Chia pudding is one of my favorite summer breakfasts and this Rose and Hibiscus Tea Chia Pudding hits the spot! Delicate floral notes simmered into creamy nondairy milk, this chia pudding is the perfect breakfast with all of your favorite fruits.

It is hot outside! So let’s uncook everything, shall we?

It just hit 100 degrees here in Philly. The LAST thing I want to eat when it is this hot out is something warm, especially for breakfast. However, this tea infused chia pudding is the one thing I will turn my stove on for because it is just that GOOD.

Don’t worry. It’s only for five minutes.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Miso Truffles

The best and easiest dessert with a bit of a twist, these Chocolate Peanut Butter Miso Truffles will be the star of your snack or dessert spread. It sounds a little strange to add miso, but trust me on this one. Five ingredients and thirty minutes separate you from sweet nirvana.

If you know me, you know I am a sucker for a chocolate/peanut butter combo. You might also know that I love a savory moment and adding secret ingredients to things. Well, now I can honestly say that these babies are no longer a secret!

And trust me, you will not want to keep them a secret either!

Buttery Pretzel Shortbread Cookies

Festive, easy, and so much fun! I am always a sucker for salt and sweet so buttery pretzel shortbread cookies seemed like the best recipe for your cookie exchange! You can also just eat them yourself. I promise I will not judge.

We are overdue for a cookie recipe! Are you excited?

I am such a snacker. If I can find a way to get snacks in while, at the same time, eating dessert, you best believe I am going to do it. Pretzels and shortbread? Salt and chocolate? You best believe I am going to whip it OUT

Tahini Truffles with Chocolate Drizzle

These tahini truffles with chocolate drizzle taste like halvah. They are seriously the easiest treats to make! Five ingredients, 10 minutes, and a little patience stand between you and chocolate treat nirvana. They are vegan, gluten free, and beyond delicious. Don’t miss that flaky salt on top! Shall we?

If there is one thing I have learned this year, it is that meal prep saves lives. As a graduate student, if I do not have something in my fridge that takes more than five minutes to prepare, I will be eating popcorn for dinner. Not that popcorn for dinner is bad… just not all the time.

Paleo Apple Cider Donut Mug Cake

An apple cinnamon dream! Apples, almond flour, maple syrup, and spices combine to make the perfect fall treat. Make this paleo apple cider donut mug cake in less than 5 minutes and have apple cider goodness right at your fingertips.

You knew this was coming, didn’t you?

I needed to add in some apple cinnamon flavors for fall ASAP this year. I actually prefer apple to pumpkin but we just went on a major pumpkin/squash binge. Safe to say, this needed correction. But don’t worry. We are back on course with this cider donut mug cake.

My body is ready.

Sweet Potato Pie Stuffed Dates with Chocolate Drizzle

Sweet Potato Pie Stuffed Dates by @thecuttingveg #realfood #healthydesserts #vegandesserts

Whipped sweet potato pie stuffed dates are pretty much the non-recipe recipe you didn’t know you needed! A dairy free sweet potato filling gets stuffed into juicy medjool dates before a quick drizzle in melted chocolate. Top with coconut whipped cream, close your eyes, and be taken to fall nirvana.

As a lady with not a whole lot of time (hello midterms!) but with a whole lot of basic-ness in my soul, I am always on the hunt for a quick and delicious no bake treat. Now, I haven’t really dabbled in the no bake dessert life. I am mostly a eat all the popcorn for dinner type of gal. But these sweet potato pie stuffed dates? Oh you better believe I am here for it

So let’s get talking.

It’s fall now… and now time to break out the fall flavas. Normally, I am a summer girl, loving all the summer flavors. And, for the past few weeks, I’ve been nagging y’all about how much winter squash does not get a whole lot of loving. Well, we will be changing that ASAP with this Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Mug Cake. I cannot BEAR to go this entire season without a recipe with pumpkin in it.

Who’s with me?

Which is good news for y’all, because I’m typing this so I have have absolutely no need to speak. We can just communicate like we are robots on an episode of Guardians of the Galaxy and I am totally here for it… THE WAVE OF THE FUTURE!

Dear goodness, what have I become?

5-Ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies

These are just what every Monday needs.

I mean… it’s funny. I fully intended on writing a post about a salad this week, but just something about the weather made me think warm carb-y goodness. Granted it’s currently very, very cold, and very, very rainy outside, so talking about a  salad, just didn’t seem right. Rainy days need cookies, and hey, at least these cookies are healthy…ish!

Now we’re talking!
