Happy Wednesday, friends! If you’ve been around here for a while, you know I loooooove my smoothie bowls. They’re one of my favorite breakfast treats – so versatile, and way more filling than plain smoothies.

There’s something just more satisfying about being able to dig my spoon into my breakfast and eat it, rather than just slurping it down through a straw. Oh, and with bowls, you get TOPPINGS, and we all know that’s the best part anyways ;) [Read more…]

When I started making this tart, it was going to be something else entirely. An almond-crusted tart, with chocolate and berries. Alas, I made a last minute switch to peanuts in the crust, and after tasting the peanut butter-y deliciousness, that idea was scrapped and this one was born, being built as I went.

Oh man, what an amazing creation it turned out to be! This is peanut butter & jelly at it’s finest – and perfect for these warmer days, since there’s NO baking required. [Read more…]

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!

I’m not much one for candy bars anymore, but I used to be ALLL about them. I had many favorites – Twix and Reese’s were definitely at the top of the list, but Take 5 Bars had to be my ride-or-die favorite.

I’ve always been of the opinion that fudge should be easy to make – like very easy. Never ever have I bothered to fuss over a candy thermometer for good fudge, because it’s so unnecessary and stress-inducing.

My old, unhealthy favorite fudge recipe was pretty easy, but my new super easy refined sugar free + vegan fudge recipe is even EASIER. Like, no cooking necessary. Just melting the coconut oil. That’s my kind of easy. [Read more…]

Sooo…I feel pretty bad for everyone who has been stuck in a pile of snow this week, with their power out, and blizzards swirling all around, and temperatures that are way too cold for me.

Especially because here in San Diego, we’ve been having an absolutely beautiful week of sunshine and more than a few of those days have passed 80ºF. In fact, as I’m writing this, it’s 8:15 PM and I’m sitting outside in a dress and I’m not even chilly. [Read more…]

Since coming off of my first Whole30, I haven’t gone too crazy with eating everything I wasn’t allowed to during it. In fact, most of my meals are still compliant. I like eating that way, and even though I’m not crazy strict about it, I’m still trying to eat more cleanly and as healthily as possible, while still keeping things delicious :)

Of course, I’m tasting my baked goods, but trying not to eat too much of them, and keeping things mostly Paleo too, so I’m not throwing my body too off track. One of the only off limits foods that’s made it’s way firmly back into my diet is peanut butter. [Read more…]
