When creating healthy baking recipes, I usually find a basic recipe on the back of a flour bag and work off of that. It helps to know how much to start with to make a serving. I use whole wheat spelt flour which is much easier for the stomach to digest than regular flour. Spelt flour also helps boost the body’s metabolism and—ready for this?—aids in the creation of sex hormones! Don't be afraid of the whole wheat flours either; taste is not compromised!
Valentine’s Day is around the corner, and what better way to celebrate than creating your own sultry chocolate dessert. Traditionally, we tend to give our loved ones conversation hearts, boxes of chocolate, or truffles. Perhaps it’s the aphrodisiac effect the chocolates have on our bodies or perhaps it’s the sweetness that is presents.
Fruit salads are great for breakfast or for a refreshing afternoon snack. But when they’re enjoyed as a dessert, they’re mainly topped with whipping cream, yogurt, or chocolate sauce. This coconut cashew cream is a delicious alternative to the usual toppings you would add to your fruit salad.

Here are two creative ways to prepare tasty chia pudding. Chia puddings make for a great nutritious breakfast, mid-afternoon snack, or simply for a sweet treat whenever you so desire. These super seeds are packed with omega 3 fats, protein, and dietary fiber. You can also add whatever fruit you like to make it a fuller meal.
Here’s a winter favorite, one that is minty sweet with a refreshing blueberry aesthetic twist. I had an appetite for some healthy antioxidants and mint and created a treat that was rather unusual. With exceptional taste and no added sweeteners, this desert came together into a delicious, plant-based kefir, protein bar that rises beyond the level of actual homemade ice-cream. The only trick is to find or make your own non-dairy kefir, then this high-protein snack comes out quite nicely. A definite must do again when it comes to gourmet protein kefir bars.
Sweet treats abound during the holiday season, and we continue to add to that oh-so-good list with this recipe. For many, Christmas wouldn’t be complete without a bit of pudding. Okay, so this isn’t a traditional Christmas pudding with the liquor and cooking and cake-like consistency, being a fairly regular everyday kind of pudding.
This raw Apple Protein Ice Cream Cake is my first attempt at making an all raw post-workout dessert for athletes and cross trainers. I made this dish with the intent of creating a high protein superfood cake you can enjoy at any time of the day. This isn't your typical apple dessert.

Oh, there is love in chocolate. A few of my fondly referred to “indulgent addictions” and “wish I didn’t love it, yet I do” items are dark organic chocolate, truffles, great organic decaf coffee, and a luscious red wine. Pair the chocolate with the wine or espresso—heaven!
