apple crisp
Holiday meals are  just around the corner, and if you’re slated with bringing dessert, this recipe is perfect.  It’s simple and so delicious that no one will suspect that it’s healthier than the usual apple pie.    The filling is made entirely from apples which become sweeter as they cook. This is similar to what happens …
Healthy popsicle loaded with fresh berries and coconut water
 Since July is the hottest month where I live, I don’t want to turn on the stove or stand over a grill.  Instead, I just want to hang out in front of a fan in the middle of the day and eat or drink something cold and refreshing. As a child, this cold and refreshing …
beans and pumpkin puree make these chocolate muffins moist and delicious.
I know that the title of this recipe makes it seem like it doesn’t have a place on Simply Healthy Eats, but these chocolate muffins contain a secret ingredient that increases both the fiber and protein content.    That secret ingredient is beans.  We have used black beans to make fudge here at Simply Healthy …

flourless peanut butter cookie recipe
I don’t know who was the first person to make these cookies, but I wonder if it was a mistake that went well, or was the original author of this recipe a baker who truly understood how different chemicals in food items that we eat interact in order to create something different.    Whoever it was, …
pudding made with chia seeds, almond milk, and pumpkin.
Everyone has heard that chia is a super-food.  In fact, Authority Nutrition reports that these tiny seeds are one of the healthiest foods on the planet.   Chia seeds are loaded with fiber, omega 3’s, and a host of other nutrients.   Did you know that they also make a healthy, delicious, and practically instant pudding? …
This recipe is not entirely original.  In fact, this recipe was found at Happy Healthy Mama as an accompaniment to an awesome Sweet White Bean Apple Dip Recipe which can be found here. I found this recipe during a frantic search for a dairy free fruit dip for an event that was scheduled for less …
This recipe was inspired by a recipe I found  at Homemade for Elle.  I was searching the internet for a dairy free dip to serve with fruit, and found this recipe.  I don’t know about you, but when the weather is hot, I really lack ambition in the kitchen.  I was looking for something that …
  Definitely simple and delicious, this recipe is worth a little altering to use for any fresh fruit.  Perhaps there’s still a few accessible peaches in your area, yet they’re not needed.  I tasted some pretty good pears just the other day, they would be perfect here.  Due to my dietary needs, I used gluten …
 It’s prime watermelon season here, and I’m a sucker for cake, of any kind. My sneaky friend, Patty, knows it.  She just happened upon someone’s version of this cake on pinterest, and she sent me a photo.   She knew I’d latch onto it like a vulture.  Well, vulture might not be the best word …
