This mango pineapple smoothie is super thick, creamy and can also be made paleo, vegan and dairy-free. Tropical smoothies are my thing in the winter. Grey + rainy for days on end? Time for this mango smoothie! A few weeks ago, my son ate an old mushy mango and thought it was the best thing […]

Peanut Butter Cookie Dough Energy Bites

These peanut butter cookie dough energy bites are flourless, grain-free, gluten-free and naturally sweetened with honey. You only need 5 ingredients that you probably already have in your pantry! These are probably my simplest energy bites yet.  And you would not believe how fast they were eaten.  They’re like cookie dough so I think you […]

To say I’m proud of these little candies is an understatement.  I’ve made coconut butter before but I’m not usually a huge fan unless it’s in or on something, or at least slightly sweetened.  I don’t know what popped into my head to try this combo.  And I’ll be completely honest, the room temperature mixture […]

Well, just a quick post again from me today.  I wasn’t planning on posting these today but then I realized they might make a perfect little treat, or even gift so I might as well post them.  I’ve been making them for quite some time now, and I even posted about them before with an […]

Individual Apple Crisps

Apples are one of my favorite fruits.  I have no problem eating them plain, by themselves, but apple desserts are some of my favorites too.  And there’s nothing better than hot, fresh applesauce from the stove.  Or raw with peanut butter.  Or… OK, so I could go on and on.  In fact I think I’m […]
