Old Fashioned Southern Banana Bread Recipe



Going to Grandma’s house, was always such a treat, I mean really, who doesn’t love the fresh smell of warm banana bread. My grandmother, was born and raised in southern Oklahoma, Hugo, matter of fact. I do not know where she learned to cook, but believe me, her cooking was the best. She was the type of grandma that when I asked her, how she made this or that, she would simply smile and say, “just add a little of this, and a pinch of that!”

My grandmother was a cook most of her life while raising 6 children mostly on her own. She worked for the state school, and I could just imagine all the smiles she brought to those children’s faces. I was fortunate one day, for my grandmother to share her recipe of her banana bread with me. Her recipe is so unique in fact, that you can add some bananas to it, or a can of pumpkin, or applesauce, with just a few minor seasoning adjustments. On top of all this, you don’t need separate bowls to mix the dry, and wet, ingredients. Just one bowl is all you need. If you like soft moist banana bread with a lightly crunchy outer crust, then you’ve come to the right place.

Below is a link to my Etsy Shop where you will find this digital download. Its not that expensive and well worth it especially when you can bake different types of breads with this one single recipe.

I hope you enjoy~

Homemade Energy Bars Great for Hikers



It’s getting to be that time of year when hiking can be much more enjoyable with cooler weather. Fall is just around the corner and soon we will be experiencing the fabulous color changes of the trees leaves to pretty oranges and reds. I love to hike this time of year and to keep it more enjoyable what better way than to bring along some fabulous treats especially those that can provide you with more energy to keep you going.

These homemade energy bars are a favorite of mine because you can make them yourself and they keep fresh in zip lock bags. The key ingredients are peanut butter, rice crispies, oats, coconut, peanuts, marshmallows, and raisins. How could you possibly go wrong with all that?

I have included a link to my Etsy shop for the recipe. It is a digital download. The price for it is low, and well worth it.

Thanks for stopping by,

Keto Pepperoni Pizza Bites



Now, if you’re looking for something different to bake, and you love pepperoni pizza, than these will surely be a hit! These are delicious and make for a perfect snack in between meals. I made these for the first time last week and they were amazing. I snuck two in my husbands lunch bag, and at lunch he called me, wondering where those delicious pepperoni bites came from! Needless to say, my husband has requested that I make some more.

Here is the recipe:

Prep time: 10 minutes

cook time: 20 minutes

total time 30 minutes

Ingredients:

2 cups chopped or sliced pepperoni

4 ounces of cream cheese softened

1/3 cup coconut flour

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1 teaspoon minced garlic

1 teaspoon Italian seasoning

3 large beaten eggs

1 1/4 cups shredded mozzarella (I used pepper jack cheese)

Instructions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

Combine cream cheese, pepperoni, shredded cheese and eggs until completely combined.

The start of the mixing up!

Add in remaining ingredients until well combined and chill 10 minutes allowing the flour time to absorb the moisture. *If after 10 minutes their is still a lot of moisture, chill another 10 minutes.

After sitting in the fridge for 10 minutes!

drop onto a greased baking sheet with a teaspoon

bake 18-20 minutes until golden brown.

In the oven baking!

After these cool, I like to place into a zip lock bag and store in refrigerator.

Finished product!

Garnish with marinara sauce if you’d like!
