Double Chocolate Muffins {vegan, gluten-free}

Double Chocolate Muffins {vegan, gluten-free}

These muffins taste very decadently of rich, dark chocolate, yet they are surprisingly healthy.  I first came across the original recipe, created by Thomas, on his interesting food blog called “Full of Plants”.  His recipe is actually quite healthy as it is, but I wanted to try to eliminate any added sugars, preferring that any… Continue Reading

Polenta Soldiers {gluten-free}

Polenta Soldiers {gluten-free}

I’ve been making these polenta soldiers for quite a while, but just thought today to share the recipe. It’s easy to cook up, and makes a nice change from toast.

Einkorn Flour Sandwich Bread

Einkorn Flour Sandwich Bread

The first time I noticed einkorn flour at the grocery store, I just assumed it was like spelt; another ancient grain wheat variation. After a bit of research, I discovered that it is, in fact, wheat – however, it is the original wheat, the grain that existed before being hybridized by humans. According to information… Continue Reading
