Black Bean Brownies

I’m not gonna lie, I had seen Black Bean Brownies before and was a bit skeptical about how they’d taste.

I was honestly so surprised how easy it was to put this recipe together and how much the batter tastes like brownies! Only this recipe is gluten free, vegan, contains no refined sugar, is rich in fiber, and made with real food ingredients!

Carrot Cake Muffins

It may be a little early, but I’m so excited to repost my Carrot Cake Muffins recipe! These Carrot Cake Muffins are my favorite spring treat.

Allow them to cool, and top with the coconut cream topping, which only requires you to blend 2 ingredients to make.

No Bake Samoa Cookies

It’s about that time of year for Girl Scout Cookies. I love Girl Scout Cookies and my all time favorite flavor is Samoa. I love the coconut/caramel/chocolate flavor combo and the cookie layer adds the perfect amount of crunch. Clearly, I love samoas. However, instead of buying girl scout cookies this year, I decided to make my own healthier version.

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.

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.
