Gluten-Free Dairy-Free Almond Shortbread

GLUTEN-FREE DAIRY-FREE ALMOND SHORTBREAD First off…this is not completely my recipe – I found it on King Arthur’s Flour website, here.  But I did tweak it a bit and made it dairy-free, also. I have my own almond flour shortbread recipe here,  but it does have flour and real butter. The texture of these is soft…

Love them from your oven…

OATMEAL-PRO BREAKFAST BARS I remade a classic Oatmeal Cookie recipe into a protein breakfast bar that is full of fiber and other tasty things, just right to keep you going til lunch.  Yes, it’s high in carbs, but they are the stick-to-your-ribs type and should give you a slow burn to keep you from crashing…

Yes, please!

ALMOND QUINOA PROTEIN GRANOLA BALLS I do love my No Bake Protein Cookies…yes, I do.  But, for some people (and I can’t believe I’m saying this out loud) chocolate isn’t wanted.  These are full of good-for-you carbs and not too sweet. These are prefect for mid-afternoon cravings and have enough protein to hold you over…

Just one Oatmeal Cookie…no flour!

“JUST ONE” OATMEAL COOKIE Snack attack?  Urgent Sweet tooth?  Need a quick cup-of-coffee-partner?  Whatever the need or whenever it rises here’s a fast treat that won’t have you battling a full cookie jar!   If oatmeal isn’t your thing, you’ll find my “Just One” Peanut Butter Cookie HERE!  (And if you want a larger batch…ingredient…

Are these YOUR favorite?

SUGAR FREE “CADBURY” EGGS  I have to say, they aren’t MY fave.  I prefer a caramel-chocolate-nutty-coconut thingy instead of the super-sweet-make-your-teeth-ache candies.  But a friend requested these and here they are! Kind of hard to work with, as the ooey-gooey filling (which makes them so yummy to folks!) is soft and hard to mold.  A…

Get your caramel on.

CARAMEL LAYER COOKIE BARS No such thing as too many cookies…so here ya’ go. These were created to use with Cinnamon Bliss…one of my favorite things on earth.  You can find it in this link at Amazon.com and a little goes a long way, so the jug will last awhile.  If you can’t find it…

Holiday Cookies! My favorite Molasses-Spice one…ever.

GINGER-MOLASSES COOKIES If you want crispy, crinkly, snappy ginger cookies, these aren’t them.  But soft, chewy-cakey, velvety?  Gotcha covered. This is my favorite spice cookie and it gets BETTER as it ‘ages’.  Make these a couple days ahead of when you want to serve them, wrap tightly, and put away for a sweet nap.  So…

Bakery-beautiful from your own oven..

RASPBERRY CRUMB BARS I adore these bars! Sweet jam baked until bubbly on an almond-pecan shortbread crust and topped with spicy crumbs…what’s not to love?! Raspberry is wonderful, but you could make several different flavors and present them on a gorgeous platter for parties or tea…or gorgeously boxed for a friend. ~~~~     Vegetable…

No-Bake cookie…with added pro? Hmmm…

NO-BAKE CHOCOLATE-OATMEAL PROTEIN COOKIE This is that old standard, no-bake cookie recipe that’s been around for a 100-some years – too yummy to pass up, full of complex whole-grains, and I’ve added a big scoop of protein powder to squash the guilt a bit! Adding some chopped nuts, or unsweetened coconut…even a bit of wheat…

Cookie Emergency? Here’s your fix…

“JUST ONE” PEANUT BUTTER COOKIE Next time you are in the need for a quick – and I mean QUICK – dessert from the oven, but don’t want a dozen laying in wait, this will be perfect.  This is an old favorite…been around forever, but worth repeating. I’ll give the recipe for the whole batch…

Blonde IS more fun…

PEANUT BRITTLE …when it’s in the form of this golden, peanut-studded and buttery candy! This is the recipe that was from the Steel’s Nature Sweet flyer (they called for pecans) that I received when I first became aware of this product…and if sugar alcohols don’t bother you, it is wonderful to use.  I can’t eat…

Dark, smooth, rich…sugar free chocolate truffles

CHOCOLATE TRUFFLES I love dark chocolate!  And in my sugar-free life I still need it.  These little beauties will satisfy that urge in a creamy-dreamy way.  Using the flavored syrups will give you unlimited flavors, also. I created this recipe (specifically for use with the Valor sugar free chocolate) long before I realized they were…
