Sweet Potato Waffles

At first, sweet potato toast was my obsession… now it’s sweet potato in waffle form! When I visited friends and family in Atlanta last month I ate at many burger joints. When ordering a burger, I would have to order it naked (no bun). After the second burger joint, ordering a burger with no bun got boring real fast and I ended up loading on fries because I was so hungry. 

But then I thought, why not combine fries into a bun that can be healthy, gluten-free, and fun?! And here we are ladies and gents… sweet potato waffles!

To be honest, I feel weird adding this recipe to the blog because it is just too easy to make. Made with only two ingredients, you literally can’t go wrong.

Everything Bagel & Lox Socca Pizza

Summertime = traveling so let me take you to southern France, the home of the socca bread. While strolling through the markets in France, you will find socca (healthier than pancakes) everywhere. Socca is made with 4 simple ingredients: chickpea flour, water, salt, and olive oil. As you can see, socca is free from gluten, dairy, and grain while being high in fiber and protein. 

Chickpea flour is simply grounded chickpeas and is minimally processed. You can purchase chickpea flour or make your own! If you are making your own chickpea flour, you can boost the nutritional value by using sprouted chickpeas! Like other beans and legumes, soaking and sprouting makes them easier to digest.

Chai Spiced Sweet Potato Chocolate Chip Muffins

Growing up as a kid, we didn’t eat sweet potatoes often. The few times we did, it was usually in the form of  sweet potato casseroles or sweet potato pie for Thanksgiving. Now that I’m older, I can’t get enough of them.

That’s why, regardless of the weather, I wanted to create a super cozy and comforting sweet potato muffin made with chocolate chips (because why not!?) and chai spice!

If you can’t tell from my Instagram, I use this chai spice seasoning on almost everything. Before diving into this muffin recipe, you should totally whip up this amazing chai spice seasoning if you haven’t done so already, then we can get to cooking!

Quinoa Breakfast Bowls 2 Ways

I will be honest and say that I was somewhat apprehensive about implementing quinoa in my breakfast dishes. I’m just so used to adding quinoa to my buddha bowls or as a dinner side. I never thought you could use it for sweet dishes but once I caved, I’ve never gone back.

Quinoa is an excellent versatile option for breakfast. You can make it sweet, like I have discovered, or you can keep it savory.

This recipe is fun and so easy to incorporate for your breakfast meal prep. You can simply cook up four servings, taking ½ cup from that to do whatever your heart's desire.

If you want to lean towards the savory side of the quinoa breakfast bowl then you can add roasted veggies, greens, a fried egg, half of an avocado, and possibly another protein source.

Fluffy Gluten-Free Pancakes

After seven months of testing out this recipe, I am finally here to say that this is my most favorite gluten-free pancake mix! It’s been a long road but so worth it! You’re probably wondering, why this long!?

Well, I didn’t want to compromise a pancake’s flavor, texture, and simplicity so I basically did everything against that for so long. You see, like the world’s view on nutrition in how it may seem complicated, overly expensive, and trendy, that was the viewpoint I was taking. Strip all that away, and now you’re left with a no-fail, go-to, gluten-free pancake recipe.
