    Paleo Friendly Pistachio Honey Blondies (GF/DF/Paleo)

    I had a huge bag of pistachios starting at me in the cupboard and in my mind I created these amazing pistachio honey blondies that were out of this world. So I set out to make it. Fail.

    Vegan Superhero Fruit and Nut Bars (GF/DF/V/Paleo)

    I originally intended to call these “superfood bars” but my kids kept calling them superhero bars and eventually the name just stuck. These delicious fruit and nut bars are super simple to make, chock full of healthy ingredients, and taste delicious. In fact, I have made them three times in the last month! Vegan Superfoods Now let’s talk about what’s in these bad boys. First we have lots of nuts and seeds including walnuts, chia seeds, flax seeds, hemp seeds and sunflower seeds. Did you know, a study found that eating fruit and nut bars are NOT FATTENING despite the increased calories? That’s right. They will NOT make you gain weight. Maybe it’s…

I just love peanut butter so much that my sauce has quite a bit of it in there. Did you know that there was a study that showed women who…
