Microwave Banana French Toast Sticks!

  • ✅2 slices whole wheat bread (cut into sticks)

Mix everything but the bread. Dip the sticks into the liquid, being careful to cover the entire stick before placing into the mug (or bowl or whatever).

5 Ingredient Energy Bites!

Looking for an energy bar that doesn’t have a zillion ingredients and tastes good? Look no further!

These are super quick to make, can be stored anywhere, and taste like a Reese’s cup!

You can make as much as you want, but here’s how I made them:

2 cups quick oats (I used Quaker)

¾ cup of honey

1 cup of peanut butter (you might need to add more depending on the amount of oats you use; you can also use any kind of nut butter)

A few shakes of salt

Dark chocolate chips (who measures chocolate…pshh)

Add the oats and peanut butter first, then add the salt, honey, and the chips last. It can get hard to mix with a spoon, so feel free to use your hands!

Once all of the ingredients are thoroughly mixed, you can roll them up like I did or make them flat like bars. They will last about a week and can also be put in the freezer. 

Feel free to use whatever ingredients you want…throw in some raisins, flax seed, wheat germ…whatever you feel like!

Let me know if you tried them!


The Dorm Dietitian

Minute Kitchen episode 4 is here! It’s back to school time so this week I decided to take a request for an easy, healthy, dorm ready recipe and this is it! The great thing about this dish, besides being vegan and gluten free, is that all you need to make it is a microwave and a cutting surface! The jars are totally customizable to your favorite veggies and will last about a week in the fridge so make them ahead and you’ll have amazing grab & go meals every day!

Each jar is 353 calories, 13g fat, 48 carbs, and 14g protein.

Mediterranean Quinoa Jars- vegan, gf, & dorm room ready!

It’s back to school time and you asked for a dorm friendly meal so here’s my favorite! All you need is a microwave & cutting surface. I recommend checking out the local farmer’s market for the cheapest (and freshest!) produce then making these the same day. They should last about a week in the fridge! Of course you can customize them to have your own favorite veggies- this is ESPECIALLY good with oven roasted veggies if you have access to an oven! Best of all these jars are vegan, gluten free, and taste great at any temperature so go ahead and grab it on the run!

MAKE SURE you put the dressing at the bottom and quinoa on top so that it doesn’t absorb the dressing! Using less absorbent ingredients like peppers, onions, & tomatoes at the bottom will help prevent this.

Typed out ingredients & directions are on the youtube page here.

Mug cake-ish?
I was gonna try making aubernutter’s mug cake… But I didn’t really have a bunch of things I needed so I had to get reeeaal creative haha.

½ cup oatmeal
1 cup water
1 banana mashed (w a fork)
1 egg
1 tbsp peanut butter
¼ cup plain yogurt

I didn’t have a blender to blend up the oats to make it that flour-like texture so I ended up microwaving the oats with a ton of water and ket microwaving it until the oats got super soft. Probably like 4 minutes to evaporate all the water. And then I didn’t have cottage cheese so I was like ehh yogurt + oatmeal is one of my favorite combos so let’s do this!

Anyways, I mixed the oatmeal and water and microwaved for about 4 minutes. I then mixed in the egg and whipped it up. And then I mixed in the yogurt. I then microwaved for 3 more minutes.

I took it out and covered it with more yogurt and drizzled peanut butter on top! It turned out fantastic- thanks Aubrey!
