Vegan baked goods often have a bad rap—turn out one “off” batch and no one will want to touch your “crumbly and dry” dairy-free desserts again. When it comes to cornbread—which can bake up dry even with dairy in the mix—making a moist, cake-like confection is tricky. I played around with a basic recipe to find the perfect blend of ingredients, which includes homemade flax “eggs,” rich coconut oil and your choice of maple syrup or agave.
School’s almost out, which means end-of-year celebration notices are flying home in the kids’ folders. Sports awards ceremonies, classroom parties, graduation get togethers—whatever the occasion, chances are you’ll be invited to least one potluck, which means you get to pick a dish, any dish, to share with your kids’ friends and their families. Rather than bringing in yet another iceberg lettuce salad or box of processed supermarket cookies, why not impress the crowd with something creative?
Why bother with white sugar when raw honey is just as sweet–and good for you?! “Raw” refers to the non-filtered, non-processed form of this sticky substance, made by bees from the nectar of flowers. In its pure, natural state, honey is swimming with vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, live enzymes and other beneficial nutrients. Plus, it tastes great, whether swirled into a cup of hot tea, drizzled over a warm muffin or eaten straight from the spoon!
Get your grill ready for the big get-together with a recipe that’s perfect for your vegetarian guests. Thick-sliced eggplant is tossed with a mixture of sweet honey, olive oil and coconut flakes then grilled until tender. Serve it as a side with other BBQ favorites, or make it the main dish for a healthier holiday meal.
Ever experienced organic sticker shock? Even for simple, everyday items such as bread, buying organic can be tough on your tight budget. I believe everyone has the right to eat clean, healthy foods – which is why I’ve been experimenting in my kitchen to come up with the perfect, organic bread recipe for less than $2 a loaf! (Bonus – it’s easy too!)
If crust or crumble toppings are your favorite part of baked apple desserts, you’re going to love this Cranberry Apple Crisp. It’s covered with crispy-chewy whole-grain clusters, laced with bits of dried cranberry and rich dark chocolate. Serve warm with honey or Greek yogurt as a healthy dessert or unexpected breakfast treat.
Raw veggies, hot pretzels, potato wedges, chicken tenders—everyone’s favorite snacks are even tastier dunked in honey-mustard sauce! Pass on preservative-laced, artificially flavored, squeeze-bottle varieties. This simple recipe calls for just three ingredients and is easy enough for the kids to make.
