Truth be told I’ve never considered myself to be a cheesecake lovah. I’m more into pies, cookies, or basically anything else that’s sweet.

But when my friend Gina sent me her Skinnytaste Fast and Slow Cookbook a few months ago, I knew I wanted to share these easy, mini no bake cheesecakes with you. In Gina’s cookbook, she calls them shooters and serves them in adorable shot glasses.

My Godparents have a wonderful red quaint little cabin overlooking a huge lake in northern Minnesota. There’s a tiny plot of sand in the back and two docks that extend to look out to where people go boating and jet-skiing. Many of my favorite memories as a child were there, including most of the summertime holidays like Memorial Day and 4th of July.

Easy, one bowl maple peanut butter cookies made with only 5 simple ingredients. Grain free, gluten free and dairy free. Only 20 minutes from start to finish.

Confession: These could be the easiest cookies I have on the blog. It’s almost a no brainer recipe that you can’t mess up. And guess what? These cookies are gluten free, grain free and dairy free, so if you’re looking for a cookie that meets that criteria, then these are for you.

Actually wait, if you happen to love peanut butter, then these are for you. And if you don’t love peanut butter, then simply use cashew or almond butter. Told you they were easy.

Pistachio muffins made with homemade (and easy!) pistachio and oat flour, then topped with an easy scrumptious strawberry glaze. Vegan and gluten free too!

Happy Monday, loves. I hope you had a fantastic weekend.

Sometimes I never know how to start these posts other than to tell you about the days that seem to pass by too quickly. These few weeks have flown by as I developed and shot nearly 10 recipes. I’m traveling on an off for the next few weeks so I wanted to be prepared with recipes to share with you now that Spring is almost here.

By the way, Tony and I are headed to Sedona this weekend, so if you have any cool hiking recommendations, please let me know in the comments below. I so appreciate it (and you!).

Peanut butter protein bars made with simple, healthy ingredients like oats, peanut butter, chia seed, coconut and protein powder. Drizzled with chocolate and a little sea salt. Truly the ultimate protein bar because you can easily make it your own!

When I was first learning how to refuel my body after a workout, I would grab whatever snack was available in the gym’s vending machine. At the time, no one told me that reading the ingredients was very important; it was 2009, and everyone was still on the low-fat diet craze. Clearly the gym I was a member of didn’t know any better, or just didn’t care.

I remembering gobbling down the bars with weird ingredients: crunchy rice, fake fiber and sugar, and most likely a terrible protein source. Shortly after the bars with insane amounts of fiber came on the scene; they were filled with fiber that isn’t even found in nature, but rather made in a lab. Those sketchy mofos.

Grain Free Almond Flour Chocolate Sugar Cookies — this easy one bowl cookie recipe can be made into cut out shapes or rolled into dough balls! Top with a silky velvet chocolate frosting if you’d like.

Tony and I snuggled in last night to watch the big game and munched on pepper jack cheese cubes, these paleo chocolate sugar cookies and some amazing sprouted grain tortilla chips. It was a hectic weekend for us, and all we wanted to do was relax at home with endless snack options and an amazing Lady Gaga halftime show. (Seriously, it was SOOOO good!)

Before we talk all about these sweetheart cookies with fabulous silky velvet buttercream, I must tell you about a little incident that occurred over the weekend.
