Pumpkin Popcorn

September 24, 2017

Disclaimer: If you’re not the biggest fan of pumpkin, then you should probably stop reading right now and not come back to this blog until springtime rolls around, because I’m going to be bombarding y’all with tons and tons of pumpkin recipes this season. If you’re not the biggest fan of fall in general, then I’m sorry… we can’t be friends. Continue Reading

Almond Brownies

August 13, 2017

al•mond brown•ies: (n) a square of nutty, chocolatey goodness, where one bite takes you to a world of crunchy, fudgey, gluten free heaven, leaving you wanting more. In other words, these are not your average brownies.

First of all, let’s get a couple things straight. I’ve raved over so so so many chocolate flavor pairings before (y’all know my unconditional love for chocolate), namely peanut butter and chocolate. Oh, and we can’t forget about the raspberry/chocolate and pistachio/chocolate combos. But almonds and chocolate? Ho-ly crud. You’d expect it to taste similar to the peanut butter and chocolate, but the natural flavor and crunch from the almonds with the smooth, chewy texture of the brownie is something entirely different. For real! I can’t explain it… they’re just sooooo good! Continue Reading

5 Ingredient Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies

5 ingredient chocolate peanut butter cookies - My Southern Sweet Tooth

Treat yo’ self is a motto that I live by on a daily basis, no joke. Chances are, if my sweet tooth cravings kick in, I’m gonna tell myself, “hey, just treat yo’ self!” This girl has no self control. The thing is, since I’m always craving sweets, somehow I gotta make sure I’m not eating too much sugar, right?

That’s where these 5 ingredient (!!!) chocolate peanut butter cookies come into play.

I’ve realized that even though chocolate and peanut butter are my all-time favorite food combos, I’ve only really done one post featuring them! These choc pb cookies are healthy. Crunchy. Chocolate-and-peanut-butter-y. All they y’s. Best of all, they’re only 5 ingredients! Actually, they’re technically six ingredients, but salt doesn’t count. Peanut butter, cocoa, an egg, honey, baking powder, and salt, then bake and eat. Ready to be devoured in a couple minutes’ time. You know what that means? MORE SWEETS FOR ME.

I have a problem. And I’m willing to admit it, because heyyy girl, TREAT YO SELF! Continue Reading

Coconut Lime Granola Muffins

Coconut Lime Granola Muffins - My Southern Sweet Tooth

You guys… this is by far one of the most genius recipes I’ve come up with. Just imagine: key lime pie, crunchy granola, and a sweet, fluffy muffin. That’s basically what these coconut lime granola muffins are: a key-lime pie, transformed into muffin form, topped with crunchy coconut granola and packed with summery, citrusy flavors.Best part? They’re health-ified and gluten free.

They can be a quick, grab-and-go breakfast, afternoon snack, or even dessert! Hey, I’d even eat them for dinner. Not kidding, these are that good.

Oh! And I’m bringing back the good ol’ recipe videos (woo-hoo!) I’m really really trying to be consistent with these, seriously. Even though I haven’t even attempted to make another one since my carrot cake bread post back in April, one of my goals this summer was to make more videos. Summer’s over half way over and this is the first one I’ve made😂 It’s all about the baby steps, I guess. Enjoy!

July 4, 2017

Fireworks, cool summer nights by the lake, makeup sweating off my face… Happy happy fourth of july, friends! Today I’m making these dense, fudgey s’mores brownies. And they’re a teeeeeny bit healthier than your average brownie (just a smidge). Because is there any better way to celebrate America’s 200+ birthday, than with these oh-so-decadent s’mores brownies? If so, tell me ASAP, because your girl seriously wants to know.

Strawberry Peach Crumble

June 30, 2017

It’s hard to believe that the last day #cookoutweek is finally upon us. This entire week, I’ve had so much fun coming up with yummy, summer-themed recipes, and being able to collaborate with some pretty cool food bloggers. I’ve covered a delicious classic tomato bruschetta appetizer, green grilled pizza entreé, and finally, I’m sharing a strawberry peach crumble for dessert! Cobblers/crisps/crumbles have been super trendy this summer (well, basically every summer), and I’m completely loving it. Baked to bubbly, golden brown perfection, this crumble is the dessert for any outdoor summer get together.

Chocolate Pistachio Ice Cream Sandwiches - My Southern Sweet Tooth

Now, I’m not going to deny that I have a lil’ bit of an obsession with the chocolate pistachio power combo. Who wouldn’t?? The crunchy, salty pistachios pair perfectly with the dark n’ sweet chocolate, and I’m also totally digging the earthy green and brown colors of these sweet treats. What’s not to love about that? Oh yeah, do yourself a huge favor and scroll down to the bottom of this post, so you can treat yourself with these chocolate pistachio ice cream sandwiches (c’mon, do it. right. now.)

Healthy Lemon Blueberry Donuts

June 2, 2017

Is there really anything better than a freshly baked, lemon blueberry donut? These are baked to soft, fluffy perfection, sweetened with golden-delicious honey, and bursting with bunches of citrusy goodness. Also, there’s the fact that it’s the first day of summer, and National Donut Day. Coincidence? I think not… just the little bit of magic life throws at us every now and then. Today, that magic is in the form of these dangerously enticing lemon blueberry donuts.

But really, though. I’m obsessed.

The Best Apple Turnovers

May 26, 2017

It’s memorial day weekend, and of course it’s another excuse for me to make something apple pie themed. As you can tell by the recipe title, of course, I ended up making these mouth watering apple turnovers! Because apple pie has been around in America for quite a while, it’s been a traditional recipe that most people associate with USA holidays. In fact, in the first blog post I ever wrote on My Southern Sweet Tooth (which, sadly, doesn’t exist anymore), I mentioned one of my all time favorite cookbooks ever: The Good Housekeeping Illustrated Cookbook.

While I was flipping through the cookbook, I happened to stumble upon a beautiful apple turnovers recipe. Naturally, I had to put my own, slightly healthier twist on it (but only slightly). In these apple turnovers, I implemented coconut oil, whole wheat flour, and honey instead of sugar. As always, feel free to replace with those ingredients with anything you’d like.

I’m going to have to admit, these past couple of weeks have been crazy for me, so I’d like to apologize for being gone for for so long. Finals week is coming up in just a few days, we’ve been having some end-of-the-year festivities, and I’ve been completely swamped with afterschool activities. After summer starts (!!!), I’ll be posting way more consistently.

Apple Peanut Butter Baked Oatmeal

April 27, 2017

Ever since I posted a picture on Instagram a while ago of my favorite oatmeal recipe, I’ve been eating it almost every day in the mornings. It’s super quick, healthy, and what’s not to love about apples and peanut butter? It’s one of my all-time favorite food combinations, and putting it into my morning oats is absolutely amazing. I was on Pinterest the other day, and I found this snickerdoodle baked oatmeal from The Seasoned Mom. The idea of baking oatmeal and having it for breakfast in little bars is genius. After reading her blog post, I honestly can’t remember how I lived without it. How did it never occur to me to make oatmeal in baked form until now? Thank goodness for Pinterest!
