Oatmeal Cookie Granola

Sure, milk and cereal is a classic. Especially Cheerios. There’s nothing more classic than a big ole bowl of original Cheerios with banana slices and a handful of blueberries. But sometimes, you just have to take a step out of your comfort zone and try something new. Get out there, be unique. Be creative. Be…

Cinnamon Banana Milkshake

When I was a kid, I loved going to the gym. Now, before I lead you to believe that I was naturally athletic or even good at sports, let me clear a few things up: I was not. Not even close. In fact, when I was little I would much rather have spent the whole…

Raw Vegan Strawberry Fruit Tarts

Salted Caramel Bites

What do you get when you combine sweet dates, rich cashews, chewy oats, and sea salt? Cookie dough so irresistible you’ll find yourself hard-pressed to not eat it all!
