Date Truffles

If you’re like me, a quick snack is frequently on my mind. I graze throughout the day and need fuel! Dates are a perfect snack in so many ways. They are high in potassium, fiber, and other vitamins and minerals – a wonderful pre-workout snack! One of my favorite “treats” is to take a Medjool […]

Ginger Snap Cookies

It’s time for another recipe re-make! I remember being introduced to Ginger Snap cookies when I was a little girl. I LOVED them! The spicy and sweet notes sang in my mouth and I would often find myself eating almost the whole box. Yes, sadly these were store bought cookies. But they were SO good! […]

Addicting “Cheese” Sauce

It’s so easy to put the words “cheese” and “addicting” together isn’t it?!! I am using the word “cheese” very loosely here because there is no dairy to be found in this delicious recipe, but I can say that this sauce is quite addicting! The sweet potato and carrots give just the right texture, sweetness, […]

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 […]

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 […]
