Brookie Bars

Sometimes you just can’t pick between a brownie and a cookie, so both it is!

These bars are the perfect sweet treat that naturally sweetened with dates, vegan, gluten free, oil free, and soy free! I’d love to hear what you think if you make them!

Lemon Lavender Poppyseed Cakes

Lemon lavender anything is my absolute favorite in the Summertime! It’s the perfect balance of sweet and earthy.

I love baked goods, but sometimes in the warmer months they be a bit too heavy for my liking, so I wanted to create a delicious cake recipe that wouldn’t leave anyone feeling heavy or bogged down. These mini cakes are gluten free, vegan, grain free, refined sugar free, and oil free–making them the perfect baked treat for the Summer!

So, why not combine my latest obsession with my favorite sweet treat–chocolate chip cookies!

Carrot Cake with Cashew Frosting

Spring is finally here and when I think of Spring, I immediately think carrot cake EVERYTHING. Carrot cake is one of my favorite treats, but I have never really found a recipe that I love.

When it comes to desserts, for the most part, I like to keep the ingredients healthy and wholesome so that I’m not left feeling heavy.

Matcha Spinach Pancakes

PANCAKE DAY!

I love pancakes–so why not make pancakes that make you feel energized and ready to take on the day, rather than the heavy standard pancakes that can give a sluggish, time for a nap feeling!

These matcha spinach pancakes are packed with goodness with no added sugars, no dairy or eggs, and they’re gluten free, contain some dark leafy greens, provide an energy kick from the matcha, and keep you feeling satisfied long after. Plus they’re green, and who doesn’t love bright green pancakes!
