-free & Dairy-free)

So apparently I have to resort to making oatmeal in the microwave to get my cooking fix……..which this hardly qualifies, but it will have to do. All of my dishes are in boxes and my house is a huge mess under construction……and my pantry is in boxes too! I wanted to try something a little different for breakfast this morning though…and I LOVE almond joy anything so I figured why not try it with oatmeal! Its easy and quick to make…..although cooking in a paper bowl kinda threw me off! Took me 2 takes but finally got it!聽 Its super yummy! I added sugar to mine cause i have such a sweet tooth! Don’t think my stomach liked the almonds though….Im a week off on my acupuncture so I’ve been a little off this week! Hopefully I’ll get that and my kitchen back in order and be cooking again soon! In the meantime, I’ll have to let finding new recipes be enough! The drywall will be up tonight in the kitchen, and the floor goes in this weekend! Hopefully I’ll have cabinets up next week……which means a working kitchen again soon!! So bear with me…..I’ll be back full-time soon enough!! Enjoy! 馃檪

5-Fruit Pie with Oatmeal Crumble Crust (Gluten & Dairy Free!!)

Oh how I love pie! And oh….what a pain it is to make pie crust, especially gluten free pie crust! I used to cheat before I was gluten-free and just use the frozen pre-made pie crusts, but now….. i don’t have that option. So….whats a girl to do?! Well, I’ve got the solution right here, and it’s pretty darn tasty, not to mention easy! This is the best pie….so yummy and fruity, and you can’t feel too guilty cause not only is it full of oats, its got 5 kinds of fruit!!
