January and February are going to be recipe heavy, with new healthy dessert recipe posts coming your way much more frequently. Basically, now that I know what healthy desserts recipes are going in the cookbook, all of the others I’d been saving can be posted on the blog. In January, the focus will be on healthy meal ideas—breakfast recipes, as well as maybe some lunch and dinner ideas. Then February begins chocolate craziness. It all starts with my next healthy dessert post. Hope you are ready!

    Haha, I can seriously remember the total excitement I had when seeing each and every one of those recipes when you first posted them. And I’m sooo excited to see all of the new recipes that you’re going to post!

    The copycat peanut butter eggs are my all-time favorite!!! I also liked the nutella a lot! Mostly due to my common thoughts and feelings of oh-that-looks-so-good-I’ll-have-to-try-that-sometime followed by oops-I-never-actually-got-around-to-making-all-of-those, those are the only two I tried from this post. But I give both recipes two thumbs up 🙂

  3. Kathy says

    I am sooooo excited to see what you have coming. Especially the healthy meal ideas. I’m always at a loss as to what to make, so this will be really helpful!!! Love your site!

  4. Alexandra Coopey says

    I’ve made nearly all of those recipes, and wouldn’t be surprised if half of the 2 million cookie dough dip views were from me! I’m very much looking forward to your new recipes, book and web design. Happy 2013 🙂

  5. Beth Aldrich says

    HI Katie,
    I’m loving your blog so much! Can we pre-order your book somewhere? I’ve loved every one of your recipes that I’ve made and look forward to the delicious fun in 2013! Blessings!

  6. Linda Wilson says

    Just keep them coming Katie – your deliciously healthy sweet treats hit the spot and take the guilt away from eating dessert. Love, love, love the blog – THANK YOU!

    Hi katie,

    I’m a big fan of you and I’ve tried almost every recipes that you posted!

    I really love them all! Thanks a lot for your lovely healthy recipes at all times.

    Do you know when the book will be ready? I just can’t wait for it because I know how awesome it’s gonna be!

    I would like to pre-order if I could!!

  8. Joanne @ A Nicer Choice says

    I love the single serving chocolate mocha cake. It’s one of my staples when I need a chocolate fix 🙂

    I can’t wait for the cookbook. It sounds like you’ve got an exciting year ahead of you!

  9. Laura says

    mmm I love all these recipes, I’m very excited to be leaving for Africa today, but also so sad I will be without my kitchen and my new VItamix for three months! Keep up the posts and I will have lots to look forward to when I get back 🙂

  10. Rossi says

    I must say the healthy Nutella was fabulous. As one of many Nutella addicts out there, it was wonderful to see a healthier version of my favorite thing in the world 🙂

  11. Jamie H says

    I am such a blog stalker of yours. I look at/read (via email) almost all of your posts but I RARELY comment (so sorry!). This post however deserves a comment because I’m going to try these!!

  12. Shay says

    Love love love all those recipes!!! I am going to dash downstairs and make the nutella even though i just ate your chocolate oatmeal for snack (i am not going to sleep today!!!:))!!
    Also, when is your cookbook coming out?
    I am going to be waiting in line at Barnes and Nobles or wherever to get it 🙂

  13. Anonymous says

    Really looking forward to the new recipes! You are amazing, Katie, and such an inspiration. Even as someone who isn’t watching her weight (I’m still “underweight” at 20) I enjoy making my desserts healthier – or at least less bad – because I don’t see the point in clogging yourself full of junk when it makes you sick and lethargic. Thank you!

  14. Lisa @bitesforbabies says

    I’ve tried two of these recipes-the coconut crack bars and the fudge bites…and they were both delicious!!

  15. renee says

    This morning I made oatmeal-raisin fudge bites with my mother’s Vita-mix. They were sooo blissfully good.
    Dang, am I excited for a new blog design, the cookbook, the upcoming recipes, basically everything! omigoshomigoshomigosh anticipation is killing me.
    Will your cookbook be selling outside of the US? I sure hope so, cuz I reside on this ‘lil island near China called Taiwan. 😛

  16. Jess says

    Your post reminded me just how much I love your peanut butter breakfast pudding. I just finished a big bowl of it. Your Betterfingers bars are my favorite, though. Or maybe your big fat coconut breakfast cake, or your peanut butter bread. It’s all so good! Thank you for so many delicious recipes, Katie. I am so excited for the cookbook!

  17. Khaleef @ Fat Guy, Skinny Wallet says

    Oh wow…you have me drooling at work! lol

    I’m pinning this right now and trying many of these in 2013. Thanks 🙂

  18. Veronica says

    I’m so happy i found your website! Do you know how hard it is to find SINGLE SERVING healthy DESSERTS?! yeah….i guess u probably do since you chose to create the recipes for them haha, love all your dessert recipes and can’t wait to make them!! Thnks!

  19. Rusty says

    Hi There:

    I want to make the frosting shots so bad! I’ve tried three times and after putting the can in the refrigerator and opening them, I found nothing solid in the can. Just liquid. I bought the Thai kitchen in the red can, just like your picture showed. What in the world can I do to correct the situation.

    What can I make with the liquid?

    Thank you so much for helping me out.

      As she says in the post, if you want a guarantee, you should buy coconut cream.

      But you can make delicious smoothies with the thinner coconut milk or use it in any of Katie’s recipes that call for “milk of choice.”
