5-Ingredient Cookie Dough Bites

5-ingredient cookie dough bites. Made in under 10 minutes in a food processor and filled with wholesome ingredients. What could be better?! Seriously though, cookie dough will forever be my favorite flavor when it comes to snacks and desserts. Ice cream, granola bars, energy bites… Anything. Even better when it’s simple and healthy, which is all you’ll see on the blog over the next few weeks. Did you read my last post? The news is out, Shaun and I are moving to British Columbia! We’re moving to the other side of the country in less than 3 weeks. Not to mention that we’re planning a road trip across Canada to get there. I think it’s safe to say that we’re crazy busy. Packing all of our…

Chickpea-Nut Butter Ice Cream

Chickpea-Nut Butter Ice Cream: Ice cream that’s made with chickpeas, plant-based milk, dates and peanut butter. So basically, a frozen dessert that’s high in fiber, healthy fats, protein (depending on the milk you use) and sweetened with fruit. To be honest, I kept this recipe from you guys since Christmas. I know, so selfish! In my defense, ice cream didn’t feel like an appropriate recipe to share during winter. Especially not with the cold weather we had in December and January. So why did I even make this recipe in December in the first place? Well, because it was supposed to be freezer fudge. Turns out, it had a texture similar to ice cream… I’m not mad about that at all. The other reason I kept this recipe hidden for…

Roasted Potato Pesto Salad with Spicy Chipotle Chickpeas

Roasted potato pesto salad with spicy chipotle chickpeas. Another delicious vegan recipe for you guys! I’m almost halfway through my vegan month and to be honest, it doesn’t feel different from my usual diet. That doesn’t mean it’s not a bit challenging at times. The most challenging change for me was to omit the milk in my coffee. While I don’t usually drink cow’s milk anyways (personal preference and a slight intolerance), I do add a touch of whole milk in my coffee every morning. Almond milk, coconut milk and soy milk are not the same. Nope. I just can’t tolerate the taste in coffee. So far, I’ve been using cashew milk, which tastes the best in coffee in my opinion. Vegan creamers would…

Vegan Loaded Queso Dip

Tomorrow is Cinco de Mayo and for the occasion, I’m sharing my favorite vegan loaded queso dip. May 5th was never something I associated with Cinco de Mayo… It’s actually never something I celebrated growing up. To me, May 5th is my childhood best friend’s birthday. Jasmine was born only 3 weeks after me and we’ve known each other since then. We grew up as neighbors and I spent almost as much time with her and her family as I did with mine. For that reason, we’re basically sisters. So this Saturday, we’re celebrating both of our birthdays… Maybe there will be Mexican food involved, we’ll see. This weekend will actually be an eventful one. First, I’m going to Moncton for Shaun’s graduation. We then have a…

Healthier Peanut Noodle & Tofu Bowl

Healthier peanut noodle and tofu bowl. My current favorite easy dinner. Have you ever tried a savory peanut butter recipe? If not, you need to try this out. Trust me, this peanut sauce is everything. Funny thing is, this recipe started off as a pasta-free salad with almond vinaigrette. Somehow this happened instead. I have no regrets. Before we moved to Saint John, I used to make peanut noodles almost weekly. Or at least I did for a few months, right before we moved in an apartment with my friend who’s allergic to peanuts. Naturally, this recipe was put on the back burner until I could use peanut butter again. I mean, I could have made a peanut-free version with Wow butter, which could have been good, but I decided to wait. In my opinion, it…
