Dairy-free buckwheat banana bread! It is way tastier than it looks 😉 I was out of regular flour so modified a traditional banana bread recipe... using buckwheat flour, nixing the added sugar and adding frozen blueberries plus a variety of seeds and nuts I had in my pantry. Pre-quarantine I would typically just eat a protein bar for breakfast but having fresh banana bread instead has been a nice treat!

Key Lime Pie-- a delicious treat! I had never made this before, but it was so good I'm sure I will make another one soon.

Keeping with the banana theme: we made Banana-chocolate-oatmeal cookies. All of the ingredients are in the name: Bananas, chocolate chips, and oats.

I've been trying out flourless recipes since I'm limiting my trips to the store and flour has not always been readily available. These were a cinch to make and healthy too!
