Grain-Free, Cookie Dough Energy Bites

Thumbnail image for Grain-Free, Cookie Dough Energy Bites November 27, 2012

These are probably my simplest energy bites yet.  And you would not believe how fast they were eaten.  They’re like cookie dough so I think you can assume how awesome these are. I realize I usually stay away from anything processed, but in this case we had some Halloween candy still hanging around that I […]

Raw Vegan Coconut Brownies

Have you ever made a raw brownie?  Or any kind of raw dessert?  Of course they’re different in taste and texture, and it’s not like I don’t enjoy the real deal, buttery and sugary brownies(even if I do like them a little less sweet now), but I will gladly choose these as a very healthy […]

I have a new favorite soup.  Since posting my cajun shrimp soup recipe in February we’ve had that soup almost a dozen times and I usually make way more than the recipe makes because we love it for leftovers too.  I’ve moved on though.  Seriously, this is now my favorite soup.  Good news, I don’t […]

Well, just a quick post again from me today.  I wasn’t planning on posting these today but then I realized they might make a perfect little treat, or even gift so I might as well post them.  I’ve been making them for quite some time now, and I even posted about them before with an […]

Individual Apple Crisps

Apples are one of my favorite fruits.  I have no problem eating them plain, by themselves, but apple desserts are some of my favorites too.  And there’s nothing better than hot, fresh applesauce from the stove.  Or raw with peanut butter.  Or… OK, so I could go on and on.  In fact I think I’m […]

Pumpkin Pie Steel Cut Oats in the Crockpot

I’m afraid I’ve been holding onto this recipe for a while.  I’ve been making pumpkin pie oats with rolled oats or steel cut oats on the stove for a couple years now but I thought I’d work on a crockpot recipe before sharing.  You can of course cook these on the stove if you so […]
