One Bowl Jumbo Chocolate Chunk Cookies (vegan + gf)

Having my mom here for the last several days was such a treat. I’ve felt a bit like a basket case lately as we’re dealing with some behavioural issues (the munchkin, not the mom!), and having her here made the world of difference. As I’ve written about in my birth story, the presence of other […]

Salted Chocolate Avocado Pudding Bowls

  With an almost bursting bladder and plenty of nervous anticipation, yesterday I headed off to our anatomy scan ultrasound appointment. I always find I get anxious for pregnancy ultrasounds in general, but this one especially. I felt a knot in my stomach all morning long. It’s a fairly long ultrasound since they check all […]

Mini Pumpkin Pie Tarts with a Sunflower Cookie Crust (Nut-free, Vegan)

A couple weeks ago, I received a reader recipe request. Let’s call him “Jason”. Jason asked if I could create a nut-free version of my Raw Pumpkin-Maple Pie with a Baked Oat Crust (found in my cookbook, page 247) because his wife can’t have cashews and pecans. Apparently, it was tormenting her not to be […]

Homemade Pumpkin Pie Spice Mix

For the past couple seasons, I’ve been on the hunt for pumpkin pie spice mix. And I’ve been slowly going crazy not being able to locate it in any local grocery stores. Don’t they know how many they would sell from me alone?! I longed for the day I would cross paths with it, making […]

Cherry-Strawberry Chia Seed Fool with Vanilla Bean Coconut Whipped Cream

My sister and family are here visiting this week and they brought us about 10 pounds of freshly picked cherries from my brother-in-law’s parent’s house (they have about 7 cherry trees…jealous!). It was like Christmas morning when this loot arrived. I’m eating these beauties by the fist full. Adriana is going wild over them. It’s […]

Salted Almond Butter Freezer Fudge + Everyday Detox Cookbook

My friend and fellow blogger, Megan Gilmore, from the popular blog Detoxinista just launched her first cookbook this week, Everyday Detox: 100 Easy Recipes to Remove Toxins, Promote Gut Health, and Lose Weight Naturally.

Gourmet Chia Seed Pudding (from scratch!)

Your comments on my Kitchen Quirks story were quite hilarious. They also led to even more funny stories here at home and among our friends and family. I got a text from a friend shortly after posting. “I’m reading your kitchen quirks post aloud to my husband (because he is absolutely nuts about the dishwasher […]

Banoffee Pie from My New Roots

I’m preparing to host my very first Easter dinner tomorrow – a totally plant-based menu with all the fixins! Go big or go home, I say. Usually we go to my in-laws for Easter, but this year my sister-in-law had to stay close to home for an event so we offered to host. I’m making […]

Crazy Good Coconut Oil "Chocolate" Bark

  Do you have any kitchen quirks? What about your partner or roommates? Maybe you are wondering what I mean by a kitchen quirk. Basically it’s anything that drives your significant other batshit crazy. I’ll offer some examples: – Always sticking produce stickers on the counter despite your husband’s pleas not to (my long-time readers […]

3-Layer Nut-Free Dream Cups (Vegan, GF)

I’m starting to twitch. That usually happens if it’s been longer than couple weeks without a blog post. Can you tell it’s been a bit crazy over here? I’ve had this draft open for over two weeks on my computer. As much as I don’t like being away from blogging, it’s refreshing to step back […]

Raw Chocolate Pudding (Vegan + No Added Sugar)

Sometimes it’s hard to transfer my swirling brain into the written word. Eric has this funny gesture that he does when he’s poking fun of my overactive mind. Picture him making buzzing noises as he motions electricity coming out of his head. He knows all too well that I’m often unable to quiet my mind. […]

Snickerdoodles! (vegan + gluten-free)

Meet my favourite holiday cookie of 2014 – the vegan and gluten-free Snickerdoodle! I’ve been testing all kinds of Christmas cookies this year and I decided to pick the best of the bunch and share that recipe with you before the holidays. The humble-looking Snickerdoodle doesn’t get enough respect in my opinion; it’s often overshadowed […]

Double Dark Chocolate Coconut Macaroon Tart (vegan, gluten-free, grain-free)

Halloween week without chocolate is simply a crime. We must fill our quota! Luckily, I have the perfect solution.. After teasing you with this dessert the other week (and seeing you lose your mind over it) I figured I better deliver the goods. I set a lofty goal of making this chocolate pie as friendly […]

Gooey Pumpkin Spice Latte Chocolate Pudding Cake (vegan + gluten-free)

OMG, this pudding cake. Pumpkin + chocolate + brewed coffee + pumpkin pie spices + almond milk = heaven in a dish! Heaven in a gluten-free, vegan dish, that is. And it’s easily made nut-free just by swapping out the almond milk for coconut milk. Want it soy-free too? Just use soy-free chocolate chips (such […]

Pumpkin Oatmeal Anytime Squares (vegan, gluten-free, oil-free)

My Toffee Cinnamon Oatmeal Cookie Bar recipe seems to be the hit of the season so far on the blog. I’ve had quite a few questions about how to make the bars oil-free, so I figured it was a good opportunity to play around with the recipe. Pumpkin naturally lends moisture to baked goods and […]

Toffee Cinnamon Oatmeal Cookie Bars (Vegan + Gluten-Free)

Houston, we have a working oven! This is what I screamed to Eric when I turned on our newly installed oven for the first time this weekend. To celebrate this momentous occasion I made something I’ve been craving for the past 6 weeks – warm, fresh-out-of-the-oven cookies. [Fact: store-bought cookies just aren’t the same.] Then […]

Easy Carob Almond Freezer Fudge + Frosty Recipe

Oh do I have a fun treat for you today. It showcases one of my old favourites – carob. Have you tried carob powder before? The pods of the tropical carob tree contain a sweet pulp which is dried, roasted, and ground into powder form. Carob is caffeine-free and contains antioxidants as well as calcium, […]

Two-Layer Raw Chocolate Brownies

We’ve been having a total love affair with these raw brownies for the past couple weeks. A little nibble here, a little nibble there. I’m actually amazed that they’ve lasted this long, but just a small square is enough to satisfy my chocolate cravings. That’s how you know a chocolate dessert is the real deal. […]

{Almost} Instant Chocolate Chia Pudding

Shhh…I’m supposed to be unpacking right now. Don’t tell anyone you saw me here!! Last week turned into blender week. My Vitamix was one of the only kitchen things I refused to pack in a box. For the record, I moved it very carefully in my clutched, loving embrace! Before packing up the kitchen, I […]

The Big Vegan Banana Split

Some days or weeks are imprinted in my memory forever and this was certainly one for me. Wednesday evening I received a call from my editor. I assumed that the call was simply to talk over the logistics of my upcoming radio tour, but it was much more than that. “Angela, we just found out […]

Heavenly Carrot Cake Baked Oatmeal

I’m still digging up cookbook recipes that I didn’t include in the final book. It’s like finding buried treasures in my Google document! The beauty of all the recipe testing that went down over the past 2 years is that I have so much inspiration leftover to tweak and share here – such as this […]

One Bowl Double Chocolate Chunk Cookies

When a girlfriend spoils you with your favourite chocolate bars, you make double chocolate cookies. It’s just what you do. No questions asked. The other day I realized that I don’t have many nut-free cookie recipes on the blog. Sure, my most popular Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies are nut-free, but there really isn’t much else […]

Banana Bread Muffin Tops

I have a couple recipe “blogging rules” that I always try to follow: If I don’t feel a recipe in my heart, it doesn’t go on the blog. I’m true to that, especially over the past few years. Sometimes I drive myself a bit nuts (like the multiple recipes I tested this week and did […]

Chewy Molasses Spelt Cookies with Candied Ginger

I wouldn’t consider this a revolutionary concept in the slightest, but a simple tweak to my daily routine has changed everything. “Make a list.” That’s the advice Eric gave me several weeks ago when I was fizzling out. <—my term for juggling too many things at once with no clear direction on how to get […]

Turtle Oatmeal Cookies with Pecans, Chocolate, and Medjool Dates

Let’s keep this holiday goodie train chuggin’ along, with a new cookie recipe that I made recently for a holiday get together. It’s inspired by the Turtles candy, with a nutty, “buttery” base of toasted pecans, caramel-like Medjool dates, and mini dark chocolate chips. They did not last long. I bet you’ve never had an […]

Peanut Better Balls

I have fond memories of making peanut butter balls with my mom and sister every holiday season. The women in my family are all big peanut butter and chocolate fans, so it seems like a natural holiday dessert to splurge on. In fact, I know when they see this post they’ll be running to the […]

Creamy Dreamy Peppermint Patties (Vegan + GF)

Welcome to chocolate and peppermint season! It’s one of my favourites, for sure. There’s something about this combo that puts my taste buds in sheer ecstasy. So invigorating! So peppy! I feel like I can conquer the world when I’m eating peppermint and chocolate in the same bite. Strange, but true. A few of my […]

Vegan Pumpkin Pie Squares with Gluten-Free Graham Cracker Crust

After my last post, I knew I was destined to make a dessert using my gluten-free graham crackers. It’s just the right thing to do. Plus, a girl can only eat so many graham crackers for breakfast! You can imagine how nervous I felt testing this recipe – not knowing if it would turn out […]

Gluten-Free and Vegan Graham Crackers

I’ve been in denial about this whole “November” thing. And this whole dark-at-5pm-thing. Ouch. The fall season is passing before my eyes. Suddenly, the nights feel super long and I’m going a bit stir crazy. Instead of resisting it, I’ve taken up evening hot yoga a few times a week. It just feels so good […]

3-Layer Almond Coconut Chocolate Bars

I may not have my costume picked out or a pumpkin carved yet (how the heck is it Oct 24th?), but the vegan candy options are a-go. That is, if they last until the weekend. I’ve been working on these layer bars for a few weeks now. It took a bit of patience to get […]

Mini Crunch Bars with Peanut Butter Shell Drizzle

When Mother Nature gives you a rainy, dreary weekend in October, I say dive into Halloween prep. Look online for costume ideas, troll the dollarstore aisles for decorations, buy a massive pumpkin, and make candy bars. You’ll be feeling better in no time! As a kid, I always loved Crunch Bars. There’s just something about […]

No Bake Elvis Bars

When I wrote this post yesterday afternoon I was sitting at my desk with a mini fan blasting ten inches from my face. My wrist rested on a frozen gel-pack and my hair was a lovely style of poof. Please remind me not to bother blow drying my hair when it’s this humid out. We […]

Irresistible Chewy Trail Mix Cookies (Vegan + Gluten-free)

Welcome to my dream cookie. Ram packed with healthy ingredients, chewy, crispy around the edges, thick and hearty, with dark chocolate sprinkled throughout. Not one who is content with a mediocre cookie, I tested these 4 times before they were deemed “in the vault”. That’s a lot of cookie eating! It’s a tough job I […]

Summer Stone Fruit Crisp

Recently, I got back into weight training. And when I say recently, I mean that I still can’t move from my workout two days ago. Is it too soon to talk about getting back into something when it’s been less than a week? That’s debatable, I suppose. Really, the pain is not that bad, but […]
