Paleo Black Forest Cake

This paleo black forest cake would be really excellent for like, a murder themed dinner party. Or a murder mystery party. Or a gory themed Valentine’s Day dinner. I mean, look at it. It’s dramatic and kind of looks like it’s dripping blood. Delicious, right? Seriously though, it’s really good. And it’s really easy to make. Trust me, I’m horrible at baking. So here’s how I did it – I bought boxed cake mix. Never heard of a paleo boxed cake mix? Now you have: Enter Simple Mills. Simple Mills is my new favorite company. This post isn’t sponsored by them, I just love them that much. While their products are sold at Whole Foods, it’s a lot cheaper to buy them at Thrive Market. Thrive Market is basically an online organic, gluten-free and paleo grocery store that sells products for WAY cheaper. By clicking on this link, you can…

Paleo Carrot Cake

I am a terrible baker. I hate following directions and much prefer to do my own thing. Which is why I’m so in love with Simple Mills, a company that makes high quality, paleo, gluten-free baking mixes. This post isn’t sponsored by them, I just honestly love their stuff. Which is how I easily and quickly made this paleo carrot cake. Simple Mills is sold at a ton of grocers these days, mainly Whole Foods. Except, Whole Foods ain’t nicknamed Whole Paycheck for nothing. It’s expensive. Which is why I prefer to order Simple Mills products from Thrive Market. Again, not sponsored. I just like Simple Mills and I like Thrive Market! You can actually get 20% off your first three orders at Thrive Market by clicking here. 20%! That’s a lot! Think of how much paleo carrot cake you can make! So I used two boxes of Simple Mills…

Gluten-Free Frosted Sugar Cookies

Try my recipe for these Frosted Gluten-Free Sugar Cookies, they’re dairy-free and sweetened with honey and taste absolutely delicious! These Gluten-free Sugar Cookies are the perfect addition to your Christmas Cookie Platter! When the holidays hit, I’m overcome with the compulsion to bake. And you guys – I’ll be honest, baking is NOT my strong suit. Although these festive gluten-free sugar cookies may change that. Because these suckers are REALLY good. As soon as that Friday after Thanksgiving hits, I’m obsessed with making frosted sugar cookies. They scream Christmas to me (although I used natural/non-toxic food coloring for these so they look a little more Easter-y). My husband said they actually kind of looked like the pies in the movie Hook, when Robin Williams and all the kids sit down to have a feast. You know, when he schools Rufio? No need for baking skills – this Gluten-free Sugar Cookies…

Paleo Cinnamon Roll Cookies

I am continually trying to create an awesome grain-free, sugar-free recipe for cinnamon rolls. I have the flavor down. I make the dough, I roll it out, I add the cinnamon and coconut sugar filling…and then I try to roll it up. This is where it always falls apart. It’s easy to roll out a gluten-filled dough for cinnamon rolls because the gluten acts as a binder. When it comes to grain-free baking, this aspect is tough because it just doesn’t hold together like gluten. So Im’ still working on a recipe for the dough, but in the meantime, I’m in love with these cookies. They taste exactly like a delicious cinnamon roll, just in cookie form. Because they’re cookies, they’re also way easier to make. This recipe makes about 16 cookies. [amd-zlrecipe-recipe:27]

Paleo Pumpkin Cheesecake Dip

It’s happened. Even though it’s 90 degrees out. September is here and everyone I know is already going nuts for fall, pumpkin,  pumpkin spice, scarves, and cute sweaters. Cheesecake dip is just part of the equation. I’m over here just tryin’ to cling to the last little bit of summer and plan weekend beach trips before it gets too cold. But I’m also a realist. I know you guys want pumpkin recipes. You’re all excited for autumn, even if I’m not. I know you guys want easy, healthy recipes that taste good. And this definitely fits the bill. It took all of five minutes to throw together. This cheesecake dip is actually pretty healthy. Unlike most dessert dips you’ll come across. No refined sugar, no GMO dairy, and no sketchy ingredients. Enjoy, and happy fall. Paleo Pumpkin Cheesecake Dip Paleo Pumpkin Cheesecake Dip is a healthy fall dessert that is…

Soft, Chewy & Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookies

My husband is a chocolate chip cookie monster. It’s his favorite cookie. On Wednesday I made a big batch of these cookies (which I’ve been perfecting for a while) for our friend’s birthday today. The recipe below makes about 14 cookies. When I woke up this morning, there were two left. HE’S EATEN TWELVE COOKIES SINCE WEDNESDAY. IT’S FRIDAY MORNING. So while it’s a bummer I won’t be gifting these to my friend for his b-day, at least I know that they’re good. Sometimes I’m not sure if I like something I’ve made because I’m so used to eating grain and sugar free, or if they actually taste good. Scott is a chocolate chip cookie expert and said these were really good – but very soft. He’s one of those people that prefers a crunchier chocolate chip cookie. I am not. These are super soft and chewy, just don’t over-bake…

Metabolism Boosting Raspberry Coconut Oil Bites

I’m always trying new ways of incorporating coconut oil into my diet but can’t stand the taste of it when I’m just scooping it out of the jar, chewing it until it melts and swallowing it. Swallowing any oil is tough. It’s just weird and kind of gross. But it’s important to consume coconut oil daily, as it’s great for both the gut and metabolism. Coconut oil is high in  medium chain triglycerides (MCTs) that boost the metabolism. Studies have shown that when people replace fats with MCTs, they burn more calories. What’s especially interesting about the fats in coconut oil is that the body doesn’t store it as fat but uses it for energy. The MCTs in coconut oil are immediately sent to the liver where they are used for energy. Thus, boosting metabolism! Many people wrongly assume that because coconut oil contains saturated fat, it’s unhealthy. The opposite is…

High Protein + High Fiber Chocolate Pudding

Looking for a chocolate dessert free from refined sugar and starches? This delicious healthy chocolate pudding is easy to make and high in protein and fiber!  Looking for a healthy chocolate pudding with no refined sugar and starches? Look no further than this High Protein Chocolate Pudding! This easy recipe for healthy chocolate pudding started out with me experimenting with one of my new favorite dairy products out there. I ordered raw and grass-fed cottage cheese from a local farm and it’s the best cottage cheese I’ve ever had. It eventually inspired the creation of this super-healthy high protein chocolate pudding recipe. I used most of the cottage cheese to make a lasagna (I use it in place of ricotta because it has a higher protein content). But I still had a ton leftover. So, I thought it would be interesting to make a protein packed, high fiber chocolate pudding…

Paleo Blueberry Bread Pudding

I’ve really been craving blueberries lately. I got a bunch of bags of frozen bags of organic blueberries at Trader Joe’s and they’re surprisingly delicious. If I’m craving them, I automatically assume that means my body needs some specific nutrient found in blueberries. And who am I to deny what my body needs? So I made paleo blueberry bread pudding. I settled on bread pudding because I wanted something kind of cake-y and kind of bread-y. And because I suck at baking – it’s pretty difficult to f*ck up bread pudding. I mean, it’s just a blob of sweet, gooey bread. I topped mine with raw goat milk but you can use whatever you like. Ice cream would be awesome.   Paleo Blueberry Bread Pudding This healthy paleo bread pudding with blueberries is kind of cake-y and kind of bread-y. You don’t need to be a good baker to whip…
