Baked Oatmeal Breakfast Bars with Carrots

My right thumb’s knuckle can’t heal properly because I keep grating carrots day after day, baking oatmeal breakfast bars and scooping carrot cake truffles.

Healthy Rum Balls

I’m trying really hard to maintain more plant-based diet and this salad is a quick way of doing so. And please don’t think that my kids were…

Usually fudge is made of condensed milk, butter and sugar. But not this clean, vegan and gluten free chocolate fudge. Full of healthy fats avocado and walnuts are combined with natural sweetness of banana, antioxidant power of cocoa powder and sprinkled with coarse sea salt for that mixed feelings taste.:)
