Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie

I actually made this pie the same day I made the chilled dark chocolate pie. I couldn’t decide! So when I said I ate pie for dessert and snack and breakfast, I actually ate BOTH pies… I tried so hard to figure out which one I liked better, and I really couldn't. Dark chocolate and … Continue reading Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie


Chilled Dark Chocolate Pie

So I didn’t really have a reason for making this pie, other than I felt like it. But I am sure glad that I did! Tastes absolutely amazing but has a toasted almond crust, uses coconut cream in the filling and is topped with berries, meaning it is 100% gluten and refined sugar free. I … Continue reading Chilled Dark Chocolate Pie

Black Bean Molten Lava Cakes

Happy belated Valentine’s Day! I sit here snowed in again, this time by a blizzard with type 2 hurricane winds. A blizzicane? Trains are cancelled, coffee shop closed, traveling discouraged. But that means plenty of time to cook! Just in case you didn’t get enough chocolate in yesterday, here is one more recipe. But paleo … Continue reading Black Bean Molten Lava Cakes

I wasn’t necessarily looking for a vegan recipe when I came across the idea for these cookies, but when I saw that they were healthy … Continue reading Chocolate Avocado Cookies

Snowball Cookies

It's a powder day! This week’s dorm baking cookies don’t taste like peppermint or gingerbread, but they certainly look like the holidays. Soft and powdery, and they melt in your mouth just like snow. These cookies come together very quickly with few ingredients. The best part about these cookies is not so much the flavor … Continue reading Snowball Cookies

Honey Whole Wheat Bread

Before I start with this week’s recipes, I have one more post to catch up on from last week. I had a lot of buttermilk left over from the vanilla bean fig scones, and I wanted to do something interesting with it. I’ve never used buttermilk much before besides to make my favorite buttermilk biscuits … Continue reading Honey Whole Wheat Bread

Maple Syrup Bars

For this week’s edition of dorm baking, I decided to move on to a new fall flavor. Although I would be more than happy to continue with pumpkin, sweet potatoes, and squash, it only seemed fair to give some of the other flavors a chance. Pretty soon it will be winter (so excited for Christmas … Continue reading Maple Syrup Bars
