We are BIG carrot cake fans (especially Jill, it’s her favorite). We have been waiting to make a carrot cake for the blog, and Easter seemed like the perfect occasion. We wanted this carrot cake to be legit— dense yet fluffy, right amount of sweetness, with creamy, thick frosting. But we also wanted it to be “on brand”— a carrot cake that tastes amazing but leaves out gluten, dairy, and huge amounts of sugar. 

We searched for inspo across the Google machine, Pinterest, and some of our favorite bloggers (Minimalist Baker and Ambitious Kitchen, namely). We found good stuff, but some were too complicated, u...

There's not much better than the smell of warm cookies on a cold day... or any day, really. These chocolate chunk ginger cookies are that perfect, fresh baked cookie consistency-- slightly crispy on the edges, soft and chewy in the middle. They're incredibly simple to make, they just require a few clean ingredients, they're low in sugar, and they *happen* to be vegan and gluten free. EVERYONE WINS!

We've tried, sometimes succeeding and sometimes failing, in making vegan treats. When vegan and gluten free, sometimes ratio and consistency is hard, and almost always there's a flax egg, almond butter, or hard-to-find,...

Are you more of a festive fall person, like come October 1 you immediately put the pumpkin decor out and want to eat and drink anything and everything pumpkin or pumpkin spice flavored? Or are you more of a fall Scrooge who thinks that pumpkin everything is just plain annoying and it’s all over-played? We kinda' get you either way, cause we fall somewhere in the middle. We do think it’s fun to embrace some of the festive fall flavors and foods, because it’s a nice chance to change gears, shift our diet, and change things up, but all the "FALALALALA FAALLLL," can get annoying sometimes. Regardless of whether you a...

Summertime heat or not, we are always craving cold and creamy treats. Maybe it’s our love of ice cream or just a comforting way to satisfy our sweet tooth. Either way, you know Bare Nutrition has an obsession with discovering new, healthier ways to enjoy our favorite treats. 

Let me tell ya, we had some fun “recipe testing,” aka eating spoonfuls of this stuff while we “experimented” with perfecting these vegan cheesecake bars. It can be crucial to success to have desserts that are lower in sugar, contain real food ingredients, and have some sort of nutritional value when it come to maintaining a clean diet that...

We have to confess. We have a sweet tooth. After dinner every night, we just get the craving for a little treat. With that being said, if we treated ourselves to sugary, decadent dessert every night we might not be doing our bodies much good, so we love finding ways to satisfy our cravings without over indulging.

It's always helpful to have easy, better-for-you dessert options on hand for these moments (which, as we mentioned, is every night for us!). So, we threw together this super delicious, super easy freezer fudge! It has just three ingredients, with one additional optional ingredient. This fudge has zero sug...

If you’ve never had a blondie before, first off, we’re sorry to hear that. But basically, they’re the vanilla cousin of a brownie. SO GOOD. Of course, we had to find a way to have a delicious blondie without it being loaded with refined sugar, butter, or processed flour. So we made these.

We made this recipe not so incredibly healthy that it’s hardly dessert but healthy enough so that you can feel good eating it (and afterwards). These are a great option for a sweet treat without completely getting you off track or eating far off from your typical diet.

We personally will experience bloat and sometimes a flare in...

Yep. We made CHEESECAKE BARS and they taste AMAZING. What's even more amazing? These are a raw vegan treat with no added sugar. A creamy, satisfying, slightly sweet dessert that provides healthy fats and protein and completely satisfies cravings. Don't make these because they're healthy. Make them because they're delicious! 

It takes just about 15 minutes or less to throw together the "batter," then all you have to do it put 'em in the freezer and let them set. They will make about 10 -12 small cheesecake squares-- the perfect amount to keep on hand as an afternoon or evening treat for the week.

What really sets th...

Our grandma is arguably the best cook we know. She's a Sicilian immigrant and has a life-long repertoire of authentic, AMAZING Italian recipes and secret sauces. Many of her recipes aren't written down and have only been passed down by spending time in the kitchen and learning first-hand. One of those, are her famous lemon twist cookies.

They are melt in your mouth, soft, slightly sweet, and seriously addicting. When we come over to her house, we check the cookie jar hoping she made a big batch (yes! She actually kept the cookies in a cookie jar.).

So, a few years ago we sat down with her and had her tell...

    Chia pudding consists of chia seeds soaked in non-dairy milk then flavored and topped with whatever goodies your little heart desires.  It takes about 3 minutes to put together and is ready to eat just 10 minutes after soaking (although it is preferred to soak a couple of hours or overnight). The chia seeds expand and soften to create a nice gel-like texture that is so satisfying. You can also double or triple this recipe to make a larger batch that will keep well in the fridge for a couple of days. Packed with protein, vitamins, and amino acids, it is an awesome afternoon protein-pick-me-up, great for breakf...
