Chocolate Date Balls

Chocolate! Give me chocolate! Who doesn’t love a chocolate treat now and then? These raw chocolate date balls are the perfect way to enjoy chocolate. No added sugar! All sweetness comes from dates. Medjool dates work best because they are so, so naturally sweet and creamy! Regular dates work also! No matter what kind of date you purchase, they can be either hard to find or expensive. So I usually opt to make these around Christmas time. They may not be a “typical” holiday treat, but they do work wonderfully at this time. To me, they are guilt free indulgence! … Continue reading

Cashew and Honey Bars with Chocolate Drizzle

Oooh La La. These are delish! Gluten free and allergy friendly baking is not easy. And sometime we just do not have time or energy to do endless measuring. We just want something easy and tasty! Like these Cashew and Honey (and agave) Bars with Chocolate Drizzle. I set out to make these because I wanted something easy like regular rice crispy treats, but without the marshmallows. Marshmallows are corn syrup, sugar, more corn derivatives and more sugar. Not good for people with corn sensitivities, or someone who wants to consume less sugar….way less sugar. I recommend making your own … Continue reading

Gluten Free Grain Free Thin Mint Cookies

Want the traditional Girl Scout Thin Mint Cookie flavor without the milk, gluten and soy? Check out these cookies! Lauren from Oatmeal With a Fork came up with these highly addictive, nearly identical, thin mint style cookies. What is even more awesome…they are grain free too! Yep! Don’t get freaked out by her choice of flour…I promise…you CAN NOT taste anything but super, delicious thin mint cookie flavor! Per her suggestion, I’ve been keeping them in the freezer and I find myself heading there several times a day. I really shouldn’t make these again. BUT I WILL! Her recipe is … Continue reading

Crunchy Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies

Who doesn’t love a chocolaty cookie? This cookie reminds me of Lucy’s cookies. It’s more a dry and crunchy cookie than an ooey-goey one. Yet somehow they are highly addictive. And perfect for dunking in coconut milk (or whatever you drink). This recipe was adapted from Erin McKenna’s Babycakes cookbook. Also shared at Allergy Free Wednesday. Gluten Free Wednesday. Crunchy Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies From: Adapted from Babycakes Cookbook Ingredients: 1 cup oil 1/4 cup xylitol 1/2 cup coconut sugar 1/2 tsp. liquid stevia 1/3 cup unsweetened applesauce 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder 2 T. vanilla 1 tsp. salt 1 … Continue reading

Make Your Own Cherry Pie Filling

Part of eating “free” is making your own food, a lot. And we’re better for it…less chemicals, preservatives, food dyes, fake sweeteners, and high fructose corn syrup, what have you. So today it’s another “make your own post.” Enter: cherry pie filling. I did not use this to make a pie, so I’m not sure how it works in that application. However, I used this pie filling in a salad/dessert type dish. And it worked wonderfully. I love it because it’s easy and free of the bad stuff. I adapted it from Carol Fenster’s Cooking Free cookbook to be refined … Continue reading

Pumpkin Pie: Soy Free, Vegan and Gluten Free

I have several food memories from childhood. Most of them are fond such as using cookie cutters to cut out Christmas cookies and decorating them. Or the smell of homemade bread; warm cookies straight out of the oven after walking home from school. Some of them are not so fond. The one that sticks out for me and was a defining moment has to do with Thanksgiving and pumpkin pie. I always liked pumpkin pie, so when it came time to “order” my dessert at a turkey supper fundraiser I asked for pumpkin pie. (I was quite young, I’m thinking … Continue reading

Fall Fruit Sauce

I made Savory Squash Soup yesterday and it was delish. If you have not tried it yet, by all means….go, print out the recipe. You will love the soup even if you are not a big squash person. And as always, when I cooked the squash for the soup I had leftovers. I actually plan it that way. I buy a bigger squash so that I will have leftover squash. I was going to make Not Your Mama’s Chocolate Shake, but I didn’t have ripe bananas. Don’t you hate it when you want to make something, only to find out … Continue reading
