These Chocolate Raspberry Popsicles are a refreshing frozen chocolate treat to enjoy on a hot day. These pops, filled with raspberries, are also vegan!In the summer, one of my favorite ways to get my chocolate fix is through a fudgesicle. As a kid and to this day, my mom always has them in the freezer and they’re still one of my favorite snacks to grab when I’m at her house. They’re smooth, creamy, and just chocolatey enough to satisfy any of your chocolate cravings.

I’d always heard that you could make homemade fudgesicles just by freezing chocolate pudding. What?! I’ve always been super curious to try, and curiosity finally got the best of me. I finally gave in and bought a popsicle mold (though you could just as easily make these in paper cups + popsicle sticks).

This Peanut Butter Granola is the perfect breakfast treat. It tastes like dessert, and it's gluten-free, dairy-free, vegan, refined sugar-free, and absolutely delicious!It’s no secret chocolate and peanut butter are my favorites. I drone on and on about it frequently enough, so I was surprised at myself that I hadn’t created a chocolate peanut butter granola recipe yet.

Don’t worry, all has been resolved and Bakerita now has a kick butt chocolate peanut butter granola recipe (if I may say so myself). Keeping in fashion with most the other granolas I have posted on Bakerita, this one is totally gluten-free, refined sugar-free, dairy-free, and vegan. It sure doesn’t taste like it though!

These Raspberry Mint Brownies use tangy raspberries and fresh mint for an addictively fresh and minty taste in these rich and fudgy chocolate brownies. I started a garden! A very small herb garden consisting of three plants on my patio, but a garden nonetheless. Right now, we have rosemary, basil, and mint, but once I prove that I can keep these alive we’ll definitely be adding some more plants to the mix.

So far, so good – though the basil has gotten pretty wilted a couple of times there, thanks to the recent blazing Seattle sunshine. Thankfully it revives easily. What other herbs are easy to take care of?!

Fresh berries are way at the top of my list of my favorite things about summer, right up there with cold fruity cocktails, sandy beach days, and 10pm sunsets. Raspberries, in particular, are some of my favorites.

A few weeks ago, I convinced my friend to come raspberry picking with me about an hour east of Seattle, and we spent hours weaving our way through the raspberry bushes, pulling the sun-ripened berries right off the vines. Only about half of the berries made it into the basket – the rest were going straight into our mouths. There’s nothing like eating a raspberry just pulled off the vine, still hot from the sun. I could eat pounds of them, just like that. [Read more…]

You're only six ingredients away from these delicious Paleo Chocolate Almond Butter Thumbprint Cookies! This easy cookie recipe is also refined sugar free and vegan.Though I do have a crazy love for peanut butter that has been more than obvious over the years of writing this blog, I’ve more recently fallen in love with almond butter. It’s a little less smooth than most peanut butter is, but I love the texture it has, and the flavor offers something a bit different from peanut butter.

Almond butter has definitely been gaining in popularity, and it seems just about every big time peanut butter maker has been expanded into almond butter territory. Being the almond butter lover I am, I’m all about it. But! You can also totally make almond butter at home in the food processor and flavor it with whatever you want. One of my favorite ways to make it is this Dark Chocolate Coconut Almond Butter. [Read more…]

These Chocolate Chunk Espresso Blondies are soft and chewy with a burst of coffee flavor, tons of melted chocolate, and a little crunch from chocolate covered espresso beans!I’m all about baking shortcuts and making baking as fun and easy a process as possible. I know most people don’t like to fuss around with a ton of ingredients, and just want some delicious treats to be ready STAT. Though I’m normally a totally from scratch baker, I was recently contacted by the folks over at Krusteaz, known and loved for their delicious pancake and cookie mixes, about partnering to create recipes for them using their mixes.

Before I started baking from scratch, I loved these mixes and used to play around with them all the time. After looking over all their new delicious mixes, I said yes! [Read more…]

This S'mores Oreo Skillet Brownie has a graham cracker & S'mores Oreo crust with a gooey, fudgy brownie center and toasted marshmallows. How in the world did Nabisco come out with S’mores Oreos and not call them S’moreos? It’s outrageous. It was the perfect name waiting to happen. How did they miss it?!?!

I digress – but only because the contents are so good! I was pleasantly surprised by the S’mores Oreos. The outside cookies are totally like a graham cracker, and the filling is too obnoxiously sweet for me to really tell any real flavor difference, but you definitely get a little bit of chocolate with your graham crackers.
