Happy Almost-New Year, everyone!

As is our annual tradition here on the blog, I’ve rounded up two delicious collections of recipes to share with you — your favorite recipes from 2018 (today’s post), and some of my own personal faves (coming soon).  There was plenty of overlap here, of course. ♡  But I have to say, I’m so pleased that you guys fell in love with these particular recipes!

From the cozy quinoa chili that swept Pinterest, to the mug cake that changed all of our lives, to the blender pancakes that I can’t stop making, to tuna salad, healthy muffins and tacos, cookies and salsa — I love that these recipes were such a hit in your homes too.  It’s been a delicious year around here for sure.

Banana Oat Blender Pancakes | “I love these pancakes!!! I’ve been making them for a few months now, and my picky toddler LOVES them too! I made them today, and didn’t have eggs so I used 2 tbsp of chia seeds mixed with 2/3 cup of water, as a replacement and the pancakes turned out really great!! And they were a good vegan option 🙂 they were a bit thicker than when I use eggs so I just add some more almond milk and whala! Thanks so much for the great recipe!” -Kimberly

Gluten Free Banana Oat Waffles | “This is an excellent recipe and has become my ‘go to’. You feel satiated after eating but not yucky full. The banana helps give some nutritional base so you’re not hungry in a half hour after just eating carbs. I’ve subbed a plantain for the banana and and added cardamom & it’s been great. I’ve also used a mix of other flours instead of the oat and it’s been excellent (blue corn, sorghum, millet) as well. The recipe is great as is and is also able to be successfully tinkered with.” -Jen
