These Paleo Cherry Almond Chocolate Chunk Cookies are chewy, gooey, and absolutely delicious! These gluten-free and refined sugar-free cookies are loaded with toasted almonds, dried Bing cherries and dark chocolate chunks, sprinkled with flaky sea salt.I’m here to make Monday a whole heck of lot better by talking about one of everyone’s favorite things: cookies! More importantly, cookies with BIG old chunks of dark, melty chocolate. Isn’t that the best kind there is?

When I first made these Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookies last year, I knew the recipe was a total winner. They were devoured super quickly, and it barely registered that they were “Paleo” – no one cared, they were just delicious. A whole bunch of you agree with me – just check out the comments on that post! The edges of the cookies get just crispy enough, while the cookies stay super thick, so the inside is niiice and gooey, just the way I (and apparently most of you) like it. [Read more…]

These Almond Joy Brownies have a coconut butter topping and a drizzle of dark chocolate - you'd never guess that these indulgent brownies are gluten-free, refined sugar-free, and Paleo!The candy copycat train has gotten rolling and it CAN’T BE STOPPED! Since the Homemade Twix Bars started this obsession, followed by the smashing successes of these homemade Peanut Butter Cups + the Girl Scout Cookie copycat Samoa Bars, I’ve been thinking of lots of candy-inspired but totally healthified recipes to make for you.

Next up: Almond Joy Brownies! I was going to go for straight up copycat Almond Joys, and that will probably happen around here someday, but piling all the goodness of an Almond Joy onto a deliciously rich and fudgy brownie? Well, that sounded like it needed to be made ASAP. [Read more…]

So, I haven’t said it “out loud” on here yet…but as I have mentioned a few times on Bakerita already, I just graduated from college. I moved to Seattle…and I’m purposefully not looking for a job. As I struggled to figure out what I wanted to do with my life, I was presented with a couple of opportunities that inspired me to choose the less conventional path: working on Bakerita.

It’s sort of hard and scary to be intentionally not trying to find a job after graduating from college, but the temptation and draw of working for myself and doing what I love is inspiring me to take a risk, while I can. I’m beyond grateful to have family, friends, and you – my readers – to support me, because without anyone reading Bakerita, there’s no way I could do what I do. [Read more…]

When it comes to eating breakfast, I am sooo a creature of habit. I get into a breakfast routine, and I stick to it. Since I started college, I’ve been almost perpetually stuck in the same breakfast routine of yogurt, berries, and granola.

The yogurt has graduated from my younger years, when I ate only low-fat vanilla yogurt. While I used to scoff at Greek yogurt, and I now love the stuff. It’s thick and creamy and makes breakfast just so much better. [Read more…]

These flavorful cookies take just 5 ingredients and are totally gluten-free, Paleo-friendly, and refined sugar free.Sometimes I don’t like saying a recipe is Paleo, and gluten-free, and refined sugar-free, because I feel like the people who don’t need or choose to follow those diets just dismiss them as not as good as the sugar-y stuff. And it’s wrong, I tell you!

These cookies are super secretly healthy (not that anyone would know from tasting them) and so easy to make (just five ingredients!!!) and so tender that they seriously just melt in your mouth. They’re moist and soft and just a little crumbly. My housemates devoured them, and we were all sad when these were gone off the cookie plate. [Read more…]
