gluten free - vegan - yeast free - soy free - corn free
Can everyday be Sunday?
There's something slower, something sweeter, simpler and more divine about Sundays.
Thankful God gave us this day of rest and holiness and beauty. We slept in (thank you Grey!) and made our way slowly,but hungrily, into the kitchen where my little one helped make fluffy, warm and sweet ooey gooey vegan cinnamon rolls from scratch.
More laborious than most of my other recipes, but so worth it. I would definitely mark them down in the treat column because it's one of the very, very few recipes where I used cane sugar, but they are gluten free, soy free, yeast free, corn free and completely vegan!
The trick to making buttermilk cinnamon rolls without the buttermilk? Lemon juice in coconut or almond cream! A trick I'm SO glad I learned early on. Have a blessed and happy Sunday with those you love.
Ooey Gooey Vegan Cinnamon Rolls

So I did a thing.
And it was amazing.
My son asked for donuts last weekend and I awoke to find I was out of our gluten free 1 to 1 flour. What's a mom to do?!
I grabbed a bag of our gluten free pancake and waffle mix and decided to sub it for my normal donut recipe flour. Having just returned from his first camping trip, with a newfound love of S'Mores, I tossed a few mini marshmallows on top and some crumbled GF graham crackers.
He. Ate. It. Up. Literally. And I have to say, I love my original donut recipe, but the pancake mix added a subtle sweetness and moist, chewy, cakey consistency that made these highly addictive and disappear before the weekend was over.
Nosh & Nurture was born of this journey I am on to better the health of myself, my family and those around me. What started as a simple compilation of recipes has grown to a all-around lifestyle journal with ways to incorporate organic products into your home, pantry and beauty cabinet. I also include stories on pregnancy, new motherhood, travel, Proverbs 31 marriage, and spiritual health, as I am a Christian who couldn't do any of this without my Lord & Savior Jesus Christ.

All recipes are gluten-free and dairy-free with a lot of soy-free, grain-free, sugar-free options.
