Very Berry Gluten-free Muffins

Posted 28 June 2014 | By | Categories: cake, coconut flour, coconut palm sugar, gluten free, grain free | 2 Comments

4th of July in the United States is known as Independence Day, a time when North Americans remember the day our country gained independence from British rule. The United States is a relatively new country, at least to those of European descent. The continent itself is ancient and alive with history we never learn in […]


Soft “Oatmeal” Cinnamon Raisin Cookies

Posted 14 June 2014 | By | Categories: almond flour, cookies, gluten free, grain free, healthy dessert, recipe | No Comments

When I was little, chocolate chip cookies were my favorite type of cookies on the planet. Oatmeal raisin? Not so much. It wasn’t that I didn’t like them, because I did, they just weren’t at the top of the list. It wasn’t until I started cooking and baking when I was 9 or 10 that […]


Powdered Coconut Palm Sugar

Posted 25 April 2013 | By | Categories: coconut palm sugar | 2 Comments

Some of my dessert recipes use powdered coconut palm sugar to replace regular powdered sugar. Why do I use coconut palm sugar instead of powdered sugar? Well, there are a few reasons: Coconut palm sugar is low glycemic, resulting in a steadier rise in blood sugar and insulin (safe for most type 2 diabetics) Palm […]


Have a Healthy, Gluten-Free Halloween

Posted 22 October 2012 | By | Categories: candy, chocolate | No Comments

Halloween is upon us. Do you feel it? I certainly do. I’ve been drinking Homemade Pumpkin Spice Lattes, watching Hocus Pocus and Halloweentown, and littering the house with Halloweenie (I just made that a word) type decorations. Autumn in general is my favorite season, but Halloween may be one of my two favorite “holidays”. I […]

This all natural pumpkin spice latte is inspired by a beverage that you can get at one of the most famous coffee shops in the world, only during the autumn season. I love autumn–it’s one of my favorite seasons, and when it comes around I find any way I can to use pumpkin and cinnamon. […]


Sunflower Seed Butter Cookies

Posted 10 August 2011 | By | Categories: sunflower seed butter | 2 Comments

This recipe was inspired by Elana Amasterdam’s gluten free and vegan “Peanut Butter Cookies“. I LOVE peanut butter, however this protein packed spread is often contaminated with aflatoxins, a carcinogenic mold that can grow on the peanuts. Certain brands sell peanut butter with lower aflatoxin levels, yet since there are healthier seed and nut butter […]

This recipe is part of Penny Wise Platter Thursday at The Nourishing Gourmet! I have been making this recipe for a couple of months now, as my family seems to want it every week. These people are usual white flour tortilla eaters, so this is saying a lot. In this recipe, I utilize my coconut […]

Homemade Dairy Free Coconut Milk

Homemade Dairy Free Coconut Milk

Posted 13 September 2010 | By | Categories: recipe | 11 Comments

I have been making this coconut milk recently, quite frequently really, using for cooking, and even skin (coconut is a really good nourishing beauty fat). Canned coconut milk can contain preservatives, leeched chemicals from the lining of aluminum, and might be watered down, not containing the full spectrum of medium chained fatty acids. This recipe […]
