Super Seed Granola and Homemade Oat Milk

Kim shares her recipe for this super-yummy super-healthy sugar-free gluten-free seed-packed spice-kissed granola, and shares all the healthy tech specs for the nutrition geeks out there - hello!

"Serve with non-dairy or dairy milk or yogurt, over shredded jicama  (surprisingly tasty!) or fruit, or as a snack all on its own. Crunchy, full of flavor, and loaded with nutrients, this granola is sure to become a staple in your pantry."

Bonus: For those who don't do dairy, or like to drink a variety of healthy beverages, she also shares her easy recipe for cultured homemade oat milk.

Healthy Vegan Energy Bars

Healthy Vegan Energy Bars

I love this healthy whole-grain vegan recipe sweetened with maple syrup and stevia. Bake these then throw a couple in your bag to help you get through your busy day with a boost of delicious energy - minus the sugar crash.

Natalie says "Not sure if these vegan bars are hot enough for you! But they are great and moist, and you can't tell there is no butter or granulated sugar in the recipe. :)"

Right up my alley girl! Healthy vegan baking is definitely hot. :)

Amaranth Squares

Amaranth Squares

I love playing with all the wonderful ingredients available here in southern Mexico, like the nutritious ancient grain amaranth. I came up with these no-bake treats to satisfy my craving for something sweet, gluten-free and healthy using local ingredients. I have the pleasure of guest posting this treat on La Fuji Mama - woohoo!

Recipe and story: Amaranth Squares

PS: Yes, Baking is Hot is *mostly* a baking blog, but no-bake treats are OK when it's reeeeaaallly hot out. :)

Multigrain Honey Almond Quick Loaf

Multi Grain Honey Almond Loaf

I love the sound of this hearty quick bread made with almond, buckwheat, quinoa, and oats (it can be made gluten-free if you use gluten-free oats). The other thing I love about this healthy loaf is that it can be thrown together in about an hour!

Still need proof that vegan and/or healthy goodies doesn't have to mean unpalatable baddies? Have a look at these summery treats and be convinced all over again.

Homemade Seed Crackers

Homemade Seed Crackers

from two spoons

I highly recommend baking your own crackers, as fresh crisp crackers made with your choice of ingredients (and love!) are incomparable to the store-bought variety. I love this recipe for healthy little crackers made with whole grain flour, black sesame seeds, and whatever other seeds you fancy.

Recipe: Seedy crackers

These can be made vegan too. :)

Almond Spelt Sweet Rolls

Almond Spelt Sweet Rolls

"Crispy, crunchy, buttery, scone-like rolls" made with spelt flour and a touch of sweetness - healthy and delicious!

Seed Bread

Seed Bread

from Macheesmo

Macheesmo bakes this wholesome and satisfying loaf with some of his favorite seeds - and walks us through the process of making one for ourselves with any seeds we fancy. He says "If you’ve never, ever, baked a loaf of bread, this can be your first loaf. It isn’t terribly hard, doesn’t require days of prep, and you don’t need any special equipment. It’s also the best loaf of bread I’ve made all year."

Macaroon Truffle Tartlets

Macaroon Truffle Tartlets

The combination of coconut and chocolate is a classic for a reason - the chewy nutty bite of shredded coconut, paired with smooth rich dark chocolate is just bliss! Besides being spectacularly delicious, these little tarts are also gluten-free and super easy to make.

Another thing I LOVE about this recipe is that there isn't a ton of sugar in it... I'd almost dare to call these healthy! In moderation of course. :)
