Hi everyone! I wager there won’t be many people reading blogs this next week, so I’m pushing my recipe posts back until next Wednesday (January 2, 2013). I’ll still be posting a few cool things though! January will be fun because all the recipes I’m posting will be sugar-free…my husband and I are deeming it ‘DetoX-mas’…hehe… I’ll still be incorporating fruit into my desserts, but you WON’T see honey, maple syrup, coconut sugar/nectar, turbinado, sucanat, or agave (not that I use agave!). I’ll be using stevia in moderation, as I find it gives me some trouble if I use too much.
My husband and I both feel like we had a lot of sweets this past month, and we will be taking a break together!
It’s been a while since I’ve shown some link love, so here we go!
Recipes I Want To Try
- The Simple Moms Sugar Cookies
A simple recipe made from wholesome ingredients with a gluten-free option.
- Part-Time Health Nut Chickpea Fries
These look and sound delicious! I love socca and chickpea anything, so I really want to try these!
Made with cocoa butter (my new love), these look and sound heavenly!
- Nutritionist in the Kitch Frozen Pumpkin Pie Dessert
My husband and I were at his family’s house for Thanksgiving, so I never prepared my own pumpkin pie, but I know I need to make this before the year is over!
Recipes I’ve Tried and Loved
- Edible Perspective Maple Cinnamon Almond Butter
If you like almond butter just a little bit, you’ll love this sweet variation! I’ve made it multiple times and love it stirred into hot oatmeal.
- Veggie Nook Raw Banana Granola
No sugar, no oil, no kidding. Despite not having oats, this raw granola rocks!! I’ve made it many times and have difficulty keeping my hands out of the oven waiting for it to get done.
- The Detoxinista Better Broccoli Cheddar Soup
A great recipe made simple and healthy! My daughters love it too!
- Civilized Caveman Paleo Banana Bread
I stumbled across this recipe one day while perusing Foodgawker and immediately made it. It’s a delicious sugar-free alternative to typical banana bread, and it’s paleo! 🙂

Recipes You Should Try
We loved this stirred into almond milk (for me) and goat milk (for my husband). A healthy alternative to Hershey’s!
I’ve made these multiple times (trying to perfect the recipe), but each trial was so tasty that we’d finish off the batch that same day! The whole pan has about as many fat grams as a tablespoon of almond butter. You can’t beat that!
A tried and true recipe for hot chocolate (dochi, as my daughter calls it). So thick and creamy…you’ll be blown away!
Many of you re-blogged this, and I’m so humbled that you did! I love love love this recipe and haven’t made it nearly enough! Mint and chocolate are made for each other (sorry peanut butter)!
Have a Merry Christmas everyone!!
