I've always had a sweet tooth. When I was a kid, my mom was a stickler for healthy eating, so I had to hide my Skittles. Now I try to find healthy-ish ways to satisfy my sugar cravings. This slightly indulgent granola with rich cacao nibs is my morning go-to: I pile it on my vanilla-infused Brown Rice Porridge, along with fruit and a dollop of jam.

My Crispy Rice Salad, full of sweet ginger and other fresh Asian flavors, also makes a hearty brunch.

And you might not know it from their crusty exterior, but my Malva Pudding Cakes are ooey-gooey perfection. It’s close, but I’d choose them over Skittles almost any day.
