Cookie Dough Chia Pudding [Vegan, GF, DF, Paleo option]

Previously proven by Cookie Crisp, you can also have cookies for breakfast with this recipe.   I love cookie dough just as much as any normal, sane person (IE: ALOT), so it was natural that I wanted to create a cookie dough chia pudding recipe based on my original chia pudding recipe (which is also fantastic). … Continue reading Cookie Dough Chia Pudding [Vegan, GF, DF, Paleo option]

Melody’s Maple Blondies

Who the heck is Melody? I know what you are thinking.  “Who is Melody and why are these her Maple Blondies?  And if they are her Maple Blondies, why aren’t they on her blog?”  Well my precious readers, Melody is a friend of mine (I hear my husband already hollering “She was my friend first!”)… Continue reading Melody’s Maple Blondies

Caramel Peanut Butter Bars [Gluten Free, Dairy Free]

A cousin of Hersey’s Sweet Escapes and a Peanut Butter Rice Krispie Treat. When I was growing up, my grandma was into every kind of “healthy” low-fat dessert.  This included Hersey’s Sweet Escapes candy bars.  These Sweet Escapes bars were low fat and the child version of me did not care.  I looked at these… Continue reading Caramel Peanut Butter Bars [Gluten Free, Dairy Free]

Death By Chocolate Smoothie [Whole30, Paleo, Vegan]

I could basically call this a milkshake, but I won’t be dramatic like that. I love chocolate.  Who doesn’t? (Besides those poor unfortunate souls who are allergic to chocolate, God bless.)   So any time I can fit chocolate into my diet, I do.  I also love smoothies, but I am more selective on these. … Continue reading Death By Chocolate Smoothie [Whole30, Paleo, Vegan]

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bread [GF, DF; Paleo and Vegan Options]

Delusions of grandeur over here as I post fall recipes in the middle of summer, but we will pretend it is fall.

Salted Caramel Chocolate Chip Cookies

Pretzels are in these too, but I thought including them in the full title would have been a little too extra. I love cookies, but not just any kind of cookie.  They HAVE to be soft and preferably no nuts in it (unless it’s a macadamia nut).  One of my favorite kinds of cookies are… Continue reading Salted Caramel Chocolate Chip Cookies

Pumpkin Spice Smoothie [Whole30, Paleo, Vegan]

Since this is best served cold, it looks like we really CAN have pumpkin spice anything all year long. Ahhhh, pumpkin spice.  What’s not to like?  If you are super basic like me, you like pretty much anything that has pumpkin spice.  (Fun fact: I do NOT like pumpkin spice lattes, but I am convinced… Continue reading Pumpkin Spice Smoothie [Whole30, Paleo, Vegan]

Mexican Chocolate Bread [GF, DF, Paleo, Vegan Option]

Spicy and Sweet: Fire emoji, Red dress dancing lady emoji, chocolate bar emoji, pumpkin emoji. I am obsessed with fall and all things fall like the basic girl that I am.  This includes making anything pumpkin.  But, it’s the thick of summer and I thought it may be too soon to post my traditional pumpkin… Continue reading Mexican Chocolate Bread [GF, DF, Paleo, Vegan Option]

Snickerdoodle Blondie Bars

Blondies really do have more fun. I have been making these Snickerdoodle Blondie Bars for many years now, and they are always in my annual holiday baking rotation.  And with all the “Christmas in July” vibes, I thought I would go ahead and share this one since frankly it is good all year round and… Continue reading Snickerdoodle Blondie Bars

Dairy Free Cookies & Cream Cookies

Cookies...inside….cookies? Sign me up! I love everything about Oreos.  They are my favorite packaged cookie.  So naturally I love everything that is cookies and cream flavored--ice cream, milkshakes, cheesecake, ETC.  I even love cookies with Oreos inside them (and if you don’t, I'm not quite sure what is wrong with you).  Now fast forward to… Continue reading Dairy Free Cookies & Cream Cookies
