These monster Halloween cake balls are the perfect Halloween sweet treat – easy to make, ridiculously delicious and super fun to decorate. They are gluten free, with a dairy free option, and are easily transformed into Halloween themed cake pops by simply throwing some cake pop sticks into the mix.
What do you call a sponge cake that hasn’t reached the cake stage yet? Cake sponge? This isn’t a trick question… I’m just overthinking (slightly) very irrelevant things again. I tend to do that – chasing an idea like an over-eager puppy, until words lose their meaning and I’m off on a completely different tangent. Strange brain, you say? I prefer ‘interesting’. ‘Entertaining’ works too.
These gluten free witch hat cookies are both spooky (in that totally adorable way) and super delicious. The perfect Halloween cookies to make with kids (big or small), have fun and enjoy the amazing flavours of the gluten free chocolate cookie + 3-ingredient pumpkin buttercream combo. (Psst, I’m also giving you a template to help you make the prettiest witch hat cookies ever!)
Here’s a fun fact about being a food blogger: you get to fully immerse yourself in the holidays… a few months before they actually happen. This weekend was chock-full of Halloween mishmash. No surprise then, that Monday was just plain weird. Like emerging from a bubble (filled with shockingly green sprinkles, too much pumpkin puree and those cute candy eyes that get freaky reeeeaaaal quick), only to realise… oh, it’s only September.
These paleo pumpkin brownies combine the very best of fall desserts – with chocolate. Super fudgy healthy brownies meet refined sugar free pumpkin pie filling in this simple and easy fall dessert. Plus, the brownies are gluten and dairy free!
You might think, looking at all the pretty pictures and reading my almost over-enthusiastic descriptions of how yummy everything is, that every single recipe I think of works. Hah, definitely… NOT.
Now, most of the recipes I dream up work… eventually. But all of them? I wish.
This gluten and refined sugar free pecan pie is a super delicious take on the traditional version. It’s far less sugar-heavy, and has a rich, aromatic pecan frangipane as the filling. The gluten free pie crust is buttery and flaky, and completes what is an amazing gluten free fall dessert.
Okay, confession time. Before this recipe happened I’ve never eaten pecan pie before. It simply isn’t a thing in Slovenia (where I’m originally from). Pecans are a tricky thing to come by and nut-based pies aren’t hugely popular over there (other nut-based desserts are, but pies… not so much).
