Baked Pumpkin with Apples and Cranberries (AIP, SCD)

These precious little sugar pumpkins are irresistibly cute, and tasty too! Stuffed with apples and dried cranberries, they are a trifecta of autumnal flavors packaged into one and seasoned with a bit of bacon. A cross between a dessert and a savory side dish, they would be

Apple Crumble for Two (AIP)

I just can’t help myself when it comes to apple crumble (or “apple crisp” – whatever you want to call it!). This is not the first recipe I’ve created for an AIP-compliant apple crumble… in fact, it isn’t even the second! But this is the best one

Tigernut Toffee Bars (AIP)

There are few treats that bring me back to my wholesome midwestern childhood as quickly as simple toffee bars do. They were a staple of homemade goodness, both made by my mother for my sister and me, and then later made by us when we learned how

Olive Oil Apple Cake with Maple Buttercream (Paleo, vegan, AIP)

This recipe for olive oil apple cake is an allergy-friendly twist on the traditional Italian cake that is usually made with orange juice and milk. Apple sauce is the key ingredient here as it acts as a binder and supplies moisture and flavor. A few of your

Overripe bananas usually mean banana bread but this recipe instead twists them into fudgy banana flavored brownies that are vegan, AIP, grain-free, and have no added sweeteners. Yes, it’s the holy grail of dessert yumminess! Whether you just need something that is gluten-free and all natural, or

Tiger Nut Energy Bites (AIP, Paleo)

These little balls provide the trifecta one wants in a homemade AIP-friendly “energy bite” or protein bar: nutrient dense, easy to make, and delicious taste! These are high in protein and healthy fats, so they make excellent between-meal snacks, and are naturally sweet without added sugars, so

Tigernut Flour: 25+ Favorite AIP Recipes

What is a “tigernut” and why is it allowed on AIP? Tigernuts win the prize for having both the most interesting and misleading name I have ever encountered. They have nothing to do with tigers or any part of their anatomy, nor are they nuts at all.

Cassava Flour: 40+ Favorite AIP Recipes

First, a personal update… I’m excited to tell you that tomorrow (February 13, 2017) I officially start the Nutritional Therapy Practitioner (NTP) course with the Nutritional Therapy Association! It is a very rigorous 9 month program and I am going to be balancing it with my already
