deep dish chocolate chip cookie pie (no added sugar)

Just shy of three years ago, I made a deeply delicious, deep-dish chocolate chip cookie pie. Then I took a pumpkin spice spin on it.

Deep Dish Chocolate Chip Cookie Pie - Vegan, No Sugar Added

This version uses NO ADDED SUGAR. All of the sweetener comes from my favorite natural sweetener, Medjool dates. I love love love using dates for homemade Larabars.

Honestly couldn’t tell the difference between this version and the original version. Just as gooey and amazing.

My newfound love for coconut flour continues!

coconut flour chocolate chunk bars

So I tried baking with coconut flour for the very first time this past weekend, and I THINK I’M IN LOVE.

Coconut Flour Chocolate Chunk Bars

The recipe deserves much of the credit–another winner from Ambitious Kitchen.

I was completely stunned by how much I loved these! Even taking a whiff of the coconut flour out of the bag just smelled delicious. These bars are SO. SOFT. and beautifully fragrant with coconut. The texture is amazing. And considering the outstanding nutritional profile of coconut flour (low carb, gluten-free, alll the fiber!), I think I’m officially addicted to testing out every coconut flour recipe I can get my hands on.

chewy double chocolate snickers cookies

Chewy Double Chocolate Snickers Cookies

This recipe is another winner from Ambitious Kitchen!

Use any chopped up candy bar you want. The textures of the chewy caramel and crunchy nuts worked incredibly well in these, but can’t you practically taste how good Reese’s would be in these?
