Chocolate Chip Cookie Bowl

Yes, a decadent chocolate chip cookie bowl that counts as a wholesome breakfast!  (Or snack, or dessert, or lunch!) There are so many great ingredients secretly tucked into this creamy smoothie bowl.  It also delivers plant-based protein  and healthy fat. The cookie-like smoothie base is sweetened with pears and dates, and gets a malty flavor…

Strawberry and Vanilla Chia Pudding

Chia pudding is that weird vegan alternative that I used to loathe the texture of.  It was slimy and eye-bally.  I really had to start experimenting with flavors and ratios of chia seeds to liquid in order to find something that I not only want to eat, but actually crave. This combination of creamy vanilla…

Vegan Sweet Potato Scones with Maple Drizzle

These delicious treats are something special to look forward to with a hot cup of tea.  Free of refined sugars and also gluten and dairy-free, they can be a guiltless indulgence.  The maple glaze is also free of refined sugars, but delivers a complementary sweetness to the spicy scones that, in my mind, takes this…

Vegan Chocolate Waffles – gluten-free

Apples are full of flavonoids, a type of phytochemical that may inhibit…

Banana Breakfast Porridge

Creamy, soothing and tummy-warming, I love this whole-grain based breakfast.  It is perfect on a cold winter’s morning. You can start with a base of any whole grain you like.  I used sorghum here.  I also like this made with millet or even brown rice.  You can grind the grains dry, and then cook them…

Cherry Chocolate Overnight Oats

This recipe is a perfect take-along breakfast.  It’s loaded with hearty oats, inflammation-fighting cherries, antioxidant -rich cacao, and omega 3 fats.  You can make it the night before and grab it as you head out the door.  Plus, it takes like dessert! Oats are a low-glycemic grain that contain a powerful fiber called Beta-Glucan, which…
