Vegan Candy Corn

Ghosts. Goblins. And… candy corn? Think of candy corn as comic relief from Halloween. It’s cute, it’s yummy, and it’s not the slightest bit scary. That is, until you look at the ingredients. Gelatin, corn syrup, FDC Yellow 6 Lake, Red 40, Blue 1 Lake… Are you scared yet? I’ve always loved candy corn, more […]

Super Healthy Lentil Sloppy Joes

Lentil Sloppy Joes! Seeing as I’ve posted recipes for both Healthy Oreos and Healthy Butterfingers this week, I figured a non-dessert post was in order. After all, a person can’t live on chocolate, cookies, and candy, alone. We can come close… Anywhoos, so last night I made these: Thinking of sloppy joes brings me back […]

Healthy Oreos!

America’s favorite cookie: Except… these are homemade! And much healthier for you. Unlike Oreos, the cookies above are whole-grain, with no artificial flavors or high-fructose corn syrup.

Breakfast Cookie Dough

Cookie dough for breakfast. Finally, a reason to love Mondays. When I was little, I saw commercials for a cereal called “Cookie Crisps” that claimed to taste just like cookies for breakfast.

Complete with little chocolate chip eyeballs. I consumed many eyeballs in the process of making these peanut buttery treats. 😕 Spooky Rice Krispies Treats […]

Healthy Butterfingers!

Healthy Butterfingers! Candy bars that defy all logic. The homemade Butterfingers have that exact same toffee-like crunch of store-bought Butterfinger bars… yet these are whole-grain, high in iron, and completely free of high-fructose corn syrup. Okay, so that’s more than two words. Concision has never been my strong suit. We used to play the quiet game […]

Eggy Breakfast Bread

The texture is amazing. And hard to describe if you haven’t tried it… almost like a lighter, softer version of cornbread. Eggy cornbread that is perfect for dinner or breakfast. Eat it with your favorite pancake toppings. Or try the savory option with soup or my Sweet Potato Chili. The deliciously “eggy” texture comes from […]
