This easy recipe is gluten-free, refined sugar free, and vegan.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…]

I went to New York City, where my mom, sister, and I ate through the list of recommendations I received from followers on my Instagram. Thank you, thank you, thank you guys for leading me to some delicious food.

We went to Smorgasburg, which if you like food and are in NYC…you must go. This is total foodie heaven with every type of food you could possibly imagine. We had Bolivian saltenas and pork sliders, Venezuelan arepas, raw zucchini noodles in superfood pesto, and samples of way too much other good stuff. I could go back every weekend for a month and still not try everything that I thought looked good! [Read more…]

It's gluten free, refined sugar free, and vegan.I never really know what to say when people ask me what my favorite dessert is, or what my favorite thing I’ve ever made is. I have over 250 recipes on Bakerita.com, and that’s not included all the desserts I made pre-Bakerita or the recipes that never made it up for whatever reason. There’s so many choices, and my answer changes way too frequently.

But, one dessert is always my kryptonite: apple crisp. I can never resist it. Something about the warm, baked, bubbling apples and that crunchy crumble topping does me in every time. Add a scoop of ice cream on top and I’m a goner. The way the cold ice cream melts down into the crevices of the crisp, adding a light extra sweetness and creaminess is totally irresistible.

This No-Bake Raspberry Chocolate Tart comes together in just ten minutes! The no-bake chocolate crust is filled with vegan chocolate ganache and topped with fresh raspberries for a decadent, guilt-free treat. One of my absolute favorite parts about summertime is the berries. There’s nothing like a fresh, ripe strawberry that has juice dripping down your chin, or being able to pop sweet and tart raspberries in your mouth. I love all of them, and as they come into season and get sweeter, brighter, and more affordable, they become a staple of my summer diet.

While I love to devour them alone, enjoying their sweetness and freshness, I also love to make (and eat) berry tarts. If you’ve been around Bakerita for a while…you’ve probably seen some of my favorites. This Chocolate Berry Tart is one my ultimate favorites (and it’s Paleo and vegan!) and this Blueberry Crisp Tart with Oatmeal Crust is comforting and delicious. [Read more…]

It makes the perfect snack by itself, or mix it into some yogurt for the perfect breakfast.I’m a total granola fiend. Seriously. I go through granola so quickly because I eat it for breakfast, no joke, just about every single morning. My go-to favorite breakfast is Greek yogurt (sometime flavored, sometimes not), berries (whichever ones I have), and a scoop of whatever homemade granola I have at the time. It’s simple, so delicious, and fills me up until lunch.

I really never get sick of it, and that’s probably because it’s a rare occurrence that I make the same granola recipe more than once. Usually, I make some slight variation on one of my favorite recipes that I’ve already posted on here. [Read more…]

How in the world did that happen? It feels like last year that I was writing a post about brioche and my college decision (throwback alert) and whipping up treats in my freshman year dorm room microwave for my (short) series on Dorm Life Eats.

I’ve somehow managed to keep baking, and blogging, and photographing, and writing, through every year and step of college. In some ways, I think my college career would have been different if I hadn’t been committed to Bakerita. Bakerita is my totally my creative outlet, and without this outlet, and without being able to chat and connect with all of you…the past few years would’ve been pretty different. [Read more…]

They're gluten-free and sweetened only with bananas!Remember the Caramel Filled Chocolate Banana Bread Muffins I made a few weeks back? Remember how I said they’re probably not the best choice for a breakfast muffin, and lean more on the side of dessert than healthy breakfast muffin? These little Paleo Banana Blueberry Muffins are the opposite.

These little guys were bound to be a hit, because I adapted the recipe off one of the most popular recipes on Bakerita – Paleo Chocolate Chunk Banana Bread. It’s sooo good and totally tastes like regular banana bread, hence why everyone loves it. And because this recipe is loosely tied to that one…I had a feeling these would be delicious. [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…]
