Easter is going to look a little different this year with most of us likely at home due to the current health crisis. That isn't going to stop us from continuing to celebrate! It's the perfect time to take on a new skill like baking, which is why we've got lots of new recipes to share with you all!
We will also be offering a FREE Cake Class via IG Live on Saturday, April 4th at 4pm PT and helping you bake our highly requested carrot cake! Grab a drink, turn on some tunes and Join us for a Live Baking Party! *RSVP not required. Sign-up for our newsletter below to receive the Carrot Cake Recipe and Ingredient list in advance.
The debate is out- Cadbury Eggs, Pastel colored M&M's or Peanut Butter filled M&M's? We couldn't decide so we threw in all three of our favorite Easter Candy into these cookies and they did not disappoint!
These cookies whip up in just a few minutes and don't require any butter and can be made gluten free! We used Garbanzo Bean Flour which does have a somewhat earthy flavor but balanced well with the oats and coconut oil. As always, I encourage you to explore with the recipe and try different gluten free flours.
These cookies are chewy, slightly crunchy and not to sweet *They spread on the pan so be careful to not overcrowd the baking sheet!

If you are looking for the classic Funfetti flavor we all love in a birthday cake but with less sugar- look no further! This recipe has 50% less sugar than the standard cookie but it doesn't compromise the soft yet crunchy texture that want from a cookie.
I love a standard cookie recipe but what I don't like is that gross aftertaste from all the sugar. Our first attempt was making Funfetti cookies using a box cake mix which yields the sweetest cookies because you can't control the sugar level.
So I was on a mission to adjust the sugar content and get it as low as possible. The color of these cookies are slightly yellowish because we added cake batter extract which has a yellow die. If you don't have the cake batter extract on hand, no problem! Use Vanilla extract (sub amount listed in recipe). We use a combo of cake batter and vanilla to bring out the desirable taste we all love from cake batter!
