Sweet Treats & Baked Goods

Almond Fig Thumbprint Cookies (GF, V)

Every time I make these, they’re gone by the next day, and it’s just too easy…so be warned.  These cookies have a similar consistency and texture to shortbread, but softer, with all the flavors of sweet almonds and gooey fig jam.  

Chocolate Coconut Cookies (GF, V)

Vegan and gluten free chocolate chip cookies with coconut flakes and plant based ingredients that have a satisfying crunch, a whole lot of sweetness and perfectly gooey chocolate.

Arbonne Vanilla Protein Pancakes

Made with just a handful of ingredients, and best of all, you can make these in a blender for easy clean-up.  I personally love the flavor of the plant-based Arbonne vanilla protein powder, but really any vanilla protein will work.

170 Calorie Chocolate Pecan Muffins (V, GF)

Soft, moist and fluffy muffins, full of dark chocolate chips and crunchy pecans…and they’re vegan and gluten free to boot!  This my friends are what muffin dreams are made of!

No-Bake Chocolate Date Bars (V, GF)

The perfect mix between a fig newton and a fudgey brownie, these no-bake chocolate date bars are out of this world delicious.  With just a hint of sea salt, the flavors come alive, and I’ll bet you won’t be able to have to just one ;).

Chocolate Cranberry Muffins (V, GF)

Light and fluffy vegan and gluten free muffins full of raw cacao powder, mashed banana and applesauce, for a simple and delicious muffin that makes having chocolate for breakfast allowed!

Almond Fruit Tart (GF, V)

This is one of my all-time favorite recipes I have ever created, and it’s so beautiful too!  Your guests will think you spent hours on it but in reality it’s only about 15 minutes of hands-on work!

Orange Almond Muffins (GF, V)

It wasn’t until I started an elimination diet/detox that I quickly became a baker.  The need for comforting baked goods went through the roof, and although I’m not craving sweets, I am craving a warm muffin…like all the time.  These hit all the marks, and my goodness the aroma of orange and lemon zest waft

Blueberry Walnut Muffins (GF, V)

Never in my life have I considered myself a baker until now.  I am two weeks into a 30 day cleanse with Arbonne and I was craving some baked goods, so, here we have it, Arbonne-approved gluten-free, dairy free, vegan blueberry and walnut muffins.  Moist, soft and oh so delicious, you’ll want to make these

Cinnamon & Honey No-Oats Granola

Store-bought granolas and nut mixes can get very expensive, and not so great on the waistline.  In my effort to find yet another new and exciting breakfast idea, I turned to an oldie but a goody – homemade granola. This no-oats granola is baked with honey, cinnamon, sea salt and coconut oil for a deliciously sweet,

Chocolate Energy Bites

These chocolate energy bites are a no bake snack, packed with protein, fiber and so much flavor! You could also call them protein balls if you want, but any time I call it that, I can’t help but think of the Delicious Dish SNL skit with Alec Baldwin when he talks about his newest creation,

Buttermilk Biscuits – How to Make Them Super Flakey

There’s really never a bad time to enjoy a biscuit, especially when it’s on a holiday like Easter.  I have always been a huge fan of southern foods like fried okra, corn pudding, hush puppies and of course biscuits. The best biscuits are the ones that have tons of flakes, but there are a few

Torn Sourdough Croutons

We need to talk about croutons. They are so incredibly easy to make and store well in a plastic bag for up to three days after making.  I feel as if this needs to be a public service announcement.   It wasn’t until today that after enjoying some Papa Pomodoro Soup with Ryan did I realize
