Almond Butter Oat Cookies

Sometimes I play around with a recipe again and again and again… Each time thinking this is it – I’ve got it! When all of a sudden I make one more change and BOOM, I know I’ll never play around with it again. THIS is one of those recipes – using almond butter which is rich in vitamin E and …

Chia Crackers

These crackers are so quick and easy to bake up… But watch out, betcha can’t eat just one! You’ll find plenty of the omega-3 fatty acid rich chia seeds in these crunchy crackers, plus they are a fantastic use of coconut flour. They are, in fact, free from any grains typically found in crackers as they were created for a client …

Coconut Cherry Cookies

These cookies are a perfect ‘healthy treat’. The anti-inflammatory action from the anthocyanins and ellagic acid of tart cherries shines through in the dried tart cherries! While this a non-traditional cookie (it’s gluten-free, paleo, vegan, sugar-free – using only a few medjool dates and a touch of maple syrup to sweeten them), they are amazingly delicious – particularly if you’re a fan of coconut! Makes …

Power Cookies

I’ve been playing around with various versions of this recipe for some time now… But this is IT. Seriously. Last week I ate 2 (along with a Matcha Latte) and then went out and smashed my speed workout. It was amazing. I’m attributing that success solely to Power Cookies. And matcha. And my dinner the night before. And my awesome …

6-Layer Dip

This is the perfect dish to bring along to a potluck spread – it takes a little more time and effort to put together than you’d likely spend if it were just for you and looks more impressive than, say, a simple hummus / crackers / veggies platter! It’s dairy-free, gluten-free and vegan… But if you’re not worried about adhering to any of these …

Oatmeal Banana Cookies

Banana’s are a runners best friend – a quick energy source, perfect for just before and/or just after a run because they are so easy to digest; a great source of the electrolyte potassium; and a great source of prebiotics (fructoogliosaccharides – the food our healthy bacteria needs to thrive). For these reasons, and because they are a staple in …

Iron-Rich Protein Bars

Actually, the real name for these delicious bars is No-Bake Super-Simple Iron-Rich Coconut Chocolate Protein Bars… But that turned out to be just a bit too long, haha. The truth is these bars just have so much going for them! Plus, they are SO GOOD. And did I mention how quick and easy they are to throw together? They not …

Power Bars

I developed this recipe (which is more or less a spin-off of my Chocolate Energy Bites) while keeping two things in mind – I wanted these bars to be a healthier option than the processed packaged snack bars out there (my husband has a stash in his desk drawer at work for when I don’t make him the homemade version!), but at the same time I …

Pumpkin Hemp Muffins

When September rolls around, everything goes pumpkin. Which is great, because pumpkin is so good for us!! It’s a super rich source of vitamin A – in fact one cup mashed contains 245% of our daily recommended intake! The vitamin A is delivered to us in the form of various carotenoids including beta-carotene, alpha-carotene and beta-cryptoxanthin (which our body then converts into …

Apple Cinnamon Muffins

These muffins disappeared pretty much as soon as they came out of the oven! Not only are they the perfect pre-run snack (low in protein, fat and fibre and high in carbs), they are also super yummy.  Cinnamon is a spice that helps to stabilize blood sugar levels and is known to be anti-inflammatory. Plus, a number of studies have shown …
