These mini cakes are small enough so that no one has to share!One of the most awesome things about being a food blogger is the awesome community that comes with it. Food bloggers, I’m sure all of you agree with me.  The sense of camaraderie and support for one another always amazes me, and there’s always someone to help celebrate successes, both blogging related and life related.

In the spirit of camaraderie and celebration, today I’m bringing you a recipe as part of a virtual baby shower for my friend Cheryl over at 40 Aprons. Cheryl is welcoming a baby boy at the end of September, and a group of us got together to share some delicious recipes in celebration of Cheryl and baby Leo!

These Peanut Butter & Jelly Crumb Bars have a layer of PB&J in the middle, surrounded by a crunchy oatmeal crust. The bars are gluten-free, vegan, and refined sugar-free.Let me start with this: these bars are one of my new favorites things. But…the first time I made these bars, I immediately knew I couldn’t post them. They were so hideous, and what was supposed to be a crumbly topping ended up completely melting into the peanut butter layer. I also burned them a little. They looked vaguely like the surface of the moon.

Once I tried them though, I went on a quest to perfect these bars. Despite being unattractive based solely on appearances, these bars were my dream as a peanut butter lover, even burned and ugly. There was no way I could salvage them enough to photograph them so they’d look good enough to post, so the recipe went back to the drawing board.

The bars are gluten-free, vegan, and refined sugar-free.These bars smelled just like PB&J as they were baking in the oven, and the resulting treats were super peanut buttery with a hint of fruitiness from the jelly. They were irresistible. Literally, because I ate 80% of the first pan with only a little bit of help from my roommate Ally. [Read more…]

These Tropical Cookies are loaded with white chocolate, macadamia nuts, lime zest, and toasted coconut! These tropical treats will have you dreaming of a vacation.I love to make cookies. I like to make cookies for the people in my life, whether it’s for a special occasion or no reason at all. Cookies just scream “here’s something comforting because I was thinking about you,” don’t they?

If you can deliver them warm, even better. There are few things on the planet that can beat a warm, gooey cookie, especially if it’s slightly under-baked and/or has melty chocolate chunks. [Read more…]

It tastes like dessert, and it's gluten-free, dairy-free, vegan, refined sugar-free, and absolutely delicious!It’s no secret chocolate and peanut butter are my favorites. I drone on and on about it frequently enough, so I was surprised at myself that I hadn’t created a chocolate peanut butter granola recipe yet.

Don’t worry, all has been resolved and Bakerita now has a kick butt chocolate peanut butter granola recipe (if I may say so myself). Keeping in fashion with most the other granolas I have posted on Bakerita, this one is totally gluten-free, refined sugar-free, dairy-free, and vegan. It sure doesn’t taste like it though!

Fresh berries are way at the top of my list of my favorite things about summer, right up there with cold fruity cocktails, sandy beach days, and 10pm sunsets. Raspberries, in particular, are some of my favorites.

A few weeks ago, I convinced my friend to come raspberry picking with me about an hour east of Seattle, and we spent hours weaving our way through the raspberry bushes, pulling the sun-ripened berries right off the vines. Only about half of the berries made it into the basket – the rest were going straight into our mouths. There’s nothing like eating a raspberry just pulled off the vine, still hot from the sun. I could eat pounds of them, just like that. [Read more…]

You're only six ingredients away from these delicious Paleo Chocolate Almond Butter Thumbprint Cookies! This easy cookie recipe is also refined sugar free and vegan.Though I do have a crazy love for peanut butter that has been more than obvious over the years of writing this blog, I’ve more recently fallen in love with almond butter. It’s a little less smooth than most peanut butter is, but I love the texture it has, and the flavor offers something a bit different from peanut butter.

Almond butter has definitely been gaining in popularity, and it seems just about every big time peanut butter maker has been expanded into almond butter territory. Being the almond butter lover I am, I’m all about it. But! You can also totally make almond butter at home in the food processor and flavor it with whatever you want. One of my favorite ways to make it is this Dark Chocolate Coconut Almond Butter. [Read more…]

This easy recipe is gluten free, refined sugar free, and vegan!I love when the desserts I make that are gluten free, refined sugar free, and vegan are the one’s that turn out to be the favorite.
