Flourless Lemon Poppy Seed Cookies

I love lemons.  They can brighten up the flavors in any recipe, both sweet and savory. From ice creams to salads, lemons can definitely shine.  Lemon is truly the star in these Flourless Lemon Poppy Seed Cookies.  They are bursting with lemony flavors that do not disappoint! I also highly recommend making my lemon blueberry cookies!

Morning Glory Breakfast Cookies

Have you ever had Morning Glory Breakfast Cookies? Or maybe morning glory muffins?  They are very similar to carrot cake muffins or carrot cake breakfast cookies.  Today I am super excited to bring you this particular morning glory recipe since it’s totally grain-free!  I used chickpeas as a base and they turned out great.

Snickerdoodle Caramel Ice Cream

Do you love snickerdoodles?  Or caramel?  I have combined both those delicious flavors to create this Snickerdoodle Caramel Ice Cream.  This snickerdoodle ice cream is bursting with flavor from the cinnamon and maple syrup + it has a scrumptious caramel throughout.  Have you ever checked the ingredient list on store bought ice cream?  Seems to me there are a lot of unnecessary ingredients in it.  Store bought ice cream is also usually really expensive.  This homemade ice cream recipe is super easy to make yourself.

I used full fat canned coconut milk to make this ice cream recipe.  It’s very important to use the full fat coconut milk to get that rich flavor that traditional ice cream has.  You can use almond or cashew milk, but keep in mind that the end product will be slightly icy in texture. If you are okay with that, feel free to use any milk you like.
