  1. I just came across your blog- I am obsessed! As a university student myself (and attempting to be health conscious), this is a new go-to place. Thanks so much for the great recipes. As for your wish-list, try greek yogurt! There are a few recipes circulating the blog world with this, but I’m sure you can tweak your own and make it wonderful.
    Cheers, Sara

  2. In a recipe preview you talked about reeses cups, but i can’t find it 🙁 is it still “in the making”? I’m so excited thank you still for all those awesome recipes!

  3. Marina- yes, they are still in the making, the filling just needs to be tweaked a little. I’ll be sure to make those soon 😉

  4. Hi Jessica: Can you contact me at I would love to share your recipe for coconut mousse bars on my website. I couldnt find your direct email so Im posting my request here. Thanks!

  5. Wow, thanks! I checked out your website, it’s beautiful 🙂 You can definitely share my recipe on your site. I appreciate your interest.

  6. How about a Healthy Chocolate Croissant?

  7. That is a great idea! Definitely a challenge though (lots of butter, refined flour and cream)… it deserves a spot on the list! 🙂

  8. Can’t wait for the healthy cinnamon rolls! I recently made a “healthy” version for my boyfriend and they were more like a sweet biscuit with butter sauce :/

  9. Bridget-
    I’ll make the cinnamon rolls a priority on my to-bake list 🙂 And I’m sure your boyfriend loved what you made, cinnamon roll OR biscuit! I mean, food is food to a guy 😉

  10. Awesome. Haha so true!

  11. How about a healthy coconut creme pie?

  12. Mmmm delicious, what a great addition! That has actually been on my personal wishlist for some time now, I’ve just never been successful at it 🙁 Hopefully I will soon, though!

  13. I vaguely recall you saying that you wanted to make fruit curd healthy. I saw a website that has a vegan recipe and maybe you can use that as a starting point?

  14. Thank you so much, that recipe looks like a winner! Now I can finally make lemon curd and maybe even a lemon meringue pie? Who knows… 😉

  15. Hey there!
    Check out my healthy coconut cream pie recipe here: Maybe it’ll give you ideas? Can’t to see when you make yours! I love your blog.

  16. Wow those look great! I love the use of coconut oil instead of butter, but I would still have to try and make them whole grain. I’ll definitely try these out, hopefully soon, thanks 🙂

  17. Can you please try to make a healthy high protein fondant!!!!!!!!

  18. Hi Amelia,
    I’ve made a few different protein fondants (vanilla, reduced fat vanilla and mint… so far…).
    All can be found in the “Recipes” section 🙂

  19. I tried whole grain croissants at D’Azeglio, *the* breakfast place in Bologna, so can testify it’s doable and tastes heavenly!

  20. These are a different texture from conventional cinnamon rolls but meet your nutrition criteria.. maybe you could play around with the recipe?

  21. Mila-
    That recipe sounds awesome, and I love how it’s yeast-free since I’m allergic. I need to make those ASAP! That site looks awesome too btw. Thanks Mila! 🙂

  22. Please do a protein pancake or waffle recipe!! Any and all flavors! Love your recipes!!

  23. I love all your recipes and I can’t wait to try them all.could you please try a chocolate toffee recipe 🙂

  24. Uh oh, toffee sounds hard D: I bet I can do it though, thanks for the request!

  25. I can completely relate to your sweets addiction! When I was younger, I loved to eat store bought cupcakes and cakes with buttercream at least once a day. Now, I can’t do that without gaining lbs, but I still have my sweet tooth 🙁 I recently started eating ‘clean’ and eliminated refined sugars and only consume organic desserts and sugars. Therefore, I AM IN LOVE WITH YOUR BLOG 🙂 I can’t wait to try some recipes to satisfy the sweet tooth that I still have! (although now its more controlled) My weakness are COOKIES. Have you tried making a sugar cookie recipe or a lemon sugar cookie recipe? What about plain/traditional chocolate chip cookies?
    Thanks for sharing your wonderful recipes!

  26. Thanks Melissa!
    You are like my long lost sister, I used to eat cookies, cakes and frosting ALLLL the time… and still can 😉 I’ve made chocolate chip cookies numerous times but I was never 100% satisfied with the results. It’s either too dry or too poofy or the flavor isn’t quite right. I could easily solve most of the problems by adding more oil but I want the recipe to be moderate in fat, unlike the storebought kinds that are 90% butter :/ You will laugh, but I attempted shortbread cookies once and it tasted like cornbread. How? I don’t know, but once I find the right recipe, I will post it ASAP!

  27. Sounds good! Thanks for the references 🙂 I plan on making some of your recipes tomorrow, can’t wait!

  28. I just recently healthified cinnamon rolls!! (I plan on healthifying them even more soon… but start slow, right?) I used sweet potato in the dough, which made them super fluffy and gooey and delicious.
    Also, I recently healthified creme brulee! 🙂 Super yum.

  29. Thanks for pointing me toward the recipe, and I CANNOT wait for the creme brulee recipe! I’ve never been a fan of it but my entire family begs me to make creme brulee just about every other month 😉
