    Say hello to the new pancake recipe around!

    Or shall I say, say hello to the new way of eating pancakes around here. These Gluten-free Pancake Roll Ups are absolutely insane. They get extra crispy on the outside and have this dreamy cake-like consistency on the inside.

    I am all about that pancake life as you guys know and these pancake roll ups are one of my latest favorite ways to enjoy my hot cake obsession. They remind me of a crepe in many ways but still have that thicker and more pancake-like feel to them. You can mix in anything you want to the batter like dark chocolate chips, blueberries, anything! And once they are cooked, I love smearing some nut butter and filling the cake with some fruit too.

    The absolute must-have for this recipe though is Simple Mills Pancake + Waffle Mix. You guys know my obsession with Simple Mills-anything and their pancake mix is unreal. It is made with all grain-free, gluten-free and dairy-free ingredients and the base of the mix is almond flour. I love how they use all ingredients that would go into homemade pancakes too, and they make it 10x easier to whip up a stack when you are craving some! Continue Reading

    I am pretty sure many of my recipes are also Passover-approved but since it is right around the corner, I wanted to make something especially for the holiday.

    I am never into the desserts served at the seder that are store bought. They end up tasting like cardboard in my opinion and after my dinner, I want and crave something indulgent and rich and goooood.

    These Grain-free Chocolate Chip Brownies are just that. They are made with wholesome ingredients like almond butter, eggs, sweetened with maple syrup and they are filled with Enjoy Life Foods Dark Chocolate Morsels for the ultimate fudgey brownie.

    I made these brownies on a whim when my Mom put me in charge of dessert duty for our family’s seder. Ezra’s first Passover and granted he can’t taste these but I like to think he will through my milk supply ūüėČ I cannot wait for one day when he can actually enjoy some treats with me.

    Whether you are celebrating Passover or Easter or just find this recipe in the middle of the year, I promise this brownies will satisfy your chocolate craving and sweet tooth. I love that they are made with just a few ingredients and they are dairy-free, gluten-free and grain-free. Adding in Enjoy Life Food’s Dark Chocolate Morsels really just tops of the recipe in my opinion. The mini semi-sweet chocolate chips or chunks also work for this and they melt so perfectly in the oven. Continue Reading

    Gluten-free Cinnamon Swirl Breakfast Bread (grain-free)

    I am giddy just thinking about this recipe right now. Making that Vegan Cinnamon Roll Banana Bread got me on a  roll!

    This is hands down one of my favorite breads I have ever made. That is a very bold statement, I know! I am beyond obsessed.

    As someone who absolutely loves cinnamon raisin bread and all things breakfast bread, this is the ultimate loaf. It has that cinnamon raisin bread taste and the consistency of a breakfast cake of sorts. An absolute dream.

    What I also love about this recipe is how tastes 100x more indulgent than it actually is. It is made with all grain-free, dairy-free and gluten-free ingredients too. I use a mix of almond, coconut and tapioca flours for the flour. These flours work so well in this recipe and they make it very filling and satisfying for a sweeter bread.

    I sweeten the bread with a mix of coconut sugar and Simply Organic Cinnamon Sugar Trio. Not sure where the cinnamon sugar trio has been all my life, but thank you Simply Organic. This is officially going to be my go-to in cinnamon rolls and anything else I am whipping up that needs that cinnamon taste. I also use this blend in the cinnamon sugar swirl in the bread. The swirl itself is really what makes it even tastier. It gives a sweet cinnamon sugar taste throughout the bread and when you eat it warmed or hot out of the oven, I cannot recommend smearing a little nut butter or butter on top. It is too die for!

    The carrot cake binge continues friends!

    When the only way you’ll eat carrots is when their hidden in a dessert, you have to get creative in the kitchen ūüėČ And this Gluten-free Pecan Carrot Cookie Cake is absolutely¬†insane¬†and officially my go-to dessert right now. It isn’t often a dessert recipe satisfies me that doesn’t have chocolate in it but this recipe hits the spot.

    This carrot cookie cake has a crunchy outside and that soft gooey cookie center we all love. Plus you can top it off with some ice cream of choice or even some creamy coconut yogurt for a little fancy snack or dessert actions.

    Did I mention you only need to dirty one bowl to make this recipe too? Easy prep, easy clean up and you are set.

    I also add in some of my favorite Vital Protein’s collagen peptides. You guys know my obsession with collagen peptides and baking with it. I love sneaking it into recipes because it adds extra protein and dissolves right into the batter. I use the regular collagen peptides here so it doesn’t add any flavor either. Just all the benefits to consuming some extra collagen in our diets (more on that here). Continue Reading

    I am on a serious crumb cake kick right now. I was recently asking my parents and Jord if they had to pick one epic dessert to eat with no regrets, what would it be?

    For me personally it was a crumb cake of sorts. The epic kind with chunks of powdered sugar crumbs on top of a moist and thick cake. It was always a favorite of mine growing up and really anything crumb cake-related is the way to my weird.

    Now this¬†Life Changing Healthy Chocolate Chip Crumb Cake has made my crumb cake obsessed self the happiest human ever. It is grain-free, gluten-free, dairy-free and has just the right amount of sweetness to it. When I was testing this, I didn’t have much of a pan besides mixing everything into a bowl and hoping for the best. I got lucky with this recipe because the first try and it turned out so delicious.

    I spiced up the traditional crumb cake a bit by adding a chocolatey twist to it (shocker). I mix in some Enjoy Life Food’s Semi-Sweet Mini Chocolate Chips into the cake batter then sprinkle some on top of the cake and mix into the crumb topping. Chocolate overload? Perhaps. But it is the dreamiest addition to this recipe and now we really combined the two best things into one dessert: crumb cake + chocolate. Continue Reading

    Remember when we made those Gluten-Free Chocolate Chip Cookie Brownies aka “brookies” and everyone started to go crazy?!

    Ya, we are back today with a NEW brookie recipe for you. Except this time there are a few new twists on the original recipe I shared.

    For starters, this recipe is about 85% brownie and 15% cookie. I wanted to make something a little more decadent and chocolate-y than the usually half cookie/half brownie portion in a brownie cookie recipe. Plus the brownie in this is a lot fudgier than usual. It’s almost like a moist cake of sorts and when you bake it in cupcake/muffin form, it really makes it even more cakey than I imagined – I am obsessed!

    The brownie in this is also grain-free, gluten-free and dairy-free. I use a mix of almond flour, cacao powder and melted dark chocolate (along with a couple other goods) to get that extra dense and chocolate-flavor.

    But now let’s chat about the peanut butter cookie topping. Some may say this is “cheating” but I personally think this is one of the smartest baking hacks ever. As someone who spends¬†a lot¬†of time in the kitchen testing all different things, I love making most things from scratch. But there also comes a time when you are in a rush or just don’t feel like making cookies from scratch and I don’t blame you. As a soon-to-be Mom, I have a feeling that will be the new normal over here. Continue Reading
