raw fruit crisp (vegan, no sugar)

(Printable version of this recipe are near the end of the post. This post contains affiliate links which help fund this blog but at no cost to you.)   Last week, I shared one of my favorite go to recipes: raw granola. This week, I’m sharing one of my favorite ways to eat it, especially as a snack. When you first “give up” eating certain foods, it can be hard not to lament all the foods you loved to eat B.D.C. (before the diet change). Like traditional fruit crisp. While I’ve never been much of a pie person, I always …

raw granola (vegan, no sugar, raw)

(Printable version of this recipe are near the end of the post. This post contains affiliate links which help fund this blog but at no cost to you.) Word on the street is that most people who visit recipe blogs want the goods up front and without the life stories. I get it. I often do that too. #guiltyascharged So I’m making a slight change in posting format to get you to the recipe faster. However, I know there are a few of you who also enjoy learning more about the blogger behind the recipes. If that’s you, then you’ll …

vegan nut Parmesan (vegan, dairy free, gluten free)

(this post contains affiliate links which help fund this blog but at no cost to you)   I think one of the hardest things about going “all in” with a plant-based diet is giving up the dairy…especially cheese. It’s one of the foods I thought I could never live without and believed it would be easier for me to be a vegetarian than a vegan. Thankfully, we’ve entered an era where it’s easier than ever to give up our “could never live without” foods, especially when our health is at stake. So today I’m sharing with you one of my …

easier-than-pie apple crisp (no added sugar, vegan, soy free, dairy free)

  I never was much of a pie person. Unlike pizza where I could eat just the crust, pie crust left me cold. And making it? My results were rarely worth the effort. Which is why crisps are more my speed. Easier to pull together and capped with a sweet, flavorful topping…mmmm. Yes. Please. My favorite way to make this apple crisp also makes it virtually foolproof because you can control your chunky-to-sauce ratio and turn out the perfect-for-you apple crisp every time. Personally, I like things a little more on the saucy side. For the topping, I swapped out …

german chocolate cake (vegan, no added sugar, soy free)

  Happy Birthday…to me! Yep, it’s my birthday today and I’m celebrating by sharing this german chocolate cake recipe with you. But first…if you’ve been checking regularly with me, you might have noticed it was awfully silent here last week. It’s for a good reason, I promise you, and I’ll be revealing more later this week (eek! excited!). My newsletter tribe already got a bit of sneak peek. If you also want to be among the first to hear exciting news and never miss a recipe, sign up for the newsletter here. I also share a little more content and …

Chop Salad with Pecan Parmesan and Caesar Dressing

There’s just something that feels so right about eating a colorful bowl of salad. Agree? And something rustic yet subtly sophisticated about the name, “chop salad.” Throw in a salty, savory topping and a garlic-infused dressing, and that’s a two forks up in my book. I’m sharing this recipe with my Sugar Pretox Challengers, and couldn’t resist sharing it with you as well. It comes together easily and is made with ingredients that you probably already have in your pantry or fridge. The pecan parmesan is inspired by the recipe in Angela’s  Oh She Glows Cookbook. Watch those pecans when …

three-ingredient cinnamon toast (sugar & oil-free, vegan)

On this last day of March I’m making a last ditch effort to post a new recipe before we turn the calendar to April. Although it’s been rather quiet here at brownberry tales,  on my side of the screen, it’s been business, and busy-ness, as usual which has led to the starting, but not finishing two other posts. Every once and awhile I hit a meal planning slump (such a depressing, clunky word, right?). But honestly, it’s challenging to maintain enthusiasm when planning meals for six palettes that don’t always agree on what tastes good, especially when it comes to …

vegan oatmeal cookies, fruit-sweetened (gluten-free option)

As I shared before I left on a mission trip to the Dominican Republic, I wasn’t sure how I’d feel when I returned…if the work I was doing before would mean all that much after working to provide a home for a family. And though I am finding it hard to be back (and not just because of the snow and the cold), I am realizing that the work the Lord has for me to do here does matter…just in a different way. I’m grateful for the work I do have here and it’s keeping me moving forward instead of …
