This gluten-free and refined sugar-free pie is gooey, crunchy, and the perfect addition to your holiday dessert line-up.So, I have a pie recipe that you’ve got to add to your Thanksgiving line-up. It’s not just me insisting it – I just got a FaceTime call from my Aunt Tara, dying to show me her lunch: a big slice of this chocolate pecan pie. She works with my dad, and I sent this pie along with some of my homemade twix bars to work with him.

She was obsessing over it, declaring it the best thing I’ve ever made and insisting it be made again for Thanksgiving. She’s had a LOT of the things I’ve made over the years, so that’s saying a lot. Needless to say, it’ll definitely be making an appearance on our Thanksgiving dessert table. [Read more…]

If you’re new around here, you may not have yet seen my plethora of granola recipes or heard about how darn much I love the stuff.

I’ve gone on and on about how granola, yogurt, and berries is my go-to breakfast…but like anyone would, I get bored of that sometimes, so the granola has got to be switched up. Now, whenever one batch is on its last serving, it’s time for me to create a new granola recipe. [Read more…]

These Pecan Pie Blondies are a portable version of one of my favorite pies! The recipe for these sweet bars makes rich browned butter blondies topped with crunchy pecan pie filling.I had planned on sharing a different recipe today, but after the reactions that these pecan pie blondies produced, I had to share them with you as soon as I could, or it just wouldn’t be nice of me.

Yesterday, I urged my roommate Ally to try one of these pecan pie blondies, giving her my description: “the brown butter blondie base you love, topped with maple pecan pie filling”. She’s tried pretty much all of the baked goods that I’ve made over the past few years, and so she’s a pretty good judge of comparison and her reactions help me be able to call something absolutely amazing. I don’t know if she was expecting much, but as she took her first few bites, there was moaning and a definite teary eye.

Paleo Pecan Pie

This Paleo Pecan Pie is a healthier version of a holiday favorite! This recipe is a gluten-free, grain-free, refined sugar-free alternative to traditional pecan pie with the best Paleo pie crust I’ve ever tried!

Paleo Pecan Pie | A healthier, grain-free, gluten-free, refined sugar-free alternative to traditional pecan pie. This is the BEST Paleo pie crust I've ever tried! Recipe from Bakerita.comPhew, just barely sneaking in one last Thanksgiving recipe before the big day. This is a good one though, so listen up: I took a super guilty, sugar-free favorite and I made it way more guilt free. This pie proves that pecan pie sooooo does not need corn syrup to be good (in fact…it’s way better without that nasty stuff).

Pecan pie is a favorite of mine, and has been ever since this recipe entered my life. It’s full of browned butter and brown sugar and tons of pecans. That recipe is absolutely delicious, and is what this one is based off of. However, that one, though corn-syrupless as well, is still full of sugar and definitely a sinful treat. [Read more…]

Browned Butter Caramel Pecan Chocolate Chip Blondies

These one-bowl Browned Butter Caramel Pecan Chocolate Chip Blondies are chewy, easy, and totally delicious! This easy recipe will be a new favorite.

These one-bowl Browned Butter Caramel Pecan Chocolate Chip Blondies are chewy, easy, and totally delicious! This easy recipe will be a new favorite.When I look at the words in the title of this post, I see so many of my favorite things. All the ingredients in this blondie recipe are some of my absolutely favorite baking ingredients, and it’s wonderful that they all play so nicely together. Browned butter, caramel, pecans, and chocolate chips just must be the best of friends, because they seriously love each other in this recipe, and each element works so nicely with the others to create a RICH, but totally delicious and sinful dessert bar.

These blondies use the same base blondie recipe as these Browned Butter Butterscotch Bars (also awesome), which is easy to make and doesn’t require a whole lot of ingredients. The result is a rich, dark, almost chocolate-y looking base because of how deep and dark the browned butter and dark brown sugar make the bars. The taste is buttery and caramelized and everything that caramel lovers appreciate in a good blondie. They get about as “fudgy” as a blondie can manage to be, and the words dry and crumbly will never ever be associated with these babies. [Read more…]
