Snickerdoodle-Like Cinnamon And White Chocolate Chip Cookies
These are hands down the best cookies you’ll ever eat in your life!!! If a cinnamon roll and white chocolate chip cookie had a baby, this cookie would be that delicious little offspring. The original recipe is posted on Picky Palate, but this one uses a different type of pudding in the recipe. My mom made this tasty substitution and took these cookies from a 9 to a 10! Also, if you aren’t familiar with cinnamon chips (I hadn’t even heard of them before this recipe), don’t be scared to try them! They are like tiny meltable cinnamon rolls and are amazing! They can be hard to find, so if you can’t find them in your grocery store, you can get them off of Amazon. I like the Hershey’s brand.

Ingredients:
1 stick unsalted butter, softened
1/2 c granulated sugar
1/2 c packed brown sugar
1 large egg
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/4 c all purpose flour
3 tablespoons instant cheesecake pudding mix
1/2 tsp kosher salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1 c cinnamon chips
1 cup white chocolate chips

1. Preheat oven to 350 F and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.

2. In a stand mixer, cream your butter and sugars until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Add egg and vanilla beating to combine. Slowly add your flour, pudding mix, salt, baking soda, and cinnamon. Add chips and mix until combined.

3. Using a medium cookie scoop, place dough onto prepared baking sheet, about 1 inch apart from each other. Bake for 10-12 minutes, until baked through. Remove from oven and let cool on baking sheet for 10 minutes before transferring to cooling rack. Soooo good!

Blueberry Banana Bread Made With Whole Wheat Flour

Blueberry Banana Bread Made With Whole Wheat Flour

My son is a year and a half and I’m always trying to make sure the food he eats is nutrient rich and good for him. He loves banana bread, so I decided to try and make it a little healthier for him and use whole grains, add antioxidant rich blueberries to it, and cut down on the sugar. This bread is perfect to take to a brunch or just to keep around the house for your family to eat. I keep mine covered in cling wrap in the bread pan I baked it in for up to a week in the fridge, and reheat a slice at a time whenever my son is ready to eat it.

Ingredients:
3 bananas
3/4-1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries
2 tablespoons of honey
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 egg
1/2 stick melted butter
1/2 cup sugar
1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1 teaspoon baking soda

1. Using a hand mixer on low mix together melted butter, egg, bananas, vanilla, honey, and sugar.

2. Once blended add dry ingredients and blend again using hand mixer.

3. Using a spoon or spatula add 3/4-1 cup of blueberries (depending on how berrilicious you like your bread). Be careful not to break open the blueberries or crush then. It should only take you 3-4 stirs to incorporate them into batter.

4. Pour batter into bread pan that has been sprayed with your favorite non-stick cooking spray. Bake at 350F for one hour.
