Healthy Spring Baking Recipes

April 22, 2020

Spring has sprung here in Northern California! Everyday I’m so grateful for the sun, the new blooms and even the rain. Not so much the seasonal allergies but hey – I still love this time of year! This year, the baking itch has hit me harder than usual. Maybe it’s the fact that we’re all spending more time at home or maybe it’s the fact that baking brings me comfort. I love creating in the kitchen and the treats that come out of it don’t hurt either…So buckle up and let the spring baking begin!

13 Healthy Spring Baking Recipes

1. Oatmeal Carrot Cake {Gluten-free}

this one is dedicated to C whose favorite dessert is carrot cake! This cake recipe has a fun twist using oat flour but trust me on this – it’s delicious!

2. Lemon Poppyseed Pancakes

3. Blueberry Coconut Baked Oatmeal

If you haven’t made baked oatmeal before, you need to start now! You can prep it in advance and have healthy breakfasts all week long.

Change up your breakfast game with this Blueberry Coconut Baked Oatmeal. An easy, vegan, breakfast option that you can bake ahead of time for weekday breakfasts or fresh for a fancy weekend brunch.

4. Healthy Avocado Brownies

Did you know that avocados have a season? Most people forget this because the abundance of avocados from Mexico through the winter months makes it feel like avocados are always in season, but avocados in the USA actually have a peak season beginning in May. So get your spring baking going with these delicious (and healthy!) avocado brownies.

5. Oatmeal Banana Peanut Butter Muffins

Okay fine, bananas aren’t in season for spring BUT I’d guess you probably have a stockpile of old, brown bananas in your freezer! Well what better time to pull them out then the beginning of spring?! Trust me, these banana peanut butter muffins will make you swoon.
