How often is it that you find a clean alternative to a cookies and cream smoothie? Not very. Trust me, I’ve done my research. Once you make this smoothie once, you’ll be hooked on its thick, creamy, milkshake-like consistency that you’ll want to make double to last you through the day….
I can’t find words to describe this blissful combination of dates, cacao, spiced coffee, and walnuts. It’s a soft, yet chewy, chunk of chocolatey goodness that’s too good for some descriptive adjective. If you’re looking for a brownie that tastes better than an actual brownie, then these Coffee Kissed Chocolate Walnut Brownies are the ones for you. They’ll fool you by tasting as unhealthy as ever, while they’re actually one of the healthiest layered brownies out there and are boasting with antioxidants and omegas with a kick of caffeine. YES PLEASE….
When life gives you cookies, you make Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Sandwiches. And there’s just no questioning that. Sure you could go to the store and buy a pack of processed cookie dough, but you and I both know it wouldn’t be as tasty and, not to mention, healthy as making it on your own. I promise it’s easy as can be and will be a major crowd-pleaser. Before you get your panties in a bunch, this filling is vegan and gluten free, and when it’s paired with the right cookie it makes for a mouthwatering dessert….
I ran out of bananas, my snacking cabinet was looking a little empty, and I really wanted something sweet. I don’t mean the I’m-gonna-get-fat-if-I-eat-this kind of sweet though.

Mini. Chocolate. Chip. Muffins.…
You must be here because you like truffles. I don’t blame you, especially when they’re dairy-free, gluten-free, and easy to make. Like really, really easy to make. I don’t know if it’s my temptation to actually try making a truffle on my own or my love for strawberries, coconut, and chocolate that got me to make these Easy Strawberries and Cream Truffles in the first place, but I’m not complaining….
I don’t know how, but it’s already February aka either one of the greatest, or worst, months of the year depending on your current relationship status and what the weather is outside. One, it’s Valentine’s Day and two, it’s freezing (in New York at least). Well whether you’re spending Valentine’s day cuddled on your couch watching reruns, making dinner for your hubby, or going out with the girls this year, these Valentine’s Day Jello Heart Jigglers are going to be what you’re bringing to get that party started!…
Before we dive in, I give you full permission to indulge in this banana bread turned triple chocolate banana bread before you embark on your New Year’s resolution. Why not end 2014 with a bang, right? This is the cake that you’re going bring to your family’s house for the holidays, bake to impress your boyfriend, and/or make all for yourself before you start your kale and quinoa diet come January 1st. This is the cake. I wrote this blog up like ten times before and it got deleted all ten times, so I’m gonna make this one quick for ya….
