Raw Carrot Cake Balls + The Snack Strategy To Eat Less Sugar and Junk

Easter is this weekend so something about these raw carrot cake balls feels appropriate. One of the requests I've been getting in our [RE]NEW YEAR group is for more healthy (and kid-friendly) snack options. And I have to say I feel the same way. I'm always looking for new snack options for myself and the… Continue reading Raw Carrot Cake Balls + The Snack Strategy To Eat Less Sugar and Junk

Banana Oatmeal Cookies + Allergy-Friendly Snack Ideas for Kids

I made these banana oatmeal cookies a few weeks ago for Madlotts' class at school and they were such a hit I thought I'd better share the recipe with you. We signed up to be "snack friend" for the class for pretty much the whole month of September and into October which sounded like a… Continue reading Banana Oatmeal Cookies + Allergy-Friendly Snack Ideas for Kids

Seeduction Bread – An Egg-Free Paleo Bread Recipe + How to Shop for a Bread Worth Buying

I was playing around with my seeduction muffin recipe trying to make this egg-free, paleo bread recipe and I had one of those moments when you realize how much your life has CHANGED. The old recipe required a food processor and a couple extra ingredients that turns out this recipe really just doesn't need. That… Continue reading Seeduction Bread – An Egg-Free Paleo Bread Recipe + How to Shop for a Bread Worth Buying

Seeduction Muffins

I used to be obsessed (I mean, obsessed) with this bread at Whole Foods called Seeduction bread. It’s the heartiest, nuttiest (or seediest) bread I think I’ve ever had and it’s so so tasty. If you’re not avoiding gluten or grains, I highly recommend it on pure taste alone. You know those breads that are… Continue reading Seeduction Muffins

Oh-Mega Apple Muffins

We finally got the rest of our kitchen unpacked this weekend (woo hoo!). And I realized something; it's amazing what you find you don't need after your things have been in boxes for three weeks. In that short time I managed to get bitten by the minimalist bug. Yes, me the same person who spent… Continue reading Oh-Mega Apple Muffins

Happy 2013! I hope everyone had a fantastic holiday. I know I sure enjoyed myself. If you're anything like me, here in the first few days of the new year, you're struggling to get back into what was once your routine.

Orange & Spice (and everything nice) Pumpkin Muffins

One of my favorite Christmas traditions is having a big breakfast at my parents house. Even though we're all grown up now and (almost) out of their house (the front door is a revolving one these days, but I think they like it that way...), we spend the night on Christmas Eve and wake up… Continue reading Orange & Spice (and everything nice) Pumpkin Muffins

Spiced Apple Muffins

I love that you can take anything, make it miniature, and it's instantly cute. Baby shoes, cute. Little nail polishes, cute. Mini Tobasco, cute. And of course, bite-sized muffins... cute. This is a universal truth. I made these little spiced apple muffins for Easter brunch a few weeks ago. They started out as an experiment… Continue reading Spiced Apple Muffins
