Cookies for Breakfast?

When I think of healthy breakfast I think of smoothies, healthy muffins, sprouted toast with coconut oil and natural nut butter, yogurt with healthy granola, cookies…wait, cookies? Yup!

Almond Chocolate Haystacks

In my opinion there’s nothing better than enjoying a healthy, guilt-free dessert. I whipped up these healthy cookies yesterday afternoon so I would have a batch of healthy cookies going into the week.

Healthy Brownie Recipe

You may be noticing a trend here. I scout out healthy versions of my favourite treats: cookies, muffins and now brownies. I rarely eat brownies because they pack a big calorie punch and are high in fat & refined sugar. The problem is; I really like brownies. They are so good when warmed up with some frozen […]
