Guest Blogger: Ashley from Whole Foods New Body

I have a fantastic guest for you today! Ashley from Whole Foods New Body is joining us today to share a new clean eating recipe! I found Ashley's blog and was thrilled to learn about her journey toward health - without eating all the fake junk!  Make sure you visit her site and check out some of her amazing recipes (like a Skinny Chick-fil-a Peach Milkshake or Skinny Triple Chocolate Dessert Pizza).  Here's one she has for you today...
 Hey guys!! Let me introduce myself!! My name is Ashley and I blog over at Whole Foods New Body. Allison was kind enough to ask me to guest blog on Allison's Skinny Jeans! We both have a love for REAL food. I can always appreciate a girl that likes to cook with real ingredients and avoid artificial sweeteners!

 I eat mainly a "clean"diet. What that means is that I try to eat unprocessed whole foods the majority of the time. There is a little wiggle room when I allow myself to have a treat or a splurge!! Everyone needs those every now and then! I also love to share my favorite workouts and fitness tips!!

Let me tell you about this DELICIOUS bread I made the other day! WOW! So good!! I grew up eating my Grandmother's Blackberry Cobbler. It was my favorite dessert growing up! I haven't had it in years but I remember the taste for sure! I wanted to make a healthier version that I could enjoy everyday without feeling guilty! This bread is great for breakfast, snack or dessert!! I even like to smear a little all natural peanut butter on it! So good!!

Wanna slice??

Clean Eating Blackberry Cobbler Bread

  • 2 cups oat flour (place 2 cups of oats in processor and pulse until flour consistency)
  • 1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 cup of maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup plain non-fat Greek yogurt (I used Chobani)
  • 1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
  • 1 cup fresh blackberries (slightly smashed)
Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees.

Combine all ingredients in a medium sized bowl and stir until thoroughly combined. Place in loaf pan sprayed with olive oil or coconut oil spray. 

Bake for 50 minutes to 1 hour or until golden brown and toothpick comes out clean!

**This is great cold or warm! Store in the refrigerator in airtight container.**

If you don't like blackberries or just love this and want to try another version....Try my Clean Eating Strawberry Banana Bread. It is equally as delicious!
