Black & White Sesame Cookies with 100% Whole Wheat

Asian Sesame Cookies
Friday is Chinese New Year and I’m making quite a feast with my friends: pork dumplings, stir-fried Asian greens and these super delicious sesame cookies.

I could seriously eat them all in one sitting!

Chia Seed Breakfast Pudding with Berries

Berry Chia Seed Pudding

This sweet chia seed pudding is vegan, dairy-free and the perfect healthy dish for breakfast, or even dessert!

Flourless Peanut Butter Chocolate Brownies

Flourless Peanut Butter Chocolate Brownies
I’ll admit it, almost every night after dinner I get a craving for anything sweet, especially chocolatey stuff. So the other night I made these flourless brownies to test out for the blog.

These brownies are made with almond meal (yes, they are gluten-free!) but my special ingredient is chocolate peanut butter (Amazon Affiliate link).

Gingerbread Cake made with 100% Whole Wheat and Coconut Oil

German Gingerbread Cake
This treat is my take on a German classic, Gewürzkuchen, which translates into “spice cake”. And it’s a healthier version, perfect during a time where we’re all overindulging: 100% whole wheat without any butter or refined oil. This cake came out so delicious, you won’t believe there’s no white flour or butter! Check out my gingerbread cookies for a more traditional recipe.
