These granola cookies were originally an experiment – quite like some of my other “creative” recipes. They’re right at the sweet spot when it comes to cookies – healthy-ish, hearty, just slightly sweet, crunchy and chewy all at the same time. From start to finish, they’re done in 30 minutes! They just require one bowl and are very easy to make. You don’t need to … Continue reading Granola Cookies | Crunchy Chewy Oatmeal Cookies

Two-ish years ago, I remembered the decadent dessert that is brandy snaps: the buttery, sugary caramelized casing with a hint of brandy and ginger. We have a source who home-makes these treats, which are best accompanied by creamy vanilla ice cream and a fudgy chocolate sauce. But somehow, that afternoon we realized that we had no chocolate sauce. I whipped up something with a couple of ingredients … Continue reading Chocolate Sauce | Quick, Easy, Vegan, Multi-Purpose!
A quick, simple, super healthy chocolatey treat sounds a little too good to be true but this vegan avocado chocolate mousse is exactly that.
