1075. Banana Oat Cookies (2 Ingredients!)

The end. No, really. Mash banana, stir in some oats, and bake. There you have a perfectly legitimate, diet-friendly chewy cookie good for breakfast or snacks on the go. And what’s even better is the option to keep it plain, or go crazy with add-ins such as chocolate chips, nuts, dried fruit (raisins?), or nuts.   Continue reading “1075.

1063. Nice Cream Breakfast Bowl

Previously on MCW we’ve had a super food smoothie bowl, and an instant fruity vegan ice cream fit for breakfast. This breakfast bowl is a little bit of both.

I love my trusty granola recipe and have made it countless times. This is the simplified and stripped-down version which also lends itself to endless varieties. The star of the show are the pumpkin seeds, but there are also flax seeds in there and feel free to add/substitute for sesame and sunflower seeds as well. Continue reading “891.

885. Pitaya Smoothie Bowl


Smoothie bowls have been all the rage in culinary 2015. It is exactly what the name entails: a smoothie poured in a bowl. The difference is that in a regular smoothie you blend all the fixings (seeds, other fruit, etc) in and slurp the lot. Smoothie bowls allow you to see your toppings and eat them like soup in a bowl.
