Grain-Free Lemon Coconut Cut-out Cookies

"Crispy on the outside and chewy in the middle, these sweet lemony cookies are naturally sweetened and lovely. Grain-free and gluten-free, they feature a mix of high protein and high fiber flours.  They are also vegan, featuring coconut oil instead of butter."

If Kim opened a bakery, I'd be there EVERY day. :)

There's nothing like fresh homemade granola, so if you haven't ever made your own granola yet, now's the time!

St. Lucia Muffins

St. Lucia Muffins

These muffins were made in honour of the tropical paradise of St. Lucia. Combining bananas and coconut with a subtle kick of Caribbean rum, this otherwise healthy snack will surely take you to a faraway heaven on earth with clear blue water, endless sunshine, and tropical drinks garnished with umbrellas and fruit.

All we can say is that we want The Tolerant Vegan to be our BFF and to treat us to chocolate chip cookies baked into brownies, topped with chocolate frosting for our birthday. We're even willing to fork out money for that kind of friendship. Just putting it out there.

Gluten-Free Double Almond Chocolate Chip Cookies

Gluten-Free Double Almond Chocolate Chip Cookies

These agave-sweetened almond cookies sound amazing! I love the ingredients - for a cookie they're practically healthy. Jessica was equally impressed: "First time making gluten-free treats for a good friend who suffers from Celiac Disease. Super easy to put together and incredibly tasty... 10 minutes and into the oven they go!"

Healthy Sandwich Rolls

Healthy Sandwich Rolls

These sandwich rolls, made with oat flour and whole wheat flour, are a nice, healthier alternative to those store-bought white hamburger buns. Garnished with some crunchy seeds or wheat bran, they add great flavor and can even stand alone as a dinner roll.

Vegan Nutty Bars

Vegan Nutty Bars

Forming healthy habits in the new year should start with healthy snacking. Natalie's energy snack bars are a great example. She says, "all that protein and fiber is why they are so filling and can hold over an appetite longer than a bag of Skittles or chips."

Celine was determined to find the perfect vegan whipped cream, and when she came across Healthy Top, she was thrilled. She says it rivals the real dairy stuff she ate back in the day. It also makes for a perfect cake topper, as seen on this deliciously moist and fluffy apple spice cake she whipped-up to celebrate her new find.
