I’ll share another roundup (or two?) of popular posts but wanted to begin by sharing a peek into my top 10 most popular recipes from the past year.
I broke them up into two categories — Most Popular Recipes Shared in 2019 and Most Popular Recipes in 2019. While the first category includes only brand new recipes I created and shared in 2019, the second category includes ALL recipes, not just those shared in 2019, for a glimpse into the most popular recipes from PBF that still claim top spots year after year.
I also like to take this time to ask all of you what you’d like to see more of when it comes to recipes I share on the blog in the coming year. Though I plan to stay true to sharing mostly EASY recipes, I’m absolutely open to requests if you guys have anything specific you’d like to see. Are you interested in more plant-based recipes? Crock pot creations? Grab-and-go breakfast ideas? Please let me know!
Most Popular Recipes Shared in 2019
If I ever need to look for motivation to be a better planner and share timely recipes on the blog, I need to remember the fact that this Overnight English Muffin Breakfast Casserole ended up being my most popular new recipe of 2019. I planned ahead and shared this one right before Easter which I think had a lot to do with its success since so many people are on the lookout for delicious Easter brunch recipes in March and April.
I love it when one of my personal favorite recipes ends up being a favorite of you guys as well and that is the case with these Healthy Chocolate Chip Sweet Potato Muffins. They’re an updated version of my beloved pumpkin muffins and a big-time hit with our boys as well. A quick note for anyone who likes to bake in large batches: These muffins freeze really well! Simply bring them back to life with a quick 25 seconds in the microwave.
These Thai Chickpea Burgers are one of the vegetarian recipes I’m most proud of creating for the blog. They’re so flavorful and packed with good-for-you ingredients. I continue to make them regularly because they’re a recipe Ryder loves, too!
I love the way this Collagen Baked Oatmeal recipe is filling and protein-packed and made with ingredients I almost always have on hand in my pantry. Plus it’s an easy recipe to customize and serves as a great base baked oatmeal recipe for any of your favorite additions — fresh blueberries, sliced almonds and more!
I get hungry just thinking about this Vegetarian Chickpea Curry recipe! It’s a satisfying curry recipe that makes me feel good whenever I eat it because every bite is packed with so many vibrant veggies. This is a dish I also love making when we have guests over because it’s always a hit! In addition to being a vegetarian recipe, this one is also gluten-free and dairy-free so keep that in mind in case you’re looking to find a delicious dish that can also accommodate a variety of dietary preferences.
This recipe for Slow Cooker Cilantro Lime Chicken is a meal prep fanatic’s dream! It’s incredibly easy to make and lends itself to a variety of different dishes. I love making a big batch of this chicken to use in everything from tacos and salads to grain bowls and wraps.
I love how many of you love this Snickerdoodle Smoothie recipe! It’s the perfect recipe to whip up when your sweet tooth is raging but you’re hoping to satisfy it with something a little more nourishing than a cookie.
This Oatmeal Apple Crisp recipe is another one of my favorites from 2019! If you like your apple crisp full of texture but don’t want to spend too much time in the kitchen making it, this recipe will be right up your alley.
Ryan’s burger recipe isn’t anything fancy — far from it! — but the simple ingredients always result in the most deliciously juicy and flavorful burger. It’s a great basic burger recipe to stand up to all of your favorite toppings. Though he never measures anything, I hovered over his shoulder (not annoying at all, right?) and made him measure everything as he prepared a batch of burgers for our family so I could share a breakdown of his go-to burger recipe with you guys on the blog. It’s SO good!
There’s no protein powder required for these Oatmeal Pumpkin Protein Pancakes. Made with old fashioned oats, pumpkin, eggs and cottage cheese and naturally sweetened with honey, they’re a warm and comforting breakfast our whole family loves.
Most Popular Recipes of 2019
I was actually surprised to see this Greek Yogurt Rotisserie Chicken Salad recipe claim the top spot for the most popular recipe from 2019 — new OR old! It’s a recipe I shared back in 2017 that we still love in our house and I’m glad to see so many of you do, too! It’s the perfect recipe to whip up when you have leftover chicken on hand.
Unlike the first recipe on this list, I was not at all surprised to see my Three-Minute Egg White Oatmeal recipe claim a top spot on this list! It’s been one of my most popular blog recipes ever since I shared it back in 2014 and with good reason. It’s one of my all-time favorite breakfast recipes and one I continue to make all the time.
This recipe always spikes in popularity around the holidays. Whether it’s the Fourth of July, Easter, Labor Day, New Year’s Eve, etc., this Simple Shrimp Dip is a party favorite in our family and seems to be the same for a bunch of you, too!
Heck yessss! I love seeing this Crockpot Chicken Corn Chili recipe claim a top spot because it’s a dish we make in our house over and over and OVER again once fall and winter hit and chili season arrives. It’s SO DARN EASY to make (no chopping required) and I am constantly hearing from you guys telling me that recipe has become a staple in your home as well which makes me so happy. This is also the recipe that won Best Non-Traditional Chili at my friend’s parents’ annual chili cook-off attended by around 100 people, so I promise more people than just me can vouch for this recipe!
My Paleo-loving friends are to thank for making this Paleo Oatless Oatmeal with Zucchini a hit year after year. I am constantly hearing from people who choose to eat a Paleo diet that this recipe is a saving grace for them when they’re craving oatmeal or grains for breakfast.
This is another recipe that flew under the radar and surprised me with claiming a top spot this year. Apparently I am not the only one who loves the cauliflower rice from Zoe’s Kitchen because you guys made this recipe for Copycat Zoe’s Kitchen Cauliflower Rice a top hit this year.
I don’t think there’s a dinner I make for our family more often than these chicken thighs! This recipe for the Best Paleo Chicken Thigh Marinade is one I make all the time not only for dinner for our family but for lunch for myself since it’s so easy to throw together and makes a great meal prep recipe. If you haven’t made this recipe yet, please give it a shot ASAP and report back. I promise you’ll love it!
One pan meals are some of my favorite meals because clean up is a breeze. That’s certainly the case with this easy Chicken Sausage Sweet Potato Bake. And for my Paleo and gluten-free friends, this recipe will check all of your boxes, too!
My fellow sweet tooth friends clearly love this one Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Fudge recipe as much as I do! It’s an easy (clean!) fudge recipe that also packs a protein punch.
If you love butternut squash and creamy, good-for-you grain bowls, don’t let this Butternut Squash Grain Bowl recipe fly under your radar any longer. It’s one of my all-time favorite blog recipes and tastes fantastic reheated as leftovers, too.
