Overnight Oatmeal Parfait

We love oatmeal. We don't love how long it takes to cook authentic, old-fashioned oats. The kind that sticks to your ribs. The kind that tastes hearty and keeps you full beyond the morning commute. Here's a way to enjoy the goodness and health benefits of old fashioned oats, without sacrificing precious time in the mornings.

Pear Upside-Down Cake

An impressively beautiful cake for any occasion. Soft and sweet, and spiced with the wonderful aromas of cinnamon and pear. Best of all it's free of gluten and dairy.

We've omitted the dairy and eggs found in traditional baked goods and have, instead, opted for virgin coconut oil in place of butter, and flax 'eggs' instead of eggs. These swaps boost...
