When I asked you guys over on Instagram if you'd like to see a list of the top ten most popular recipes in 2017 on Milk & Honey Nutrition, the answer was a resounding YES! And just a few observations... you guys love chocolate, cookies, and avocados! So, here you have it, the recipes you guys viewed the most this year...
Note: I will update this over the next few days if things change. The top five especially were VERY close and I'll be interested to see if they change at all!
10. Avocado Frozen Hot Chocolate
This is one of my favorite smoothie recipes I've ever done and is a great way to get some anti-inflammatory fats in before you start your day... and who doesn't love an excuse to make an avocado rose??
9. Chocolate Chip Snowball Cookies
This recipe was sponsored by Sprouts Farmer's Market, and was basically my excuse to experiment baking with ghee. They are a classic cookie and if you love coconut and butter-y flavors mixed together... you'll LOVE these.
8. Vegan High Protein Fudge Brownies
These were an instant favorite, and appeaIed to so many different interests: vegan, high fiber, high protein, gluten free, low sugar, no added sugar, and I could keep going. I have a feeling they would have been higher on the list, if I'd posted them earlier in the year.
7. Avocado Cacao Mousse
Yet another avocado and chocolate combo you guys seem to be really into! This mousse is the creamiest most delicious thing you've ever put in your mouth, I promise! You can make it with maple syrup or date paste... you choose. Not a lot of sugar (just 2 Tbsp of either in the whole recipe), and lots of satisfying and filling fats!
5. High Protein Gingerbread Cookies
This specific version of my high protein desserts (which is basically just code for "there's beans in there") was sponsored by Natural Delights Medjool Dates. Date paste is so much friendlier on my blood sugars than traditional sweeteners.
4. Carrot Apple Butternut Squash Soup
Another oldie but a goodie type recipe. This recipe has been a staple in our home for years and is both dairy free and gluten free. It's warm and comforting and I've yet to meet a person who doesn't like it. It's also surprisingly filling for "just a soup."
3. Oatmeal Chocolate Chip High Protein Cookies
You guys have been making these cookies like crazy over the last few months... and I know exactly why. Just like the brownies (see number 10) and gingerbread cookies (see number 5), they appeal to so many people and tast A-FREAKING-MAZING!!
2. Paleo Sweet Potato Spice Muffins
This recipe was sponsored by Bob's Red Mill, and gave me an excuse to try their Paleo flour mix... which I may or may not have been dying to try. Whether you make them with regular sweet potatoes or purple sweet potatoes, given that I just posted these in November, I think they're going to be a staple I feature for many years to come!
1. How I quadrupled my income, and became a legit food blogger in 2017
Ok, so... I know this wasn't a recipe, but it was the most viewed page (after my homepage and the recipes homepage), on my website. I was incredibly nervous to write this, and was blown away by the response. It was a lesson learned that being open and transparent (and maybe a whole lot of vulnerable) was worth it.
2017 has been a whirlwind to say the least. This business has grown more than I even began to fathom. I'm excited to see what 2018 has in store for Milk & Honey Nutrition, and would LOVE (like, seriously, please) to know what yoHonoru want to see from me and this website and my scoial media accounts! Let me know in the comments!
