Applesauce Waffles

I gotta admit that breakfast in my house can be boring if I don’t plan in advance. And many times I don’t. And frankly, lately my kids have been eating a lot of Nature’s Path cereals. Just because it’s life but giving them organic, whole grain and low in sugar cereal makes me feel better. I just got caught up in a Holiday rush of things and finally it’s over. Hallelujah. I don’t know how you feel but I need a vacation. To make and freeze a large…

Cranberry Orange Oatmeal Cookies

Last week I was craving lighter, nutty and full of season’s flavour cookies. Similar to almond flour thumbprint cookies I made last year. I was craving the taste of baked ground almonds in my mouth. Luckily I’m my own boss when it comes to food where as Alex and kids have to eat what I make. Right after dinner, I quickly went through my kitchen’s supplies and 40 minutes later I had these delicious cranberry orange oatmeal cookies. Delicate, airy and super moist. The next day I took a few…

Healthy Chocolate Fudge Cake

Decadence and health are the utmost right words for this heavenly dessert! Made entirely with fruit and nut derived products. Yes, it’s rich in calories and should be consumed in moderation, but nothing can beat the nutrition and health benefits of plant based food. So, enjoy your slice and share a few. This chocolate cake was inspired by this video of children working in slavery on African plantations, harvesting cocoa for our first world kids Halloween candy, poisoned with chemicals and in shiny wrappers. Majority of which ends up in garbage on November…

Almond Joy Protein Balls Recipe

I have to tell you right away that this protein balls recipe tastes best warm. Just saying because I know many of you do not read the post completely. And I get it, no worries, we are still friends. As soon as I nailed this protein balls recipe and took a first bite, I almost died in heaven! These protein balls came out so soft, fluffy and tender. I didn’t expect that at all because most protein balls are dense. But because I didn’t use dates or any…

Chocolate Chip Protein Cookies

Last night was everything someone who wants abs doesn’t do. We had dinner at 7PM, then I worked on a new recipe post, followed by Diners, Drive-Ins & Dives with everyone around me having snacks, then I went to bed and read a few food blogs. Needless to say, by 11PM I was falling asleep starving. Who does that?! A hint, don’t do that. But nothing happened. I didn’t binge, I didn’t die and fell asleep. Hear that?! A self-talk can do a lot. While I was laying in…

Cranberry Almond Flour Thumbprint Cookies

This Holiday Season I am so in line with the majority of North American population – I’m already baking, got a menu for the next 30 days, Christmas shopping list is in my iPhone, Alex installed the lights on the house and an inflatable Santa is waving from my porch. I should post a photo of my perfect Russian crazy home.;) I made and froze these almond flour thumbprint cookies at the end of November and they are all long gone by now. I don’t know why but…

Healthy Strawberry Rhubarb Crisp

Follow my blog with Bloglovin Remember I told you last week our butter-cream friends came over and I made them this spinach and feta dip?! So, they brought over a berry crumble. They always make me eat desserts, otherwise we might not be friends. It was good! Who doesn’t like a berry crumble or a crisp made with fresh berries in season?! I had to recreate my guilt-free version of it. A little bit of thinking and digging, here is what I came up with.
