I used cashew butter as the base because I really love the subtle flavor and buttery texture of it.  If you need to make this nut free, you can certainly use sunflower butter instead. This fudge has a lovely, creamy texture with hints of cinnamon and sweetness from the maple syrup.

Snickerdoodle Caramel Ice Cream (Vegan)

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.

Paleo Apple Cobbler (Vegan and Gluten Free)

Paleo Apple CobblerApple desserts are my most favorite desserts.  This paleo and vegan apple Cobbler is my new favorite!

I already had one healthy apple cobbler recipe on my blog, but I wanted to create a grain free version, so that is where the inspiration came for this.

I used pecans in the bottom crust layer, and they really go fantastic with the apples and cinnamon.  Slow cooking the apples first allows much more natural sugar to develop, so there is not too much need for a lot of added sugar.

This is absolutely delicious topped with some coconut whip cream.

Flourless Cinnamon Pecan Cookies

I have been on a flourless cookie kick lately.  These cinnamon pecan cookies are my latest creation.  These flourless cinnamon pecan cookies are so good and they have no added sugar!  Yep.  These delicious cookies are sweetened only with dates!   I made a caramel out of the dates and it was so good.  The recipe is similar to my flourless salted caramel chocolate chip cookies and my toasted coconut caramel cookies.

If you like the taste of pecan pie, then you will like these little cookies.  This recipe makes a small batch so you don’t have to worry about having a lot of extra cookies in the house.  These cookies are vegan, gluten free, grain free and paleo friendly.

Cinnamon Roasted Pumpkin Seeds

It’s been raining here on almost every weekend lately.  So yesterday we finally got around to getting the girls a pumpkin to carve.


My 4 year old is grossed out by the “guts”, but my 2 year old loved sticking her hands in and pulling out the seeds.  While they were carving, I was cleaning off the seeds to roast.  I got all the stringy stuff off and then gave them a good rinse.  After that, I set them out to dry overnight.  Today I roasted them and they are so good.  My house smelled like Fall.  This recipe kind of reminds me of my Maple Cinnamon Roasted Chickpeas.

These are pretty addicting.  I made them in under 35 minutes.  Real simple recipe.
