This banana bread/muffin recipe was adapted from our family’s favorite pre-paleo recipe, and now we’re sharing it with your family. Grain-free, dairy-free, and nut-free, anyone and everyone will be able to enjoy this classic quick bread.
My kids love these real-fruit, no-sugar gummies and I love that they’re getting the benefits from gelatin and real fruit and not the nasty side-effects of corn syrup and artificial colors and flavors.
Homemade almond butter is fresher, healthier, and tastier than store-bought. Maple sugar (which is just dehydrated maple syrup) is used as the sweetener which makes sure that the almond butter consistency isn’t messed up by adding the liquid version of the sweetener. We love this Maple Cinnamon Almond Butter on apple slices and celery sticks.
This traditional family favorite has been remade to exclude the dairy, refined sugar, and cornstarch, so everyone in the family can enjoy it.
Dairy-free yogurt options at the store have all sorts of strange and potentially dangerous ingredients (carrageenan, anybody?), and make a true dairy-free yogurt at home is expensive and time-consuming. This instant “yogurt” uses only 7 basic ingredients and is ready in under 5 minutes.
Slowcooked sweet potatoes are the easiest way to prepare a lot of “baked” potatoes at one time without heating up your entire kitchen. This is a great way to have an easy source of carbs on hand right after a workout or for surprise dinner guests.
Sometimes you just need a little crunch in your life and these crackers fill that void. With just a handful ingredients and a half hour, you can have homemade grain-free crackers. Use them to scoop up your favorite dip or salsa, or eat them plain.
Our family is always on the go, so finding so finding ways to stay nourished while we’re off on an adventure is important. These little cookies are the perfect mix of soft, chewy, crunchy, and chocolatey. Perfect for a hike in the mountains.
Why buy almond butter in the store when you can make it at home? It tastes better and you control the ingredients. I mean, this is white chocolate almond butter! Way better than anything you’ll find in the store, trust me.
These popsicles are creamy from the coconut milk, with a little bit of crunch from the berries. I prefer to use frozen instead of fresh raspberries because they won’t turn the entire popsicle mixture a pink color when mixed in, and will stay suspended as little rosy flecks.
This will be crunchiest best grain-free granola I’ve had. While you can douse this granola in either coconut milk or almond milk, chocolate almond milk is actually our family’s preference. Topped with fresh berries, this is my favorite non-egg breakfast. And maybe my favorite late-night snack.
Trail mix is so last year. Chocolate dipped clusters are what’s in right now. Or do you not follow food style trends? Yeah, me neither, but these things are so good and so much more fun to eat than trail mix, so why not make them?
Avocados ripen in the blink of an eye, so be ready to make the best guacamole when they do with this Tomatillo Starter. Keep a jar in the fridge for a salsa dip or add some to an avocado. Perfect dip either way.
Dates, fresh fruit, and 4 types of seeds blended together and dehydrated to perfection into chewy, crunchy bars. Three flavor variations, one that contains nuts. Which one will be your favorite?
Apple rings can be pretty expensive to buy in the store, and they often have more ingredients in them than just apples. Take control of your food and make it yourself. Dehydrated apple rings are probably the easiest snack to make.
Store brand cranberry juice has added sugars that counteract the benefits of cranberries. This version uses beneficial honey and you control the sweetness.
If you didn’t already know it was Fall, the influx of pumpkin recipes would have given you a clue. I honestly don’t see why we have to reserve pumpkin for just one time of the year. It tastes so good, why restrict ourselves? I know it’s hard to make things with pumpkin when you can’t […]
Oh my gosh, what the heck is my problem with snacks lately? I swear I have some real food recipes lined up for you guys, but my gosh, I just can’t quit with the snacky stuff lately. Maybe it’s time for another Whole30, since I failed miserably at my last attempt. Seriously, day 2, I […]
I am the grocery shopper in the house. I mean, obviously, since I’m the one who cooks and I know exactly what I need. On occasion, Rob will get some stuff for me if he’s out, and when he comes to the store with me, he’s the kid-wrangler/cart-pusher (which is awesome, by the way). But when […]
