Autumn is all about apples. Whether it is apple picking, apple cider or apple pie I am a major fan. Don’t even get me started about the apple cider doughnuts from Bad Seed Cider co. each week at the Fort Green Green market. We have gone nearly every week for the doughnuts alone. We try to balance our indulgences by picking up some actual locally grown apples. But then cave and turn them into dessert. So I have gone and done my best to clean up the traditional apple crisp with this gluten-free, vegan and nearly paleo rendition. Happy fall everyone!

This treat from our Canadian Thanksgiving has it all covered. They’re vegan. They’re paleo. They are gluten and dairy free. If you make them all with organic ingredients you can call them organic. This is a fast, simple, no guilt dessert or everyday fall treat. It also is right on the Pumpkin Spice trend. So enjoy being hip and healthy with these Pumpkin Spice Peanut Butter Balls.

As you know, I LOVE seeing pictures of readers trying out our recipes (so please if you try something out instagram it, tweet it or send it in directly. I love the feedback). Today’s pint sized chef is cuter than buttons. This little sweetheart mixing up a batch of our Chocolate Drop Cookies left me with a perma-grin and amplified my baby fever to a new pinnacle. I hope her sweetness brightens your day as much as it did mine 🙂 Happy weekend one and all!
I have officially worked my brain to capacity. 30+ peer reviewed articles and legal statutes later and I think I have enough knowledge to craft an adequate position paper on the martial rights of persons with disabilities (fingers crossed). I have left a permanent impression of myself on my couch the past few afternoons as I have chipped away at my scholastic to-do list. So what I need now is refueling, both mentally, creatively and physically. Which is where these cookies come in. I have a basic cookie dough recipe I tend to use for the base of all my cookies and lately I have been craving ginger snap, so I decided to play around. The result was fantastic on the first attempt.
Oh, and they’re vegan.
And another thing, the only real molasses in them is in the brown sugar. So they’re healthier than the traditional variation of this cookie.
Alas, in my books today was a successful day -cookies and academics included. Continue reading “Chewy, Gooey, Ginger Molasses Cookies”
