Yes ... you read that correctly! Life is short, sometimes, you do NEED dessert. A little sugar here and there is not going to kill you, it’s just not, but we always recommend eating dessert made from the highest quality ingredients, so that you’re completely satisfied and not putting chemical junk into your body. This lava cake recipe is adapted slightly from TexanErin. That said, these aren’t actually that high in sugar - just 1/4 a cup - and we use coconut sugar. Coconut sugar is quite low on the glycemic index and it contains inulin. Inulin has properties similar to probiotics, and helps with gut health which can boost to the immune system. These are also grain free for you grain- free eaters. And, believe it or not, they are a lot easier to make than you would think. Just be very careful not to over bake.
When out of buttermilk one day, a swap of kefir (since it shares that nice bitterness quality) created this gluten free pancake recipe and a household favorite was born! Contrary to the name may imply, buckwheat is in fact gluten free. Kefir is chock full of probiotics which are gut friendly and will aid in digestion and really ups the health factor for these pancakes. We love using Kerrygold butter which is grassfed - awesome if you can find it! - and you can top these with a little more butter and pure maple syrup, some warmed up strawberries, heated almond butter, you name it!
Psssssttt....you can make these two cookies if you are craving some without having a huge tray of yummy cookies staring you in the face all day long. If self control with sweets can sometimes be a problem for you, this recipe is the solution! Yeah, it may be a bit of work, but it's likely all things you already have on hand and it'll come together quick. So quick, maybe no one will even realize you made them, so you can eat both. Your secret is safe with us.
