Vegan Keto Three Ingredient No-Bake Peanut Butter Cookies (gluten-free, soy-free, tree nut-free)

Vegan Keto Three Ingredient No-Bake Peanut Butter Cookies (gluten-free, soy-free, tree nut-free)

This week I thought I’d go back to my roots with a no-bake vegan keto cookie recipe. When I first started out on a vegan keto diet in 2012, there were no recipe blogs or books or social media accounts for vegan keto recipes or…

Vegan Keto Eggnog Bread Pudding (gluten-free, nut-free)

Hello, friends! It’s late December and I hope you’re feeling as festive as I am. “Festive” to me means baking vegan keto versions of all my favorite holiday treats and this week I’m tackling bread pudding. I know what you must be thinking – “but…

Vegan Keto Dark Chocolate Sesame Bars (gluten-free, nut-free, paleo)

Well, hello there! Summer is coming to an end where I live, so I’m back to making myself more snacks instead of avoiding the heat of the kitchen. These vegan keto dark chocolate sesame bars may not look like much, but they’re surprisingly delicious, and CRISPY. Yes, you read that right, crispy. If you’ve been doing keto for any amount of time, you probably know how difficult it is to find crispy snacks that are low carb and vegan. (more…)

Vegan Keto Strawberry Yogurt Bark

Vegan Keto Strawberry Yogurt Bark

Even though I’m always cold, I am not a big fan of warm weather. So, the fact that today it’s 95°F (35°C) with 96% humidity…is less than ideal. Needless to say, I’m not turning on the stove or the oven. I am, however in the…

Low Carb Vegan Rugelach (gluten-free, dairy-free)

Low Carb Vegan Rugelach (gluten-free, dairy-free)

Holiday baking for me always means cookies. While closer to Christmas, I like to bake gingerbread, sugar cookies and kołaczki, during the festival of lights, it’s all rugelach for me. For those of you who aren’t familiar with rugelach (or rugelah), they’re a cream-cheese based…

Vegan Keto Blueberry Doughnuts (gluten-free, nut-free, soy-free, sweetener-free)

Vegan Keto Blueberry Doughnuts (gluten-free, nut-free, soy-free, sweetener-free)

Hi, friends! Happy Friday (or whatever day you happen to be reading this on). Summer is in full swing, and I’ve really been craving blueberries lately. When I was younger, one of my favorite weekend treats was the blueberry cake doughnut from Honey Dew Doughnuts, which is a coffee and doughnut place here in New England. Pretty much every weekend of my teens, I would scoot the two towns over (#smalltownlife) to snag a doughnut and a giant iced coffee loaded up with sugar. That’s not an option for me anymore for a multitude of reasons, so I thought I’d come up with a vegan keto blueberry doughnut to sate that craving. (more…)

Vegan Keto Chocolate Chip Cookies (gluten-free, nut-free, soy-free)

Oh, hello there, friends! How are you all doing?  I’ve really been feeling the need for cookies, more specifically chocolate chip cookies. I don’t know about you guys, but I like my chocolate chip cookies on the dense and chewy side with just a little…

Vegan Keto Red Velvet Waffles (gluten-free, coconut-free, soy-free)

We’re on the eve of Valentine’s Day and I was craving something sweet that I could also use as an excuse to bust out my heart-shaped silicon mold to use for heart-shaped pats of buttery spread. So, I channeled my inner Leslie Knope and decided…

Low Carb Vegan Kołaczki (gluten-free, grain-free, nut-free)

Low Carb Vegan Kołaczki (gluten-free, grain-free, nut-free)

Oh, look, I’m finally posting Christmas things just a few days before Christmas. I’m the worst. Because my dad’s family is Polish, I grew up eating a lot of Polish foods, especially at Christmas time. These cookies are  a staple from my childhood. They’re called Kołaczki Świąteczne (ko-watch-ki shvee-ohn-tetch-ne …ish) and are really easy to make, but super delicious. This vegan keto kołaczki recipe uses few ingredients and is nut-free, gluten-free, dairy-free and egg-free. It’s perfect for the holidays!

Vegan Keto Peppermint Bark Fat Bombs (nut-free, soy-free, paleo, low-lectin, low-FODMAP)

I really like mint and chocolate, and one of my favorite wintery treats used to be that peppermint bark that was basically a layer of mint-flavored dark chocolate, covered by a layer of white chocolate and then topped with crushed peppermint candies. Since absolutely no…
