Buckwheat Bagels

Okay, y’all. Let’s talk about these buckwheat bagels. Yeast is hard to find these days, and I’ve been GF (with a couple of meals as exceptions) since the beginning of the year. So I’m taking some time to learn more about GF/V baking when it comes to bread that doesn’t have yeast. SO FUN! Hahaha.

Actually, it has been. And this has been the highlight, I think. These bagels started out as a bread recipe recommended by a GF/V friend – shoutout to Miss Jackie O – and have now morphed into this version. And I have to say that I like this recipe a whole lot better as bagels because my loaf pan is pretty big. If you have a smaller loaf pan, feel free to bake this like bread! You can try doubling the recipe for a regular loaf pan, but I have not yet. Let me know if you do.

Pumpkin Spice Golden Milk Latte

Finally! Not another oatmeal! And this one is PERFECT for the beautiful fall weather we’re not really experiencing here in Phoenix… LOL. Honestly, I don’t care if it’s still over 90F. I’m drinking this creamy, dreamy, delicious pumpkin spice golden milk latte anyway. Bet. 😉

I’m NOT a coffee drinker, so anything called “latte” in my book doesn’t have coffee. But if you want to add some, feel free to replace some of the water with it. My version has no caffeine, no refined sugar, and no hard-to-find or artificial ingredients. It’s easy peasy from start to finish, so let’s do this.

Doggy Cookie Dough

This Doggy Cookie Dough recipe came about when I was making the Doggy Peanut Butter Fudge. In fact, I’m not gonna lie: It’s the same three ingredients in the same measurements. It’s just not formed into bites, so it’s even easier. It looks like cookie dough and tastes a little like it (just less sweet).  Your dogs will love it nonetheless though, so let’s get to it, shall we?

Chocolate Golden Milk Smoothie

Doggy Peanut Butter Fudge

It’s time for another doggy recipe. And this Doggy Peanut Butter Fudge is inspired by the other bites and fudge I’ve made. Every time I make them, my dogs look at me like they want some.

Gluten-Free Chocolate Donuts

We’ve made baked chocolate donuts on the blog before. They’ve even been gluten-free before. But this version utilizes the base of my favorite banana bread muffins without making these taste like banana bread donuts. They taste like chocolaty goodness instead, so they’re a delicious dessert. Yet they’re made with healthy, simple ingredients, so they’re perfect as breakfast or a snack. So take your pick on when you eat them. They’re easily anything you want them to be!
