No-Bake Carrot Cake Cream Cheese Bars

I hope everyone had a fun, relaxing and sunshine-y Easter weekend. This was my first holiday here in The Woodlands, TX. Will and I have had some rough times lately– we both lost 2 family members this spring all within a few weeks of each other and being away from the rest of our families…   Read More»

100 Calorie Cranberry Dark Chocolate Muffins

A 100 calorie muffin, can you believe it? By using fresh cranberries instead of dried cranberries, I saved a ton of calories and sugar and it gave the muffins a wonderfully tart, exciting flavor. These babies are whole grain and full of goodness with healthy ingredients such as unsweetened applesauce, Greek yogurt, cinnamon and pumpkin…   Read More»

Maple Gingerbread Cookies + Cookie Swap

This was my first year participating in the Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap and I loved it!! First of all, getting things in the mail is awesome (especially when they’re edible) and second, I was part of a group of over 600 bloggers that helped to raise $13,000 for Cookies for Kid’s Cancer, a national non-profit organization…   Read More»

Cranberry Chocolate Chip Cookies

I was in the mood to do some healthy-ish baking this weekend and since the holidays are coming up I figured I’d start testing out some cookie recipes.  I’ve also made these with mini chocolate chips instead of regular and both work. The mini chips spread further throughout the batter so you’re still sure to…   Read More»

Strawberry Cornbread Cupcakes

YES, these TASTE even better than they look and sound. I made these to share with some of my clients this week (don’t you wish you were one of my clients?). They’re subtly sweet and like most of the things I bake, they work for dessert or for breakfast. I think they’re more of a…   Read More»

Blueberry Pumpkin Oat Muffins

Good enough to have for dessert but healthy enough to have for breakfast! I took out the fat from this recipe (no oil and no butter) and replaced it with pumpkin puree and applesauce which keeps the muffins moist without losing flavor.  By having one of these instead of your standard Starbucks blueberry muffin, you’ll…   Read More»

Chocolate Peanut Butter Bread Pudding

This decadent dessert requires minimal prep time and little kitchen talent. The whole grain bread adds fiber; the soy, eggs and PB have protein, the dark chocolate has antioxidants, and the PB also has some healthy fats. A quick and easy dessert that won’t pack on the pounds (as long as you don’t eat it all yourself!)….   Read More»

Berry Simple Breakfast Bars

I got the idea for this recipe from Pinterest and tweaked it a bit to make a healthier version. It combines three of my favorite things that I eat almost daily: oats, berries, and dark chocolate. I ended up eating most of the bars as dessert, but they would work great for breakfast as well. Bake…   Read More»
