Glazed Lemon Scones

I had some leftover heavy cream and my go-to way to use it up is to make scones. I also had a lemon and thought it would be perfect to whip up a batch of glazed lemon scones. It’s been a bit of challenge to use up everything I have in my house before going shopping – but it’s good to reduce waste.

These scones were amazing – I had to fight my family off to get a picture of them before they were gone. The lemon was perfect and the scones were flaky and buttery. My glaze was a little thin and next time I make it, I’ll go thicker.

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chunk Scones

It’s been awhile since I made scones and I was in the mood to do some baking the other night. I found a recipe for peanut butter scones and luckily I had everything in my pantry to make them. I added the chocolate chunks for added treat.

They were really good, packed full of peanut butter. I enjoyed them slightly warmed. The chocolate chunks were slightly melted and the scones were soft and delicious.

Bacon Cheese Cornbread Muffins

I’m  always looking for grab and go breakfast options for my kids and these cornbread muffins are perfect for that. It’s basically breakfast in your hand. During the week, it’s a struggle to get my kids something delicious and nutritious for breakfast with the hustle and bustle of getting them off to school.

These muffins are delicious! I used turkey bacon, but you could easily swap it with sausage or ham chunks. Warm them up slightly in the microwave with a dab of butter and you’re ready to start your day!

Honey Cinnamon Zucchini Bread

My kids love zucchini bread and I’m always trying different recipes. They both really enjoyed this recipe. It’s a very moist bread that has deep flavors of olive oil, honey and brown sugar. This recipe is great to freeze as well. I sliced it, wrapped it in plastic wrap and then placed it in the freezer.

We all enjoyed it different ways. My kids ate it just the way it is. I warmed a slice and added a slice of butter and let it melt. My husband slathered it with cream cheese.

Peanut Butter Scones

I was in the mood to do some baking this past weekend and whipped together a batch of peanut butter scones. This recipe is slightly different from some of the other recipes I’ve used for scones, but it was just as good!

The texture of these scones are much more moist than other scones I’ve made. It’s almost like a combination of peanut butter cookie and scone. I like to warm them in the microwave slightly and spread a smear of extra peanut butter on them. I might try add peanut butter chips to the batter next time – for a little more of a decadent treat!

Chocolate Almond Flour Waffles

I was looking for an alternate to traditional waffles and came across this recipe for chocolate waffles using almond flour. I was really intrigued by them and like that they are high in protein and healthy fat…plus dairy free! I made a batch for my kids to sample and they both loved them. I was surprised since they have been quite picky lately, but they’re a delicious treat.

I’m planning to experiment more with almond flour as I’m looking at ways to reduce using traditional all-purpose flour in my recipes. Almond flour is blanched (skins removed) or unblanched almonds that are ground into a fine flour-like product. When using it in baked goods, it’s a 1-to-1 replacement for regular flour. Since it’s higher in fat, you won’t need as much butter or shortening that you would use in a traditional recipe. The one thing that is needs is a binder, like eggs, because it lacks the binding property of gluten.

Ham and Cheese Scones

There’s just something about scones that I love. I don’t know if it’s the flaky, buttery dough or how versatile they are. I had leftover ham from Easter dinner and used it to make a batch of these scones. Everyone loved them and they were so easy to make. They were a little sweet with the addition of brown sugar, but savory as well!

They are perfect for breakfast, brunch, dinner – really anytime of the day! I served them with scrambled eggs and a green salad one night for dinner. My daughter finished the batch by eating them for breakfast. I’ll definitely be making these again!

Baked Blueberry Maple Oatmeal

I was excited to participate in this month’s Fantastical Food Fight because the theme was OATMEAL! I haven’t made oatmeal in a couple of months, but I use oats in a lot of recipes. I decided to give baked oatmeal a try. I found a recipe with blueberries and maple, which was perfect since I had a container of blueberries that needed to be used.

The recipe was easy to throw together and smelled amazing while it was baking. I had to patiently wait to let it cool before a scooped out a little bit to taste. It was packed full of blueberries and made for a great breakfast and dessert!

Be sure to check out the link below to see all this month’s oatmeal recipes! I’m excited to see what everyone made.
