Lemon Elderflower Layer Cake from spabettie // This Lemon Elderflower Layer Cake is royally delicious! bright and light flavors, tasty lemon cake surrounded by smooth and sweet elderflower frosting.
Hand Pies [King Arthur Flour Bakealong] from Relishments // I was so pleased with how well these hand pies turned out and the results of my filling experimentations. The extra effort to get the squares even and try something new with the vents was totally worth it.
Savory Bread Pudding with Ham and Swiss Cheese from Sinful Nutrition // This Savory Bread Pudding recipe made with hearty bread, ham, swiss cheese, and eggs is an easy make-ahead main dish for breakfast, brunch, or even dinner!
Rustic Strawberry Cake from Om Nom Ally // A truly special vegan and gluten free cake for summer, made with fresh whole grains and grain-free flours, strawberries, cinnamon and vanilla.
Apple Bundt Cake from Key Ingredients // This Apple Bundt Cake is light and moist, with chucks of apples generously placed throughout. Not only is it delicious but it’s the ultimate in simplicity. It’s packed with apple goodness making it absolutely perfect for fall. Enjoy it for breakfast alongside a cup of coffee or tea or as a mealtime dessert.
Apricot Flaxseed Muffins from Eating Made Easy // These Apricot Flaxseed Muffins are nutty, nutritious, and not overly sweet. Sub your favorite stone fruit to fit the season or what you happen to have on hand.
Toffee Crunch Brownie Tart from Amee’s Savory Dish // Some people think that if something is gluten-free that it’s some weird health food. Well, this is not a healthy recipe, it’s a splurge treat!
Pistachio White Chocolate Cardamom Biscotti from Holley Grainger // Easy homemade biscotti makes the perfect holiday hostess gift especially when it is packed with flavor like this Pistachio, White Chocolate and Cardamom Biscotti. Make it your signature recipe by picking your perfect chocolate drizzles and toppings.
Pumpkin Butterscotch Cookeis from The REWM // The cookies are a big hit every time I make them, and while I typically bake them in October as a Halloween treat, they’re also great for Friendsgiving/Thanksgiving/whatever.
Chocolate Protein Bars with Sweet Potato from Fitnessista // These chocolate protein bars are gluten-free, grain-free, can easily be made vegan, and make an awesome balanced macro snack. You can make these as part of meal prep, or enjoy them as a healthy treat that tastes like dessert.
Black Bottom Cheesecake Cupcakes from The Lean Green Bean // These Black Bottom Cheesecake Cupcakes are the perfect balance of chocolate cupcake on the bottom and cheesecake on the top! It’s like two desserts in every bite! Top them with a simple strawberry sauce if desired.
Funfetti Madeleines from The April Blake // If you don’t have a madeleine pan yet, I highly encourage you to get one, because one you know the trick from above, using one is extremely easy. It’s a fun way to get cookie sized cakes, the flavor combinations are endless, and they are way less fussy to decorate than actual cookies or cakes.
The Best Ever Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars from Sweet Tooth Sweet Life // Simple ingredients and full of flavor, these bars boast a soft and delicious texture that will melt in your mouth!
The Best Chocolate Cupcakes with Chocolate Buttercream Frosting from Prevention RD // There was no cutting corners to clean this one up. No half-and-half with all-purpose and whole wheat flour, no reduction in the amount of sugar. There was no swapping the heavy cream for half and half or ::shudder:: milk 😉 There was no going skimpy on the frosting because they just wouldn’t be the same.
Lofthouse Sugar Cookie Bars from Peanut Butter and Peppers // A light, fluffy sugar cookie crust topped with a sweet, creamy buttercream frosting.
Pumpkin Spice Yeast-Free Cinnamon Rolls from Oatmeal witha Fork // Yeast-free, lower sugar pumpkin spice cinnamon rolls that are both figure-friendly and easy to make!
Healthy Peanut Butter Cookies from Foodie Fiasco // This is the crowning jewel in my cookie crown. From now on, this is the it cookie. We will accept nothing less. 1 cookie = 25 calories of rich, chewy yet slightly crunchy, sweet yet slightly salty, peanut buttery perfection. This changes everything. And no words can do them justice.
Healthy Orange Cranberry Muffins from Friday Love Song // One of my favorite things to bake are muffins. They can be a quick breakfast, snack, and can easily be made a little healthier by changing up some ingredients you’re baking with. These healthy orange cranberry muffins fit the bill on all of those!
Cranberry Crumble Bars from Daily Garnish // I remade cranberry sauce, just like the sauce we made on Thanksgiving, and turned it into a delicious dessert. Tart cranberry filling, sugary crumbly topping. Vegan and even gluten-free (just use GF oats!).
Caramelized Onion, Smoked Cheddar, and Apple Biscuits from 321 Delish // Man, I was not disappointed! This biscuit made the PERFECT vehicle for a slightly runny fried egg. My mouth is watering just thinking about it! Go to the store now and get these ingredients so you can make these for your family this weekend!
