Chewy Rhubarb Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

We have been picking up a lot of rhubarb lately! So I have been trying to figure out how I can get creative with it in the kitchen. A sweet & crunchy rhubarb crumble was first…now I am coming at you with a mouthwatering chewy rhubarb oatmeal raisin cookies. 

Oatmeal raisin cookies have got to be my favorite type of cookie. I used to always get one with my mom when I was a kid at our local coffee shop. It was chewy, sweet, and I absolutely loved the texture of the whole oats and gooey raisins. 

These cookies combine my favorite cookie with the holy grail of sweet summer vegetables: rhubarb. A chewy and soft cookie embedded with whole grains, oats, raisins, and stewed rhubarb. …

No-Bake Mint Mousse Pie

In honor of St. Patricks Day, I decided to create something green…because that is what us non-Irish people do for this holiday right? 

Last year I posted a green mint smoothie bowl on my Instagram for today, but I wanted to step up my game and create a delicious dessert that you can indulge on any day. 

A super creamy, airy, and fresh mint filling paired with a dark chocolate brownie crust isn’t as complicated as you think. No oven required just a blender and a freezer.

Vegan Carrot Cake (Moist & Fluffy)

My dad’s birthday is in about a month and I wanted to create his favorite cake…Carrot cake. I gotta say it’s one of my favorites too, along with double chocolate cake…I have a slight obsession with chocolate.

Pumpkin Tiramisu Parfait

I was brainstorming fall recipes the other day for the upcoming season, and I came across a Pumpkin Spice Syrup from Oh She Glows and I immediately ran to the kitchen to see if I had all the ingredients. 

Let me tell you…..this recipe is definitely a staple for me now for fall.

I had the great idea to use it in this pumpkin tiramisu recipe as a layer in the parfait. The syrup was soaked up nicely by the spiced vanilla cake, and I couldn’t stop eating it!

Vegan Raspberry Vanilla Bean Cheesecake

I recently went raspberry picking and have been meaning to make recipes using them! I have made two recipes so far: raspberry crumble, and this cheesecake. Both have turned out amazing! 

The internet is filled with vegan cheesecakes that happen to be raw. Their main ingredients are usually coconut milk. This recipe somewhat falls under that category, but don’t let it scare you away! This cheesecake is coconut-free, super creamy, and of course delicious!

S’mores Bars | A Healthier Version

You know what one of the best parts about summer is?? The food of course! One of my favorite being s’mores….yeah I know not the healthiest! Ever since going vegan it has been quite hard to find vegan marshmallows. They are out there, but only carried in specialty supermarkets and are a bit pricey. One step down from your traditional smores’ is a smores’ bar! 

I have seen these everywhere from pinterest and instagram to magazines.  These are an easier and more indulgent way to enjoy the delicious combination of graham cracker, chocolate, and toasted marshmallow. 

So I decided….how exactly would I be able to “healthify” a s’mores bar?
