Happy New Year, internet friends! Can you believe it’s 2015? I hope the first few days of the New Year have been treating you right.

Unfortunately, my first few days of the year I’ve been stuck on the couch trying to fight off a monster of a cold/flu combo. Not fun. I’m on my couch bundled in blankets right now, so I’m not gonna type your ear off, but rather, tell you about this delicious cake and get back to recovering so I can bake up more treats to share!

This Easy Rocky Road Fudge is rich, creamy, and comes together in less than 10 minutes with just 5 ingredients!One of my favorite things about baking is being able to give my baked goods away. Giving people desserts and treats that I create is how I show appreciation, and how I show people I care about them. I say thank you with a batch a cookies, get well soon with a batch of brownies, and constantly make treats just for the ones that I love. As a relatively introverted person in my day to day life, baking is how I connect with people.

It’s something I can get excited about, and it’s something I can talk to people about, and best of all, it’s something that I can share. And during the holidays? I totally have an excuse to make an obscene amount of cookies and candies and baked goods galore, package them up in cute little boxes with bows and ribbons, and send them off to the people who have helped me this year, the people I’m grateful for, and the friends that I care about.

This Chunky Chocolate Cranberry Pecan Granola uses a secret ingredient to keep in chunky, and is the perfect guilt-free DIY holiday gift!We’re taking a quick break from holiday cookies for a healthier, yet still totally giftable treat: chunky chocolate cranberry pecan granola! Phew, long title, but it still doesn’t describe everything I want you to know about this granola. We’ll get into that.

For a long time, variations on this coconut macadamia nut granola and this coconut pecan granola were my go-to granola recipes. But, then I fell in love with dried cranberries and started wanting to cover everything in chocolate, so I tweaked things to create this new favorite, and discovered a new fun trick for making granola extra crunchy and clustery: egg whites.

Paleo Pecan Pie

This Paleo Pecan Pie is a healthier version of a holiday favorite! This recipe is a gluten-free, grain-free, refined sugar-free alternative to traditional pecan pie with the best Paleo pie crust I’ve ever tried!

Paleo Pecan Pie | A healthier, grain-free, gluten-free, refined sugar-free alternative to traditional pecan pie. This is the BEST Paleo pie crust I've ever tried! Recipe from Bakerita.comPhew, just barely sneaking in one last Thanksgiving recipe before the big day. This is a good one though, so listen up: I took a super guilty, sugar-free favorite and I made it way more guilt free. This pie proves that pecan pie sooooo does not need corn syrup to be good (in fact…it’s way better without that nasty stuff).

Pecan pie is a favorite of mine, and has been ever since this recipe entered my life. It’s full of browned butter and brown sugar and tons of pecans. That recipe is absolutely delicious, and is what this one is based off of. However, that one, though corn-syrupless as well, is still full of sugar and definitely a sinful treat. [Read more…]

This Spiced Apple Tart features cinnamon and nutmeg spiced apples nestled in an oatmeal-almond crust. This gluten-free and vegan dessert is healthy enough to double as breakfast! | #recipe from Bakerita.comApples are, no doubt, one of my favorite ingredients to use (clearly – take a look at all my apple recipes!) and definitely one of my favorite things to eat. And eat a lot of them I do! There’s days where apples slathered with a little almond butter replaces meals. It’s the perfect treat, fills me right up, and they’re so delicious.

I cannot get enough of the giant Honeycrisp apples they sell at the grocery store near me, and that’s what I used in this recipe! Honeycrisp’s are my favorite, and I love the slightly tart edge they have. The flavor tasted so succulent with the aromatic spices. Use your favorite apple here though – any kind will be amazing.

Apple Cider Caramel | made with delicious fresh cider for a burst of fall flavors in your mouth! Recipe from bakerita.com

Apple Cider Caramels

Apple Cider Caramel | made with delicious fresh cider for a burst of fall flavors in your mouth! Recipe from bakerita.comThere’s something incredibly satisfying about making your own candy. I always feel way more successful after an awesome batch of caramel or toffee than I do about a great batch of cookies – but the truth is, there’s no need for it to feel like an accomplishment, because it’s really not that hard!

(But you should still totally feel great about making these, because they’re awesome and everyone will love ‘em).

As long as you have an accurate candy thermometer, you’re in business. Candy does require a close eye, but only for a few minutes, and it all comes together so quickly that as long as you have all your ingredients put together before you start the recipe, you’ll be golden. [Read more…]
