- Bailey Bakes‘ Sweet Potato Carrot Bread is an easy to make quick bread that is a nice addition to fall and holiday gatherings. The bread has shredded carrots, like a carrot cake, and a generous amount of shredded sweet potato. The sweet potato brings another layer of flavor to the bread that it might not get from carrots alone, and brown sugar and cinnamon tie all the flavors of the bread in nicely. The sweet bread could serve as dessert, with its sticky maple glaze drizzled over each slice, and it would be a welcome addition to a brunch table, too.
- You might not reach for bananas, peanut butter and bacon all at the same time in your kitchen, but when you think about it, it’s not a stretch to see how these ingredients could taste great together. And a batch of Banana Peanut Butter Bacon Cupcakes that Ring Finger Tan Line might be the perfect way to combine them. The salty sweet peanut butter frosting creates a bridge between the sweet banana cupcakes and the savory bacon topping. They’re addictive, so have some milk and a few friends on hand to help you eat them up.
- Another banana recipe comes in breakfast form. This Banana Nutella Granola from Sally’s Baking Addiction uses mashed banana and plenty of Nutella to give homemade granola a whole new flavor profile. The granola starts with oats, ground flax and sliced almonds. Mashed banana, Nutella, maple syrup, cinnamon, vanilla and salt are added to the base and stirred well. The whole thing is then baked, slowly, until crisp and flavorful. It’s definitely not going to taste like the granola you might find at the health food store but with no added oil, this is an indulgent granola that you can still feel very good about eating for breakfast, on top of yogurt or even on top of ice cream.
- Biscoff fans will find a new way to use the addictive cookie spread in the recipe for Biscoff Biscotti with Biscoff Glaze that Mysisterzfantacy baked. These biscotti have biscoff right in the batter, giving them a great brown sugar and spice flavor, and they’re drizzled with a simple glaze to highlight the spread even more. The cookies are crisp and flavorful – and they are ideal for serving with mugs of tea or spiced cider when the weather gets cool!
- Pumpkin is a great ingredient to work with because there is so much you can do with it, even though classics like pumpkin bread and pumpkin pie are always reliable choices. The Chic Life was inspired to use pumpkin in a batch of Healthy Pumpkin Pie Muffins instead of a plain pumpkin pie. The moist, satisfying muffins are full of pumpkin puree and warm fall spices, and they’re topped off with a brown sugar and oat streusel, as well as with some pumpkin seeds. The recipes is full of suggestions for tweaking this recipe for healthier options, as well as ways to veganize it easily.
