Banana Nice Cream Bars

I don’t know why, but I love eating frozen treats when the weather gets cold. I guess it is along the same lines as people drinking hot coffee in the summer? Either way, I made this delicious dessert and had to share! I follow this account on instagram (@nataliesnaturalfood) and she made these banana nice…

Chocolate & Caramel Dipped Apples

For my last post of October, I wanted to make it a festive one! A few days ago, the 28th, it was national chocolate day and tomorrow is national caramel apple day, as well as Halloween. So I thought I would make a cute little snack that would be perfect for all these occasions. Typical…

Alfajores (Sandwich Cookies)

I realized this week, that I haven’t baked a lot recently. I’ve been making mostly dinners and easy breakfasts/snacks. But today, I changed that. I made a treat called alfajores (pronounced alfa-hor-es) which are sandwich cookies. I believe they originated in Spain, but they are very popular in South America now. The actual cookie is…

Cinnamon-Apple Cake

Like I alluded in my last post (Pesto Spaghetti Squash), I am doing themed fall recipes (this week and next week). This week I am using APPLES! 🍎🍏 Apples are such a versatile fruit because they can be used in sweet and savoury recipes. The first recipe I have for you is a cinnamon-apple cake….

Nutty Energy Bites (Recipe Redo)

I’m not a big fan of energy bars, but when I’m in a pinch, I love eating Larabars (not sponsored, they’re just my fave). They’re all natural and have no added sugars so they’re super healthy. Today, I made my own version of little larabar bites. I actually tried making a similar recipe back in…

Zucchini Banana Bread

I always seem to have overripe bananas at home. I get a bunch of bananas at the store and a few days later, they’ve passed their prime for me to eat. My favourite thing to do with them is bake! The obvious (and delicious) choice is to make banana bread/muffins. What I’ve made isn’t just…

Mini Peach Crumble Pies

OMG pie. I don’t know how else to start this post haha. Since peach season is still here for a little bit longer, I decided I should make a baked peach dessert! I found a recipe on a website called Dinner then Dessert for a peach crumb pie (link here) and I thought it was…

Almond Blondies

Happy Monday. Starting the week with a sweet post seems like a good thing to do. My friend made these blondies the other day and I had to make them as well. They are packed with toasted chopped almonds, a little almond extract and then more whole almonds for a pretty design and extra crunch….

Chocolate Covered Cheesecake Bites

About a month ago, I made these cheesecake bars (link here) which were absolutely incredible. If you are looking for a tasty and not too unhealthy cheesecake, you should make those. *The recipe I used calls for lemon (juice & zest) but I just omitted those for a more plain cheesecake. I couldn’t get that…

Chocolate & Cranberry Biscotti

If you like a cookie with a little more texture, I’d recommend making some biscotti. Based on the name – bi (two) and cotti (cooked) – these cookies are baked twice, which gives them a nice crunch. I’ve made almond-orange biscotti before that turned out incredible (link here) but today I tried a new recipe….
