Seriously Addictive No-Bake Seedy Granola Bars

If I could eat only one thing for the rest of my life, I would choose these seriously addictive no-bake seedy granola bars. I can honestly make a batch of these bars and eat almost half of it throughout the day. One for a morning snack, one with lunch, one as an afternoon snack and one or two in the evening… Half of the batch, gone. Oups. I could also make a batch and eat 2 or 3 bars before I even add on the chocolate. Like I said, they’re addictive! Probably not a good thing for someone with a sugar addiction. They may not have any added sugar, but that doesn’t stop them from being addictive. It doesn’t help that I’ve had a hard time with the photography for…

Date-Sweetened Hemp Milk (Two Ways!)

I finally made homemade nut milk. Or I should say hemp milk. It was about time! Everyone has been making their homemade nut milk for years and somehow, I just tried it for the first time a few weeks ago. I think one of the reasons I never made homemade nut milk before is because I never knew where to get a good nut milk bag. I had given up on the idea of making homemade nut milk until I stumbled upon Ellie’s Best. They were generous enough to let me try one of their’s and I have to say, I absolutely love it! I know many other food bloggers who use their nut milk bag and now I know why. It’s good quality, it cleans easily and it’s fairly cheap. If you…

15-Minute Blueberry Flax Oatmeal

Recently, my go-to breakfast has been this blueberry flax oatmeal. I’m taking full advantage of blueberry season! Truth: This was initially supposed to be an overnight oat recipe. I tried it a few times, but it never ended up the way I wanted. It was a just a little too liquid for my taste – I like my oatmeal on the thick side. while I could have reduced the amount of liquid a little more and figured it out, I decided that since fall is coming, warm comfort food wouldn’t be a bad thing. This bowl is a perfect blend of comfort and summer. Fresh blueberries + warm oats. Plus, I’ve been eating these oats for several months now, so why not share the recipe with you? The overnight oats may come later! I…

Sugar-Free Cardamom Blueberry Muffins

It’s time to start thinking about back to school again and I’m here to help with these little sugar-free cardamom blueberry muffins.  Actually, this is the first year that I’m not going back to school. I still can’t believe it. No more university for me! Unless I decide to go back in the future that is. But for now, I don’t have to get ready for a new semester. However, that doesn’t mean I don’t have to worry about what I should add to my lunch box every day. That’s a constant struggle. Does anyone else hate making their lunch for work or school? I never seem to have a good lunch, unless I have leftovers from the day before… I…

My Favorite Protein Green Smoothie

Looking for a high protein green smoothie? This is my favorite.  This protein green smoothie is inspired by a recipe I made a while ago for Pure Goodness on Instagram. I’ve been making the smoothie non-stop since then, so I thought I should share it on the blog as well! I don’t believe that we need protein powder every day to attain our protein needs. Simply eat nuts, seeds, legumes and other high protein foods every day and you can easily meet your needs. However, I love using protein powder in smoothies when I eat them as a meal. I don’t always use it, but I like to have a little protein boost, along with other filling ingredients. If my smoothie doesn’t have enough protein and fiber, I get…
