Rudolph Nutella Donuts & Other Healthy Holiday Desserts

Happy Christmas Eve Eve! Here it is, a compilation of all my holiday desserts! I hope you find some inspiration for last-minute Christmas treats or even last-minute gifts?! Suggestion: fill a beautiful box with a loaf of pumpkin bread, truffles and cut-out cookies, then add a gift card for your friend/relative’s favorite restaurant! You could even add a copy of your favorite cookbook in there. It’s the ultimate foodie gift.  Now enjoy these Christmas desserts, plus a new recipe at the end. 🙂 Easy Holiday Truffles I posted these truffles earlier this week and they’re the perfect addition to your holiday feast! They’re probably the healthiest and easiest truffles you’ll ever find. They’re made from only 3 ingredients, then rolled in beet powder, coconut…

Easy Holiday Truffles

I hope these festive Easy Holiday Truffles make your Monday a little better.  It’s the last Monday before Christmas (!!) and I’m sharing yet another holiday dessert. I’m getting a little carried away with all the Christmas treats. For a while I didn’t think it was going to be possible to continue sharing one recipe every week on this blog… In the last two weeks I’ve been sharing two and this week I’m sharing three! I’m not sure how I’ll be able to do it. Especially since this week is my last week of internship before Christmas vacation and I have a big evaluation to finish for tomorrow. That’s what I did all weekend. I did take Saturday night off…

Creamy Sugar-Free Hot Chocolate

A sugar-free hot chocolate that’s better than any sugar-filled hot chocolate? YES PLEASE.  Enter this creamy sugar-free hot chocolate… Or as I like to call it: Gingerbread men hot tub. You can’t tell me that’s not what it looks like? 😉  Just look at that frothy hot chocolate… I’m envying that cookie. It’s -30ºC here today and the wind is strong, so a hot tub would be nice. Or a vacation on a tropical island.  I don’t know what’s wrong with me, but I’ve been feeling extremely drained in the last month. I come home from work exhausted and I go to bed at 9 pm at the latest. Then I wake up at 6 am…

Dark Chocolate Mint Truffles

Happy Friday! Yes, I’m sharing a second recipe this week! I honestly don’t know how I managed to do so, but I’m happy to be sharing these healthy dark chocolate mint truffles with you today. 🙂  My goal is to share two recipes every week until Christmas, so lets see how that goes! Every minute of free time I have from my internship is spent either on this blog or on my workouts. Okay my workouts aren’t that long lately, but they still feel like a chore, which isn’t usually the case. It’s been like this since I started my internship and I don’t know how I’m able to do it. I admit that I try to take about one hour each day to…

Spelt Oatmeal Pumpkin Cookies

Who’s planning to do some Sunday baking?! I AM! If you weren’t planning on it, then I might try to change your mind. Seriously, your Sunday needs these pumpkin cookies! Don’t worry, they’re also healthy. I made them with spelt flour, dates, pumpkin puree, oats and more delicious ingredients and spices. I honestly eat them for a morning snack every morning at work and they definitely help me get through my early shifts. That and coffee of course.  Also, this is the best cookie dough I’ve ever tasted. Better than any sugar-filled cookie dough. I actually made this recipe this morning and left half of the batch uncooked in the fridge… and no I’m not planning to cook them later. I’m planning to…
