White Chocolate Banana Cookies

We are about to head to Disney World for vacation, and I am trying to use up what I have on hand.  That’s how these White Chocolate Banana Cookies came about. I had some leftover vegan white chocolate chips from my White Chocolate Raspberry Squares, so I thought this was a perfect way to use them up.  After all, white chocolate and banana go so well together!  If you can’t find vegan white chocolate chips, you can most definitely use regular chocolate chips instead.  Macadamia nuts may also by another yummy option.  The best part about this recipe is it has just 4 simple ingredients!

These cookies are vegan, gluten free and healthy enough for breakfast!  The optional add ins are endless.  I think some shredded coconut would be delish in here personally.  Then again, I love all things coconut.

Gluten Free Pumpkin Muffins (Vegan)

Gluten Free Pumpkin Muffins.  Do you like pumpkin?  We eat it all year round.  My husband likes to take muffins to work and I usually make these muffins, but I only had a small amount of oat flour.

So I decided to tweak the recipe a bit and make these Healthy Pumpkin Muffins.  Not only are these healthy pumpkin muffins gluten free, but they also come with an extra boost of protein and fiber!


Gluten Free Pumpkin Muffins


I used 1 1/2 cups chickpea flour to make up for the oat flour I didn’t have.  Did you know that 1 1/2 cups chickpea flour contains about 31 grams of protein and 15 grams of fiber?

You can read the complete nutritional facts in this source.  It worked as a great replacement!

Chocolate Coffee Cookies (Grain Free)

Chocolate Coffee Cookies.  The other day I made some Grain Free Sugar Cookies.  I was so pleased with the way they came out, that I decided to make a chocolate version. Since chocolate and coffee go so well together, I made this new recipe. Coffee cookies.

I knew it was going to be a winner, when I couldn’t stop eating the batter!  That is one thing I love about vegan cookies.  The dough is completely safe to eat! 🙂

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.
