recipe: oatmeal fruit tart

unless you’re using oatmeal to bake, most of the time oatmeal looks like porridge. even if you add something sweet (i.e. fruit and honey) or savory (i.e. crab or veggies), it still looks soupy yet comforting, of course. but that doesn’t mean you can’t dress it up a little!

processed gluten free vegan snack: Van’s Multigrain Crackers

from the same brand that brought k her love of waffles, is Van’s Gluten Free Multigrain Crackers. it has a crispy texture and nice flavor. like most snacks it is a little saltier than i would like for myself and even more so to give to a toddler so i lightly wipe off the top and bottom of each cracker to remove some of the salt and then it’s perfect!

YUM! Continue reading apple banana pumpkin bread

apple banana pumpkin pie

the first time i made pumpkin pie, i didn’t know if i could eat pumpkin pie again – knowing the ingredients and amount made me realize why pumpkin pie is so delicious. while i wanted k to experience a delicious dessert, i wasn’t ready for her to take in all the sugar and fat. so i searched online and found a recipe for the filling and a recipe for pie crust that sounded healthier and had very few ingredients given the limited foods that k has tried so far. –> recipe on Palatable Palette i was excited to try this recipe to see … Continue reading apple banana pumpkin pie
