I know I’ve been baking a lot. Perhaps too much. You’re probably waiting for some miraculously delicious salad with quinoa and some other hippie things, but today I couldn’t help but bring you a new cookie recipe because helloooo… it’s cookie season and I freaking love to bake them.

I know that most of time we’re all about healthy goodies but there’s no holding back when it comes to cookies this time of year.

Last night I had a wonderful, healthy dinner including a turkey patty, brussels sprouts and a nice salad. I had to save room for a few of these freaking awessome chewy, oatmeal carrot cake cookies – one of my new favorites.

A few readers have emailed me requesting a recipe for a healthy carrot cake. I’m sure I’ll get to that eventually, but in the meantime I suggest whipping up a batch of these little bites. They’re bursting with oatmeal, pecans, coconut and raisins then topped with a light cinnamon glaze. Together they combine in a cookie that tastes just like a slice of carrot cake. And dare I say that you could even enjoy them for breakfast?!

Sometimes I go on a french fry craze. Like get out of my way, I’m going to eat that entire plate of fries because I haven’t had them in nearly a month, and they look pretty dang terrific.

Welcome to the world of a girl who is in love with food.

Tony and I drove from Minneapolis to Chicago yesterday. The last time I made the trip it was incredibly boring because it was the middle of winter and there wasn’t anything but dirty white snow and signs about cheese. This time was much better; the leaves of the trees were just beginning to change and Tony drove the entire way so I was able to start a new book which I’m completely LOVING.

I’ve been super lazy about packing my lunches lately. Probably because they have a Chipotle type line at the work where I basically get a chicken taco salad every single day. ALRIGHT FINE, I’ll admit that I totally get the salad because it comes with crunchy, salty tortilla chips and loads of guac.

I hope your weekend was TOPS!

I spent the weekend in solitude. And honestly, it was so refreshing. I cleaned out my closet, worked out, bought new running shoes, worked on blogging techy stuff, and made a few recipes. I also watched an episode of The Leftovers, a new show on HBO. I’m kinda put off by it, but also a little intrigued. Have you seen it?

In other news, I’m a little annoyed with myself for not sharing this strawberry protein shake recipe sooner, but here it is now! I promise that you are going to love it.

Chocolate zucchini muffins get a healthy makeover in partnership with Blue Diamond Almond Breeze! Made with whole wheat flour and no butter or refined sugars (besides chocolate chips). You’re going to love these perfectly moist, insanely delicious muffins!

Zucchini season is HERE because my Pinterest feed told me so. I even made a board devoted to all things zucchini (shameless plug so you can follow me!).

If you’re thinking that you would never put zucchini in a baked good, it’s time to get out of your comfort zone because these muffins are MIND-BLOWING and full of chocolate love with zero zucchini taste.

I love when vegetables can taste like chocolate, don’t you?
