Flourless Chocolate Tahini Cookies

Chocolate + Tahini + Salt = LOVE Dear WordPress, how do you NOT recognize tahini as a word??? That little red squiggly line annoys me! Ha! It has been a LONG time since I’ve shared a tahini recipe with you, which is silly considering I use tahini on an almost daily basis. Whether savory or…

Grain-Free Snickerdoodles

Crispy outer edges, buttery, pillow-y, soft + chewy center with the perfect amount of sweet and salty. I think these might be my new favorite chocolate-free cookie! Willow was skeptical at first because they were missing chocolate chips or a chocolate coating, but I convinced her to take a bite…she went back for a second…

January 2018 Favorites

Hello! Happy February! I hope you all had a great January and that you’re staying warm. We’ve had a really strange winter so far…no snow and mild temps 40’s and 50’s…even a day near 70 earlier this week! I’m not complaining, but we’d really love for Willow to be able to enjoy her new snow…

Peppermint Mocha Cookies

Where are my crispy cookie fans at???

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…
