Healthy Everything Bagels + Sunday Prep

Happy Sunday W+A friends! It was a frigid weekend filled with freezing temps, but overall we had a great few days (including snow days) to relax and get some food shopping done. I've been saving a few recipes up for some weekend trial and error attempts, but we tried our hands at some healthy everything bagels and they came out SO good! I know you see a lot of our indulgent eats on Whiskey + Aprons Instagram and Facebook pages, but believe it or not John and I eat very healthy during the week and save our splurges for the weekend. Sunday mornings call for bagels so we figured we'd attempt to whip up a guilt free version right in our very own kitchen. The recipe calls for only five ingredients and was super easy. Here's everything you'll need for the bagels.


Ingredients (yields two bagels)

1/2 c of self rising flour (we used Pilsbury)
1/2 c of nonfat greek yogurt (drained) 
2 tbsp of Trader Joe's Everything But the Bagel Seasoning (or whatever topping you like)
pinch of salt 
2 tbsp of egg whites 


Directions 

Mix together 1/2 cup of flour and 1/2 cup of nonfat yogurt in a bowl. Add a pinch of salt to mixture. The dough will be a bit crumbly until you knead it. Add four to your surface and hands and knead into a ball, dividing into two pieces. Roll both pieces into logs, about 6 inches long. Bring both sides together and pinch in the middle forming a circle. Base the bagels with an egg wash and top with seasoning. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or foil. If using foil spray with a little nonstick spray. Back on 350 degrees for 20 minutes. For the last two minutes increase heat to 500 and bake until golden brown. Remove from oven and let cool for five minutes before removing from baking sheet. If your making extras for the week, package in a ziplock bag and refrigerate until you decide to reheat or come to room temperature. 


Roll into 6 inch logs


Shape into bagels and pinch at the top


The finished product came out perfect. We taste tested one and it even cut down the center like a regular bagel. Add some butter, cream cheese or make an egg sandwich. We definitely will be using this easy dough for pizzas and other breakfast recipes in the future. We kept the baking going with some delicious pumpkin cinnamon chocolate chip carrot cake muffins. I've posted this recipe a few posts back and its still one of our go tos for a healthy breakfast, dessert or snack options during the week. Check out the recipe here. We will be posting a lot more of our recipes on here to come. Make sure to check back and share with your family and friends. Have a wonderful start to the week friends + family! xx

Air Fryer Wings + Bacon Brussel Sprouts

We love using the air fryer for "frying" up some of our favorite dishes. From chicken parmesan to veggie fries and most recently bagels and empanadas, the options are endless. So we decided to try out wings this time around. It was the perfect meal for some Sunday football enjoyment. We also roasted up some crispy brussel sprouts with bacon and a cranberry balsamic drizzle for a complete meal. Here's everything you'll need for this dish: 


Ingredients (for wings) 1 lb of chicken wings or drumsticks  1 c of nonfat greek yogurt  3 tbsp of paprika  1 tbsp of oregano  1 tsp salt  1 tsp pepper  Juice of 1/2 a lemon  1 c of Kentucky Kernel seasoned flour  1 c of hot wing sauce (Frank's or your favorite hot sauce)
Directions Mix together yogurt and lemon juice with all seasonings and spoon into a ziplock bag. Add chicken and let marinate for at least 4 hours. In a flat plate evenly spread out your seasoned flour and dredge your wings in both sides. Make sure to preheat your air frye…

Almond Poppy Seed + Lemon Loaf

Happy Spring? Yes,  the question mark is needed since we had snow on Long Island today and its April second! I'd say about six inches total, but we were happy to see the sun appear and melt some of it away. We started on some yard work this week and were getting the itch to start doing some planting, but luckily we held out for now. Snow days are always the best days to test out a new recipe and typically we like to try our hands at baking on these chilly days. We just received some of Kodiak Cake's new Almond Poppy Seed Power Cakes Flapjack + Waffle mix. We decided to use this delicious mix for some baking and the results turned out absolutely delicious. Here's everything you will need: 


Ingredients 3 cups of Kodiak Mix  1/2 cup of nonfat Greek yogurt 1 tsp vanilla extract  1 tsp of baking powder  3 eggs, beaten  4 tbsp of unsalted butter, softened  1/3 cup of brown sugar  3/4 cup of unsweetened vanilla almond milk  3 tbsp of lemon zest  1/8 cup of lemon juice 
Ingredients (glaze) 1/2…

Slow Cooker Honey Parmesan Pork Roast

We made it to hump day! As I currently sip my coffee this morning, I have a batch of banana coconut chocolate chip energy bites (recipe to come) for a little after dinner or post gym snack baking in the oven. We had a pork loin in the fridge big enough to feed a small country so we decided to cut it and make three separate meals for the week. I typically roast my pork in the oven Cuban style and add some roasted potatoes, but I figured I could set it and forget it with this easy and DELICIOUS recipe below. I'm not embarrassed to admit that John and I pretty much polished off almost the entire pork loin. Here is everything you'll need to make slow cooker honey Parmesan pork roast: 


Ingredients 3 to 4 lbs of pork loin roast 2 tbsp dried oregano 2 tbsp dried basil 1/2 tsp black pepper 3/4 tsp salt 2 tbsp garlic, minced 1/2 c honey 2 tbsp olive oil 1/4 c soy sauce 2/3 cup Parmesan cheese, grated

Directions Place pork loin in slow cooker. In a medium bowl, combine the dried oregano, dried basil…
