Chocolate Covered Strawberry Pie

This year I made my own birthday cake. How else are you supposed to get exactly the cake you want if you don’t make it yourself? Having returned from Puerto Rico that week, I wanted to keep up with the vegan deliciousness. Also, after eating so many whole foods and no processed sugar, cake and … Continue reading Chocolate Covered Strawberry Pie


Chai Spiced Almond Butter

Happy Easter weekend! I finally had some time to get back in the kitchen today and baked through all the top recipes on my to-do list, and then some. This recipe was actually a by-product, but I had the almonds, spices, and food processor out, so I couldn’t resist. Once the kitchen is messy, another … Continue reading Chai Spiced Almond Butter

I thought it would be good to start off with a photo of these, just to show that they look (and taste!) good even though the ingredients might suggest otherwise... 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

Because these muffins have coconut flour and almond flour, they are much fluffier than the pumpkin pie muffins. The banana is sweet, and I also added … Continue reading Paleo Banana Muffins

Pumpkin Protein Oat Bars

This post marks the first in a string of healthy breakfast/snack recipes. I munched through these bars last week along with my healthy cookie dough bites quite happily. I even shared some with my uncle (I think he may have initially thought they were dessert), and we both enjoyed them with Whole Foods honey roasted … Continue reading Pumpkin Protein Oat Bars

(Healthy) Cookie Dough Balls

It’s been a great few days off for the holidays, but unfortunately I do have to head back to work tomorrow. That meant that this Sunday was a pretty typical Sunday—I cooked and prepared lots of different things to last me for the week. I am spending the next few nights in the city, so … Continue reading (Healthy) Cookie Dough Balls
