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 […]

Peach Salsa

We are deep into summer and I’m dreaming about sweet and juicy peaches – the ultimate summer fruit.  They really are nature’s candy.  Nothing against tomatoes at all, but lately peaches have stolen my taste buds… Salsas are easy to make and definitely kid-friendly.  I made this recipe with my 2 year old daughter, […]

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 […]
