Nature’s Candy Apples

Alrighty, by now you have figured out that I like treats and I do my best to avoid using granulated industrial sugars of any kind.  I do use pure maple syrup and honey in some recipes and I am doing my best to reduce and eliminate those ingredients.  It is still sugar no matter how you perceive it, but a better alternative to industrial sugars. Dates are what I focus on using for added sugar.  These bites of heaven do more than satisfy a sweet tooth (and one does the trick!) they are packed with fiber, potassium, carbohydrates and magnesium that the body can digest easily.  They are great for sports, biking or running for a long duration.

AmazeBalls

This is a re-post because I love these delightful little balls of decadence. They are the easiest and most enjoyed treats I make for get togethers, school/sports parties and just because, so give them a whirl and try to eat just one :)

Chocolate Peppermint Cake

The girls helped plan the Christmas dinner and dessert for the four of us.  We had Rolled Tacos for dinner and Ava had picked Chocolate Peppermint Cake from the Vegan8. Brandi over at Vegan8 is a frequent guest in our kitchen (not physically, although I wish) her recipes have been some of the most used with our family and we have had some great success with the end results. So when this recipe came through, I showed the girls and they said, that’s dessert!

Oh my, this is the quickest, easiest and tastiest treat to make. The hardest part is waiting for it to be ready to slice into! I had not made a treat in a while, and was wanting something chocolaty and cold since we have had this unusual nasty muggy feel like you want to shower when you walk outside weather. I had remembered seeing Veggies Don’t Bite post this recipe a couple days ago and was so happy to see the little ingredients it required. I didn’t have the exact ingredients so I used what I had and it turned out great. Best part is there is no oil, dairy free, soy free and gluten free. Love that you can spice it up how you like it!
