Lighter Coffee Cake with Yogurt, Pecans, and Raisins

Rating: 5 stars
I wanted to make a lighter version of the traditional coffee cake, and came up with this recipe. We loved it at home! We eat it as a snack or at breakfast. This is a delicious alternative to the traditionally butter- and sour cream-heavy coffee cake. The raisins add a lovely fruity bite, and applesauce, coconut oil, and nonfat yogurt give the cake a lighter, naturally sweetened taste. Wrap in aluminum foil to keep moist outside of the refrigerator for up to 4 days.

Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies

Rating: 4.55 stars
These are yummy, kid-friendly, vegan chocolate chip cookies! Add in any other mix-ins of your choosing. Remember, the texture of the cookies will be different from regular baked goods because of the lack of dairy and eggs. The dough may be a little crumbly, but just smoosh it together and it will work fine!

Instant Pot® Coconut Curry Chicken

Rating: 4.54 stars
This is a rich, creamy coconut curry dish that comes together quickly in an Instant Pot®. Customize the taste by using more or less curry powder and sugar. Delicious over jasmine or basmati rice! Garnish with chopped chives, if desired.

Raw-Vegan Mango Coconut Truffles

Rating: 5 stars
You need only 3 ingredients for these delicious vegan truffles and they are 100% natural. You can sweeten them with agave syrup if you like but I think they are sweet enough as is.

Chocolate cherry coconut scuffins are the perfect blend between a muffin and a scone. Greek yogurt and 3 different sugars make this scrumptious treat wonderful any time!

Roasted veggies and sauteed tempeh are piled on top of bulgur and drizzled with an orange-curry vinaigrette. Also delicious with chicken or shrimp instead of tempeh.

Homemade chocolate that melts in your mouth. Made without artificial ingredients or waxes, this wholesome treat is ideal for the health conscious individual who enjoys an indulgent treat. Sweetness can be tweaked to taste, and add-in ingredients and combinations are endless. Enjoy!

Instant Chocolate Hard Shell

Rating: 4.69 stars
Two ingredients and less than 5 minutes to a delicious chocolate candy shell for ice cream. After trying recipe after recipe that turned out either rock hard or thick gummy hard shells - I thought to read the ingredient list on a bottle of the store stuff and came up with this! You can use any oil that has NO flavor or has a flavor compatible with chocolate and your ice cream - canola or soybean work ok here, but the coconut oil sends the flavor over the top and makes it a tad crunchier! Drizzle on top of your favorite ice cream!

Instant Pot® Popcorn

Rating: 4.5 stars
I love popcorn cooked in oil but do not love the mess it makes on my stove, so I decided to give it a try in the Instant Pot®. Not only does the coconut oil give it that movie theater flavor, there was ZERO grease splatter. I listed salt as a generic seasoning but feel free to experiment with flavors such as powdered cheese, ranch powder, Frank's® powdered Red Hot® seasoning, etc.
