NUT & SEED CRACKERS

NUT & SEED CRACKERS

I saw these at a Danish bakery in London and thought what a great idea for a low carb cracker. It’s filled with nuts and seeds and held together by eggs. I used the biscotti method for baking it which is twice baked. This makes […]

ALMOND CHERRY COOKIE BARS

ALMOND CHERRY COOKIE BARS

This recipe came about because I had almond butter and cherry jam and wanted to make a dessert. These are sweet and chewy and the almond butter gives it a nice almond flavour. Definitely great for a weeknight treat.

ALMOND RICOTTA COOKIES

ALMOND RICOTTA COOKIES

My Limoncello cookies are so good. They are something between a cake and cookies thanks to the yogurt in them. I wanted to try this cookie flavoured with almonds instead of lemon and they were perfect. I changed up a few of the ingredients. I […]

COCONUT PINEAPPLE UPSIDE DOWN CAKE

COCONUT PINEAPPLE UPSIDE DOWN CAKE

I have been making this cake for years. I have taken a retro dessert and turned it up a notch with coconut and extra pineapple. It’s also easy to make as you are not making the cake from scratch. I like to make this in […]

PEANUT BUTTER & JELLY THUMBS

PEANUT BUTTER & JELLY THUMBS

I had a bake set when I was a child. It included some recipes and my favourite was this peanut butter and jelly thumb print cookie. I lost the recipe, but I remember the cookie, and these taste just like it. They are also quite […]

JALAPENO CHEDDAR BISCUITS

JALAPENO CHEDDAR BISCUITS

I’ve made many variations of this biscuit. This jalapeno cheddar is my newest one. It tasted like cornbread. The almond flour gives it the cornbread texture. It’s also keto friendly.

CRANBERRY WHITE CHOCOLATE SHORTBREAD

CRANBERRY WHITE CHOCOLATE SHORTBREAD

I love shortbread. My Mom would make it every Christmas. I’ve taken a basic recipe and jazzed it up a bit by adding almond flour, dried cranberries, and white chocolate. I like to serve this on a plate and let people break off what they […]

MARRON GLACE

MARRON GLACE

The first time I had marron glace (candied chestnuts in french) was as a spread in a crepe in Paris. I was hooked, it was my favourite thing. Whenever I got waffles or crepes, I would get it with marron spread on it. Then I […]

BANANA WALNUT MUFFINS

BANANA WALNUT MUFFINS

I feel like everyone should have a banana muffin recipe. Whether it’s passed down from your grandmother or you saw something on the food network. It’s one of those recipes that you keep with you and can create over and over again. I always have […]

DATE & OATMEAL COOKIES

DATE & OATMEAL COOKIES

These are my favourite oatmeal cookies. They are good with raisins, but the dates give them a sweeter, chewier texture. The mix of the two kinds of oats gives it a nice texture as well.
