Nutrition-packed walnuts and naturally-sweet dates make this Paleo bread the perfect Paleo treat.
This is not your typical Date Walnut Bread, this is Paleo Date Walnut Bread. This bread is purely fruit sweetened, and has no honey, maple syrup, agave or other processed sweeteners. Because of this, the bread is not as sweet, or dessert-like as other breads of mine such as Cranberry Walnut Bread.
During the last year, I’ve worked on lowering the amount of sweeteners in my recipes, and this […]

Celebrate fall with gluten free muffins made from freshly roasted pumpkin and coconut flour, along with a glass of almond milk.

Paleo Breakfast Bread makes a great grain free treat for brunch or a quick breakfast on rushed weekday mornings.
I made this easy gluten free bread recipe on camera last month (which you can view below) for FOX31 and had a blast with host Joana Canals. I was surprised to find myself on TV talking about the Paleo Diet. It seems that this way of eating is gaining mainstream awareness.

Dark chocolate, milk chocolate and white chocolate, all in one gluten free chocolate chip cookie.
I can assure you, this is not a Paleo cookie. It is not even a Primal cookie. It is a special occasion cookie –a wonderful treat to serve at a gluten free Super Bowl party. It also makes a great holiday cookie (think gluten free Valentine’s Day dessert). Lately, everyone who has been over to our house –gluten free or not –has been gorging themselves on […]

Gluten free, grain free, egg free, nut free, refined sugar free (everything) free brownies.
I really enjoy using almond flour –almonds are a superfood and highly nutritious. However, every now and then, someone requests a nut free dessert recipe for some type of gluten free baked good. At other times, folks are looking for an egg free recipe.
There are as many allergies out there as there are colors in the rainbow. This brownie recipe is for all the nut free, egg […]

I’ve been slightly obsessed with rosemary lately. I put it in everything and just can’t seem to get enough of this delicious herb. My latest rosemary victim? Gluten free Lemon Rosemary Mini Muffins made with coconut flour.
I find that rosemary almost has a buttery flavor. It’s also power packed with nutrients including iron and calcium. These gluten free muffins are more of an adult treat than something for children. I’ve been in the mood lately for tasty snacking and dessert […]

I have been craving some good, healthy, tasty, gluten-free Bran Muffins for quite some time. Finally, thanks to flaxmania (I’m on a string of flax recipes this week) here it is.
My friend Chris was one of my guinea pigs for this baking endeavor. She took a flax muffin home from my house one day and ate it the next for breakfast. Later, I received a phone call from her requesting this recipe. I take that as a good sign since she […]

These gluten free Pumpkin Pie Muffins are, of course, a favorite of my younger son. When he was little, he ate so much pumpkin and winter squash that he turned a slightly orange hue. Luckily, he’s back to normal now.
I often forget how much I love cooking with pumpkin until fall arrives. Well, fall is back and I have been using this vegetable with a vengeance.
