After posting a picture of my No-Bake Paleo Cookies on Instagram last week, I received a slew of messages asking for the recipe. Whether you eat Paleo or not, it’s a great, easy and healthier dessert option. After all, isn’t it rather exciting to come across super yummy dessert recipes that DON’T involve any sugar?? My family and friends LOVE them, and I’m sure you will too! Here you go:

No-Bake Paleo Cookies

Ingredients

1/3 cup honey

1/3 cup coconut oil

1 tsp. vanilla

1  1/2 tbsp. cocoa powder

1/3 cup almond butter

2 cups unsweetened, shredded coconut

Pour honey, coconut oil, and cocoa powder in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Bring the mixture to a boil for 1 minute and immediately remove from heat. Stir in the vanilla and almond butter until blended well. Stir in shredded coconut. Scoop by spoonfuls onto parchment paper (or wax paper) and refrigerate until hardened. You can store at room temperature, but I always prefer to keep them in the fridge! Enjoy!!

The Best Non-Brown Brownie

September 9, 2015

 IMG_9020

By no surprise, my favorite recipes are derived straight from my grandmother Lou’s kitchen. I previously posted her amazing Ranger Cookie recipe. (It’s utterly the BEST. COOKIE. RECIPE. EVER.) The next recipe that I would like to share of hers is one for a brownie. However, it’s no ordinary brownie. It’s called a Swedish Brownie, and I can guarantee it will be the best “non-brown” brownie you’ll ever sink your teeth into! It’s great for dinner parties if you want something a little unusual yet delicious. Better yet, it’s incredibly easy to make and requires very little prep time. (It typically takes me 35 minutes from start to finish.)

Here is the recipe to the best “non-brown” brownies on the market:

Swedish Brownies

½ Tsp. of Salt

4 Eggs

2 Cups of Flour

2 Cups of Sugar

1 Cup Butter (partly melted)

½ Tsp. of Baking Powder

2 Tsp. of Almond Extract

Mix all ingredients in large bowl. Spread in well-greased jelly roll 10×15 pan. (For thicker brownies, use a regular 9×13 brownie pan.) Batter will be thick. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes or until top is lightly browned and middle is cooked. (If you’re using a 9×13 pan, bake for 25-30 minutes.) Once cooled, sprinkle powdered sugar on top and enjoy!
