The familiar candy bar flavors turned into healthy granola! Crunchy, lightly sweetened & full of wholesome ingredients.

Buttermilk Banana Pancakes with Coconut Maple Syrup

I discovered the secret to the perfect pancakes: BUTTERMILK! I know, I’m super slow sometimes. People have been making buttermilk pancakes forever and I’m just now jumping on that train. In my defense, I have a favorite pancake recipe…and I almost never have buttermilk in my refrigerator. That? Is changing as of right now....

Bakery Style Coconut Macaroons

I’ve finally done it: I found the perfect Coconut Macaroon recipe! I was only 22 when I went to Carmel for the first time. Mel and I went for his 39th birthday. We were dating (but soon to be engaged). The second I stepped foot on Ocean Avenue I was in love. Carmel is one...

Homemade Coconut Oreos

I certainly have an obsession with homemade Oreos. Especially when they’re golden. This time I made a version that not even Oreo makes: Homemade Coconut Oreos! Spring break is fiiiiiinally over. They get a week AND the day after Easter, which is totally overkill. Even though last week was a breeze since we were...

Chocolate Coconut Cake Roll

Oops… I did it again. I made another cake roll. This one is full of chocolate and coconut. That’s just how I roll. Last weekend I had the perfect Easter recipe planned and ready to make. It was a riff on these cupcakes combined with these muffins. It failed. TWICE. As I sat there...

Coconut Brookies

Coconut Brookies

Sometimes I want to change my name to Brooke, because then I could have the best dessert ever named after me: Brookies. They’re part brownie, part cookie, and all super decadent. Oh, I’m sorry. Your keyboard is full of drool now, isn’t it? If only computer screens were scratch and sniff. Better yet…if only computers...
