Healthy Peanut Butter Frosting

Sometimes I set out to create a healthy version of a specific treat and I fail so hard that I actually win at creating an entirely different dessert! Which was exactly the case yesterday. I turned my mishap into a delicious peanut butter frosting which was then followed by a delicious cake–You will not want to miss that post tomorrow!

Healthy Edible Cookie Dough

Perhaps I’ve made it my mission in life to make as many versions of healthy edible cookie dough as possible because not only do I have an entire eBook dedicated to cookie dough recipes but this might also be my fourth or fifth one I’ve posted on my blog.

 

Safe to say that I LOVE cookie dough.


 

 

This recipe takes just a couple of minutes to throw together and you are ready to start inserting a spoon.

 

 

This cookie dough freezer well too! Unlike healthy cookie dough made using coconut oil, this dough tastes even better when it’s rolled into balls and frozen for a bite sized snack right out of the freezer!

Pumpkin Hummus – Dip it or Spread it!

It’s only the beginning of September and I’ve already made quit a few posts using Fall flavors and I’m not about to stop. Today I had a hankering for a sweet pumpkin dip. I wanted it to be light and fluffy – not too dense so I opted out of grinding up nuts and using that as a base. Finally, I landed on BEANS (sorry to all my paleo followers) and made the most epic pumpkin hummus protein dip or spread…

Strawberry Chia Pudding {Gluten Free & Paleo}

Confession time: I just recently started enjoying chia seeds. I know, I know, chia seeds are amazing, they are powerful and just so dang good for you–basically every health nut’s dream seed. So then why did it take me so long to jump on the bandwagon? Well, besides the fact that I am huge klutz and chia seeds always seem to find their way into every nook and cranny in my kitchen, I once had an epic ‘chia baking fail’ and it’s haunted me ever since.

Earlier this week I was struck with a random act of  courage while cleaning out my pantry I found two containers of chia seeds hiding in the way back. I dusted them off and decided I would give it go–starting off with the simplest of ‘chia seed’ recipes of course, Chia Pudding!

Healthy Brownie Batter Dip for One

DSC_2939

Use a cracker, a cookie, a chip, a spoon, heck even your finger–just do your thing.

No judgment here.


I used VitaFiber syrup in this brownie dip. If you haven’t tried it yet, you are missing out. It’s a ZERO sugar HIGH fiber natural sweetener. I like to use it in place of honey, agave, maple syrup or any sticky sweeteners I use when baking.

You can replace this syrup with sugar free maple syrup or any other sticky sweetener for this recipe.

DSC_2854

It’s okay to lick the bowl clean…

 

DSC_2901

Tastes best when using a salty dipping utensil.
