I've paired a raw chocolate brownie with a pumpkin pie frosting and a drizzle of cinnamon chocolate sauce. They're really good!! IMG_0436Pumpkin Pie Brownies Makes 16 Brownies 1 cup al...

IMG_0332 Today is a cookie day! I went on a 6 hour mountain hike with friends this weekend and along the way I asked them for tasty recipe ideas. Someone suggested a coconut cookie… and naturally a splash of chocolate has to be added, so this yummy snack was born. The chocolate is totally optional but takes...

IMG_0241 The other day it was hot. A perfect "suntan on the patio" kind of day. I whipped up this thick, frosty drink and shared it with my roommate. We were happy girls. It's delicious and filling. I layered it with cacao nibs. IMG_0246Chocolate Banana Chia Frosty 1 cup nut milk 2 1/2 tablespoons chia se...

IMG_0119 Today's recipe is full of highly nutritious ingredients and makes an excellent snack anytime you need a hit of energy. The squares are great on their own but they're taken to a new level when covered in a soft fudgey chocolate coating. Mmm! Since the chocolate softens quickly, they need to be kept ...

IMG_0417 The summer months conjure up images of the beach, lounging in the sun, picking berries - and of course eating refreshing , cooling foods like fruit, smoothies, ice cream, popsicles, and salads. Ice cream cake fits perfectly into that category too, and so I made one the other day featuring the wild ...

IMG_0235 I'm a little cherry crazy these days. Near my area, in the Okanagan, we grow incredible cherries this time of year and they become a regular part of my diet. Besides daily cherry smoothies for breakfast, they make a great snack, and find their way into desserts. Of course they pair well with chocol...

IMG_0158 I had a brownie craving the other day… but I wanted a twist on a regular chocolate brownie, and so I began digging through my box of goodies to get some inspiration. Mulberries and coconut called to me. So did the big container of medjool dates. My kitchen efforts paid off. A chewy chocolate browni...

IMG_0152 Summer is the perfect time for light, creamy desserts. Of course ice creams, sorbets, milkshakes, and popsicles fit into that category but I also really love a refreshing parfait that bursts with flavour. Fresh young coconuts were sold at a festival I went to recently and I was inspired to turn the...

DSC_0996 When I had a hankering for some cheesecake last week, I had to put my thinking cap on to decide exactly what kind to make. Since I've recently made a white chocolate matcha cheesecake, and a pear berry swirl cheesecake, I decided to go for something chocolate. I added a hint of orange and a sprinkl...

IMG_0135 Chocolate and cherries go so perfect together. The other day when I was thinking of what to do with dried cherries, black forest cake popped into my mind. I've never actually been a fan of this cake, lol, but a raw version came to mind… and then I decided it would be fun to turn the idea into ...

Image These days power bars have become really popular. You can buy them at the grocery store, health food store, airports, and even corner stores. But the reality is that most bars are candy bars disguised in wrappers made to look like they're healthy. Naught naughty! My recipe for power bars are really...

This cake is really rich and quite intensive to play around with while making it, but the end product is worth it! This uses a smaller spring form to save on cost and time. You really only need a small slice anyways to satisfy, however that didn't stop my roommate from eating half of it for breakfas...

This recipe is so simple and really satisfying! Why I never thought to make it in the past 2 years since I've been doing this raw food thing is really quite astonishing considering how much I enjoy chocolate and apples! The recipe below will make between 3-6 covered apples depending on the size. Be ...
