Baked Banana Bread Oatmeal (Healthy!)

Here’s another one of Chocolate Covered Katie‘s scrumptious (and healthy!) recipes: banana bread baked oatmeal, or “boatmeal” as she calls it. I found Katie’s blog over the summer and made about all of her recipes! She actually inspired me to try baking healthy desserts, but I have to admit that they just don’t taste the same!

Fluffy Chocolate Chip Pancakes


School’s out!! It’s time to celebrate the first day of summer with a delicious breakfast feast! I made a about a billion of these mouthwatering, fluffy pancakes this morning, such a great start to many more relaxing mornings to come! Although these pancakes were devoured within minutes, I always like to  freeze leftovers (if there are any left!) to save a little summer sunshine for another morning. Happy summer and celebrate with this amazing breakfast! You can make these pancakes your own: add blueberries, chocolate chips, or keep them a traditional old-fashioned stack. Enjoy!
