Welcome to Friday, friends. You made it!
No more heaviness from me this week. I just want to celebrate some delicious eats.
It’s been a month since my last Lately: Kitchen Creations post, so that means a whole month of new recipe finds and kitchen experiments that I must share. As usual, there were a lot of favorites which will now become part of the regular rotation family.
Reeces Pumpkin Peanut Butter Cups from Chocolate Covered Katie
These little guys…… oh man. These may be the best little treat ever to grace my freezer. I may say that a lot, but this time guys…. really. I’m no stranger to freezer chocolate, but these are by far better than any of my own creations.
I didn’t think I’d end up taking pictures of them, so I didn’t really try to make them look nice (aka most of my “filling” ended up on top) but it really doesn’t matter because they taste the same and that taste is phenomenal. And they’re so easy – of course. The white you see on top is a mix of freezer condensation and some rock salt I sprinkled on for a little addition. Make these.
A peanut butter pumpkin rendition of these No bake Fudge Brownies from letsgetupandlive
Based on the amount of times you’ve seen me make these no bake fudge brownies, its no surprise they are a top favorite of mine. So I thought maybe it was time I expanded my horizons – just a titch – and do a little experimenting. I omitted some of the dates for 3 Tbsp pumpkin puree and added 1 tsp pumpkin spice to the base. Then, I swapped the chocolate chips in the ganache for – get ready for it – peanut butter chips! I know – crazy right!? And another 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice.
If you are feeling peanut butter, these were definite winners. I think I’m still partial to the triple chocolate goodness though.Pumpkin Peanut Butter Cups and Fudge? These and lots more recipes from the month to share.… Click To Tweet
Egg Bake Muffins
Why do I always think I’m not really an egg fan when obviously – based off every single time I have eggs for breakfast I love them – I am. And why did it take me so long to try the egg muffin thing? The idea never really appealed to me… #facepalm
These guys are SO easy and you honestly can put anything and everything into them without a recipe. Though, I hit up this recipe from kimscravings and this recipe from skinnytaste to get myself started. I’ve made a couple batches and they’ve stored so well in the freezer. My favorite were these sweet potato, spinach, cheddar guys. I still think this plate was my favorite breakfast of the month.
Ellie and I are both self professed lovers of scones. And cornbread. So this recipe goes without saying.
Its such a cool recipe. Gluten free and vegan. There is no milk, eggs or butter. Pumpkin, cornmeal and chickpea flour are the main stars – and somehow it totally works. If you are a grainy cornbread fan, you’d definitely like these.
These super fudgey Pumpkin Brownies from Veggiebalance
I was drawn to this recipe when I saw that the only ingredients were: pumpkin, eggs, honey and cocoa powder. Seriously. That’s it. Four ingredients! (five if you include the thrown in chocolate chips). That makes these guys not only gluten free, but totally grain and flour free. How cool is that!?
No doubt these guys come out suuuupper fudgy. And crazy light too! Like little fudgy air pillows. I topped mine with a mixture I threw together made of 1 tbsp honey + 2 tbsp peanut flour + 1 tbsp water and swirled it into the top for a little peanut butter glaze finish. It worked brilliantly!
Yessss. I had been eyeing this recipe for a long while, so was totally pumped when I found a 1/2 full bag of TVP hiding in the back of my cupboard. TVP is so ridiculously easy to work with. Its vegan, it lasts forever, and its really high in protein. I added sundried tomatoes and chopped red pepper to my batch to amp it up just a touch.
I’ve been throwing it onto mostly taco/burrito bowls with lots of cheeese. But my favorite use for it has been sloppy joe style. Cause’ I love me some sloppy sloppy joes.See what winning recipes I made this month. So much deliciousness to share! #recipeshare… Click To Tweet
