Ingredients: 2 large firm baking apples (I used Honeycrisp), cored 1 cup rolled oats 1 tsp cinnamon 1/4 tsp freshly ground nutmeg 4 Medjool dates (or raisins), pitted and chopped 1 tbsp chia seeds (or try ground flax) 1/4 cup pecans (or walnuts), chopped 1.5 cups almond milk 1 tsp vanilla 1.5 tbsp pure maple syrup, plus more for garnish 1. Preheat oven to 350F. Wash and core apples. You want to make the hole about an inch in diametre, so there is enough room for stuffing. Place cored apples in a lightly oiled rimmed baking dish (I used a 4 cup dish). 2. In a mixing bowl, whisk together the rest of the ingredients. 3. Fill apples with the oatmeal mixture (pack it down slightly) and then spoon the leftover oatmeal + all liquid into the dish, surrounding the apples. 4. Bake, uncovered, for approximately 35-50 minutes (this time will vary depending on your apples, so keep an eye on it). To test for doneness, pierce apple with a knife. If it slides through fairly easy itโ€™s done. The almond milk should also be absorbed and the oatmeal fairly firm. Serve with drizzle of pure maple syrup, apple butter or pumpkin butter, whipped coconut cream, non-dairy ice cream, or yogurt.

Caramel Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies
These look simply incredible. Two of my favorite things, chocolate chip cookies and caramel, combined into one heavenly cookie creation. I was looking for more caramel recipes (because that's what I do in my spare time, duh) when I found this recipe from Table for Two. I mean, can you even imagine anything more perfect?!? Look at that gooey, warm caramel. Those molten chocolate chunks. That perfectly chewy cookie. Imagine how good these are fresh out of the oven. Caramel Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies Prep Time: 10 min. Cook Time: 13 min. Difficulty: Easy Recipe adapted from Table for Two Ingredients 3 sticks (1ยฝ cup) unsalted butter, softened 1ยฝ cup dark brown sugar, packed ยฝ cup granulated sugar 2 eggs 4 tsp. vanilla extract 2 cups all-purpose flour 2 cups bread flour (you may use all-purpose flour instead if you don't have it on hand) 4 tsp. cornstarch 2 tsp. baking soda 1 tsp. salt 1ยฝ cups chocolate chunks ยฝ cup dark chocolate, finely chopped 18 caramel candies, cut in half to give you 36 Directions 1. Preheat oven to 350ยฐF. Line baking sheets with parchment paper. In a large bowl, whisk together the flours, cornstarch, baking soda, and salt. In another mixing bowl, cream together butter and sugar until fluffy (about 2 mins). Add eggs and vanilla. Beat 2 more mins. 2. Gradually add flour mixture, beating until fully incorporated. Fold in chocolate chips with a spatula. To form the cookies, take a spoonful of dough, and use your thumb to make a small hole and press the caramel into the center. Re-roll the ball to cover the caramel candy. 3. Bake for 11-13 minutes. They may look quite soft at this point, but remember they will continue to cook after you remove them from the oven. Allow them to cool completely on baking sheet, or else they'll break and caramel will ooze everywhere. Enjoy, my fellow cookie monsters!! This one's for @JPBenedetto โ€“ maybe you could find a way to work in some oatmeal here, for a little extra chew? :D <3 @Luci546 @MooshieBay @InPlainSight You guys might like this one as well :)
Salted Caramel Chocolate Chip Cheesecake Bites โ™ฅ โ€“ย Sally's Baking Addiction
Oh my goodness gracious I need these in front of me RIGHT NOW. I'm obsessed. Those adorably tiny chocolate chips? And sweet caramel goodness? And Oreo cookie crust?! And CHEESECAKE, for Pete's sake?!? It just really couldn't be any better, dessert-wise. Sally's Baking Addiction, I salute you for creating this incredible little treat that's sure to be the reason I gain 300 pounds over the next month. โ™ฅ To make your own batch of these decadent little treats, you will need: 18 whole Oreos (Double Stuf or regular) 1/4 cup (60g) unsalted butter, melted 16 oz (448g) full-fat cream cheese, softened to room temperature 3/4 cup (150g) granulated sugar 1/4 cup (60g) yogurt (you can also substitute sour cream) 2 large eggs 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 1 cup (180g) mini semi-sweet chocolate chips homemade salted caramel sauce (you can find the recipe here!) Here's what you do! 1. Preheat your oven to 350ยฐF. Line two cupcake pans with 18 paper or aluminum cupcake liners. 2. Make the crust: Use a food processor to reduce Oreos into a fine, crumbly texture. In a medium-sized mixing bowl, combine cookie crumbs and melted butter. Spoon one heaping tablespoon of the mixture into each liner, then press down firmly and uniformly with fingers. You should have enough for 16-18 liners. Bake for 5 minutes and allow to cool while you make the filling. 3. Make the filling: In a large mixing bowl, use an electric beater to beat the cream cheese on medium speed until smooth. Add sugar and yogurt, and beat to combined. Turn mixer down to low speed and add eggs one at a time. Finally, beat in vanilla and mini chocolate chips. Remember to scrape down the sides of the bowl with a spatula as needed! 4. Use a spoon to fill cupcake molds with batter until almost full. Bake for 20-23 minutes. When you remove the cheesecakes from the oven, their centers will still be slightly jiggly and they may have inflated a bit. That's all perfectly normal. Allow to cool at room temperature for an hour. 5. After they've cooled at room temp, place the cheesecakes in the fridge and allow to chill another two hours. Top with salted caramel and additional mini-chips just before serving. Note: You can store cheesecakes in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 5 days. Store cheesecakes (without caramel) in the freezer for up to 2 months. Thaw in the refrigerator overnight. Let me know if you make these!! :D I know they're top priority on my To Bake list. Thanks again to Sally's Baking Addiction โ€“ all photos and ideas are hers! Happy baking, Vinglers :) Update: Super-awesome Vingler @PikaPixie made a great card showing her experience making these delicious treats! Check it out here for photos :)

Homemade Pop-Tarts? Oh Hells Yeah!
I never want to eat a store bought Pop-Tart again. Not after looking at this recipe, which uses real, flaky butter pastry (instead of crumbly cardboard dough) and your favorite fruit preserves (instead of sugar mixed with red dye 40). The homemade frosting and cheerful rainbow sprinkles are the icing on the cake! Photo and recipe credit go to Jaclyn over at Cooking Classy, an awesome cooking and baking blog that you need to check out! For now, here's the recipe for your new favorite breakfast (or anytime) treat. Homemade Pop-Tarts Prep Time: 20 mins. Chill Time: 3 hours. Cook Time: 30 mins. Difficulty: Medium Makes 8 pop-tarts What You'll Need For the pastry: 2 cups + 2 Tbsp all-purpose flour, plus more for rolling 1 tsp salt 1 tsp granulated sugar 1 cup unsalted butter, cold and diced into 1/2-inch cubes 4 - 5 Tbsp ice water 3/4 cup strawberry preserves, divided (or other preserve of choice) For the icing: 1 cup powdered sugar 2 Tbsp half and half, plus more as needed 1/4 tsp vanilla extract What To Do 1. Make the pastry dough: Pulse together flour, salt and granulated sugar in a food processor. Add butter and continue to pulse until the butter is broken up, and the mixture has a mealy texture. Add 4 tablespoons of water and pulse a few times until it comes together into dough; if it fails to come together, add another tablespoon of water and pulse again. 2. On a clean surface, divide dough into two portions. Shape each into a 5-inch dish, cover with plastic wrap, and chill in the fridge for 1 hour. Meanwhile, line two rimmed cookie sheets with parchment paper. 3. Remove one disk from the fridge; leave the other one to chill. Roll out the dough disk into a rectangle measuring approximately 13 inches by 11 inches. If edges crack, just stick them back together and keep rolling. Trim edges just so, so you have a 12"x10" perfect rectangle. Cut this into 8 5"x3" rectangles. 4. Arrange 4 rectangles evenly spaced on the parchment-lined cookie sheet; spread 1 and 1/2 tablespoons of jam evenly down the center of each rectangle. Seal edges with fingertips, then reseal with a fork. Use a tooth pick to poke the top of each tart 4 times. Let chill in the freezer for at least 2 hours, or up to one week. 5. Repeat process with second disk of dough. 6. Preheat oven to 375ยฐF. With one rack in the upper third of the oven and one in the bottom third, bake frozen tarts until golden, rotating racks halfway through baking. It will take about 25-30 minutes in all. Allow to cool on the cookie sheet for several minutes, then transfer to wire rack. 7. Make the icing: Whisk together all ingredients, then add additional half and half a 1/2 teaspoon at a time until you reach the desired consistency. Spread over cooled pop-tarts, then dust with rainbow sprinkles. Allow to set at room temperature. Store in an airtight container. Enjoy! A little bit of a process, but totally worth it, don't you think? I can't wait to try these sweet treats in my own kitchen! :D
Love Girl Scout Cookies? Try This Homemade Thin Mints Recipe
Once in a while, I have a serious Thin Mint craving. Okay, scratch that. I have a serious Thin Mint craving every moment of every day. I've bought three boxes of shoddy, knock-off "Mint Thins" in the past two weeks (true story). But there's nothing quite like the original โ€“ until now. This recipe faithfully recreates this all-American favorite, down to appearance and texture. Folks rave about them. I haven't tried them yet, but I plan to as soon as possible. If you try your hand at putting those pesky Girl Scouts out of business (jk), let me know how it goes! Copycat Recipe: Thin Mints Cookie Ingredients 1 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature 1 cup cocoa powder 1 cup powdered sugar 1 tsp. vanilla extract 3/4 tsp. salt 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour Coating Ingredients 16 oz. semi-sweet baking chocolate 1 1/2 tsp. peppermint oil 1.) Pre-heat the oven to 350ยฐF. In a large mixing bowl, cream butter until it has a light, fluffy consistency. Add the powdered sugar; mix until combined. Stir in salt, vanilla, and cocoa powder. At this point, the mixture should resemble a thick frosting. Add flour, and mix until just combined. Do not overmix. 2.) Time to use your hands a little. Form the dough into a ball and knead a few times, then flatten it into a disk about an inch thick, wrap in plastic wrap, and place it in the freezer for 15 minutes. 3.) Once dough has chilled, remove it from the freezer and roll it out to a thickness of about 1/8 inch. For a classic look, cut out cookies with a round cookie cutter or small glass with a diameter of between 1 1/2 in. and 2 in. 4.) Bake cookies on an ungreased cookie sheet for 10 minutes. Cool on wire rack. Meanwhile, prepare the peppermint chocolate coating. Slowly melt chocolate, using short bursts of heat in the microwave, or by using/simulating a double boiler. Stir in peppermint oil. 5.) Using a fork, gently lower cookies one at a time into the coating. Turn to coat entirely, then lift out with fork, allowing extra chocolate to drip off before placing cookie on a parchment or plastic-lined cookie sheet. Refrigerate chocolate-coated cookies for 15-30 minutes to allow them to set. Recipe adapted from The View From Great Island There you have it! Your own homemade Thin Mints. Time to throw out the store-bought "Mint Thins" and scarf down a couple of these bad boys.
OMG Samoa Brownies โ€“ย Girl Scout Cookies Gone Wild
Somebody pinch me. Am I dead? I must be dead. Because I am IN HEAVEN. These Samoa Brownies, brought to you by Broma Bakery, are all I've ever needed in a dessert: gooey chocolate brownie, toasted coconut, and sweet caramel. I thought Samoa girl scout cookies were as good as it gets โ€“ and then I met these brownies. Samoas Brownies Recipe by Sarah Fennel at Broma Bakery Ingredients For the brownies: ยพ cup cocoa powder 1ยฝ cups sugar 2 eggs 12 tablespoons unsalted butter ยฝ cup all-purpose flour 2 teaspoons vanilla extract ยฝ teaspoon salt ยฝ cup bittersweet chocolate disks 1 teaspoon brewed coffee (optional) For the coconut caramel: 1 cup granulated sugar 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, room temp, cut into tablespoons ยฝ cup heavy cream, room temp 2ยฝ cups sweetened, shredded coconut For the chocolate drizzle: ยผ cup chopped bittersweet chocolate 1. Brownies: Preheat oven to 350ยฐF. Line an 8"x8" baking dish with parchment paper and set aside. In a microwave-safe mixing bowl, melt the butter. Stir in sugar, eggs, vanilla extract, salt, and optional coffee. Once combined, fold in cocoa powder and flour. Toss in bittersweet chocolate disks. Pour the brownie batter into the baking dish, spreading evenly to the edges. Bake for 35 minutes, or until a knife inserted in the center of the brownies comes out clean. Remove from oven and allow to cool for 15 minutes before topping with caramel sauce. 2. Coconut Caramel Sauce: While the brownies are baking, make your coconut caramel. In a medium saucepan, heat the sugar on medium-high heat for about 5 minutes. Use a spatula to occasionally stir the sugar, getting to the bottom of the pan. At first the sugar will be lumpy, but will soon melt and start turning a brownish color. Don't stir too often, just enough to keep everything evenly cooking. After 5 minutes, the sugar should become fully melted. Once it becomes a dark amber hue, remove from heat immediately and stir in butter. The mixture will violently bubble. You're doing it right. Use your spatula to stir the butter and sugar until they melt together completely. This can take 1-2 minutes. Next, pour in the heavy cream and sea salt. You can use 1 to 1ยฝ teaspoons, depending on how much saltiness you like. Use your spatula to stir until everything is combined. Place back on the stove for about 30 seconds, stirring the whole time. Remove from heat. Stir in coconut flakes. Set aside until brownies are cooled. 3.) Assemble the Brownies: Once the brownies have cooled for 15 minutes, run a knife along the edges so they don't stick to the pan. Spread the coconut caramel on top of the brownies. Again, run a knife along the edges to prevent anything from sticking to the pan. Heat the drizzling chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl in 30 second increments. Stir in between each heating. Spoon melted chocolate into a small ziplock bag, creating a makeshift pastry bag. Cut a small (tiny!) slit at the bottom corner of the bag. Drizzle the melted chocolate over the coconut caramel. Set in the fridge to cool for about 1 hour. Cut into 9 brownies and serve! If you liked this Girl Scout cookie remix recipe, try making your own Homemade Thin Mints!
Healthy Strawberry Chia Watermelon Smoothie
Cold and refreshing, sweet and tart, with a twist of lime for freshness โ€“ this vegan, gluten-free smoothie is a perfect (and healthy!) summer treat, complete with chia seeds, which I probably don't need to tell you are a nutritional GOLD MINE. Chia seeds are packed with fiber and antioxidants. They're a good source of protein, and gram for gram, have more Omega-3 fatty acids than salmon. It's no coincidence that "chia" means "strength" โ€“ ancient Mayans and Aztecs prized this tiny seed for its sustainable energy. Today, health nuts everywhere rejoice in the chia's ability to pack so much good stuff into so few calories! (Source) This delicious, refreshing smoothies could not be easier to make. Minimalist Baker has whipped up another incredible recipe for us; check out their site for a lot of other wonderful treats that take one bowl, less than 10 ingredients, or 30 minutes (or less!) to prepare. In the meantime, pour yourself a big glass of this smoothie, sprinkle on some chia seeds, and feel your cares float away on the summer breeze. Strawberry Chia Watermelon Smoothie Recipe by Minimalist Baker Serves 2 Ingredients 1 1/2 cups (240 g) fresh watermelon, cubed (black seeds removed) 1 cup (120 g) frozen strawberries 1/2 ripe banana (50 g), previously peeled, chopped and frozen 1/2 - 3/4 cup (120-180 ml) unsweetened plain almond milk 1 lime, juiced (~30 ml) 1 Tbsp chia or hemp seeds (optional) Add all ingredients to a blender and blend until creamy and smooth, adding more almond milk to thin, or more frozen strawberries or ice to thicken. Taste and adjust seasonings as needed, adding more lime for acidity, banana for sweetness, or watermelon for a more intense watermelon flavor. Top with additional chia seeds to mock watermelon seeds! Best when fresh, though leftovers keep covered in the refrigerator for 1-2 days. I can't wait to give this a try โ€“ let me know how yours come out! :)
