Peach Crisp {microwaved}

DSC_12672

Ingredients:

  • 1 peach cut into slices (it would probably be better peeled, but I’m way too lazy for that)
  • 1 tbsp margarine
  • sugar to taste (I like a teaspoon of agave or coconut sugar)
  • 4 tbsp oats
  • dash of cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger (this is for the oat mixture, but I like to season the peaches too)

Directions:

  • Melt butter/margarine in microwave for about 30 seconds.
  • Mix in sugar/agave.
  • Add in oats and spices.
  • Toss peaches in mixture.
  • Microwave for about 2 minutes.
  • Let sit for another few minutes to cool, and to crisp up a bit.

Pumpkin Spice Pancakes

pumpkinPancake2

 

  • 1 cup Biquick
  • 1 (flax) egg*
  • 1/2 cup (almond) milk
  • 1/4 cup pumpkin puree (next time I’d use more)
  • 1/3 cup apple sauce
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice (or a dash of cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger)
  • 1 scoop (raw warrior plain) protein powder

Mix all ingredients together. Add a little more pumpkin or apple sauce if it’s not moist enough. Scoop scant 1/4 cup of batter onto hot greased griddle. Cook for a few minutes on each side until golden brown.

(*To make 1 flax egg, mix 1 tablespoon ground flax seed meal and 3 tablespoons water, then refrigerate for a few minutes while preparing the rest of the recipe. You could also use another egg replacer.)

I thought these were perfect without any agave, but a real maple syrup (not that Aunt Jemima crap) would probably add a nice flavor to it.

Erica House
She’s my latest girl crush. She turned her life around and got super healthy. I love her health tips, and my favorite part is how candid she is. Just reading about her training for her first marathon makes me exhausted. Check out this hilarious post about some bizarre stories from her life.

Young House Love
I think everyone who has ever used the Internet loves this blog, and I am no exception. Something about the way they make things look so darn pretty just lures you in. It’s hard to pick just one post that I love, since most are so helpful and creative, but here’s an awesome one about their DIY wedding.

Veronika’s Blushing
I think I found this blog first through a makeup tutorial, but now I check it daily for updates. I love Veronika’s fashion advice, and it’s fun to read her posts about her new baby girl, Harper. I love her outfits in this post.

Purely Twins
They have great workouts and recipes. Check out these amazing super soft chocolate chip cookies.

Chocolate Covered Katie
I don’t religiously check this blog everyday, but it seems like every other day I stumble upon a recipe from Chocolate Covered Katie. I love her (mostly healthy) recipes, and they’re usually easily adaptable. I’m testing out these No-Bake Pumpkin Oatmeal Cookies later today!

 Are there any awesome blogs that you check daily?
