Healthy Chocolate Nut Butter Granola Bars

Healthy Chocolate Nut Butter Granola Bars

These don’t really taste healthy. But they sure do have a lot of healthy stuff in them.     Perfect. I have tried a lot of granola bars over the years. I remember eating those Valley-Something-Or-Other ones when I was in hospital and loving the peanut butter...

Coconut Banana Bread to Live For

First recipe of the year, Zimtees- and it is a good one! A few months ago, we participated in our local plant-based food powerhouses’  The Juice Truck and Erin Ireland’s Mindful Movie Night. Yep, it was macaroons and truffles and Peppermint Nib’d bars for all!...

Hey Zimtees-   I know you’re all over the place (literally!) but here in Vancouver, Canada, things were hot the past few months  (conveniently, while I was knocked out, in the house, healing from two broken wrists). That heat seems to have come and gone- somewhat at least....

Peanut Butter Cup In-A-Jar: Vegan, Gluten Free and Very Raw

Peanut Butter Cup In-A-Jar: Vegan, Gluten Free and Very Raw

Hey everyone!

Are we all still enjoying summer? Yes? Good- because this recipe is precisely for all the beaching, hiking, picnic-ing, pool lounging and BBQing that is left to be done!

I was walking back from dinner last night with Julia of nūd and coming at us in the opposite direction was a cake –  carried by a lady. She was carrying it out in the open – and very vulnerable to the elements (including my drooling on it – looked SO good).
