No-Bake Orange Chocolate Chip Cookies (V,GF)

By | 2017-03-25T08:31:12+00:00 March 25th, 2017|Categories: Desserts, Snacks|

Soft, chewy, zesty, with a hint of orange and chunks of dark chocolate. That's how these no-bake cookies taste in a nutshell. Baking is not my favorite thing to do. It's rather difficult for me to stick to the exact ingredients and measurements since I tend to play around with recipes all the time. That's [...]

Healthy Dark Chocolate Avocado Truffles (V,GF)

By | 2017-03-14T09:49:25+00:00 March 14th, 2017|Categories: Desserts, Snacks|

Soft, chewy, decadent... but best of all healthy. That's how I would describe these little bites of heaven that are guaranteed to satisfy the strongest chocolate cravings! Chocolate cravings often stem from hormonal imbalances and deficiency in magnesium. Raw cacao is one of the top 10 sources of magnesium and is also high in disease-fighting antioxidants. [...]

Peanut Butter & Jelly Fudge Bites (V,GF)

By | 2017-03-07T10:46:33+00:00 March 7th, 2017|Categories: Desserts, Snacks|

Peanut butter and jelly... A magical combo that reminds most people of their childhood. Not me! I didn't grow up with it. In fact, I think I was in my early teenage years when I first tried peanut butter and I didn't like it at all! My sister brought me a jar as a souvenir from [...]

Blueberry Coconut Bars (V,GF)

By | 2017-03-04T09:11:07+00:00 March 4th, 2017|Categories: Desserts, Snacks|

This past week I've been strangely attracted to purple foods! So when thinking about whipping up a dessert, I immediately thought about including blueberries. I used simple ingredients I had on hand, such as walnuts, dates, and coconut flakes, in addition to the blueberries. I love raw recipes as they are very forgiving when it [...]

Chocolate Orange Mousse Tart (V,GF)

By | 2017-02-27T19:20:29+00:00 March 1st, 2017|Categories: Desserts, Snacks|

It's no mystery that chocolate and orange are a match made in heaven! So I thought it was about time to bring them together in a healthy raw treat. Ever since the start of the citrus season I've been stuffing my face with all kinds of different citrus fruits. Oranges, blood oranges, grapefruit, sweet lemon, [...]

Chocolate Coconut Cake with Dark Chocolate Ganache (V,GF)

By | 2017-02-21T18:55:46+00:00 February 21st, 2017|Categories: Desserts, Snacks|

I made this chocolate coconut cake last week based on a recipe from Paula Lyon's new cookbook, The Works, and it turned out to be every bit as delicious as her beautiful photos in the book portrayed. It's light and airy, and tastes like a rich chocolatey banana bread with a slight hint of my favorite [...]

With Valentine's day just around the corner, I thought it would be a good idea to bring you these irresistible red velvet slices with vanilla cashew cream cheese frosting. They are raw, so no cooking or baking is involved, which means they are quite easy to prepare and rather hard to mess up! Great way to impress your [...]

Made out of wholesome nutritious ingredients and free [...]

Cranberry Coconut Bars (V/GF)

By | 2017-01-08T10:54:54+00:00 January 7th, 2017|Categories: Desserts, Snacks|

These cranberry coconut bars were born during the holidays as I opened up the fridge and saw a big jar of cranberry sauce sitting in there with no plans ;) The idea of mixing coconut and cranberries came from these to-die-for cranberry cheesecake bars from the lovely Erin Ireland, which I have yet to make! These [...]

Raw Matcha Lime “Cheesecake” with Pistachio Crust (V/GF)

By | 2017-01-07T11:43:27+00:00 December 23rd, 2016|Categories: Desserts|

This raw, vegan, and gluten-free matcha lime cheesecake with a pistachio crust has got to be on my list of top 3 favorite desserts of all time! I would describe it as airy, fluffy, creamy, not too sweet, and rather refreshing! I love raw desserts because I find them somewhat fool-proof. It's hard to mess them up since there's [...]
