Vanilla Oat Scones with Maple Glaze (Gluten Free)

I had a four day long weekend from work this week- they call it "Fall Break," and it's the perfect reset after the chaos of the beginning of the school year. I feel so refreshed which was much needed after the craziest first two months of school I've ever had. I spent the weekend working... Continue Reading →

Grain Free Carrot Cake with Cream Cheese Icing

We just spent our Sunday at a fall festival where Dax got to go on his first hayride to pick out a pumpkin and ride a pony. The weather was perfect, and it was so fun to see him have blast. We came home and napped and relaxed and ate leftovers from the week for... Continue Reading →

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies (Flourless, Grain Free)

I'm always looking for ways to make my favorite baked goods grain free and flourless whenever I can. My body feels better when I eat less carbs, but that doesn't mean I don't still want the "bad" stuff. When it comes to muffins and breads and cakes, I usually need to use almond or coconut...

Sweet Potato Bread (Grain Free, Refined Sugar Free, Paleo)

I'm not lying when I say I could eat sweet potatoes every single day, forever. Not only are they one of the healthiest, most nutritious foods you can put in your body, but they are also so versatile. Seriously, any meal you can think of can probably be made healthier and tastier by adding sweet... Continue Reading →

Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bars (Flourless, Grain Free, and Low Carb)

As a teacher, summer is obviously my favorite season. I don't complain about the heat because I'm so grateful to have 2 months off work every year, BUT... as soon as school starts back up, I'm ready for fall. I love the cooler weather, the plaid flannels, and yes, I'm one of those people who... Continue Reading →

Blueberry Streusel Muffins (Gluten Free and Lower Carb)

I don't eat muffins often, but when I do, blueberry streusel muffins are my muffin of choice. I love the freshness of blueberries paired with a sweet and crunchy topping. Unfortunately, muffins like that are basically the equivalent of eating a big slice of cake for breakfast, and that's obviously not the best of food... Continue Reading →

Chewy Chocolate Tahini Cookies (Gluten Free)

When most people think of tahini, they think of hummus, and that's pretty much it. I have to admit, I used to think the same thing. I've learned, though, that tahini is a much more versatile ingredient than I ever thought. It's great for baking, especially for those who have nut allergies or when you... Continue Reading →

Funfetti Cake Batter Ice Cream (Dairy Free and Gluten Free)

In honor of National Ice Cream Day today, I decided to celebrate by making a homemade Funfetti Cake Batter Ice Cream. If you haven't had cake batter ice cream before- you know when you lick the bowl and spoon after making cake batter? Well, imagine that exact flavor really cold, extra creamy, and without the...

Coffee Ice Cream (Dairy Free)

Coffee ice cream probably wouldn't be my first choice at an ice cream parlor (I'm the type who likes giant chunks of cookie dough or rainbow sprinkles on my ice cream), but at home on the couch, coffee ice cream on top of one of my decadent and fudgy avocado brownies is one of my...
