Healthy Strawberry Brown Rice Krispie Treats

After finding out that I was sensitive to gluten, my love for rice krispie treats grew. I know that sounds bad and unhealthy, but hey, at the time, there weren’t too many gluten-free options when it came to desserts!

But within a year of only eating rice krispie treats, I felt like I was done for life. 5 years later, that’s all I crave! So, without further ado, I have made for you a healthier rice krispie treat -- but with a spin.

Healthy Reese's Peanut Butter Eggs

Growing up as a kid, Reese’s peanut butter eggs were always included in the Easter basket. Of course, there would also be a typical stuffed bunny or chick, a book or cute Easter pencils, and other candy (lots of it!) but the Reese’s eggs were my favorite.

I guess this recipe stems from nostalgia. As adults, we aren’t getting Easter baskets anymore. Instead, we may be the one putting them together! The good news is that I don’t have to wait around like I did as a child because I can now make them at home!

Chocolate Hummus

I’m not sure why I waited so long to jump on the “sweet hummus” train. At first, it sounded like a weird concept. Who would add sweet ingredients to chickpeas, olive oil, tahini, and lemon!? But once you take out certain ingredients and replace them with sweet substitutes, you can see how genius this concept actually is!

In the health world, you can find tahini and chickpeas in most vegan desserts. If you follow Ambitious Kitchen, you know she is the #tahiniqueen for all of her most recent desserts like my personal fav grain free tahini brownies.

What’s great about this hummus is…. it’s still hummus! Which means you can eat this as a snack, use as a spread, or for dessert and still feel good about yourself.

Fudgy Paleo Brownies

Growing up, brownies were my least favorite dessert. Maybe because the flavors were too rich or the texture was too dry, but nonetheless, I stopped eating them. Of course I would get the judgy looks and sneers but hey, they didn’t taste good to me! That is, until I had a fudgy vegan brownie at this bakery in Atlanta and I was floored! It was like the heavens opened up with arms wide open and sucked me in!

Chai Latte Donut Holes

Starting out as a new blogger, it can be easy to follow seasonal trends. For example, my Instagram feed was filled with pumpkin spice this and pumpkin spice that for a month! Now, in all genuineness, I truly love pumpkin and all things pumpkin spice, but I know not everyone feels the same way!

So I went back to what life was like before pumpkin spice, chai spice! When I was in school, I would have collections of chai teas from coconut chai teas to dark chocolate cayenne chai tea; I was obsessed! Now that I have perfected the chai spice mix, I think this nostalgia will never leave!
