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 [...]

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 [...]

How can I best describe these brownies?? Well, fudgy, dense, rich and chocolatey are the first words that come to mind. I made these last weekend after a night out with friends. I came home late at night, craving something smooth and chocolatey that could be made in less than 15 minutes. After all, I wanted to crash [...]

If you've been following my Instagram page for a while, you probably know how obsessed I am with green smoothies. That being said, I have to say I'm a big proponent of eating according to seasons. So during fall and winter, I try to reduce my smoothie intake and include more warming and hearty dishes like oatmeal [...]

Almond Pulp “Bounty” Chocolate Bars (V/GF)

By | 2017-05-17T09:55:25+00:00 December 23rd, 2016|Categories: Desserts, Snacks|

After making another batch of almond milk last week I was trying to come up with a new and exciting way to use up the leftover pulp. I dread putting food to waste, so I often use the pulp in cookies, blondies, macaroons, or crackers, or freeze it for future use. This time I thought why not mix [...]

Did I seriously make my own birthday cake? The answer is YES and I'm going to tell you why! Ever since I got into nutrition and healthy cooking I've tried not to bring store-bought sweets into my home as much as possible. I'm not a health freak and I believe in the 80/20 rule, which [...]
