OK, so I have a big sweet tooth… alright, a ginormous sweet tooth. I LOVE cakes, brownies, frosting… you name it! If it calls for sugar, I’m there! So, with that being said, I’ve been trying to create healthier versions of these items… and well, they have not been turning out too great. Actually, to be honest, my creations have tasted like things that shouldn’t even be edible. Just ask my kiddos and hubby! 😉

However, this is no longer the case… I am happy to report that I’ve finally found a wonderful recipe to satisfy that sweet tooth of mine. And guess what? My super picky 10 year old approves…

Grain-Free Chocolate Cake


1 cup almond flour
1 cup unsweetened cacao powder or cocoa powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup coconut oil, melted (+ additional coconut oil for greasing pan)
4 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup honey (or another sweetener of your choice)

Melted Dark Chocolate (at least 70% or more Cocoa – the higher the percentage, the better for ya!)

Optional Ingredients:
Chocolate Chips
Walnuts or pecans
Flavoring extracts

Pre-heat oven to 325 degrees. Grease a 9×9 pan with coconut oil. Combine all of the dry ingredients in a bowl. Mix well. Combine wet ingredients in a separate bowl and whisk together until incorporated. Now dump wet ingredients into bowl with dry ingredients and stir until combined. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until fork or toothpick inserted comes out clean.

Melt dark chocolate in saucepan or microwave and pour over cake! Enjoy! 😀

What is the HIP List?

Have you ever had moments when you're either out of time or out of printer ink, or both, and you really want to keep track of a "Hip" deal or print a valuable coupon in the next day or two? Or what do you do when an outstanding, but pricey, deal is posted and you want to save it for discussion with your significant other? Well, now you're in luck! No more searching through pages of posts to find the coupon or the deal. Simply add the post to your HIP List and access it at your convenience.

How Does the HIP List Work?

It's easy! To use this feature, you first must head on over here and register and log into your account. Whenever you find a great deal that you want to come back later to, just click on the HIP List icon located on each post (see images below) and the information will be saved in your account.


When logged into your account, you will then see your HIP List on every page.


If you're wanting to print a certain deal, article, or the Weekly Store Matchups from your HIP list, click on the small blue printer icon in the upper right corner of the HIP list. That will allow you to customize the information that you want or don't want to include in your HIP list so you're only printing the information that's most important to you!


If there are deals that you are not interested in keeping on your list, just click on the minus button to remove it.


Now, just print your customized HIP list whenever you're ready to go shopping and snag some "Hip" deals!
