Rise and shine! You don’t have to get up at the crack of dawn to enjoy fresh free-from muffins. Just add water and oil to Enjoy Life's ready-to-use mix, and breakfast is looking pretty delicious.Baking on a restricted diet can be difficult at times... especially in the beginning. I remember how overwhelming it seemed when I had to learn how to read labels, learn to bake all over again with substitutions, and then learn how to shop find new & safe brands to buy! Thankfully, I found Enjoy Life Foods early on. Enjoy Life Foods is one of my favorite allergy-friendly brands! Their whole philosophy is about forfeiting the bad stuff without giving up taste or texture. Love that! I always have in my pantry a few bags of their chocolate chips, a box or two of cookies and my son, Xander, loves their bars! They recently came out with a few boxed mixes and so I just had to try them out. Typically, I would bake from scratch but sometimes, it's nice to have a mix handy (just in case), especially when you're new to baking allergy-friendly.
Chocolate Zucchini Muffins. Healthy for breakfast yet indulgent enough for dessert. Vegan. No nuts, dairy, eggs or refined sugar....
For years, the kids would help make the cake and decorate it but as they are getting older their calendars are now full of activities and sports and I've started making the cake on my own. I'm pretty sure I could still make it happen and have them help, but I kinda like the quiet in the kitchen and being able to have a cake without funfetti sprinkles or multi-colored globs of icing everywhere.
It's beginning to smell a lot like Christmas.......in my home that is.
The scent of cocoa, chocolate & mint are swirling in the air and making me really hungry!
It IS my fault since I'm the one baking these sweet delights, but I absolutely LOVE the smell of fresh-baked cookies, don't you?
I also absolutely LOVE eating fresh-baked cookies, especially chocolate minty ones, like these Chocolate Crinkle Cookies.
What makes them extra special, is the minty flavor, which I think makes them even more Holiday-ish (I know that's not officially a word, but it works, right?).
Pumpkin & spice and everything nice, that's what these cookies are made of. Allergy friendly (vegan) Pumpkin Snickerdoodles, sprinkled with seasonal spices. Gluten & nut-free....
