Grapefruit Almond Cupcakes | Gluten-Free

Before citrus fruits leave us and we move on to mangoes and other spring-summer fruits, I wanted to make these grapefruit almond cupcakes with their bold citrus flavor. I love the scent of grapefruit in any form: fresh grapefruit being sliced or juiced, a cocktail infused with grapefruit rind and even hand soap or body lotion. So much so, I got a grapefruit essential oil … Continue reading Grapefruit Almond Cupcakes | Gluten-Free

Oat Apple Chia Muffins | A Healthy Eggless Breakfast

Back when I lived in New York, I frequented the local Le Pain Quotidien when I wanted a sweet snack and a coffee. One of my favorite Friday morning treats was their chia muffin; their baked goods are delicious and definitely healthier than most other bakeries’ around the block. I was reminiscing that chia muffin when I wanted something lightly sweetened yet healthy to go with … Continue reading Oat Apple Chia Muffins | A Healthy Eggless Breakfast

Chocolate Orange Almond Olive Oil Cake | Gluten and Dairy Free

The moment I received a carton full of fresh, juicy oranges straight from the orchards of Nagpur, I knew exactly what I was going to use the first few fruits for – this chocolate orange almond olive oil cake (phew!). Orange and chocolate together make a classic combination, but that flavor is even more nuanced when paired with almonds and olive oil in this moist, delicious … Continue reading Chocolate Orange Almond Olive Oil Cake | Gluten and Dairy Free

Lemon Cupcakes | A Springtime Classic

In a departure from my usual style, this recipe is not vegan, gluten free, whole grain or healthy. Instead, it’s a celebration of spring! The bougainvillea plants are blooming on our terrace and I couldn’t resist the beauty and brightness they add to the scene; the lemons these days are spotless, smooth and fragrant. These lemon cupcakes that are so good they don’t need any kind … Continue reading Lemon Cupcakes | A Springtime Classic

guilt-free fudgy chocolate almond cookies

Guilt-free Fudgy Chocolate Almond Cookies

If you ask me, small-batch desserts are perfect. They satiate the need for sweet and you aren’t left with dozens of cookies or too many slices of cake staring at you waiting to be eaten every time you stop by the kitchen. This batch of guilt-free fudgy chocolate almond cookies was gone in an evening and deservedly so! It’s acceptable that they were gone so quick: this … Continue reading Guilt-free Fudgy Chocolate Almond Cookies

healthier pumpkin bread no butter

Healthier Pumpkin Bread | Whole Wheat & No Butter

Pumpkin bread brings back many memories for me – most of all, sitting at my desk at work in downtown Manhattan, enjoying a super strong cappuccino and my colleague’s freshly-home-baked pumpkin bread while tapping away at my keyboard and getting things done.  Fall for me is a time for new: new goals, crisp cool air, making travel plans, eating hearty vegetables. You wake up from the … Continue reading Healthier Pumpkin Bread | Whole Wheat & No Butter

Hazelnut and Dark Chocolate Millet Cookies

In keeping with my love for experimenting with alternative grains, I created these hazelnut and dark chocolate millet cookies. They’re perfect with tea or coffee or even to as a crispy addition to ice cream. I used finger millet flour (nachani or ragi flour) along with a little whole wheat flour. I’m sure these would work oat flour as well but I haven’t tried that. Do let … Continue reading Hazelnut and Dark Chocolate Millet Cookies
