triple nut butter // pecans, cashews + almonds

Triple Nut Butter

We loooooove our nut butters - no lie. Between Justin, Brody and I we probably go through about a jar a week. Overnight oats, farina, celery and peanut butter, waffles and nut butter, english muffins with nut butter and banana...the list goes on and on.

When I have the motivation I like to make my own. It is super simple, and every time I whip up a batch I think to myself why on earth I don't do this more often.

A quick roast and blend and you have yourself a nut butter. A nut butter where you control the ingredients, texture and amount.

kitchen IQ + So Delicious Brunch! // Banana Pancakes

Banana Pancakes // Brunch with Kitchen IQ + So Delicious
At our house breakfast or brunch is a favorite. For us, a breakfast that includes a Mimosa automatically becomes Brunch.

This post combines my two favorite things: Banana Pancakes + Mimosas.  
This my friends, is the perfect start to any Sunday.

Who actually needs an excuse to day drink, I didn't think so.

chili // my go to recipe

chili // my go to recipe
Chili is always on my weekend meal rotation, typically made on a Sunday when it can simmer away on the stove early afternoon just in time for an early dinner. The beauty about chili , 9 times out of 10 you always have the ingredients on hand to cook up a batch.

Sometimes we serve with cornbread, over rice or elbow noodles but my favorite way to enjoy a bowl is with a handful of tortilla chips for scooping. Scoop, eat and repeat.

chocolate coconut granola // hemp seeds + quinoa

chocolate coconut granola // hemp seeds + quinoa
We love breakfast. Some days breakfast needs to be quick and easy and other days allow for a long leisurely breakfast over a vegan eggs bene or banana pancakes. Any way you choose to breakfast it needs to be good.

Making your own granola is so easy and much less expensive than any store bought granola.

My granola's vary from super crunchy (this one) to a softer granola (like this one). I prefer the crunch while Justin prefers the latter. It kind of reminds me of cocoa pebbles.

As I type this I am actually noshing on some coconut yogurt topped with this granola- soooo yum!
