Chocolate Date Caramel Tarts (Gluten Free, Vegan, Paleo)

Chocolate Caramel Date Tarts (Gluten-Free, Vegan, Paleo) from Bakerita.com Busy, busy, busy. I really don’t know how else to sum up my life right now.

Of course, I’m having the absolute time of my life, traveling to new and exotic cities every weekend, eating way too much delicious food (if there is such a thing), spending time with my best friends, and completely exhausting myself in the process. But hey, I’m only here for a limited amount of time, and I plan on making the most of it!

The side effect of my busy/exhausted life is far too few posts for you guys, and for that, I repeatedly apologize. I do hope you’re all enjoying my travel posts though! [Read more...]

No-Bake Snickers Pie

No-Bake Snickers Pie, a luscious cheesecake filling that is full of Snickers, peanuts, and dulce de leche! | Bakerita.comLast week, Ally and Mariah, two of my best friends from school, came to San Diego for a few days (and we all went to Newport Beach, and Santa Barbara!) and since I had brought Mariah a dessert made of all of her favorite things, Ally requested a dessert that had all of her favorite things. I know Ally has a major thing for Snickers, cheesecake, chocolate, and caramel (um…who doesn’t?) so I decided I would play off on a combo of all of them.

My mind ment straight to no-bake cheesecake, and my recipe for my Chocolate Peanut Butter Mousse Pie snuck into my head. Since Ally also loves Oreo crusts, I figured this would be absolutely perfect. [Read more...]

Chocolate Berry Tart (GF, Paleo, Vegan)

Chocolate Berry Tart (Gluten-Free, Paleo, Refined Sugar Free & Vegan!) from Bakerita.com Remember this Dark Chocolate, Coconut & Macadamia Nut Tart? If you don’t…go look. I’ll wait…

See it? Good. Well, after it got made by so many people I knew I needed to create a new version, while still keeping it delicious as well as paleo, vegan, and gluten free (not a very easy task). So this time around the paleo, gluten free, vegan tart block, I went summery. I got inspired by the gorgeous berries staring at me in the market, and knew I could create a gorgeous and damn delicious berry tart with them (not to be cocky or anything). [Read more...]

Dark Chocolate, Coconut & Macadamia Nut Tart (GF, Paleo, Vegan)

Dark Chocolate, Coconut & Macadamia Nut Tart (It's Gluten Free, Paleo, & Vegan!) | Bakerita.comSometimes you’ll come across a recipe that so darn decadent, there’s absolutely no way that it can be healthy. And usually, you’re right. Most super decadent desserts are not only loaded with calories, but with fat, sugar, grains, and carbs.

Unfortunately, that eliminates many people from enjoying them, because so many people have food restrictions, like gluten free, paleo, egg free, and so many more. Thankfully, this recipe is gluten free, grain free, vegan, paleo, and refined sugar free. [Read more...]

Chocolate Peanut Butter Mousse Pie

Chocolate Peanut Butter Mousse Pie | Bakerita.com I don’t really know how to explain this pie. It’s finally gone as of last night, and I actually miss it. I miss a pie.

Help.

But truly, it’s that good. Now, I made a TON of desserts over these past 5 or 6 days and everyone who came through the house had a different favorite. Two definitely stood out for me though, and this was one of them. As long as it was sitting in our fridge, I was stealing small slices I hoped no one would notice.

It’s super rich, and turns out a small bite or two (or three) was all I needed to satisfy the craving.

It was just so good I kept going back to it. [Read more...]

Pecan Pie (made with browned butter and NO corn syrup!) | Bakerita.com

Pecan Pie

Oh, pecan pie, my love.

I never tried pecan pie until I first started (really) baking, which was just after my 16th birthday (AKA just a little over three years ago).

I had always found the pie curious, and I’d always wanted to try it, but my family always stuck with the requisite apple and pumpkin for the holidays, and I never really got the chance.
