Homemade Butterscotch Chips: Easy, Dairy-Free Chunks for Recipes

originally from:

This post is part one of this month’s Kids Can Cook section by the Hatfields. Katherine and her “mama”, Sarah, love making these homemade dairy-free butterscotch chips. Butterscotch is one of our favorite flavors. Some butterscotch lollipops and hard candies are dairy-free, but it is difficult to find dairy-free butterscotch chips. Katherine found some homemade butterscotch chips recipes […]

Ultimate flourless brownies for two + Cookbook news!

originally from:


Several months ago, my publishing team let me know about an exciting idea that Indigo had proposed for my two cookbooks. They’ve been so thrilled with your response to the books (as have I!) that they’ve created a special-edition OSG boxed set, available just before the holiday season kicks off. When they asked me I was like, hmm…let me think about it….YES!! Lol.

Shortly after, the mock-up arrived on my doorstep. It was like Christmas morning!


This one above is just the mock-up version…the pages are literally glued to the box by hand. The real thing will look even better, but I wanted to give you an idea. It makes such a gorgeous gift!

To celebrate, Indigo is having a pre-order SALE on the boxed set this week! It’s 40% off (until Oct. 22nd), and also qualifies for free shipping within Canada.

To keep this celebration going with FOOD (cuz you know that’s what we do), I’m happy to share today’s recipe— a rendition of my Ultimate Flourless Brownies with Magic No-Cook Caramel from Oh She Glows Every Day. I’ve had a lot of requests for one- or two-serving desserts, and many of you have told me that you love these brownies. Soooooo…it seemed like a no-brainer to start with this dessert. The brownies are vegan, grain-free, and oil-free, and they turn out wonderfully chewy, dense, and chocolaty. You can also make them soy-free simply by using a soy-free chocolate, such as Enjoy Life brand.

If you’re planning a quiet Halloween in with a pal, it would be a wonderful option. Heck, if you’re planning a wild night out, just make this earlier in the day. Actually, make them now….yes, make them right this second.




You can make one big brownie as I’ve done here using a 4-inch ramekin, or you can use two smaller 3-inch ramekins. A cupcake tin (with liners) also works! If you’re going to make smaller portions, I recommend baking them for less time as they’ll bake much faster.







Ultimate Flourless Brownies for Two
Vegan, gluten-free, grain-free

This two-serving brownie is fudgy and dense with a firm edge, and thanks to the almond butter base, there isn’t a stitch of flour! The nuttiness of the almonds and chopped dark chocolate enhance its rich chocolate flavour. This is a fantastic dessert when you want a decadent treat without being taunted by a pan of leftover brownies in the kitchen. (But if you do, see the full-sized brownie and caramel recipes in my second cookbook, Oh She Glows Every Day.)

Prep Time

Total Time
38 Minutes

For the brownies:1 1/2 teaspoons (4 g) ground flax1 tablespoon (15 mL) water1/4 teaspoon (1 mL) fine sea saltScant 1/8 teaspoon (0.5 mL) baking soda1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon (20 mL) pure maple syrup1/2 teaspoon (2.5 mL) pure vanilla extract2 teaspoons (5 g) arrowroot starch2 tablespoons plus 2 teaspoons (17 g) unsweetened cocoa powder2 tablespoons (28 g) natural cane sugar1/4 cup (60 mL) natural smooth almond butter2 tablespoons (20 g) chopped dark chocolate or choc. chipsFor the Magic No-Cook Caramel:1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon (20 mL) coconut oil, melted2 tablespoons (30 mL) pure maple syrup1 tablespoon (15 mL) raw cashew butter1 teaspoon (5 mL) coconut nectar or pure maple syrup*A good pinch of fine sea salt

Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C) and place the oven rack in the middle position. Lightly grease a 4-inch ramekin (or two small, 3-inch ramekins) with oil. In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together the ground flax and water. Let it sit for a couple of minutes. To the flax mixture, add the salt, baking soda, maple syrup, vanilla, and arrowroot starch; whisk vigorously until smooth. Add the cocoa powder and sugar; stir with a spoon until combined. The batter will be very thick. Stir in the almond butter and chopped chocolate until thoroughly combined. Mix the dough for 30 to 60 seconds, until you can’t see any “ribbons” of almond butter in the dough. Scoop the dough into the prepared ramekin(s). Press down on the dough with your fingers until even and smooth. Place the ramekin(s) directly onto the rack, and bake for about 22 to 25 minutes, until the brownie has risen nicely, but is still soft to the touch. When it’s ready, the middle will still look a bit underdone. A toothpick inserted into the middle won’t come out clean. Shortly after removing from the oven, the middle will sink, but this is all normal. Pinky swear! Place the ramekin(s) on a cooling rack for about 25 to 30 minutes. Meanwhile, prepare the Magic No-Cook Caramel Sauce. Add all of the caramel sauce ingredients into a mini food processor, and process until smooth. Or you can simply add it to a small bowl and beat it with an electric mixer. Transfer to a small jar. You can serve the brownie in the ramekin, or you can slide a knife around the edge and carefully pop it onto a plate. Serve it with a scoop of ice cream (totally optional), a drizzle of caramel sauce, and a small pinch of coarse sea salt. I like to scatter on some toasted walnuts for a little crunch, too. Any leftover brownie (I doubt you’ll have any, though!) can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for a few days. You can also wrap the cooled brownie individually in tin foil and place it into an airtight container or bag in the freezer for 3 to 4 weeks. If you have leftover caramel sauce, it’ll keep in an airtight container in the fridge for a week or so.


* The coconut nectar has a slightly tangy flavour which is why it works well in this caramel sauce, but if you don’t have any on hand feel free to use maple syrup in its place. It’ll work just fine!

The caramel sauce makes 1/4 cup (60 mL). If you don’t want that much, you can cut the recipe in half and whisk everything by hand in a small bowl.


As always, you can find this recipe in The Oh She Glows Recipe App (on iOS and Android). Happy baking!

Gluten Free Pizza Strata Recipe

originally from:

Ever had strata? It’s kind of like lasagna, but with bread as the main component instead of pasta. Some are layered (hence the name) but others are simply mixed together in a casserole style. I prefer the casserole style because it’s

When I decided to do a post on dairy-free pumpkin spice products, I thought I would have about 10 items. But I ended up with so many that I simply had to stop at 33 and ordinary “pumpkin” products and things like baking mixes didn’t make the list. Yes, these are all pumpkin spice goodies, […]

Prioritise the ‘BIG’ lifts!

originally from:


Whether training for fat loss, muscle gain, fitness or performance, you can’t go too far wrong by spending the majority of your time utilising the ‘biggest bang for your buck movements.’ 

These are known as compound lifts, and will always require more than one joint articulation, therefore recruiting more muscle mass, and overall effort. 

Examples include, but are not limited to, Squats, Deadlifts, Bench Presses, Shoulder Presses, Cleans, Rowing Movements, Dips, Press Ups, (typically the most exercises that utilise a barbell or a dumbbell) and all of their variations.

We also have what we refer to as ‘isolation’ exercises, where only one joint is required to move to perform the exercise, and this will isolate a particular muscle. This is fine for things like injury rehab, or for somebody trying to bring up a specific muscle group.

You’d be doing your self a huge disservice if you were relying solely on isolation exercises, especially if your goals include fat loss, muscle gain, fitness or performance.

The reason for this is that you will burn far more calories performing Compound lifts vs Isolation lifts, because of the amount of muscle recruited, and the effort required.
You will, therefore, stimulate more muscle mass by using compound lifts vs isolation, which is optimal for building muscle.

For fitness, again, the compound lifts will be a better choice here. Because of the amount of muscle recruited, your heart will be working harder, and you will elevate your heart rate higher than performing isolation exercises.

Product Review: Milky Way Protein Bar

originally from:


We love protein bars here at Discount Supplements and here we are checking out the new Milky Way protein bar that follows on from the hugely popular Mars and Snickers protein bars.

With just 183 calories per bar, 19.2g of protein and that plenty of that classic Milky Way taste these bars look like they’re going to put smiles on a fair few faces!

Taste & Texture

So, do these bars have that classic Milky Way taste? Well, it turns out they sure do! These are undoubtedly Milky Way protein bars.

As you bite into the bar, the milky chocolate coating begins the experience shortly before the chocolatey/vanilla Milky Way flavours start to come through…

Although these are chewier than the regular bar (due to the ingredients needed to make the bar high in protein) they’re still pretty easy to eat and leave a pleasant aftertaste too. As Milky Way fans, we’re pretty happy with the result here.

Ingredients & Macros

Thanks to the inclusion of a whole host of milk-based ingredients (plus a few others) the protein content of this bar manages to come in at just over 19g of protein, 19.2g to be precise – not bad at all.

Carbohydrate wise we have 18.6g per bar, 10.1g of which are sugars…for a bar that regains a lot of the classic Milky Way chocolate bar taste this is a decent accomplishment.

Product Highlights

2g protein
Classic Milky Way taste
Just 10.1g of sugar per bar
Perfect for an on the go protein treats

Final Thought

If you’re looking for a protein bar that also serves as a bit of a tasty treat too, then look no further than the Milky Way chocolate bar! The ideal solution for those who need a little more protein in their diet and want a childhood classic chocolatey experience at the same time.
