Cookie Butter Chocolate Cups

I am a big fan of chocolate cups.  These cookie butter cups are my latest creation.  I also have some pumpkin chocolate cups and some copycat Reese’s cups on the blog.  I used my homemade cookie butter to fill these cookie butter chocolate cups, but you can also use the store bought cookie butter too.  I used chocolate chips for the chocolate coating, but I am guess my 3 ingredient chocolate recipe could be used as well.

Cookie Butter Cups - My Whole Food Life

This yummy chocolate dessert is vegan, gluten free and paleo.  It’s also very easy to make.  I made mine in standard sized muffin cups, but I think making mini cups would be great too.  Then you could use them as an ice cream topping. :)  The gingerbread-like flavors of the cookie butter go so well with the chocolate.

Homemade Enchilada Sauce

My husband does a lot of the savory recipes for this blog.  This homemade enchilada sauce recipe is all his.  This homemade enchilada sauce is super easy to make.  It’s packed with flavor since we roasted the tomatoes prior to using in the sauce recipe.  Not only does this homemade sauce taste delicious, it will make your house smell amazing too!

Most store bought enchilada sauces contain unwanted additives and also processed sugar.  This sauce recipe containes neither! Some of the other recipes my husband has created are the Peanut Noodle Stir Fry, Sweet Potato Chili and Pumpkin Enchiladas.  This enchilada sauce is vegan, gluten free and paleo approved.  This sauce recipe makes a big batch and freezes well.   I hope you enjoy it.

Flourless Blondies

I was recently asked by a reader to create a flourless blondie recipe.  So that is how these flourless blondies came about.  If you had my super moist flourless brownies, you know that beans can work very well in dessert recipes.  These flourless blondies are so yummy.  I was eating the batter right out of the food processor.  That is one good thing about making healthy vegan desserts.  You can eat the batter without any fear of getting sick. :)

These healthy blondies are so good!  I am telling you no one will ever know there is beans in these.  Kind of like my peanut butter cookies.  My kids were totally fooled!  These blondies are vegan, gluten free.  If you want to make them grain free, you could probably use quinoa flakes in place of the oats.  Quinoa is technically a seed, not a grain.
