Raw Walnut Brownies

Sometimes the simplest recipes are the best. I don’t think that’s true always, but certainly in this case it is. It’s amazing what you can make with just dates, walnuts, and cocoa powder. This is something I’ve been making for years now. I think I learned the originally recipe from a food blog that no…

Copycat Chocolate Hazelnut Larabars

One of my most popular recipes is the raw/vegan chocolate cake I made last Summer, and every time someone new comments on the post or makes it for themselves and blogs their own mouth-watering photos(I’m looking at you, Texanerin) it makes me want it again. Well, cake every week is a bit much, even if…

Copycat Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Larabars

When you’re a food blogger, you end up having some pretty weird “snacks”. Leftover cheesecake in the afternoon? Sure. Chocolate granola for lunch and dinner some times. Anything goes. That’s all great and delicious but there are times when I wish I ate a little bit healthier. Of course, the answer’s simple; if you want…

Semi-Raw Chocolate Rum Truffles

This weekend I’m moving back to Providence, which means I’ll be just a short bus ride away from my favorite bakery again. Lord help me, my stomach, and my wallet. I keep trying to make some of their desserts in my own kitchen to save a little money, and I think I’ve figured out another…

Chocolate Peanut Butter Snack Balls

Lately I’ve been obsessed with these raw fruit and nut snacks. And I’m always obsessed with chocolate peanut butter. I can’t understand what took me so long to combine the two. I’m not going to sugarcoat these and say they taste like Reese’s peanut butter cups; they don’t, and anyone who could get that flavor…

PB&J Balls

One of my favorite lunches growing up was a PB&J sandwich on white Wonderbread. Who doesn’t love peanut butter and jelly? And Wonderbread—that was just great stuff before anyone realized bread shouldn’t be glow-in-the-dark white. I’m getting sidetracked. What I meant to say was that these taste like the filling of a peanut butter and…

Raw Salted Almond Brownies

The last time I made raw brownies, I didn’t share the recipe. I wasn’t planning on it this time, either, but these came out so well I felt I’d be holding out if I didn’t share them. These almonds from Trader Joe’s are incredibly addicting; I’m pretty sure they’re all gone by now. Anything with…

Raw Salted Caramel Chocolate Pecan Torte

Happy New Year! I wanted to get the year off to a sweet start, so here’s the dessert I made for Christmas, which just happened to turn out to be one of my favorite desserts ever. As soon as I saw this recipe, I knew I wanted to make it. I love things that are…

Eat Healthy: Raw Brownies

I could never give up chocolate. It’s a daily thing for me. Even when I want to eat healthy, I’m always drawn back to it, and frankly I have no willpower to resist. That’s where the beauty of something like raw brownies come in. These are sweetened with dried fruit and the only fat comes…

Fig And Hazelnut Balls

One of the things I said I was going to do now was eat better, especially when it comes to sugar. Now I’m not delusioned too think I could ever give up the sweet stuff; instead I’m just looking to eat more sweets that also have nutrition to them. And for that I look towards…
