The Healthiest Peanut Butter Hot Chocolate

Everyone is sharing healthy smoothie and salad recipes to start the New Year and I’m just here, sharing a peanut butter hot chocolate… One week into 2018.  This is not just any hot chocolate recipe though. This is the healthiest hot chocolate recipe (just go with it).  Why am I calling it the healthiest hot chocolate recipe? Well, because it doesn’t have any cream or sugar. Instead, it’s made with cashews, peanut butter, dates and cocoa. What could be healthier?!  (Okay, there is probably a “healthier” hot chocolate out there with special expensive ingredients, but I wanted a simple healthy drink that uses everyday ingredients). I made this recipe a few weeks ago, after walking home from work in -34°C weather (we’ve been experiencing very…

Healthy Peanut Butter Crunch Balls

I would have shared these healthy peanut butter crunch balls with you sooner, but the truth is, I didn’t have any photos to go with the recipe. That’s the problem with being a food photographer and working full time at another job. You don’t get enough light to take pictures during the week. I developed the recipe earlier this week and I knew I wanted to share it with you guys for the holidays. I know I’m last minute, but at least I got to share the recipe before Christmas! Just before driving home to see our family. And before the freezing rain starts… We’re expecting two storms over the weekend, including 20-30 cm of snow on Christmas day. I guess we’ll have a white Christmas after all! I know…

Healthy Caramel Peanut Butter Apple Slices

We went apple picking last weekend and I’m finally sharing my first apple recipe of the season: Healthy Caramel Peanut Butter Apple Slices. Things have been busier than ever over here. Not only am I studying for my dietetic exam that’s coming up this November, but I also started my new full time position at the hospital, which obviously takes up all of my time during the week. I absolutely love working in diabetes education, but training is always stressful and I can’t wait to feel a little more settled and comfortable in my new position. On top of that, we finally started wedding planning (!!!), which doesn’t leave much time to work on the blog and even less time to relax.  When I say wedding planning, I mean pinning a bunch…

Peanut Butter Strawberry Swirl Nice Cream with Cookie Dough Crumble

I’m finally sharing the recipe for my peanut butter strawberry swirl nice cream with cookie dough crumble! I shared a picture on Instagram last week and many of you have been asking for the recipe since then. Well, here it is! I meant to share it yesterday, but I got sick and spent Friday and Saturday in bed… I hadn’t felt horrible like that in a long time. I’m not even sure what it was, but all I know is that I couldn’t stand up without my head spinning and feeling like I was going to pass out. I’m feeling better today (thankfully!) and I’m finally ready to share this nice cream recipe with you guys! I know that I’m sharing yet another strawberry recipe…

Peanut Butter Cookie Dough Bites

Life update: we moved in our new apartment! I’m having so much fun emptying boxes, organizing our stuff and decorating the apartment! Yes, I get extremely excited about organization. Sometimes I remind myself of Monica from Friends… I love when everything is in clean. I might be a control freak. I might be. Now I could continue talking about the apartment, but I’ll save that for another time. Instead, let’s get right to the recipe! Today I’m sharing an old favorite of mine. Another peanut butter recipe?!! YES. This might me my last one until next year (I wrote about it in last week’s post), but that could be a good thing. It might force me to try different flavors once in a while… You could say…
