Decadent yet healthy Chocolate Prune Bars full of phytonutrients.
Because I’ve been getting quite a lot of requests lately for healthy dessert recipes and because I had a pound of organic prunes that needed to be used up, I decided I would develop a gluten free prune cake recipe.
After a string of successful and not so successful prune cake experiments, I had a different, yet satisfactory result: Chocolate Prune Bars. All in all these are basically fudgey prune brownies. Whatever ... read more →

I then decided that it might be fun to make a gluten free peanut butter and jelly cookie.
So here you have it, high protein, gluten free peanut ... read more →

This Coconut Chocolate Chip Ice Cream is the perfect refreshment for a hot summer day. Since every child in the neighborhood seems to be at my house at present, bouncing on our trampoline, it is going to make the perfect afternoon snack in a few short minutes.

I was working my way through the Cook’s Illustrated website the other night and came across an amazing recipe for Triple Chocolate Espresso Brownies. As soon as I laid eyes on that recipe I knew I had to create a high protein, gluten free version. While my husband enjoys all of my gluten free chocolate recipes, this is his fave. He even left a special love note on the fridge for me late last night after sampling them.
Of course this ... read more →

This high protein, dairy free Chocolate Mousse is made with anti-oxidant rich dark chocolate and contains no dairy products –a double win. I’ve also used coconut palm sugar rather than agave to sweeten it. Many people do not like agave nectar, believing it is an overly processed sweetener (the agave nectar I use is pure and organic). I don’t mind agave, though I thought the palm sugar would be a nice alternative sweetener for those that do.
Summer is moving along ... read more →
