Healthy Granola Bites – Gluten and Dairy Free

Crispy, chewy, and quite healthy, these granola bites are a tasty snack! I came up with this recipe all by myself when I had just finished making granola. I started throwing ingredients in a bowl until I got a dough! They turned out quite tasty, and our nine year old friend told me, ‘Zoe, these…

‘Muddy Buddies’ or ‘Puppy Chow’ – Gluten and Dairy Free

Crispy, chocolatey, peanut buttery, and coated in sugar, this treat is much better than the store bought ones and even better than the recipe on the back of the Chex box (plus, they’re dairy free)! I like to do a bad job stirring the chocolate peanut butter mixture into the cereal so that there is…

Healthy Chocolate Chip Zucchini Bread – Gluten and Dairy Free

Crispy, chewy, and delightfully chocolatey, this zucchini bread tastes amazing but has VERY low levels of sugar! Most zucchini ‘bread’ recipes I see are full of sugar, making them more like cake! This one is low enough that I can add it to my healthy category! It is definitely not a savory bread, but it…

Homemade Honey Vanilla Chamomile Tea – Gluten and Dairy Free

Fresh, flavorful and ten times better than store bought, homemade chamomile tea makes it worth growing chamomile! The honey and vanilla enhance the slightly apple – y subtle chamomile flavor. We grew chamomile in our garden, you can buy seeds here. I let the chamomile sit on a piece of paper for a few days,…

Peanut Butter Brownies – Gluten and Dairy Free

These rich and fudgy brownies are super thick and intensely chocolatey! I made them for a bake sale at my dad’s work. They are quite simple, but they require many layers. The hardest part was definitely the slicing. I asked my mom to do that part. She made them look absolutely gorgeous and they all sold out…

Raspberry Crisp – Gluten and Dairy Free

Sweet and crispy topping with tart and gooey berries. I helped my little sister make it for our mom’s friend. We served it hot with vanilla coconut milk ice cream. If you need an easy, fresh, and fun dessert full of berries, this raspberry crisp is the perfect plan! PRINT Serves: 8 Prep Time: 20…

Healthy Peanut Butter Chocolate Muffins – Gluten and Dairy Free

Smooth, fluffy, and peanut – y muffins. Mildly sweet, soft, and tender, these muffins are amazing! They taste like normal muffins; not at all eggy and super easy! My sister ate one and then ran around yelling ‘I can’t believe these are SO healthy!!!’ Many people have tasted them and been super surprised that they…

Healthy Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies – Gluten and Dairy Free

No, this is not what you are thinking it is. It is not banana and oats with a few sparse chocolate chips to form an odd congealed ‘cookie’. I have made those and I think they are disgusting. These are crispy and chewy, subtly sweet and chock full of chocolate chips. Simply stir together coconut…

Almond Butter Filled Brownies – Gluten and Dairy Free

Fudgy and rich brownies layered with creamy smooth almond butter. I decided not to add ganache because these brownies are so fudgy anyway. I think they taste pretty amazing with some coconut cream on top. I asked my mom if I could make almond butter brownies and she thought I was talking about a healthy…

Coconut Cream (Gluten and dairy free)

Are you dairy free or trying to bake for a dairy free friend? Did you decide to make a pie or a strawberry shortcake? But when you were halfway through, you remembered that whipped cream would be good on it. Coconut cream is an incredible solution! If you add vanilla extract, you will get the…

Moist and Fudgy Chocolate Cake (Gluten and dairy free)

I think cake is fun to make. I really don’t know why I like to make it, but I do. This cake is a different sort of cake. It uses oil instead of butter and cocoa instead of melted chocolate. It has a very rich chocolate flavor and is moist and fudgy without tasting like…

Strawberry Shortcake (Gluten and dairy free)

This dessert was an adventure. It pushed me into the realm of coconut cream and dairy free adaptations. I think it turned out pretty incredible. We went to the farmer’s market and my favorites, hood strawberries, were being sold. The biggest problem with hoods, though, is that they decompose in about three days. That means…
