Dairy-Free Raw Fudge Brownie Ice Cream

Ice Cream Friday: Raw Fudge Brownie Chunk Ice Cream

This recipe makes a LOT of ice cream. You’re probably fine with that. I am too. I pleaded with Tim to help me eat this dairy-free ice cream, as while everything in the recipe is healthy it’s not so healthy when you eat an entire batch on your own. He had one bowl, declared it […]

Vegan Matcha Ice Cream

Ice Cream Friday: Dairy-Free Matcha Chip

I decided there aren’t enough dairy-free ice cream recipes on this blog, so I’m going to remedy that by instituting ‘Ice Cream Fridays’. ‘Cause everyone loves ice cream on the weekend. This means I’m gonna burn through a whole lot of coconut milk and maple syrup, but I’m totally okay with that. I usually lean […]

Vegan Salted Chocolate Chia Pudding

Dairy-Free Salted Chocolate Chia Pudding

WHAT IS HAPPENING TO ME?!? In the last year I have mutated from a sweet ‘n salty hater into a salt shaker fiend who happily scarfs salted caramel ice cream and devours chocolate bars with sea salt. Is this what happens when you’re a grownup in your mid-30s – you suddenly begin eating salty chocolate? […]

Gluten-free and vegan coconut macaroons

Passover Lemon Coconut Macaroons (Gluten-Free + Vegan)

If you’re Jewish and grew up in Toronto, it’s very likely you had grandparents who flew or drove down to Florida for the winter. My mother’s parents bopped around a few rented apartments before purchasing their own condo in Lake Worth. It’s been nearly 15 years since I’ve been there, so my recollection is a […]

Healthy Gluten-Free Nanaimo Bars

Lentil-Spiked Nanaimo Bars (Gluten-Free + Vegan)

The last time I created Nanaimo bars five years ago, they were dairy-free, gluten-free and egg-free. But they weren’t exactly healthy, since they were full of white sugar and fake vegan margarine and processed gluten-free graham crackers. It’s been on my mind for a while to recreate a new version using whole food ingredients, but […]

Mini Gluten-Free Brownies with Carob

Mini Gluten-Free Carob Brownies

I have been a longtime carob lover. Carob for-evah! And carob folded into adorable mini gluten-free brownies? All the better. My love of carob doesn’t stem from being raised on a commune with hippie parents who served me broccoli trees and millet. Surprisingly, it comes from attending religious school. Each year on the Jewish holiday […]

Maple Vanilla No-Bake Granola Bars

It only takes seven ingredients to pull together a batch of these delicious no-bake bars. They’re high in protein, packed with whole-grain fibre and healthy saturated fats, and they’re naturally sweetened. Head on over to the Genuine Health sports nutrition website for the recipe! ‘Cause while I’m athletically challenged, I can still use protein powder […]

Popped Sorghum Squares

These were supposed to be popped sorghum balls. Then I got lazy, because it was Sunday afternoon and my book was waiting to be read and I didn’t want to spend extra time fastidiously shaping popped sorghum balls, despite how cute they probably would have looked in a photo.  So out came the loaf pan. […]

Grain-Free Plum Crisp

My balcony garden was a semi-bust this summer. Sure, the herbs did well. But my spinach died, the bees didn’t visit my zucchini, and raccoons ate the few strawberries that bloomed. Some of you might be flush with end-of-summer produce right now, eager to find creative ways to eat it, freeze it or preserve it. […]

Salted Caramel Pecan Swirl Ice Cream

Do you dig the sweet ‘n salty treats? I used to think these were opposing flavours that could never be best friends. Flakes of sea salt on my chocolate? Nah, I’d rather just flick ‘em off. As many of you already know, adding a bit of salt enhances sweetness, especially in baked goods. Given that […]
