    Chocolate Chunk Cashew Butter Blondies (Vegan, GF)

    Follow my blog with Bloglovin Oh hi, friends! I’m so excited to share my favourite blondie recipe with you just in time for the holidays! This dessert only takes 20 minutes to whip up and is so intensely craveable, you’ll be making it all year round! What the heck is a blondie, you may ask? Think brownie, minus the chocolate batter. I like to think of them as blonde brownies. What the batter lacks in cocoa, it makes up for in the chocolate chunks that adorn every square inch of this dessert! They’re sweet (but not tooth-achingly so), rich (but not over the top), and satisfying. Sweetened with coconut sugarand…

    Pan-Fried Maple-Tamari-Sriracha Tofu

    This tofu is guaranteed to turn any tofu hater into a lover! Nobody can resist the sweet, salty, and mildly spicy flavour of this dish. It is also incredibly versatile, and works well as a filling in wraps, a topping for bowls, and on its own as a tasty, protein-rich snack!

    Chocolate Cake Batter Smoothie

    Hey, it’s almost Friday! Let’s celebrate the end of the week in style, shall we? It appears as though I am on both a smoothie kick and a chocolate kick, and I cannot be stopped. Can you blame me? With summer in full swing and the humidity showing no signs of abating in these parts, it was only a matter of time before I combined the two.

    Mystic Bowls with Beet Almond Hummus and Cashew Carrot Harissa Sauce

    One of the most delicious restaurant meals that I have ever eaten was the Mystic Bowl at Buddha-Full in North Vancouver. (I wrote about this in my previousΒ post.)Β I knew that I would need to re-create the recipe as soon as I returned home to Ottawa so as not to suffer from withdrawal. It was that good. So what, you ask, is so special about the Mystic Bowl? Is it the earthy beet almond hummus? The slightly spicy, slightly sweet cashew carrot harissa sauce? The crunchy cabbage slaw or the fragrant brown rice? Or is it the synergy of all those flavours and textures, arranged in a bowl, that is a…

    Chocolate Banana Protein Pancakes

    Hello and welcome to my blog!! I have been reading different food/health/wellness blogs for years now and figured that I’d give it a try myself. It’s going to be a work in progress for the next several months but I don’t think there is ever a moment where one is 100 percent ready to try something new. I’m jumping in and learning as I go. Any feedback is welcome! Today’s recipe is one that, if you are anything like me, you will find yourself making over and over again! I wanted my first recipe to be a memorable one, and I think that these fit the bill quite well. Chocolate…
