Date-Sweetened Apple Crumble Bars

I found a way to use up all my apples this year. Date-Sweetened Apple Crumble Bars. I’m making these on repeat until I’m done with the 20lbs bag of apples we picked. I should start by saying that these apple crumble bars are not only sugar-free, but they’re also gluten-free, vegan and nut-free! Most importantly, they’re incredible (despite what you may think of something that’s gluten-free, vegan, nut-free and sugar-free). To be honest, Shaun and I ate 2/3 of the recipe over the first day I made it. It’s another one of those addictive dessert recipes. If I learned something since I stopped eating sugar, it’s that you can still make sweet, addictive recipes sweetened with fruit. Of…

Spiced Chia Applesauce

This spiced chia applesauce is part one of a recipe I’m really excited to share with you guys this week! It may be part of another recipe, but I wanted to share it on its own, since it’s perfectly delicious eaten as is. I’ll even say that it’s the best applesauce I’ve ever had (honestly). And this Friday, I’m sharing a delicious apple dessert recipe that uses it.  My fridge is currently full of applesauce from the many batches I tested over the weekend. I have to say, it was a good way to use up my 20lbs bag of apples – If you’re looking for more sugar-free apple recipes, I also love my sugar-free apple crisp and healthy caramel apple slices. Like…

Quick & Easy Chickpea Salad Sandwich

(This post is sponsored by Silver Hills Bakery) Today is all about easy lunches for school or work. More specifically, I’m sharing with you one of my favorite sandwiches: This quick and easy chickpea salad sandwich. Along with my other favorite lunchbox friendly recipes from the blog.  I first started making this sandwich approximately 3 years ago. I used a few recipes as inspiration, but most of the time, I just mixed whichever ingredients I had on hand without measuring. I just wanted something quick and filling for my lunches at work or university. I have no time for complicated lunches in the morning and I’m sure I’m not alone! For that reason, this sandwich has been my go-to lunch over the last few years, especially when I’m short on time.&nbsp…

Seriously Addictive No-Bake Seedy Granola Bars

If I could eat only one thing for the rest of my life, I would choose these seriously addictive no-bake seedy granola bars. I can honestly make a batch of these bars and eat almost half of it throughout the day. One for a morning snack, one with lunch, one as an afternoon snack and one or two in the evening… Half of the batch, gone. Oups. I could also make a batch and eat 2 or 3 bars before I even add on the chocolate. Like I said, they’re addictive! Probably not a good thing for someone with a sugar addiction. They may not have any added sugar, but that doesn’t stop them from being addictive. It doesn’t help that I’ve had a hard time with the photography for…

Date-Sweetened Hemp Milk (Two Ways!)

I finally made homemade nut milk. Or I should say hemp milk. It was about time! Everyone has been making their homemade nut milk for years and somehow, I just tried it for the first time a few weeks ago. I think one of the reasons I never made homemade nut milk before is because I never knew where to get a good nut milk bag. I had given up on the idea of making homemade nut milk until I stumbled upon Ellie’s Best. They were generous enough to let me try one of their’s and I have to say, I absolutely love it! I know many other food bloggers who use their nut milk bag and now I know why. It’s good quality, it cleans easily and it’s fairly cheap. If you…
