Grain-Free Pumpkin Pie Cookies

By Ashley | Dessert , Recipes

This recipe is a refinement of the pumpkin pie cookies that I posted around this time last year. I was determined to make them healthier and just as tasty, and I am proud to say I succeeded.

German-Style Pear and Vanilla Pancake

This is the perfect dish when you are craving pancakes but you don’t feel like standing over the stove. Also, it is hard to believe that this pancake is gluten-free, dairy-free, and refined sugar-free. It is a quick simple recipe using ingredients that are always in my pantry. It is incredibly simple to change it up as well: use berries when they are in season, or bananas, macadamias, and coconut for a tropical twist. And […]
