These super scrumpdidlyicious healthy Banana Chocolate Chip Pancakes are made from only seven ingredients. That includes the coconut oil in which you sauté them. The base of these pancakes (one of my super easy breakfast recipes) is cashews –that’s right, no flour, not even almond flour.
Replacing high-carb wheat flour with lower-carb cashews is fantastic for those watching their blood sugar. Cashews also work well in baking (see my Cashew Bread recipe) for folks who are gluten-free, which is another reason I use them.
While these quick and easy pancakes are a fantastic breakfast on a weekend morning, I also like to serve them along with an egg dish on Sunday nights for dinner. Breakfast for dinner is a family favorite in our house, and the boys especially appreciate the change in routine.

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 […]

Summer is definitely here and our house is the place to be. The neighborhood boys congregate on our trampoline –with the sprinklers aimed at it for a good cool down and a great deal of healthy fun.
With all of this activity I keep the food flowing morning, noon and night. From the time they arrive until dinner (sometimes a bunch of them stay for the evening meal too) I am setting out munchies –snacks, lunch, etc. They really are a […]

I originally posted this date sweetened, gluten free muffin recipe the year before last in my Great Agave Debate post. Because it was part of something so much bigger, it kinda got lost in the mix. I’m re-posting it because I think it’s an easy, super tasty, healthy recipe that will please both agave lovers and haters alike.
For more information on agave, please check out my Great Agave Debate post and all of the amazing reader comments and debate […]

When I saw this recipe for a purely fruit sweetened carrot cake from Heidi over at 101cookbooks.com I just knew I would want to make it into some sort of gluten free version. So I did.
Last weekend our friends Chris and Larry came over to sit out on our porch and read the Sunday New York Times with us while soaking in some good Colorado sunshine and we enjoyed these descendants of Heidi’s carrot, banana, date yumminess. Here it is […]

This Roasted Banana Coconut Ice Cream is naturally-sweetened, vegan, gluten-free and made with only five ingredients (don’t be scared by all the descriptors). I’ve based this healthy ice cream recipe on one from Karina’s Kitchen.
This ice cream is fairly easy to make; there are just a couple of steps involved. And I can tell you Roasted Banana Coconut Ice Cream is mighty tasty and my children love it –we hid it from my husband because we wanted more for the […]

My children love to have fruit salad as an after school snack. I often serve it to them with organic yogurt, adding a bit of vanilla and agave nectar to the yogurt.
It’s just about fruit season here in Colorado and everything is starting to look luscious. We have strawberries ripening on the plants in the front yard and peaches (still green) on our peach tree in the back. Right now however, even though I’m harvesting mountains of kale and […]

Here’s another flourless cake for those looking for an alternative to almond flour or in search of a nut-free recipe. My husband and older son loved this fruity chocolate cake. I was thinking that with a nice strawberry frosting this cake would make a delicious banana split type dessert.
This gluten-free, grain-free cake is quick and easy. You’ll just want to make sure that your bananas are quite ripe to ensure its sweetness. If you can do dairy, this cake would […]

Here’s what. Their son Lee will celebrate his first birthday next week. And they have another little one due any […]
