For your sweet tooth! Many recipes avoid dairy, wheat, and sugar – but you won’t miss any of those ingredients!

Pear Blackberry Muffins

The batter recipe from “Run Fast. Cook Fast. Eat Slow.” is so versatile; after using it for the Pumpkin Spice Muffins, I decided to use it as a base for a new variety that leveraged pears, another wonderful fall fruit. I had a vision in my mind of how wonderful […]

 

Pumpkin Spice Muffins

It’s October, and that means Pumpkin Spice everything! I was craving something sweet and spicy, and did a little happy dance when I saw a recipe for Pumpkin Spice Superhero Muffins in my favorite cookbook “Run Fast. Cook Fast. Eat Slow“. I made a few changes to keep these yummy […]

 

Mango Bread

This bread is light and ever-so-slightly sweet from the natural flavor of ripe mangoes. All you really need is a blender and a loaf plan to make this dairy-free and wheat-free bread. It’s simple and perfect when paired with a cup of steaming hot black coffee. Enjoy!  

 

Cinnamon Coffee Cake (Paleo)

Another winning Paleo offering based on a recipe from “The Gluten-Free Almond Flour Cookbook” by Elana Amsterdam. For the past few years, I’ve moved away from sweetening my coffee; instead, I sprinkle cinnamon over the top of a steaming mug of black coffee in the morning. Cinnamon has a sweet […]

 

Apricot Bars

We’re constantly on the lookout for better snack options. My husband and I both enjoy something a bit sweet mid-afternoon or after dinner. Since realizing that processed sugar upsets my stomach and drains my husband of his energy, we’ve opted for natural sweeteners like date past and applesauce, with the […]

 

Maple Walnut Vegan Scones

I’m obsessed with baking scones that I can eat – that means no dairy or wheat! My desire for scones comes from years of walking into coffee shops and having to pass up all the buttery goods filling their bakery cases. These Maple Walnut Vegan Scones are my latest victory. […]

 

Apricot Ginger Scones (Dairy-Free)

We absolutely love these scones, which I adapted from a traditional (e.g. included wheat, butter, and sugar) scone recipe in “Bi-Rite Market’s Eat Good Food“. Our entire house smelled divine while they were baking, as the scent of fresh ginger and orange zest wafted from the oven. The scones are […]

 

Spiced Paleo Zucchini Bread

All summer, our local farmer’s basket has included beautiful green and yellow squash, gifting us with ample opportunities to create new preparations. As we move into fall, I’m seeking out more ways to incorporate cinnamon, cardamom, nutmeg, and cloves into my baking – to me, these best represent the aromas […]

 

Strawberry Nutella Scones (Vegan, Paleo)

I’m particularly pleased with this recipe. I was able to utilize hazelnut pulp (from homemade hazelnut milk) and create an original recipe that tasted great and is easy to reproduce. The scones aren’t too sweet, with hints of strawberry, cocoa, and hazelnut. My recommendation: enjoy these toasted with nut butter […]

 

Paleo Pumpkin Pie Muffins

We’ve been making homemade nut milks, both almond and cashews. It’s a lot easier than we thought, as most of the time is passive while you wait for the nuts to soak in water. The one element we dislike in the process, is after blending the soaked nuts in fresh […]
