Beetroot Coconut Sugar Cookies

Beetroot Coconut Sugar Cookies Nutrition Stripped

I took a quick poll on the Nutrition Stripped Facebook page last week asking about your favorite holiday cookies that you’d like to see a healthy remake of and the largest request was about sugar cookies! Not surprising though since sugar cookies are THE classic holiday cookie especially around this time of year when cookie swaps and cookie decorating is a part time activity. Beetroot Coconut Sugar Cookies involve one of my favorite root vegetables, beets, coupled with gluten free flours, coconut oil, and some other goodies. And they can be made vegan friendly too, bonus.

Pear Apple & Pistachio Crumble

Pear Apple Pistachio Crumble Nutrition Stripped, cooking video
 Christmas is just around the corner and I’m sure you’ve also seen amazing and delicious pumpkin pies, fruit pies, or their variants pop up on food blogs and recipe blogs, I was also tempted to create my own.

As I mentioned in my “welcome to fall” recipe the Carrot Apple Blended Juice, I love using apples in the cooler months of the year.

Blondie Fig Fudge Squares

Blondie Fig Fudge Squares

I’m going to start out by saying, these are amazing. Blondie Fig Fudge Squares may very well become your new go-to recipe when you’re craving something sweet, yet don’t want to fuss with baking something- these require absolutely no cooking if you choose!

Mexican Chocolate Zoats

Mexican Chocolate Zoats | Nutrition Stripped, chocolate oatmeal, porridge, zucchini oatmeal

Zoats? You may be thinking “McKel, did you make a typo?”, I promise I didn’t. I’m only at it again sneaking veggies into your meals, this one being breakfast. Last month I shared a new favorite way of mine to incorporate zucchini into breakfast, in my Blue Morning Smoothie Bowl, today I’m making a delicious high protein porridge. If you’ve been following me on Instagram, I’ve been LOVING porridges for breakfast and you may have caught on to be mentioning zoats. They’re incredibly high in fiber, protein, nutrients, filling and taste amazing… anytime you can enjoy chocolate for breakfast is a win in my book.
