pumpkin chocolate chip cookies

So it has been a really long time since I’ve posted anything here, but we tried this recipe out tonight and it was SO good and SO easy that I wanted to share. It got two big thumbs up from the kids!

Ingredients:
1 box spice cake mix
1 can pure pumpkin
1/2 bag mini chocolate chips (12 oz. bag)

Directions:
In a medium size bowl, stir spice cake mix and can of pumpkin together until well mixed. If it is too thick to mix well, you can add just a little splash of milk to help, but it should stay pretty thick. Dump in about half a bag of mini chocolate chips and stir in (half a bag really is enough). Scoop into spoon-size balls onto cookie sheet and bake at 350 degrees for about 10 minutes.

You can also easily make these into muffins, just bake a little bit longer.

Post image for Pretzels with Nutella and Raisins

The kids and I were eating sandwiches and pretzels for lunch today and I was craving something sweet. I pulled out some raisins, and then suddenly decided some Nutella sounded good.  I wasn’t sure what I wanted to eat it on, but I wanted it. Moments after, this tasty snack was born.  It’s a super easy, semi-healthy snack that the kids can even make for themselves.

Ingredients:
Mini pretzels
Nutella
Raisins

Directions:
Dip the edge of a mini pretzel into the Nutella (a little goes a long way), then dip into a pile of raisins so that 3-4 raisins stick to the Nutella.  Put in your mouth and enjoy the chocolaty, salty, sweet goodness!

Blueberry Banana Bread

July 23, 2010

This is basically my old standby banana bread recipe with blueberries added in, however I did make a couple of modifications.  We’ve been making efforts towards healthier eating (not that banana bread is exactly healthy), so I’ve been trying to incorporate whole wheat flour into some of my recipes.  In this one I substituted 1 [...]

Banana Bread

February 24, 2009

Bananas are a big favorite in my house (although sadly my baby girl can no longer have them) so we usually have a few laying around.  The only problem is, I like to eat the bananas when they are still just a tiny bit green.  That means I pretty much have a one day window [...]
