Cacao Cashew Truffles

The weekends go waaay too fast if you ask me. Working during the week, I've always cherished Saturdays and Sundays. But now with a little one, I cherish those days off like they are gold.

And then Sunday afternoon rolls around and I sadly have to start planning for the next day. Which for me, usually doesn't require much planning, because I'm horrible at meal prepping, and everything else I need to do to prepare for Monday I'll put off or never do.

Almond Butter-Chocolate Chip Cookies {flourless}

When life gets busy or complicated, what you bake in the kitchen shouldn't be!  

During my pregnancy, all of my go-to foods that I ate everyday just don't sound appealing to me anymore. Strangely (and sadly) almond butter is one of them. I'm all about peanut butter, and I snack on roasted almonds daily, but just don't crave the smooth almond stuff like I used to.  So that means a huge jar of it sits in my cabinet...

Fudgy & Flourless Dark Chocolate Brownies {gluten-free}

Need a fudgy, easy brownie recipe? Well, here you go! 

There is something utterly comforting about brownies. The crackly tops and imperfectly cut squares give a hit of nostalgia. Always reminding me of the brownies my mom would make for us kids often - covered in a dusting of powdered sugar and so soft and good you could't just eat one.

These brownie are loaded with dark chocolate, and are pretty darn fudgy thanks to their flourless character. No flour = more room for chocolate.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Eggs {gluten-free, vegan}

Easter candy is officially covering store shelves, which means it's one of my favorite times of the year! It's the spring colors that get me excited. 

But, I"m not a big fan of the sugar overload and weird ingredients in most candy at the store. Which sadly includes those Reese's eggs. But let's face it, they are so so so delicious that I think everyone deserves to enjoy a peanut butter egg - so it's a good thing they are SO easy to make and with A LOT less ingredients than on the packages eggs ...and no refined sugar!

Cacao Bites {grain-free, sugar-free}

There are some days that we need something that feels sweet. The good thing is, that something doesn't necessarily need to have any sugar in it. 

That's where natural sweetness comes in. Which in this case, means lots of dates and some raw cacao powder for a deep, rich chocolately flavor that is bursting with magnesium, fiber, antioxidants... and may be my favorite superfood.
