Frosted Carrot Cake Bars

My husband is a huge fan of carrot cake.  I have already made some carrot cake larabars and also a carrot cake baked oatmeal, but I decided to try some Frosted Carrot Cake Bars.  I don’t even like carrot cake, but I thought these came out really good!  They are so easy to make too.  No cooking required!

Paleo Magic Bars (Vegan & GF)

Do you like magic bars?  I made Paleo Magic Bars for you!   These Paleo Magic Bars are also vegan and gluten free.   The other day on my Facebook page, I asked about holiday treats.  A lot of people mentioned magic bars.

I had actually never even heard of magic bars before.  So I had to look them up.  The original magic bars are loaded with processed ingredients.  Well I knew I could  find a way to clean them up a bit.


Paleo Magic Bars - My Whole Food Life

What is a magic bar you ask?  It’s basically a graham cracker crust, with a caramel in the middle and then it’s topped with coconut, chocolate chips and nuts.  I used a pecan crust since graham crackers are not exactly a whole food.

I made a cleaner version of it for you.  I must say that even though my recipe is less processed, it is still indulgent and should be eaten in small amounts.  It is very rich.  My husband called these bars, the gift that keeps on giving.  Lol.  I guess he liked them. 😉

Homemade Cookie Butter Recipe

Homemade Cookie Butter.  Have you tried cookie butter?  It’s traditionally made from Biscoff cookies.

I have never actually had the store bought version of cookie butter.  Mostly because I am afraid I would eat the entire jar in one sitting haha!

The store bought cookie butter also does not have a clean ingredient list.  So I sought out to make some homemade cookie butter.  This stuff is awesome!!

I had to find something to mimic the buttery texture of the Biscoff cookies, so I chose cashews.  I have used cashews as a base in many of my flourless cookie recipes and it’s worked out great.

So I knew they would be great here.  This homemade cookie butter is vegan, gluten free and paleo approved.  It contains no refined sugars.

I am thinking about using it in some upcoming dessert recipes.  Maybe truffles.  I also had some with my 5 minute banana ice cream today and it was amazing!

Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookies (Vegan)

I made you cookies!  Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookies. The other day I shared a Healthier Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe.  They were not gluten free cookies.

It was a recipe I had created a while back.  Nowadays, I am doing more and more gluten free baking, so I thought I would try a gluten free chocolate chip cookie recipe as well.  These healthy chocolate chip cookies came out better than I expected.
