Mixed Fruit & Oat Bars {GF, Dairy-Free}

November 3, 2016
Mixed Fruit & Oat Bars {gf, dairy-free}| www.brighteyedbaker.com

S’mores milkshake, marshmallow-stuffed cookies, gluten-free, dairy-free, pretty much guilt-free oat bars. It’s a natural cycle, right? I’ve officially devoted myself to being sweets-free this month, so I figured the blog should reflect that a little bit. I also mayyyy be trying to avoid thinking about dessert since there’s two huge bags of leftover Halloween candy […]

Banana Oat Muffins - moist and light muffins that are GF & Dairy-Free | www.brighteyedbaker.com

I’m quite sure that no muffin withdrawals ever happen on this blog. If anything, I bake too many muffins, which is why I feel like I have to space them out with other recipes so things don’t get too predictable. But really, is there such a thing as too many muffins? Can you really get bored with one […]

Healthy Banana Coconut Chocolate Chunk Muffins {GF, Dairy-Free Option, No Added Sugar} - tender and chocolate-filled muffins that are naturally sweetened with roasted bananas and coconut flakes. | www.brighteyedbaker.com

There’s something about an uber-ripe batch of bananas that makes me become a banana hoarder. And if I go to the store and see a bunch covered in those tell-tale brown speckles, all plans are out the window because I’m making banana bread… or muffins, or coffeecake, or SOMETHING. What I’m not doing is passing them […]

October 5, 2012
Apple Cinnamon Raisin Muffins

Did you read today’s post title? Because I know it seems a bit obvious. I write about food. I take pictures of food. I’m pretty sure if you’re reading this you know that I like love food. But here’s the thing: some of my favorite foods aren’t 100% nutritious. Solution? I try to switch things up […]

You know those people who manage to do everything at whirlwind speed, leaving you staring agape as it takes you at least twice as long to do the same things? That’s not me. I’m the person staring, not the speedster, and sometimes I seriously wish I was the speedster. The problem is, I don’t know […]

I know there’re people out there cursing summer’s 100 degree temperatures right now (in certain areas), but I seriously love summer. I love the warm temperatures, when my body can finally relax after being on edge all winter long. I love that I can wake up in the morning and just throw on a shirt […]

Yep. I just posted Cinnamon Rolls and waxed on about their buttery, sugary perfection, and now I’m telling you to make Carrot Raisin Walnut Bran Muffins. This is intentional. Go ahead and indulge, and then switch to something healthy to feel good about yourself again (in an “I eat healthy” way, rather than an “I’m blissfully […]

 I don’t know about you, but I treat raspberries like gold. Those delicate little red berries are hard to come by, but they add such a sophisticated, unique touch to any dish with their bright color and sweet tang. The problem is that they sure aren’t cheap for that tiny little carton you can get […]

As much as I love muffins, scones, biscotti, breads, chocolate chip cookies, chocolate… (I could go on), I realize that often times they aren’t exactly considered health food. I don’t plan on giving any of these foods up, because I honestly believe that we should allow ourselves to indulge in treats – in moderation – […]

Thumbnail image for Confession #38: I feel REALLY guilty… Pecan and Date Bars {GF, Dairy-Free}

I’m feeling guilty because I’ve barely looked at my blog in two weeks let alone written a post or replied to any comments. It’s funny how a few months ago, I was just a girl who loved to bake in her spare time but never thought about everything that comes after baking – photographing, blogging, […]
