These Carrot Cake Cookies are drizzled with cream cheese glaze and taste just like carrot cake! The cookies are gluten-free, grain-free, and refined sugar-free.These cookies!!! You guys, I’m really really excited about them. I may have eaten a few off the tray while these were getting photographed. And then some more as they sat, staring at me from the table after they had already been photographed. It’s called quality control – I’m doing it for you guys. Really.

I’m extra thrilled because getting these cookies right means I don’t have to grate any more carrots. It’s the worst part, truly, and if you’ve got a food processor, I’d recommend breaking it out so you don’t have to grate the carrots by hand like I did. Thankfully, even if you’re grating by hand, you don’t need to grate too many – just enough for 3/4 cup! [Read more…]

This Paleo Carrot Bread is incredibly moist, and full of spices, chopped walnuts and golden raisins. This hearty bread is gluten-free and refined sugar free.Soo…I’m calling this Paleo Carrot Bread, because that’s what it is and it’s SEO friendly and decently descriptive, but I really wanted to call this Sunshine Bread. My sister actually came up with the idea for a carrot tumeric bread when she was helping me recipe brainstorm over the holidays, I wrote “sunshine bread!” with the description, and the idea has been stuck in my head ever since.

I was predicting it would turn out to be a beautiful golden color thanks to the tumeric, grated carrots, and golden raisins. However, the coconut sugar derailed my colors plans and the bread turned a more rusty orange color – not as “sunshine-y” and I had envisioned, and the name didn’t fit as well as I had planned. Also, sunshine bread is not descriptive at all.

Shana tova!! That’s Hebrew for happy new year! Hey guys, so I’m home from school today. Why, do you wonder? Because it’s the Jewish New Year!! So I’ve been baking all morning in preparation for tonight’s festivities and I’ll be leaving for temple about 15 minutes. However, before I share my delicious treats (next post, don’t worry!), you can try my new muffin recipe. It’s actually a recipe that’s been floating around the internet for a while now, originally taken from the back of the Bob’s Red Mill flax seed bag. However, while making muffins for my health-obsessed sister Shaina I knew I needed to improve on the already-healthy muffins and still make them taste like heaven. These whole wheat carrot apple muffins are what I’ve come up with.
