This past weekend… [Continue Reading]

Dairy-Free Coconut Acai Bowl

I’m not sure what I love more about this Dairy-Free Coconut Acai recipe, its vibrant purple color or the rainbow unicorn bowl it got served in!

Oatmeal raisin cookies with white beans

It’s been awhile since I made a dessert using beans, but a sponsored post opportunity with the S&W Beans was all I needed to get back in that game. I got to sample all of these, but decided that white beans would be most appropriate for an oatmeal cookie: To make the cookies, I made chunky gluten-free… [Continue Reading]

Chocolate-Orange Hemp Bites
