Every time I turn around I see yet another "super easy" recipe with "only 3 ingredients" or that is "super easy" on Facebook.  They tell you to "tag yourself so you have this recipe."  The problem is that 1 of those 3 ingredients is usually something like a cake mix... which to me equals about 15 ingredients all on its own!  I really just want to post... in all CAPS... STOP IT!  DON'T DO IT!  But I try to be really polite on Facebook and I know that some people can and want to eat that stuff.  So instead I have finally decided that the best way to combat that is to post this blog with some "super easy" recipes!  Some are 3 ingredients and some are more.  But none of them take long and all of them are awesome.  I am only posting those which I have personally tested so can attest to the ease and the flavor.

So HURRY!  TAG YOURSELF or SHARE THIS so you can keep these recipes handy!  :-)

First, though, have you ever made ice cream from frozen bananas?  If not, you are depriving yourself of an awesome treat.  You can essentially dress this recipe up any way you want, with pretty much any flavors you like.  You don't get a strong banana flavor, unless you make banana ice cream.  You can get a Yonana Maker, which is a pretty handy tool to have, or you can even do it in your food processor.  Every time you have some overripe bananas, just peel them, lay them out on a plate or cookie sheet and freeze.  Once they are frozen, throw them into an airtight container and keep them in the freezer until you are ready for them.  So easy to just take out as many bananas as you need.  I can even buy overripe bananas at the grocery store for a discounted price.  As long as the peels aren't slimy, I'm in!  (I am.. um... frugal like that!)

Banana Berry Ice Cream
2 bananas, frozen
1 oz. dark chocolate
3/4 cup frozen mixed berries

Whiz the ingredients together in your food processor or Yonanas maker.  Done.  Keep leftovers (if there are any!) in the freezer.

Mudslide Fudge Cookies (grain free)
Not very many ingredients, and you likely have them in your house.  Where it says raw honey, I actually just use whatever honey I have.  It's up to you whether the ingredients need to be organic.

Chunky Chocolate Cookies
Don't eat these right away.... allow them to set up after they come out of the oven so they aren't as crumbly.

Cinnamon Raisin Braids
These take a little more time, but mostly to give the dough time to raise.  The real ease comes when you make the dough and freeze some of it for use later!  I personally can't wait and have to make them all at once.  These are so good, your family will not know they are eating healthy!

Peach Cobbler!

MR's Famous Peach Cobbler
My husband truly makes the world's greatest peach cobbler.  Just because we changed to a clean eating lifestyle, was no reason to give it up!  I was eating, cleaned up or not!  When peach season rolled around this year, has attempted to clean it up.  And came up with TWO awesome wins!  You can follow the directions at the link, or you can sub 1/2 cup of honey for the coconut sugar.  Either way works just fine.  This stuff is especially good eaten warm with a little almond milk over it... or maybe make some banana berry ice cream (above) and serve it with it.  Also, you can throw in a handful of blueberries with the peaches!!

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Larabars
I love larabars for a snack or a treat.  There are multiple ways to make them.  This recipe is a good one, but has lots of other ones too.  Check them out!

So now... do you really want to make a dessert that starts with a cake mix?!  Not when there are so many better options around!!!!  Go ahead, enjoy!!!!
