I just came across your blog- I am obsessed! As a university student myself (and attempting to be health conscious), this is a new go-to place. Thanks so much for the great recipes. As for your wish-list, try greek yogurt! There are a few recipes circulating the blog world with this, but I'm sure you can tweak your own and make it wonderful. Cheers, Sara
in a recipe preview you talked about reeses cups, but i can't find it :(is it still "in the making"? i'm so excitedthank you still for all those awesome recipes!
Hey Marina,They took a while to perfect, but the Reese's PB Cups are finished!http://chockohlawtay.blogspot.com/2012/03/peanut-butter-cups.html
Marina- yes, they are still in the making, the filling just needs to be tweaked a little. I'll be sure to make those soon ;)-Jess
Hi Jessica: Can you contact me at email@example.com. I would love to share your recipe for coconut mousse bars on my website. I couldnt find your direct email so Im posting my request here.thanks!
Wow, thanks! I checked out your website, it's beautiful :)You can definitely share my recipe on your site. I appreciate your interest.-Jess
How about a Healthy Chocolate Croissant?
That is a great idea! Definitely a challenge though (lots of butter, refined flour and cream)... it deserves a spot on the list! :)-Jess
http://blog.lagusta.com/2011/08/28/80-perfect-croissants/ what about these?
Wow those look great! I love the use of coconut oil instead of butter, but I would still have to try and make them whole grain. I'll definitely try these out, hopefully soon, thanks :)
I tried whole grain croissants at D'Azeglio, *the* breakfast place in Bologna, so can testify it's doable and tastes heavenly!
Can't wait for the healthy cinnamon rolls! I recently made a "healthy" version for my boyfriend and they were more like a sweet biscuit with butter sauce :/
Bridget- I'll make the cinnamon rolls a priority on my to-bake list then :)And I'm sure your boyfriend loved what you made, cinnamon roll OR biscuit! I mean, food is food to a guy ;)-Jess
Awesome. Haha so true!
These are a different texture from conventional cinnamon rolls but meet your nutrition criteria.. maybe you could play around with the recipe? http://mariahealth.blogspot.com/2011/10/cinnabons-and-why-whey.html
That recipe sounds awesome, and I love how it's yeast-free since I'm allergic. I need to make those ASAP! That site looks awesome too btw. Thanks Mila! :)
No worries :) Here's another version, btw, same site: http://mariahealth.blogspot.com/2012/09/amazing-cinnamon-rolls-and-wheat.html
How about a healthy coconut creme pie?
Mmmm delicious, what a great addition! That has actually been on my personal wishlist for some time now, I've just never been successful at it :( Hopefully I will soon, though!
Hey there! Check out my healthy coconut cream pie recipe here: http://rawfoodlove.blogspot.ca/2012/02/chocolate-banana-coconut-cream-pie.html Maybe it'll give you ideas? Can't to see when you make yours! I love your blog.
I can completely relate to your sweets addiction! When I was younger, I loved to eat store bought cupcakes and cakes with buttercream at least once a day. Now, I can't do that without gaining lbs, but I still have my sweet tooth :( I recently started eating 'clean' and eliminated refined sugars and only consume organic desserts and sugars. Therefore, I AM IN LOVE WITH YOUR BLOG :) I can't wait to try some recipes to satisfy the sweet tooth that I still have! (although now its more controlled) My weakness are COOKIES. Have you tried making a sugar cookie recipe or a lemon sugar cookie recipe? What about plain/traditional chocolate chip cookies? Thanks for sharing your wonderful recipes!
Thanks Melissa! You are like my long lost sister, I used to eat cookies, cakes and frosting ALLLL the time... and still can ;)I've made chocolate chip cookies numerous times but I was never 100% satisfied with the results. It's either too dry or too poofy or the flavor isn't quite right. I could easily solve most of the problems by adding more oil but I want the recipe to be moderate in fat, unlike the storebought kinds that are 90% butter :/You will laugh, but I attempted shortbread cookies once and it tasted like cornbread. How? I don't know, but once I find the right recipe, I will post it ASAP!For now though, these are my most successful cookie recipes:http://chockohlawtay.blogspot.com/2012/06/nutella-chip-oatmeal-cookies.htmlhttp://chockohlawtay.blogspot.com/2012/06/thin-chewy-peanut-butter-oatmeal.htmlhttp://chockohlawtay.blogspot.com/2012/08/white-chocolate-macadamia-shortbread.html
sounds good! thanks for the references :)I plan on making some of your recipes tomorrow, can't wait!
I just recently healthified cinnamon rolls!! (I plan on healthifying them even more soon... but start slow, right?) I used sweet potato in the dough, which made them super fluffy and gooey and delicious. http://www.chowvida.com/2012/09/soft-and-gooey-cinnamon-rolls/Also, I recently healthified creme brulee! It is in my "soon to be posted" line up.... :) super yum.
Thanks for pointing me toward the recipe, and I CANNOT wait for the creme brulee recipe! I've never been a fan of it but my entire family begs me to make creme brulee just about every other month ;)
Wow I'd love cinnamon rolls healthified lol~
How about pumpkin pancakes?
Baked Shortbread Protein bars with a real dense consistency, seems like it would be right up your alley..
Mmm that sounds delicious!
