Sunbutter Chocolate Chip Cookies

These cookies are perfect when you want a sweet snack that won’t blow your sugar quota for the day. In fact, they contain absolutely no added sugar! Dates are naturally very sweet and offer a hearty texture to hold these cookies together. They’re also quite chewy (not as chewy as […]

 

Salted Tahini Chocolate Chunk Cookies (Paleo)

If you love a chewy chocolate chip cookie, (thinking about those fresh baked Mrs. Fields cookies we used to get in high school. Why were those sold at school?! Do they still do that??) I think you’ll like this healthier version. The tahini gives them a rich, gooey cookie dough […]

Lasagna Bolognese (gluten free, dairy free)

This lasagna recipe doesn’t fit in with my typical “30 minutes or less” mantra, but if you have two hours on a weekend, this is the recipe that keeps on giving all week. Most American lasagnas tend to be very cheesy (ricotta, Parmesan, mozzarella, etc). While that’s insanely good, the […]
