  • Honey Almond & Coconut Granola

    { 25 comments }

    For the last year I have been so hooked on granola! I love it for snacking and for topping my smoothies. The granola gives my smoothies serious staying power and keeps me full considerably longer than when I leave it off. After trying just about every granola brand and variety offered at Whole Foods (and [...]

    I have a recipe to share with you today that might be the best recipe I've shared in a long time! Let me introduce you to homemade Peanut Butter Chia Seed Granola! I wish I could say I'm exaggerating but I've made this granola FOUR times in the past eight days. It's that good. (And [...]

  • Adding A Little Brilliance to My Daily Beverage Routine with Tate+Lyle®

    { 188 comments }

    One of the things I look forward to each day is my beverage routine. It's such a simple thing but there's something about it that feels so comforting. It starts with coffee in the morning, followed by hot tea, iced coffee, kombucha or sparkling water in the afternoon and finally a cocktail, mocktail or another [...]

    Today is a pretty epic day for PBR. It's my dad's first recipe post! I can't even begin to tell you how happy it makes me that he's going to be regularly contributing around here. Let me back up and tell you the story of me + my dad + my love for cooking. My [...]

  • How to Make Delicious Pizza Using FlatOut Wraps

    { 19 comments }

    If I had to list five of my favorite foods the list would include pizza, ice cream, cheese, cupcakes and peanut butter. Not exactly all the healthiest choices but very delicious! Recently, I've discovered an easy, lighter alternative to pizza that makes a great lunch or weeknight dinner. FlatOut pizza! I have been using FlatOut [...]

  • Blueberry Banana Muffins {Recipe}

    { 17 comments }

    Good morning! I always keep bananas in the house for smoothies and sometimes they get a little too ripe before I get around to using them. I know many people freeze their bananas for smoothies but since all the other fruit I use in my smoothies is frozen, I like having the banana to add [...]

  • Avocado, Cashew & Lime Tuna Salad

    { 11 comments }

    I get on kicks with my breakfast and lunch selections where I make variations of the same thing every day. Lately it's been smoothies for breakfast and salads for lunch. Last week I was ready to break out of my salad rut so I got a little creative with a can of tuna. I don't [...]

  • Olive Oil & Greek Yogurt Lemon Chia Seed Muffins

    Good morning! It's a rainy, chilly and dreary day here in Charlotte so it seems like the perfect morning to share a baking recipe with you. I don't know about you but this kind of weather always makes me want to cozy up in the kitchen with a cup of hot tea and play around. [...]

  • Peanut Butter & Banana Muffins {Recipe}

    { 29 comments }

    I know I said I was going to post a workout today but then I made these muffins this morning and I had to share the recipe immediately. So we'll eat muffins first and then we'll do a squat workout later! :) It's no secret that peanut butter ranks is one of my favorite foods [...]

  • Easy & Healthy Homemade Granola Bars

    { 50 comments }

    Today I had the great honor of giving a presentation about healthy eating to a group of nearly 40 young local gymnasts. These girls are on the competitive team at International Gymnastics and they train over 20 hours a week, including 4 hours after school every day. We talked about fueling their bodies for their [...]

  • Gluten-Free, Refined Sugar-Free Mini Carrot Cake Cupcakes

    { 15 comments }

    I can count the number of the times I've tried to bake desserts that skew more towards healthy than sinful and my experiences have mostly led me to believe that when you want a sweet, you just need to go for it. There was one incident where Pintest led me to believe it was a [...]

  • Weather Talk, Egg Talk, A Healthy Cookie Recipe and More…

    { 22 comments }

    Hola! (Seriously, hola...I so wish I was back in the Caribbean right now. It's so cold and windy in Charlotte. I shouldn't complain though as some of you are digging out from snow...again.) But really, when is spring going to actually arrive this year? It's going to be a cold Easter and the 10 day [...]

  • Coconut Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

    { 18 comments }

    How's that for a recipe title? It could also be known as "open the pantry and fridge and throw in everything that you have banana bread."  I had two bananas that were destined for the trash can if I didn't find a use for them yesterday. I am a little over traditional banana bread so [...]

  • Blueberry Crumb Bars + A Dilemma

    { 69 comments }

    Some of you might know this but I didn't get my start with blogging on Peanut Butter Runner. I actually had my food/recipe blog, Bakin' & Eggs, for two years before launching Peanut Butter Runner. I posted recipes there 3-5 times a week. I started PBR because I was constantly asked how I could bake [...]

  • Strawberry Nutella Muffins

    I did manage to finally peel myself off the couch and do something last night. I am a little sore from yesterday's Fight Gone Bad workout but it's not nearly as bad as I anticipated. First, I headed over to our new location for a quick meeting about our wall murals. We are having some [...]

    It's been quite a Monday over here and I've been full-speed ahead since my feet hit the floor at 5:15 a.m. My first stop was the Y to teach 6 a.m. BodyPump and then back home to clean myself up and feed my starving belly. Strength training makes me so hungry! I got a little crazy [...]

  • Easy and Healthy Banana Muffins

    { 30 comments }

    I’m popping in with a lunch break update for you because I have a recipe to share! I buy bananas every week at the store and sometimes I end up with bananas that are a little past their prime…even for oatmeal. (I prefer bananas with brown spots for oatmeal because they are sweeter and mix [...]
