    Paleo Samoa Bars w Collagen (GF/DF/V/Paleo)

    Is it girl scout cookie season yet? I know we all look forward to that time of year, despite the fact that they are really just overpriced cookies (sold by adorable kids). What is your favorite girl scout cookie? Mine is the Samoa. There is something about that chewy coconut caramel on top of a crunchy cookie dunked in chocolate that gets me every time. But instead of buying a sugar laden processed cookie, I made my own Paleo Samoa Bars instead!! These are simple to make, taste delicious, and are secretly loaded in nutrients (you know how I love to sneak stuff in my recipes.) Cookies vs Bars I actually took half…

    Pumpkin Peanut Butter Collagen Bars (GF/DF/V/Paleo)

    Throwing pumpkin into everything this fall and that includes my classic Paleo Reese’s. While the original recipe is always a hit, these pumpkin peanut butter bars are especially delicious. They have just a slight pumpkin flavor that elevates them to the next level. As a mom, I am all about throwing healthy ingredients into the things our kids love (eh hem, smoothies). Are you the same way? These babies are loaded with collagen, which not only gives them a protein boost, but is also great for their hair, skin, nails, bones and joints. But shhhhh I won’t tell if you won’t. You guys know I love to talk nutrition so let’s get a…

    These Paleo cookies n cream bars are the ultimate treat. They are literally good for almost anybody: Paleo Vegan Refined sugar free Dairy Free Gluten Free They are NO BAKE (whoohoo) and take only about 15 minutes to make. I store mine in the freezer and just pull out 1 or two into the fridge when we are in need of some treats. I’ve been using a healthy superfood mix in a lot of my recipes called Nutsola. It’s a blend of nuts, dates and spices. They are gluten free, paleo and vegan. You can turn them into granola bars or use them in recipes like I do. I used their Cacao flavor…

    Paleo Mounds Bar (GF/DF/V/Paleo)

    Do you love the original Almond Joy & Mounds bars? Remember this commercial jingle… “Sometimes you feel like a nut. Sometimes you don’t. Almond Joy’s have nuts. Mounds don’t.” – Almond Joy Commercial circa 1980s Or does that totally age me?! Seriously though, I love Almond Joys and Mounds bars. I am a huge fan of coconut so of course I had to recreate this one in a healthy version: The Paleo Mounds Bar. They are gluten free, refined sugar free, dairy free, paleo and vegan friendly and my absolute favorite. Store them in the freezer and pull them out when you want something sweet. I have even chopped them up and put…

    Healthy Copycat Reese’s (GF/DF/V)

    Oops! I did it again. I made another healthy version of a childhood favorite. I mean, who doesn’t love chocolate dunked peanut butter? I don’t know about you but I happen to be a self proclaimed peanut butter expert. I mean addict. I mean expert. Whatever. I love peanut butter. Add some chocolate to that and I’m in! These taste just like the real thing but they are GUILT FREE (I said so), grain free, refined sugar free, gluten free, dairy free and vegan. Better yet, they are no bake and take only 5 minutes to make. That’s right. I said it. 5 minute Reese’s. Store them in the fridge and eat them…
