Apple Roses

The perfect dessert for Rosh Hashana (or any other time you feel like an apple pastry)! Looks super fancy and isn’t a lot of work, but most importantly, it tastes delicious! My dad thinks it’s much better than many of the pastries he’s had at bakeries, which also means it doesn’t last long in my…

Peanut butter fudge pretzel bars

Saw this recipe on @somethingnutritious instagram and knew I had to try it since I love her recipes and peanut butter and chocolate is my favorite dessert combo! I don’t often have pretzel in my dessert either, so I was excited to try her recipe. I loved how these fudge bars turned out (minus the…

Vegan PB cups

I’m not huge on candy, and my favorite American candy by far is Reese’s. Nothing better than peanut butter and chocolate combo! These treats from @holyhealth (on instagram) are not only a healthier, less processed version of a Reese’s peanut butter cup, but are also tastier (in my opinion). Here’s her recipe (my edits/comments are…

Healthy Chocolate Chip cookies

This recipe is from one of my favorite food bloggers Gal Cohen (on insta @somethingnutritious). She is a real food dietitian and has delicious dessert recipes, and this is one of my favorites! My parents have told me multiple times when I’ve made this recipe that it is one of their favorite chocolate chip cookies…

Strawberry Chia Pudding

Chia pudding has many nutritional benefits, and I love a good chia pudding recipe! Loved this one because it gets a pinkish color and natural sweetness from the strawberries. Recipe inspired by Boho Beautiful Life Strawberry Chia Pudding Makes 1-2 servings Ingredients: 1 cup coconut milk 1/4 cup chia seeds 1/4 tsp vanilla extract 1/2…

Paleo Macaroons

Got this delicious recipe from a vegan friend. I was skeptical, since these macaroons are paleo, gluten-free and vegan, and I’ve definitely gotten some bad recipes for “healthy” desserts, so my parents generally ask me not to make desserts healthy. However, decided to take a risk with this recipe, as this vegan friend cooks a…

matzah crunch

My favorite part of Passover is the delicious Passover desserts! One of our close family friends used to always make Matzah crunch for us growing up, so I never had to made my own. Now that we have moved, I finally decided to learn to make my own! I used this recipe from Israel 21C….

Strawberry French Toast Bread Pudding

I had extra homemade challah, and decided to make with it a recipe I had been wanting to try for a while, Berry French Toast Bake from TASTY. I didn’t have any fresh fruit, so I had to revise the recipe based on the frozen berries I had at home.  Here is the recipe, with…

Chocolate PB Crispy Squares

Not normally a huge fan of rice krispy treats, but I love chocolate and peanut butter, so I decided to try Gal Cohen’s (@holyhealth on instagram) recipe for these crispy squares. They are vegan, and I really enjoyed them.  chocolate peanut butter rice kripsies treats INGREDIENTS 3 cups puffed rice cereal (or general rice krispies)…

No-bake German Chocolate Cake Cups

Found this delicious looking recipe on Dani’s Healthy Eats, and since I had left over almond flour (from making homemade almond milk) and an event to bring dessert to, I knew this was a perfect opportunity to try this recipe! I made a few edits to Dani’s original recipe (which you can find in red)…
