Chocolate Caramel Slices

I made these last week and put the recipe in my social media caption and everyone went nuts. My Instagram and Fb blog page lit up and I got a ton of comments and likes. They are super delish and a great dessert to make to impress your friends. I love making caramel with dates and nut butter-this is the best part of these bars!

Sorry I haven't been updating the blog alot but I think this is just how it's going to be. I'm super busy with my yoga studio and I haven't been making new recipes or recipes that I think are worth sharing. I've been kind of lazy in the kitchen so let me find my inspiration again and I'll update this blog alot more. I'm also training for the NYC marathon so much of my eating is going to be boring bowls of protein and veggies. But don't worry, when I make an epic recipe, it will be going right here!

Make the base first:
7 soaked medjool dates
1 cup of pecans
2 heaping tbsp of cocoa. 
Blend until it's a crumbly crust

9 soaked medjool dates
1 cup of peanut butter
1/3 cup of non dairy milk
Add the milk slowly
Spread on top of the crust

Chocolate topping
Melt dark dairy-free chocolate. Cool then pour on top of the caramel. Freeze for 30-60 minutes then cut and enjoy.

These are a great dessert to make and then freeze for when you feel a craving come on or want to make a dessert ahead of time. I would keep them in the freezer until right before you serve them because they can eventually melt.

Chewy Energy Bars (no added sugar, vegan, gluten-free)

Energy bars with lot of fiber, minimal sugar and high protein are a great snack. I grab and just go and I feel full for the time that I'm out and about and I need to get things done. I love a few brands of energy bars but I also love making my own-it's easy to choose what ingredients go in them and you can make a bunch and freeze These particular bars are without sugar by default since I ran out of maple syrup. They are still so delish!

Peanut Butter Vanilla Oat Milk Smoothie

I love trying new plant-based milks even though I usually buy West Soy unsweetened soy milk. I go for milks that have the least amount of ingredients and are organic. West Soy unsweetened plain soy milk is organic soybeans and water. Beautiful. If I don't buy milk, I make it myself, either almond or oat milk. Yesterday I bought oat milk and it is DELICIOUS!

How to Make Fluffy Basmati Rice

I'm always and forever trying to make rice like they make at Indian or Persian restaurants. It's so delicious, fluffy and flavorful and I love the texture of basmati rice. So, I was talking to a friend who makes rice alot and he helped me with the recipe. The idea is to sautee the rice first and add ingredients that will give it flavor such as garlic, onion, spices etc. I serve the rice with beans or tofu, either sauteed or in a curry sauce. Rice is just so amazing, it's simple but nutritious and is a great alternative to bread or other grains.
