Coconut Cookies (Paleo)

These flour-less, nut free cookies require only 4 simple ingredients. They are so easy to make that even a novice baker will master them in no time. These will be the perfect companion to your tea/coffee.

Paleo Zimtsterne (Cinnamon Star Cookies)

Zimtsterne traditionally consist no flour as they are made using almond meal. By replacing white powdered sugar with coconut sugar, these cookies just got even healthier.

Almond Flour Halwa (Paleo/ gluten-free)

Using almond flour instead of semolina and sweetened with dates instead of sugar, this is a much healthier version of traditional sooji ka halwa (semolina halwa). Serve it at breakfast for a morning energy boost or enjoy it with your evening tea for some warmth in the chilly winter evenings.

Pumpkin cake

Made with whole wheat flour, sweetened with dates. Having the crunch of walnuts, moisture from pumpkin and hints or orange, this cake couldn’t get any healthier. Oh wait! Did I mention the cream cheese frosting sweetened with maple syrup?

Apple Donuts

These are a great way to satisfy your kids’ (or your) donut cravings minus the unhealthy amount of sugar and dough. Mine love them as much as the regular donuts and always consider them as treats.

Homemade Pineapple Jam

You wouldn’t believe how easy it is to make your own homemade pineapple jam. This jam has been one of the life savior for me. My kids can have it for breakfast, lunch and dinner (if permitted 😉).

Dark chocolate, flourless cookies (Paleo)

Chewy, chocolatey and crispy, what more could you ask from a cookie. But wouldn’t it be perfect if it could somehow be made healthier? These dark chocolate paleo cookies definitely tick all these boxes.

Flourless Banana Pancakes

My family love these pancakes and prefer them over the regular (with flour and sugar) ones. I promise if you tried them once, you might never go back.

Shahi Kaiserschmarrn / Indo-German Fusion Dessert

Shahi-Kaiserschmarrn is a fusion of an Indian dessert shahi tukda and a German dessert Kaiserschmarrn. When the giant pancake (kaiserschmarrn) absorbs the creamy thick milk (shahi-milk), magic happens.
