Blog Bites XII

I composed this post before Lily was born, but never got around to publishing it. I deem this the perfect time to share with you some of my recent favorite recipes from around the blogosphere, as I’m not doing much cooking these days (I made a TON of freezer meals prior to Lily’s arrival!).

 

These Chocolate Chunk {Paleo} Cookies are some of the best healthy cookies I’ve ever tasted, and they are the genius creation of Gina from Running to the Kitchen.

I used almond flour instead of almond meal and dark chocolate chips instead of chopped chocolate, and they came out wonderfully chewy and perfectly sweet. The cookies are super soft, (very similar in texture to macaroons), and taste a lot like an Almond Joy candy bar, what with the coconut, almond, and chocolate flavors.

Regardless of whether or not you follow a paleo diet, you will love these cookies!

 

I also recently made Faith’s Bakery-Style Brownies (minus the frosting), which were delicious!

Other than omitting the frosting, I followed her recipe exactly as written and was rewarded with a pan of deeply chocolaty brownies.

I managed to set aside some of the brownies to freeze in anticipation of Lily’s arrival, knowing that I wouldn’t have time to bake… but would still crave a sweet treat ;).

 

To round out this installment of Blog Bites, I made these Pumpkin Waffles.

I subbed in arrowroot powder for the cornstarch and whole wheat pastry flour for the all purpose flour; the waffles turned out perfectly light and fluffy. Leftovers crisped up beautifully in the toaster oven!

I should have made another batch (or two) to keep in the freezer for quick breakfasts.
