Vegan Strawberry Shortcakes (lectin-free, gluten-free & mostly sugar-free)

You guys, Summer is quickly approaching. You know what that means, right? Berries, peaches, sunshine, extra smog, and did I mention berries? Berries are probably my favorite fruit to keep around (aside from avocados) as they’re loaded with antioxidants, not loaded with sugar, they’re darn versatile, and they taste friggin’ delicious with chocolate. As you…

Moist Coffee Infused Cake w/ Spiced Chai Frosting & Dark Chocolate Drizzle (Plant Paradox-friendly, vegan, lectin-free, sugar-free, grain-free, gluten-free)

When I think of grand desserts, I think of cake. Something about those layers of creamy frosting sandwiched between layers of fluffy cake, decorated with other edible delights like chocolate, more frosting, whipped cream, more frosting, and… well, you get where I’m going. To add to my infatuation, cakes/cupcakes are one of the few pastries…

Classic coconut cream pie, made for everyone. A few weeks ago I put up a poll on Instagram asking what kind of pies you guys would like to see us make. There was a plethora of options, but it turns out what you guys want to shovel into your mouth is: coconut cream pie, chocolate…

Sea Salt & White Chocolate Glazed Cookies (vegan, lectin-free & sugar-free)

Baking is really fun… when it goes right. And when you’re making recipes from scratch without basing them off other existing recipes, things don’t always go right. That’s 10 times the case with cookies. You guys, I don’t know what it is. Why are vegan, gluten-free & sugar-free cookies such a hassle to make? All…

Keto-Vegan White Chocolate (sugar-free, gluten-free, & Plant Paradox-friendly)

White Chocolate is kind of that one food that’s forbidden by every single diet ever. It’s high in fat, it’s full of dairy, it’s mostly sugar, blah blah blah. You know how it goes. Well I say: fuck that. We can make anything fit our lifestyle – white chocolate is no exception. Thus, it’s my…

Fluffy Vanilla Funfetti Cupcakes (mostly sugar-free, vegan & gluten-free)

What birthday cake did you beg your mom to make you for your birthday? For me, it was carrot cake, so this post obviously isn’t about me. Nope, this is about Kim. Well, indirectly, I’m not going to talk about Kim the whole time, I’m going to talk about cupcakes. If you can’t tell already…

10-Minute Avocado Smoothie Bowl (sugar-free, lectin-free & vegan)

For the past two years, avocado smoothies have been one of my go-to breakfast & post-workout foods, as they’re creamy like a milkshake, nutritionally packed (depending on what you add, of course), and loaded with healthy fats, which fulfills every part of my body – not just my stomach. Having gone through changes in dietary…

Matcha Scones with White Chocolate Frosting & Pistachios (vegan, gluten-free, & sugar-free)

It’s time to get green y’all – and I ain’t talkin’ bout bud. I’m talkin’ bout matcha and pistachios, because it’s St. Paddy’s Day, and heck, we can all use a little bit more green in our lives (and diets). Honestly, I thought making scones would be hard. I guess because I see them so…

Sugar-Free Red Velvet Cupcakes with Vegan Cream Cheese Frosting (grain-free & Plant-Paradox friendly)

Red velvet cupcakes are the epitome of a perfect dessert. They’re decadent, pretty to look at (that’s half the point of confections, right?), and they’re personally portioned, so it’s even better if they’re jumbo sized. Sadly though, cupcakes are often disposed to boxed cake-mixes or in-store purchases, both of which can be sickeningly sweet and…

Homemade Coconut Yogurt Parfait (grain-free, vegan, & Plant Paradox Friendly)

Little sings a cute breakfast for two like yogurt parfait. Bbuuttt, with the dairy, grains, and sugar, it’s not quite the healthiest Valentine’s breakfast, which is why we’ve made some fitting altercations to make this parfait a breakfast of champions. The first dilemma to deal with is yogurt, which is best solved by using coconut…

Sugar-Free Cookie Dough Bites (vegan & Plant Paradox friendly)

In recent months, I’ve slowed down on my consumption of nut butters. Not because I stopped enjoying them, merely because they’re too darn expensive. I mean, nuts are great, but  I usually don’t wanna pay $18 for a pound of organic hazelnuts when I could buy a pound of white rice for less than a…

Salted Citrus Blondies with Toasted Walnuts & Dark Chocolate Chips (sugar-free, vegan, gluten-free, & Plant-Paradox friendly)

Good day friends! This may just be the best desert we’ve ever made. Its flavors are unique, without being “too far out there,” its texture has a perfect balance between chewy & caky, it’s really easy to make (always a plus), and it includes my favorite desert additive: salt. When we think sweets we tend…

Coconut Chocolate Breakfast Muffins (grain-free, vegan, sugar-free, & Plant-Paradox friendly)

“If you don’t know, now ya know…” that… that banana flour is the bee’s knees. I know, not the way you expected that phrase to end, but this newly found flour has got me fucked up. Let me just outright say that it’s the closest in similarity to all-purpose flour I’ve found thus far. In…

Mini Mint Chocolate Ice Cream Pies (vegan, sugar-free, gluten free & Plant Paradox friendly)

The end of the year has almost come… time to make every last excuse to eat chocolate & peppermint goodies before it goes out of style. These mint chocolate ice cream pies come from a recipe I adapted from Dr. Gundry’s book The Plant Paradox, in which he makes mint chocolate ice cream from avocados.…

Glazed Gingerbread Cupcakes (Vegan, Sugar-Free, Gluten-Free, & Lectin-Limited)

“Raise your hand if you like cupcakes!” “Alright, yeah, you go Cassandra! I like cupcakes too. The rest of you can eat muffins for the rest of your life.” “But aren’t they the same thing?” “THE SAME THING? You’ve got to be kidding me! You’ve been in culinary school for how long and you think…

Sugar-Free French Vanilla Creamer (vegan & Plant Paradox friendly)

I admit, I’ve started to miss coffee creamers since cutting out sugar. It’s not the sweetness  or the flavors that I miss. Rather, it’s the simplicity of adding one thing to your coffee before it’s good to go. For the past couple of months, my habit’s been to heat up coconut milk on the stove…

Chocolate Cake with Coconut Mint Frosting (sugar-free, lectin-free, & vegan)

Experimenting with our cornless cake recipe led us to discover that “Hey! Yeah, I’m talking to me. Maybe making a light, moist, fluffy, and sweet cake isn’t impossible without sugar, wheat, and all the things that make most cakes light, moist, fluffy, and sweet.” The process starts by beating together solid coconut oil with erythritol,…

Classic Hot Chocolate (stevia sweetened, vegan, & lectin-free)

This is a simple recipe with only 6 ingredients and 3 photos, so I’ll try to keep it short on my end as well. This formula has been our go-to hot chocolate recipe for the past 6 months, because it takes no more than 10 minutes to put together, it’s sugar-free, creamy, silky, chocolate-y, and…

Salted Caramel Cornless Cake (lectin-free, sugar-free, & vegan)

After our Cornless Bread recipe, I started to realize that maybe the world of baking isn’t impossible to dance around in, even with a strict sugar-free, vegan, and lectin-limited diet. It took a while, but through the month of November we discovered that the mixture of cassava & sorghum flour – in different ratios –…

Classic Sweet Potato Pie (sugar-free, gluten-free, vegan & Plant Paradox friendly)

  Pie is scary food. Tedious crusts. Fillings that have to be set just perfectly. Lots of waiting to eat it after it comes out of the oven. The people who think that cake is the queen of bougie desserts have clearly forgotten about pie. Homemade pie crusts have become taboo, most fillings come from…

Sugar-Free Avo Nog (Plant Paradox friendly)

Not to be confused with awkward nog, this drink is my take on my Uncle Jerry’s famous eggnog… well, famous to me at least. To make his nog, egg yolks were soaked in whiskey overnight, then beat with sugar, heavy cream, cinnamon, and nutmeg. The egg whites on the other hand were whipped to medium peaks…

Cabernet Cranberry Jam (lectin & sugar-free)

Unlike many children, I loved cranberry jelly growing up. You know, the jiggly one from the can? Clearly, there’s always been a few screws loose in my head. Nevertheless, I grew up to realize that not many people like cranberry jelly, which is a real shame, because cranberries are an overlooked fruit packed with antioxidants,…

Sweet Potato Spice Latté (sugar-free, Plant Paradox friendly, & vegan)

In the last post I said that along with the changing of seasons comes my incessant desire to eat sweet potatoes 24/7 – did you think I was kidding? With pumpkin spice lattés, popcorn, cookies, hand soap (yes, hand soap), and other souvenirs, it’s hard not to want in on the craze, no matter how…

Fluffy Sesame Muffins (sugar-free, grain-free, lectin-free, & vegan)

Hello October! It’s nice to feel your gentle, chilly breeze again.

Sugar-Free Brownie Cake

Sugar can go, lectins can go, dairy can go, gluten can go, but brownies… brownies can not go. Brownies are essential to life; the idea of engulfing a brownie at the end of the day is enough to get me through a day’s work. Brownies = Life. Moving on. Before we dive into this decadent,…

Layered Mint Chocolate Pudding

Chocolate mint is my favorite flavor combination of all sweet eats, and it’s scope is far beyond that of just ice cream. The base of this pudding is avocados that are mashed with cacao powder, peppermint extract, and a few other ingredients to create a rich, sweet, tingly cream that’s both deeply satisfying and healthy.…

Sugar-Free Chocolate Chip Cookies (Vegan & Gluten-Free)

CCOOOOKKIIEESSS. Who doesn’t love cookies, right? I mean, sure, to some extent or another, we all try to avoid them – but only because we love them so much that if we eat one we’ll be tempted to eat a hundred. And we all know eating 100 cookies isn’t good for us. I’ll say it…

Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins (Vegan & Gluten Free)

If there’s one thing I’ve learned through the process of creating this recipe, it’s that perfection takes patience and persistence. We made six test batches of these muffins before we achieved a recipe we’re proud of. SIX BATCHES. Do you know how many lemons & poppy seeds dedicated their lives to the perfection of this…
