Fall Recipe Recruits – Top 5 Healthy Picks


There are days when my coffee should be this big.  When when I’m eating well, I don’t need it!  Jk…I’ve had coffee every day since i was 12…slight exaggeration but close to the truth.  Regardless, I like drinking coffee for the taste and ritual, not because I need the caffeine to stay awake!  I bake all year long, of course.  However, there’s something extra special about baking in the Fall.  A lot involves corn syrup, gluten, artificial colors.  All that fun stuff that makes you fall into a sugar coma.

There are  sooooo many options for you instead of using those cliche, unhealthy recipes.

Sidenote: I hate the word “healthy.”  It’s become so overused and blah sounding.  What does it actually mean?  “Healthy” is different for everyone!  I wasn’t exactly sure how to classify these picks.  Feel-good? Fresh? Clean? Ugh, how about just good-for-you?

Setting scene for me in my kitchen: I’m wearing an oversized sweater, these leather leggings, and some comfy socks. That’s how I’ll be dressed to bake these recipes.  All of these will be tested so stay tuned!

I’m selective when it comes to these things because I’m made so many different desserts.  Here’s what’s on my list!  Top 5 healthy picks.

Salted Caramel Cups

Omg, have you seen these?  Holy, sea salt.  I think this will be my first choice to make.  I’m a total sucker for sweet and salty.Paleo-Salted-Caramel-Cups-10.jpg

Classic Apple Pie (Autoimmune Paleo)

I’m going to finally perfect pies.  Starting with this one.ApplePieCollage

Pumpkin Waffles  

I love this site for clean recipes!  Pumpkin is the ultimate autumn flavor and I don’t care one bit if i’m #basic.pumpkinwaffles1.jpg

Maple Pecan Glaze (Dairy-Free)

I’m going to drizzle this on some muffins…and some zucchini bread…and oatmeal…and probably eat it by the spoonful if it’s half as great as it looks.SONY DSC

Paleo Pumpkin Coffee Cake 

I love crumbly, streusel topping but don’t love all that bleached, refined sugar. This is golden!IMG_3502-900x1358
