Carrot Cake Muffins

It may be a little early, but I’m so excited to repost my Carrot Cake Muffins recipe! These Carrot Cake Muffins are my favorite spring treat. Like all of my dessert recipes, they are also super easy to make! All you need to do is blend the ingredients (I used my Vitamix blender), place into muffin tins, and bake for 15 minutes. Allow them to cool, and top with the coconut cream topping, which only requires you to blend 2 ingredients to make.

It’s about that time of year for Girl Scout Cookies. I love Girl Scout Cookies and my all time favorite flavor is Samoa.

Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Well by Mel

✨Healthy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies✨ Fun Fact: when I was younger oatmeal raisin were my favorite cookies, but none of the other kids ever liked them because they were “healthy” cookies. The other day, out of curiosity, I looked up oatmeal raisin recipes and realized there is nothing healthy about them! So I decided to make my own. Warning: these are addicting!

Unlike most oatmeal raisin cookie recipes that are made with white flour and refined sugar, this recipe is made with real food ingredients, gluten free, and rich in fiber.

Gluten – Free Sweet Potato Gnocchi

Well by Mel

Are you a sweet potato or a regular potato person? I personally love sweet potatoes! You can make them savory, you can make them sweet – they are such a delicious add to meals!

My favorite type of pasta is gnocchi but I don’t eat regular gnocchi too often because I generally avoid gluten. I’ve found Trader Joe’s cauliflower gnocchi to be a great substitute; however, I personally like making foods from scratch as often as possible in order to control what ingredients and how much of each ingredient are put into my food.

I’ve made this sweet potato gnocchi a few times now and it is great! It’s a lot easier to make than you would think. This recipe is both gluten free and vegan. The key ingredient in this recipe is Cassava flour.

Thai- Inspired Peanut Spaghetti Squash

Well by Mel

I’m a huge fan of spaghetti squash, so I’m loving that it’s in season right now. I usually cook it with tomato sauces for more of an Italian dish. However, I also really like to cook with spaghetti squash for more Asian-inspired dishes.

I love making this recipe because it tastes like Thai-food, but a much lighter version. This recipe is made with lots a veggies and topped with a peanut sauce. It is gluten free, dairy free, and can be made soy free.
