These super scrumpdidlyicious healthy Banana Chocolate Chip Pancakes are made from only seven ingredients. That includes the coconut oil in which you sauté them. The base of these pancakes (one of my super easy breakfast recipes) is cashews –that’s right, no flour, not even almond flour.
Replacing high-carb wheat flour with lower-carb cashews is fantastic for those watching their blood sugar. Cashews also work well in baking (see my Cashew Bread recipe) for folks who are gluten-free, which is another reason I use them.
While these quick and easy pancakes are a fantastic breakfast on a weekend morning, I also like to serve them along with an egg dish on Sunday nights for dinner. Breakfast for dinner is a family favorite in our house, and the boys especially appreciate the change in routine.

My mother-in-law (aka Grandma Marylyn) is obsessed with all things crispy, crunchy, and Paleo. Like me, she has celiac disease and has followed a strict gluten-free diet for years. I created this Crispy Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe just for her. Grandma Marylyn is a huge fan of my Cranberry Chocolate Biscotti, as well as my Chocolate Orange Scones, and presents me with freshly made batches of each of these every time we have a visit.
Grandma has been asking me for years to develop a thin and crispy cookie recipe. She has no idea that I’ve created these Paleo chocolate chip cookies for her!

This high protein, Dairy-Free Chocolate Mousse is made with anti-oxidant rich dark chocolate and contains no dairy products –a double win. I’ve also used coconut palm sugar to sweeten it.
Summer is moving along for us over here. The boys made over $300 at their lemonade stand last weekend during the Mapleton Hill rummage sale. They ran the stand with 2 other friends and baked tons of cookies from scratch for their little business. I was so proud of them. Maybe ... read more →

For those of you that have leftover zucchini from your gardens, here is a delicious gluten free zucchini chocolate chip mini muffin recipe. Our garden is just petering out with the severe frost we had last weekend and I need to get going on pulling up all the wilted plants from the yard.
Meanwhile, with this colder weather I’ve been a baking fiend and my family is fully taking advantage of this, loading themselves up with gluten free goodies.

Kelly over at Celiac Chicks does a fabulous job covering the latest in gluten-free news. On top of that, she is a lovely person. It has been great getting to know her through our email conversations these past few months.
I recently spent some time looking through the recipe section of Kelly’s site and was most intrigued by these delicious looking peanut butter bars. She traces the original recipe back to one from 2003 in Family Circle magazine. Of course, she ... read more →
