9 Blog Recipes I Make Every Week

I’m a creature of habit.

I eat a lot of the same things every single week. When I like something, I like it. A lot and rarely get tired of it. I almost always have oatmeal (even when it’s 80 degrees with 100% humidity) or a big bowl of Greek yogurt, granola and fresh fruit for breakfast. Lunch is usually an Everything But the Kitchen Sink Salad (the best kind!) or leftovers from dinner the night before. Dinner is when things change a bit. We almost always have a pizza or taco night. Even my kid’s know the awesomeness of Taco Tuesday. Snacks are the same – a variation of a Stonyfield yogurt or a homemade bar/muffin/bread.

Don’t get me wrong, I like to try new recipes from friends, Pinterest and my favorite foodie blogs. But I have my staples. My favorites. Some are recipes that I have shared on HFM. Some are not. If you have ever wondered if bloggers that share recipes actually make their own recipes, I am here to tell you that – Yes, I absolutely do! Sometimes I post a recipe and it becomes part of weekly meal plan or snack list. But sometimes I post something and I never make it again. It’s not because it didn’t taste good, it just didn’t make it into the rotation. It happens! Like I said, I like what I like. I was inspired by this recent post to share my own favorites.

Here are 9 blog recipes that I make every week (or almost every week).


3 Ingredient Cookie Bites

This recipe is so simple and absolutely delicious. These are the perfect portable snacks for my kid’s lunches (and mine!), hiking or just to have in the fridge for a snack attack. Just a word of caution – they are very addicting. I recommend doubling the batch!

Blueberry Lemon Chia Seed Mini Muffins

I make these muffins quite often. Sometimes it’s blueberry. Sometimes it’s mixed berry. Sometimes it’s chocolate chip. But they are always, always delicious. And always, always gobbled up quickly.

Coconut Banana Muffins

Enjoy a grain free Coconut Banana Muffin as a healthy snack or a breakfast on the go. happyfitmama.com

It’s a rare that we have brown bananas in our house. But when we do, banana bread or these muffins are a top priority. And it makes your house smell ahhh-mazing while they are baking.

Easy Morning Glory Muffins

Super easy and delicious Morning Glory Muffins happyfitmama.com

I have been making these every single week for the past 4 months as part of my kid’s lunches. One bowl, grain free, a dose of veggies and no refined sugar – definitely a winning recipe!

Super Power Smoothie Bowl

Now that the weather is warming up, smoothie bowls are back in my life. The toppings are endless. And the best part is that it keeps me full for hours. Which to be honest, is really hard to do.

Roasted Corn Black Bean Soup

During the winter months, soup is a weekly standard. This recipe is a family favorite. It’s so easy to whip up on a busy weeknight to enjoy with some homemade cornbread.

4 Ingredient Pesto Zoodle Salad

Quick and easy Pesto Zoodle Salad happyfitmama.comI’m still on the Zoodles train and loving my spiralizer. In fact, this recipe is on my meal plan for this week but I’m adding shrimp to it. YUM!

Baked Broccoli Slaw Egg Rolls

A great recipe for a healthy version of a favorite take out food - Baked Broccoli Slaw Egg Rolls happyfitmama.com

This is one of Ron’s favorites. I love it too. It’s the perfect recipe that has the take out taste but is so much better for you. We sometimes make this the main meal or will pair it as an appetizer for Peanutty Noodle Chicken Stir Fry.

Kale Blueberry Superfood Salad

This recipe is great all year ’round but is even better during the summer. Why? Fresh kale, cucumbers from the garden and wild blueberries make it 10x better. And don’t forget to massage your kale!

  1. Oh I must make those broccoi slaw rolls as EVERYONE HERE has the penchant for fast food and will probably admit to being tired of my healthy offerings ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. I’m the same way – once I find a recipe I love I make it over and over again. Now I alternate between my banana bread muffins and baked oatmeal.

  3. I’m STILL trying to make those morning glory muffins but now, I actually do have brown bananas so I may just do the coconut banana ones!! SO many choices and thank you because I need some serious dinner ideas for this week and next!

  4. Yes, I have become a creature of habit too! I used to experiment so much more but I have no idea how I found the time and motivation. I think kids have a lot to do with the change. Thanks for this awesome round up!

  5. So many delicious recipes! We have our staples too but try to mix up flavors but still we go with the ol faithfuls! The cookie bites, smoothie bowls, and muffins (or breakfast cookies, mini donuts) would be ones at the top of our list too!

    Thank you for linking up with us for Meatless Monday!

  6. I love making the 3 ingredient cookie bites. I usually throw in some extra ingredients like chia or flax seeds. It baffles me how many people still buy granola bars that are full of sugar and other additives when it’s so easy to make your own at home.

    1. You can absolutely freeze the muffins. If I’m being super efficient and make more than one batch or variety at a time, I’ll freeze half. They are great warmed up in the microwave for a few seconds or left to defrost on their own.
