Gluten Free Cinnamon-Sugar Cookies

Tomorrow is Valentine’s Day!  How do you celebrate?

This year my husband and I are staying in with the kids because we’re having dinner out next weekend with friends.  I always buy my kids some little sweet treat to celebrate and this year I made their classes Shortbread Bars with Cinnamon Heart Buttercream. It’s so good!

I also made some Gluten Free Cinnamon-Sugar Cookies for the first time this week.  I used coconut flour instead of regular flour, which I had never used before, and it gave it an amazing taste.  These cookies baked up so moist too and stayed moist for days after. Everyone that tasted them has asked for the recipe!

Have you been watching any of the Olympics?

I’ve been enjoying the skiing and skating competitions and we’re even getting to watch a bit of the action during the lunch break at school.  Our cafeteria and main foyer have TV’s that have been tuned to the Olympics so we can all get in the spirit of the games.  It’s amazing how much skill and talent we have in our great country.  I’m definitely proud to be Canadian!

Homemade Coconut Larabars | A Sweet Baker

Homemade Coconut Larabars

Lately I’ve been trying to eat healthy and I’m trying to avoid any processed food. It’s actually not that hard but when it comes to having a little sweet treat there’s always added sugar and things I can’t pronounce. When I first tasted Larabars I loved them but at $1.69 each I knew I had […]

Sunday was my Dad’s birthday and to celebrate I made these Pineapple Cupcakes with Strawberry Mousse Frosting.  They were so moist and flavorful and the mousse frosting was the perfect addition. My family and I are not big frosting/icing fans so using this mousse as the frosting was the perfect solution.  I don’t know why […]

Doodle your Pillsbury Toaster Strudel and Win! #Strudelgram

Just hearing the word ‘morning’ makes me cringe. I am not a morning person and I hate getting up to an alarm.  Making everyone breakfast during the week is the last thing on my mind when I wake up.  I just want to be left alone to get ready for work and get the kids […]
