Chia pudding is one of those staple recipes in my Plantiful Kitchen. It can be used as a breakfast main dish, or garnish, it can be eaten as a healthy snack, and even disguised as a dessert. Part of what makes it such a versatile dish is that it starts out simple and can be dressed up so many ways. Continue reading “Simple Vanilla Chia Pudding”

Happy New Year! I have been taking a long break over the holidays, wanting to spend time with those that matter most over the holidays and catching up on some long needed rest.

Starting off, I wanted to share with you a few recipes to help you start your day off right.

It’s been a perfect time of year to do this—it’s been so hot, so the smoothies are refreshing. I have been using fresh greens and berries which are in abundance now—another bonus.

This weekend I woke up wanting something other than a smoothie and I was craving muffins. Inspired by the gorgeous sweet Ontario cherries I got at the farmers’ market, I created this protein rich, gluten-free, just sweet enough Cherry Cornbread Muffin. Continue reading “Cherry Cornbread Muffins”
I love those weekends when we have time to kick back as a family and have a proper relaxing Saturday morning. Without the hustle and bustle of getting everything ready I usually make pancakes, a household favourite. This recipe is gluten free, dairy free, egg free and full of chocolatey goodness. So much so, that I call them Brownie Pancakes. These clean pancakes, do take more than a few minutes to ‘whip together’, and may require you to explore new gluten-free flour options but isn’t it worth it to eat brownies for breakfast, guilt free?
