Baked Goods Recipes
I tend to like to bake with a range of whole-grain flours. There is a world of flavor and personality beyond the realm of all-purpose white flour - rye flour, quinoa flour, buckwheat flour, teff flour, corn flour, and on and on. Have fun exploring!

A nut-free (school-friendly), double chocolate version of one of the most popular cookies on my site. Made with a banana-batter, shredded coconut, dark chocolate chunks, and oats. Butter-less, flour-less, egg-less, and potentially sugar-less cookies make great after school, travel, or post-workout treats.
A limoncello macaroon recipe along with a batch of photos from a cabin weekend in Mendocino. The cookies are golden-crusted, powder-coated, almond-citrus gems spiked with limoncello liqueur my sister made for me.
Kale quinoa bites - baked with feta, edamame, and onion for my Tokyo flight. A great little nutrition-packed snack or meal when you're on the go.
An incredibly moist and fragrant bay leaf pound cake from David Lebovitz's new cookbook. A perfect road trip cake.
A perfect, simple birthday cake. One that effortlessly handled the car ride from San Francisco to Los Angeles. Flourless and made primarily with almond paste and eggs, it's baked until golden, then flooded with a simple, smudge-proof buttermilk glaze.
Beautiful buttermilk muffins - berry-streaked with sugar-sparkled tops, big flavor, and buttermilk-tender texture.
One of the easiest cookies I know how to make - made from rolled oats, they're razor thin and lacy, golden, freckled with poppy seeds, with and anise accent from crushed fennel seeds.
Whole Wheat Raspberry Ricotta Scones - golden-crusted, tender, moist, barely sweet, and streaked with violet swaths and chunks of blackberry. They're beautiful.
The Saffron-Vanilla Snickerdoodle recipe from The Blue Bottle Craft of Coffee: Growing, Roasting, and Drinking, with Recipes.
A banana bread absolutely packed with sesame seeds, made with a blend of whole wheat and white flour, yogurt, ripe bananas, and lemon zest.
