Here is how.

Paleo Vanilla Cupcakes

Man, oh man, are these fluffy, moist, and totally tasty.  Super easy to make, and I was stunned of their texture being exactly the same as any other cupcake.  One cannot tell the difference between these and cupcakes made with flour.  Thus, why not then make the healthier cupcake, if there is no sacrifice of taste?  Your body and health will thank you for it 🙂

Gluten-free/grain-free, lactose-free, and with only honey used for sweetener, these are a cupcake you can feel far better about eating!

Gluten free and Low Sugar Chocolate Cheesecake

Happy Wednesday, all!

This chocolate cheesecake is the perfect guilt-free (or nearly ;-)) treat.  Made with no added sugar (honey aside), its gluten free (sans crust), though is decadent and delicious.  Swirled through with Greek yogurt and bittersweet chocolate.  This is a cheesecake you can feel significantly better about eating, as opposed to the traditional versions (which are far more laden with sugar, usually with a gluten-based crust, and more fat).

Here is how to make it!

Olive Oil Cake

This one is lightly sweet, springy in texture, and just delectable.  Though not gluten-free, it is lactose-free and, while not especially low in sugar, isn’t over the top either.  The cake is a scrumptious treat, the olive oil lending it a delightful flavor and texture.

Enjoy!

Paleo Blueberry Buckle Cake

Oh my gosh, is this stuff tasty!  Initially I worried about it being a bit bland or of an odd texture, as its made with almond and coconut flours.  However, the end result was a moist, cinnamon-y, lightly sweet, blueberry laden, divine cake!  Or, blueberry buckle, if you will.

While slightly involved, its overall, an easy one to toss together.  A fun interplay of textures going on here too, with the crunch of walnuts on top, the spongy cake texture, the burst of fresh berries on biting into them.

On whipping this up, you will be gifted with having something scrumptious to accompany your wintery warm drinks with each afternoon for the week.  Enjoy!
