Dark Chocolate & Cranberry Quinoa Blondies

Dark Chocolate Chip & Cherry Quinoa Blondies

“This is the best healthy dessert you’ve ever made.” THAT is what came out of my guy’s mouth after he ate one of these blondies. That is BIG.

Pom-Apple Spice Quinoa Granola

Pom-Apple Spice Quinoa Granola

It’s pretty hard to find someone that doesn’t like granola–the nutty-crunchy-dried-fruit goodness is pretty hard to resist.  But once a synonym for ‘healthy’, granola has fallen off of it’s high horse. News segments have pointed out store-bought brands soaring calorie counts, blog posts have railed about excessive amounts of sugar, and countless eyes have skimmed over articles […]

By now, many of us recognize the benefits of incorporating quinoa into our diets. Low glycemic index, high in protein, and generally a very “whole” food—and tasty to boot! If you’re a faithful reader of my blog, you’ll know that I’m a big fan of bulgur wheat as well, for many of the same reasons. […]
