Chocolate Protein Donuts

This morning was a miracle of happiness when the girls slept in until 8am this morning. I woke up and was like, “Where am I? What just happened?!” and it was probably the most beautiful thing ever. Needless to say, I think we were all a little zonked after our whirlwind trip to Disney. I started…

The Crazy Elvis

(grain-free, dairy-free and INSANELY delicious) You guys. I can’t even tell you about this dessert. You just have to look. And see.  And taste. And make any sound effects that you so desire. I first got the idea for this recipe at The Patio on Lamont. It’s one of our favorite spots to meet with…

Soft and Healthy Oatmeal Peanut Butter Cookies

Sometimes you just need a cookie. (or four…) I was really hankering for cookies the other night, and since my little sous chef is always willing to help me bake, I thought it would be fun to sneak off to the kitchen to make some cookies.  As far as the cookies go, I’ll let the…

Homemade Raw Pitaya Cheesecake

Time for an afternoon sweet treat…. 🙂 I’m on a pitaya kick and I can’t.be.stopped. It’s been a way to switch it up from acai (though don’t get me wrong, I still love my acai). Pitaya is lower in sugar and higher in antioxidants. Oh, and it’s this gorgeous bright pink color, so that’s always…

Vegan chocolate oatmeal peanut butter cookies

Hiiiii 🙂 How’s your day going? Hope it’s been great 🙂 How ‘bout a cookie?  Confession: I’m a little bit of a cookie monster. I can take or leave ice cream or vanilla desserts (case in point: creme brûlée is always blah to me) but I LIVE for baked treats. The gooier, chocolaty-er, cake-ier, the…

Here’s a fun dessert option for your St. Patrick’s Day festivities this week–salted Baileys chocolate truffles! In a nutshell, I took my favorite vegan cashew truffle recipe and de-raw-ified it by using Baileys instead of almond milk. It was a wise decision, indeed. I LOVE St. Patrick’s Day. It’s always been one of my favorite holidays,…

Grain-Free Peppermint Brownies

Last night, we braved the cold (ok, Tucson cold, but still) to head up to Mt. Lemmon for our family photos. The chill was just the perfect weather to enjoy the peppermint brownies I have for you today. Perfect for a wintery dessert after being out in the cold! I think our photographer Jacquelynn got some…
