Chocolate-Mucuna Brownie Bites

Chocolate brownie bites are perhaps one of my favorite snacks! You can add a lot of nutrients into these guys without compromising on flavor.

Chocolate Chip-Mucuna Bean Happiness Cookies

I used regular wheat flour in this recipe, but you can easily make these cookies gluten-free if needed. For example, since the majority of wheat flour in the US is brominated, you may choose to use alternatives even if you don’t have a sensitivity to wheat. Or maybe you’re avoiding wheat for other reasons! Whatever…

Like my other recent baking developments, these chocolate chip cookies are SUGAR FREE! And no, I don’t just mean refined sugar free… I mean completely devoid of added sugars.

Vegan Chocolate Cake Sweetened with Monk Fruit (Lo Han Guo)

This vegan chocolate cake surprised me. It tastes sweet enough to taste like a truly decadent treat, and I have to remind myself with every bite that it was sweetened with fruit, and that no I’m not being “bad” by having two slices. I was somewhat suspicious of monk fruit when I first read about it……
