This Peanut Butter Granola is the perfect breakfast treat. 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!

These Raspberry Mint Brownies use tangy raspberries and fresh mint for an addictively fresh and minty taste in these rich and fudgy chocolate brownies. I started a garden! A very small herb garden consisting of three plants on my patio, but a garden nonetheless. Right now, we have rosemary, basil, and mint, but once I prove that I can keep these alive we’ll definitely be adding some more plants to the mix.

So far, so good – though the basil has gotten pretty wilted a couple of times there, thanks to the recent blazing Seattle sunshine. Thankfully it revives easily. What other herbs are easy to take care of?!

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 simple Frozen Lemon Cream Tart with Browned Butter Crust is rich in texture and flavor, and super refreshing on a hot day! You'll love this easy recipe.This crust is seriously one of my favorite things, probably ever. It ranks right up there with peanut butter (as mentioned in my last post) and taking long walks in nice parks and listening to podcasts. If you like browned butter, (and let’s be honest, if you’ve had it, you probably love it) you’ll seriously enjoy this.

This crust is flaky and buttery, with that rich deep flavor that comes from browning the butter slowly. It has a shortbread-like texture that has just the right amount of bite and crumbles into deliciousness as soon as you take a bite. It’s melt-in-your-mouth good. [Read more…]

These big Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Caramel Filled Cookies are soft and chewy peanut butter oatmeal cookies studded with chocolate chips, surrounding a chocolate covered caramel!This cookie combines three of my favorite and most used ingredients: peanut butter, chocolate, and caramel. Let’s be honest: anything with those three ingredients makes me pretty darn happy.

And since I’ve spent the past few weeks trying to figure out all of the things that make me happy and how I can incorporate them into my new everyday life, food seemed like a good place to start. Not that food ever makes me unhappy (is that possible?). [Read more…]
