    Autumn-Themed Paleo Sugar Cookies

    Simple ingredients and natural colors make these Autumn-Themed Paleo Sugar Cookies a fun alternative to traditional Halloween treats and fall desserts. Real Food & Natural Colors A while back, I fell in love with a Paleo Sugar Cookie recipe from Gluten-Free Baking. It’s an amazing recipe, but over the past year I’ve found myself reducing ingredients (sweeteners) and eliminating other ingredients (oil, baking powder) to the point where my own version is quite different from the original. And, now that it’s officially sugar cookie season, it’s time to share how we make cookies in our house. As you’ll see, these Autumn-Themed Paleo Sugar Cookies are made with just six simple…

However, this time of year just calls for pumpkin, and that’s okay as pumpkin treats can absolutely be both yummy and nutritious. This grain-free, dairy-free, nut-free, and refined sugar-free pumpkin bread is one of those healthy treats we’ve been indulging on this (almost) fall season.

    Lemon Blueberry Cookies with Cassava Flour

    While attempting to modify one of my beet cookie recipes into a nut-free version, I experimented my way into these lemon blueberry cookies with cassava flour. The good news? These are delicious. Bad news? They don’t have beets. Oh well, we’ll just have to eat those beets some other way. In the meantime, this sweet little snack is sure to be a crowd-pleaser that also happens to be gluten-free, dairy-free, and refined sugar-free. These are also fairly simple to make. To get started, place the applesauce, avocado oil, eggs, Medjool dates (with pits removed), and vanilla in a blender or food processor for about 1 minute on high speed. While…

    Paleo Spinach and Sweet Potato Muffins

    These Paleo Spinach and Sweet Potato Muffins are gluten-free, dairy-free, and sweetened only with the delicious sweetness of maple syrup, medjool dates, applesauce, and banana. The organic green banana flour also gives these muffins a sweet, earthy taste. Each of these yummy muffins contains over two tablespoons of packed spinach, over one tablespoon of sweet potato, and less than two teaspoons of maple syrup per muffin. Edited: I have since added 6 medjool dates to this recipe, making them just a tad sweeter. I think you’ll find these Paleo Spinach and Sweet Potato Muffins are the perfect snack when you feel like something sweet, filling, and just the right amount…

    Green Banana Flour Muffins (Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, Refined Sugar-Free)

    These gluten-free, dairy-free, and refined sugar-free muffins are baked with green banana flour and packed with sweet potatoes. I hope you enjoy this unique recipe as much as we do. Sweet Potatoes I love to sneak veggies into my baked goods and these muffins are no exception. In the batch pictured in this post, I used an organic hanna sweet potato. This is the variety with a white flesh that turns a yellowish color when cooked. It’s really sweet and I could eat it by the spoonful! I’ve also made these muffins with jewel sweet potatoes (an orange variety) with equally delicious results. Did you know there are actually sixteen…
