    Paleo Chewy Gingerbread Sticks (GF/DF/V/Paleo)

    This is my #1 most asked for recipe. These Paleo Gingerbread Sticks are a huge hit with family and friends. Best of all, they are good for pretty much anyone. The make everyone happy cookie is: Gluten Free Dairy Free Vegan Paleo Grain Free Soy Free Refined Sugar Free Delicious Of course I dunked mine in organic white chocolate and Christmas sprinkles to make them a little extra for the holidays but this is totally optional. I’ve made them dozens of times without doing this and they are just as tasty. Now to be honest, I am not a huge fan of gingerbread cookies. They tend to be really hard and dry. Not…

    Paleo Chocolate Peppermint Cookies (GF/DF/Paleo)

    So these paleo chocolate peppermint cookies are my favorite EVER. They are BOMB. Technically they aren’t perfectly paleo compliant because I used crushed candy canes to decorate them. But otherwise, they are gluten free, dairy free, grain free and refined sugar “light” (is that a thing? LOL!) There is some dark chocolate in the cookies which do have some refined sugar as well as the candy canes that I just mentioned. Otherwise compliant. And you can totally leave out the candy canes but they are super fun. It’s the holidays, gotta live a little! My favorite cookie as a kid was always the Girl Scout Thin Mint cookie. I would freeze them and…

    Paleo Samoa Bars w Collagen (GF/DF/V/Paleo)

    Is it girl scout cookie season yet? I know we all look forward to that time of year, despite the fact that they are really just overpriced cookies (sold by adorable kids). What is your favorite girl scout cookie? Mine is the Samoa. There is something about that chewy coconut caramel on top of a crunchy cookie dunked in chocolate that gets me every time. But instead of buying a sugar laden processed cookie, I made my own Paleo Samoa Bars instead!! These are simple to make, taste delicious, and are secretly loaded in nutrients (you know how I love to sneak stuff in my recipes.) Cookies vs Bars I actually took half…

    Perfect Paleo Almond Butter Cookies (GF/DF/Paleo)

    In the spirit of National Homemade Cookie Day, I decided to have some fun with a bake off: Almond Butter vs Almond Flour Cookies. Which is better? I’ve always thought it would be fun to put the 2 head to head and see which creates the perfect paleo almond butter cookies. The almond flour cookies came out more like a shortbread base and while it was tasty, they didn’t hold a candle to the caramelized chewy goodness of the almond butter cookies. I know they look a little basic, but trust me, they are incredible. The kids ate them right up and were begging for more. Even better, they are grain / dairy…

    5 minute Paleo Coconut Macaroons (GF/DF/V/Paleo)

    Sometimes you feel like dessert, but you don’t want to go to the trouble of spending an hour in the kitchen making something. Am I right? That’s how I felt when I made a batch of these delicious coconut macaroons. They are so easy, even my kids can make them. They literally take 5 minutes to make and maybe 2 more minutes for the chocolate to harden in the fridge. They store wonderfully and are delicious cold so you can just grab and go when you need a treat. Best of all, they are gluten free, dairy free, vegan and paleo. They are low in sugar, high in nutrients and a simple healthy…
