Pumpkin and October go hand-in-hand. But chocolate goes perfect with every month, am I right?  Thus, the obvious addition of chocolate in my pumpkin recipes this Fall.

I love these scones. I love them so much that when half of the batch plopped right onto the floor prior to photographing, I gasped and for a brief second thought the world was over. Thank goodness they didn’t all go; that would have been tragic.

I love scones that are still soft in the center but have a nice crisp edge so I always take mine out of the oven a few minutes early! The crisp edge, chewy center, and delicious chocolate

Ingredients

    Dry Ingredients

    Chocolate Drizzle

    Directions

    1. Preheat oven to 350°F and place parchment paper on baking sheet.
    2. In a bowl, whisk the almond flour, baking powder, pumpkin pie spice, sea salt, and cinnamon until well blended.
    3. Add the egg, coconut oil, maple syrup or honey, and vanilla extract and mix until soft dough forms.
    4. Using your hands, roll the dough into a ball and place on lined baking sheet. Gently flatten the dough into a disc about 1-inch thick.
    5. Using a pizza cutter or a knife, cut into 8 wedges. Gently separate, but leave in a circle.
    6. Bake for 35-40 minutes. I like a soft center, and take them out at 35 minutes, but let bake for 5-10 minutes longer, watching closely to avoid burning, if you like crispier scones.
    7. Transfer to a cooling rack to cool.
    8. Using the double boiler method or a microwave, melt the chocolate and coconut oil in a small mixing bowl. Whisk to make sure that the chocolate and oil is well combined.
    9. Once scones are cool, drizzle with chocolate and devour!
    10. Store leftovers in an airtight container for up to three days or in the freezer for up to three months!

    Recipe Notes

    *If the dough is too wet, slice with a wet knife. Let bake for 20 minutes. Slice again and separate scones. Bake for another 20-25 minutes until firm on the outside.

    Gluten Free Oatmeal Raisin CookiesGluten Free Oatmeal Raisin Cookies Recipe

    This weekend my family gathered to remember the life of my loving grandmother. As hard as the past few days have been, we try and feel comfort having our family and friends by our side. I got to spend some quality time with my siblings. When my younger brother came across my Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Cookies, he immediately requested a healthy version of Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies (his favorite), and of course I set out to do just that. What’s more comforting than a nice chewy oatmeal cookie with a glass of almond milk? Not much! And these cookies will not disappoint!

    How to Make Gluten Free Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

    These cookies are made with a mixer to get that butter light and fluffy. And then the rest of the ingredients are added in. As with most recipes that involve creaming softened butter, it’s best if the rest of the ingredients are around room temperature, like the eggs, that way it doesn’t make the butter too cold and appear curdled.

    1. Cream the butter and sugar
    2. Add the eggs
    3. Finely process half of the oats
    4. Add the dry ingredients into the wet, and beat.
    5. Fold in raisins and chocolate chips, and bake!

    A warm chocolate chip cookie dipped in milk (or in my house, almond milk) just feels like home. The smell of cookies baking in your house is heavenly! These Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookies are a treat, and one that is nutrient-dense with almond flour as it’s base and SO SO delicious.

    What’s in them?

    Want to make it extra special?

    I like to sprinkle the cookies with a coarse flaky sea salt before baking, because sea salt and chocolate are the ultimate combo in cookies! And Mike LOVES these straight from the freezer! You can store them so you’ll always have a little treat on hand when you are having a craving!

    Ingredients

    Directions

    1. Position oven rack to the middle of your oven and preheat oven to 350°F. The middle rack will ensure even baking.
    2. In a medium-sized mixing bowl combine almond flour, coconut flour, baking soda, and salt.
    3. In a small mixing bowl combine egg, honey, butter, and vanilla.
    4. Pour wet ingredients into dry ingredients and mix well.
    5. Drop tablespoons of dough on a parchment lined baking sheet.
    6. Bake for 10 minutes (for soft, slightly undercooked cookies- my favorite!) or 12 minutes (for fully cooked cookies).
    7. Let cool and serve (perhaps with a glass of almond milk)!

    Recipe Notes

    • Using grass-fed butter is my preferred method for delicious copy-cat Tollhouse style cookies, but you can use coconut oil if you are dairy-free.
    • Yields: 14 medium size cookies
