My homemade healthy, whole wheat, apple cinnamon walnut pancakes!

  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 green apple
  • 1 cup almond milk
  • 3 egg whites
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 tsp oil
  • walnuts!

in a small bowl, mix dry ingredients (flour, powder, cinnamon, salt, nuts.

use a cheese grater to grate the apple, throw into a big bowl.

Add oil, eggs, vanilla and milk to the grated apple and whisk until smooth.

add in dry ingredients, and mix ONLY UNTIL THERE ARE NO DRY SPOTS. DO NOT OVER MIX.


I use a big serving spoon, but you can use whatever you want for whatever side pancakes you want, but pour onto a pan at a medium heat. (I have this awesome caphalon pan, so I don’t need spray/butter.

Cook until light golden brown on both sides!

and voila! you get these awesome, instagrammed pancakes!

Serve with syrup and walnuts! on top!

Variations:

  • for more of an apple “fritter” type pancake, use 1/2 cup of flour and add another grated apple.
  • for less fluffly pancakes, use 1/2 cup whole wheat flour, 1/2 cup regular flour.

I’m  not exactly sure of the calories and what not, because I just threw it together, but I can’t imagine there being a lot….

Banana Ice Cream

Ingredients;

  • Bananas
  • Mix-ins of your choice (ie. peanut butter, chocolate chips, strawberries, berries, the possibilities are endless!!)

Directions: 

  • Pick a couple of ripe bananas. They should be sweet and soft but not too mushy.
  • Peel the bananas.
  • Cut them into coins.
  • Freeze the banana pieces for at least an hour or two.
  • Frozen hard!
  • Put the pieces into a food processor or blender.
  • Blend on high. Initially they will look crumbly and piecemeal.
  • The mixture will probably get stuck a lot. Keep scraping down the bowl.
  • Suddenly, as you keep blending, you will see a change.
  • The bananas turn creamy!
  • Now is the time to add a scoop of peanut butter or anything else you care to mix in.
  • The ice cream will be the texture of soft-serve, but if you freeze again in an airtight container, it will get harder and more like regular ice cream.

You definitely have to scrape it down a few times. But it comes out great in the enddd:) I literally JUST made this. its delicious.

DELISH!!

OMG yum!

Celebrity Chef Crush.. Hahah Michael Symon. He has the most infection laugh, and I think he’s gorgeous! (minus the facial hair phase) He makes amazing food!

Apple-Apple pie.

Mix:
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup cornstarch
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 baking powder
in a bowl.
Add:
  • 1 stick of butter, and mix with your hands until crumbly. Don’t overmix.
Add:
  • 1 egg mix with hands and mold into a ball.
  • Put aside in the fridge.
Next, get ready:
  • 8 medium apples
  • sugar
  • flour
  • cinnamon

Now,

  • cut off the tops of each apple (just about to the bottom of the stem)
  • peel the cut off top, dice what good apple pieces you can get from it, and place in a large bowl.
  • Next, (now this is tricky, I had a kind of curved knife) but take a small paring knife and cut out the inside of the apple, and use a spoon to hollow it out.
  • dice up removed apple.
  • Arrange hollowed apples on a baking sheet lined with PARCHMENT PAPER.

For every apple, (I used 8) you need to add:

  • 1 tbsp of sugar
  • 1/2 tbsp flour
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon

to the diced apples.

So, in this case, you need 8 tbsp sugar, 4 tbsp flour, and 2 tsp cinnamon.

  • Mix well, until all apple pieces are coated.
  • Evenly distribute mixture into each hollowed apple.

Take the dough out of the fridge.

  • lay out a sheet of wax paper on your counter
  • Rub flour on a rolling pin
  • roll out the ball of pie dough on the wax paper until a little bigger than 1/8 of an inch.

For this part, depending on the size of the top of your apple, you can use a cookie cutter, glass, whatever, just make sure the cookie cutter or glass is wider than the top of the apple.

  • cut out 8 circles from the dough.
 (you make have to only do a few cut-outs, and then re-roll the remaining dough up in a ball and roll it out again.)
  • gently peel the cut-out circles off the parchment paper
(I find it easier to just lift that part of the parchment paper up, and kind of let the cut out circle fall off into your hand).
  • place the cut outs on top of the apples.
  • bake for about 35 minutes! (or until you can easily poke the side of the apple with a toothpick.

Herby Roasted Chicken & Sweet Potato Skins.

I made this for dinner tonight! DELICIOUS! 

Serves 4.

Potatoes

  • I used 4 ridiculously large sweet potatoes, and it made more than enough, so 4 average sized sweet potatoes is fine.
  • about 1 cup mozzarella (I used part skim)
  • sea salt
  • pepper
  • sour cream
  • 2 tbsp butter or margarine
  • chives

Cut in half and arrange on a cookie sheet (I line with tinfoil because it’s less clean-up)… (also, I had to cut mine in 4ths because they were so big haha)

For the chicken, I used:

  • 2 large breasts
  • 3 thighs
  • 2-3 tbsp butter, depending on how big your chicken pieces are
  • 1/2 tsp sage (ground or dried, I used ground because… that’s what I had)
  • 2 cloves of garlic, crushed
  • dried rosemary
  • Preheat oven to 375.
  • Arrange chicken in a baking dish.
  • In a small microwaveable bowl, melt butter or margarine, but not until clear, just until smooth.
  • Add sage and garlic to butter and stir well.
  • Using preferably a pastry brush (you can use a spoon), spread buttery mix on chicken pieces.

You can put the chicken and the potatoes in the oven at the same. Set your timer for 40 minutes or until you can easily stick a fork in the potatoes.

  • While the potatoes are in the oven, grate mozzarella (if you bought a block)
  • Chop up chives.

When the potatoes are fork-tender, remove them from the oven, and let them cool until you can handle touching them.

  • Using a spoon, scoop out the insides of each sweet potato and place the scooped parts in a large bowl.

  • For extra flavor, sprinkle some sea salt on the gutted potatoes
  • Add about 1/2 cup sour cream and the butter to the potato guts in the large bowl & MASH EM UP!
  • add salt and pepper to taste, mix in.
  • Scoop the mash into the potato skins.
  • Top with grated cheese and chives.
  • Put back into the oven

*** At this point, check to make sure your chicken is done. If you have no experience “eye-balling” it, just cut into the pieces and see if it’s still pink.

If it’s done, take it out and let it cool while the cheese melts on the sweet potatoes.

  • Remove once the cheese is melted!
  • serve! I served with broccoli.

Voila!
