Vegan Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins with Teff and Kamut Flour

I’m definitely new to the teff flour bandwagon. I’m not entirely sure that there even IS a teff flour bandwagon, but however small or niche it is, I’m still new to it. I’ve seen a few delicious looking teff flour recipes in one of my favourite cookbooks, Clean Food, but the only thing I’d eaten […]

Clean, 6 Ingredient, Melt-In-Your-Mouth Mint Smoothies

My first idea was to call this Clean Eating Peppermint Cocoa Butter Fudge. It’s a very accurate name but it doesn’t really trip off the tongue. Then I remembered at the market there is this chocolatier that sells these wonderful chocolate and mint confections called Mint Smoothies. Now me, I enjoy a good mint smoothie every […]

Raw Macaroon Brownies with Dark Chocolate Ganache

It’s Valentine’s Day weekend! Or wait, is it wrong to refer to an entire weekend by the holiday that only takes up one of its days? Probably. But, bear with me. Commercial though it may now be, Valentine’s Day is also an opportunity to celebrate the people that you love. At my office, we did […]

Chewy One Bowl Chocolate Chip Cookies (with Chickpea Flour) – v, gf

chewy chocolate chip chickpea cookies - vegan & gluten-free

So who here thinks chickpea flour tastes gross? Show of hands. That’s quite a few of you, but I’m betting it’s from when you tried some adventurous gluten-free chickpea flour recipe and tasted the batter and thought, dear god, what monster have I created? Chickpea flour – un-baked – is kind of bitter. It does […]

Back to School Cocoa Granola with Buckwheat and Cocoa Nibs – v, gf

Friends, I’m going back to school! Part-time, anyways. I’ve finally decided that now is the time, and I’ve enrolled at CSNN London to obtain my Registered Holistic Nutritionist designation. I’ve wanted to do this for years and I didn’t want to waste any more time – so now I’ll be working full-time and taking classes on […]

Summer Strawberry Sherbet with Lemon Zest – v, gf

Strawberry season is upon us! The Farmer’s Market has row upon row of beautiful red strawberries, and given that we’re in a stretch of hot weather, a frozen dessert seemed really very advisable. I had some awesome sherbet last week from the ice cream shop in my neighbourhood, and inspired by that, I decided strawberry […]

Healthy Rhubarb Oat Bars with Crunchy Almond Crumble (v, gf)

It’s rhubarb time! Actually, it’s probably almost past rhubarb time, but never mind that. Truthfully I typically have so much rhubarb in my freezer (that I’ve carefully hoarded from the rhubarb season the year before) that I don’t think I’ve actually ever run out, thereby ensuring that it is ALWAYS rhubarb time. I’ve made fruit […]

Vegan Chocolate Maca Macaroons (gluten-free)

vegan chocolate maca macaroons

Sometimes I write posts about a recipe before I’ve actually tested the recipe. It’s true. I admit it. It’s risky, because sometimes it means I’ll test something, realize it’s not nearly as good as I’d hoped, and then remember I have an entire post already written that waxes eloquent about how delicious it is. On the other […]

Easy No-Bake Almond Butter Protein Bars with Chocolate and Coconut – v, gf

I love a good vegan protein bar. Convenient, tasty, and portable, they can sometimes be the perfect answer to “me so hungry.” But, it’s easy to start relying on them to fill in the gaps, well, just about everywhere. After the gym, as an afternoon snack, in place of supper, and so on. It’s an expensive […]

Fudgy Dark Chocolate and Raspberry Brownie Cookies – v, gf

These cookies are deep, dark, fruity, and delicious. Not exactly a health food, I’ll grant you, but read the recipe before you judge too harshly. You’ll be pleasantly surprised. And I figure, it’s April, there is a sniff of spring in the air, and before the rhubarb pokes its nose out of the warm earth and the […]
