Gluten Free Blueberry Oatmeal Bars

Starbucks Blueberry Oatmeal Bars are recreated in this easy gluten free recipe. These Oatmeal Bars are a delicious treat, great for breakfast or a sweet snack!

I originally shared this recipe 5 years ago and these delicious bars have been a hit ever since!

My brother was diagnosed with celiac disease in 2011. At that time he asked me to transform some of his favorite foods into gluten-free recipes.

Over the years, I’ve made him Gluten Free Orange Chicken and Gluten Free General Tso’s Chicken. These were a couple of his Chinese food favorites that he couldn’t eat anymore after going gluten free.

I’ve also made him Gluten Free Nutella Brookies and Gluten Free Peanut Butter Chocolate Cupcakes. These sweet treats are perfect for birthdays, holidays and fulfilling any chocolate cravings!

Back in college, he used to work at Starbucks and loved their Blueberry Oat Bars. So of course I created a gluten free version for him! I served these oatmeal bars at his baby shower and always make them when he’s visiting me in San Diego.

They’re sweet enough to be a dessert and really delicious when topped with a scoop of vanilla ice cream! They’re also filled with so many vitamin-packed blueberries, you could totally get away with eating them for breakfast!

It’s a super easy recipe that can be prepped in just 15 minutes!

You too? Then you’re going to love this new breakfast recipe! It seriously takes 10 minutes to make, including slicing and dicing!

If you know me, then you know my love of avocados runs deep. I’m fortunate to live in San Diego where I can always get my hands on fresh California Avocados!

One of my favorite appetizers is Avocado Bruschetta.  And when it comes to salads, I can’t get enough of this Crispy Goat Cheese Avocado Salad! Every time I post a picture of this salad on Instagram, people go crazy!

When it comes to dinner, I could eat these Cheesy Avocado Corn Enchiladas every night! They are seriously THE BEST vegetarian enchiladas in the world. For lunch, I’m always down for an Avocado Bacon Tomato Grilled Cheese Sandwich!

As you can see, adding avocado to appetizers, breakfast, lunch and dinner is totally my jam! In this Avocado Omelette recipe, I’ve paired creamy avocado with traditional caprese salad ingredients. Diced cherry tomatoes, mozzarella cheese and fresh basil are all part of this omelette party!

The delicious combination of ingredients creates a healthy breakfast that is low carb, gluten free and vegetarian. It really is the perfect way to start your day!

Breakfast casserole with eggs, feta cheese and sun dried tomatoes and in bowls with green onions on the side

I love brunch! So much so that I have a group of friends nicknamed the “SBC: Sunday Brunch Crew”. I love making brunch and going out to brunch. In my world, if the question is brunch, the answer is always yes!

I’ve made so many brunch recipes over the years that it’s impossible to pick a favorite. This Meatloaf Hash definitely ranks up there though!

When it comes to sweet brunch dishes, I can never get enough Strawberry Pancakes with Cream Cheese Syrup or Salted Caramel Cinnamon Rolls.

When hosting a brunch at my house, I always like to serve at least one egg dish, a potato dish and something sweet.

I first made this Crockpot Breakfast Casserole recipe for Father’s Day 2014. I was hosting a brunch for friends and family and wanted to make recipes that could easily feed a crowd!

Since that brunch, I’ve made this breakfast casserole dozens of times. It’s not only great for a crowd at brunch, this easy breakfast casserole is perfect for meal prepping throughout the week.

Toss this casserole in the crockpot on Sunday, then reheat it for breakfast throughout the week. It’s great on it’s own or rolled up in a tortilla for a breakfast burrito.

You can also eat it as breakfast for dinner. No matter the time of day, I’m always down for breakfast foods!

Fluffy homemade Strawberry Pancakes are filled with fresh, juicy strawberries & drizzled with sweet cream cheese syrup. This easy breakfast recipe is made in under 30 minutes and great for kids and adults!

Breakfast is one of my favorite meals of the day! It can be sweet or savory.

It can include dishes that resemble dessert, yet are a perfectly acceptable way to start the day. Like these Blueberry Cream Cheese Muffins with a Chocolate Crumble or this Caramel Apple Bread Pudding.

Sweet treats for breakfast are one of my guilty pleasures. And these Strawberry Pancakes with Cream Cheese Syrup are at the top of my guilty pleasure list!

Cream Cheese Syrup, yes that is an actual thing. And if not, I just made it happen!  You’re welcome! 😉

I’ve been making these homemade pancakes for years and I guarantee they’ll be the best, most fluffy pancakes you’ve ever had. You can even substitute other ingredients for the strawberries, such as blueberries, chocolate chips or sliced bananas.

Adding the cream cheese syrup is totally optionally. But I would be doing you a disservice if I didn’t highly encourage you to make the cream cheese syrup!

Blueberry Pastry Delights

This Blueberry Pastry recipe is guaranteed to make your mornings more delicious! It’s easy to make with a can of crescent rolls, cream cheese & blueberries!

No berry makes my heart pitter-patter quite like the blueberry!  Little bites of happiness, I pop these blue treats like they’re M&M’s!

Making Blueberry Cream Cheese Muffins is a regular weekend occurrence at my house and these Gluten Free Blueberry Oat Bars are a must when my brother and sister in law come for a visit!

I was inspired to make this Blueberry Pastry recipe after having what I lovingly nicknamed “blueberry delights” at Shade Hotel in Manhattan Beach. When I lived in LA, my friend Christian managed the hotel and my friend Greg was the chef.  I loved frequenting their brunch,  mainly for these little blueberry pastry treats!

They may just be Blueberry Pastries to everyone else, but to me they will always be Blueberry Delights! 🙂

Growing up, and still to this day, Blueberry Muffins are one of my favorite breakfast menu items! I took this version of the classic muffin to a whole other level, possibly to a whole other menu!

These blueberry cream cheese muffins are so decadent, they could easily be mistaken for dessert (or if you are me, 3 nights last week, they actually were dessert!)  Yeah, I just admitted that 😉

When I took these muffins out of the oven, the blueberry was bubbling out of the chocolate crumble topping and my mouth immediately began to water!

Ham hash is something my Dad used to make me for breakfast growing up. Diced potatoes, onions and ham, with a little cheese sprinkled on top at the end. It was simple and my absolute favorite as a kid! As an adult, I partnered up with my friends at Smithfield, to kick up my ham hash a bit, adding a few different ingredients to make three different varieties.

First up is the Italian Ham Hash which features basil pesto, tomatoes and mozzarella cheese. It’s like taking your favorite pasta dish and making it into your new favorite breakfast potato dish!

Next up is the Mexican Ham Hash featuring jalapenos, a dash of chili powder, pepper jack cheese and fresh avocado. This one is a personal favorite as I love the Mexican flavors and I can never say no to a breakfast topped with avocado!

Finally, the Greek Ham Hash featuring mushrooms, oregano, sun dried tomatoes and feta cheese. This dish will make you feel like you’re having breakfast in the Mediterranean! The creamy feta on top is my favorite addition to this easy ham hash recipe!

I was originally inspired to create this delicious breakfast treat when my bestie Amy Black said “You have to try the pumpkin filled croissants at Starbucks!” I was immediately on board with this, but when I arrived at my beloved Starbucks, there were no pumpkin filled croissants, only pumpkin muffins, scones and bread.

I then remembered one of my favorite breakfast treats of all time…. Blueberry Pastry Delights and thought, I could basically do the same thing, but with pumpkin instead of blueberries.  Two weeks later, here we are… sitting in the middle of Pumpkin Pastry heaven!

You would never know from the abundance of recipes on the blog containing mushrooms, that I’m a recently converted mushroom fan.

That’s right, mushrooms were not my favorite vegetable just a couple of years ago. As I tried different varieties of mushrooms in a variety of dishes, I realized that I absolutely love them!

Gluten Free Cinnamon Rolls Recipe

While home for the holidays this year, I spent some time brainstorming gluten free breakfast ideas for Christmas morning.

Since finding out my brother was gluten intolerant over 3 years ago, our entire Christmas dinner has shifted to gluten-free. While we’ve now perfected the dinner menu,  we still hadn’t come up with the perfect gluten-free breakfast to start off Christmas day… that was until this year.

This year I made Gluten Free Maple Bacon Pancakes, and they were awesome! That being said, I still had some other ideas that I brainstormed before the holiday that I couldn’t just let slip under the rug, this recipe for Gluten Free Cinnamon Rolls being one of them.

Gluten Free Carrot Date Muffins

Gluten Free Carrot Date Muffins are dairy free & sugar free. They use honey, dates & olive oil instead of butter or sugar for a healthy, delicious muffin recipe!

Gluten Free Carrot Date Muffins

A muffin with no sugar, no butter and no gluten, sounds too healthy to be good, right?

Wrong!  I substituted natures own sweeteners, dates and honey for sugar, then switched out the butter for super flavorful olive oil.  For the gluten free flour I used Premium Gold’s blend of heart healthy whole grain and flax seed flours.

Carrot Date Muffin Recipe

The funny thing is, this whole “healthy muffin” originated from me being a total hippie and wanting to use the carrot pulp from my Carrot Orange Strawberry juice I made the morning before!

Carrot Date Muffin Recipe

Yes, I’ve been juicing every morning instead of drinking coffee!  No coffee?  What?  I know, I didn’t think it was possible to live without coffee in the morning (especially the first 2 days after going cold turkey on caffeine!)  But, fast forward 10 days and I’m going strong!

I’ve given myself a 30 day challenge to replace coffee with juicing.  Look for a post in a couple of weeks with the results of my challenge, and in the meantime follow me on Instagram Whitney Bond or Twitte: @Whitney_Bond to see what I’m juicing up this week!

Now back to those muffins!

  • 1 1/2 cups Premium Gold Gluten Free Flour

Lemon, Strawberry, Muffins, Recipe, Breakfast, Brunch, Food, Fruit

Before leaving on my Summer Adventure in May, my wonderful Mom purchased me a stoneware muffin pan at a Pampered Chef party she attended in Oklahoma.

Unfortunately I wasn’t able to use my new amazing kitchen gadget before I had to pack it into storage for the summer. I knew when I finally got settled in my new home in San Diego I wanted to bust that baby out and put it to work.

I decided to combine two of my favorite sweet and tart flavors into a muffin and thus the Lemon Berry Muffin was born. I ate a couple myself and delivered the rest to my dear friends in San Diego who let me borrow their hammer drill three times to get shelves, TV’s and art work on the walls (which are mostly composed of cement and metal studs) in my new place!

eggs, butter, flour, milk, sugar, salt, strawberries, lemon

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 25 minutes

Ingredients (makes 9 muffins)

  • 3 cups flour
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup butter (room temperature)
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 lemons (juice and zest)
  • 1/2 cup strawberries (sliced)

Start by combining the flour, baking powder and salt in a small mixing bowl.

Next combine the butter, sugar, milk and eggs, then add in the flour mixture.

Place in the oven at 350° for 25-30 minutes.  Remove when golden and cooked through.

The great thing about the stoneware is that the muffins cook evenly from top to bottom and slide out easily with no muffin liners needed.

This Saturday my friend hosted a girls brunch and shop-a-rama.  It’s an event where every girl brings a bag of clothes, jewelry, shoes, purses, etc. that they are no longer using and swaps with their friends for some new-to-you items.

Pair the swap shopping with brunch and mimosas and you’ve got a winning Saturday morning!

Being the resident food blogger I wanted to bring something fun and delicious to the brunch portion of the day.  I had these delicious little passion fruits from the farmers market just waiting to be eaten up!  I decided to turn them into mini muffins for the event.

I added poppy seeds to the muffin mix and used coconut milk instead of regular milk to add an extra touch of sweetness, I then topped the muffins with toasted coconut for a little crunch and a beautiful presentation!

The result was a sweet, tart, tropical muffin that was a hit at the swap-a-rama!

passionfruit, poppy seeds, muffins, coconut, recipe, vanilla, coconut milk, flour, sugar, eggs, butter

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes

Ingredients

  • 3 cups flour
  • 2 tbsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 cup coconut milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 4 large passion fruits
  • 1 tbsp poppy seeds
  • 1/4 cup shredded coconut

Start by combining the flour, baking powder and salt in a small bowl.

flour, baking powder, salt, mix, batter, muffins, recipe

In a large mixing bowl combine the butter and sugar with a hand mixer.

passionfruit, poppy seeds, muffins, mini, coconut, recipe, hand mixer, paddles

Or in my case attempt to use a hand mixer to combine the butter and sugar, then experience an epic fail when the $10 Toastmaster hand mixer you’ve been using for 9 years finally decides to bite-the-bullet, take-the-plunge, give up on mixing, pureeing and blending and die.

I’d like to take a minute to remember all the good times I’ve had with this hand mixer over the last decade… and I’m over it, off to Target to buy a new one!

Now back to the muffins. Next add in the eggs, vanilla and coconut milk.

passionfruit, poppy seeds, muffins, mini, coconut, recipe, eggs, milk

I literally hand-mixed the batter using the mixer paddles, but you may go right on ahead and electronically blend that together.

Next add in the flour mixture.

passionfruit, poppy seeds, muffins, butter, coconut milk, recipe, breakfast, batter, mix

Mix together well, then add the passion fruit and mix with a spatula.

Passionfruit is really easy to work with, you simply cut it down the middle, open it up and scoop all the pulp and seeds right into the batter.
