Kale Junkie Chocolate Crinkle Cookies!

I absolutely adore this recipe from Kale Junkie!

As with all of her cookie recipes, it is delicious and easy to make! I highly recommend this recipe for Holiday Cookie baskets!! ❤️❤️

I made the cookies super big for these pictures but for the gift baskets, I will bake much smaller cookies!

Granola Butter and Chocolate Chip Cookies

This recipe features one of my favorite products: Kween and Co granola butter. I have talked about granola butter before. It is a spreadable nut and seed free butter made using oats. It is so delicious! It’s great spread on toast, waffles, pancakes, fruit and dessert.

These cookies are delicious!

1/4 cup vanilla granola butter

2 TB ghee

4 TB maple syrup

1/8 tsp vanilla

1 egg

3/4 cup almond flour

1/2 cup arrowroot

1/2 cup oats

1/8 tsp sea salt

1/2 tsp baking soda

1/2 cup chocolate chips (I used Hu Kitchen gems)

Have all ingredients at room temperature.

Melt ghee over very low heat and pour into a mixing bowl to cool. Once its no longer hot, add granola butter, maple syrup, vanilla and egg and whisk together. Make sure to combine the ingredients very well.

Whisk together the almond flour, arrowroot, oats, sea salt and baking soda. Fold the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients in two additions. Fold in the chocolate chips. Cover the mixing bowl or remove the dough to a silicone (or plastic) bag and refrigerate for at least 2 hours (or overnight).

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Remove the dough from the refrigerator and scoop or spoon balls onto a parchment paper (or silpat) lined baking sheet.

Bake for 9-13 minutes (depending on the size of your cookies). Remove from the oven and let cookies sit on the baking sheet for 5 minutes. Remove to a plate, rack or serving board. Enjoy!

Birch Benders Vanilla Waffles

I love Birch Benders paleo pancake/waffle mixes!! Check out these cookies using their pumpkin paleo mix. They are delicious, quick and easy! I absolutely love this brand!

This is my go to waffle recipe using Birch Benders!

Vanilla Birch Benders Waffles:

1 package paleo birch benders mix

2 scoops collagen peptides

1/8 tsp sea salt

1/4 cup avocado oil

3 TB maple syrup

1/2 tsp vanilla extract

2 3/4 cups milk (I used Good Mylk almond milk)

optional: add some cinnamon and freeze dried blueberries!!

Whisk the dry ingredients together. Whisk the wet ingredients together. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and whisk to combine. Cook in a waffle maker!

This recipe makes about 10 waffles and they freeze well. Reheat in a toaster or 350 degree oven.


Chocolate Pumpkin Cookies

These cookies are so yum! They are quick and easy to make and feature two of my favorite brands: Your Super and Birch Benders.

Makes 7 small cookies:


Have all ingredients at room temperature. Preheat oven to 350.

Cream cashew butter with a large wooden spoon or spatula until smooth. Add maple syrup and cream together. Add egg yolk, vanilla and sea salt and cream until well combined. Stir in pancake mix.

Refrigerate for 20 minutes. Remove from the refrigerator and use a portion scoop or your hands and a spoon to form the cookies. Place the cookies on a parchment or Silpat lined baking sheet and bake for 12 minutes (if you make your cookies larger than mine, they will need more baking time). Remove from the oven and let sit on the baking sheet for 10 minutes. Remove to a plate/serving tray and enjoy!

Granola Butter

I love Kween Granola Butter!! The vanilla and chocolate ones are my favorites. They are a maple syrup sweetened spreadable non-nut/seed butter.

Granola butter is fantastic on top of pancakes, French toast, fruit and any sweet treat. I love to store mine in the refrigerator and eat it straight from the jar.

One of my favorite things to do is to stir chopped dark chocolate into the vanilla one, then refrigerate it until it hardens. And voila… Chocolate chip cookie dough!!

I used Four Sigmatic chocolate in the below pictures.

AWG Bakery

I am super impressed with AWG Bakery’s breads. They have three flavors (everyday, rosemary and cinnaspice) all are organic and gluten-free. I highly recommend placing an order!

Use for all your sandwich, French toast and other bread needs. I really love a piece toasted in the oven then drizzled with extra virgin olive oil and sprinkled with sea salt.

Good Mylk Co.

I love Good Mylk‘s almond and hemp milks. Ingredients are: organic almonds or hemp seeds, water and ancient mineral salt. They have a sweetened option that contains organic date syrup.  Good Mylk comes as a frozen concentrate that you add water to (and vanilla, if you want). They also have an almond milk creamer that is fantastic for traveling. I highly recommend purchasing some!
