Raspberry Almond Coconut Bars

When life gives you raspberries you make a dessert…because simply just eating them alone isn’t enough. I gotta say I have a sweet tooth.

Picked up a whole crate of freshly picked raspberries from my local fruit/veggie market and I almost ate 2 boxes before we even got home.

Paired this delectable & juicy berry jam with a soft and delicate almond base, crunchy sliced almonds, and toasted coconut.

The perfect breakfast bar!…

Peanut Butter Cookie Sandwiches w/ Cashew Cream Filling| Healthy-ish & Vegan

I know I know…It is after Easter and I should probably slow down on the treats, but you can’t say no to chewy peanut butter cookies?

I have been dying to recreate my peanut butter cookie recipe that I posted about a year ago, as I know I can make some changes to them and make them even better. So what did I do? Filled them with a delicious coconut cashew frosting and drizzled on a bit of dark chocolate. Pass me the whole plate please! 😉

Lemon Blueberry Muffin Cake

I just celebrated my birthday yesterday, August 19th! It was a blast. I visited the farmers market, and enjoyed a delicious dinner at Plum Bistro (my favorite vegan restaurant in Seattle…highly recommend). 

I started off my birthday with a homemade ice cream cake made by my lovely mom. I then of course had to make my own bday breakfast…I simply couldn’t resist. I made a huge batch of french toast topped with an assortment of berries (ft. on my instagram Healthienut). One of the berries being blueberries. We had so many leftovers that I had to create a recipe with them! 

I have been craving muffins lately, but wanted to twist it up a bit. So this super fluffy, moist, and sweet Lemon Blueberry Muffin Cake was made!

Vegan Pumpkin Peanut Butter Cups

Just another pumpkin flavoured recipe coming at you LOL. You can never have too much pumpkin….well I guess maybe. I whipped this recipe up today. It was super quick and easy and a perfect little treat for this season. 

What I love about this recipe is that it’s super easy and a lot healthier then your traditional Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups….and in my opinion it tastes a heck of a lot better. All of the ingredients are relatively healthy, but sweet enough to cure that sweet tooth at the end of the week.

Vegan Pumpkin Bread

 

Okay..Okay…I have been slightly obsessed with pumpkin flavoured food/drinks lately so whats better then some delicious pumpkin bread?! I remember a couple weeks ago I went to the store and stocked up on 10+ pumpkin flavoured things…a little crazy? I know! 

Surprisingly I have never had pumpkin bread before so when I chose to make my own recipe for it…I was a little hesitant. Needless to say, it was a bit hard.
