German Chocolate Banana Bread

Take banana bread to a whole new level with the German chocolate banana bread. Made with German chocolate cake mix, it couldn’t be easier.

As you know I like to celebrate obscure food holidays and today is no exception because today is National German Chocolate Cake Day. Although it may not be my first choice when it comes to dessert options I do enjoy a good German chocolate cake or a related dessert such as German chocolate brownies. Today’s recipe can be enjoyed for dessert or breakfast because it’s half banana bread, half German chocolate cake.

How did this come to be? Mashed bananas, pecans, and coconut are added along with the usual suspects to a box of German chocolate cake mix. After scooping the batter into a loaf pan I sprinkled more coconut and pecans halves on top. There may not be any of the signature German chocolate cake frosting involved but the flavor of the toasted pecans on top made up for it.

Carrot Cake Breakfast Cookies 1

Cookies for breakfast are even more acceptable when it’s cookies for brunch! These cookies were inspired by the “vegetable dessert” lovingly known as carrot cake. At first, it took a lot of restraint to not top these off with cream cheese icing, just like it’s dessert-cousin. In an effort to keep these breakfast cookies more breakfasty and less desserty, I topped half of them with shredded coconut (half without for the coconut haters). This small addition made all the difference, adding just the right amount of sweetness without being overbearing. And now you can start your day with cookies (without the guilt and/or judging eyes).

Halloween 7-Layer Bars

It’s the day before Halloween, which means you should be fully stocked with Halloween candy (unless you plan on turning off all your lights). I rarely get any trick-or-treaters so I don’t bother buying any extra candy because I can easily scrounge up some from my stocks for baking. It’s practically a requirement as a food blogger to have all kinds of stuff on hand at all times. Although I admit I was a food pack-rat even before I started this blog.

But if you did need to buy large amounts of candy in preparation for tomorrow and you happen to have purchased more Halloween candy than you needed, you should make these 7-layer bars! I used the pumpkin spice M&Ms and candy corn but you can easily substitute any of your favorite or leftover candies. Throw those snickers and Reese’s cups in there, you won’t be disappointed.
