You know a recipe is a keeper when I make it more than once.

But when you make something on a weekly basis to always have on hand forever and ever…

Well then you have this recipe.

This is perfect in so many ways. Full of healthy ingredients but insanely deceiving. It tastes like the best frosty fudge. So chocolatey and satisfying. Bonus: We all know how terrible turning on the oven in the summer is! This solves all your summer chocolate problems.

coconut flour carrot zucchini muffins

Coconut Flour Carrot Zucchini Muffins! Healthy and Paleo-friendly

I loooove zucchini bread in the summer, and I get so excited for the time of year when gardens start exploding with their zucchini crop. I also love carrot bread and zucchini bread on their own, so I knew I would go nuts for them together.

Coconut Flour Carrot Zucchini Muffins! Healthy and Paleo-friendly

These definitely lived up to my expectations, as Detoxinista’s recipes usually do! I would have NEVER known how to adapt the zucchini/carrot bread recipe into something this good using coconut flour on my own–still trying to figure out coconut flour’s tricky ways.

Anyway, take your zucchinis and put them in this! Feel free to use 1.5 cups of all zucchini or all carrots if you want, or any ratio in between that strikes your fancy.

no-churn vanilla bean fudge swirl ice cream

There’s this ice cream recipe that’s been floating around, calling for just two ingredients and no ice cream maker! Aka it’s calling for miracles. It claims to make the creamiest ice cream you’ll ever taste.

Things like this always make me nervous, but after standing in the middle of the grocery aisle, considering buying the two ingredients (whipping cream and sweetened condensed milk) half a dozen times, I finally did.

THE Creamiest No-Churn Vanilla Bean Fudge-Swirl Ice Cream - no ice-cream maker required!

The verdict? Definitely super creamy and dreamy! Super super easy, and really simple to customize to whatever flavor you want. A little too sweet for my taste buds (but then again, I love healthy hippie green things on a daily basis), and definitely not the healthiest.

Plus seeing tiny flecks of vanilla bean never fails to make me happy!

dark chocolate drizzled macaroons [naturally sweetened]

Dark Chocolate Drizzled Macaroons - naturally sweetened, gluten-free, dairy-free!

I’ve hated coconut-flavored anything my entire life. But now I might be starting to like it?

Dark Chocolate Drizzled Macaroons - naturally sweetened, gluten-free, dairy-free!

It started with using coconut oil…and now I almost find myself craving toasty coconut. For all you coconut fans, these chewy macaroons are the best! The coconut flakes spend a little time in the oven before putting the macaroons together, so they get extra golden and toasted. Totally optional if you prefer traditional white macaroons instead!

Dark Chocolate Drizzled Macaroons - naturally sweetened, gluten-free, dairy-free!

They are very lightly sweetened with only honey, which I think is the perfect amount. Feel free to add a little extra sugar to taste, adding up to 1/2 cup of granulated sugar if needed. On the first day, these are crispy on the outside, and soft and fluffy on the inside. After that, store them in an airtight container, and they become soft and chewy and wonderful.

Double Chocolate Glazed Donuts - made with coconut flour! Healthy, paleo, gluten-free, dairy-free

Don’t have a single bad thing to say about these! They are sneaky chocolate donuts that are gluten-free, dairy-free and naturally sweetened with honey. I think I’m officially a super fan of coconut flour–when you get the ratios right, it just can’t be beat with its nutrition content and fluffy texture!
