It’s true: Happiness fills me when I bring it others. There is nothing I love more than watching my friends and family enjoying themselves after indulging in one of my entertaining givings (not always food). Time spent with your loved ones must be cherished to the last second; that pure bliss and happiness is not found on every corner.
Today’s creation were these magical brownies. Flourless. Vegan. And only 45 calories each. What more do you want?!

Happy Valentine’s Day! My day consists of eating lots of baked goodies because I’m in love with food! These vegan cookies were chewy and delicious. They might not have been the most beautiful cookies, but it’s the taste that matters!
Ingredients: Oats, Almonds, Dark Chocolate, Agave Nectar, Applesauce, and Ground Flax Seed.
Process oats to make oat flour. Process almonds to make the almond butter. Grind up the dark chocolate bar you have laying around. Mix all ingredients with 3 tablespoons of the applesauce. Whisk waster and the ground flax seed together to make your flax egg. Immediately add it to the mixture with a tablespoon of the agave. Form the dough into little balls and bake for 15 minutes at 325 degrees.
Enjoy, you lovebirds! Or lovebird, if you are the most awesome person ever spending your day with delicious food
The title says it all. Pure bliss! I could not help myself from eating five of these yummy bliss balls in a matter of minutes! Oops! Well, they are raw and vegan…So they can’t be that bad….right?
Ingredients: Cocoa Powder, dates, cashews, vanilla extract, agave nectar & shredded coconut. Process everything but the coconut. You can add more of any of the ingredients if it isn’t a sticky mixture yet. Roll the dough into mini balls, and then coat with the coconut. Put these bad boys in the fridge overnight and eat them all up!
My lovely bestie, Juliet, said, “These taste like yoga.” What a saying!
20 raw pecan halves
1 tbsp cinnamon
2/3 cup of amaranth dry
4 tbsp. Flax seed + 5 tbsp. Water (flax egg)
8 pitted Medjool dates
Cook the amaranth accordingly to the box instructions. In a food processor, blend the dates and mix into the amaranth. Add the pecans to the processor for 3 pulses, until they are chopped, not ground. Add the pecans, flax egg and cinnamon to the amaranth. Mix well and flatten onto a pan. Refrigerate overnight and cut into 8 bars (or balls, if preferred).
They are extremely chewy! Be sure to store them with wax paper so they don’t stick together. Feel free to add oat flour if you you want a more dense bar.

I ran out of my vegan yogurt and was craving something fluffy to eat with my granola this morning after a strength training work out. Very quick and tasty!
1/2 cup of Blueberries
30 Red Grapes
1/4 cup of Almond Milk
2 tbsp. of Flax Seed
1/2 cup of Granola (your choice!)
Blend the banana, blueberries, grapes, almond milk and flax seeds together. Sprinkle the granola on top once the mixture is smooth. I put it in a bowl to eat with spoon, but you can put it in class and drink it, too!
