Warm Spiced Apple Slices

The fall is just beginning and I’m already into pumpkin spice everything, but since apple picking season comes and goes so quick, I figured I’d do a super, super easy apple recipe! This would be perfect to make after you get home from a day of apple picking and you’re tired but excited to make something with your freshly picked apples. It’s just 3 simple ingredients and 2 simple steps!  On an exciting side note, look what I found at…

Toasted Almond “Iced Coffee”

Dandy Blend is an instant “coffee alternative” made from dandelions. It tastes similar to coffee, but it’s caffeine-free. Dandelions are great for the liver and detoxifying the body. I like to drink Dandy Blend when I’m craving coffee later in the day. I normally only drink two cups of coffee in the morning, so I’ll have this toasted almond flavored drink at night for a treat. It’s also a great alternative to people who love coffee but can’t drink it.…

Paleo Pumpkin Pie (Nut-Free)

Thanksgiving is just around the corner! If you wanna keep it paleo this year, include my paleo pumpkin pie in your dessert line-up! I use Otto’s cassava flour to make the crust. It’s my new favorite baking flour. It subs 1:1 for wheat flour and has a great texture for baked goods. You have to order it online – but it’s free shipping! You know what really irks me? When I see Christmas stuff out before Thanksgiving – and people…

Soft & Chewy Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

These pumpkin chocolate chip cookies are soft & chewy. They’re also grain and nut free. I originally created this recipe to make pancakes, but that was a major fail. As I mixed everything together, instead of turning out like pancake batter, I had a thick dough. Sooo, I decided to make cookies and add chocolate chips. They’re very lightly sweetened and make a great fall dessert. Once it hits September, I’m all about pumpkin everything. I’m your stereotypical white girl…

Pumpkin Butter Recipe

Fall is in the air! I get so excited when fall rolls around because that means it’s time for PUMPKIN EVERYTHING! I love all the fall treats and apple cider, apple picking, pumpkin picking, fall fashion and just about everything fall has to offer. The only downside is that it’s followed by winter- which I hate. This pumpkin butter recipe was inspired by the pumpkin butter that was served with the bread at a restaurant I ate at when I…

Blueberry Explosion Protein Muffins (grain/nut-free)

I’ve been eating a lot of collagen lately. I mix it in my protein shakes, put it in my coffee, eat Bulletproof collagen protein bars, & now I’m making protein muffins with it! It definitely does have anti-aging benefits- my acne scars have been clearing up and I have younger looking skin. Collagen is also great for your joints & digestive system. The brand I use is Vital Proteins. To make the muffins grain-free and nut-free, I used Otto’s cassava…

Dairy-Free Kefir Parfaits

  So, I’ve been wanting to experiment with fermented foods for a long time. I eat fermented foods. I’ve just never made my own, until now. I bought a book on fermenting foods about two years ago and have been so distracted, so I never tried. Someone I know had more kefir grains than he was able to keep up with and offered some to me. I took that as a sign it was time to finally try fermenting foods.…

Paleo Chocolate Pudding Pie (Nut-Free)

Growing up, for every holiday my grandma would always make tons of food. She would make spanokopita from scratch (which the whole family would devour) and tons of desserts to bring over. One of my favorite desserts that she would make was Chocolate Pudding Pie. I always looked forward to it with her homemade whipped cream on top. After she was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s Disease, we started buying spanokopita from Greek shops and there was no more of her homemade…
