Pumpkin Blondies

Pumpkin Blondies

It feels good to know that I am “normal”, as for being a young woman in her twenties who has nothing better to do with her time than Pinterest and bake cookies– I am right on track because I am full blown obsessed with  P-U-M-P-K-I-N! […]

Raw Banana Cream Pie v/gf

Raw Banana Cream Pie v/gf

There was a time when my sister and I would stay up into the wee hours of the morning with two forks and a banana cream pie! :/

Now days we treat our bodies better and eat clean with only organic whole foods! I made this decadent pie in remembrance of those dark nights full of refined sugar and high fructose corn syrup! Those days are over! My sister even lost 60 lbs by choosing the clean lifestyle!

You guys, this is serious stuff. I highly advice you not to eat all of this in one night. I know, it’s so good and highly addicting but just because it’s healthy doesn’t mean you can eat the entire thing in a day! (this is really a message for myself because I have zero portion control)

Here ya go! Enjoy <3

Crust:

1.5 c. Peanuts

13 Soft Dates (soaked if they aren’t soft enough)

2 Tbsp Coconut oil

Prepare a spring pan with coconut oil. Place peanuts in food processor and pulse until chopped into small chunks. Add dates and coconut oil and process until combined. Pour crust ingredients into pan and press down and about an inch up the sides.Let it sit in the freezer while you prepare your filling.

Filling:

1 Large Banana

1 Cup Cashew’s Soaked at least 4-overnight

1/4 C. Coconut Cream (I used full fat coconut cream from Trader Joe’s, put in the fridge overnight, open the can and scrape from the top)

2 Tbsp Coconut Oil

1 Tbsp Lemon Juice

1 Tbsp Agave

1 Tsp Vanilla Extract

Place cashews in processor or blender (I used my blender for this). Blend until it’s as smooth as you can get it. Add remaining ingredients and blend some more! Blend until it’s creamy and fluffy! 🙂

Pour banana cream ingredients over crust.

GARNISH (optional):

Enjoy Life Dark Chocolate Chips (or chocolate of choice)

Bananas Chopped

Peanuts

Chocolate Drizzle (melt 1/2 c. chips in a double boiler and add 1 tbsp coconut oil)

Wrap pie in saran wrap and freeze for at least 2 hours or more before serving. Store in freezer.

Homemade Nutella

This might be the easiest recipe of  your life. Just kidding, it definitely won’t be but it is super easy. 

Here it goes HOMEMADE NUTELLA! RAW! VEGAN! and just pure joy! <3

nutella

  • 1 Cup Raw Hazelnuts
  • 3 Tablespoons Carob Powder
  • 3 Tablespoons Agave
  • 1 Tablespoon Coconut Sugar 
  • 1/8 Teaspoon Salt
  • 1 Tablespoon coconut oil
  • 1/2 Cup Almond Milk

Add your hazelnuts to your food processor and process until it’s as fine as you can get it. (my processor is dull so mine came out chunky but I like it like that) Then add agave and oil. Then add the rest and process until smooth or in my case – chunky 🙂 

Enjoy xo

Skinny Pancakes Drizzled with Blueberry Sauce

Skinny Pancakes Drizzled with Blueberry Sauce

Holy Mother of Pancakes!

These decadent cakes are so good and under 400 calories for the WHOLE STACK!!!! 

IMG_2240[1]


These will keep you full until lunch time and then some! So here is the ridiculously simple recipe! 

  • 1/2 Cup Old Fashion Oats or Oat Flour (glutenfree)
  • 1 Small Banana or half of a large banana
  • 3 Egg Whites whisked to fluffiness 
  • 1 Tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 1/2 cup blueberries (frozen or fresh I used frozen)

Prep a non stick pan with coconut oil and put it on medium heat. Put all your ingredients in a blender except the blueberries. Once all your ingredients are blended up, they are ready to be made into pancake joy! Just like every pancake recipe, pour desired amount into the pan and once bubbles rise on the batter, flip them jacks over to cook the other side. Repeat until you use all of your batter. 

To make the blueberries sauce, get a small pan and add 2 tablespoons of water. Turn the heat on high and once it starts to boil add the blueberries and let simmer for 3-4 mins. I popped most of my blueberries with the spatula while they were sauteing to get a juicier sauce.  

Pour the blueberries over the pancakes and enjoy!!! <3 

Any questions, feel free to send me an email! xo
