GF Cookie Dough Blondies

Hi everyone, long time no recipe! This week I made these ultra cute and very delightful blondies. The recipe can be found here…they are actually called “Cake Batter Blondies”, but they seemed to have a more cookie dough taste to me. With the sprinkles and mix of white + dark chocolate, it looked like a…

V White Flour Tortillas

So I’ve continued to test tortilla recipes and found one that is much tastier compared to the whole wheat flour one I tried a few weeks ago! Here’s the recipe. It does use white flour, and this means it is not as nutritious or “good for you” than a whole wheat tortilla. However, the flavor…

V Blueberry Muffins

  A winter snow day calls for baking! This recipe, which can be found here, is extremely simple. Th muffins might be small, but they are powerful in flavor. The lemon zest works wonderfully in combination with the blueberries. I used frozen bluberries and made sure not to overmix the batter. Since it is vegan, not gluten-free, I…
