Cinnamon Raisin Breakfast Cookies

I found this recipe on Pinterest, but changed it slightly.  These are quite tasty, considering they have no sugar, flour, egg, etc.  They are easy, and all natural!  Goes great with a cup of coffee. 


3 Mashed overripe bananas
1/3 Cup applesauce (unsweetened)
2 Cups rolled oats
1/4 Cup almond milk
1/2 Cup raisins
1/4 Cup chopped walnuts
1 Tsp vanilla
1 Tsp cinnamon


Preheat oven to 350.  Grease cookie sheet and add spoonfuls of mixture, spacing 1/2" apart.  Bake for 15-20 minutes.

World's Best Chocolate Cake

This is seriously one of the best tasting chocolate cake recipe's I've ever had.  My mom always made this and we loved it.  It is different - not your typical chocolate cake.  It is rich, thick, and served cold/room temperature (needs to be stored in the fridge because of the buttermilk in it).

I just made this and tried using lowfat buttermilk, light butter, and splenda.  It is still good, but not quite the same.  I think some recipes just need to be bad in order to be oh, so good!

Preheat oven to 350.


2 sticks butter
1 Cup water
4 Tbsp cocoa;

Melt above and pour over:

2 C flour
1 Tsp baking soda
1 Tsp cinnamon
1/2 Tsp salt
2 C sugar


1/2 C Buttermilk
1 Tsp vanilla
2 Eggs, beaten lightly

Mix all above ingredients and pour into a greased 9x13" pan.  Bake for 30 minutes.  Let cool.


1 stick butter
4 Tbsp cocoa
6 Tbsp buttermilk
1 Tsp vanilla
1 box powdered sugar.

Boil butter, cocoa, buttermilk and vanilla, and pour over 1 box of powdered sugar.  Wait for cake to cool and spread.  Chill cake and serve.
