Chocolate Chunk Zucchini Bread

Paleo Chocolate Chunk Zucchini Bread #glutenfree #grainfree | from Bakerita.com Sooo this was the first time I’ve ever had zucchini bread, but now I totally get what all the fuss is about. This stuff is delicious! 

Now I wish I was one of those people who had the problem of way too many zucchinis in the summer, because in addition to my spiralized zucchini dinners that I’ve been obsessed with this summer, I now want to make this zucchini bread all. the. time. [Read more...]

Paleo Blueberry Banana Swirl Cake with Homemade Blueberry Compote | From Bakerita.com

Paleo Banana Blueberry Swirl Cake

Paleo Blueberry Banana Swirl Cake with Homemade Blueberry Compote | From Bakerita.com Is it a bread? Is it a cake? This recipe is sort of an odd in between, but I called it a cake because it looked more like a cake than a bread. But it’s totally a cake you can eat for breakfast, zero guilt involved. Awesome, huh?

This cake is barely sweetened at all, but lacks no sweetness thanks to the bananas and blueberries. It’s also incredibly moist and tender. It’s totally Paleo, gluten-free, grain-free, and dairy-free. It’s also beautiful! Look at those swirls! [Read more...]

Chocolate Ice Cream with Peanut Butter Cookie Dough & Fudge Swirls | from Bakerita.com

Chocolate Ice Cream with Peanut Butter Cookie Dough & Fudge Swirls

Chocolate Ice Cream with Peanut Butter Cookie Dough & Fudge Swirls | from Bakerita.com I couldn’t let summer pass me by without making some ice cream. It’s a staple.

However…since an ice cream maker isn’t something most people have on hand, and it’s something I definitely don’t have living with a bunch of other girls in college, I opted to go the ice cream maker-less route for this ice cream.

The pros: the ice cream is SO easy to make, so few ingredients, and requires ZERO cooking. No sitting with a custard over the stovetop for too long, stirring and waiting, waiting and stirring…this ice cream base recipe requires little to no effort on your part. You simply whip the cream, mix the sweetened condensed milk with some melted chocolate, fold them all together and voila: chocolate ice cream. [Read more...]

Paleo Chocolate Chunk Banana Bread - sweetened only with bananas! Recipe at Bakerita.com

Paleo Chocolate Chunk Banana Bread

Paleo Chocolate Chunk Banana Bread - sweetened only with bananas! Recipe at Bakerita.com I originally was not going to post this recipe on Bakerita, not only because I already have way too many banana bread recipes on this site, but also because 80% of them include chocolate in some way. Oops. #sorrynotsorry

But…after I made it, and it got devoured within mere hours, with everyone having no idea it was grain-free and no sugar added (besides the chocolate), I decided it needed to be posted. Also: that’s why my pictures are sorta lame. Wasn’t really planning on posting them, but here we are. And YEAH – this is no sugar added. This banana bread is sweetened only with bananas. Of course, I ruined the sugar free thing by adding chunks of chopped chocolate (so much better than chocolate chips guys – try it), but who can resist melted chocolate chunks floated around their banana bread?!?

Blueberry Crispy Tart with Oatmeal Crust (Gluten-free, Vegan, & Refined Sugar-Free) | from Bakerita.com #recipe Soo…if you follow me on social media (InstagramTwitterFacebook, if you’re interested!), you might’ve seen me go a little baking-crazy yesterday. It had been a while since I did a crazy weekend of baking, and I took advantage of most of my housemates being gone to make lots of treats to post for you guys!

Baking is my personal form of self-therapy, and spending the whole day baking yesterday just makes me want to do it all over again today! Minus clean-up – that’s no fun. [Read more...]

Baby Reds & Baby Greens Salad with Roasted Garlic Basil Dressing

Well this is a day I didn’t think would ever come. I’m sharing a salad recipe. On my baking blog.

I wasn’t sure where you guys would want to see something like this, but I took the vote to Instagram and everyone said they wanted to see it! And because I’ve probably eaten this salad about 3 nights a week for dinner for the past month, I thought it was definitely worthy of a share.

This salad is a total copy cat of a salad called the Baby Reds & Baby Greens Salad from Naked Cafe in Solana Beach, CA. I changed a few things up from the original, but this salad was definitely inspired by that one. It’s literally always one of the first things I want to eat when I come home from school for a break. I went to go get it the first day I was home from being abroad! In N Out Burger was my first meal out when I was home, and going to get this salad was the second. If that doesn’t say how much I love it – I don’t know what does. [Read more...]
