Cinnamon Bun Cashew & Pecan Butter (GF, DF, V, VF)

thefitforkfeed - October 16, 2016

Welcome back friends!  I hope the Autumn is treating you well (assuming you are celebrating this fine season).  Ever since I created my Cinnamon Roll Truffle Energy Bites, I’ve been a liiiiiiitle obsessed with all things cinnamon.  And by little, I mean a lot.  I’ve been adding it to smoothies, toast, basically anywhere that I can.  I’ve never tried my hand at making nut butters …

Cinnamon Roll Truffle Energy Bites (GF, DF, V, Refined Sugar Free)

thefitforkfeed - September 23, 2016

Happy almost Friday peeps!  It’s been crazy around here and to top it off someone informed me that “Mercury is in retrograde” which allegedly means things get a little topsy turvy.  For example, last week I dropped and smashed a glass bottle, broke my favorite necklace, all of my recipe testings failed and it was just overall a nightmare week.  But I’m back with a bang …

Double Chocolate Chip Protein Cookie (GF, DF, Nut Free, Refined Sugar Free)

thefitforkfeed - August 10, 2016

It was about a month ago when I saw the lovely Monique from Ambitious Kitchen’s Chickpea Flour Chocolate Chip Cookies.  It was one of those recipes that stuck with me, in particular the dreamy photos of melty chocolate, fluffy perfectly shaped crispy edged cookies, with little sprinkles of flaked sea salt on them. I knew I had to make them and last week I finally had …

thefitforkfeed - June 2, 2016

Hi friends!  How are you?  Life has been crazy in these parts dealing with the end of the school year crazies, sick child and of course creating recipes for you!  My first job, when I was 16, was working at a small local coffee and book shop making lattes, talking with customers, and smelling like a coffee bean most of the time.  I drank my …

Peanut Butter, Blueberry & Granola Blender Muffins (GF, DF, VF, Refined Sugar Free)

thefitforkfeed - May 18, 2016

Your mornings just got a lot easier with these quick, soft, and fluffiest muffins ever!   I always love a good muffin recipe, especially when it involves 2 minutes prep time and 12 minutes of baking time.  These babies combine all of your favorite breakfast items such as oats, yogurt, bananas, blueberries, (which are so good right now by the way!) and granola.   My son, who …

Baked Vanilla Carrot Cake Donuts with Vanilla Drizzle (GF, DF, V, Paleo)

thefitforkfeed - April 21, 2016

I’ve been on a donut making frenzy over here at the FFF kitchen!  I’ve been dying to try Red Palm Oil and my friends at Nutiva sent me some to try!  Not only does it have a beautiful orange color but it also is nutritionally dense as well.  It is high in antioxidant vitamins A & E and has a rich buttery flavor, making it the …

The Softest Baked Chocolate & Sweet Potato Donuts or Muffins (GF, DF, Refined Sugar Free)

thefitforkfeed - March 11, 2016

Today we had rain in Southern California, a rare event, so it was the perfect excuse to bake all morning while my son was in school.  I wanted to rebake and reshoot an older recipe I made about 6 months ago since my older picture doesn’t quite capture the soft, fluffy, and gooey goodness of these donuts.  I hope this picture captures that better for you, so …

Chunky Monkey Granola (GF, DF, Refined Sugar Free)

thefitforkfeed - February 26, 2016

I’ve had an obsession with all things banana lately.  Perhaps, my body needs a potassium boost or maybe it’s all the banana bread that has gone to my head.  Needless to say, I came up with yet another recipe incorporating 3 of my favorite things- banana, chocolate, and peanut butter, i.e. chunky monkey.  Except this won’t make you chunky at all because it uses real, whole …

thefitforkfeed - February 16, 2016

I’ve been having serious cravings for banana bread lately, so I had to answer those cravings today!  Fortunately, my new favorite cookbook came to the rescue with an amazing and healthy recipe by Amy Chaplin!  I made a few changes to her recipe and it still came out super moist, sweet, and nutty.  I also had some ripe bananas to use up so this + …
