    Healthy Homemade Vanilla Almond Granola

    I have always wanted to make homemade granola – and I honestly have no idea why I never actually tried previously. Maybe because granola recipes often have a TON of butter in them. Or a TON of sugar. Or because I never thought I would actually eat as much granola as I would be making in a whole batch… or I was worried that I WOULD eat the entire batch. Regardless, moral of the story is that I am a granola nube. But through a little recipe testing, I have come to realize that homemade granola is not something to be afraid of! This Healthy Homemade Vanilla Almond Granola proves…

    Healthy Banana Bran Muffins

    Is it weird that I love bran cereal? I always have. Sure – some people think it tastes like cardboard. But I LOVE it! With a little almond milk – yum! So what about Bran muffins? Also delish. BUT not all bran muffins are created equal. Some are packed with sugar but disguised as a healthy option. Others are low fat and low sugar, but taste like… cardboard. Finding a balance between the healthy and unhealthy, full flavor and no flavor – that is the key! When I was a kid (yes I was the weirdo who loved bran muffins as a kid), I used to always make the recipe…
