My kitchen is in full Holiday mode! This time of year brings so much inspiration for me in the kitchen. I love playing with the different flavors of traditional holiday treats and making them into healthy Holiday options. These yummy little bites are fantastic for the Holidays. The ice cream is a creamy coconut flavor with a hint of vanilla wrapped in toasted coconut. They are a... read more
This recipe is going to be a hit for children, husbands and special occasions. The flavors and density of this recipe has a really cozy feeling to it. I think this recipe would be perfect for a Holiday morning breakfast or brunch. Of course, this recipe could be used as a snack as well but here are some ideas for breakfast for these yummy little bites: The great thing about serving these for a... read more
These caramels have a twist. They are as delicious, sweet and simple as my original Salted Caramel recipe but have a pumpkin spice twist. These caramels are an awesome alternative to the usual high sugar, corn syrup, processed, chemical laden, store-bought caramels. This recipe is all natural and only uses naturally derived sugar. This is a great recipe for the Holiday Season! This recipe is... read more
Cranberry Peppermint Chocolate say Holiday Season to me! These simple flavors go beautifully together. Below I created a raw vegan version of a Cranberry Peppermint Chocolate Bark. You can make this recipe sugar free by using liquid stevia in place of maple syrup. A little goes a long way with this recipe so it is nice to have a container in your freezer cut into small pieces for a quick-to-grab... read more
For the last few years here on the DAMY Health blog I have done at least a month long Holiday Recipe Countdown. This year I took to my Facebook page and instagram to ask for some ideas of what you would like to see on the blog this year. I love taking your favorite meal, treats, snacks and turning them into a healthy recipe but this year the top picks were (so far): Nanaimo Bars Sugar Cookies... read more
This recipe is something that will be in my refrigerator in the Fall season from now on. It is so much better than apple sauce and regular apple butter. It is pure, natural and so easy to make. This spiced apple pumpkin butter is perfect as a spread (on muffins or toast), stirred into oatmeal or quinoa for breakfast, yummy on its own warmed up like a hot pudding or as a dip for fruit, proteins... read more
This recipe is sweet, oooey, gooey and delicious. It embodies the rich flavors of Fall with the sweet spin of a sugar cookie crust. A little square of this recipe goes a long way. The fresh tartness of the apples mixed with the sweet density of the caramel topped off with the sugar cookie crust is a match made in heaven. It seems like we all have an abundance of apples this time of year so I... read more
This recipe is good. A little goes a long way with this recipe. This is the perfect fix for a sweet craving without going overboard. A small slice with a cup of tea and you will be satisfied. The flavors of peanut butter and silky caramel go perfectly together.

With the pumpkin being the base you will feel full from the fiber plus receive the added benefits of vitamins and nutrients. The healthy fats from the nut butter will keep you satisfied and your cravings at bay. This recipe is great for a dessert or... read more
I swear I make meals for my family everyday I am just the worst at taking photos of them. I also tend to find my meals boring because I forget that just because I have eaten them for years doesn’t mean other people have. I’m sincerely trying to get better at including my savory dishes into the blog more. I wanted to start with this recipe that my husband and I love. Here in... read more
This recipe came together so smoothly and simply. My husband absolutely loved it. If you have peanut butter fans in your house this recipe is a sure win. For this recipe I used individual single serving rectangular silicone moulds. You can use these as well or you can use a small spring-form pan, a muffin tin or any small baking dish you wish. If you are going to make one cheesecake you want to... read more
This recipe is Fall perfection. Add in that it is no-bake, raw and made with whole, natural ingredients and you have a dessert made in heaven. I love making vegan cheesecakes and especially raw/vegan cheesecakes because A- I love cheesecake and B- I try to avoid dairy 99% of the time. Around 7 years ago I started studying to become a Holistic Nutritionist and was really taken back by the... read more
This recipe is surprisingly simple and delicious. I’m shocked at how much I love this recipe. I may or may not have had it for breakfast this morning. (Shhh… don’t tell) I love taking classic favorite treats and giving them the healthy, whole foods spin. This is my “Healthy Rebel” side coming out. I have done quite a few inspired dupes that have turned out awesome... read more
This recipe is a super delicious, super clean treat option. This recipe was sent to me by Amy Elaine (shout out for this awesome idea!). She found this delicious looking recipe and wanted me to give it the ‘DAMY’ spin. I turned this recipe into a whole ingredient, vegan, high fiber dessert using no added sugar, chemicals or artificial colors. It turned out awesome. This recipe is a... read more
I can’t remember the last time I had an actual cooked cinnamon bun made from flour. With all the cinnamon bun flavored creations I’ve made over the years I just never feel the urge to turn to the baked/traditional option. I have made Skinny Cinnamon Bun Cheesecake Squares, Raw Cinnamon Buns and Cinnamon Bun Cookies. These cover all the bases for my cinnamon bun cravings. And when... read more
I am a person that very rarely gets sick. When I do get sick or I’m beginning to get sick I have an extremely hard time recognizing the feeling. Instead of slowing down and taking care of myself (like I advise all of my DAMY Health community members) I start to almost panic and get anxious. It always takes someone in my life to suggest that I’m just getting sick and that I need to... read more
If you follow my blog regularly you will know that I love mini desserts. So when creating my Bananas Foster Warm Bread Pudding I couldn’t help but envision it as adorable little pies. The result was fantastic. These mini pies have a crunchy yet soft crust that is naturally sweet with a touch of salt and the filling is warm, perfectly caramelized bananas. Add a dollop of coconut whipped... read more
I have done a few different variations of ginger snaps or ginger-style cookies in the past but I have always wanted to do a more traditional style. With Thanksgiving coming up here in Canada this weekend I wanted to create cookies with Fall spices. These cookies are simple to make and are truly delicious. If you are vegan or not, gluten free or not it really doesn’t matter these cookies... read more
I have a surprise for you. You can make banana bread with chickpeas. Boom, mind blown. And… it is unreal delicious. This recipe could be used for breakfast, lunch, dinner, a snack and of course a dessert. This banana bread recipe is fantastic on its own and great with the chocolate frosting. Using chickpeas as the base for the banana bread and pumpkin as the base for the chocolate frosting... read more
Any time I can I enjoy making personal portioned desserts over large desserts. This is for a couple different reasons. One – I think they are pretty and cute and really impressive on a plate. Two – Coming from being an overeater without knowing boundaries having a specific pre-portioned dessert is perfect for me. I think this is a really great way to re-train your brain when working... read more
