These no bake Dried Cherry, Almond + Chocolate Chip Granola Bars are the perfect grab and go breakfast or snack. These flavor-packed granola bars are gluten free, refined sugar free, vegan, and topped with a dark chocolate drizzle!When I was a little one, I could not pronounce ‘granola bar’ for the life of me. I loved them and requested them often, but in my toddler gibberish, I was unable to ask for them, instead requesting “ganenah boats” – something my parents tried hard to decipher for a while before finally figuring out I was referring to granola bars from me pointing at them.

With my little kid speech impediments, it took me a few years before my pronunciation made sense to anyone outside of the family, but the granola bar love perpetuated through childhood. To be honest, though, I’d sort of fallen off the granola bar wagon. [Read more…]

Start your morning with Peanut Butter & Jelly Oatmeal for a healthy & delicious breakfast treat! This gluten-free and vegan oatmeal is sweetened with a ripe banana.When I was younger, I did not like oatmeal…at all. All I had ever really tried was the instant packet variety which, in all it’s mushiness, didn’t really do anything for me. It wasn’t until I was in my late teens when my sister showed me how she makes her oatmeal – with rolled oats and sweetened with just a banana – that I finally started to appreciate it.

Now, I often crave a warm bowl of banana-sweetened oatmeal, especially on the upcoming cool fall mornings and cold winter days. But even with the still-warm weather, I can appreciate the deliciousness of a good bowl of oatmeal and it’s magical ability to keep me full for hours. [Read more…]

This Mozzarella Heirloom Tomato Galette showcases beautiful heirloom tomatoes bubbling with melted mozzarella cheese, all tucked into a gluten-free + grain-free Parmesan crust. Since I tried making my first galette earlier this year, this irresistible chocolate strawberry one, I’ve been having galettes on the mind rather often. A galette, if you’ve never had one before, is essentially a rustic version of a pie or tart. It has a similar flaky crust that’s rolled out, and it can have a fruity or savory filling, but instead of being placed in a pie dish or tart pan, the edges of the pastry dough are folded up and around the filling, forming a freeform kind-of pie.

After that initial Chocolate Strawberry Galette was such a raging success, I had dreams of a galette that could be dinner – I wanted something savory, full of veggies and cheese. From that, the Spinach Artichoke Galette was made…and subsequently devoured. [Read more…]

These Chocolate Chip Macaroons are a heavenly snack or dessert - they taste like a cross between a macaroon and a chocolate chip cookie! Plus, they're gluten-free, Paleo, and vegan.Being a baking blogger and recipe developer means I end up with a whole lot of baked goods around me. I’m constantly making and trying new treats, and in addition to what you see, there’s a lot of things that don’t make the site because they’re not good enough. But even with all that does make it here to be shared, certain things tend to stand out.

Obviously, I have my favorites. And considering how damn hungry editing the photos of these macaroons made me? These chocolate chip macaroons are definitely a new favorite. I’m highly considering making another batch of them tonight, but I’m nervous I’ll definitely probably eat the whole batch, way too quickly, which would be highly reminiscent of these last few times I made these.

Happy Friday! Another summer weekend is upon us, and I hope you’ll be spending it well! Particularly, enjoying the sunshine and hopefully some delicious baked goods, starring some of summer’s best produce. My summer fruit obsession is continuing strong, and this blueberry nectarine pie is definitely an appropriate representation of that.

Is it just me, or are nectarines a little underrated? Especially in the baking world! You see peaches as the star of so many different recipes, but nectarines are barely ever used. I think that’s a grave mistake, because nectarines are definitely one of my favorites for as long as I can get my hands on them.  [Read more…]
