Raw Dark Chocolate Cookies – Melaka, Malaysia

Here in Melaka my only real cooking appliances are a cute little steamer, a silicone cooking mat, three silicone cupcake liners, and a few small plates and bowls (along with a few spoons and forks). I have a couple of other random things, but no sauce pan (unless you count the steamer), blender, oven, or…

Superfood Coconut Oats – Brickfields, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Unfortunately, I didn’t get a photo of this. That’s what jet lag does to a person… I thought I took a picture, but I didn’t. I guess you’re going to have to take my word for it. So this is not a traditional Malaysian recipe (sorry). But, it’s a dessert, and it’s healthy. And here in…

Fresh Guacamole

I eat guacamole almost every day for lunch! Sometimes, I’ll use it as a side during dinner too. Avocados have a ton of health benefits (and they’re delicious), so I try to eat some avocado every day. This guacamole is easy and light, and is best enjoyed with fresh tortillas. Of course, it can be eaten…

Plain, Sugar-Free Cheesecake – VEGAN

I went into this expecting to add chocolate and extra stevia and call the night’s dessert a chocolate pie and not cheesecake. But, ultimately, I kept my mind open. Maybe this would actually result in something that really did taste like cheesecake? I didn’t know, but I tried it anyway. And it worked. Now, given, we’ve…

Melted “Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups”

This originally started as an experiment in cookie-making without granulated sugar options. I was hopeful after I saw how beautiful the cookie dough was and how nicely it formed into balls. But, after about 7 minutes in the oven, I saw that the cookies were melting all over the place! I left them until they’d…

Vegan Key Lime Pie — SUGAR-FREE

I haven’t ever been a “key lime pie person,” but I must say, this particular key lime pie stole my heart. Maybe my taste buds have developed, or maybe this is just the best key lime pie I’ve ever tasted ever, but anyway, I’m planning on making this again! We recently moved into our new house,…

Chocolate Brownie Bites

This was a super fun discovery! I’ve been seeing the “protein bite” trend going around on Facebook and Pinterest, and although I don’t really buy into the whole protein powder thing (I’d say the vast majority of protein powders have ingredients like sugar and/or some other unnatural sweetener along with a number of other trans-fat-related ingredients),…

Banana Chia Pudding

Chia pudding is slowly becoming one of my new favorite desserts. I wouldn’t have ever probably tried chia pudding again had it not been for our temporary change in diet, so I’m very grateful that I got the opportunity to experiment with something new! I’ve done chocolate chia pudding a few times now with great…
