Pumpkin Brownies (Gluten Free, Vegan)

Pumpkin Brownies | gluten free, dairy free, nightshade free, egg free, vegan

It’s fall and that means pumpkin is finding it’s way into everything, including these dairy free, grain free, vegan pumpkin brownies. Your taste buds will thank you for being so damn festive.Β  IΒ love brownies. As in LOVE. LOVE. LOVE. brownies. They are perhaps one of the greatest food inventions ever. The gooey chocolately awesomeness just cannot be replicated. Chocolate cake is great, but it’s NOT brownies. Chocolate mousse? Also great. Also not brownies. Chocolate cookies? Yeah. SO not brownies....

Flourless Blondies a la Ambitious Kitchen

Flourless Chickpea Blondies

I’m just gonna go ahead and say it. These blondies are freakin’ amazing. There is no need to beat around the bush or to build them up and taunt you. Simply put, these are the best “healthy” dessert I’ve had in a really long time. Better than the flourless brownies. Better than the chocamole (and y’all know how I feel about that). I’ve already made 2 batches. In 4 days. And The Hubster (who hates chocolate) finds them to be as irresistible as I do. Just do yourself a favor and make sure to always keep the ingredients on hand. I plan to. Because I also plan to bring these...

Sun Butter Bars

Sun Butter Bars

Day 6 of The August Break is all about diagonals. Which is great, considering I’ve been wanting to post about these bad boys for a solid week now. I made these for the August session of the Propelle Mastermind. They were such a huge hit with the ladies, that I only got to bring home a single solitary bar. That seriously never happens! They were also a huge hit with The Hubster (who enjoyed that last bar). All I want to do now is make them. Even play around with ingredients like chocolate chips, whole peanuts, sunflower seeds, and the like. Which is a bit ironic considering I have always...

Gluten Free Protein Bars

Gluten Free Protein Bars

When I was told that my food sensitivities had returned with a vengeance, I was a bit perturbed. When I was told that in addition to the usual suspects of dairy, nightshades, alcohol, cinnamon and MSG, that I would have to avoid gluten, fruit, and all refined sugars and artificial sweeteners…I almost passed out. And then I realized that I give this kind of news to people every week, and somehow manage to find suitable meals to suggest for their weekly menus. Now it was my turn to get creative. And creative I got, with these gluten-free protein bars. I even used coconut oil for the first time (for the...

Blackberry Bars

Figures that the week I teach about the harmful effects of too much (refined) sugar, I go on a sweet binge. And then was too embarrassed to post about it for fear that you might think I am a.) crazy, b.) cruel, and c.) don’t deserve to be called a health coach anymore. I blame Pinterest. It started innocently enough. I was looking for a new recipe for dinner. Which proved to be a bit harder than originally anticipated. Because clearly the only thing worth pinning is desserts. I mean, why on earth would anyone want to pin healthy and satisfying recipes? I. just. don’t. know. While I was searching...
