Chocolate Chip Cream Cheese Dip

I’ve finally made a new “about me” page! Click here: About Chocolate-Covered Katie Did you know.. Did you know that healthy food can be naughty? Try this dip and you will never believe it isn’t full of heavy cream and sugar! It’s all thanks to a comment from a reader. She asked if I could healthify: this non-vegan recipe. I’d […]

Pumpkin Pie Parfait

Can you say that three times fast? Because I was out so late on New Year’s Eve, I opted to take a rest day from running the next morning and sleep in. Of course, “sleeping in” for me means sleeping til 7:30, because my body naturally wakes up with the sun. So I had a […]

Raw Coconut Cream Pie

With a Christmas or St. Patrick’s Day color twist! Two summers ago, I visited a 100% raw restaurant, Quintessence, in New York City. Ever since that visit, I’ve been dreaming of their raw coconut cream pie. Sadly, I do not live anywhere near Quintessence, and therefore don’t have easy access to the pie. However, I […]

Coconut Butter Melties

After last night, who’s candy-d out? While out this a.m. I must’ve seen a million candy wrappers. One of the many benefits of my Vegan Peanut Butter Cups: No wrappers! Even if you are sick of candy, you might want to find room in your tummy to make the following coconut melties. I’m obsessed with […]

Smashing Chickpeas

Smashing Chickpeas (serves 1-2) This recipe is one of my go-to ideas for when I don’t have much time to cook. 1 cup canned chickpeas a little under 1 cup spaghetti sauce or pizza sauce (about 200g) salt, if desied Combine and smash with a fork. Looks weird, tastes terrific!

Peanut Butter Banana Soft Serve

So remember when I said all I wanted to do in this hot weather was sit around eating salads and ice cream? Forget the part about the salad. And double up on the ice cream to make up for it. In this particular peanut butter and banana soft serve, the banana gives the recipe its […]

Healthy Chocolate Sauce

Healthy Chocolate Sauce!                   About a year ago, I fell in love with Artisana Cacao Bliss. However, my wallet was not so smitten: $11 for an 8-oz jar? In the interest of saving money, I vowed to attempt making my own Cacao Bliss… it turned out even […]

Make your own Liquid Crack

(Oh boy will I probably regret this title when I see the resulting Google searches it may get.). A few years ago, I ventured into a little, unknown cafe in NYC called Bonobos. Although the cafe was quaint, it was also very quiet.  My mom and I were the only ones in the joint for […]

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Babies

Nursery Shenanigans One fateful night, I laid my Cashew Cookie Truffles in their playpen next to the dark chocolate bars.  But something happened while I slept… come morning, the bouncing babies were gone! I didn’t have to look far to find them, though: Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Babies As children, how many of you ate […]

Make. These. Now.

They’re raw. They’re sinful sinless. They’re delicious… and totally addictive. Don’t say I didn’t warn you. I love recreating dessert recipes. But that’s no secret if you’ve read my page: About Chocolate-Covered Katie A few weeks ago, after discovering they’re discontinuing one of my favorite energy bars (Clif Nectar) , I set out to try and recreate said […]

Better than Peanut Butter?

Yes, the following is better than peanut butter. I know, you’re all rolling your eyes right now, saying, “How can anything (besides chocolate) be better than peanut butter?” Hear me out; this spread has the one-up on regular pb because it: is easier to spread is lower in calories (more about this at the end of […]

Call it cheesecake dip, pudding, fondue, or even vegan cream cheese frosting… whatever you want to call it, this concoction tastes awesome!  And with only four ingredients, it couldn’t be easier to make.

The Melted Banana Trick

Step away from the sugar! One of my favorite ways to sweeten oatmeal is naturally, by melting in a banana. The banana gets all caramelized, and the oatmeal tastes amazing! The Melted Banana Trick Step 1: Cook up the oatmeal or another grain as you normally would. Step 2: In a separate bowl, melt however much […]
