PB Oatmeal Breakfast Cookies

I've been craving peanut butter lately and these cookies sounded like they would really hit the spot. We all really liked the flavor. They weren't too sweet so they made for a tasty breakfast. 

For me, they would be a good breakfast or even a snack. It's easy to grab a couple and head on your way. My children, however, needed a large handful of cookies to satisfy them in the morning so if you typically eat a bigger breakfast, these may not be filling enough for you.

Rhubarb Muffins

I am a big fan of rhubarb but the majority of the recipes I've eaten and made are super sweet. I was on the hunt for a new recipe to try where I could taste the rhubarb without being overpowered with sugar. 

I found this muffin recipe and decided to give it a try. I thought there was an awful lot of sugar in the recipe so I decided to cut back on that. I also used applesauce instead of oil to make them a bit healthier. The muffins turned out well and tasted great.

Sourdough Dutch Baby


Sourdough Saturday...time to use our discard. LOVE this recipe because there is no need to prep this Dutch Baby recipe the night before. Just have to let the discard reach room temperature (although I don't always to do) and let the mixture sit for 10 minutes after blended (although I don't always do that either). It does turn out a little lighter and airier if you do but it is still edible if you don't :)

I like to serve the Dutch Baby with some sliced strawberries and a dusting of powdered sugar. The kids then load on the syrup. It would be delicious topped with any fruit. If you would prefer to try the savory route, the recipe offers a slight variation in ingredients to accommodate the different flavors. Very versatile and absolutely delicious!

Sourdough Banana Muffins

These Banana Muffins are loaded with dark chocolate chips. They are full of flavor and absolutely delicious. My kids loved them as much as I did!

I typically like a little added crunch so next time I make these muffins, I may add in some chopped walnuts to some of the muffins for a little variety.

Sourdough Cinnamon Muffins

These Sourdough Cinnamon Muffins are going to be a great addition to our sourdough rotation. They are quick and easy to make for a grab and go breakfast or a snack. They aren’t overly sweet which makes them a keeper for our family.

In the future, I may play around with this recipe a bit. I think these muffins would taste wonderful with some added apples, possibly some nuts as well to give it them little crunch. After we make them a few times, I’m sure we’ll come up with some new ways to mix them up a bit. It’s great as it but a little variety is always fun too!

Sourdough English Muffins

The Sourdough English Muffins are sooo yummy served warm, right off the griddle. We like them with a little bit on honey on them…sometimes Xander eats them with jam instead. If you don’t eat them all in one sitting, warm them slightly before eating the leftovers.

After making these English Muffins, plan to eat them within a few days. I’ll make them for a big breakfast and then we’ll have the leftovers for snacks the next few days. They don’t keep much longer than that but they are so good, they are definitely worth making.

Pistachio Muffins

These Pistachio Muffins were delicious! They were savory with a touch of sweet. An absolute treat to enjoy for breakfast or brunch.

I was a little worried about how they would turn out since the batter was so thick but they turned out wonderfully…once they finally finished cooking. That was partially my fault since I chose to bake them as jumbo muffins (trying to complete with the Costco muffins my kids LOVE) but even if they were in a regular muffin pan, I believe they would have likely taken a bit longer to bake. Well worth it though…so yummy.

Blueberry Coffee Cake

Blueberry Coffee Cake
I wanted to make a special breakfast for the kids this morning and found this Blueberry Coffee Cake recipe that looked DELICIOUS! I decided to give it a try and am so happy that I did. WOW…was it amazing! Disclaimer…it is LOADED with butter and sugar but I keep telling myself that I used a whole cup of greek yogurt instead of sour cream so it was a lot healthier🙄😬

Sourdough Zucchini Muffins

Sourdough Zucchini Muffins
These Sourdough Zucchini Muffins are a quick and tasty way to use up your sourdough discard for the week. My kids enjoy them for breakfast or grab them for a quick snack after school. They do prefer them with chocolate chips so those are a regular addition for us.

Sourdough Scones

Sourdough Scones
If you have sourdough starter, you HAVE to give this Sourdough Scones recipe a try. These scones are delicious! They aren’t too sweet and have a subtle sourdough flavor. We chose to add dried cranberries (but doubled the amount called for in the recipe). We have more cranberries to use the next time we make them. Once we’re out of cranberries, I think we’ll give dried blueberries a try🫐

Sourdough Blueberry Mini Muffins

Sourdough Blueberry Mini Muffins

Kenxie tackled these Sourdough Blueberry Mini Muffins by herself. We usually only get one sourdough recipe a week out of our sourdough starter but this week we had a bit more leftover so…our tummies benefited 🙂

Sourdough Coffee Cake

We have “Sourdough Saturdays” at our house thanks to my friend, Janinne, who shared some of her sourdough starter with us. It lives and grows in our fridge all week long and then we decide which recipe we’ll make each week to use the discard. This week we chose to make a Sourdough Coffee Cake recipe. After we make the recipe, we feed it (flour and water) and back into the fridge it goes…until the next Saturday.

This week, the kids requested Coffee Cake and settled on this cinnamon flavored pan of yumminess. It’s an easy recipe that can be whipped up quickly. Pretty standard pantry ingredients too so no need to make an extra trip to the grocery store for specific ingredients. Kenxie joined me in making the coffee cake tonight.
