Healthy Chocolate Cacao Nib Truffles {gluten-free, vegan}

Healthy Chocolate Cacao Nib Truffles {gluten-free, vegan} | www.brighteyedbaker.com

You guys know how much I love healthy excuses for eating chocolate, right? And if you read this blog regularly I’m hoping we totally agree that dark chocolate is less of a dessert than it is a healthy treat. SOOO, following that logic, we can totally mix it up with cocoa powder, cacao nibs, almonds, […]

Mixed Fruit & Oat Bars {GF, Dairy-Free}

November 3, 2016
Mixed Fruit & Oat Bars {gf, dairy-free}| www.brighteyedbaker.com

S’mores milkshake, marshmallow-stuffed cookies, gluten-free, dairy-free, pretty much guilt-free oat bars. It’s a natural cycle, right? I’ve officially devoted myself to being sweets-free this month, so I figured the blog should reflect that a little bit. I also mayyyy be trying to avoid thinking about dessert since there’s two huge bags of leftover Halloween candy […]

Honey Whole Wheat Dinner Rolls

March 28, 2015
Honey Whole Wheat Dinner Rolls -  soft, tender, and fluffy bread rolls with a hint of honeyed sweetness. | brighteyedbaker.com

Is it just me, or is there something about honey whole wheat rolls that seems so inherently perfect for springtime? I know I decided to call these “dinner rolls” and therefore I’m already contradicting myself right now, but I can’t help but think of weekend brunches complete with these rolls, honey butter, and lots of mimosas (plus […]

Whole Wheat Strawberry Oat Crumb Bars via @brighteyedbaker | www.brighteyedbaker.com

Somehow yesterday didn’t feel like much of a kill-me-now Monday, until the point where I sat down to put this post together and realized that all I wanted to do was be done with any sort of work for the day. That’s where comfy couches, cozy blankets, and glasses of wine come in ➝ to make the end […]

Banana Oat Muffins {GF, Dairy-Free}

March 18, 2015
Banana Oat Muffins - moist and light muffins that are GF & Dairy-Free | www.brighteyedbaker.com

I’m quite sure that no muffin withdrawals ever happen on this blog. If anything, I bake too many muffins, which is why I feel like I have to space them out with other recipes so things don’t get too predictable. But really, is there such a thing as too many muffins? Can you really get bored with one […]

Apricot Almond Granola {Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free}

February 18, 2015

Fact: The apricot-almond combo will forever be a winner. It makes some of the best scones I’ve ever had, a galette that tastes like heaven in your mouth, and now a KILLER granola. I don’t know how it took me so long to realize that these flavors belong in a granola recipe, but thank goodness I finally […]

Apple Pie Crumbles {Vegan}

February 12, 2015
Apple Pie Crumbles - all the flavor of the best apple pie, PLUS an irresistibly crunchy & sweet crumble topping - and only minutes of prep time! | www.brighteyedbaker.com

Is it normal to get spontaneous cravings for apple pie? Because for some unknown reason, it definitely happens to me, despite the fact that I pretty much never eat pie. The other thing I really never do is make pie. That obviously needs to change at some point – like how can I call myself […]

No-Bake Chocolate Sesame Seed Bars {Dairy-Free, GF}

No-Bake Chocolate Sesame Seed Bars -  sesame-flecked chocolate bars with a honey & tahini twist. {gluten-free}

 And just like that, we’re into 2015. Bang. Acting like the sensible person I pretend to be sometimes, I usually try to make January an “eat healthy” month, post healthy recipes, and in general act like I don’t crave chocolate chip cookies 24/7. Considering I have one – count ’em – ONE recipe ready to post that I’d actually […]

Healthy No-Bake 3-Layer Chocolate Espresso Bars {GF, Vegan}

November 21, 2014
Healthy No-Bake 3-Layer Chocolate Espresso Bars - dessert taste without the guilt!| www.brighteyedbaker.com

I ♡ no-bake recipes. Because really, as much as this blog is all about BAKING, it’s also about making treats that don’t involve baking but taste everrry bit as good – like pumpkin cheesecake shooters and apple cinnamon energy bars. That’s partly because these kinds of recipes are usually less involved (at least the way I tend do them!), partly because they’re […]

Warm Pear Crumble {for two} {Dairy-Free}

November 19, 2014
Warm Pear Crumble {for two} - a simple, small-batch crumble recipe with a spiced pear filling.

I kinda like the idea of a recipe made for two, don’t you? There’s one for you and one for someone else (or one for you and another for you; I’m not judging!) without a bunch of extras that have to stick around and keep you eating the same thing day after day. Now, don’t get me wrong, […]
