Flourless Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies

I have officially become a (healthy) cookie monster.  I may have a problem.  I make cookies basically every other night.  Oftentimes I eat them as a mid-morning snack.  And when they are this healthy, why not?

I kept these cookies entirely vegan and gluten-free.  They are oil free, butter free and use only 2 tablespoons […]

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 […]

Superfood Crackers

These all-natural crackers are gluten-free, vegan, soy-free, nut-free and oil-free. […]

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 […]
