Banana Bread Overnight Oats

Banana Bread Batter Overnight Oats

In fact, the first overnight oats recipe I ever posted on the blog was back in 2015, this Almond Butter and Carob number. Throwing all notions of being a "cool" and … Continue reading Banana Bread Batter Overnight Oats


The “Ruby” – Vegan Tempeh Reuben Sandwich

Today I'm sharing a mouthwatering vegan sandwich that's bursting with flavor; marinated tempeh, creamy thousand island dressing, toasty bread, and tangy beet and cabbage sauerkraut.
