Chocolate Chip Banana Pancakes

My husband and I went on an anniversary vacation to Kauai last year. It was amazing. One thing that I tried and fell in love with was the Chocolate Chip Banana Pancakes. Everywhere we ate for breakfast I had to try the fun pancakes, but these by far were my favorite flavor combination. And don’t get me started on the Coconut Syrup. HEAVEN! Let’s just say I wasn’t counting calories. 😉

I wanted to recreate this taste of heaven for my girls when we got home. So I found this old family favorite pancake recipe and added in the bananas and chocolate chips. I didn’t even use syrup on these because they were so yummy.

Chocolate Chip Banana Pancakes
Ingredients
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 bananas, mashed
  • ¼-1/2 cup chocolate chips (add in to your preference)
Instructions
  1. In a medium mixing bowl stir together the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Make a well in the dry mixture and set aside.
  2. In another bowl mix the wet ingredients; egg, milk and oil. Add this mixture all at once to the dry mixture. Stir until just moistened. Batter may be lumpy and that's just fine. Add in your mashed bananas and stir. Add in the chocolate chips and mix well.
  3. Pour onto a heated griddle. I heat my griddle to about 325.
  4. Top with your favorite syrup, fruit or whipped cream.
Now I need to know what you would top these yummy pancakes with. Leave me a comment and let me know what you think the best pancake topping is. I’m gonna work on my coconut syrup recipe so I can share that later.

Crispy Baked Salmon

I’m excited to share this yummy Crispy Baked Salmon recipe with you today. It is a family favorite and comes together so quickly yet really seems special. You could make this for guests and they would think you’d been slaving in the kitchen all day.

You only need a few ingredients and most are probably in your pantry.

Crispy Baked Salmon
Ingredients
  • ½ cup plain yogurt
  • ½ cup finely crushed Ritz crackers
  • ¼ cup parmesan cheese
  • ¼ tsp. garlic powder
  • 2 (1/2-pound) salmon fillets
  • 1 lemon
Instructions
  1. Place yogurt in a dish. Mix crushed crackers with parmesan cheese and garlic powered in another dish. Coat both sides of the fillets with yogurt, then in the crushed cracker mixture.
  2. Place fillets in a well-greased baking dish. Bake at 405 degrees for 10-15 minutes, or until cooked through.
  3. Serve with lemon wedges. Makes 2 servings.
Make sure that you coat both sides of the fillet with yogurt. This will add some moisture to the salmon, and also help give it a nice tangy flavor.

Then coat the salmon with the crushed cracker mixture. This is my favorite part cause it makes it taste so yummy.

Crispy salmon bake

Place in a well-greased baking dish and cook for 10-15 minutes at 450 degrees.

Crispy Salmon Bake

Once the salmon is done it will have a nice golden brown crust. I like to have some of my crackers a little darker brown. I love the extra crunch this adds.

Crispy Salmon Bake

Pair it with a yummy side dish and you are all set.

Even my kids like this. All meat is chicken at our house. 🙂

Hope you enjoy!

cordon bleu pasta bake

Who’s excited for Valentine’s? Don’t forget it’s on Sunday! Which means Saturday night about 9 you’ll find Walgreens and your local grocery store packed full of men looking for last minute gifts!

Instead of battling the crowds (seriously, every year I’m surprised at the lines of people waiting outside in the freezing cold to get into restaurants) I make a dinner and we stay in. This year I’m re-creating our favorite Cordon Bleu Baked Pasta from a local restaurant.

sams bertolli

I stopped by Sam’s Club to pick up what I needed. I grabbed a pack of their fresh chicken breasts, broccoli, mushrooms, Bertolli Alfredo Sauce, a box of Penne pasta, sliced mushrooms, bacon, some strawberries, and somehow a bouquet of flowers made it home with me too.

cordon bleu ingredients

Bertolli Alfredo is made with real cream and aged Parmesan and makes the perfect launching spot for this delicious dish.

cordon bleu ingredients

You’ll also need green onions, ham, Swiss cheese and Mozerella for this dish.

chicken seasoned

While the water is warming up for the pasta, I went ahead and seasoned the chicken with garlic powder, paprika and salt and pepper.

chicken cooking

Heat up your pan and extra virgin oil olive and cook the chicken while the noodles are cooking.

cordon bleu

While the chicken and noodles are cooking, chop up the ham, bacon, mushrooms, green onions. You can either thinly slice the Swiss cheese or grate it. The Swiss brings the flavor you need to seal the deal on this being a cordon bleu dish.

cordon bleu mixed

Drain the noodles, at the other ingredients and 2 jars of Bertolli Alfredo.  Mix together.

 

cordon bleu

Pour into a sprayed baking dish. Top with Swiss and Mozzarella and bake at 350 for about 30 minutes or until it is bubbly and the cheese starts to brown.

My kids couldn’t wait to try it out. After a few bites my 7 year old exclaimed, “This is what I want for my birthday dinner!”

Cordon Bleu Baked Pasta
Ingredients
  • 1 lb penne noodles, cooked and drained
  • 2 jars Bertoli Alfredo Sauce
  • 3 chicken breasts, cooked and chopped
  • ½ cup chopped ham
  • 5 slices bacon, cooked
  • 5 green onions, chopped
  • ½ cup mushrooms, chopped
  • ½ lb grated Swiss Cheese
  • ½ lb grated Mozzarella Cheese
Instructions
  1. Mix noodles, chicken, alfredo sauce, ham, half of the bacon, half of the green onions, mushrooms, and Swiss cheese. Pour into a greased 9x13" pan. Chop with remaining bacon, green onions and Mozzerella. Bake at 350 for about 30 minutes, or until bubble and cheese begins to brown.

Baked BBQ Chicken Sub

A couple Saturdays ago we were enjoying quite the snow storm. My husband and boys spent most of the day shoveling driveways. Needing to feel like I was contributing to their efforts, I wracked my brain trying to come up with something to feed them when they came back inside. It needed to be warm and heart, but no more soup! I had been on a soup kick and they were sick of all my soups! I was making raspberry twist to share with the neighbors when I remembered my mom’s famous BBQ Chicken Sandwiches. We would beg her to make these for us on snowy days.

bbq chicken sandwich

I took some of the dough from the Raspberry Twists and formed them into sub shaped blobs. The Raspberry Twists use my favorite roll dough. I use it for cinnamon rolls, Sunday dinner rolls, and Raspberry Twists so I knew it would be good. I make these buns pretty flat and a little wide so there isn’t too much thickness, but enough surface space to stack all the goodness. Let raise then baked at 350 till golden brown.

When they finish baking they looked something like this.

bbq chicken

While the buns are raising and baking I sliced and cooked the chicken. Once the chicken is cooked add your favorite BBQ sauce.

bbq chicken sandwich

About this time, my boys had returned and boy were they hungry. To make these sandwiches we let everyone pick their topping, wrap the sandwich in foil and bake until the cheese is melted. So go ahead and build your sandwich right on the foil. First, I added mushrooms.

Then some slices of green peppers.

Followed by the BBQ chicken.

And topped off with grated cheese. You can add mayo or Miracle Whip if you’re into that.

 

BBQ Chicken Sandwich

Then wrap up your sandwich and write your name on the foil with a Sharpie. Throw them back in the oven until the cheese is melted. How long it takes depends on how hot your bread and chicken are to start with it usually takes between 5-20 minutes.. Just check and when the cheese is melted you are ready to eat!

Easy to make homemade Banana Bread Granola recipe that tastes just like banana bread.  Add the granola to yogurt, oatmeal or just simply add milk for a delicious and healthy breakfast.

Banana Bread Granola

Hello there!  It’s Katie from The Casual Craftlete blog.  Today I am sharing a super easy and tasty banana bread granola recipe.  The weather is starting to cool down and there is a slight chill in the air.  This means baking seasons is upon us.  One of my favorite recipes to make is banana bread.  Instead of just making another bread recipe, I thought I would add the same yummy ingredients and make granola.  This granola is so incredibility good.  It really does taste like banana bread only slightly healthier.

Easy to make Banana Bread Granola Recipe

One of my favorite recipes to make to save money and use all natural ingredients is granola.  This batch of banana bread granola makes quite a lot of granola, an entire 9 x 13 baking pan, and the best part is you know exactly what goes into the recipe to make the granola.  I try to sneak in healthy ingredients like flax seeds that have tons of fiber that will keep you full.  This granola recipe is also great to use very ripe bananas that are about to go bad.  If you have never made granola before, don’t be intimated.  There are just a few easy steps when it comes to making this recipe.  So, if you can mash a banana and use a whisk to mix ingredients, you’re good to go!

Healthy Banana Bread Granola

Banana Bread Granola
Ingredients
  • 5 cups old fashion rolled oats
  • 2 cups walnuts, chopped
  • 2 Tablespoons flax seed
  • ½ cup unsweetened coconut flakes
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 4 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • ⅓ cup pure maple syrup
  • ½ mashed banana (approximately 1 banana)
  • ½ cup coconut oil, melted and cooled
  • 2 cups dried bananas
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 325 F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine rolled oats and walnuts.
  3. In a separate medium mixing bowl, combine all the remaining ingredients except the dried bananas.
  4. Pour the liquid mixture over the oats and nuts and stir until well combined.
  5. Pour the mixture onto prepared baking sheet, using a spatula to pressed down on the granola.
  6. Bake at 325 F for approximately 30 to 40 minutes, or until the granola is golden brown.
  7. Remove granola from the oven and place on a wire cool rack and let cool completely.
  8. Once cooled, break the granola into chunks and add the dried bananas.
  9. Store in an airtight container for up to one week.
 

Homemade Banana Bread Granola

The granola can be added to yogurt, oatmeal, ice cream or just add milk.  This is a hearty and healthy breakfast option that can be made ahead and enjoyed all week long.

Thank you for letting me share my banana bread granola recipe with you today.  How do you like to eat your granola?
