Crunchy Cinnamon Cups

 Snacking on desserts is always a good idea, in moderation of course! What’s better than these little beauties right here? For the base, I used Cinnamon Chex cereal. It is a great tasting Gluten-Free cereal. I made it like Rice Krispies Squares. Press them into the bottom of a silicone […]

Jackfruit Smoothie

 Have you ever tried sweet jackfruit, I am in love with it! This was my first time trying it, and it’s so good! I used Cha’s Organics jackfruit; they have such a wonderful selection of organic foods, and the sweet jackfruit is one of them. If you want to see their selection […]

Cinnamon Cashew Cheesecake

 This time of year (February) reminds me of my dad. He would always stock up on cinnamon hearts; when I say stock up, I mean buy tons of them!!! He would come home daily with bulk bags of them! He would make sure that he would have enough to have […]

Creamy ‘Nog Overnight Oats (Vegan)

 Now that Autumn is officially here and it’s getting cold fast, I figured that it’s time to bring out the rich and aromatic spices. The velvet-like texture of the cashew cream, mixed in with the tantalizing tastes of nutmeg and cinnamon, make these oats a must-have for the upcoming cooler […]

Peach Overnight Oats

 I think overnight oats may have reinvented my breakfast life. I found that peaches pair well with oats, especially with cinnamon added.

Pecan Apple Pie Overnight Oats

 Yes, I’m in love with overnight oats! I wanted to come up with one that has barely any added sweetener though. Since apples are naturally sweet, it makes a perfect addition to it and the pecans give it a good crunch. In a saucepan combine water, apple, cinnamon and nutmeg. […]

Chocolate Raspberry Overnight Oats

 Before this, I hadn’t tried overnight oats and I’m not too sure why. This is obviously the way to go as it only takes 5 minutes to put everything in a jar and let it sit overnight. It’s so easy! Raspberry and chocolate always go together in my opinion, so […]

Vegan Pecan Pie Apple Squares

 Last night I was craving pecan pie, but knew if I had gluten I would be in too much pain. So I decided to make raw squares instead. I have no words to describe how good these squares are. The homemade pecan butter adds a richness to the top layer that […]

Pecan Butter

 I needed pecan butter for a recipe, so I decided to try making it on my own and it turned out great! It’s so simple to make and tastes like pecan pie! Start by toasting the pecans. You need to do this to bring out the oils and it gives […]

Carrot Cake Oatmeal

 I’ve seen different versions of carrot cake oatmeal but have never tried it. I don’t know why I waited so long to have it because it’s amazing!! It tastes like you’re eating dessert for breakfast, which is always great! Add everything all at once and cook. You can’t get much […]
