Treats

Chocolate Power Balls

Power balls are a tasty mouthful when you’re craving something sweet but are trying to stay clear of sugary treats.  With the combination of protein powder, nuts and coconut, they can serve as a healthy little snack.  But be forewarned, it is very easy to overindulge in these little guys! There are so many different variations […]

Easy Gluten-Free Carrot Cake Cookies

As you may have noticed, these carrot cake cookies are gluten-free but not grain-free.  Normally all my recipes are both but I decided to add some gluten-free oatmeal for a little extra texture.  Therefore, they are technically not grain-free but could easily be converted by omitting the oats and adding additional almond  flour.  I honestly didn’t […]

Grain-Free “Monster” Cookies

I’m sure most of you have heard of monster cookies…chocolate chips, M&M’s, peanut butter chips and oats.  This recipe is my healthier version of monster cookies that are grain-free and loaded with dark chocolate chips, walnuts, shredded coconut and cranberries  for a little extra sweetness.  What I love about these cookies is that they are crispy around the […]

Loaded Banana Sandwich

I got the idea for this banana sandwich when I saw a similar one online and I decided to put my own twist on it.  There are countless combinations and you could totally make this your own by adding all your favorites.  I used almond butter and some homemade blueberry, peach chia jam for the inside and […]

Soft and Chewy Gluten-Free Granola Bars

Are you a chewy or crunchy granola bar lover?  Well, if chewy is your jam then you will love these!  Conventional store-bought granola (energy) bars can be very unhealthy and it’s frustrating to me that most people think they’re making a healthy snack choice.  Do you want to know exactly what you’re fueling your body with?  Simple answer…make your […]

Kombucha Margaritas

Who doesn’t love a great margarita?  The only problem as we all know is the amount of calories and sugar in one of those innocent and delicious looking drinks. So what if you could enjoy one (or two!) without all the guilt?  Enter the kombucha margarita.  Whether you enjoy a blended strawberry or a regular on […]

Lemon Blueberry Chia Pudding

Like many parts of the country, we’ve had a crazy, cold Spring this year.  I’ve been so ready for warm sunshine, flowers and green grass.  It’s finally happening here in Virginia and the smell of spring is in the air!  And nothing represents spring to me more than the combination of lemon and blueberry.  This chia pudding […]

Coconut Flour Banana Nut Bread

What do you do with your bananas when they get too ripe to eat?  Usually I cut mine up and freeze them to add to protein shakes or chia pudding.  Today however I was in the mood to do a little baking…soooo banana bread it was!  This bread is nothing fancy and by no means time […]
