September 1, 2017
A classic pie with a buttery gluten-free crust and tangy-sweet rhubarb-peach filling, topped with a fluffy cloud of rosemary whipped cream. Refined sugar-free!

Annnnd just like that, we finally have a pie recipe on the blog. It only took me… oh… 6 YEARS. How do you write a food blog and not share a single pie recipe for 6 years? Easy. You make tartlets and galettes and even pie crust rolls, but you do everything possible to avoid your tiny […]

Cranberry Chocolate Chunk Oatmeal Cookies

August 22, 2017
Cranberry Chocolate Chunk Oatmeal Cookies - Your classic, soft & chewy oatmeal cookies, mixed with tangy dried cranberries and gooey pockets of chocolate chunks.

I feel like these cookies are a little bit rebellious. They’re not seasonal, they’re not super trendy, and they’re probably not gonna do anything for your summer body. And yet here they are, in all their thick, chewy, oaty goodness, because there’s never a bad time to bring more homemade cookies into the world. The […]

Healthy Everything Breakfast Cookies {gluten-free, dairy-free}

May 10, 2017
Healthy Everything Breakfast Cookies -  Clean-eating cookies loaded with oats, nuts, & dried fruit - a sweet breakfast (or dessert) without the guilt! {gluten-free and dairy-free}

Cookies for breakfast!!! In my ideal world this is totally a thing, healthy or not. In real life, though I have definitely eaten cake for breakfast before, dessert is obviously a thing typically reserved for the evening hours (or at least after 12 PM). But hey, show me a cookie that comes loaded with clean […]

Apricot Almond Coffeecake | www.brighteyedbaker.com

Apricots & Almonds ♡… literally the perfect duo. More often than not when apricots are involved, I find a way to sneak in almonds (or almond extract, or almond paste, or a combination of the three) because I’m clearly just that obsessed with the combo. There’s my favorite scones & this amazing galette & even these GF, vegan granola […]

Fudgy Flourless Nutella Chocolate Chip Cookies | www.brighteyedbaker.com

Oh man, THESE COOKIES. They’re the definition of a flourless dessert – insanely rich and fudgy, and so so chocolatey. Think half brownie/half cookie, with nutella in the mix, and chocolate chips melting into every bite. They have slightly crisp edges and chewy centers, with all those gooey pockets of chocolate making for one intense chocolate […]

Strawberry Almond Financiers {gluten-free}| www.brighteyedbaker.com

It’s funny how sometimes the smallest little things can transport you to a different time of your life and bring back memories you probably never thought you’d look back on in the moment. It’s the sort of feeling you get when you hear a certain song or look through old pictures, and it’s also something […]

Healthy Chocolate Cacao Nib Truffles {gluten-free, vegan} | www.brighteyedbaker.com

You guys know how much I love healthy excuses for eating chocolate, right? And if you read this blog regularly I’m hoping we totally agree that dark chocolate is less of a dessert than it is a healthy treat. SOOO, following that logic, we can totally mix it up with cocoa powder, cacao nibs, almonds, […]
