These vegan muffins use coconut oil, coconut flakes, and fresh diced mango for a treat that will make you feel like you're on vacation.UPDATE! The photos for this post have been updated from when it was originally posted in May 2013 to represent how darn delicious these Mango Coconut Crumble Muffins are. I left the post as written when it was first published a few years back for nostalgia’s sake. Hope you enjoy this old favorite of mine – it’s perfect for summer! :)

I was a weird little kid. Not saying I’m exactly normal now, but when I was really little, I thought I was already old and wise. I would say the most ridiculous insightful things that my parents would always say I was an old soul because there was no way a four year old would say things like I did. [Read more…]

This Paleo Fresh Raspberry French Silk Pie has an almond flour crust filled with a super creamy chocolate pie filling. Fresh raspberries add brightness to this rich dessert.Tonight, I’m leaving on a red-eye flight from San Diego to Athens, Greece and I could not be more excited. I have been wanting to go to Greece for many years…mostly because I’m pretty sure I could eat Greek food all day, every day and never get sick of it.

Athens is the first stop on a cruise through the Mediterranean, Italy, and ending in Barcelona, Spain – one of my favorite cities in the world. We have an extra few days before and after the cruise to spend time in Athens and Barcelona, respectively, and I can’t wait to eat my way through all the cities 😋 You can bet I’ll be Snapchatting as much of the trip as possible, if you want to follow along :) my username is bakeritablog.

This Blackberry + Blueberry Cobbler is healthy enough for breakfast, but sweet + delicious enough to be dessert! These gluten-free, Paleo, and vegan cobblers have a crisp and gooey topping.I haven’t dabbled in cobblers too much. In fact, this is somehow the first time I’ve ever posted a cobbler recipe on this site. What I have been doing for the past five years?!

I think for a while I just assumed cobbler was similar enough to a crisp or crumble and never needed too much individual exploring, because crisps had already earned top spot on my favorite dessert list. And logically, that should have earned it a place on my list of things to try long ago. [Read more…]

These Jam Thumbprint Cookies are a simple and delicious cookie made with only four ingredients! You won't be able to have just one of these gluten-free, vegan, and Paleo-friendly cookies.UPDATE! I’ve been having a lot of fun remaking some of my old recipes that I think could use a little *erm* refresh, shall we say. Some of my older recipes are definitely outstanding, while the pictures representing the recipes were far from it.

This recipe was originally posted back in January of 2014, when I had first arrived to London for my semester abroad. Remembering that first week, I barely remember getting sick, and just remember how much freaking FUN I had on my semester abroad. Oh, nostalgia…these cookies, too, are still totally outstanding. I don’t like erasing old posts…soooo, here’s the original (pictures replaced, except for one) from 2014! [Read more…]

I hope everyone had a wonderful long Memorial Day weekend, and is enjoying the short four-day week! Mine has been nothing short of fantastic – if you’ve been following along on Snapchat, you’ll know I’m currently road tripping with my dad from Seattle down to San Diego.

We are not taking the quick way though. We’re winding slowly but surely down the 101, and we’ve spent three nights on the Oregon coast so far. The first night was spent at an adorable bed and breakfast on the beach in Newport, which is just about the cutest fishing town ever with delicious seafood. [Read more…]

These Raspberry Rhubarb Almond Bars have a crisp almond flour crust topped with soft almond frangipane, fresh raspberries, and tart rhubarb. This recipe is Paleo, gluten free + refined sugar free.Before we talk about the swoon-worthy Raspberry Rhubarb Almond Bars staring at you, I have to make a little announcement! I haven’t officially mentioned it yet, but now that my moving van is scheduled and there’s boxes sitting in my living room, it finally feels real – and close. I’m moving back to San Diego! For those that don’t know, I was born and raised in San Diego, and I moved up to Washington when I was 17 to go to college at University of Puget Sound.

After graduating almost exactly a year ago (uhhh…WHERE did that year go?!?), I moved to Seattle, where I’ve run this blog, lived with one of my best friends, and baked my heart out for the past year with a beautiful view of the sound and a super cute patio (which I’m going to miss a bunch).

This Chocolate Peanut Butter Oatmeal tastes like a peanut butter cup, but it's sweetened with just a ripe banana! You'll love to wake up to this gluten-free, refined sugar-free + vegan breakfast.The photos in this post were updated in May 2016, but the recipe and writing below remains the same as when originally published! I’ve been rephotographing some of my old favorite recipes here on the site that don’t get nearly enough attention, probably because the photos didn’t do this delicious oatmeal justice.

But, for memorial’s sake, I’m not rewriting the post at all. All that’s below, including the recipe, is the original from July 2012. Enjoy – this recipe is still one of my favorites! I make it at least a couple of times a month :)

It’s clear to everyone who knows me I’m addicted to chocolate and peanut butter together. They’re perfect for each other, and anyone who has ever eaten a peanut butter cup can attest to that. [Read more…]

This Strawberry Rhubarb Chia Jam has fresh and vibrant fruit flavor, and it's made without pectin - it uses chia seeds as the thickener! This easy refrigerator jam is refined sugar free, vegan and Paleo-friendly.Are you one to make your own jam? If you are, you already know the beauty of transforming a bounty of fresh fruit into a delectable spread you can enjoy on everything. If you’re not, it may seem like a time consuming process that’s not particularly worthwhile – you can just grab a jar of your favorite flavor for a few bucks when you’re at the grocery store, right?

Right, in theory…but, wrong. Because the jam that you buy from the supermarket will never be as fresh and vibrant and delicious as the jams that you can taste warm from the saucepan, watching the fruit as it bubbles along into jammy goodness.  [Read more…]
