Ginger Plum Breakfast Parfait

Ginger Plum Overnight Oatmeal Breakfast Parfaits ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #makeahead #breakfast #recipe

My stomach needs time to “wake up” in the morning before I eat, so for me I need an easy option to bring with me to work that I can eat while I’m working. I get bored with the same old same old breakfast routine so I need to switch it up a bit every […]

Strawberry Ginger Oat Scones

Strawberry Ginger Oat Scones ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #healthy #scone #recipe

Adapted from Cookin Canuck I made these scones when we were up at my parents’ place last time. We didn’t coordinate very well on who was bringing what and found ourselves with an over-abundance of fresh strawberries. So I was tasked with using up some of the strawberries. I debated over several berry recipes, but […]

Adapted from My New Roots’ Life Changing Loaf of Bread It was a little over a week ago when my friend at work emailed us a link to this very interesting recipe entitled: “The Life Changing Loaf of Bread.” I was immediately intrigued.

Gluten Free Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bars ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #dessert #recipe

Adapted slightly from Hungry Healthy Girl I was craving something pumpkin and chocolate and so I sat down at my computer to do some searching to see if I could find “just the right thing” to make. I didn’t set out to make something gluten free, but when I chanced upon  this recipe from  Hungry Healthy […]


Lemon Cardamon Pear Crisp

Lemon Cardamom Pear Crisp ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #dessert #recipe

I hope you’re not tired of pear recipes yet, because I still have a couple beauties I want to share with you.  I tried browning the butter for this crisp and I liked the taste of it, but it does change the texture of the topping. If you want your crisp to be more like […]

Double Chocolate Oatmeal Zucchini Cookies ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #cookie #recipe

Adapted from Very Best Baking Do you ever get serious chocolate cravings? Like nothing is going to satisfy them but something REALLY good and REALLY chocolatey?

Mulberry Maple Oatmeal Bread ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #bread #recipe

with honey berry cheese spread My beautiful mulberry tree made the biggest, juiciest, blackest, most gorgeous and delicious berries ever this year! I picked 2 1/2 big ice cream pails full of berries before it even slowed down and was absolutely reveling in all the wonderful berries. I had berries in my yogurt, berries in […]


Cherry Vanilla Overnight Oatmeal Yogurt Cup

Cherry Vanilla Overnight Oatmeal ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #oatmeal #recipe

Adapted just slightly from The Fountain Avenue Kitchen This is oatmeal like you’ve never experienced before. It’s unbelievably creamy, nothing like the hot cooked oatmeal I’m used to. And it’s so simple! You just stir it together the night before and pour into a jar for breakfast on the go the next morning. I was […]


Berry Rhubarb Baked Oatmeal Crumble

Adapted from Nutmegs, seven. I’m re-posting this recipe because it got scrambled in the blog move. Is this baked oatmeal breakfast or dessert? I styled it like a dessert, with a pouf of whipped cream on top because it TASTES like a decadent fruity dessert, a lovely warm fruity crumble with a crunchy topping and a […]


Chocolate Covered Strawberry Breakfast Bake

Chocolate Covered Strawberry Breakfast Bake ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #breakfast #recipe

Adapted from Gourmatine Blog Strawberries and chocolate baked up in a sweet breakfast bake filled with healthy oats and sweetened with honey and cinnamon. I’ve made similar breakfast bakes before.

Peanut Butter Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #healthy #cookie #recipe

Pumpkin Chai Apricot Granola … & Interval Training

Pumpkin Chai Granola with Apricots ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #chai #granola #recipe

I’ve discovered a secret … okay, it’s not a great epiphany or anything, but I’ve found a way to motivate myself to exercise on the weekends when I’d much rather relax, cook a lot of wonderful tasting things, hang out with my foodie friends (in person and/or online) and drink tea and wine. See, here’s […]


Ooey Gooey Oreo Toffee 7-Layer Bars

Ooey Gooey Oreo Toffee 7 Layer Bars ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #oreo #toffee #recipe

I DO usually try to stay fairly healthy in the kitchen, but this recipe is an exception. I’ve seen quite a few 7-Layer bar recipes popping up around the internet foodie circles lately and it made me think of that huge bag of Oreo cookie crumbs I have here … hmmm, wouldn’t Oreos make a […]


Strawberry Peach Pecan Baked Oatmeal Crumble

Strawberry Peach Pecan Baked Oatmeal Crumble ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #baked #peach #oatmeal #recipe

This baked oatmeal crumble is almost like a peach crisp with pecans, but with a bit more substance. Sweet, fruity, and delicious enough to be eaten for dessert, but hearty and healthy enough to eat for breakfast. Ice cream is wonderful with it, but if you want a healthier breakfast option, try topping it with […]


Kumquat Cranberry Pecan Granola

Kumquat Cranberry Pecan Granola

A crunchy sweet granola with a bit of citrus zing from the kumquats and the tart-sweet chewy taste of craisins. Usually when I make granola, I use some sort of fruit puree in it (like applesauce and one time I used strawberry sauce). I have an abundance of kumquats this winter, though, and I couldn’t […]


Chocolate Peanut Butter Oatmeal Crumble Bars

It makes for a quite healthy breakfast (or dessert for that matter!) because it’s full of fruit, fiber, and […]


Maple Spice Pumpkin Cranberry Granola

Maple Spice Pumpkin Granola ~ www.SumptuousSpoonfuls.com

  Eeek! I’m so excited! I did it … I finally got my own domain, my own home for my blog. I’ve been researching, thinking, dreaming of what I could do if I only had a REAL site of my own. Today I took the plunge and just did it. It really wasn’t as hard […]


Pumpkin Apricot Oatmeal Pie

Pumpkin Apricot Oatmeal Pie

If you bake it in a pie pan, it’s a pie, right? I am naming this a Pumpkin Apricot Oatmeal Pie to distinguish it from the mushy stuff you usually think of as oatmeal. Don’t get me wrong: I love a hot steamy bowl of oatmeal, but this definitely doesn’t have that soft mushy texture […]
