No-Bake Pumpkin Pie Balls

November 29th, 2018 | no comments

I love it when I try a nutritionally-upgraded recipe that tastes so good, I actually end up preferring it to the real thing.

I like pumpkin pie, but I can take or leave the crust…it’s really the filling I’m after. Thank you London from www.evolvingtable.com for this amazing recipe for No-Bake Pumpkin Pie Balls. I made a batch to take to Thanksgiving dinner because I knew at least one person would appreciate this upgraded version of pumpkin pie. 

The recipe couldn’t be easier. Made by combining almond and gluten-free oat flours with unsweetened pumpkin puree, pure maple syrup and spices, these little bites of heaven really hit the spot. And because they take a little dive in coconut sugar at the end, what you end up with is a sweet (but not too sweet) treat. 

Pure maple syrup and coconut sugar are both lower glycemic sweeteners, meaning they are a tad bit gentler on your blood sugar.

If the balls aren’t eaten right away, London recommends storing them uncovered in the very back of your refrigerator…otherwise you’ll end up with soggy balls. And that’s no fun for anyone! 🙂

PS: I know these totally look like deep fried sauerkraut balls, but trust me, they are the furthest thing! Ha, ha, ha…

No-Bake Cranberry Coconut Mood-Boosting Bites

November 14th, 2018 | no comments

Don’t let their size fool you; these little bites are rich in antioxidant, mood-boosting ingredients like maca root powder and cacao nibs. Other Earthfoods worth mentioning in this recipe: unsweetened coconut flakes and ground flaxseeds!

Held together with “peanut only” crunchy peanut butter (the oily/drippy kind works best) and a drizzle of pure maple syrup, No-Bake Cranberry Coconut Mood-Boosting Bites are the perfect little treat for when you want something sweet after dinner (which I always do!) and are craving a little nutrition too.

Having that usual cranky family member over for Thanksgiving dinner? Adaptogenic maca root powder is known for boosting both energy and mood! So consider whipping up a batch and offering one to Mr./Mrs. Grumpy Pants for dessert (a glass of wine wouldn’t hurt either…for both you and the grumpster! 🙂 ).

Maple Pecan Pumpkin Muffins (flourless)

September 19th, 2018 | no comments

If you liked my recipe for Banana Walnut Breakfast Muffins from last week, you’ll adore these muffins too! They sport the same fudge-like texture (thanks to the addition of beans) and are also gluten and dairy-free.

This recipe uses gluten-free quick oats vs. quinoa flakes, canned pumpkin (not pumpkin pie filling) vs. bananas and pecans vs. walnuts. In addition, it uses pumpkin spice, which is essentially a blend of cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger and cloves.

Maple Pecan Pumpkin Muffins pair nicely with a veggie-loaded omelet or as an afternoon treat with a cup of pumpkin spice coffee (just sprinkle a few dashes of pumpkin spice into your coffee grounds before brewing). What a nice change of pace from plain old regular coffee!

Another shout out to Katie (www.chocolatecoveredkatie.com), as this recipe is modified from her Pumpkin Blender Muffins.

Tiny Double Chocolate Birthday Cake + Pink Sprinkles

August 29th, 2018 | no comments

I love cake. Frosting? Even better! I felt inspired to make a tiny layered chocolate cake for my birthday and add some fun pink sprinkles too.

You know me- this isn’t some cake out of a box. Actually, it’s just as easy and, although it’s not a “healthy” cake, it’s quite an upgrade from your traditional cake loaded with crappy chemicals (that’s an industry term 🙂 ) and slathered with trans fat-laden frosting. 

The cake is made with almond flour and the frosting…well, I lied a little bit, the frosting is on the healthier side because it’s made with avocado, coconut oil and raw cacao powder, and sweetened with pure maple syrup. Shhh…don’t tell anyone. I swear they won’t know it used to be green. For the sprinkles, I just tossed about a half cup of unsweetened coconut flakes in the food processor with half of a strawberry and processed until the flakes turned pink. Then I let them sit out to dry for a bit. 

Happy birthday to me!

Instructions
Chocolate Cake
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease 2-four ounce ramekins with coconut oil.
  2. Place butter, honey, and chocolate chips in small microwave-safe bowl. Microwave for 45 seconds, then stir until smooth. Cool completely (you can place in refrigerator for 5-10 minutes to speed up the process).
  3. Add almond flour, egg, vanilla, and salt to cooled chocolate mixture and mix until combined. Spoon batter into prepared ramekins and place on a baking sheet. Bake for approximately 30 minutes or until toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean. Cool completely and gently remove by turning ramekin upside down on a clean plate.
Chocolate Frosting
  1. Process avocado in food processor until smooth. Add remaining ingredients and blend again until smooth, stopping once or twice to scrape the sides with a spatula.
  2. Frost the top of one cake with a thick layer of frosting. Place remaining cake on top and frost the top and sides of entire cake. You will have about half leftover, so just store remaining frosting in refrigerator and have a spoonful here or there for a sweet treat.
Pink Sprinkles
  1. Add coconut flakes and strawberry to a food processor and process until flakes are pink. Sprinkle all over top and sides of frosted cake!

No-Bake Peanut Butter Caramel Coconut Bars

June 6th, 2018 | no comments

Looking for a sweet and clean treat you can feel good about eating? No, I’m not talking about strawberries and blueberries…although you can feel good about eating those too!

Meet Peanut Butter Caramel Coconut Bars!

I found this recipe while surfing Pinterest and just knew I had to give it a try. Kudos to London Brazil (by the way…how cool is that name?!) from www.evolvingtable.com, for her Healthy No Bake Magic Bars– which I renamed Peanut Butter Caramel Coconut Bars because it just makes my mouth water to say it! These bars are gluten, dairy, and grain-free and loaded with coconut goodness. The “caramel” glaze is made by combining dates, coconut oil, pure maple syrup, water, and sea salt in a food processor. 

Please note: Because these bars have added sugar (in the form of pure maple syrup) and contain natural sugar from dates, they should be treated more like a dessert, not a meal or “nutrition bar”. By the way, if you’re looking to slow the absorption of sugar in your bloodstream, it’s best to eat sweet treats like this after a meal versus an empty stomach and do so at least two to three hours before bed.

For the Caramel Glaze:
  1. Place oil, dates, water, syrup and salt into the bowl of a food processor. Process for 2 minutes, stopping every 20-30 seconds to scrape the sides. You want the dates to be completely smooth and the glaze to have a caramel consistency.

Earthfood Energy Bars

February 5th, 2018 | no comments

Other than a select handful of bars (like the Elemental Superfood Seed Bars!), most of the so called “nutrition” bars on the market are nothing more than big fat sugar bombs disguised as health food. I find it to be much healthier (not to mention more cost-effective) to make my own. This recipe is as simple as it gets! With five Earthfood servings per bar, I found it most appropriate to call them Earthfood Energy Bars!

Point blank, these bars make me happy! Not because they are tasty and filling (which they ARE!)…but due to the addition of a secret ingredient used by the Inca warriors for endurance. The addition of maca powder places this bar in a league of its own. Maca–also know as Peruvian ginseng– is part of a group of plants called “adaptogens”, which means that it can help your body fight fatigue and cope with every day stress in a more peaceful way.

Earthfood Energy Bars are loaded with nuts and seeds…and then more nuts and seeds! Pure maple syrup is the sweetener…but don’t worry, it works out to be just a smidgen over one teaspoon per bar.

I just know you will fall in love with these bars. ♥

Earthfood Energy Bars
A raw, no-bake bar full of good healthy fat and protein! The extra special ingredient is maca powder. Maca, a root vegetable native to Peru, is considered an adaptogen, which means that it helps the body adapt to stress. If you can't find maca powder or would rather leave it out, just replace it with two extra tablespoons of ground flaxseed! Earthfood Energy Bars store well in the freezer...so go ahead and double the batch! 3 Earthfoods per serving: ♥♥♥
