Keto Chocolate Chia Puddings

Looking for a keto breakfast idea? Look no further! Honestly, even if you’re not doing keto, these chia puddings make the perfect breakfast or little desserts. The best part is they are super easy to make! The main preparation step is allowing the chia seeds to sit overnight to form a chia “pudding.” I like making multiple chia seeds at once, that way I have breakfast prepped for multiple days. This recipe makes 2 chia puddings.

Apple Cinnamon Scones

Caramelized apples are one of my favorite healthy treats. By caramelized apples, I mean apple slices that are sautéed in cinnamon and coconut oil. They get so fragrant and taste incredible! Apple Cinnamon is one of my all time favorite combos.

Gluten – Free Sweet Potato Gnocchi

Well by Mel

Are you a sweet potato or a regular potato person? I personally love sweet potatoes! You can make them savory, you can make them sweet – they are such a delicious add to meals!

My favorite type of pasta is gnocchi but I don’t eat regular gnocchi too often because I generally avoid gluten. I’ve found Trader Joe’s cauliflower gnocchi to be a great substitute; however, I personally like making foods from scratch as often as possible in order to control what ingredients and how much of each ingredient are put into my food.

I’ve made this sweet potato gnocchi a few times now and it is great! It’s a lot easier to make than you would think. This recipe is both gluten free and vegan. The key ingredient in this recipe is Cassava flour.

Thai- Inspired Peanut Spaghetti Squash

Well by Mel

I’m a huge fan of spaghetti squash, so I’m loving that it’s in season right now. I usually cook it with tomato sauces for more of an Italian dish. However, I also really like to cook with spaghetti squash for more Asian-inspired dishes.

I love making this recipe because it tastes like Thai-food, but a much lighter version. This recipe is made with lots a veggies and topped with a peanut sauce. It is gluten free, dairy free, and can be made soy free.

Low Sugar Chocolate Almond Butter Bars

I have a few guy friends who have found a lot of success on the keto diet and were able to lose a decent amount of weight. I’m overall neutral when it comes to the keto diet. I’m not a proponent of the keto diet, or against it. I enjoy eating fruit (as you can see by my frequent smoothie bowl posts), so I don’t think it would be a sustainable or satisfying diet for me. However, after hearing friends’ success stories on the keto diet, I am now curious.

Dessert Dates

If you haven’t noticed, I’m a huge fan of dates. They taste so sweet and delicious all by themselves. I like to use dates as sweeteners in recipes instead of any form of added sugar. Unlike straight sweetener such as cane sugar, coconut sugar, maple syrup or even honey, dates are sweet but contain fiber. Fiber is the indigestible are of food that are associated with several potential health benefits. Fiber also helps keep you feeling full and satisfied.

These stuffed dates are my favorite little dessert pieces. They take about 10 seconds to make and offer the perfect amount of sweetness after a meal. After dinner, I always crave something sweet, but I don’t typically have a lot of sweets around. These desserts are perfect to satisfy this sweet craving because they can be assembled quickly and provide just the right amount of sweetness.
