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

toffeeoatmealcookiebarsvegan-0172

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 […]

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

veganturtlecookie-4125

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 […]

Vegan Pumpkin Pie Squares with Gluten-Free Graham Cracker Crust

pumpkinpiesquaresvegan-2816

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 […]
