Banana bread, I’m pretty sure, is the ultimate reason bananas exist on the planet. Whenever you see bananas go soft and freckly, banana bread is the answer.

The recipes in this blog are not particularly focused towards gluten-free or vegan recipes, but I’m always dabbling in the waters of clean cooking/baking. And I do love it when I can make something vegan and gluten-free that is totally undetectable. If no one can tell that it’s either vegan or gluten-free (let alone both)

This stir-and-bake frittata recipe is so easy to make, its a no-brainer. Best part about making frittata is that you can throw in whatEver you have left in your fridge and it will turn out delicious. I’m on my Whole30 diet, so have not added cheese which is a main part of frittatas. I don’t
