Low Carb Cinnamon Almonds

I was busy cleaning and sorting through our freezer the other day and came across a bag of raw almonds. I vaguely remember purchasing them to make my own homemade smoked almonds. While searching for that recipe I came across another one for cinnamon glazed almonds. They sounded wonderful and looked even better with their sugary coating.

Grain Free Peanut Butter Cookies

While surfing the web for something new to try I had come across this recipe for peanut butter pie cookies. They are grain free though they do include honey as a sweetener.

I was never really a pumpkin pie fan though I do enjoy this pumpkin custard now and then. I’m more of an apple pie type of gal. My grandmother use to make the most delicious homemade pies with flakey crusts (made with lard of course!) and […] read more
