The BEST Chocolate Chip Cookies

These cookies are absolutely irresistible and, I have on great authority, are the best chocolate cookies you will ever bake. What makes them so special? They are a killer combo of soft and chewy inside with crisp edges. They use chocolate chunks (not chips!) which are mission-critical for getting ooey gooey layers of chocolate inside….

Blueberry Lemon Galette

Dark Chocolate & Cherry Energy Bites (gf/vegan/paleoish)

When I first made these energy bites, I wasn’t sure if the dark chocolate and cherry would pair well with the flavor of a nut butter… It does! And, I’ve made these with both peanut butter and almond butter so I can confirm that both of those taste awesome. They have a different taste, for obvious…

Banana Oat Pancakes (gf)

We are kind of obsessed with these gluten-free banana oat pancakes right now. When I say obsessed, I mean, we’ve made them at least 3-4 times in the last 2 weeks.
