Pumpkin Cookie Dough Dip

Just try to keep your spoon out of this: Oh forget it. Resistance is futile. I made this pumpkin cookie dough dip for a Halloween party on Saturday. But it almost didn’t get there. My roommate and I had a difficult time taking the dip out of the food processor… we kept stealing more and more […]

Giant Chocolate-Chip Cookie Cake

A giant chocolate-chip cookie. Can you think of anything better? Right now, I can’t. But give me a second… Nope. Still cant. Presenting a healthier version of the famous Great American Cookie Cake. This one is whole-grain, gluten-free, and high in fiber. But don’t let those adjectives scare you away; the recipe has the stamp […]

Healthy snacks you can take on-the-go

Question for everyone: Do you have any ideas for portable healthy snacks? I’ve been trying to post more lunchbox-friendly recipes lately, because kids are going back to school and therefore will have no use for messy recipes like Dark Chocolate Brownie Batter Dip. A lot of people have been asking me for good portable snack recommendations. I […]

Starbucks Frappuccino Fudgsicles!

Hi chocolate-covered espresso beans! Ick, I tried a chocolate-covered espresso bean once. It was not good. Almost broke my tooth! And I hate how coffee beans—especially flavored ones—don’t taste as yummy as they smell. Chocolate-raspberry coffee? Snickerdoodle coffee? They sound good in theory… In reality, I’d much rather have Snickerdoodle Pancakes. Maybe with one of […]

Gooey PB&J Blondies

Like a peanut butter and jelly sandwich In blondie form. Recently, a friend asked if I’d make my famous Chocolate-Chip Blondies. When she wanted to know her daughter’s choice of cake flavors for her birthday party, the little girl answered, “No cake. Chocolate-Covered Katie blondies!” I have never felt so honored. I talked with the […]

Dark Chocolate Brownie Batter Dip

First came cookie dough dip. And then, of course, there was also Snickerdoodle Cookie Dough Dip. Someday soon, you might see peanut butter and jelly dip, red velvet dip, and oatmeal-raisin dip. But today, things are taking a turn for the worse better chocolate. Say hello to brownie batter dip. A new addition to my Healthy Gluten-Free […]

Lower-Calorie Brownie Batter Dip

Sugar Free Notes: The original recipe calls for 2/3 cup sweetener. You can easily get away with less, especially if you’re used to not-so-sweet desserts. Or, for a completely sugar-free dip, omit sugar completely and instead use 4 1/2 nunaturals stevia packets and 1/2 a super-ripe banana (or more stevia and no banana… or more […]

Harry Potter theme party!!

I *heart* theme parties Once (pre-vegan), I threw a Jungle-themed ice cream party, complete with monkey tails (pretzels), elephant droppings (Hershey’s kisses), baby elephant droppings (chocolate chips), and even zebra dandruff (shredded coconut). In retrospect, these might not have been the most-appetizing choices for ice cream topping names… but the point is that I go […]

Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream

It is so hot here! Can someone please invent the Ice Cream Diet? Where you eat ice cream for breakfast, lunch, and dinner? A few of you told me there already is an ice cream diet. Why am I surprised? After all, there’s a grapefruit diet, a cabbage soup diet, even a No White Foods […]
