    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…

    The Best Chocolate Avocado Frosting (GF/DF/V/Paleo/AIP)

    This is the best chocolate avocado frosting on the planet. Featured here in my chocolate peanut butter Nutsola tart, but also delicious pipped inside fruit or straight out of a bowl with a spoon (not that I’m speaking from experience.) It took me a long time to make this. I kept thinking it would taste like avocado but you actually can’t taste the avocado at all!! The rich chocolately cacao powder takes over. The avocado makes it creamy. The coconut oil adds a bit of silk and shine. And the agave syrup and vanilla powder give it that true frosting sweetness. Health Benefits of Avocados We all know avocados are healthy. But why?…

    Paleo Chocolate Peppermint Cookies (GF/DF/Paleo)

    So these paleo chocolate peppermint cookies are my favorite EVER. They are BOMB. Technically they aren’t perfectly paleo compliant because I used crushed candy canes to decorate them. But otherwise, they are gluten free, dairy free, grain free and refined sugar “light” (is that a thing? LOL!) There is some dark chocolate in the cookies which do have some refined sugar as well as the candy canes that I just mentioned. Otherwise compliant. And you can totally leave out the candy canes but they are super fun. It’s the holidays, gotta live a little! My favorite cookie as a kid was always the Girl Scout Thin Mint cookie. I would freeze them and…

    The Best Fudgy Paleo Brownies (GF/DF/Paleo)

    Let me start ff by saying I have made a lot of brownies in my day. A lot. My family loves them so much. Especially with toppings, like ice cream or my 5 minute peanut butter caramel on top (recipe here). There are all kinds of brownies out there. But to me, the best kind are dense, fudgy and have extra chocolate in them. I like mine RICH. And that’s exactly how these are. These are the best paleo brownies around. Yum! Now, keep in mind, because I used coconut oil in this recipe they do have a coconut flavor to them. If you do not like the flavor of coconut with your…
