Banana Blueberry Waffles

I thought that I found my favorite waffle recipe in my Oatmeal Waffles, but that was before I made these Banana Blueberry Waffles! I had extra ripe bananas on hand, and decided to make this recipe. I used Rachel Mansfeld’s Paleo Blueberry Banana Bread muffins recipe and made them into waffle form, and they were incredible!…

Banana Chocolate Chip Cookies

I have a whole long list of recipes I’ve wanted to try with ripe mashed bananas, and this Banana Chocolate Chip cookie recipe from delish was one of them! This recipe also is made with peanut butter (my favorite), so I knew it would taste good! Plus it is gluten-free for all those avoiding gluten,…

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. This is my first cookie recipe to include both of these beloved ingredients! I found this cookie recipe off of…

Sweet Potato Waffles

I love sweet potatoes, and I’m lucky that they are also incredibly nutritious and a great source of fiber, protein and vitamins (learn more here)!

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…

PB and J Oats

It’s peanut butter jelly time! Especially with today being National Peanut Butter and Jelly Day. I love my morning oatmeal, especially warmed up with fruits. I normally like adding tahini, like in my Berry Tahini Oatmeal, to make the oatmeal more filling (I have very little self-control when peanut butter is in the house). However, I…

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…
