Mint Chocolate Smoothie (Paleo, DF, GF, Nut Free option)

IT’S SMOOTHIE SEASON!!!! 🎉 ARE YOU READY for my thickest, creamiest, dreamiest smoothie EVER?! I am completely obsessed. I literally dream about this smoothie.

Peppermint Brownies (Paleo, Grain Free, Gluten Free, Dairy Free)

Is there a more iconic Christmastime duo than chocolate and peppermint? Gingerbread is in it to win it, but chocolate/peppermint takes the cake. I even did a poll on instagram (do you follow me there? Click HERE) and peppermint won!

These brownies are everything I need at Christmas and heck, any time of year. They taste like a chocolate dipped candy cane and that’s really all you need to know. The best part is they’re completely free of refined sugar, dairy, grains, glutens… all the weird stuff. And you seriously won’t be able to tell they are paleo. They’re that good.

Chocolate Protein Chia Seed Pudding

Chia seed pudding is a gift to humanity. I’ll admit- the first time I tried it I wasn’t into it. I think it’s because my expectations were off kilter. I expected “puddin’ cups” when I should have been expecting tapioca pudding. Have you ever had tapioca pudding? My grandfather LOVED it so it evokes a really sweet memory for me. Chia seed pudding is very similar to tapioca, but a little more crunch.

Chia seeds are not only delicious, they are extremely nutrient dense! They are a powerhouse in a tiny package- like Smurfs. Chia seeds boast 20% protein content, more fiber than flax seeds, high omega-3 fatty acids, as well as high quantities of calcium, phosphorous, and magnesium. You can ready more about their heart healthy benefits in this study I referenced here.

Perfect Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookies

I have been working on this recipe for over a year and it has given me such a hard time! It was too dry, it was too crumbly, it was too grainy, it was too cake like, it wasn’t sweet enough… Well, my friends, she’s finally ready!

Beware: make these cookies and you become a danger to yourself and others. It’s impossible to keep your hands off of them! They are simply delicious and are made with real, whole food, minimally processed ingredients. Nut free friends: I haven’t tried but I bet these can be made with gluten free or brown rice flour. Please let me know if you try!

If you want a REAL treat, dunk these babies into a cold glass of almond milk (or any milk you like)! The dunk took me back to such a sweet time of childhood- filled with Nickelodeon, paper dolls, and flashlight tag. I hope you enjoy these beautiful, delicious, moist (I SAID IT) cookies as much as I did!
