Healthier Super Bowl Snacks

Healthier Super Bowl Snacks

Whether you’re all about the snacks, the commercials, the game, or all three, Super Bowl Sunday is just a couple days away and it’s time to get those menus planned out! So I decided to round up a handful of my favorite healthier Super Bowl snacks for you to add to your spread.

Edamame Sweet Pea Pesto Hummus

Healthier Super Bowl Snacks

My love affair with homemade hummus started nearly a decade ago. And since then, I have experimented hundreds of times, and each batch gets just a little bit better. Today’s recipe for this edamame sweet pea pesto hummus is my favorite creation to date; it is so smooth and creamy, and you can’t beat the […]

Easy Vegan Spelt Biscuits

Easy Vegan Spelt Biscuits

Even though I live in sunny California, this weekend was miserable and gloomy, not quite the blizzard in the Rocky Mountains, but still gross. To combat the dropping temperatures, I baked all day, and the results were these easy vegan spelt biscuits.

Sweet Potato Nacho Pie

Healthier Super Bowl Snacks

We’ve made it to Super Bowl Sunday, one of the best holidays for SNACKS. Earlier this week I whipped up this sweet potato nacho pie for lunch and it was unanimously voted onto Sunday’s menu. It’s a fork and plate situation, and I’m 100% ok with it. Imagine veggie fajitas, that are baked, with melted […]

Vegan Chocolate Banana Muffins

Vegan Chocolate Banana Muffins

Ever since I created my recipe for vegan oil-free banana muffins, I’ve been making them non-stop. I sit and wait for my bananas to get super ripe then whip up a batch for breakfast, snack, or just because. But then my friend shared a chocolate muffin recipe with me and I thought, ok, let’s pivot. […]

Vegan Overnight Oatmeal Cookies

Vegan Overnight Oatmeal Cookies

Last week my mom sent me a recipe from The Kitchn for Overnight Oat Cookies. She wanted me to play around with the ingredients to see if I could find a healthier alternative, because I have to say, those cookies are not breakfast friendly, despite the author’s claims. Instead of using a cup and a […]

Vegan Oil-free Banana Muffins

Vegan Oil-free Banana Muffins

One of my good friends eats vegan and oil-free for various health reasons. I love when he comes to visit because it challenges my usual methods of cooking, and I always discover exciting new recipes! These vegan oil-free banana muffins were developed just for him, and they have quickly become a staple in our house.

Mint Chocolate Pretzel Protein Bars

Mint Chocolate Pretzel Protein Bars

Let’s step into the wonderful world of meal-prepping for a minute. No, I’m not talking about five containers of rice, steamed broccoli and grilled chicken that you will somehow have to choke down over the next week. But rather these utterly addictive mint chocolate pretzel protein bars.

One Bite Vegan Cookies

One Bite Vegan Cookies

This recipe for one bite vegan cookies was born out of a desire to recreate a cookie mix that I had found at Trader Joes the other day. It was completely vegan, paleo, anti-inflammatory, easy, and most importantly, delicious. My only issue with the boxed mix, was that it was too sweet. So I set […]

Flourless Chocolate Mini Muffins

Flourless Chocolate Mini Muffins

I’ll keep this one short and sweet, kind of like these flourless chocolate mini muffins. Late last week, I whipped up a batch for snack, and all 12 were gone in under 30 minutes! They have a luscious chocolate flavor without being overly sweet, just the thing for an afternoon pick-me-up.
