This simple sweet potato pie recipe is not only delicious but will make your house smell amazing! It’s great for get togethers, like Thanksgiving, because it can easily be made completely dairy free and it is already gluten free. This sweet potato pie also uses only coconut sugar and maple syrup so no artificial sweeteners or refined white sugar!

Pumpkin Banana Muffins

Pumpkin Banana Muffins

These pumpkin banana muffins are light, fluffy, and perfect for the Fall.  They are meant for breakfast, but don’t be surprised if you’re tempted to eat them for every single meal throughout the day.  I made a batch this morning and my three year old wanted them for every meal AND snack!  He’s now in bed with a stomach full of these deliciously fulfilling healthy pumpkin banana muffins. This is my VERY most favorite time of the year.  It’s right before the holiday season kicks off with Halloween, the weather is starting to cool, leaves are changing, AND it’s prime time for comfort food.  I’m already a huge fan of quick breads and have a special weakness for banana pumpkin recipes.  I created these Chocolate Pumpkin Banana Muffins a couple years ago and have not looked back since.  If there’s a potential recipe where I can continue to combine banana and pumpkin, create I will. I know I repeat myself, however I love sneaking healthy ingredients in recipes without anyone knowing.  Fabulously healthy grains like chia seeds and flaxseed are easy to add into muffins such as these.  Also, I have tried several different whole wheat flours and now only use Bob’s Red Mill whole wheat pastry flour.  It keeps your baked good light, fluffy, and healthy.  Trust me.  It’s a must try.   SO if you’re wanting to keep this pumpkin banana muffin healthy, you can spread coconut oil instead of butter over fresh-out-of-the-oven muffins and drizzle pure honey on top.  You can thank me later.  Now hurry and go bake these addicting banana pumpkin muffins.

Almond Chocolate Chip Cookies

Almond Chocolate Chip Cookies

These almond chocolate chip cookies are so good you’ll eat them for breakfast, lunch and dinner! Oh, and did I mention you won’t feel guilty because they are full of wholesome ingredients! Win! So I typically try to eat little to no grains, refined sugar, and diary (I LOVE dairy, but it doesn’t love me). Some people call it eating paleo; I just call it how I eat! It’s how I eat if I want to feel my best and I definitely always want to feel my best! Whether it’s lifting weights or washing dishes, I want to have energy abundant and in order for that to happen I know I have to fuel myself with delicious, wholesome foods. So when I first made these cookies I was so excited that the ingredients came together so beautifully and how delicious they turned out. Not only are they paleo, they are egg allergy friendly too! The ingredients include coconut flour, almond butter (yum!), honey and almonds. Super good and super good for you! Not only are they paleo, they are egg allergy friendly too! The ingredients include coconut flour, almond butter (yum!), honey and almonds. Super good and super good for you! I’ve eaten these as a dessert, but I have also grabbed one in the morning to enjoy with my tea. They have protein and fiber and a little sweetness, oh and chocolate! Who doesn’t love chocolate! (I guess those who are allergic, which is just super sad…) They also kind of remind me of the peanut butter cookies I had when I was younger, which is a bonus! I hope you...
Eggless Muffins

Eggless Muffins

Muffins! Do I have your attention, now? Yes, muffins got your attention! Because they are super delicious! One of men’s best creations. Muffins are best friends with coffee and pretty much the reason why I even bother getting out of bed some days. Here’s my proposal, do an experiment, make a batch of muffins and bring to work, or right before your spouse comes home. See how much love you are going to get for bringing muffins into people’s lives. I’ve been doing it for years. I am not ashamed of getting people’s affections through baked goods, specially muffins, since that’s the hot topic. Muffins are mini joy cakes. They are supposed to be fluffy and sweet, but not overly sweet. They are usually accompanying a cup of tea or coffee, or if you are my husband, milk. Loved by most, desired by all. Nobody has ever said no to a fresh baked muffin standing right in front of them.   Even your friends with egg allergies or on a diet. They can totally be a part of the love-sharing with these eggless, sugar free muffins. So my advice to you is to go ahead and bake some of these whole wheat muffins today! Or tomorrow! Fill your house with the smell of love and baked goods! It will be worth the 15 minutes you’ve spent making these! Seriously, only 15 minutes. Could be 10 minutes. This recipe calls for applesauce. If you use store-bought applesauce, it will be 10 minutes to put this together. I make my applesauce from scratch because it’s so dang easy and delicious. I...
