Pumpkin Spice Oat Bakes

Baking pumpkin spiced oats in a muffin tin produces neat little cylinders of pumpkin oat goodness that are just as good cold as they are warm from the oven. Try them with a dollop of vanilla yogurt and a drizzle of maple syrup, or a spoonful of your favorite fruit spread.

Misozuke (Miso Pickles)

These pickles are made with a Japanese pickling mixture and are a great new way to enjoy fermented veggies! You can easily add daikon, cabbage, and carrots. 

Oven-Baked Parmesan Zucchini Fries

Oven baking at a high temperature gives these “fries” a crunchy, crispy, browned coating that is just as satisfying as if they were fried. 

Peach and Strawberry Bruschetta

Enjoy the flavors of summer with this quick appetizer. Perfect for a picnic or potluck.

No-Bake Apricot Cashew Energy Bars

Slice these energy-packed snacks into bite-sized cubes instead of bars, and package in individual reusable snack bags for a mid-afternoon pickme-up. Substitute dried figs, dates or cherries for the apricots if you prefer.

Creamy Avocado & White Bean Wrap

White beans mashed with ripe avocado and blended with sharp cheddar makes an incredibly rich, flavorful filling for this wrap. Soak dried beans overnight or use beans from a can. 

Lemon Curd

With this recipe, you’re not limited to lemons. Try making a fruit curd with lime, tangerine, or even mango. Use on top of scones, as a filling for a tart, or on top of plain yogurt for a tangy snack.
