Chocolate Coconut Bites

Y’all these chocolate coconut bites are life. They are so easy to throw together, healthy, vegetarian, vegan, gluten free, whole grain, refined sugar free, and totally tasty. What more could you look for in a snack? Not much. I make this in a fairly big batch and they last me all week. While…

Dark Chocolate Orange Brownies

It has been awhile since I created a brownie recipe for the blog. Today felt like a good day. As I was contemplating what kind of brownie I was craving, orange chocolate came to mind and I just couldn’t shake it. So, let me introduce you to the most amazing Dark Chocolate Orange…

Banana Cake with Chocolate Peanut Butter Icing- Whole Grain

Although we eat tons of bananas, inevitably some occasionally get by and are too ripe, and need to be used another way. As was the case in the SIX bananas I had get past me. I needed a BIG cake to use all these bananas in, hence this lovely banana cake with chocolate peanut butter…

Blood Orange Cardamom Cake

I am so obsessed with citrus right now. I swear, I am eating it in one form or another every single day right now. It only seemed natural to incorporate it into my baked goods as well. I love an orange / cardamom combo, so that is where the idea for this cake was born. So…

Orange Madeleines

I just got a madeleine pan for Christmas and have been waiting patiently to use it. Madeleines are such a beautiful cookie/cake. Let me clarify what I mean by that, there seems to be some discrepancy about what they actually are. Some insist it’s a cake, some insist it’s a…

Spiced Pear Cake

This spiced pear cake is one cake I can barely resist. I generally eat a piece or 2 of the baked goods I create, then can walk away. This cake is another story, I cannot seem to leave it! I served my family and myself a few pieces, then gave the rest away. I had…

They are still incredibly delicious, but are also pretty healthy. I made them with 100% whole wheat, reduced the sugar and…

This whole grain chocolate bundt cake is a cake you are going to want in your life. Not only is it a healthier version, but I promise you, no one will know. It is moist (sorry), tender and so chocolaty! It is such a great sweet treat. It’s all about the pan Anytime…

Whole Grain Muesli Cookies

I really love Muesli. It is such a great, healthy way to start your day. Did you also know it is great in a variety of baked goods as well? Over the next few weeks I will show several. The Whole Grain Muesli Cookies will be the first recipe. They are simple to make, tasty…

Pomelo Carrot Bundt with Whole Grain

I have never liked grapefruit, which is weird because I like just about any food. Call it prejudice, but I just can’t stand them. I am part of a #seasonalfoodiecollab on Instagram. Each month we are choose 2 seasonal foods and use one or both in any type of dish we choose. It…
