Nutty Maple Chocolate Bars

I don’t have the appropriate words for these decadent bars. I’m warning you right now that these bars are completely addicting. I kept on cutting little pieces of these bars to just “taste” them again and again and again and the next thing I knew I had eaten a whole row! I ask you: what […]

Lemon Cheesecake Bars

Lemon bars were another favorite treat in my childhood and beyond. I adored the buttery crust next to the sweet, tart lemony filling balanced by the layer of powdered sugar on top. Mmmmm, my salivary glands are starting to work just thinking about it! Let me be honest, lemon bars are tricky. They are a […]

Pumpkin Cocoa Spiced Muffins

So, my dessert re-vamp week was so fun that I kept going…yep, more healthy dessert recipes are coming! These muffins are super yummy! I titled them “muffins” but they are really a cross between a muffin and a cupcake. Have you tried SuperSeedz?!! I am completely addicted! I LOVE the Double Dark Chocolate variety so […]

Chocolate Banana Bread Pudding

I remember being introduced to Bread Pudding as a child and I LOVED it! I think it had a lot to do with the butter, cream, eggs, and sugar that were involved…creamy and sweet and sure to give me a heart attack! I decided that I needed to give that Bread Pudding a makeover to […]

Banana Quinoa Bread

Banana Bread. The sound of it just brings me comfort. What about you? This is another favorite treat I relished as a child. I remember the recipe my Mom would make started with butter and sugar of course, so this bread needed a makeover! You will love this recipe, which contains plenty of fiber, sweetness, […]

Chocolate Brownies with Chocolate Frosting

I’m excited to share this recipe with you today because who doesn’t love a brownie with delicious frosting?!! Another blast from the past re-make here! I remember a favorite brownie recipe growing up that contained significant butter and so much sugar that just thinking about it gives me diabetes! I remember those fat-laden brownies being […]

Chocolate Cherry Truffles

I think there are two camps when it comes to cherries and chocolate – either you love the combination or you’re not a big fan. I happen to fall in the ‘not a fan’ camp. At. All. When I was younger, I remember receiving a box of chocolates on special occasions. I always looked for […]

Apple Bars

I have been on a dessert rewind re-vamp kick lately – i.e. remembering delicious desserts I enjoyed in my younger years and overhauling them to be healthier! This has proven to be challenging, but very fun and rewarding when I get the recipe right. Let me introduce you to this beloved apple dessert that I […]

Banana Coconut Pancakes

Happy Shrove Tuesday! British Pancake Day is in full swing! If any of you need an excuse to eat pancakes, today is your lucky day! I decided to make a bit of a tropical pancake today…probably because I wish I were in a tropical place about now – looking forward to Spring! I decided to […]

Quinoa Fudge Nut Bars

After I made these delicious Date Carmelitas, I was feeling a bit sorry for myself. I am allergic to oats, so of course I didn’t get to try any of the carmelitas for myself – I simply observed my family and friends devour them. I knew they were delicious. So, this got me thinking…what could […]
