Oh my gosh! I can’t tell you how much I’m in love with this heavenly after dinner treat. Actually it’s an any time treat if you ask me, it’s so darn good! And …. sshhhh… Don’t tell anyone there ain’t a speck of cane sugar in here. Yes, you heard me. Seriously there isn’t any sugar and don’t get me wrong, there aren’t any icky artificial sweeteners in it either. It’s pure and clean. Made with date syrup, cocoa chips and grass fed butter. These delightful balls are then rolled in unsweetened cocoa and cocoa nibs.Continue reading

Introducing Shamim’s Pantry Pasture Grazed Ghee
Hi my dear friends and fellow bloggers!
Again… it has been a tad bit too long since I wrote to you last. As I mentioned in my previous post I was working on “Project Ghee”, well I don’t think I called it that exactly … but it sure does sound good right now 🙂
Anyway, let me tell you what I’ve been up too. I’ve been preoccupied with ‘GHEE’, now I’m sure you shaking your head and thinking, “Really Shamim, like you had to tell us that!” (sarcasm intended) Well, of course it’s ghee. Ghee all the way baby!
Since the beginning of this year, Continue reading
Chocolate Chip Shortbread Cookies with Coconut Sugar and Ghee
From the Archives… Another favorite! Just made them again today, and they were delicious!
I craved something sugary but not cane sugar sweet. I had an idea, maybe something with a little more depth – a sweet treat with coconut sugar. Already my mind was swirling and I began tampering about in my kitchen experimenting. I thought to myself, “Well, if I was to use coconut sugar I might as well make it gluten free AND add ghee as its base.” A few days later I came up with this recipe. This revelation happened months ago and I have since, made it umpteen times and it’s practically begged to be showed off.

Date and Brown Rice Crispy’s
I was wondering if I could entice you with this recipe for juicy mejdool dates, slowly melted in ghee until thick and syrupy. I toss in some brown rice crispies, dried coconut and a bunch of chopped almonds resulting in a slightly gooey, moist, ghee-ey, crunchy and not overly sweet treat.
My date bars will hit every level of any sweet craving you may have and guess what? It’s not too bad for you. With no refined sugars or flours and made with just a few natural ingredients you will be laughing your way into Valentines day!
Whilst perusing the grocery store aisles lately, I’m sure you’ve been inundated with rows upon rows of gleaming chocolate wrappers hiding there treasures within, and begging to be slipped into your cart to be devoured shamelessly later. Continue reading
Chocolate Ginger Cake
Adapted from Baking, From My Home To Yours by Dorie Greenspan
Fortheloveofghee.comWith a hot cup of chaa in my hand, I stared out my window into the winter wonderland before me. The snowflakes gently floated from above in a steady haze of cool white. Slowly, ever so slowly they whisped side to side eventually settling atop a mound of snow. We had our first real snowfall a couple of weeks ago and it has been gradually accumulating ever since. I could have sat there forever, watching this delight but alas I knew the kids would be home soon and I really should’ve been baking something for their afternoon snack. Continue reading
