When I first baked these cookies, I had a mean hankering for something sweet to match the season. So I got out my baking ingredients, dusted off the KitchenAid, and opened a new can of pumpkin because.. well, Fall. After a little mixin' and whiskin' I threw these puppies in the oven, and by some Autumn miracle they turned out perfectly. A little cakey, but not too much, perfectly sweet, and most importantly, a healthy treat! 

Enjoy these cookies with a cold glass of almond milk, a large serving of wine, or seasonal overload. 🍂

While these cookies have been lingering in my queue of posts for quite some time, the past month I've instead had my head buried in research and tapping away at my keyword writing my thesis - one of the final stops along my journey to become a Master Nutrition Therapist! Though now that I'm finished (yahoooo!), y'all deserve a TREAT (like some delicious cookies, maybe?) for being so patient. 

These cookies were actually a mistake at first, a complete flub of a raw dessert ball. However, after a quick addition of a few ingredients + a little time in the oven, they've become the go-to somethin' sweet in my household when we're looking to fulfill the after-dinner dessert craving. They've also become a fast favorite due to their easy + swift assembly, as well as the fact that they're made of ingredients that we most always have on hand - bonus!

Contrary to their name, they are not technically macaroons, but the shape + texture are somewhat reminiscent of a soft...

The weather yesterday was grim - a chance of rain quickly turned into a cold sprinkle, progressing into larger drops. It took every ounce of energy to ignore the desire to spend the entire day in pajamas instead. But we had spent the entire Saturday lounging, so were determined to brave the rain and lure ourselves out of the house with a sweet little date morning. So, we treated ourselves to a light breakfast out, some coffee (+ juice for me) and a trip to the Dupont Farmers Market. If you live in DC, or have visited the Dupont market, you know its a huge space with many vendors - a lot of which offer really beautiful produce, responsibly raised meats and even some super delicious ready-made goods.

After some strolling, dodging raindrops and other market goers, we came to a stand with gluten-free baked goodies (though I didn't catch their name). Since I've been eating GF for about 4 years now, any chance to have a fresh baked good that's me-friendly is a chance to celebrate -...
