Greens and Pita Benedict with Feta Zaatar Cream

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

I love peanut butter and chocolate, as shown through my various dessert combos containing these two ingredients: Healthy Vegan Chocolate Peanut Butter Crunch Bars, Peanut Butter Banana Cups, Chocolate Chip Banana Bread and Chocolate Dipped Frozen Banana Bites.

Crunchy Sweet Potato Peels

The BEST Chia Seed Jam

I’ve made various versions of Chia Seed Jam at home, and they all come out very different. I like making homemade versions of chia jam as a health conscious vegetarian, since they don’t contain gelatin or other processed ingredients. Plus, chia seeds are incredibly nutritious and are a great source of antioxidants, fiber, protein and…
