These gluten free cookie dough bites are a family favorite. Nuts, chocolate, no bake–what could be better?Read More
It’s campfire season here in our neck of the woods, and what’s a campfire without s’mores?
Unfortunately most marshmallows, graham crackers and a certain popular brand of chocolate bar land squarely in the category of processed junk.
Not to worry, you can make your own! Homemade marshmallows have beenRead More
It does seem kind of strange to be thinking of ice cream with snow on the ground outside, but I’ve been wanting to experiment with an ice cream maker for some time now. When a friend offered me the $50 Cuisinart Ice-20 she spotted at a thrift store for $9, I said “yes, please”!
Here’s a fun and easy idea for a special treat that your whole family will love: Banana Dippers.
Banana Dippers are like the humble country cousin of the more dignified Chocolate Fondue: something yummy dipped in melted chocolate. Plus, they make an easy gluten-free dessert.
I suppose there are a few people in this world who do not like chocolate, but none of them live at my house. We love our chocolate here at the Yankee Homestead!
And what, I ask you, goes better with chocolate than peanut butter?
Technically, you could use any nut butter in this recipe. For those with nut allergies, I’m guessing sunbutter would work, too. (If you try that, please let me know how it turns out!)
This recipe is easy, delicious and fairly healthy, depending on how much honey you use and how much fudge you consume! 🙂
Oh my goodness, these bars are so good, and so easy to make! They are perfect as dessert, they pack very well for meals or treats on-the-go, and–packed full of protein–they make an excellent snack for pregnant and nursing mothers.
Whether you are required to live without dairy–as I am–or you simply ran out of milk and are craving hot chocolate, this recipe is for you!
I’ve tried a bunch of ways of making hot chocolate without real milk, and this is by far the best yet. This recipe was pieced together from several recipes I’ve read and tried. Feel free to experiment with the ingredients!
Fall is in the air, which of course makes us want to bake all sorts of pumpkin goodies. Here’s a healthy version of one of my all-time favorite pumpkin treats: Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies. Sweetened with honey, liquid stevia and mashed banana, these pumpkin cookies are free of refined sugar as well as gluten. Almond flour packs a nutritional punch and orange extract (or essential oil!) rounds out the flavor.
Happy fall, y’all!
This recipe is so easy, and so tasty. You might also like to know how fantastic it tastes cold, straight from the fridge. Especially while your children are resting upstairs and you’re all alone downstairs. Just a thought.
Plus it’s a perfect way to use up all the zucchini from your garden or CSA…
