Gluten Free Triple Chocolate Hazelnut Truffle Cookies

Gluten Free Triple Chocolate Hazelnut Truffle Cookies

Does this title even make sense? It sounds so absurd. Yes, there are 3 types of chocolate in these cookies: dark, milk, and white. Well, I guess technically 4, because the cookie base is made with semi-sweet, but I’ve already committed to this name. Quadruple sounds too high maintenance. AND. I added hazelnuts. AND raisins, but I couldn’t get myself to add those to the title. It just would sound like I’m listing ingredients. Next it would be “Butter, cocoa,…

Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

You know how you pick up that bunch of beautiful bananas from the grocery store on Sunday? And they’re a little green on the ends? So you know they’ll be perfect in a day or two? And then it’s Saturday and only 2 are eaten? And those brown dots are forming, and it feels like they’re closing in on you, and soon you have brown banana anxiety? Ok. Probably just me. But don’t let them win. It’s time do something…

Gluten Free Oatmeal Raisin Chocolate Chip Cookies

Gluten Free Oatmeal Raisin Chocolate Chip Cookies

I’m in the habit of testing recipes on people. It’s like I’m thinking, “oh we’re going to someone’s house, and I’m bringing dessert. This is the perfect opportunity to test out a recipe and hope it works out ok.” Yeah, sometimes it doesn’t. But! I did that last weekend when I made 4 dozen cookies to sell for a fundraiser for our weightlifting team at our annual Lehigh Valley Open Olympic weightlifting competition. All you really need to know about…

Gluten Free Tahini Honey Chocolate Chip Cookies

Gluten Free Tahini Honey Chocolate Chip Cookies

I’m instantly intrigued by recipes that have interesting sounding ingredients in them. If you were to substitute the word peanut butter for tahini in this recipe title, then I’d be much less interested. (Actually I’ve already made peanut butter honey chocolate chip cookies on the blog.) BUT! Add some different ingredient, particularly one that is typically added into savory foods, and now you’ve got my attention. So if you’re the same then, then I created this recipe with you in…

Chocolate Pistachio Date Truffles

Chocolate Pistachio Date Truffles

Ok. So these really aren’t truffles per se. But I couldn’t get myself to call these Chocolate Pistachio Date Balls. Truffles have the connotation that you’re going to want to savor the flavor of these. Like truffles, they’re simple, only requiring 4-6 ingredients (depending on if you coat them in chocolate…but, really, that’s not an option). Unlike truffles, they’re dairy free and naturally sweetened only with dates! BUT, while we’re on the topic. Names like “energy balls/bites” are a great…

Browned Butter Hazelnut Chocolate Chip Cookies with Sea Salt

Browned Butter Hazelnut Chocolate Chip Cookies with Sea Salt

Oh yeah. That’s quite the name. And I hesitated even calling them that for fear that the name would be somewhat intimidating and deter you from making them. But really. They’re just chocolate chip cookies with the substitution of browned butter for softened butter and the addition of hazelnuts and some flaked sea salt. Yet necessary substitutions and additions. John is officially done with the Whole30. Well I guess, in this case, the Whole27. We spent the weekend visiting his…

Gluten Free Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars

Gluten Free Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars

So should we talk about the fact that I’ve been MIA for 3/4 of a year? Yeah? Well this cease in absence is a declaration of my commitment to balance my life with more “me” time. Cue: this post about these gluten free, vegan chocolate chip cookies bars.   Why these healthy little bites? Let’s speculate: maybe we indulged a bit too much over the holiday season? Maybe we really shouldn’t have had that other serving, cookie, cocktail, etc? How about…

Chocolate Chunk Browned Butter Honey Peanut Butter Cookies

Chocolate Chunk Browned Butter Honey Peanut Butter Cookies

I think the whole chocolate and peanut butter combo is quite boring and dry. Mundane, really. It’s so predictably wonderful. It’s a classically indulgent pair. It’s so classic that it magically becomes one word: Chocolatepeanutbutter. However, as of late I have found myself infatuated with the idea of savory ingredients being incorporated into dessert. Like tahini or black pepper or spinach. (Note to self: remember those for the future.) Yet. Chocolatepeanutbutter will forever be one of my favorites. And a favorite…

Banana Bread Blondies

Banana Bread Blondies

I said this a few weeks ago on instagram, and it still holds true: I appreciate that overly ripe bananas serve as a deadline. It’s like they’re saying, “you’ve neglected me for long enough. Now make me into something wonderful.” They’re patient at first, like “ok you have plenty of days to enjoy me…on your cereal, with some peanut butter, or just by myself as a snack” Then it feels like they start yelling at me, ‘use me!!” Well, they’re…
