Gold fall free printables!

Four gold fall free printables!


Hey guys! Have you noticed that it’s getting more and more like fall with everyday? Well, I guess that’s because it is fall. 🙂 This morning our lawn was covered in frost! It’s not even November yet and were already getting frost!
Have any of you put up the fall decor yet? I’m still working on it, and now I have these to add to it all! I have a couple other fall DIY decor that I’ll be posting pretty soon, and I’ll be doing either just a post of my shelves all fall-ified or I’ll do a fall room tour. Which one do you wan’t? 

I didn’t used to like fall, but now I love it! ❤️ I love the cozy feeling of fall, and the warm colors, red, orange, yellow. It’s so calm and beautiful!

One thing I especially love, is pumpkin spice! I love all of the delicious pumpkin-y foods! Pumpkin bread, pumpkin cookies, pumpkin muffins, pumpkin spice hot cocoa! I love them all! I just HAD to make one of the quotes about pumpkin spice! (Check out some of my fall recipes: Pumpkin breadPumpkin barsHomemade hot chocolateMini powdered donuts, Homemade peach pie)

The only downside to fall is that the weather gets cold and windy. I have never liked cold weather though. But I do love fall fashion! Sweaters, mittens, scarves, boots! I love it all! 😊 I can’t say that fall is my favorite season (I love summer the best) but I do still love it.

 Be sure to print off these four quotes below! And don’t forget, I just got Instagram the other day so don’t forget to follow me

*printing tip: when I went to print these, I made it so they printed half page instead of full size, if you do that they will end up the perfect size for a 4×6 picture frame. If you do full size they should end up about 8×10, maybe a little smaller. 

Print them off for free:

So I’ll eaither be doing a post of my shelves all decorated for fall or and entire fall room tour, which one do you want?

Homemade hot chocolate! (Dairy free!)

So, what’s happening with you? Anything exciting? Well, today I was freezing! And what I really wanted was: Hot chocolate! The only problem? I can’t have dairy!! 🙁 Solution! This recipe, from the healthy!

This hot cocoa is super simple! It takes about 5 minutes and is so delicious! I was really surprised when I had homemade hot cocoa in minutes! When I decided I wanted to make homemade hot chocolate, I was thinking: is it really worth spending a half an hour making it? My answer? Yes! Until I found this recipe!


There are six ingredients in this recipe: 

  • Chocolate almond milk (or any other dairy free milk)
  • Honey, or maple syrup
  • Vanilla extract 
  • Ground cinnamon
  • Sea salt

So, I found this amazing recipe on and just changed it up a little to make it a little more my style! Instead of using vanilla almond milk and cocoa powder I just used chocolate almond milk instead. It makes it a little bit easier. 🙂


Oh, P.S. I got instagram, be sure to follow me! And if you try this recipe, post a picture and tag @craftilybaking so I can see it!

Gluten free powdered donuts!

So, how was your week? Ours was a little crazy, being the first week of school and all. I made these on Wednesday, and the only reason they were still around on Thursday is that I had to take pictures for this post! 


I have been SO excited for this post! I am a donut lover! Donuts have always been my favorite, and being on the fodmap diet since the end of april has been pretty donut free! But then I stumbled upon this amazing recipe from!

These are a perfect little treat! Send them to school in your kids lunches, or eat them by yourself! They are great for bribing too! 🙂

These donuts are the ideal size for little goodie bags at birthdays, or you can use the for a fun game: Tie a string around the donut, have someone hold it up, and have another person try to eat the donut without hands! You can time everyone to see who can do it the fastest! We always love that game for birthdays!

Gluten free powdered donuts!
Delicious gluten free donuts, fried in oil and coated in powdered sugar!
Write a review
  1. 1 cup gluten free flour
  2. 1 tablespoon tapioca flour
  3. 1/8 teaspoon baking soda
  4. 1/4 teaspoon salt
  5. 1 1/4 cup water
  6. 1 rounded tablespoon brown sugar
  7. 1 tablespoon butter
  8. 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  9. coconut oil: enough for a 2 inch depth (for frying)
  10. 1/2 cup confectioners sugar
  11. 1 teaspoon vanilla powder
  1. In a small mixing bowl, combine the gluten free flour, tapioca flour, baking soda, and salt together with a whisk. Set aside.
  2. Bring water and brown sugar to a boil in a large saucepan. Once boiling add butter and allow to continue to boil until butter has melted. Turn the heat down to low and stir in the vanilla extract, pour in little bits of the flour mixture at a time, stirring constantly with a spatula. At the beginning it will look lumpy like it isn't blending together, just keep stirring and adding a little bit of the flour mixture at a time until it is incorporated.
  3. It will start to form a ball of sticky dough, remove from the heat and stir for another 30 seconds. Turn the dough out onto a cutting board and let cool for 10 minutes.
  4. While the dough cools,heat oil in a heavy or cast iron pot on medium high till it reaches 350-360 degrees. You want the oil to be at least 2 inches deep.
  5. While the oil heats, put the confectioners sugar and vanilla powder in a ziplock bag, seal the bag and shake to mix.
  6. Cover a plate with paper towels for draining the donuts after they cook.
  7. The dough should be cool. Use a knife to cut a tablespoon sized piece of dough off. Roll it between your palms (you might have to flour your hands), once the dough has formed a long rope, pinch the two ends together, forming a donut shape. Do the same with the rest of the dough.
  8. Once the oil has heated to 350, carefully lower one donut at a time into the oil (fry 3 to 4 donuts at a time) Cook for 5 minutes turning the donuts over half way.
  9. Once the donuts are done cooking,remove it using a slotted spoon and place on plate covered in paper towels to drain. Place the still warm donut in the bag of confectioners sugar and shake gently to coat.
  10. Let oil get back up to 350 and repeat the process with the rest of the donuts.
  1. If you dont have coconut oil, use a different mild flavored vegetable oil, like canola.

Homemade peach pie!

It’s official! I’ve started homeschooling! As of today. 🙂 So, on Saturday we had a ward party (for our church) and so I made two pies! One peach pie, and one gluten free strawberry rhubarb! (I’m saving the strawberry rhubarb for another post) Peach pie is one of the most perfect fall recipes!

These peaches were amazing! They are perfectly fresh and delicious! And the crust! Flaky, crunchy, and perfect!One of the key tricks to getting your lattice top on your pie to brown and look delicious, is to paint the top with egg whites and sprinkle it with sugar, right before you put it in the oven! (in above picture)

I love pie! It of my all time favorite desserts! And speak for your selves but I think this is one of the best pie recipes ever! I found this PERFECT pie recipe on I love this recipe so much!

Delicious healthy smoothie!

Wow! I’ve actually posted all three days this week! 🙂 Today I’ve got this amazingly delicious smoothie! And, it’s healthy too! (that’s always great!) I love this smoothie! We had it a couple months ago at a church activity, and I fell in love with it! Plus, I can eat it! It’s fodmap friendly! (If you use dairy free milk 😉 )

So, for those of you who are saying: wait didn’t she just post this a couple months ago? Yes, I did post it, when I first started my blog… so the pictures weren’t very good. (I didn’t have this wonderful backdrop!) So today I decided to make it and re-take the pictures. 🙂 I LOVE the way they turned out, thanks to this Aladdin Insulated Mason Jar Tumbler! I  love it! And it’s only $3.75! (Buy it through the link) I know $3.75 sounds like cheap junk, but its not! Its insulated so when the ice melts it doesn’t get water all over the outside! And it comes with a cute screw on lid and straw! ( I didn’t have them in this picture) I put everything in it, from water to smoothies! If it tips over hardly anything spills because of the lid! I love it! (I’ve had it for a couple of months and am planning on buying another one!)

So, this is a mostly berry smoothie. It has blueberries, strawberries, spinach, a banana, Greek yogurt, (or normal) milk, and honey (optional) This smoothie is a great way to trick your kids into eating healthy! You can not taste the spinach! Just give it to them and tell them its a blueberry milkshake. 🙂This is a great healthy treat! Its cold, smooth, creamy, and delicious! And it’s really fast to make! This is a great quick breakfast for back to school! Pair it with some protein and breakfast is served! And, if you’re on the go, put it in this awesome Aladdin Insulated Mason Jar Tumbler!
