Thick & Chewy White Chocolate Cherry Macadamia Nut Oatmeal Cookies {made with coconut oil}

Super chewy White Chocolate Cherry Macadamia Nut Oatmeal Cookies. These cookies are made with coconut oil and whole wheat flour for a hearty cookie that everyone will love!

I’ve always believed that doing little things is what really matters in a relationship. You always look back and appreciate those moments.

Oh you know, like those times when your boyfriend opened the car door for you. Or when he wrapped you in his jacket because you were freezing. The moments when he gave you a kiss on the forehead when you were down. When he made you dinner because you were too busy to cook for yourself. When he showed up with flowers just because. All of the little things add up. To me, they matter.

Okayyyyyy it’s true, I’m a romantic at heart; I always have been. And the best way I know how to show I care is by baking. I’ve found that a way to a man’s heart is with cookies. Because let’s face it: no one can resist a freshly baked cookie. Especially my cookies.

This holiday season I’ve been baking more cookies then I know what to do with. Too many to eat, too many to give away. I wish you guys could come over and eat cookies with me. And drink wine. Because I like wine. A LOT.

But seriously, I need to be put on a baking restriction. I’m considering locking my mixing bowls and flour in a closet until January.

Cooooooooooooookiessssss. I feel like I really owe you them; it’s been far too long.

Cookies are a big deal to me. They’re here to bring you joy.

And these particular ones? OMG OMG OMG.

Whole Wheat Coconut Banana Waffles with chocolate chips & roasted almonds

Monday’s here! Don’t cry… I made you waffles.

Man, I love waffles. They remind me of when I used to go to the diner with my Dad; I always ordered the giant, crispy Belgian waffle with strawberries. Mmmmmm.

I’ve been hoping that waffles make an epic comeback for years. Instead I’ve watched cookies-stuffed-in-cookies, cupcakes, mini pies, and baked donuts take over. So I need you to get on the waffle train with me. If you need convincing, these waffles should do the trick.

Dark Chocolate Covered Coconut Almond Granola Bars

I bet you’re hungry. I mean, it’s been a week since I’ve given you a recipe!

I’m not back from vacation just yet so I’m going to keep this short and sweet; I have to enjoy my last day in the sunshine!

Before I go, we must discuss these granola bars. They’re simple, delicious, and full of good-for-you ingredients and healthy fats to keep you satisfied. Plus they are incredibly easy to make!

First we toast the coconut, oats, and almonds in the oven.

Then simply mix honey, almond butter, a little coconut oil, vanilla and cinnamon in a saucepan to heat thoroughly. The wet ingredients are then added to the dry mixture and then tossed to combine. Easy!
