Raw Goji and Cacao Bars

Almond pulp. If you make your own almond milk, you’ve undoubtedly had the dilemma of, “what do I do with all this leftover pulp?” Well, say hello to my Raw Goji and Cacao Bars. They are the perfect solution. They are also a delicious energy boost. Especially if you can eat them. I can’t, so I…

Raw Cranberry Orange Bars

I know everyone LOVES larabars because they are so clean! While they are definitely a Clean Plate approved purchase, there’s no reason you can’t just make your own (save money)! I’ve made my fair share of “larabar” knock-offs and original flavors! Ginger Date Bars Apple Pie Bars Chocolate Cherry Bites  Chocolate Minty Bites Chocolate “PB”…

Almond Joy Cups

Strikingly similar to my Paleo Peppermint Patties, these lil’ snacks let me bust out my super fun silicone cups! I love them. The peppermint patties are great cause they are nut-free, but the Almond Joy version has a really nice hearty flavor. A very substantial snack in my opinion. Get in yer healthy fats!  …

Minty Chocolate Bites

Today’s post will be short and sweet. My reason for brevity is two-fold: 1. I’ve got a couple of longer posts coming up. 2. I’m about to head out for a surf and the tide waits for no one. Go make these. You’ll be happy. Minty Chocolate Bites 2 c. unsweetened coconut flakes 3/4 c….

Sweet Potato Mash

As the Fall season approaches, I find myself more and more looking for some yummy, warm, satisfying root vegetables, squashes, and exotic spices. Don’t get me wrong, I love yams at anytime of the year. But there’s something about the season that makes my body WANT root veggies. Tomatoes, watermelon, basil; These summer delights are…

Chocolate Cherry Macadamia Cookie Balls

Longest name ever? Maybe. I didn’t want to leave anything out though because all those ingredients are magically delicious. Like Lucky Charms. Except without gluten… and marshmallows. Anyway…. I love coffee. And blueberries. And my new coffee cup. I decided to write a weekend post partially because I’ve been so bad at posting regularly that…

Cashew Macadamia Nut Butter

Seriously, what is it with Trader Joe’s discontinuing all these great products over the years? Anyone remember this… This stuff was delicious. Not to mention, it was a nice alternative to the standard almond butter AND it was stupid cheap compared to most nut butters you find in any health food store (14.99 for a…

Nutty Burgers

These babies are a huge hit with vegetarians  and carnivores alike. I love making these into BLT burgers with some wild Boar bacon from my local butcher and some beautiful summer tomatoes! This week I made them for my friend Hayley. She’s been a vegetarian since birth! She’s also an incredibe athlete and she needs good…

Almond Butter

Yet another post about nuts. Geez. I’m obsessed. Yes, I’m obsessed with nuts. There I said it. I have a love-hate relationship with them. I love eating them, my body hates digesting them. I look at my tummy and I say, ” Why? Why are you behaving this way?” It doesn’t answer. Only bad things…

Lemon Apple Bars

This is a variation on a snack bar that I make almost weekly… Ok, not weekly. More like monthly. They are great snack bars, somewhat akin to Lara Bars that you can buy in the grocery store. The difference with these is you have TOTAL FLAVOR CONTROL! Pick any dried fruit, nut, spice, zest, or…
