    Paleo Gingerbread Fudge (GF/DF/V/Paleo)

    This recipe set my food processor on fire (whoopsie!) but it was totally worth it. This incredible Paleo Gingerbread Icebox Fudge has a rich gingerbread flavor, a chocolate ganache topping, and is loaded in healthy prebiotics. Did I mention it’s a no bake recipe and only takes about 10 minutes to whip up? Store these little squares in the freezer and pull one out when you want a treat. Easy peasy. These babies are loaded in healthy fats thanks to the coconut milk, cashew and almond butter. I added one of my favorite secret ingredients loaded with protein and prebiotic fiber, Daily Uplifter by Uplift Foods (found here.) To learn a little more…

    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…

    Chocolate Almond Cherry Clusters (GF/DF/Paleo/Vegan)

    When we ran out of cookies for Santa on Christmas Eve (whoopsie!) I whipped up these super simple but incredibly delicious chocolate almond cherry clusters in 5 minutes flat. In fact, I made so many I ended up giving some away as gifts on Christmas Day. Paleo and Vegan Chocolate If you are paleo, be sure to use dark chocoate as your base. I used Guittard Akoma Organic Extra Semi Sweet Chocolate Chips which contain 55% cacao and no dairy. However, they are shared on the same equipment as milk chocolate so there may be traces and are not good for those with an actual milk allergy. Other good options are Equal Exchange…

    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…

    Honey Hemp Cashew Clusters (GF/Paleo)

    These delicious cashew clusters were actually invented by my daughter. While we were snacking on some Trader Joe’s Sesame Cashews she said, “Mom, these would be better if they were rolled in hemp seeds instead of sesame seeds.” And that was it. We ran straight to the kitchen determined to come up with a honey cashew cluster that featured the delicious superfood hemp. My daughter and I recipe tested until we came up with the perfect cashew cluster that was refined sugar free and delicious. We used a blend of honey and maple syrup as the base. Melted in some butter and added a few extras: cinnamon, salt and vanilla. Then we roasted…
