Peanut Butter Swirl Black Bean Brownies

  Brownies…I remember first time trying a brownie on an airplane, on my way to Mexico last year. My immediate thought was “I could eat this every day!”. Believe it or not, that airplane brownie was pretty darn good, probably because being full of cr@p. And yes, I have never had a brownie in 13 years of living in Canada. True fact. I love dark chocolate and I love peanut butter. Who doesn’t?! A few months ago I developed a Black Bean Brownie Recipe, which is a big…

No Bake Peanut Butter Pie

I feel like I’ve been cheating…on my wine…with this no bake peanut butter pie. Let me explain. On January 1 I woke up and thought it would be cool to live a year without wine or any spirits. If you just joined, let me put it this way => I’m not an alcoholic, far away from it, but I like a few glasses of vino on weekends. I got 2 kids (3 for now, see previous post) and I do really-really-really need to vent at times. The truth is,…

Healthy Double Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Cookies

Oatmeal cookies are one of my favourites. And I can’t control myself near dark chocolate. I eat peanut butter for breakfast every day. Coconut oil – can’t get enough of it.

And another great thing – no extra bowls to mess, just one! These chocolate cookies are one of my favourite quick cookies…

Peanut Butter & Quinoa Protein Balls Recipe

I told you I was going to have a Meatless Monday and 1 vegan day a week. Yep, here we go… I made these vegan, vegetarian and gluten free Peanut Butter & Quinoa Protein Balls the other day. Yum and made with yams… I also made Pesto No Pasta Spaghetti the same day and will post the recipe shortly. Alex tried it, said it’s healthy and proceeded with his Thai takeout. LOL. He is not as much of a health nut like me, but still super healthy.

Roasted Sesame & Peanut Butter Protein Bars

Roasted Sesame & Peanut Butter Protein Bar Recipe

Homemade protein bar is my saver when I’m shopping, out with the kids or any time I know I won’t have access to a healthy food. As well is my Magic Bullet Green Smoothie ( I add a scoop of brown rice protein powder to it and some people think its gross:)). Protein bars cover healthy fats, carbs and protein and the smoothie has my greens. I’m good to go! That’s why I never eat junk when I’m out.
