Easy Vegan Dulce de Leche or Caramel Sauce

caramel

  The other day when we were at the store both of my kids asked for those little packages of apples with caramel and I said no because of all the dairy and unhealthy ingredients. I was feeling bad ’cause they both wanted them so bad, but then when we were at the health food […]

Banana Chia Seed Pudding {Whole30, Paleo, Dairy Free}

pudding

  If you’re not familiar with cha-cha-cha-chia seeds (I couldn’t help myself, we sing that all the time around here!), they’re amazing. If you put them in liquid and let them set for a couple hours they soak up the liquid to make a thick, creamy, tapioca-like pudding. It’s a great way to get chia […]

Vanilla Pudding {Dairy Free, Paleo, Egg Free, Nut Free, AIP}

pudding2

      If you saw my chocolate pudding recipe, you know that we used to love the Snack Pack pudding cups before going gluten and dairy free. While we have been enjoying my chocolate pudding for some time, I have been unable to re-create the luscious and creamy vanilla Snack Pack pudding cups that […]

Paleo No-Bake Pecan Pie Bars

  My kids are always hungry, especially Lance. The medication he has to take for epilepsy literally makes him hungry all. the. time. He’s already gained quite a bit of weight since starting the medication and the doctor said to just make sure that what he’s eating is healthy. Now we eat pretty healthy around […]

No-Bake Brownie Bites {Easy}

no bake brownie bites

When I originally made these brownie bites I was trying to come up with a high protein chocolate snack to send in my kids lunches, so I just started throwing stuff in the food processor and tasting it until I thought it tasted good and became thick enough to roll into bites. I wasn’t sure […]

Spinach Artichoke Dip {Dairy & Soy Free}

spinach artichoke dip

For some reason I’ve been really craving spinach artichoke dip. I wanted dip that was rich, flavorful, and creamy… a dip that if I took it to a party no one would even wonder if I brought it. They would just assume that someone on a regular diet made it using cream cheese, parmesan cheese, […]

Copycat Whenever Bars

whenever bars

We are always looking for on-the-go snacks or granola bars and one of our favorite snacks are the Pamela’s brand Whenever Bars. I wanted to make my own copycat recipe because if we run out I’m not always able to run to the health food store, plus they cost about $5.00 for a box of […]

Oatmeal Fruit Squares

oatmeal fruit squares

These little fruit squares remind me of fruit and grain breakfast bars. After making these and then proceeding to eat almost the entire pan in one afternoon, it reminded me of my high school days when I would eat 3 or 4 of those breakfast bars a day -that’s way too many! I used 1/2 […]

Quick And Easy Homemade Caramel Corn

carmel corn 007

It seems like almost every Sunday evening we end up renting a movie and just resting. I thought caramel corn would be the perfect treat for our movie night, and boy was I right! Most caramel corn recipes require that you bake it on low for about an hour, then cool, then serve. I don’t […]

Yesterday I was looking through my cabinets for a quick and easy snack to send with the kids to school. I didn’t have a lot of time (or groceries), and this is what I came up with: Peanut Butter Rice Krispie Treats! I made them in less than 15 minutes and my kids loved them. […]

Our Favorite Trail Mix

trail mix 003

Lately I’ve had a problem coming up with quick and easy snacks. My kids seem to always be hungry, so I was trying to think of something that is nourishing, a little bit sweet, filling, and requires absolutely no prep. That’s when I remembered my trail mix recipe. I used to make this all the time […]

Easy Snack Idea – Sweet Potatoes

sweet potatoes 003

This snack idea is so easy that I almost didn’t even post it. It’s probably something totally stupid to post because maybe everyone does this… but eating sweet potatoes for a snack was new to me. I’ve always thought of sweet potatoes only as a side dish. When I make them I usually go the whole […]

No-Bake Peanut Butter Rice Krispy Bars

pb granola bars 010

I came up with this recipe because I was trying to copycat the EnviroKidz Peanut Choco Drizzle granola bars. Those are my son’s favorite bars, but I got tired for paying $4 for a box of 6 granola bars! – Especially now that school has started and he wants to take a bar to school […]
