Mother Lode Cookies

I’ve been off social media for three weeks! I don’t care how lame this sounds but it’s honestly been a struggle at times. I’d have a quiet moment or standing in line and I’d literally get fidgity with my hands. Like I needed something to do or redirect my attention. How intense is that? I…

Butternut Avocado Toast

Man I love toast. Well, that’s not true. What I really love is toppings. Toast is a vehicle for delicious toppings like eggs, avocado, butter, jelly, nut butter, etc… Regular ol’ gluten-free bread toast was definitely my JAM during pregnancy. I loved my Canyon Bakehouse slices with TONS of Kerrygold butter on top. Seriously. ALL…

Chai Spiced Sweet Potato Porridge

Wanna hear about my really exciting weekend? Well, I spent it cleaning my floors and purging my closet while watching episodes of Dawson’s Creek on repeat. Oh and don’t forget my new vocation as baby servant. But seriously, with the closet. I’m making my first attempt at a minimal wardrobe. I managed to rid myself of 2…

Pumpkin Spice Banana Bread

It’s my belief that anytime bananas reach this level of ripeness, they are automatically nominated for a banana bread baking sesh. AMIRIGHT? I have a plethora of banana bread recipes on this blog yet still felt compelled to create a new iteration of this classic favorite. Since it’s officially AUTUMN this week, I decided to jump on…

Grain-Free Chocolate Granola

Gonna make this post short and SWEET! Want a chocolatey treat without all the sugar? This grain-free, paleo-friendly granola will certainly do the trick. Eat it with your favorite yogurt or on top of a smoothie bowl! Grain-Free Chocolate Granola 1 1/2 c. walnuts 1 1/2 c. coconut flakes (unsweetened) 1/2 c. macadamia nuts 1/4 c….

Cranberry Spice Breakfast Bread

I love baking with cashew flour. It’s super moist and a great blank canvas for any flavor you’re desiring! Baking with almond butter, sunflower seed butter, and peanut butter will always limit your flavor profiles to what pairs well with those particular nuts. Cashew is very bland and neutral which allows for a little more…

Healing Banana Pancakes

If you haven’t jumped on the banana pancake train, you’re late. Seriously, just mash some banana with some egg and nut butter and you have FANTASTIC healthy pancakes! It’s so easy! This week, I decided to step up my banana pancake strategy by adding in some gut and joint healing COLLAGEN. Collagen is having its…

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…

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…

Salsa Verde Shrimp Tacos

These tortillas. I can’t stop. I’ve literally been putting all my foods in a tortilla. Kind of like that guy that indiscriminately puts ketchup on his food. Eggs, potatoes, steak, bagels… Ketchup 4 Life Guy. I’m that guy… just with paleo tortillas. One of their more shining qualities is durability which is hard to find in a…
