Raw Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Truffles Recipe

Protein-rich, candida-friendly raw vegan chocolate chip cookie dough truffles - *almost* too good to be true...

Who knew you could make raw cookie dough truffles, with tons of protein? And that they'd be totally appropriate for people struggling to beat candida - which typically means nothing sweet of any kind?

Ricki Heller did...

Tropical Sangria Recipe *Video

Refreshing & tasty tropical sangria recipe for girls' night <3

This is a really refreshing and tasty mix of tropical flavors, sparkling water and white wine - perfect for girls' night!

I find that a lot of people think that I never drink alcohol, but I do. I don't drink very often, and when I do, I don't drink much. I also like to have nice light options, like this tropical sangria.

Chocolate Christmas Cookie Recipe *Video

Chocolate Christmas cookie recipe - healthy + vegan + cookie-monster-approved <3

These are an easy and healthy option for a vegan Christmas cookie. I had to make them chocolate, because everything should be chocolate at Christmas, right?

They're kind of a cross between shortbread and peanut butter cookies because I used almond butter instead of butter or coconut oil. If you want a more traditional shortbread cookie, coconut oil makes the perfect texture, but I wanted to make an oil-free version with almond butter.

I used teff flour, but you can easily replace that with any other gluten-free flour. A nut-based one would be perfect, like almond meal or just additional coconut flour.

Gingerbread Square Recipe + Live Q&A + Giveaway!

Sweet Eats For All! Gluten-free vegan baking with Allyson Kramer

Sweetened by banana, blackstrap molasses, and agave, this healthy gingerbread from Allyson Kramer tastes just as rich and spicy as the traditional version.

You may know Allyson from such recipes as her chocolate squash custard, or drenched pad thai salad, or from previous live hangouts about gluten-free cooking and her history with celiac disease.

This recipe comes from Allyson's newest cookbook, Sweet Eats For All, available now on Amazon - would make a lovely Christmas gift, I think. You can also enter to win a free copy below!

I am thrilled to be hosting Allyson for a live q&a session, and will be getting lots of answers about gluten-free vegan baking techniques for you! That's her gorgeous photo up there, too, both the book cover and the gingerbread squares on the right.

Red Plum + Basil Vinaigrette Recipe *Video

Simple homemade dressing to add a touch of sweetness to your salad

This is a super simple dressing that will add a touch of sweetness to your salad.

This recipe is from a fantastic book by Becky Striepe called Bowls! It's full of yummy and healthy ideas for meals in bowls. This dressing grabbed my attention because it reminded me of a dressing I made one summer with nectarines, which was delicious - and this one using plums was spectacular as well!
