May 24, 2017
Kale, Asparagus, & Chèvre Quiche with Almond Meal Crust - a simple but classy vegetarian quiche with a gluten-free almond-based crust.

Remember how I said I was so happy that eating gluten-free didn’t mean giving up on good waffles? Well add quiche to the list of amazing foods turned gluten-free because this one here is flippin’ fantastic. I honestly think this may be the first quiche I’ve ever made, and now I’m wondering what I’ve been doing […]

Blueberry Waffles {gluten-free, dairy-free}

May 18, 2017
Blueberry Waffles - A simple recipe for gluten-free, dairy-free waffles with crispy edges, fluffy centers, and plenty of fresh summer berries!

If you’ve been following along lately on the blog or Instagram, you might have noticed that there’s been a lot more gluten-free/dairy-free talk around here. Even though I’ve always tried to keep healthier recipes in the mix, this was originally (for the most part) a no-holds-barred, flour-filled, butter-filled, sugar-filled zone. That was fun (and still is!), but more and […]

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

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 […]

Let’s Get Cookin’: 10-Minute Creamy Salsa Verde Chicken Tacos {GF}

May 3, 2017
Creamy Salsa Verde Chicken Tacos - a flavor-packed, super easy weeknight dinner, Mexican-style. Ready in 10 minutes!

The story of these tacos goes wayyyy back (think 2014), and I’ve been in love with them from day one. What started out as a recipe from a friend of a friend turned into a girls’ night Mexican-inspired chicken dinner, which I then decided needed to be recreated, turned into tacos, and shared on the blog. The […]

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}

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, […]

Boozy Chocolate Meringue Tartlets with Gingersnap Crust {GF} + Thermapen & Thermopop Giveaway!

December 14, 2016
Boozy Chocolate Meringue Tartlets with Gingersnap Crust {GF} | www.brighteyedbaker.com

First things first: These tartlets are dangerous. They’re rich and sinfully chocolatey, topped with a little boozy meringue, and guaranteed to prevent you from stopping at just one bite. Don’t blame me if “just a taste” turns into an entire tart; you were warned, after all. Other reasons why I love them (and possibly also […]

Let’s Get Cookin’: Kale & Tahini Flatbreads with Roasted Chickpeas and Beet-Pear Salad

Kale & Tahini Flatbreads with Roasted Chickpeas and Beet-Pear Salad | brighteyedbaker.com

Truth: I may be good at cooking, but meal planning is sooo not something I excel at. The fact is I live the single-person’s kinda life where I only actually cook a meal about once a week and basically run my fridge out of food before I decide to make a trip to the grocery […]

Mixed Fruit & Oat Bars {GF, Dairy-Free}

November 3, 2016
Mixed Fruit & Oat Bars {gf, dairy-free}| www.brighteyedbaker.com

S’mores milkshake, marshmallow-stuffed cookies, gluten-free, dairy-free, pretty much guilt-free oat bars. It’s a natural cycle, right? I’ve officially devoted myself to being sweets-free this month, so I figured the blog should reflect that a little bit. I also mayyyy be trying to avoid thinking about dessert since there’s two huge bags of leftover Halloween candy […]
