AIP Peanut Butter Cups

The name of this post is kind of ironic seeing as how the recipe contains neither peanut butter nor chocolate. Well, I have decided to name it that anyway! You see, the coconut butter with honey and vanilla makes the filling taste almost nutty and the carob cream makes the whole thing a chocolate-y experience! I am NOT guaranteeing that this is as good as Reese's but I AM saying that if you are following the AIP, that these will make your eyes roll in approval!

AIP Cookie Dough Coconut Butter

As Christmas time approached, I struggled to think of something that my mom would ACTUALLY  like. I then had the epiphany that coconut butter was one thing that she enjoyed! Like, REALLY enjoys! So, that week we went shopping and I got 3 fresh coconuts. Which, wasn't out of the ordinary, I make my own coconut milk and I also dehydrate coconut for a snack. However, I was a tad concerned that when 3 coconuts simply *disappear* that she would notice! Thankfully, she didn't give it a second thought! One afternoon I was left behind from our weekly shopping trip to do school but instead, I whipped up some coconut butter. I added a little bit of this, and a little bit of that. Pretty soon, I tasted the concoction and my eyes bulged out. "WOAH" I said to myself, "This tastes JUST like cookie dough!" This would be PERFECT!

Sulfite Breakthrough!

Sulfite...What? If you had asked me two days ago what sulfites were, I would have given you a blank stare. Maybe it has something to do with vinegar...hmm. Well, yesterday as I was contemplating why on earth I had reacted to foods that were normally a part of my diet, when my mom suggested maybe it had something to do with sulfites (NOT sulFATE). We had eaten a meal a day prior that was smothered in balsamic vinegar and had veggies that were cooked in a white wine sauce. I was skeptical but I decided to look it up anyways. I figured a little research never hurt anyone ;) What I found was shocking!

Sometimes, you just need a date ball! And sometimes, you just need something sweet. Other times, you just want something that you can throw in a blender and have AMAZING DATE DOUGH pop back out! Because these delicious balls of goodness are no bake, you can have a pile of goodness before you can even say the words "THESE DATE BALLS ARE THE BOMB". Yup, its true ;)
