Cinnabomb Pizza


My Saturday night indulgence was the bomb! I’m calling this gluten free dessert “Cinnabomb Pizza”!

We LOVE Against the Grain Gluten Free Pizza Crust and my husband has been begging for a dessert using this crust, so I finally did!

This is like a Cinnamon Roll with a nutty background flavor. This is a cheese based crust but you don’t even taste it! This crust bakes to a perfect crunchy & flakey crisp. I’m not a fan of floppy pizzas.


So, here’s what you need:

  • 1 Against the Grain Crust

The Spread:

  • 1c unsalted Kerrygold Irish Butter,  softened
  • 1c Coconut Palm Sugar
  • 1/2c Gluten Free Rolled Oats
  • 6 tbsp Cinnamon

The Cream Cheese Glaze:

  • 4tbsp unsalted Kerrygold Irish Butter, softened
  • 2oz Organic Valley Cream Cheese,  softened
  • 3/4c Powdered Sugar Substitute (3/4c of Xylitol OR Erythritol & 1tbsp of Arrowroot Powder, I used my Breville blender until powdery)
  • 1/2tsp of Vanilla Extract

Pre-heat oven to 375.

In a small bowl combine the dry ingredients of the spread then add the softened butter and mix thoroughly to make crumbles.

On a frozen crust, spread the mixture evenly. Keep the outer inch of the crust exposed. This allows room for the bubbly gooeyness to spread.

Bake for about 8 to 10min or until lightly brown.

Now make the glaze! Combine Xylitol and Arrowroot powder together.  In a separate bowl, beat the softened butter, cream cheese and vanilla extract. I used a handheld mixture to beat on high. Slowly add the powdered sugar into the mixture and continue to beat until it becomes a thick glaze. Drizzle over pizza and enjoy by itself or add a scoop of Halo Top Vanilla Ice Cream!

I cut it to yield 12 small slices so that I can have a yummy little taste.

Organic Hot Cocoa w/Star Anise & Cinnamon


It’s a hot cocoa kinda night! I fell in love when I first created this lightly sweetened cup of chocolate heaven.

This recipe calls for organic ingredients and is dairy free.  It’s honey sweetened but can be substituted for 1 to drops of liquid glycerin Stevia.

Yields 2 cups

  • 2 cups of Almond Milk, vanilla, unsweetened
  • 2tbsp of Organic Cocoa Powder
  • 1tbsp of Raw Unfiltered Honey (or substitute w/1 to 2 drops of liquid Stevia)
  • 1tsp of Organic Vanilla Extract
  • 1/4tsp of Organic Cinnamon
  • 1/4tsp of Pink Himalayan Salt
  • 2 Star Anise
  • 2 Cinnamon Sticks

Place milk & Star Anise into a pot and warm milk over medium heat for about 5 to 7min.

Meanwhile, combine cocoa powder, cinnamon, salt, honey and vanilla extract in a bowl and mix to a thick paste.

When milk is warm and a little bubbly, add the cocoa mixture to the pot and stir until thoroughly mixed.

Turn off the heat and serve with one star anise & one cinnamon stick in each cup.
