Healthy Apple Crumble Recipe

Healthy Apple Crumble! A little-known fact about me: I love apple crumble so much that I sometimes choose it over chocolate. I’ve been known to choose it over dinner, too. It all started during my freshman year of high school, one night before the prom, when my group of friends ate at a place called at […]

Pumpkin Frosting Shots

I’m sure you saw it coming. It’s pumpkin “whipped cream” frosting! Ridiculously delicious on cupcakes. Ridiculously delicious on pumpkin pie. And it also happens to be seriously crazily ridiculously delicious eaten straight off the spoon. Shown above, on top of these: Healthy Chocolate Cupcakes. The only thing better than a chocolate cupcake topped with homemade […]

Crock Pot Oatmeal

Lately, my favorite breakfast is a giant bowl of creamy crock pot oatmeal, hot from the slow cooker. It brings back memories of visiting my grandparents’ house as a young girl. Grandpa believed steel-cut oats were the healthiest food you could eat, and he’d get up every morning at 5 AM to make sure that […]

Crustless Pumpkin Pie

Oh yes, crustless pumpkin pie! This crustless pumpkin pie recipe is crazy. You could actually eat the entire 8 servings of pie and still consume less fat and fewer calories than if you ate just one slice of many traditional pies!!! Not that I’d recommend eating an entire pie in one serving… But this crustless […]

How to make your own White Chocolate Chips

White chocolate is not really chocolate. Just like tomatoes aren’t really vegetables. Lentils aren’t really beans. Koalas aren’t really bears… Life’s confusing, isn’t it? Sometimes people are surprised to find not a single white chocolate recipe on this entire chocolate-covered blog. White chocolate has just never been my favorite thing… because I want it to taste […]

It’s perfect for feeding a crowd, or for enjoying on a quiet and chilly autumn morning. Simply assemble the night before, and pop it into the oven in the morning for a delicious and comforting […]

Please stop whatever you’re doing and read this post.

Sorry for the gimmick-y title. However, there is nothing gimmicky about what’s going on in the northeastern United States and parts of the Caribbean right now. Thousands of people have lost everything—their homes, their livelihoods, members of their family… Today’s post is a reminder that there are more important things in life than chocolate. This […]

What I did for Halloween

I sometimes forget I’m no longer in college. Gone are the days my body will happily accept 2 hours of sleep. But you can always tell how good (or bad) a party is by how late everyone stays. I’ve been at parties that start at 7, where nobody is left by 10 PM. However, last […]

Are you stuck inside today? Know what you can do when you’re stuck inside all day? Make these homemade healthy Mounds bars. And then eat them all up. Quickly… before someone else does! Sweet coconut filling, surrounded by a rich chocolate shell. With healthy fats and fiber. One bite, and you will never miss the […]

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. They are also much lower in sugar than store-bought Oreos. And just in case you were wondering… Yes, they really do taste like Oreos. Maybe better. Homemade always tastes […]

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. Obviously my 7-year-old self begged and begged until my mom finally relented and bought it, cautioning me the entire time it wouldn’t really […]

Spooky Peanut Butter Rice Krispy Treats

I met someone on Saturday… Then I ate him. Poor guy. Rice Krispies Treat Ghosts! Sweet, sticky, salty, and scary. Well, maybe not so much scary. But they are scary delicious! 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 […]
