Healthy, Soft-Baked Oatmeal-Raisin Cookies (gluten-free + vegan)

When it comes to cookies, it doesn’t get much better than an old-fashioned, soft-baked oatmeal raisin cookie!  And this recipe is actually healthy.  I sometimes eat these cookies for a quick breakfast on the go since they are mostly heart-healthy oats and almond butter.  They are oil-free and butter-free and lightly sweetened by apple […]

Strawberry Guacamole

June is officially here!  Which means it is the start of strawberry season when you can enjoy this amazing fruit at the peak of flavor!

And since guacamole is always in season in our household I thought why not combine the two!?  This recipe is easy, take your typical guacamole recipe, subtract the tomatoes and […]

It is so hard find a good vegan and gluten-free brownie recipe out there.  So when I stumbled upon this recipe and it turned out well I was elated!  These brownies are incredibly moist and chocolate-y. They are my absolute favorite vegan/gluten-free brownies to date.  No one will ever guess these are vegan and gluten-free!

Healthy Blueberry Crisp (vegan + gluten free)

Allergy Info: soy-free, gluten-free, egg-free, corn-free, dairy-free, coconut-free

They say crisps are the lazy man’s pie… I say they are easily delicious and simply practical.  Who has time to bake a pie from scratch anyways?  You don’t have to be the “baking-type” to master this one.  My 2-year old daughter made this one with me, and she […]

Spiralized Green Apple and Purple Cabbage Slaw with Nuts

I can’t believe grill season is already here!  This warmer weather could not have come soon enough after such a long and dreadful winter.  I’m so excited to experiment with fresh recipes for this grilling season.  First up is this super healthy slaw recipe which […]

Sesame-Cilantro Roasted Sweet Potatoes Drizzled with Creamy Tahini Sauce

Crispy (and slightly spicy) sweet potatoes are drenched in a creamy tahini sauce that makes this side dish mouth watering.  The cilantro garnish adds a gourmet twist that is unexpected and yet perfectly pairs with the nutty sesame and spicy chili flavor of these roasted beauties.

Sweet potatoes are one of my favorite veggies.  Sweet […]

Blueberry Muffins with Oat Crumb Topping (vegan + gluten-free)

Perfectly sweet, moist and airy muffins that are actually healthy!  Every bite has a burst of juicy blueberries.  To complete this easy breakfast solution, it is topped with a slightly crunchy and oh-so-satisfying streusel-like crumb topping.

Until now, I have really struggled to create a healthy, gluten-free and vegan muffin recipe that doesn’t use odd gluten-free flours.  This recipe […]

Roasted Garlic-Shallot Potatoes with Creamy Dill Sauce

Ho-hum potatoes are livened up with a thick and creamy dill sauce. Dill screams spring-time and adds a fresh spark to recipes.

Garlic lovers will rejoice in these crispy and fresh tasting potato cubes.

Potatoes have gotten a bad reputation because of how they are typically prepared: doused in butter, deep-fried or topped with bacon and […]
