We are BIG carrot cake fans (especially Jill, it’s her favorite). We have been waiting to make a carrot cake for the blog, and Easter seemed like the perfect occasion. We wanted this carrot cake to be legit— dense yet fluffy, right amount of sweetness, with creamy, thick frosting. But we also wanted it to be “on brand”— a carrot cake that tastes amazing but leaves out gluten, dairy, and huge amounts of sugar. 

We searched for inspo across the Google machine, Pinterest, and some of our favorite bloggers (Minimalist Baker and Ambitious Kitchen, namely). We found good stuff, but some were too complicated, u...

We’ve been trying to master a gluten free bread that’s also vegan and low sugar. After experimenting with various combinations of flax “eggs”, apple sauce, almond butter, and anything and everything else we thought might make the bread hold up, it kept coming out mushy! Until this beauty. 

Oat flour might be the key to creating a bread that holds up nicely, especially if you’re making it vegan (without eggs). Coconut flour and almond flour tend to absorb and hold a lot of moisture, so by using some oat and some almond flour and no flax egg, we created a recipe that tastes amazing and is dense and fluffy. Enou...

There's not much better than the smell of warm cookies on a cold day... or any day, really. These chocolate chunk ginger cookies are that perfect, fresh baked cookie consistency-- slightly crispy on the edges, soft and chewy in the middle. They're incredibly simple to make, they just require a few clean ingredients, they're low in sugar, and they *happen* to be vegan and gluten free. EVERYONE WINS!

We've tried, sometimes succeeding and sometimes failing, in making vegan treats. When vegan and gluten free, sometimes ratio and consistency is hard, and almost always there's a flax egg, almond butter, or hard-to-find,...

      Who doesn't like mac n cheese? Better yet, who doesn't like baked mac n cheese? It's a classic comfort food. Once the seasons change and the temperature begins to drop, we start craving more comforting foods. By "we," I don't just mean Rachel and me, but I mean all of us. It's an actual, biological thing. Growing up, it was something we always had at Thanksgiving and a few other special occasions, but being that it's so rich, it was not ever frequent. Typical baked mac n cheese is made with macaroni pasta, loads of cheese, butter, flour, and milk or cream. So, how can we enjoy this delicious comfort food mo...

There’s three spotty bananas sitting in the fruit bowl, but they’ve surpassed the standard level of ripeness. They’re borderline mushy. When this happens, the best way to let them not go to waste is to make some banana bread! Banana bread is great anytime of year, but in the Fall, the cravings for warm, sweet carbs kicks in. Along with that is the craving for anything and everything pumpkin spice. Yeah yeah, “so basic,” but don’t pretend you don’t love it, too! Ok, so there may be someeee people who actually don’t love it. In that case, leave out the pumpkin spice, or sub it for just cinnamon. Equally delicious....
