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…

Crunchy Sweet Potato Peels

I saw this recipe on food52’s instagram for what they called Potato Peel Chips. I had been wanting to try this recipe for a while, because I love crunchy foods, and sweet potatoes (especially the peel!) It makes me sad that a lot of the recipes discard sweet potato peels, especially since they are delicious…

Crispy Baked Sweet Potato Fries

So I love fries and sweet potatoes, which has led me to make sweet potato fries pretty frequently. I like mine crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside, and have tried different recipes. Recently, I tried making two different recipe versions as the same time so I could give a fair comparison. I…

Chocolate Quinoa Bark

I tried making these chocolate quinoa crisps from the Toasted Pinenut that I had saved to Pinterest, and even though they looked nothing like the picture I saw online, they still tasted great. This definitely isn’t my favorite dessert I have featured on this blog, but it’s a fun addition to add crumbled on top of…

Cauliflower Shawarma

I love the smells of shawarma, but as a vegetarian, its hard to find something that absorbs the flavor of this seasoning as well as meat. I’ve tried different vegetarian versions (on tofu, broccoli, and cauliflower), and my favorite by far has been on cauliflower. Shawarma seasoning is a blend of cumin, coriander, paprika and…

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…

Fresh Spring Rolls

FRESH SPRING 🌺ROLLS, the perfect seasonal snack! I found rice paper at Whole foods (they even have a brown rice paper option). Here’s how I made it: Spring Roll Ingredients: Fruit of choice (sliced mango, sliced strawberry or blackberries) alfalfa sprouts chopped cilantro (optional since there are plenty of people averse to it) chopped mint chopped…
