NUT BUTTER BROWNIE TRUFFLE BITES (plant-based, gluten-free & low-fructose)

Call me crazy, but after much deliberation followed by a split-second decision, I started doing PIIT28 last weekend. If you’ve ever heard of Pilates enthusiast extraordinaire Cassey Ho, you probably know what it is. For those who don’t know, it stands for Pilates Intense Interval Training and is a 28-day fitness reboot that’s done in 28 minutes per […]

Well, just in time for Swedish midsummer picnic time, here it is… and I promise that you will not regret giving this recipe a go! A few years ago, my […]

An alternative to the ubiquitous bliss ball, these easy-to-make cookies are low-sweetener, dairy-free and egg-free, with a nutty protein boost. Perfect bite-sized treats to curb a sweet craving or provide some extra energy between meals. Speaking of energy, as I sit here editing this recipe (that I first drafted a year ago!), I find myself far more pregnant than […]

BERRY BURST BUCKWHEAT MUFFINS

With 6 days to go until baby 3’s due date, I am truly in full-blown nesting mode… and, for me, that includes food preparation (and eating 😀 ). I have had this recipe hanging around for some time now, but decided to modify it further. It now contains just 1 teaspoon of stevia granules for an […]

The batch you see in the images here were made from apples we picked as a family from our friends’ mini orchard, north […]

As has been our family tradition for the past few years, this Halloween saw carved and stuffed bell peppers on the menu. Wanting to update them somewhat, I came up with this recipe, loosely based on the first one that we ever used. The kids have been dressing up for days. We’ve seen variations of […]
