01 Oct Peanut Butter Twix Bars (Grain-Free + Vegan)

Peanut Butter Twix Bars (Grain-Free + Vegan)   You guys. I did a thing. I made healthy Twix bars.   I am not even kidding. Last week I asked you guys what Halloween candy you wanted me to give a healthy make-over, and Twix won by a long shot. Excited by the prospect of making an unhealthy Halloween treat actually good for you, I immediately got baking. What I came up with was not only healthier than the original Twix, but tasted wayyyy better:   A crispy, shortbread-like cookie crust covered in a deliciously rich, crunchy peanut butter coconut sugar caramel, slathered...

10 Jul Almond Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies (Paleo+Vegan)

Almond Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies (Paleo+Vegan!)   In case you can’t tell, I have an extreme love of chocolate chip cookies. They’ve gotta be crispy and crunchy on the outside, and warm and gooey on the inside🤤 These are alllll that and more, because they’re also free of eggs, dairy, gluten, grains, AND refined sugar.     I love eggs, so most of my recipes contain eggs. However, so many of my friends are vegan, so I thought it'd be fun to create a classic treat that was vegan-friendly. Our egg substitute here is flax meal! Though it sounds like...

Ooey Gooey Tigernut Cookies (AIP, Nut-Free, Egg-Free)   Good morning, friends! Today I have a really awesome recipe for you. I have been getting lots of requests lately for more AIP treat recipes, so I created the ULTIMATE AIP cookie recipe!   The texture of these cookies is really, insanely yummy.

20 Dec Mexican Wedding Cookies

Mexican Wedding Cookies   There are only five days left until Christmas Eve and Hanukkah! I cannot believe it. I am now on winter break and am having the time of my life baking cookies all day. The first cookies I baked on break were these Mexican Wedding Cookies, also known as Russian Tea Cakes or Snowball Cookies. They are little bites of powdered sugar, and that’s it. No, haha, I’m kidding! Though they may look like little balls of sugar, there is so much more inside {Waitress reference ;) And listen to this song while you...

12 Jun Melt-In-Your-Mouth Chocolate Chip Cookies

Melt-In-Your-Mouth Chocolate Chip Cookies   I have searched high and low, far and wide, for the perfect chocolate chip cookie recipe. It had to be crispy and caramelized on the outside, yet soft on the inside. It had to be buttery and not too sweet, with ooey, gooey chocolate chips melted inside. Sounds like a tall order, right? Well, I MADE THE PERFECT COOKIE! And I think you should make it too.   There are two ingredients in particular which make these cookies so incredible: ghee and maple sugar.   If you’ve never used ghee in baked goods, you’re seriously missing...

05 May Kumquat-Chocolate Scones

Kumquat-Chocolate Scones     Last year, we planted a small kumquat tree in our backyard. Boy oh boy, did it pay off! Now, our tree is adorned with bright, beautiful kumquat fruits! I had never baked with kumquats before this recipe. They are a lot like an orange in flavor, but more tart! And, of course, much smaller in size. To separate the kumquat pulp from the juice, I added one extra step to the process: blending all the wet ingredients together, and pressing it through a fine mesh sieve. This step will only add a few extra minutes...
