Strawberry Kiwi Muffins (Gluten Free)

Strawberries and kiwis are my two favorite fruits and they’re a common flavor combination. I thought it might be interesting to try them together in muffins – blended into the batter. To be honest, the strawberry kiwi flavor is just slightly in the background of these muffins, although I definitely enjoyed them. These muffins are pretty dense and filling made with almond flour, cashew butter, and coconut oil. Try them for a gluten free breakfast on the go or as…

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…

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. It also helps your hair grow and your nails stronger. The brand I use is Vital Proteins.…

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…

Grain-Free Strawberry Muffins

Blueberry muffins are pretty popular, but I’m pretty sure I’ve never actually seen a strawberry muffin before. I have always preferred strawberries to blueberries, so I thought why not make strawberry muffins instead of the traditional blueberry muffins? I love to have muffins for breakfast because they’re grab and go. The thought of having to cook breakfast in the morning is just daunting to me. I really don’t like to do anything until after I’ve had my coffee, and that…
