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 […]

Baked Chili Cheese Polenta Fries

I have a few recipes in my repertoire that fix my cravings for anything crunchy.  One actually uses millet, which I’ll post another time, another is oven baked potato fries.  And then there’s this one.  Polenta bakes up wonderfully crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside, if you haven’t tried it, you really […]

Flourless Chocolate Puddle Cookies

Naturally gluten, grain and dairy free rich chocolate cookies with a fudgy interior and a thin crackly top, just like a perfect brownie in cookie form! I need to start out with a warning.   These are dangerously good!  But don’t bother trying to cut the recipe down to reduce temptation, they freeze really well so […]

I’ve been on a real muesli kick lately.  I never liked it before, it could never compare to granola.  The texture of the oats was gross, the dry fruit mixed in never appealed to me and mixed with milk it wasn’t too tasty.  I’ve recently discovered that mixing muesli with plain yogurt and a dash […]

Gluten Free Vegan Blueberry Muffins

There is honestly nothing better than spending a warm sunny spring afternoon outside for as long as you can until it starts to get cold.  My husband is replacing our fence this weekend so he was getting a bit of a head start yesterday evening.  While we were doing things around the yard the kids […]

Vegan Peanut Butter Banana Chocolate Chunk Cookies

I really think the problem with most healthy cookies is the lack of oil.  I love some “muffin top” type cookies that are soft and fluffy and like muffins and I’ve successfully made some of those that are really good with very minimal added fat.  Unfortunately, your average cookie needs something more.  And with these […]
