Metabolism Boost: Coconut Oil and Peanut Butter Chips

March 12, 2014

If you know me, you know I love coconut oil frosting for breakfast. I haven’t been extremely consistent with it during pregnancy, but in normal life it is a staple in my diet (with coffee!). I love the smooth combo and the energy boost it gives me, all while making me feel full and satisfied [...]

Peanut Butter Cup Macaroons (Low Sugar, Gluten and Grain Free!)

August 3, 2013

Last week, right before my birthday weekend, it occurred to me how different it is to be single and living in a studio apartment compared to my old life (the opposite of that). My college friend, Jenn, was coming to visit from Florida and I was really excited—we had a good chuckle over our dorm-style-living [...]

PB Cup Bars

December 29, 2012

I’m dating this guy, Scott, who is super smart and attractive and nice. He’s athletic and funny too…and one of the craziest (in a good way) things about him is that he’s open-minded about my wacky food personality. I made him promise that if he eats something I make and he doesn’t really care for [...]

Chocolate Peanut Butter Pudding ….with a secret high protein ingredient!

April 25, 2012

Apparently, I’m still feeling the motivation from my training session yesterday—I ate extra well today, did two workouts, and went in the infrared sauna. I weighed-in too, and Joe was nice enough to take my “before” pics. He laughed at me for all of this, by the way, but he was supportive. I like how [...]

Peanut Butter Cheesecake Brownies

April 4, 2012

It’s one of those weeks when I thought I was going to have a lot of free time, and it is turning out not to be that way! I’m getting ready for a trip to SC for next week, and grading final projects for one class, along with all of my regular duties. I found [...]

Double Peanut Butter Chocolate Cups – So Healthy You Can Eat Them for Breakfast!

March 22, 2012

It’s almost Easter, and truthfully, I don’t crave or want regular old Easter candy at all. In fact, you couldn’t pay me to eat it—because I have so many things I can make myself that taste better (to me) and don’t have all the junk and sugar in them! Besides, I’m kind of craving cheese [...]

Dark Chocolate Coconut Peanut Butter Truffles – Grain/Gluten free, Dairy Free, No Sugar Added…

March 20, 2012

I’ve always been a fan of dense chewy freezable (but eatable right out of the freezer) macaroons and truffles…. In the past, I always made the standard raw food community blond and chocolate macs, but I just reviewed that old recipe and discovered that it has an entire cup of maple syrup in it. In [...]

Dark Chocolate “Oreo” Granola w/ Peanut Butter — Perfect for Greek Yogurt or Ice Cream Topping!

March 15, 2012

I’ve been trying to think of a way to make cereal that doesn’t involve any grains. Or much sugar. And really, this kind of stumped me because low-sugar and no-grain cereal doesn’t sound very good (can it even be called cereal?). Today I came up with a cross between granola and cereal…and it was chocolate [...]

Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies with Vanilla Cream (grain, gluten, and dairy free)

February 29, 2012

Yesterday, I decided to experiment with a new pb cookie recipe. I just had to decide what to use instead of flour… In fact, my first thought was to re-make the coconut flour mini chocolate cupcakes as peanut butter cupcakes. But I wanted a break from the coconut flour (how many coconut flour flatbread grilled [...]

Nutty Butter!

March 26, 2010

Did you know that peanuts contain a cancer-causing toxin called aflatoxin? ┬áIt’s a kind of mold, and it is found in all peanuts. It can be kind of upsetting to find out that things we’ve been doing for a long time (or things we grew up with) are not necessarily exactly what we thought they [...]
