Healthy Chocolate Peanut Butter Oatmeal Bars

No-Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Oatmeal Bars

Do you know how some days you just crave a Snickers bar for no absolute reason? And I don’t know about you guys, but it makes my stomach feel quite bloated at the end of it. It does keep me full for a few hours, but they’re way too sugary to keep having them every time.  But, you guys. I’ve been CRAZY obsessed with these no-bake chocolate peanut butter oatmeal bars! As a healthier replacement for the high-calorie and sugar-loaded Snickers, these are so addictive and for good reason: It’s a slice of heaven in a small square!  The best part is that you can keep having them without...

Flourless Peanut Butter, Oatmeal and Chocolate Chip Cookies

Um, I think I may have found my new favorite cookies… right here within my own kitchen. Hear me out: flourless peanut butter oatmeal cookies with chocolate chips enveloped in a soft and chewy cookie dough that’s sweet and a little salty.  I vaguely remember how I stumbled upon the inspiration for these little balls of delight: I figured that if I could make a peanut butter oatmeal bar, it shouldn’t be that difficult to make a spin-off… and so, here we are!  I present to you: the most satisfying gluten-free peanut butter oatmeal cookies.  I used to only fully enjoy cookies...

Easy Peach Crisp

If anyone asks you what a peach crisp is, it's essentially the same as a peach cobbler.  This double-layered dessert of sweet, juicy peach filling topped with healthy rolled oats is oven-baked to perfection!  Whether you’re going for a party or just a midday snack, bring these with you and everyone will be sinking their teeth into them in no time. Even better if you serve it with some vanilla ice cream. Here is my comprehensive guide to making peach crisp just like my dear grandmother would. Talk about throwback Thursday!  Recipe Ingredients  This peach crisp is made...

Easy Chocolate Avocado Mousse

I don’t compile a lot of sweet dessert recipes, but if I do make a dessert recipe, you best believe it’s got to be special to make it into the blog.  This avocado chocolate mousse never fails to catch anybody – and I mean ANYBODY – by surprise. Like… a dessert made of avocado? Are you for real?  Think of it as your favorite, most decadent chocolate mousse, minus the complication of egg yolks, whipped egg whites, and getting proportions right. Adding avocados is the lifehack you didn’t know you needed. Say hello to a smooth and creamy healthy dessert. I’m obsessed with this...

Lemon Blueberry Cream Cheese Coffee Cake

One habit I’ve gotten into – and has helped me for years now – is to follow a solid morning routine. I start by making the bed, do a light workout (these days it’s yoga and jogging) and then have breakfast before getting to my office on time to start the work day.  Some days, I can muster up the effort to cook a full breakfast spread for me and hubs. On other days, we take it easy with a sweet cake and cup of coffee. That’s where this recipe comes in: a lemon blueberry coffee cake with cream cheese.  This streusel coffee cake has a sweet cream cheese filling and tarty lemon batter....

Lemon Raspberry Bread

Baking is so different from cooking. In baking, you follow a set of instructions to a tee, put it in the oven, and hope for the best. Cooking, on the other hand, is much more relaxed: you season as you go along and there’s more wiggle room for mistakes.  Some find it stressful to bake, having to follow the exact measurements and the cooking methods. But for me and many other home cooks, baking is a form of therapy! I’m forced to be completely present in the baking process and this helps me forget about my errands, chores, or any other stressors.  And at the end of that, I’m...
