Chocolate Sweet Potato Frosting

Say whaaaa?!… Does this actually taste good? Does this work? No way. Allllla these thoughts definitely ran through my head when I tried this. But it works! It totally works! And its really really delicious. Super rich and chocolatey, depending on what kind of chocolate you use. I like to use my own, which can…

Carrot (cup)cakes with coconut cream cheese frosting

I don’t know what has me on this carrot cake kick, but I made this healthy version of carrot cakes and turned them into cupcakes/muffins for my little guy and I. This was also my first go at using Chia seeds to replace the egg for an antioxidant boost! I try to limit the sugar…

Carrot Cake Cinnamon Rolls

The texture on these is insane. View this post on Instagram A post shared by Jenny MacKenzie (@jennymackenzie) I had my doubts about these, but these are unbelievable. The texture is out of this world and the carrot cake attributes really lend themselves well to cinnamon rolls! They also happen to be gluten free and…

Golden Baked Oats

Why do golden lattes get to have all the glory? The magic ingredient in both is the turmeric, so I suppose that means that the turmeric gets the glory. And I’m ok with that because turmeric is pretty magical and transformative… So many anti-inflammatory, color changing, good for you benefits. If turmeric doesn’t quite do…

Fudgy Blender Brownies

This is a dense, healthy(ish) brownie I tend to eat as a breakfast or a filling snack. These are flour free and naturally gluten free, as pumpkin is the binding ingredient here. You can also easily make these paleo by swapping the sweetener! If you’re looking for a more dessert type brownie, I would recommend…

Zucchini Blender Brownies!

Because why not? And these ones are actually on the healthier side and they will fill you up and keep you satisfied for a while. These are naturally gluten free, but I also have a vegan option at the bottom as well. The Vegan option is a little finicky and may require adjustments, but it…

No Bake Oreo Roll Cake

Like. Woah was this good. It is also VERY rich. I know you’re reading the first ingredient and thinking HOW MANY OREOS?! But you say that like you haven’t eaten a whole row of Oreos before while binge watching Netflix… no? Just me? Anyhoo. I’m a believer in all things in moderation. Especially if it’s…

Cinnamon Rolls

These were overnight cinnamon rolls, but I did not use my starter for these! I think I was kind of intimidated. I wanted to see if I could nail a good yeast cinnamon roll before I used my own starter. These did not disappoint. I’ll probably make 1 more batch before I use my starter….

Christmas Cookies 2019

Sheesh, it sure took me long enough! And I honestly almost boxed these babies up and forgot to post. Lucky for me, I found an Instagram challenge of all things that reminded me. These little cookie boxes are great gifts for teachers, friends, neighbors etc. We give them to the USPS, UPS, Fed Ex folks,…
