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)

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)

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 [...]

Vegan Toast Toppers 6 Ways

By | 2017-02-07T10:13:16+00:00 February 6th, 2017|Categories: Breakfast, Brunch, Snacks|

As much as I love bread and toast, I don't eat it often anymore unless it's made with sprouted whole grains or real sourdough (fermented 48 hours or longer), and now I'm going to explain to you why. Grains, nuts, seeds, and legumes are naturally shielded with antinutrients - such as phytic acid and enzyme inhibitors - to protect [...]

By | 2017-01-31T08:22:32+00:00 January 31st, 2017|Categories: Breakfast, Brunch, Drinks/Smoothies, Snacks|

Buckwheat smoothies are one my favorite foods to have for breakfast and when I realized I didn't have a recipe for them on the blog yet, I knew that had to change ASAP! Despite the name, buckwheat is not related to wheat, nor is it a cereal grain. But rather a fruit seed related to the [...]

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 [...]
