Flourless Brownies

These flourless, kosher for passover brownies are so fudgy and delicious! These don’t contain matza meal or cake flour (like many kosher for passover dessert recipes), which is an added bonus. I used this recipe from the Chicago Tribune and slightly filled in gaps I saw in the recipe. Flourless Kosher for Passover Brownies Ingredients:…

Flourless Chocolate Cake

Totally worth sitting through a 3 hour Passover Seder for! Gluten-free desserts never looked (or tasted so good)! My mom made this delicious flourless chocolate cake recipe from Joan Nathan. Even though I thought it looked great, she wanted me to “make it look pretty” because of the crumbly edges.   I decided to add Natasha’s…

Chocolate Chia Pudding

If you know me well, you know I love chocolate! I also love chia seed pudding, as shown through my multiple chia pudding recipes: Chocolate Chia Seed Pudding (different recipe, banana instead of maple syrup used for sweetening), Blueberry Kefir Chia Pudding, and Banana Flambé Chia Seed Pudding. The health benefits of chia seeds are countless, as chia seeds…

Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

This recipe from Rachel Mansfield contains my favorite combination of ingredients: bananas, chocolate and nut butter. If you are allergic to nuts, you can use a nut-free butter to substitute for nut butter. Even though this recipe can be paleo-friendly, nothing about the taste of this recipe screams healthy dessert! In fact, this is definitely…

Red Berry Oatmeal

Nothing screams Valentine’s Day like chocolate, so I figured, why not add it to my breakfast oatmeal this Valentine’s Day? Chocolate in warm oats is such a treat, especially since the chocolate melts and makes oatmeal taste like warm cookie dough. Plus, when I have chocolate in the morning, it tends to satisfy my chocolate…

Foods of Israel Tour

During my recent trip to Israel, I did a four day extension Birthright extension program called Foods of Israel. Through this program I got to explore the melting pot of Israeli cuisine alongside peers from North and Latin America. The trip was a whirlwind of smells, sights and adventure, and I wanted to share my…

Blueberry Kefir Chia Pudding

Kefir is one of my daily essentials. The fuzzy, bubbly drink is one of my favorites because it is loaded with probiotics, fills me up, and is low in sugar (I make a plain version without any additives). In this recipe I used my homemade kefir (made using the YoGourmet Kefir starter I found at…
