I’m just over here savoring all the summer fruit goodness August has to offer. Peaches are my jam for sure. If you’re like me and you tend to overdo it at the farmer’s market this time of year, buying up all the fresh, juicy peaches and stone fruit you can get your hands on, then realizing you can’t possibly eat it all, this Peach Jam recipe is your solution.
I can’t help it, I love peaches. And I’m the only one in my family who eats them, so this causes a bit of an issue when I see how many I actually bought versus how many I can actually eat. Instead of doing the unthinkable, aka throwing out summer’s bounty, I found a way to preserve my ripe peaches in the form of jam. Most importantly, the best part is this peach jam is not loaded with sugar and pectin like so many recipes out there. Besides that, this peach jam is paleo-friendly, has just the right amount of sweetness, and allows me to prolong my love for all things stone fruit for quite a bit longer.

Granola is a breakfast and snacking staple around here. And this version is ideal for paleo-ish folks like me who are looking for a delicious and easy gluten-free, easily customizable alternative to the pre-packaged brands. Bonus: It’s nut-free, too!
This recipe rocks! It combines healthy with sweet, a killer combo in my life, and it’s not one of those recipes you need to follow to the letter, also something that rocks. I’ve tried so many different kinds of granola out there – I find standard granola to be way too processed, sugary and calorie-laden. I find the Paleo versions of granola to also be too calorie-laden. I’m also not a huge fan of nuts or seeds period, let alone in my granola. So, I created my own granola recipe. And let me tell you, this one is awesome!
Here’s why this recipe rocks:
- It comes together quickly
- It will keep for a long time in your pantry
- It’s very customizable and versatile – breakfast, snack, plain, by the handful, over dairy-free yogurt, ice cream, fruit, you name it!
- It’s gluten-free, nut-free, and slightly sweet without any added refined sugar
