You know what one of the best parts about summer is?? The food of course! One of my favorite being s’mores….yeah I know not the healthiest! Ever since going vegan it has been quite hard to find vegan marshmallows. They are out there, but only carried in specialty supermarkets and are a bit pricey. One step down from your traditional smores’ is a smores’ bar!
I have seen these everywhere from pinterest and instagram to magazines. These are an easier and more indulgent way to enjoy the delicious combination of graham cracker, chocolate, and toasted marshmallow.
So I decided….how exactly would I be able to “healthify” a s’mores bar? Continue reading “S’mores Bars | A Healthier Version”
I was a bit hesitant on making this recipe, as I have never experiment with gluten-free baking before, but it turned out way better than I expected! These Caramel Vanilla Bean Cookie Slices are too die for and I was holding myself back from eating the whole batch.

Another thanksgiving recipe coming to you! Gravy is a staple in a thanksgiving meal. It is topped on everything and anything! Mashed potatoes, stuffing, veggies…you name it. Turkey gravy is often very salty and not vegan of course. I threw together this really simple and easy gravy that will hit the spot this thanksgiving.
It is amazing on top of my Vegan Lentil Stuffing! This gravy is lower in sodium then your traditional gravy, and is made out of pretty simple ingredients. Continue reading “Easy Vegan Mushroom Gravy”
It’s finally that time of year! Thanksgiving is less then a week away and I can not wait any longer. I am so excited to stuff myself with a ton of delicious vegan food. Before I was vegan I always thought that I would start hating thanksgiving, because there would be no options. No turkey?! What am I going to eat?!
What I have learned over this past year of being vegan is that, I don’t have to miss out on anything!! Almost anything can be made vegan. From mashed potatoes to stuffing, I can have it all. Last year I made a couple recipes of my own for thanksgiving and I didn’t have a chance to share it with you all. Unfortunately, those recipes got lost. This year I decided to give those recipes another try and I made them even better this time. Continue reading “Vegan Lentil Stuffing | Healthy & Easy”
