Fig Brownie Bites

This probably goes without saying, but it’s incredibly difficult to do anything with a newborn in the house. I was also incredibly naive to think that I could get anything done while he is sleeping. Why? Because I can only do things that don’t make NOISE. Cooking… makes noise. Baking… makes noise. Sweeping up the back yard……

Berry Chocolate Pudding Tart

My Memorial Day weekend was filled with bags of clothing and furniture and box cutters. Everyone’s favorite kind of weekend activity : Moving! We didn’t move far but that doesn’t change the fact that we had to move ALL THE THINGS.  My poor 8 1/2 month pregnant body was definitely feeling the burn.  Fortunately, some…

Cashew Butter Brownies

I’ve had a rough couple of weeks in the “health” department. I was nursing a sore throat, hoping to rest it off and avoid a full-blown cold. Did it work? Well… for a weekend. Then I started the following week with eyes watering, nose running, and sneezing shenanigans. Not cool. After I mostly recovered, my…

Chocolate PB Shake

This one is a surefire craving killer. Everyone knows that chocolate and peanut butter are the perfect combo. And while most people will likely be reaching for those leftover Reese’s Easter Eggs this week, YOU don’t have to! In fact, take the next 30 seconds to walk over to your Easter candy stash, pick it up, and…

Carrot Cake with Maple Date Buttercream

If you look under the “sweets” tab in my recipe page, you won’t find too many decadent or overly indulgent treats. They tend to be easy and natural alternatives to cookies or brownies and raw desserts or fruit-sweetened bars; basically the kind of stuff you would expect from a gluten-free, dairy-free blog. These little cakes…

Maple Orange Almond Cake

  Your weekly dose of yummy, healthy treats is here! When I tasted this cake, the first words out of my mouth were “Oh My God.” It’s delicious and decadent and also incredible user-friendly. I have this thing for simple baking recipes. I don’t like having to be super exact or go out and buy a…

Fudge Drizzle Cookies

Do you guys remember those Keebler Elves commercials with the tree cookie factory that made the ‘fudge stripe’ cookies and the Rainbow ones with the REAL M&M’s in them?! Man, that’s a throwback to my childhood tv days for sure. The only thing I liked more than TV was probably those cookies. The double stuffed…

Apple Crisp Skillet

Greetings from the great state of Idaho. I’m up here visiting family and enjoying a bit of ACTUAL fall weather. Rain, cold, wind, colorful leaves, etc. I packed all my warmest sweaters, vests, flannels, and boots. Still leggings though, always leggings. #teamspandex It’s actually pretty comical to plop me down in the middle of cold weather….

Chocolate Chia Pudding

Sometimes I get requests for recipes that I wouldn’t typically make for myself. Chia pudding is one of those things. I realize that chia is widely considered a “superfood” and hailed as an excellent source of healthy fats and energy. BUT… If you know anything about my nutritional journey, you know that I have some digestive issues….

Chocolate Chip Sweet Potato Bars

This is the result of complete recipe improvisation. I was scanning an old bread recipe and didn’t have the necessary ingredients on hand, so I swapped here, added there. The result was pretty incredible. I’m so glad that it was for a client because my husband and I were ready to consume the entire pan….

Chunky Monkey Cookies

Our new pup is amazing. So obviously all blog posts need to begin with a picture of him. I mean, seriously… So, my neighbor has a huge banana tree in his front yard and it’s chock full of ripe bananas. I have no clue why they are not taking advantage of the free food on their…

Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

I love my Sugarless Banana Bread. But sometimes you want a little sugar. Incorporating chocolate chips into this recipe is a great way to indulge while keeping it CLEAN! Chocolate Banana Bread Muffins 4 ripe bananas, mashed 4 eggs 1/4 c. coconut flour 1/2 c. almond butter (sub any other nut/seed butter) 4 Tbsp. coconut oil 1…
