Cacao Almond Butter Energy Bars

Sometimes, I’m really bad at time management. For example, Freshman year I was late to school about 7 times in one marking period. I kept wondering: “Why can’t I make it on time? I don’t have that much to do in the morning!” It wasn’t until my first lunch detention that I realized my problem…

Apple Date Energy Bites

We all know it, we’ve all felt it, we’ve all been there. When you get home from work or school, are ravenous, and grab whatever snack is in the immediate vicinity and scarf it down before you could say “guilt”.

In all seriousness: I initially intended for these babies to be “granola bars”. But after baking them and tasting them for the first time, I discovered that they…

Simple Rosemary Hummus

I have to admit: I once tried to make hummus and ended up with a thick, tasteless mess. Of course, this was three years ago and I may have substituted half of the ingredients for things I had in my cabinet. And added too much garlic… Way too much garlic. But I am happy to…
