Lemon Thyme Bars (treats for the weekend :)



This is a light, earthly sweet treat, that is also nice and cool for those hot summer days. I especially love how the thyme shows through so beautifully in the lemon bars.

1 c. gluten-free flour blend (like Pamela’s baking mix or 1/4 c. of each: fresh ground buckwheat, brown rice, almond, & coconut flours)
1/2 tsp. Real salt
1 1/4 Tbls. fresh thyme
1 stick butter
1/2 c. powdered sugar
1/2 lemon juiced
1 tsp. gluten-free vanilla

*Mix first 3 ingredients. Mix remaining 4 ingredients and add to first 3. Press dough into bottom of a glass dish (9×9 square).Bake 30 minutes @ 350^ or until golden brown.

*Whisk together 1/2 lemon juiced and 1/2 c powdered sugar for glaze. Pour over slightly cooled dough and refrigerate until cooled completely. Garnish with fresh lemon zest and enjoy!

EASY PEANUT BUTTER COOKIES

by Tana Besendorfer (my amazing mother :)

1 cup creamy raw peanut butter
½ cup maple crystals (grind to powder)
1 egg (cage-free, organic)

That’s it. No, I’m not mistaken, this recipe contains no flour!
Preheat oven to 325 F. Mix the three ingredients together until well mixed. Refrigerate for a few minutes. Roll in balls and flatten with a fork. Bake for 18-20 minutes. For a little different approach, press into a 9×9 square baking pan and bake for 18-20 min. Cool, and spread with melted dark chocolate (Dagoba is the chocolate we use but any works) Easy Peasy!

  1. Hey Chandice! What an amazing cake! Since moving to Utah, I miss sprouts so bad! However, I am taking full advantage of real foods and their raw milk! We just bought chickens with my MIl, so we will be getting fresh eggs soon as well :) “Hope you are doing well, looking forward to keeping up on your site!
