raw coconut-pecan cocoa bites.

In August, I experimented with a great protein powder to create a homemade energy bar – see that recipe here – and decided to see what else I could amp up with it. Today’s featured yumminess is another simple breakfast-inspired recipe that’s

vegan sugar-free truffles, two ways.

At the beginning of August, my sweet husband turned 31. Obviously dessert was in order.  This Perry the Platypus is not the cake I made.  Well, this was the cake I made, two years ago. (It’s entirely vegan and gluten-free, in

coconut squash macaroons.

It’s a [very] untraditional looking little Easter egg, no? I’m not much of an Easter chocolate or Easter baking kind of gal. Hot cross buns and Cadbury Creme Egg cupcakes aren’t really on my radar these days.  Coconut, however, absolutely
