This blackberry and fig pistachio oat crumble is about as simple and basic as they come, and though it’s vegan and gluten-free it’s just as delicious as you can expect any summer crisp or crumble to be.

Recipe for Dark Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins (GF) with Coconut, Brown Rice, and Buckwheat Flour - Elle Republic

Dark Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins (GF)

Chocolate chip banana muffins, berry-packed yogurt muffins and classic blueberry muffins are all things that bring me back to my early 20s when I literally lived on muffins. Totally addicted, I ate them almost every day. Monday to Friday that is. Okay, maybe it wasn’t just because I had a thing for muffins… it was, […]

Gluten-Free Chocolate Zucchini Bread

Chocolate Zucchini Bread (Gluten-Free)

Zucchini bread is one of those things I’ve never understood. Carrot cake on the other hand, I can wrap my head around. Mind you, I have some very overly sweet childhood memories of carrot cake slathered in a very thick layer of icing. In contrast, zucchini bread sounds “healthy”. And yes, it is. But I’m […]

Berry Oat Tart (Gluten-Free)

Berry Oat Tart (GF)

The inspiration for this berry oat tart comes from my all-time favorite dessert — a honey rhubarb tart. I loved so much, that I had the urge to bake another tart — this time a little different…one without a crumble and with lots of fresh berries. I simply love the combination of oats, almond, vanilla, […]

gluten-free roasted almond butter bread with banana, cacao nibs and unsweetened flaked coconut

Roasted Almond Butter Bread (Gluten-Free)

My new favorite bread. A grain-free gluten-free roasted almond butter bread with banana, cacao nibs and unsweetened flaked coconut. First of all, what I think makes it so special is the homemade roasted almond butter. Which by the way, is super easy to make yourself. Not only is homemade almond butter cheaper than the store-bought […]

Kale Ribollita with Lamb Merguez Sausage and Smoked Bacon

Kale Ribollita with Merguez

If you ask anyone what is a typical Tuscan dish that’s hearty, filling and perfect for a cold winter’s night, you’ll likely get the answer “a traditional Ribollita”, otherwise known as a rustic Tuscan vegetable stew. It’s loaded with dark greens, lots of beans, vegetables and thickened with day-old bread. In my version, which isn’t […]

Vegetarian Gluten-free Peanut Coconut Noodles

Peanut Coconut Noodles

This recipe is inspired by my friend Anna and is based on something she served up for a group of us while hosting her first annual Feel Good Move Pilates retreat this past summer. Just imagine… a creamy coconut Thai red curry sauce clinging to Asian style noodles with crunchy carrots and sweet red pepper, […]
