I’m fairly sure I know exactly what you’re thinking – do we really need one more treat recipe? I’m going to go ahead and say that yes, when it’s a recipe for these chocolate coconut almond bliss balls, the answer is most definitely yes.

Because this is not your ordinary treat recipe. These little bliss balls are:

A) Dairy free

B) Naturally sweetened

C) Made with only 6 ingredients, two of which are vanilla extract and sea salt

D) Waaaaay easier to make than they seem (read: option to appear fancy AF at your next gathering without doing anything more difficult than making the easiest cookie recipe)

BOOM. So much more to offer than your ordinary truffle.

Perfect Grain Free Gingersnap Cookies {gluten free}

TIS THE SEASON! For mistletoe, snow, fine company, and cookies!!! I am obsessed with these perfect grain free gingersnap cookies and so excited to share them with you for your healthier holiday baking party.

Perfect grain free gingersnap cookies! Made with chickpea flour. Perfectly spiced, tender and chewy.
 
I think it’s officially safe to say that we’re in the final stretch of holiday baking, and I’m going to sneak this perfect little grain free gingersnap cookie right into the mix because I just know you guys are going to love them. They are chewy, full of gingery spiced flavor, just sweet enough, and totally GRAIN FREE! Because with all the indulgence that comes along with the holidays, it’s always nice to add some healthier notes to the mix.

What’s the flour I used you might ask? Chickpea flour! This stuff is seriously amazing. If you’ve never tried baking / cooking / playing around with it in the kitchen, I highly recommend picking up a bag and getting busy!

Honestly, some of my favorite grain free cookies that I’ve ever made are with chickpea flour. There’s just something about the simplicity of it and the texture that it lends that are so so good. So good that you probably wouldn’t even notice the healthy flour swap if you didn’t know. I’ve made some salted mocha chocolate cookies (so delish!) with chickpea flour on the blog before if you want another cookie recipe idea for that bag of chickpea flour that you’re about to pick up. And another great place to get ideas is on the ever-so-talented blog of Dolly and Oatmeal. She actually has a cookbook called Chickpea Flour Does It All and while I don’t own the cookbook (yet! it’s on the Christmas list 😉) I have made some of the recipes from the cookbook that she’s shared on her blog and they have all been amaze.

Paleo Maple Pecan Scones {paleo + gluten free}

Before this recipe I didn’t even know it was possible to have paleo scones that tasted this good! Holy moly guys. They are something really special, and I’m so so excited to share the goodness of these paleo maple pecan scones with you!

These paleo maple pecan scones are a totally decadent and healthy swap for the bakery shop classic! Brimming with nutty maple flavor and totally refined sugar free. 
 
Back a few years ago before I gave up gluten and made such a major lifestyle change, a maple pecan scone bakery shop score was life to me. They represent all the best things about a coffee date treat –> Tender, a little flaky, slightly crisp on the edges and brimming with nutty pecan maple flavor. YAAAS. Tell me you feel the same.

But then I gave up gluten (and waved farewell to my maple pecan loving scone days), because:

Health > Treats.

(for realz)

But what if I told you that you could have BOTH?! Yep.I think I’ve cracked the code. Health AND treats.

Specifically these deeee-licious paleo maple pecan scones. Because after 3 (maybe 4?) batches they are so ready for your grain free coffee dates + holiday gatherings.
