Mushroom and Cashew Alfredo Pasta (DF and GF)

Mushroom and light cream truffle pasta has ma’ heart. This one is completely dairy-free and get’s that cheesy light truffle cream sauce taste from none other than… C-A-S-H-E-W-S. Yep, you read that right; (insert bold letters and conspicuous spacing :P). The same good ol’ raw cashews I make vegan cheesecake from. The same handful of raw cashews that make my smoothies denser and creamier. The same cashews that I use for my cashew cream cheese spread. Starting to make sense? Cashews are the best source of cheesy goodness, aside from cheese itself. You will love!

Oat Flour Chocolate Chip Pancakes

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: I am a pancake girl through and through. Not trying to put waffles down or anything people; but pancakes bring me right back to the happiest spot of my childhood. That hazy memory of a lazy Sunday, mom’s hot chocolate, and thick + spongy pancakes for breakfast in my parents terrace overlooking the garden is the stuff weekend dreams are made of.

REAL Hot Chocolate

Picture warm and frothy hot chocolate made without any preservatives, corn syrup, white sugar or processed cocoa. Instead of regular milk; this recipe calls for oat milk, almond milk, or cashew milk. In lieu of white sugar, this recipe calls for pure maple or 1-2 soaked medjool dates, pitted. You blend it all up, then you warm it all up. C’est tout! And if you use pure maple syrup- you don’t need to blend anything. Just warm up over the stove using a whisker to mix well.

Holiday Thumbprint Cookies

Who doesn’t enjoy jammy cookies? Like, seriously. Soft and slightly chewy- they melt-in-your-mouth and make you quickly engulf the edges so you can get to the joyous jam-filled middle. And here’s the best part; the jam-filled middle is highly customizable; I filled mine sticky and sweet bumbleberry jam- AKA just a fancy name for a combination of strawberries, blueberries and raspberries. But it’s oh so good!

Flourless Chocolate Pumpkin Muffins

With muffins, you get what you put in. These are healthy, wholesome- but don’t taste it one bit. That’s the best kind of baked good situation. That’s exactly the kind of baked good situation you want to be in. They’re made with all good things like; certified gluten-free oats, organic pumpkin puree, dairy free chocolate chips, pasture raised eggs etc. But hey, the finished product tastes both; decadent and enjoyable. You want a second one the moment you take a bite off the first.
