A classic crowd favorite that is made from a combination of melted chocolate and almond butter then tossed in powdered sugar and mixed with M&M’s for the epic sweet snack. The first time I heard about this snack, I was intrigued. The combination of chocolate and nut butter has always lured me. I decided to… Continue reading →
Who needs oats for granola? This nutritional powerhouse is made with millet and buckwheat, along with chia seeds, pumpkin seeds, nut butter and coconut oil. It’s packed with protein and fiber and has a delicious nutty-sweet flavor. Serve the granola it on its own with yogurt or milk, or try sprinkling it over smoothie bowls or even on salads. The type of nut butter you use will affect the flavor, so go with what you like (I usually opt for almond butter or sunflower seed butter, but it’s up to you!). You can either sweeten the granola with honey or make it sugar free by using stevia instead. Different brands of stevia vary in their intensity, so be sure to taste as you go (I’ve also found that the more you eat stevia the more you become accustomed to its taste; if you’re trying it for the first time start small). Be sure to rinse the millet and buckwheat before combining them with the other ingredients—the moisture will help the granola to clump slightly. Sometimes I add chopped dark chocolate to this granola after it cools!
With a buttery nut crust and a maple pecan filling, these mini pecan tarts taste just like the holidays. You’d never know they’re made without refined sugars or gluten, or that they can be made in under an hour! The cookies are sweetened with maple sugar, a natural sweetener that lends loads of flavor, but brown sugar can be used in its place. The slightly salty, nutty crust, made with a mix of rice and almond flours, balances out the sweet center. (If you prefer, the crust can be made with ¾ cup of all-purpose flour instead of the almond and rice flours.) While I love the cookies just as they are (and they’re even better the next day), I’ll sometimes sneak a piece of chopped chocolate—either white or dark—in the tart shells before adding the filling, and then I’ll drizzle the tarts with more chocolate after they’ve cooled. *Be sure to take the cream cheese and butter out of the fridge a few hours before beginning (or even the night before), to soften.
