Whole Wheat Chocolate Strawberry Crepes

Crepes have always been a favorite dish of mine whether it was eaten savory or sweet. Although I enjoy both, I think I’d prefer the sweet to the savory (surprise, surprise), so today I have brought to you my favorite whole wheat chocolate strawberry crepes!IMG_1107

Whenever I would go out to have a crepe, chocolate strawberry was always my go to. I just can’t resist chocolate strawberry anything, so I decided to try it out for myself and see how it turned out.

Valentine’s Day is here and you can’t spend the day without making these wonderfully chocolatey lava cakes.

Molten lava cakes have been a favorite dessert of mine ever since I was little. I clearly remember the first time I ate one; I was on vacation in Whistler (a beautiful town in British Colombia), with my family and the four of us had to share one little lava cake. I remember the hot chocolate oozing out with vanilla ice cream melting into the warm cake, my nine year old self wondering how in the world did they get the center of the cake all melty and yummy.

Gingersnaps (Refined Sugar + Gluten Free!)

I feel like fall has officially started. We finally have weather colder than 85 degrees here in NorCal which means I have an excuse to make as many fall like recipes as I want.  I absolutely LOVE fall baking especially if I’m making gingersnaps.

One bite out of these gingersnaps and you’ll taste an explosion of spices and that prominent sweet ginger. It’s basically the definition of fall in your mouth.

Did I mention that they’re gluten free? And refined sugar free? And dairy free? Yup. The best part is that you wouldn’t even know what was missing if you ate one.

Maple Butter Cinnamon Rolls (Refined Sugar Free)

Fall is here which means my kitchen smells like cinnamon 24/7. Why? Well apart from my cinnamon crumb cakes and gingersnaps, my favorite cinnamon rolls are being made! I love love love cinnamon rolls (as I’ve said in numerous blog posts) and last weekend I made them again (no surprise there) but a bit differently.

Chocolate Fudge Popsicles (refined sugar free!)

It’s summer, and here in California it can get pretty hot. In fact, some days are even too hot to use the oven. But that’s okay, cause I have a no bake summer treat that’s frozen, refined sugar free, and chocolatey! Did I mention the chocolatey part? It’s basically everything you could want in a popsicle.

Father’s Day Strawberry & Coconut Whipped Cream Tart

Last weekend happened to be Father’s Day, so I had to of course make something for my wonderful dad.

As some of you know, my dad is gluten free, sugar free, and mostly vegan. Given these circumstances, coming up with something that he would really enjoy was a bit challenging. While searching for ideas on Pinterest, I came across a picture of a beautiful strawberry tart that came from a wonderful blogger- What Jessica Baked Next. This inspired me to make a tart like dessert.

2 Tier Smiley Face Themed Cake {Vegan}

It’s been too long since I’ve posted a decorated cake, so here’s a cake I recently made for a boy’s 1st birthday.  The cake was a two tier vegan cake with a vegan buttercream frosting.

I had a lot of fun making this cake. There were so many colors I could’ve used, but I settled on yellow, orange, blue, red, and a nice mint green. The boy’s mom wanted smiley faces incorporated into the cake without using too much yellow, so I settled on using mint green fondant as the base color for the cakes.

Whole Wheat Chocolate Coffee Muffins

I’m back with another breakfast recipe. Of course this can also be a great afternoon snack or even a great midnight snack for that matter (don’t worry, I won’t judge).

Also did I mention you won’t be as guilty eating these? Yup, there is absolutely no white flour. I used sprouted whole wheat flour instead.
