Carrot cake waffles, carrot cake smoothies, carrot cake donuts, carrot cake muffins, carrot cake protein balls… you name it, there’s probably a carrot cake rendition of it.

SINGLE-SERVE PALEO CHOCOLATE BANANA BREAD

Freshly baked paleo banana bread has to be one of my all-time favorite things in the WORLD. The smell alone is enough to make me swoon. If I could bake banana bread every single day just to make my house smell like it, I 100% would.

PALEO CARROT CAKE SKILLET

Carrot cake has been my favorite cake since I can remember. I would make it for birthdays, Easter, you name it. I LOVED carrot cake. I realized I hadn’t had it in years due to my food intolerances, so making a gut-friendly version has been top of my list for what seems like ever so I’m SO happy to finally have this option in my life.

NO-BAKE PALEO APPLE PIE BITES

I’m not sure what’s going on but I’m going through a major cooked apple phase and I am HERE for it. Whether I’m topping cauliflower “oatmeal” with cinnamon sautéed apples, eating sautéed apples with banana ice cream and grain free granola on top like a paleo version of an apple crisp or just eating cooked apples on their own – I can’t get over them.

PALEO + VEGAN LEMON COCONUT THUMBPRINT COOKIES

There’s just something about lemon baked goods that gives me all the feels. I think it’s because they’re comforting (as all baked goods are), but also refreshing. It’s truly the best combo, isn’t it? Well these paleo + SCD friendly lemon thumbprint cookies are the perfect showcase of that intersection between comforting and refreshing!

Single-Serve Paleo Lemon Cake

Since it's the middle of winter I thought we could all use a little sunshine in the form of paleo lemon cake (the best kind of sunshine in my opinion)! These little, mini cakes are perfect when you want something sweet but don't necessarily want leftovers. OR, you can always double, triple or quadruple the recipe and make enough for guests! With how cute they are and how YUMMY they taste, they're sure to be a crowd pleaser.

PALEO POMEGRANATE N’OATMEAL COOKIES

Unpopular opinion: oatmeal cookies were always the best growing up. Truly – I LOVED oatmeal raisin cookies as a kid (and I’m pretty sure I was the only one LOL). These paleo pomegranate n’oatmeal cookies are the perfect grain-free, gut-healthy upgrade to that childhood favorite.

NO-BAKE PALEO + VEGAN PUMPKIN CHEESECAKE

Okay so I know it’s technically Christmastime now (I’m literally listening to Michael Buble Christmas music right this second), but I couldn’t help but sneak in ONE more pumpkin recipe.

PALEO SALTED CHOCOLATE TAHINI COOKIES

I’ve been on SUCH a chocolate kick lately and I’m not mad about it. I’m so, so happy I listened to my body a few months ago and reincorporated it into my life again after giving it up for so long (it’s an iffy food on SCD which I was following strictly when I first got diagnosed with ulcerative colitis – now I’m following it more loosely).

NO-BAKE PALEO PUMPKIN PIE BARS

(please note that this recipe post is sponsored by Vital Proteins, but any opinions shared are genuine and honest!)

These pumpkin pie bars have me like WHOA. But seriously… these slices are HEAVENLY (just ask my parents). My mom even said they’re her favorite recipe of mine and trust me, she’s tried them ALL.

PALEO CHOCOLATE CHIP PUMPKIN BREAD

Fall may have been underway for a little while now, but it officially feels like fall now that it’s October. I just absolutely LOVE this season and this month. The cozier weather, the cozier food, the gorgeous leaves, the sunny yet crisp days, the flavors, the pumpkin patch adventures.

PALEO PISTACHIO FIG NEWTON BREAD

Fig season BEST season, am I right or am I right!? I fell in love with figs last summer and you could say it’s getting pretty serious. I don’t see a breakup in our future anytime soon, especially with this paleo fig newton bread (with pistachios!!) in the mix.

PALEO + VEGAN SWEET & SALTY MACADAMIA COCONUT BITES

When I think of summer flavors, tropical flavors always come to mind first (maybe it’s just wishful thinking that I was on a beach somewhere in Hawaii…). Pineapple, mango, coconut and macadamia nuts are probably the top four flavors (ingredients? Idk what to call them LOL) that make my tastebuds scream SUMMER.

PALEO LAVENDER LEMON SCONES

As many of you probably saw on Instagram, I’ve been spending quite a bit of time on Whidbey Island, my home away from home. When I think of my childhood I think of Whidbey Island – beach trips with my family, bonfires by the ocean, eating locally harvested seafood, going to the farmers market – it’s always held such a special place in my heart.
