5-Ingredient Mondays: Cranberry Pomegranate Sauce, Chocolate Peppermint Rice Crispy Treats & Chocolate Caramel Cups

I’ve had a weekend of learning. First I learned that our puppy loves snow. He was running and jumping in piles of snow today that were taller than him! Very adorable and very messy. Because of this I learned very quickly to keep a towel by the front door so he can be dried off before he drags snow all through the house. I also learned today that when my best friend visits and we go to my favourite bakery (Bunners) the freezer is my friend. Look at all the treats we picked up today:


And we got cinnamon buns too, but they wouldn’t fit in the picture. Glutinous? Absolutely. That’s why the freezer is my friend. I managed to eat two cupcakes (red velvet and banana rum) before I couldn’t handle any more sweets. My fingers are crossed that my cinnamon bun and left over cupcake freezes well so I can enjoy it in the near future. Oh, and in case you’re wondering, yes, those are finger marks in the icing of each cupcake. Who doesn’t dip their finger into the icing the second they are in arms reach of a cupcake?

Anyway, that’s enough learning for a Sunday for me, so let’s move onto 5-Ingredient Mondays. This is a place where bloggers link-up their gluten-free recipes. You can check out all of last weeks submissions here! And here are my favourites from last week. Yes, even after eating two cupcakes today, my sweet tooth is still going strong and clearly doing the picking!

There’s my submission to 5 Ingredient Mondays, what will yours be this week?

Please review the following guidelines before linking up:

  1. Recipe should contain 5 ingredients or less, pantry staples excluded. So basically anything that is likely to be found in most peoples kitchen/pantry does not count as an ingredient, neither do optional ingredients. Examples of kitchen/pantry staples may include spices, baking soda, baking powder, milk/non-dairy milk, oils, etc.
  2. Recipe must be gluten-free. Bonus for recipes that are also dairy-free and double bonus for plant-based recipes.
  3. Lastly, please leave a link to your own recipe that goes to that week’s 5-Ingredient Monday post, not on this static page.

Your recipes don’t need to be from this week, but it does need to be your own recipe. I will sometimes share photos of the recipes with links back to your blog, so by sharing your recipe, you are giving me permission to use your photo and link back to your recipe.

  4. I actually just bought a freezer! I was making do with the tiny compartment inside my fridge but that was madness.
    I’m late to the party this week but am bringing my healthy, no-bake cranberry jam tarts.
