What is it about a warm buttered toast and a cup of coffee on a chilly morning that just gives ALL THE FEELZ? That’s what I’ve been doing for the past several days ever since making this delicious Paleo Apple Cinnamon Bread and it’s what’s been getting me out of bed when it’s usually too cold to.

This bread is just so yummy and I love that the apple flavor really shines through without it being overly sweet. It’s sweetened mostly with applesauce making it a healthy treat, unlike other similar breads I’ve tried which is overpowered by high amounts of sugar and doesn’t even taste like real apples at the end of it.

The applesauce not only gives the bread flavor, it also creates a delicious moistness (sorry if you hate that word) so it won’t dry out even if you decide to toast the slices like I’ve been doing. And the crunchy nut topping with that soft fluffy bread is just the most delectable texture combo. Best of all, the prep time is less than 5 minutes, so most of the work to make this recipe is done by the oven. It’s definitely my kind of recipe!

I guest posted this Paleo Apple Cinnamon Bread recipe on Lauren Geertsen’s blog, Empowered Sustenance, so go check it out and let me know what you think:

It’s finally getting chilly enough to put on a sweatshirt in the mornings and nights here in LA county, and that means it’s Fall in SoCal. And judging by how much you all LOVED my Pumpkin Spice Latte recipe, it looks like most of us are ready for all things pumpkin. I know I definitely am.

My next pumpkin recipe is this Blender Pumpkin Bread that I’m so excited to share. I first learned about blender breads on Pinterest and the concept was so simple and brilliant. All the batter ingredients get blended together and then all you do is pour it into a baking vessel to bake it. For someone who’s not a huge baker like myself, I loved this idea and have been experimenting in the kitchen ever since.

I was so excited when I first made this Blender Pumpkin Bread because the flavor was ON POINT. And the texture is so fluffy, and it is absolutely delicious slathered with copious amounts of butter or ghee.

I don’t usually love sugary treats, but this recipe isn’t too overly sweet and really holds up well stored in the fridge. I’ve been eating it for breakfast toasted, along with a cup a coffee and a side of eggs.

If you love pumpkin, I highly recommend you try out this Blender Pumpkin Bread. It’s incredibly easy to make, and you’ll love how much moist and flavorful it is!

Paleo Apple Bacon Muffins

These low carb and paleo Apple Bacon Muffins are so fluffy, moist, delicious, and they are a perfect make-ahead breakfast! 

Paleo Apple Bacon Muffins

Guys, these muffins! I got this idea after making my apple bacon pancakes, and how much I loved them. The two flavors go together so well and I just love that combination of sweet and savory.

While pancakes are amazing, I wanted something that I can make ahead of time since mornings are when I’m the most productive and I’d rather spend that time getting some work done than in the kitchen. Enter: these Paleo Apple Bacon Muffins!

These muffins can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for up to a week, and I’ve been just toasting them in the oven in the morning and eating them with eggs. SO delicious. They are even better with a slather of grass-fed butter on them, and it’s a great go-to snack as well.

This recipe makes 6 large muffins, but you can double the recipe for a standard 12-muffin pan. I actually highly recommend you do with these Paleo Apple Bacon Muffins because you won’t regret it if you do. There’s something so delightful when apple and bacon comes together, and I’m pretty sure we all need more of it in our lives… Right? Just go make these if you agree!
