Flourless Gingerbread Cookies

Holy Christmas, I have struck gingerbread GOLD! These cookies are everything. A Christmas party right in your mouth. Molasses, ginger, cinnamon… warm, light, and fluffy. These cookies are pure perfection. I have been trying to think of a recipe that included peanut butter so that I could incorporate my Wild Friends Gingerbread PB… but I didn’t want the cookies to be dense. Solution? Almond flour. The almond flour brings a nutty flavor to the cookie and made it LIGHT AS AIR. You know how Krispey Kreme doughnuts are so light that it feels like you’re eating air? THAT’S WHAT THESE

Cinnamon Baked Pears with Walnuts

Anything with cinnamon just screams ‘cozy’ to me. Let alone if it’s warm and baked! Baked pears will always be a favorite breakfast of mine. It is more like a treat, actually! Perfectly sweet with a little bit of spice and crunch. Wrap up in a comfy blanket, pour yourself a hot cup of coffee, and dive into this delicious dish. Honey is normally called for a recipe like this, but I didn’t want the extra sweetness! Instead, I drizzled fresh almond milk on top for some extra moisture and it was perfect. A couple awesome facts about pears is

Golden Milk

If you’ve never heard of golden milk, you’re in for treat – a delicious one. It is one of my favorite night time drinks (other than tea). What makes it golden? I’m glad you asked. Turmeric! This B.A. spice contains many nutrients, particularly in antioxidants, anti-inflammatory, and anti-carcinogenic (cancer fighting) agents. This drink is so warm and comforting, peppery, and has the right amount of richness thanks to the coconut oil. Whip this up before bedtime and start to drift off… (after that glass of vino, of course). It has been a super busy week (good busy). New things happening

Honeycrisp Apple Sangria

Ooooooo baby, it’s FRIYAY! And it is also Sam and I’s 4-year anniversary! Crazy how time flies. To celebrate, I thought I would make the perfect fall drink! This drink is everything that fall is: crisp, delicious, cinnamony (that’s a word, right?), and full of color and flavor! You’re gonna wanna save this whole pitcher for yourself. At least I did. But I mean, it is our anniversary, so I shared 😉 Honeycrisp apples are the crème de la crème to Fall. Favorite apple by far (sorry, Granny Smith). I could live off of these bad boys. This delicious ball

Morning Elixir

Mornings are my favorite time of the day. They bring a sense of new beginnings and freshness. And they are also extremely productive. I swear I can get more done in 5 minutes in the morning than in the afternoon. I don’t know what it is, but I promise it’s true.  Mornings, from a health perspective, allow you to hit the restart button. So why not start your day with a quick, healthy cleanse? Warm lemon water with ginger, cinnamon, and turmeric. It revitalizes and wakes your body up! Try drinking this every morning and watch your skin start to glow, body lean-out,

Homemade Cinnamon Popcorn

Popcorn is always a go-to snack for me. I absolutely love it! However, I hate when it is soaked in butter and salt. It makes me feel groggy and slow after eating it. Not willing to give up my favorite snack, I figured out a healthier alternative! Brown bag popcorn. It’s as easy as it sounds. Simply throw popcorn kernels, oil, and whatever seasoning you prefer into a brown paper bag. Put the bag into the microwave and voila! Time to start the movie and demolish this delicious bag of popcorn. I love cinnamon on just about everything, but wasn’t quite

Coconut & Almond Flour Banana Bread

When my man asks for banana bread, he GETS banana bread! I think banana bread is a staple in every household, so finding the perfect (and healthy!) recipe was a top priority. I am happy to announce that I have succeeded at such a task because OMGGG this is drool worthy! Tomorrow Sam starts his first day of fall semester for medical school… (silently screams). Every Sunday is a little lazy, but we made sure this particular one was extra lazy. Slept in, enjoyed our cinnamon hazelnut coffee together (killer), watched Netflix, shopped, and obviously we (I) baked! Moist, nutty, flavorful,
