Raw Vegan Keto Strawberry Crumble (sweetener-free, paleo, low-FODMAP)

Raw Vegan Keto Strawberry Crumble (sweetener-free, paleo, low-FODMAP)

I always crave fresh berries in the summertime. I don’t know whether it’s the heat or the fact that I’m more active in warmer months, but either way, I tend to listen to my body and eat the darn things. Berries are pretty much my…

Vegan Keto Chocolate Hazelnut Spread

Vegan Keto Chocolate Hazelnut Spread

If you follow me on instagram and see the stories I post, you’ll notice I eat a lot of nut/seed butters. As a snack. From the jar. I’ve spent a long time browsing the internet looking for a delicious, vegan “notella” to keto-ify. But, every…

No Bake Vegan Keto Lemon Squares (gluten-free, soy-free, paleo)

No Bake Vegan Keto Lemon Squares (gluten-free, soy-free, paleo)

There’s something I really want to get off my chest, and I’m not sure how everyone will take it. The truth can hurt, but I really feel it’s important to be open and honest, especially when it comes to food and diet. So, here goes: I like lemon better than chocolate. I know… I’m a monster. I don’t know what went wrong to make me this way, but it’s how I’ve always been, and probably always will be. So, to satisfy my never-ending hunger for lemon-flavored treats, I thought I’d whip up some no bake vegan keto lemon squares. (more…)

Vegan Keto Red Velvet Cupcakes (gluten-free, nut-free, soy-free)

Happy Valentine’s Day! What’s that, you say? I should have posted this before the actual day, so you could make them today? Yeah, that would have been better, but that’s just not where my life is at right now. Anyway, I’ve really been in the…

Vegan Keto Gingerbread Muffins (gluten-free, nut-free, soy-free)

Vegan Keto Gingerbread Muffins (gluten-free, nut-free, soy-free)

It’s that time of year again where my apartment is super cold, and the best way to warm it seems to be with baking. Not only does a morning of baking make the kitchen slightly toasty, but it also makes my entire apartment spell amazing.…

Egg-free, Dairy-free Vegan Keto “Eggnog”

Egg-free, Dairy-free Vegan Keto “Eggnog”

As you have probably figured out from the multitude of pumpkin, apple and other fall-themed recipes that I keep posting, I really love fall. It’s definitely my favorite season – cozy sweaters, warm beverages, beautiful scenery (I live in a pretty heavily wooded area of New England, and realize how spoiled I am) – what’s not to love? Unfortunately, this lasts about three weeks before everything gets cold and gray and you really have to motivate yourself to get out of bed in the morning. Just me? Never mind then… The good news is that late fall/early winter is the perfect time to start making deliciously spiced drinks. While hot chocolate is my stand-by winter beverage, it’s rapidly giving way to my new obsession: vegan keto eggnog. (more…)

  Happy Halloween, everyone! Halloween is hands-down my favorite holiday of the year. I just love every aspect of it…except for the candy. I have yet to find a commercially-produced vegan keto candy that doesn’t upset my stomach. So, like with most things, any Halloween…

Vegan Keto Chocolate Almond Butter Cupcakes (gluten-free, coconut-free, soy-free)

Vegan Keto Chocolate Almond Butter Cupcakes (gluten-free, coconut-free, soy-free)

I know I’ve really been babbling about this a lot lately, but I really am just so excited… my cookbook is just one week away from release! Side note – you can get it delivered on the actual day of release (October 30th) if you…

Vegan Keto Cider Doughnuts (gluten-free, nut-free, soy-free)

Vegan Keto Cider Doughnuts (gluten-free, nut-free, soy-free)

Fall is in the air, and so I’ve been playing around with fall flavors every time I cook or bake something. For baking, this pretty much just means cinnamon and nutmeg go into everything. I grew up within walking/biking distance of three different apple orchards, and so apple cider and cider doughnuts were a mainstay of my childhood autumns. Every year when September hits, I start to crave one of these doughnuts. Obviously a plant-based, gluten-free, keto-friendly doughnut isn’t on the market, so once again, I’m left to create my own. After some trial and error, I arrived at this delicious recipe for vegan keto cider doughnuts.

Vegan Keto Chocolate Doughnuts (gluten-free, nut-free, soy-free, coconut-free)

Vegan Keto Chocolate Doughnuts (gluten-free, nut-free, soy-free, coconut-free)

You know you have those foods built up in your head that you crave from time-to-time? The ones that you haven’t had in so long, you genuinely don’t know what they taste like anymore. For me, that food is doughnuts. Because I’m both vegan and…
