Cookie Cake!!!! Gluten & Sugar Free!

That's all time favorite for sure! 

A cookie cake made with no gluten, sugar, or dairy! What more could you ask for?!? 

Well I guess you could ask for it to taste good....and let me tell you, this one definitely does! 

When I gave up sugar in 2015, it was about 2 years in before I found a cookie recipe that actually felt like a cookie. I know that sounds weird, but many of the cookies I tried making just didn't FEEL like the texture of a cookie. Finally I found one though, and loved it! I never dreamed though that I would EVER be able to create a Cookie CAKE! 

And not only do I...the sugar free girl LOVE IT! But I had it tested by many sugar intakers over the weekend at my son's 3rd birthday and they also loved it! 

I made two of the Chocolate Chip Cookie Cakes with Eggland's Best Eggs, and stacked them on top of each other. Using the Chocolate Avocado Icing from my Simply Sugar Free Cookbook. Then of course I had to decorate it so that my 3 year old would go nuts over it! The cake fit the construction party theme! 

Another thing I love about this cake is that it's Gluten Free. I don't always bake things gluten free, but this year one of my goals has been to create more gluten free recipes, and this one is a major winner. 

Plus with the use of Eggland's Best Eggs, which are naturally gluten-free, and contain highly functional proteins, this cake adds essential nutrients that our bodies need. So if you are trying out some gluten free baking, Eggland's Best Eggs are ideal to use with gluten free flours to help them bind together since the gluten is being left out. 


This recipe is so easy to make, and is really, simply GUILT FREE! Usually I make one, and it's easily gone by the next day! My entire family loves it, even without the yummy icing and cute decorations! 



  • 2 Eggland's Best Egg
  • 3 TBSP pure maple syrup
  • 1/3 cup melted coconut oil
  • 1/3 cup peanut butter (no sugar added)

  • Use a rubber spatula and add in baking soda, cinnamon, salt, and almond flour. Mix thoroughly.
  • Add the chocolate chips.
  • In a pie pan, or 8 inch cake pan, use coconut to grease the pan. 
  • Add the cookie mixture to the pan and bake for 17-20 minutes

  • ENJOY!

Homemade Nut Butter Cups (No Sugar) #MommyMonday

I hope everyone had a great Easter with their family, and got a refreshed filling of the grace we are given in our lives due to Jesus sacrificing his life for us!  I will say that I am pretty proud of myself! I mentioned previously that I love Easter Candy, and that Easter is my favorite holiday. Well today I'm celebrating because I went the entire Easter holiday without eating any Easter Robbin Eggs or Starburst Jelly Beans for me. 

I did however have some chocolate.....but it was SUGAR FREE! 

What....? Is that even possible? I KNOW! I decided instead of buying my husband some chocolate Easter treat, that I would make my own, using 100% cocoa, and sweeten it myself. So that's exactly what I did. Check out these yummy PeaNut Butter Cups!

Am I WEIRD for making my own Easter Candy!?!? Is choosing to be DIFFERENT good or bad!?!? #MommyMonday

So, after making my own Easter candy, and chatting with a few friends, it got me to thinking.... Is being different, good or bad!?! Does making my own Easter Candy make me the "Weird Mom" !?!? 

You all know my passion for living the #LeaveYourLegacy lifestyle! I have a desire to create healthy choices for my family. To make eating REAL FOOD the norm, and the desired choice. 

I want to create a lifestyle that doesn't always use food as a "reward" or a special thing. I want to use experiences, or getting to do/enjoy special things together as rewards for my children, so that food isn't the thing that our lives are centered around. (I mean any more than it has to be, because obviously, we NEED food). 

But.....does desiring these things, and wanting to be different in this way....does it make me the WEIRD MOM!?

Obviously, being different, and even weird is okay to some extent! It's okay to not confirm to everything! I want my son to know that it's okay to be different. To stay true to your passions and who you are created to be, even if that is different from those around you. HI also don't want my son to feel deprived, or like he didn't get to fully experience things in life. 

How do you find the balance!?!

I have talked to two other moms this weekend who feel the same way. How do I do things that I know are better for my children (i.e. make homemade candy that is a healthier option for them, or not go all out with gifts for Easter, but instead focus on the true meaning of the holiday), and yet not be weird, or deprive my children of enjoying a holiday. 

Or better yet, can i protect them forever!? OBVIOUSLY NO! Even at a young age, my child will go to a birthday party that has tons of junk food and juices full of sugar that I don't have at my house. 

Things are going to happen outside of our homes that are different than the way we want our child to live, or things that we might not want them exposed to yet....or ever. So what do we do about it? Where is the balance?

I have decided, that I will raise my son the way I believe is right for him. For me, that is to eat healthy. That might mean not buying Starburst jelly beans for Easter, but instead making yummy, homemade treats together. Or that might mean filling his Easter eggs with dried fruit or stickers rather than chocolate eggs. But for me, that is okay, and I will be DIFFERENT, and I may be WEIRD, but I know that is what is best for my son. 

Then, when he's older, and he goes to a party where they have Oreos, and artificial juices, I will let him decide what he wants to do. And hopefully because of the way I have raised him, to not be centered around food, he will be enjoying playing with friends more than he will be focussed on those cupcakes. Or, if he eats the sweets, then hopefully, his body will tell him when he's had enough. 

So mom's....



Go with your Gut, with your Passions! 

Do what you believe is right for your children! 

And trust that they will always fall back on what you have taught them! 

This seems to go along quite well with the Easter focus being on Jesus, and then this post, so be encouraged with this Bible verse: 

"Train up a child in the way he should go, 

and when he is old, he will not depart from it." 

-Proverbs 22:6
