baked zucchini chips

Here’s a quick snack recipe! Because everybody loves snacks.

ZUCCHINI CHIPS

These are perfect as the weather gets cooler, and you finally dare to turn your oven on again. To make crispy chips, just like for apple chips, you have to bake it low and slow.

The zucchinis shrink A LOT. You can see the bigger circle around the chips where the zucchini used to be haha

Make them before the zucchinis are gone!

Short and sweet today! Not the most drop dead gorgeous recipe, but it sure makes up for it in how simple, healthy, and delicious it is.

Just like your favorite granola bars, these are chewy with lots of cinnamon spices and sweetened with honey. You can mix in whatever you want! Next time I make these, my choice will be almond slivers and dark chocolate chips :)

vegan peanut butter twix bars

VEGAN PEANUT BUTTER TWIX BARS

This may be the best no-bake vegan dessert yet!

In Australia, bars like this are called “slices,” which I rather like. So this would be a chocolate covered, peanut butter caramel, coconut almond cookie slice!

VEGAN PEANUT BUTTER TWIX BARS

Each layer is incredibly easy, as always, just a quick blitz in the food processor. The bottom “cookie” layer is sort of like a crumblier, drier Larabar, with coconut, almonds, and dates.

The middle peanut butter caramel layer–omg. I have always been so skeptical about date caramel, but as soon as I started spinning the food processor, lo and behold…it literally became caramel. It was amazing. I have only ever tried it with peanut butter here. It tastes like a creamy sticky and smooth peanut butter taste with a caramel texture (definitely not a bad thing). But I bet with almond butter, it would taste like legit caramel.

And finally, the chocolate ganache on top. When is it ever a bad idea to have a thick layer of silky soft dark chocolate?

no-churn creamy sesame ice cream

Screen Shot 2015-07-01 at 11.24.05 PM

A few weeks ago, I made the creamiest, easiest ice cream ever. This is a quirky flavor variation that’s probably pretty hit or miss with you. Sesame flavored things are definitely an acquired taste, let alone sesame ice cream.

But if the savory sweet combination of sesame in desserts is right up your alley (or if you’re daring and adventurous), DO THIS!

If you’re still hesitating, totally try the original. You can’t go wrong with classic vanilla swirled with fudge :)

You know a recipe is a keeper when I make it more than once.

But when you make something on a weekly basis to always have on hand forever and ever…

Well then you have this recipe.

This is perfect in so many ways. Full of healthy ingredients but insanely deceiving. It tastes like the best frosty fudge. So chocolatey and satisfying. Bonus: We all know how terrible turning on the oven in the summer is! This solves all your summer chocolate problems.

coconut flour carrot zucchini muffins

Coconut Flour Carrot Zucchini Muffins! Healthy and Paleo-friendly

I loooove zucchini bread in the summer, and I get so excited for the time of year when gardens start exploding with their zucchini crop. I also love carrot bread and zucchini bread on their own, so I knew I would go nuts for them together.

Coconut Flour Carrot Zucchini Muffins! Healthy and Paleo-friendly

These definitely lived up to my expectations, as Detoxinista’s recipes usually do! I would have NEVER known how to adapt the zucchini/carrot bread recipe into something this good using coconut flour on my own–still trying to figure out coconut flour’s tricky ways.

Anyway, take your zucchinis and put them in this! Feel free to use 1.5 cups of all zucchini or all carrots if you want, or any ratio in between that strikes your fancy.
