Originally posted on Another Gluten-Free Millennial:

Donuts are probably the thing people with gluten-free intolerances miss the most. After much time experimenting, the best (and easiest) recipe for gluten-free donuts is finally found. It was pretty simple for me and this is all you need: 1 ¼ cups pancake mix 1/4 egg 2 tablespoons sugar 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon 1/3 cup water Supplies: Mixing bowl Spoon Deep frying pan Oil Stove Slotted spoon Paper towel Topping: 1/2 cup sugar 2 teaspoons cinnamon Paper lunch bag In a large bowl, mix together the pancake mix, water, egg and small amounts of sugar and cinnamon.

Easy 2 Ingredient Oatmeal Banana Cookies

Trying to lose weight is not a lot of fun, especially if you have a big weight loss goal like I do. However, through trial and error over the years, I have learned that depriving myself of everything I love will not work for the long term and can lead to a binge of all things brownie. I think in the maintenance phase, the 80/20 rule works well (80 percent healthy food for fuel and 20 percent food for comfort) and in the losing weight phase, I raise that number to 90/10 or even 95/5 (sorry). The best approach is finding healthy food that tastes like comfort food so that you can make smart choices even when you’re “cheating.” I personally have never met a cookie that I didn’t like, so I decided to find a way that I could eat a cookie every single day and still find success with losing weight. Lo and behold, I have done it and now I’d like to share my easy 2 ingredient…

Most of the store- made granola is usually high in sugar and contains unhealthy oils.The advantage of making your own granola is that you know exactly what’s in it and you can add you favourite ingredients. This granola is made with oats, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, flaxseeds and your favourite nuts and fruits. The granola is naturally sweetened with coconut flakes and  honey or maple syrup.  I usually make a large batch granola this to last throughout the week . This recipe yield a large batch of granola ( about 6 cups). Serve with yogurt  or nut milk and fresh fruit or berries. ? ?

This post may contain affiliate links, read more about what that means here. This is my go-to recipe for chocolate chip cookies. Growing up I wasn’t particularly drawn to the chocolate chip variety. I have a huge obsession with anything peanut butter, and still very much do! Hubbs on the other hand, lovessssss chocolate chip & so this recipe has become a major VIP in our house. I love warming the house up on a chilly day with the stove & these cookies. In the winter our neighbor does a lot of the snow removal in our driveway – so I always make sure to thank him the best way I know how. And that is either with these cookies, or my favorite banana bread recipe. Either way it’s a win for all!

Strawberry Protein Cheesecake

?? So, a few months back I posted my low fat protein pumpkin cheesecake recipe. I posted some recommendations of other flavors at the bottom of that recipe, but I still had people complaining that they don’t like pumpkin and don’t know how to modify for the recommended substitutions. So I decided to help out!! This is the exact same recipe I used a few months back, just modified without pumpkin purée.? I made a delicious strawberry cheesecake and it turned out fantastic!! I feel like I’m cheating on my diet, but I’m not! The best part of this cheesecake, aside from it being low calorie, low fat, and delicious — is that it is so versatile. You can make whatever flavor you fancy by trying out different yogurt and protein powder flavors. Seriously, get creative!!! ?? Ingredients: 16 ounces fat free cream cheese (room temperature works best) 2 individual package Dannon Light n Fit Greek Yogurt (I chose to use Strawberry Cheesecake flavor, but you can…
