Almond Brownies

August 13, 2017

al•mond brown•ies: (n) a square of nutty, chocolatey goodness, where one bite takes you to a world of crunchy, fudgey, gluten free heaven, leaving you wanting more. In other words, these are not your average brownies.

First of all, let’s get a couple things straight. I’ve raved over so so so many chocolate flavor pairings before (y’all know my unconditional love for chocolate), namely peanut butter and chocolate. Oh, and we can’t forget about the raspberry/chocolate and pistachio/chocolate combos. But almonds and chocolate? Ho-ly crud. You’d expect it to taste similar to the peanut butter and chocolate, but the natural flavor and crunch from the almonds with the smooth, chewy texture of the brownie is something entirely different. For real! I can’t explain it… they’re just sooooo good! Continue Reading

Chocolate Chia Pudding (in a mason jar!)

August 9, 2017

Say hello to thick, chocolatey, chia pudding heaven! Yeahhhh, baby. Ever since I first read Cookie and Kate’s chia pudding recipe, I knew it was time for me to jump on the chia pudding trend. As usual, I’m late. They’ve been popular in the food/health world for quite a while, and since it’s such an easy and delicious recipe to make, I’m kind of surprised that I’m only now sharing this chocolate chia pudding recipe on the blog!

Thing is, I know most people out there enjoy simple, easy recipes that can be made in a flash. This chocolate chia pudding is made directly in a mason jar, so you can prepare the pudding, chill it in the fridge and let it do it’s chia magic, then take it out the next morning and add toppings! Seriously, when they say “under 5 minutes” I literally mean under 5 minutes. And if it’s a lazy Sunday morning, treat yourself by pouring the pudding into a bowl and topping it (so #fancy and #instagrammable). Continue Reading

5 Ingredient Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies

5 ingredient chocolate peanut butter cookies - My Southern Sweet Tooth

Treat yo’ self is a motto that I live by on a daily basis, no joke. Chances are, if my sweet tooth cravings kick in, I’m gonna tell myself, “hey, just treat yo’ self!” This girl has no self control. The thing is, since I’m always craving sweets, somehow I gotta make sure I’m not eating too much sugar, right?

That’s where these 5 ingredient (!!!) chocolate peanut butter cookies come into play.

I’ve realized that even though chocolate and peanut butter are my all-time favorite food combos, I’ve only really done one post featuring them! These choc pb cookies are healthy. Crunchy. Chocolate-and-peanut-butter-y. All they y’s. Best of all, they’re only 5 ingredients! Actually, they’re technically six ingredients, but salt doesn’t count. Peanut butter, cocoa, an egg, honey, baking powder, and salt, then bake and eat. Ready to be devoured in a couple minutes’ time. You know what that means? MORE SWEETS FOR ME.

I have a problem. And I’m willing to admit it, because heyyy girl, TREAT YO SELF! Continue Reading

Coconut Lime Granola Muffins

Coconut Lime Granola Muffins - My Southern Sweet Tooth

You guys… this is by far one of the most genius recipes I’ve come up with. Just imagine: key lime pie, crunchy granola, and a sweet, fluffy muffin. That’s basically what these coconut lime granola muffins are: a key-lime pie, transformed into muffin form, topped with crunchy coconut granola and packed with summery, citrusy flavors.Best part? They’re health-ified and gluten free.

They can be a quick, grab-and-go breakfast, afternoon snack, or even dessert! Hey, I’d even eat them for dinner. Not kidding, these are that good.

Oh! And I’m bringing back the good ol’ recipe videos (woo-hoo!) I’m really really trying to be consistent with these, seriously. Even though I haven’t even attempted to make another one since my carrot cake bread post back in April, one of my goals this summer was to make more videos. Summer’s over half way over and this is the first one I’ve made😂 It’s all about the baby steps, I guess. Enjoy!

If so, tell me ASAP, because your girl seriously wants to know.
