Banana Peanut Butter Copycat Larabars

Banana Peanut Butter Copycat Larabars -

I don’t eat packaged bars often, but when I do it’s  a Larabar. Larabars have the shortest ingredient list all those wrapped-up rectangles that fall into the category of ‘energy bars’, so they are my bar of choice if I’m going to have a store-bought bar. But homemade copycat Larabars are my true bar of choice if I have 5 minutes, a food processor, and a lot of dates….

Lemon Blueberry French Toast Rolls

Lemon Blueberry French Toast Rolls

+-*I have paired lemon + blueberry in recipes before, but not like this. Not for breakfast. Not rolled, tacked, drowned, browned, sauced, zested, and devoured! This was a whole different lemon + blueberry experience.


Caramelized Mango Banana Ice Cream

+-*First ice cream recipe of the season on FF!! And it won’t be the last. I’m so happy to be able to eat ice cream again without needing 3 jackets and a campfire. I’m starting off this sweet summer season with something I’ve never tried before. Something you may have never tried before. Something that my…

Chocolate Cinna-Spelt Mugcake

+-*Mugcake: the original cupcake. That’s not entirely true. Cupcakes were originally baked in teacups before fancy pans and crinkly papers. Before cupcakes were even cool! So I guess technically teacupcakes were the original cupcake, but teacups already have a nauseating Disneyworld ride named after them, so lets show the mugs a little love.


Vegan Plantain Brownies

+-*I have posted many brownie recipes around here. In fact, I even had a Brownie Week last summer with 5 brownie recipes back-to-back. But those were all raw brownies. This is the first baked brownie recipe, and it is delectably different! Different because of the plantains. Delectable because of the chocolate.


Possibly Addictive Vanilla Date Bars

+-*I posted a picture on Instagram many, many weeks ago–an innocent looking stack of oaty bars, and an approximate recipe to go along with it. But since then they have stolen my vanilla-loving heart. I’ve made at least 20 batches! It’s a true oaty obsession.


Green Grape Chia Tarts

+-*Something green… Something green… Something green… This is a snapshot of my brain as I was wandering through the produce section brainstorming for a St. Patty’s Day recipe.


Crazy Fruity Fudge Bars

+-*The soundless split of an almost overripe banana peel–brown with yellow spots. The fruit is squishy-sweet from a week’s neglect on the counter and a couple of bruises. Despite the blemishes I toss it into the blender with a handful of medjools and a scoop of bittersweet brown dust. Wait a second…I thought this was a fudge recipe?


Secretly Cruciferous Crunchy Tacos

+-*This is another one of those recipes that contains ridiculous amounts of veggies disguised as a not-so-healthy meal. You’re looking at a rather unusual take on taco filling that is actually made from veggies, then topped with more veggies, and cradled in a crunchy corn shell. The good news is all you will taste is taco, not broccoli.
