A dense, fudgy brownie made with coconut flour that will make you wonder why you ever made brownies from a box! And just like that, another Monday is upon us [with a time change, no less!]. My weekend with Sissy and my nuggets was great, but unfortunately it went by quickly and now its back to normal life! This trip was really more of a tease with them only staying for a few days, but they will be back in a few weeks for a longer stay, so I’m looking forward to that! I suppose I should move on to the star of this post, huh? ;) Coconut flour and I have a very ... Continue Reading...

A rich peanut butter and chocolate dessert bite that is no bake, gluten free and dairy free! I’ve had a full 3lb tub of pitted dates in my cupboard since Christmas. I’m actually quite ashamed to admit that, but my shame has been lessened now that I’ve put them to such good use. And when I say good use, I mean fan-fricking-tastic use, cause these little bites are the bomb.   Although it is becoming increasingly clear that I need rolling lessons. Do they teach you how to proportionally roll things in culinary school? Not that I’m thinking of going, it’s just ... Continue Reading...

A delicious, protein packed bite, these White Chocolate Cranberry Protein Bites double as a quick snack or a sweet tooth fix!  Chocolate and peanut butter. Chocolate and almond butter. Chocolate and orange. Chocolate and bananas. Chocolate and ice cream. Chocolate and cranberries. Do I have your attention yet? Yes, ok good. If you couldn’t tell from the list above, I have a thing for chocolate. Some combinations are better than others, but you can’t really go wrong with chocolate in my book. By the way, this recipe not only has chocolate and cranberries, but ... Continue Reading...
