Double Chip Chocolate Cranberry Cookies

These cookies are a combination of two of my Chocolate Chip Cookies with a little twist. I added a hint of coffee to blossom the raw cacao added to the cookies. These cookies turned out amazing, not too sweet, just the right amount of chocolate flavor and a sweet tang from the cranberries. It is such a lovely bite. The thing is, these are gluten-free, grain-free with no refined sugars. It makes me a happy girl to have a treat that is on the healthier side. These are perfect to start out your healthier living this new year and still have a little indulgence.

Pancakes

Here is another recipe that I am excited about. Pancakes. These might just become my favorite pancake recipe. So if you do not eat grains or gluten this recipe will make you happy. Pancakes are good for breakfast or breakfast for dinner. It is one of those comfort foods that you probably do not have very often, but now you can have it whenever you feel like.

Whisk together dry ingredients together in a medium mixing bowl. Add remaining ingredients and mix until well combined. Let rest while griddle or skillet is heating.

Lubricate griddle/skillet with cooking spray Pour out batter to desired size of pancakes. When bubbles form on pancakes it is time to flip the pancake over. Top with maybe some Blackberry JamĀ ,fruit or warm maple syrup.

Serve. Eat. Enjoy.
