Chai Spiced Buckwheat Pancakes

Hello! Talk about sharing this way later than I had “planned.” I actually had this all scheduled to post early last week, but then I decided I wasn’t the biggest fan of the photos (I really never am) AND then a few days ago I wanted to try one last adjustment…I cut two ingredients and…

Peppermint Mocha Cookies

Where are my crispy cookie fans at??? Willow won’t be joining us at this cookie party because she claims these are too crispy for her…yet she will plow through those Simple Mills cookies like nothing, which are waaay crispier than these. Life with a five year old (insert the eye rolling emoji). She will, however,…

RECIPE: AIP Banana Bread Pancakes

I have been trying to make a good AIP pancake now for months. I’m talking since way back in September. And when I say ‘good’ I mean so good that Willow doesn’t even miss the chocolate chips. When I presented this trial to her a couple of weeks ago, she hesitated to take a bite,…

Grain-Free Chocolate Cookies

Over the last couple of months, I have become obsessed with this DIY paleo flour blend. Not only is it way cheaper to make your own blend, but it also took all of the guesswork out for me because when it comes to using coconut flour, I literally fail every. single. time. But with this…

One-Bowl AIP Sugar Cookies

Ah, the glorious world of grain-free, nut-free, vegan baking. Have you tried it? It’s definitely NOT easy and I bow to those who are seasoned pros because after just a few trials I was ready to pull my hair out and throw in the towel. But I’m glad I didn’t because otherwise I wouldn’t be…

Blender Vanilla Cake with Coconut-Raspberry Frosting

  I have never worked so hard on a recipe before and quite frankly, I hope I don’t have to for a while! Lots of frustration and tears shed, but I was SO determined to create the cake that Willow requested for her birthday. There came a point when I was close to throwing in…

RECIPE: Chocolate Muffins

Funny story about these muffins – I created this recipe months ago, but when I went to type up the blog post, my notes got all jumbled together and I couldn’t figure out which trial was the one. I stared at four separate pieces of paper with jotted measurements and couldn’t figure it out! I was…

RECIPE: Red Velvet Mini Donuts

  I love when recipes get created spontaneously and unexpectedly. Willow has been on a HUGE pink kick…I’m talking smoothies, clothes, and coloring everything pink. My favorite is when she drew a picture of our family and gave Josh pink hair. Last week she asked for pink donuts and at first I thought, “how in…

RECIPE: Nutty Cookie Bars

If you open our refrigerator, you’re bound to find jars filled with just about every variety of nut (and seed). Not only are they packed with protein, but they also make excellent milks, cheeses, desserts and much more. I was experimenting with a new cookie recipe and was feeling a bit lazy…rather than taking the…
