Sugar-Free Caramelized Banana Oatmeal

Sugar-Free caramelized banana oatmeal. In other words, the best oatmeal I’ve ever had. My go-to oatmeal has always been my peanut butter banana oats. It’s easy, delicious and satisfying and I didn’t think anything could ever replace it as my favorite. That was until I made this caramelized banana oatmeal. I will admit, the fact that it requires one extra dish means I will continue to make my easy peanut butter oats more often, but these oats will be around over the weekends. I can at least guarantee that. Especially on a rainy weekend like we just had. That’s right, after the extreme cold we’ve had over the last few weeks, the temperature rose to 10°C last weekend and we had heavy rain from Friday to Saturday. Now, all of our snow…

The Healthiest Peanut Butter Hot Chocolate

Everyone is sharing healthy smoothie and salad recipes to start the New Year and I’m just here, sharing a peanut butter hot chocolate… One week into 2018.  This is not just any hot chocolate recipe though. This is the healthiest hot chocolate recipe (just go with it).  Why am I calling it the healthiest hot chocolate recipe? Well, because it doesn’t have any cream or sugar. Instead, it’s made with cashews, peanut butter, dates and cocoa. What could be healthier?!  (Okay, there is probably a “healthier” hot chocolate out there with special expensive ingredients, but I wanted a simple healthy drink that uses everyday ingredients). I made this recipe a few weeks ago, after walking home from work in -34°C weather (we’ve been experiencing very…

Top 10 Recipes of 2017

It’s almost the new year (!!), which means it’s time to see which were the top 10 recipes of 2017 on the blog.  Because, why not? These are the most popular recipes this year according to you. In other words, they’re the recipes you loved most. It’s no surprise that most of them are desserts – number 10 being the exception. You guys are like me, you love healthy treats! Then again, who doesn’t?! Before I leave you to the top recipes of the year, I want to thank you all for your ongoing support. Unsweetened Caroline has grown so much in the last year and it wouldn’t have been possible without you guys. So again, thank you for reading this little blog and trying my sugar-free…

Healthy Peanut Butter Crunch Balls

I would have shared these healthy peanut butter crunch balls with you sooner, but the truth is, I didn’t have any photos to go with the recipe. That’s the problem with being a food photographer and working full time at another job. You don’t get enough light to take pictures during the week. I developed the recipe earlier this week and I knew I wanted to share it with you guys for the holidays. I know I’m last minute, but at least I got to share the recipe before Christmas! Just before driving home to see our family. And before the freezing rain starts… We’re expecting two storms over the weekend, including 20-30 cm of snow on Christmas day. I guess we’ll have a white Christmas after all! I know…

Savory Sweet Potato Casserole with Rosemary Pecan Parmesan

This holiday season, I decided to make us a savory sweet potato casserole with rosemary pecan parmesan.  I can’t really compare it to the traditional sweet version, but guys, this casserole is incredible! Believe it or not, but even Shaun, who dislikes sweet potatoes, loves this recipe. I know, it’s a Christmas miracle.  I tested this recipe over the weekend, along with a few other holiday recipes for the blog. While we had our first snow of the season, I stayed cozy inside, testing new recipes, listening to Christmas music, wrapping presents, binge watching This is Us on Netflix and doing some cleaning. Not to mention going on a hike the day after the snow. There’s nothing better than a walk in nature after having some fresh snow on the ground…
