Paleo Applesauce Breakfast Bread

Paleo Applesauce Breakfast Bread

It’s Saturday morning, and I’m sitting on my patio sipping coffee and dreaming about breakfast. Most of my meals start off this way, with an idea percolating in the back of my mind.

One Bite Vegan Cookies

One Bite Vegan Cookies

This recipe for one bite vegan cookies was born out of a desire to recreate a cookie mix that I had found at Trader Joes the other day.
