Apple Oat Bars with Streusel Topping

Apple season is in full swing, which means apple desserts!  But beware, most apple desserts are drowning in butter and refined sugar making them not as healthy as their main ingredient…apples.  But I’ve got you covered on that front…this healthy vegan and gluten-free apple dessert is perfect for fall and completely allergy friendly (no dairy, […]

Vegan Blackberry Scones (Gluten-Free)

Healthy and allergy-friendly brunch solution ahead!

I can’t tell you how many times I enter a coffee shop and ogle the beautifully displayed scones.  But alas, I am probably allergic to 90% of the ingredients.  Not to mention they are typically loaded with refined flours, unhealthy fats and more sugar than I would know what to […]

Hidden Greens Chocolate-Cherry Protein Smoothie

Chocolate…Sweet Cherries…Protein…Greens…Antioxidants…Fiber… too much!  I almost didn’t know what to call this decadent creation without it having the longest title in recipe history!  It is basically a meal replacement since it contains vegetables, protein and antioxidants (all from plant-based sources).  And did I mention it contains over a cup of packed spinach that you can’t […]

Berry Chia Jam (no cook)

Homemade Jam! 4 ingredients, no cooking needed, loads of nutrient-rich chia seeds.  Bam!

Why buy your jam in the store when you can control the sweetness and ingredients at home?  You really can’t find a recipe more simple than this.  All it requires is a blender and a jar.  It literally takes 2 minutes to […]

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 […]

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 […]

Smoothie Bowl: Berry Almond Bliss

I have officially jumped on the smoothie bowl bandwagon!  And I’m loving it!  It really is fun to decorate the smoothie bowl with your favorite boosters and healthy garnishes… It definitely makes for a heartier and more satisfying smoothie by adding a bit of crunch and some different textures to each spoonful.  We all eat […]

Breakfast Cookies (vegan + gluten-free)

Cookies for breakfast!?  Yes.

I’m always looking for portable snacks that are wholesome and healthful.  These cookies are loaded with oats, almond flour, flaxseed, walnuts, dried fruit and almond butter to make a nutritious on-the-go sweet treat anytime of day.  I usually enjoy them as a mid-morning snack.  But they can also serve as a healthy and […]
