Chocolate Cookies – SUGAR-FREE

These awesome little chocolate cookies are: Gluten-free Dairy-free Sugar-free (yes, really!) Egg-free I can hardly even believe it, but I’ve finally figured out how to make a sugar-free, vegan chocolate cookie that’s easy to make! I’ve been working on this project for a few months now, and I’d almost given up. It seemed impossible that…

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…

Sugar-Free Strawberry-Lemon Cheesecake

  This delicious strawberry-lemon cheesecake is a play on a vegan key lime pie recipe that I made recently. I didn’t realize that the final result of this recipe would be a cheesecake-y flavor and texture, but since cheesecake is one of my favorite desserts, I was pleasantly surprised! Plus, this vegan cheesecake recipe is…

Lemon “Loaf” + Icing

This is a fun dessert that is unlike any other dessert I’ve come across. Although intended for baking in a loaf pan (a cake pan would work too), this “loaf” is candy-like and indulgent. But, even though it’s indulgent, this is a guilt-free dessert that’s vegan, sugar-free, gluten-free, and dairy-free! Almond flour may be substituted…

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,…

This sauce is perfect for any dish of steamed vegetables and rice/grains. With a variety of flavors subtly incorporated together to create an invigorating yet comfort food-esque topping for veggies.

Delicious Homemade Hummus

I’d forgotten how much I like hummus until I very recently was put in the position of having to try it again. Except this time, I got to make it the way I wanted to (no store bought stuff, just whole ingredients put together). Chickpeas are high in vitamin B15, a little known vitamin that can improve energy…

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),…
