Basic Chocolate Oatmeal

Everyone should know how to make basic chocolate oatmeal. Why? Because it’s chocolate. That’s why. And yes, I just started a pseudo sentence with because. I’m out of college, and nobody can stop me. Besides, if a picture of chocolate oatmeal is staring you in the face and all you can think about is grammar rules, […]

Rainbow Sprinkles… homemade!

Somewhere over the rainbow… Above, rainbow homemade sprinkles on my Healthy Vanilla Ice Cream. I was surprised at how easy—and fun—it is to make healthy sprinkles from scratch, with none of the artificial ingredients, dyes, or corn syrup. Today’s recipe is the creation of Hannah Kaminsky, a girl almost too good to be true. A gifted […]

Healthy Ketchup!

Here are THREE good reasons you should try homemade healthy ketchup: No high-fructose corn syrup, and you get to control how much–if any–sugar goes in. Homemade really does taste so much better than bottled ketchup. With just 4 basic ingredients, this healthy ketchup couldn’t be easier to make! Once you try homemade ketchup, you’ll never want to […]

Strawberry Smoothie Popsicles

Fill in the blank: Bronze, silver, and __________ Green. Green? Yes, green. If you hope to win Olympic gold, you’d better start by eating green. And red and orange and yellow. In other words, just eat one of these popsicles. Each little pop supplies over 50% of the RDA for Vitamin C and gives you […]

Oatmeal Cookie Ice Cream

It’s the comfort food of ice cream – Like a warm oatmeal cookie, straight out of the oven, splashed with milk and dusted with cinnamon sweetness. Imagine your favorite cookie churned into sweet, creamy ice cream and scooped high onto a cone. Your tastebuds say “oatmeal cookie,” but your eyes will know better. Oatmeal Cookie Ice […]

Cookie Dough Popsicles

I can’t explain it. These are popsicles that taste like cookie dough. Obviously the texture is different. But the taste? Spot on cookie dough! Cookie Dough Popsicles (gluten-free) Adapted from Mint Chocolate Fudge Pops. 2/3 cup milk or yogurt of choice (160g) 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract 1/16 tsp salt 2 tbsp coconut sugar or brown […]

Homemade Chocolate Soft Serve

Just 4 simple ingredients to make this: Swirly chocolate soft-serve. Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve probably seen the idea of whipping frozen banana in a vitamix or food processor until it resembles the exact texture of soft-serve ice cream. (If you add a fat source, like peanut butter, it tastes pretty similar to […]

Cake Batter Dip

The sprinkles made me do it. Sprinkles can be very convincing. Yesterday, one of my friends threw an impromptu party, and we were all supposed to bring a dish to share. Since a lot of people came straight from work, there ended up being an overwhelming number of packaged hummus containers, spinach dips, and pre-cut veggie trays. […]

No-Bake Mocha Chocolate Chip Cookies

These no bake cookies will make you forget what time it is, what day it is, and basically everything else that was once important in your life. While eating these cookies, you will think about one thing, and one thing only: These cookies. If you had to choose… What’s your favorite type of cookie? My favorite […]

Healthy Cookie Dough Ice Cream

Healthy cookie dough ice cream? That means you can eat twice as much, right? Right???!!! Is there anyone in this world who doesn’t love cookie dough ice cream? Melty vanilla ice cream with bite-sized pieces of soft, unbaked cookie dough packed into each creamy scoop. What’s not to love?! At least, that’s what I was thinking yesterday […]

Dark Chocolate Crunch Bars

If chocolate were a food group… We could eat brownies for breakfast, cookies for lunch, hot fudge sundaes for dinner. And dark chocolate crunch bars all day long. Yes, that would be a nice life. Nestlé doesn’t currently offer a darker variety of their popular Crunch bars, which means they are missing out. This dark-chocolate […]

Happy Fourth Of July Cupcakes!

These patriotic little Fourth Of July cupcakes are hiding a surprise inside… They are secretly stuffed with blueberries and Vegan Cool Whip! One morning last week, my roommate came downstairs, gave me a funny look, and said, “Katie, why are you making patriotic cupcakes in June?” Sometimes, in order to get holiday recipe posts written and […]

Lightened Up Healthy Corn Casserole

I am definitely making this healthy corn casserole for the Fourth of July: It’s like traditional corn casserole, but without the cream, lard, and day’s-worth of saturated fat. Many years ago, at a 4th of July barbecue, a neighbor brought a dish called “Aunt Linda’s Corn Casserole,” and everyone went crazy for it. As it turned […]

Chocolate Cake… with a crazy ingredient!

This cauliflower chocolate cake might be the most “out there” recipe I’ve ever posted. Originally, I was hoping to save the recipe for The Chocolate-Covered Katie Cookbook. But I can’t keep it to myself. This chocolate cake is too good to not share! And no, the secret ingredient is not beans. My boyfriend has proclaimed […]

Chocolate Nutella Milk

Liquid Nutella. Who wouldn’t want to drink a thick glass of Nutella? Drink it, eat it, bathe in it… okay, maybe not the last one. Then again, perhaps a Nutella bath could be fun. I wonder if they sell such a thing as Nutella bubble bath. They should. I’d buy it. In bulk. Chocolate Nutella […]
