Dark Chocolate PB Cups

They are creamy, dreamy and melt in your mouth! These peanut butter cups are so simple to make, with just a few ingredients that you probably have in the pantry. They come together faster than a trip to the grocery store and are completely customizable. Drizzle the finished cups with a bit of white chocolate, flaky sea salt or a sprinkle of chopped nuts for a fancy schmancy presentation. The possibilities are endless.

  • 2 TB peanut butter or any nut butter
  • 2 TB maple syrup raw honey or powdered sugar
  • 6 ounces dark chocolate 3/4 – 1 cup
  • 1 tsp coconut oil
  • Flaky sea salt optional


  • Have a mini cupcake dessert pan ready to fill.
  • In a small bowl, combine the peanut butter and maple syrup.
  • Stir until well blended and set aside.
  • Melt the coconut oil and dark chocolate (in the microwave, using a double boiler or in a pot on the stove).
  • Stir the oil and chocolate occasionally until it’s melted.
  • Fill the bottom of each mini cup with 1 tsp of the melted chocolate mix.
  • Place the pan in the freezer for 5-10 minutes.
  • Remove the pan from the freezer.
  • Next, add about 1/2 tsp of the peanut butter mix on top of the dark chocolate.
  • Now top it with the remaining dark chocolate.
  • Sprinkle sea salt lightly on top of the cups.
  • Freeze until firm, about 20-30 minutes.
  • Remove from the freezer. You can leave them at room temp or keep them in the fridge.
  • Enjoy your little treats!


The options are really endless with these treats. Depending upon how you like it, you can use more or less chocolate and peanut butter mix. I prefer more filling, so I use less chocolate and more filling mix.
You can store them at room temperature for a 1 week or in the fridge for about to 2 months.

Toasted Muesli with Coconut, Dark Chocolate and Macadamia Nuts

Since it’s so versatile and easy to transport, Muesli makes the best treat to have at work, take it with you on the road or just enjoy it as a meal with a variety of toppings. Put it in a mason jar, screw on the lid, and take it with you! Oats are very satisfying and this snack can keep you full for hours.
The end result is a lightly sweetened, slightly crunchy muesli. Try it with cold oat milk, or heat it up together with the milk to create a hot cereal. The add ons are endless from coconut yogurt to dried fruit, fresh fruit or seeds. I love the texture, flavors, flexibility and creativity in this delicious muesli!

Roasted Triple Squash with Brussels Sprouts, Pecans and Cauli Crumble

This delish dish is packed with flavor, antioxidants, colorful nutrients and crunch! 3 different squash (Acorn, Butternut and Honey Nut) make this one healthy meal as they are rich sources of vitamins A, C, K, and minerals like magnesium, potassium, manganese, coppper, phosphorus, calcium and iron. The topping, Cauli Crumble, takes just a few minutes to cook and adds a substantial amount of fiber and protein to the meal. This is a simple dish that is great for the holidays or any day of the week!

Spicy Spud Balls

These spicy spud balls are packed full of flavor with fresh herbs, spices, oats and red potatoes. They are incredibly delicious and nutritious with a nice crunchy outside. I’ve made many versions of balls and burgers using beans and grains but never potatoes. So why not try it! I can honestly say they were way better than I’d expected them to be and a big hit with my taste tester. We enjoyed eating them with pasta, salad and just by themselves with sauce.
