Chocolate Chip Muffins + Cassava Flour Giveaway

using Otto's Paleo & Vegan Cassava flour

The holiday season most definitely means baking for me; I have my own sweet tooth, but I also love giving homemade (edible!) gifts to friends. It’s my love language. I’m having lots of fun experimenting this year with more paleo-type baking: lower in grains, gluten- and dairy-free, using alternative flours. My specific flour of choice… [Continue Reading]

Dairy-Free Pumpkin Pudding with Vanilla Almond Topping

Dairy-Free Pumpkin Pudding with Vanilla Almond Yogurt

I cheated and already made and ate a pumpkin dessert! I couldn’t help it, though, after I saw about a million pumpkin pies in peoples’ baskets the other day at the store.

Pumpkin Seed Muffins (Gluten- and Grain-free)

Pumpkin Seed Muffins from Carrie on Living | www.carrieonliving.com

It’s that time of year again, when pumpkin-flavored everything hits the blogosphere. This muffin recipe is a bit different because it doesn’t use pumpkin puree, but instead uses raw, unsalted pepitas, otherwise known as pumpkin seeds.

Gluten-Free Blueberry Muffins + Enjoy Life Giveaway

Vegan Blueberry Muffin Recipe from Carrie on Living | www.carrieonliving.com

I’m pretty good at creating dairy- and gluten-free muffin recipes from scratch now, mainly out of necessity because it’s been tough to find good allergy-friendly baking mixes in the past. While I’ll probably always go the homemade route when I have the time, I adore that the new allergy-free baking mixes from Enjoy Life are so convenient… [Continue Reading]

With temperatures steadily soaring and it’s not even yet officially summer, it’s certainly time to go ahead and make a frozen treat to help cool down. This post features an updated version of my Strawberry & Vanilla Bean “Nice” Cream recipe, but without using soy milk. Non-dairy, date-sweetened, and delicious, though?
