Lower-Fat Snickerdoodle Dip

Snack versus Dessert Just like the lower-fat Chocolate Chip Dip, the original snickerdoodle dip is much yummier. But this is still a tasty snack—just maybe not as decadent and dessert-like. Lower-fat recipe:  1 1/2 cups chickpeas or white beans (1 can, drained and rinsed) (250g) 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce 2 tsp vanilla extract 1/8 tsp […]

Healthy Cookie Dough Dip

EDIT: If you received an email from Pinterest saying I didn’t want you to pin my recipes, this is NOT true! I am so sorry for this and have no idea why they would send such messages out! Please accept my apologies… I’m so honored when people pin things from my site or follow my Chocolate […]

Calling all Taste-Testers!

Too many desserts! I know what you’re thinking: No such thing as too many desserts! Well, there is if you’re trying to organize a page of Chocolate-Covered Recipes. I have so many recipes, and they fit into so many different categories, that I’m at a loss in terms of how to best organize them. If […]

Snickerdoodle Blondies

I have the best job. Not everyone’s job description includes making snickerdoodle blondies.  But yesterday morning, I was forced to do just that. When I threw the idea out on Twitter, there was such an excited response that I just couldn’t let everyone down. And so, still in my pjs, I set about making a gigantic […]

Healthy Chocolate Chip Chickpea Blondies {NO flour!}

So a blonde walks into a bar. Or in this case, the blonde is the bar! I’d tell you these Chocolate Chip Chickpea Blondies are healthy. But then, if you try them, you will think I am a liar and never believe another word I say. If you taste the chickpea blondies, you won’t believe they’re healthy! […]

Special Diet Recipes

Allergy Free! Many readers have specific dietary concerns (such as allergies), and therefore I’m now tagging my recipe posts according to the dietary requirements they meet and the allergens they do not contain. If a recipe is tagged under one of the following, it means there is an option for the recipe to fit into that particular category: […]

High Protein Mushroom Stroganoff

High-protein mushroom stroganoff… It’s gluten-free as well, and there’s a soy-free option. One thing of which the dish isn’t free, however, is taste! You’d think it was top-secret recipe, for how long I’ve waited to post it. This mushroom stroganoff is dedicated to my friend, Sunne. She might never see it, though, since she probably […]

“Mexican Hat Dance” Tortilla Soup

¡Hola chispas de chocolate! Do you like Mexican Food? As a little girl, I hated it! Even after we moved to Texas, the home of Tex-Mex cuisine, I still loathed tacos, fajitas, and guacamole. Don’t get me started on jalapeños. And I don’t think I’d eaten an enchilada in my entire life! However, tastes change, and […]

Bread-free Vegan Stuffing

My Thanksgiving main dish was amazing! The mashed lentils acted almost like a thick gravy over the flavorful veggies.   Really, this is more like pot pie. But I already have a Vegan Pot Pie Filling. So for the above recipe title, I needed to get creative. Got creative with the actual recipe as well. […]

Does Harry Potter like Sweet Potatoes?

Are you excited about the new Harry Potter movie? I am! A few of my friends and I started an HP-watching marathon, where we’ve been getting together once or twice a week to watch the first six movies in preparation for the seventh (which comes out on November 19th). Last night I invited them over […]

Healthy Halloween

Dear litttle chocolate chips, Halloween is a scary time. And when I say scary, I’m not talking ghosts and goblins. With an overabundance of sugary sweets, Dracula isn’t the only fearsome foe for those trying to stick to a healthy diet. Below, some healthy Halloween recipes. So you can leave the scaring to the creepy crawlies! […]


People ask me all the time: Are you ever tempted to eat non-vegan food?     For the first month after I became a vegetarian, meat cravings definitely hit! In fact, I can remember one specific time where I had my nose right up to a hamburger, thinking “Maybe I should just give in and […]

A recipe, but NOT for Peanut Butter

Fact: I love Butter. Huh? How exactly is that vegan, Miss Katie? No wait! I’m talking about the likes of Hot Chocolate Butter, not the dairy stuff. Then, there’s peanut butter, cashew butter, banana butter, almond butter, and—of course—coconut butter. Don’t forget cacao butter, which is not only an ingredient in many chocolate confections, it’s […]

Redefining Fast Food

Lately, I’m needing to come up with even quicker meals. Katie, your recipes are already quick and easy. How much simpler can they get? What about a meal in 5 minutes? Sorry to Rachael Ray, but 30 minutes to dinner sounds like a long time to me. Sometimes, 5 minutes is all you’ve got! The […]

Soy-Free Vegan Yogurt

No, I don’t eschew all soy. I believe that all most foods in moderation are perfectly fine. But that’s exactly the point: moderation. The problem with soy is that these days it’s in everything, from beverages to vitamins to Fritos! And unlike the Japanese, who have been reaping the health benefits of soy foods for […]

High-Protein Spaghetti??

I love little health-food stores. You can find things you’ve never seen before at the big ole Whole Foods. Case in point: spaghetti made entirely from black beans! Strange pastas just seem to find me; I’ve even seen chocolate pasta before. And you might recall my “mushroom spaghetti” post. Seeing how much I love pasta, […]
