Need I say more?
If you are anything like me. You have very little control when it comes to baking. Greattttttt- my day job is baking 😀 I get the question a lot- how do you not weigh a zillion pounds if you are always making stuff? Well- it’s been really really hard and I think I’m getting the hang of it.
I enjoy making single serve dessert recipes, because I get to indulge and not feel bad, because I literally made a single serving…instead of accidentally eating 6 cookies. It’s happened. Plus- Blake hates dessert, so if an entire batch of brownies gets devoured after a few days…we all know who the culprit is 😀
Ashley from Edible Perspective inspired me to make this recipe after I saw her Deep Dish Single Serve Chocolate Chip Cookie. <3 her.
This recipe calls for simple ingredients. It’s…
- Gluten free
- Perfectly sweet

I am pretty excited about my new finds from Crate and Barrel. The mini cast iron pans were $9.99 each. The colored plates (they are smaller) were $2.99 each and the cute little chalk board container was $3.99 (I got 2). I just realized that I used all of my new props in these photos. Whoops… I was going to try and space them out a bit 😀
Confession- I probably rewrote “oats” 12 times. I’m just not a fan of my own handwriting. I never have been 😀 That’s why in 4th grade when we had typing class…I was the fastest typer in my whole grade! BOOM.
Question for you (because I’m curious)- Do you ever make single serving desserts? Or do you think they are a waste of time and would rather make a recipe that had more servings?
