Today’s the day to have some cake. Why? You deserve it. You’re awesome. How do I know that? You’re reading this post! Also, this “cake” is gluten-free and is only sweetened with fruit (with options for vegan and whole wheat substitutes in the Tips Section!). Kinda hard to call it cake based on the ingredients, but it sure tastes like one! With the knowledge that you’re only $1.50 and 10 minutes away, every day is a day for cake.
Know Your Ingredients, Know Your Costs
A world without chocolate cake is not a world I want to live in. However, it’s no secret that a couple slices of chocolate cake aren’t the definition of healthy eating. Thankfully there’s a healthy way to work in chocolate cake to celebrate special occasions or a successful Tuesday! Especially when this chocolate cake is refined sugar free, gluten-free, and contains no processed ingredients while only taking about 50 minutes to create (cooling time included)! Party on!
New Recipe on the blog today! $0.25 and 20 Minute Peanut Butter Cups!
Peanut butter cups were my favorite candy growing up. Every Halloween, they were that candy that I would set aside for last because I knew they would be the best! As I’ve embraced unprocessed foods, I figured that I had eaten my last peanut butter cup. But that was not a world I could live in. Turns out by combining a few of my favorite recipes ($2 and 5 Minute Almond/Peanut Butter and the chocolate topping from $5 and 30 Minute Cardamom Raisin Squares!) they can quickly be created in your own kitchen for a fraction of the cost of those store-bought peanut butter cups I grew up craving! And better yet, they only have 4 ingredients! This healthy dessert is truly worth your time – your inner child will thank you!
Granola is one of my favorite foods not only to make but also to share. This is my go-to granola recipe that contains only pure ingredients with no added processed sugar for the cost of $0.50 a serving. Make sure to scroll down and check out both the Chocolate Peppermint and Coconut Honey versions!
I can’t think of a better way to kick off the new year than with this $0.50 and 70 Minute Whole Wheat Apple Banana Bread made with no added sugar. Bananas and apples are plenty sweet on their own so any extra unhealthy processed sugar is just unnecessary. Plus, there is a cup of nuts packed up inside. It doesn’t get any better than that. Start off your new year right by indulging in this healthy treat!
