Vegan Blueberry Cheesecake

Life can get pretty crazy sometimes, and time can seem to slip through your fingers in the blink of an eye. For example, the past few weeks, I’ve been a little lax on posting because amongst preparing for college, traveling to visit two different sides of my family, attempting to fit in a few  last…

Oatmeal Banana Bread Waffle (*vegan*)

The great thing about this waffle is that it isn’t good in spite of being vegan. It’s good because it’s vegan! I’ve found that recently, a lot of the waffles that I make with eggs tend to get really hard in the waffle iron before they’ve even fully cooked. Meaning that by the time a…

Toasted Coconut Banana Truffles

Girl Scout cookies are my absolute weakness. Samoas especially. There’s never been a better marriage made than that between toasted caramel and chocolate. And samoas boast both flavors, with the addition of a crunchy cookie and caramel sweetness. They almost make the 140 calories per serving worth it. Almost. Because I know that when it…

Butterscotch Pretzel Cookies

My best friend’s godmother makes handsdown the best chocolate-covered pretzel rods I’ve ever eaten.

My best friend brought them to a…

Healthy Chocolate Peppermint Donuts

What just screams the winter season? Well, first off: snow. Lots and lots of snow. Last year, my hometown got almost 2 feet of snow. However, I now go to school in DC (since coming to college), which is two hours north of my hometown and gets about 6 inches to a foot more snow…
