  1. INSTRUCTIONS
  2. In a small bowl mix together your shortbread ingredients (the coconut flour, maple, oil, and vanilla. Press the dough into a lined 8x8 in baking tin to make the bottom crust. Set aside for later.
  3. In a small pot melt the caramel ingredients on a medium low heat for about 3 minutes (the maple, oil, almond butter, and vanilla). Make sure to stir while everything melts to keep from burning. Let cool for a couple of minutes then pour over the top of the shortbread crust. Cover and refrigerate for about 30 minutes to set let the caramel set.
  4. While the caramel is setting, begin making the chocolate by melting the coconut oil in a small sauce pot first. Stir in the maple, cocoa powder, peppermint, vanilla and salt. Make sure there are no remaining lumps, then remove from heat and cool.
  5. After the caramel has firmed up you can pour the chocolate over the top, spread with the back of a spoon to even out the top, then cover and refrigerate for 30-60 minutes until firm.
  6. Cut into squares, garnish with crushed candy canes and enjoy!
Recipe Notes

Before pouring the chocolate over the top of the caramel you want to make sure that the chocolate isn't too hot still or you'll end up melting the caramel which and you won't get those individual layers. Store these in the refrigerator.

Pumpkin Walnut Bread with Oat Flour

PumpkinBreadCut1_brightened

This bread is incredibly moist, beautifully spiced and full of pumpkin flavor. Accented with warm spices like cinnamon, plus a touch of earthy nutmeg and clove, dreamy coconut oil, and vanilla too. It’s not too oaty. The walnuts give it a lovely crunch, and the maple glaze.. divine!

The oat flour is so easy to make, you just blend oats until they resemble a flour-like texture. They create a beautiful depth of flavor in the bread.

French Pear Tart

As the winter months begin to roll in, and the first snows are popping up, my mind dreams of sitting by the fire with a slice of apple or pear tart, and a cup of tea… Now pear aren’t what you’d think of as winter fruit, I know.  Like apples, though, late harvest varieties are around through December.  And they keep longer than most other fresh fruits, well into early to mid winter, giving you an alternative to apples to bake with.

I fell in love with this delicious and fairly easy pear tart.  It is loaded with butter and sweet preserves to warm the cold edges of winter. Take a look and try this recipe out.  I think you will love it as much as I do.

An Attitude of Gratitude


Gratitude

Gratitude is good for your mental health. 

Gratitude is a thankful appreciation for what a person receives, whether tangible or intangible. With gratitude or thankfulness, people acknowledge the goodness in their lives. In the process, they usually recognize that the source of that goodness lies at least partially outside themselves. As a result, being thankful also helps people connect to something larger than themselves— whether to other people, nature or a higher power.

Edible Flower Spring Rolls

Using Edible Flowers
,

in your party desserts, drinks, salads and even main dishes adds a unique element to your celebration. They add color, elegance, a bit of whimsy, and also have an interesting range of tastes.

Searchfor what is in season in your area – your local farmers’ market is a great source for finding out what is available and they’ll often have much more variety than the grocery store. Always ask vendors how their flowers are grown (you don’t want to eat flowers that have been sprayed with pesticides!). You can also order edible flowers (fresh or crystallized, which are great for using atop desserts) from several sites online (Gourmet Sweet Botanicals, Marx Foods, Food Innovations).

Peach Almond Shortcake ~ with Coconut Whipped Cream (Paleo, GF)

 

PeachAlmondShortcake_RealYummies

Starting off the week with shortcake . . .

is always a good idea. Especially if they’re amazingly satisfying and healthy.

What’s not to love about this light summer dessert? It is a favorite of mine. I believe it was this seasonal dessert that got me liking peaches when I was a kid.

These flavorful shortcakes are SO simple, grain and gluten free, and taste even better than the shortcake I grew up with. They are moist and have the slightest sweetness to them…perfect for the dessert-ifying. Here, with the addition of sweetened peaches and coconut whipped cream, they are worthy of my top 2 desert spot!
