Probiotic Carrot Cake Popsicles

I’m one of those crazy moms who is always looking for more ways to get her kids to eat more veggies. My kids actually aren’t picky; they eat their veggies with usually no fuss…but that doesn’t stop me from trying to get veggies into every possible thing. Take popsicles for instance. Popsicles are not generally thought of as a healthy snack. You can make them yourself and those generally turn out healthy so long as you leave out the crazy amounts of sugar. I am fine with my kids having popsicles but I decided to take healthy popsicles one...

Coconut Berry Hearts

I have a confession to make. I’m a bit addicted to conversation hearts. I never grew out of the straight sugar candies. Naturally, conversation hearts are everywhere during the time around Valentine’s Day. It’s easy to want to share my love of conversation hearts with my kids but do I really want them eating them? No. I do not want them growing up with the same horrid sweet tooth that their mama has. What does this natural mama do? I make my own healthy version! I originally wanted to call these Healthy Conversation Hearts but… I didn’t put any...

Holiday Pudding Trio

Do you love pudding? What am I saying! Everyone loves pudding? It’s a classic snack/dessert that everyone loves. It’s simple, pretty affordable, and it tastes oh so yummy! Of course, commercial puddings really aren’t all that healthy for you. They have artificial ingredients like dextrose, modified cornstarch, fake flavorings, polysorbate 60, and food dyes. I don’t know about you but I don’t really want to eat those ingredients! So I came up with my healthy vanilla pudding! It’s cornstarch free and sugar free! However, if you would rather not use stevia you can easily sub in 1/4 cup of...

Chocolate Espresso Coconut Haystacks

Have you ever had a haystack? I don’t know what planet I was living on but I had never even heard of one until I was married! I don’t even know how that’s possible… maybe it’s because growing up we didn’t have much coconut since my dad hates the stuff. In any case, I was missing out! I had my first haystack at Cannon Beach, Oregon… which is home to the iconic Haystack Rock. A more fitting place there can not be to have your first haystack. For those of you who are just as clueless about haystacks as...

Honey Apple Oatmeal Cookies

I love oatmeal cookies. It’s a bit of an odd thing, considering I really do not like oatmeal! Oatmeal cookies, warm and fresh out of the oven will always be a welcomed treat for me! Honey Apple Oatmeal Cookies are a nice, healthy variation of oatmeal cookies. Warm apple, soothing honey, and comforting oatmeal makes these cookies a perfect treat for fall… or any time of the year! Cookies are generally not the healthiest thing on the block. When you are making the switch to natural living and healthy eating, well let’s just say cookies are generally frowned upon....

Healthy Pumpkin Pie

Pumpkin pie, it’s hardly on the list of healthy foods right? Usually it’s full of sugar. Not that we can’t indulge every now and then… but what if I told you that you could have your pumpkin pie without feeling like you cheated your healthy way of eating? That’s right, I have a recipe for a healthy pumpkin pie!!! This pumpkin pie has no refined sugars, no evaporated milk, or even heavy cream… not that there’s anything wrong with a healthy fat like heavy cream! Instead, this pie is sweetened with stevia and honey! Normally I’d just do stevia...

Flawless All Butter Pie Crust

I’ll admit it, I’ve used store bought pie crusts when I’ve made pies in the past. Pie crusts just seem intimidating and up until now, I thought that pie crusts always used shortening. I’m not a fan of shortening. So I avoided making pie crusts.Then I gave this all butter pie crust a try and life will never be the same. Now store bought pie crusts have ingredients that are much worse then just shortening. I didn’t really think you could get to crazy with pie crust ingredients but companies have found a way… curious as to what I...
