No Bake Nutella Pie

After promising this no bake nutella pie recipe a bazillion of times, it is finally here. It ended up being easier said than done in December. Amazing how time gets “eaten” by what we have to do vs. what we would rather do. But I finally did it – “baked”, photographed and “gave birth” online to this healthy chocolate hazelnut pie. And if you are not into chocolate, you might like my healthy peanut butter pie, no bake banana cream pie or no bake pumpkin pie. Prepare to be amazed…

Healthy Rum Balls

Until today, if you asked my boys what are their most vivid Christmas memories besides a psychic Santa at the mall (thanks to a bluetooth ear piece) and going on a West Coast Express Santa train downtown to drink free hot chocolate and juice at daddy’s work, they would have said “Mom listening to Frank Sinatra non-stop”. And they would have also added immediately “She listens to him all year round!!!”. Every July Adam asks me “Mommy, why are you listening to Christmas music in summer?”. Well, what can I…

Anti-Inflammatory Red Smoothie

Tasty, pretty and healthy red smoothie with raw beets, juicy strawberries and a generous dose of healthy fats from coconut oil. Beets: the antioxidant betalain gives them their signature color and is an excellent anti-inflammatory. When added to the diet, beet benefits include repairing cells and adding high levels of inflammation-fighting potassium and magnesium (Source).

Healthy Gingerbread Fudge

This healthy gingerbread fudge does not contain condensed milk or loads of sugar but rather healthy fats and naturally occurring sugars. The sacrifice is you have to keep it frozen and serve right before enjoyment. So, put on your cutest apron, quickly zoom between the guests and stack it back in the freezer. 

No Bake Black Bean Brownies

Don’t let anyone know these no bake brownies are made with black beans and applesauce, let them try first. I have heard it many times from my readers and friends, they say none of their family or friends can taste black beans and brownies are usually gone in no time.

Cacao Nibs Brownie Bites Recipe

If you need a late afternoon kick in the butt, these Cacao Nibs Brownie Bites are for you. I have an issue with a word “balls” lately, for example moist balls, let’s stick to bites… So, this cacao nibs recipe is naturally sweetened and full of a caffeine kick from raw cacao powder and cacao nibs crunch. I just love the crunch, so more brain satisfying than just a smooth snack. Skip metabolism and sleep scrutinizing cup of coffee, and stay away from messing with your brain processed sugars. Have…

Banana Oat Bars

These banana oat bars is another favourite quick breakfast of mine. I have quite a collection by now, which you can check out under breakfast category. These bars are also very similar to banana oat protein muffins but without protein powder. I love having oats for breakfast because they are not wheat (everything in moderation) and cook quickly. I usually would pour boiling water over quick oats for a few minutes, then top with yogurt and fruits. These banana oatmeal bars are a baked alternative to traditional oatmeal. Naturally sweetened…

Superfood Chocolate Bars

Did you know you can make dark chocolate at home?! All you have to do is combine equal parts of cacao powder, coconut oil and maple syrup on a stovetop and then freeze => coconut oil fudge. That chocolate already is a step above store bought organic dark chocolate, which is a step above Hershey’s and Cadbury. But these superfood chocolate bars sweetened only with dates, full of superfoods like coconut oil, chia seeds, cacao powder and coconut flakes are so 2020.

Coconut Protein Balls

Healthy no bake coconut protein balls recipe with whey protein powder, dates, almonds and coconut flakes. They make great pre or post workout snack. I recommend using only unflavoured and unsweetened protein powder for this coconut protein balls recipe.
