No Bake Snickerdoodle Truffles

Put these No Bake Snickerdoodle Truffles on your must make list!  When I was shopping at Whole Foods the other day, they were giving out samples of these vegan snickerdoodle truffles.  While they were very delicious, the ingredients were definitely not the healthiest.  So when I got home, I set out to make my own version and I think they came out pretty good.  If you love truffles, you must also check out these dark chocolate raspberry truffles, and these pecan caramel truffles.

Sweet and Spicy Roasted Peanuts

These Sweet and Spicy Roasted Peanuts will become your new favorite snack.  Perfect for game day snacking too.  They pack big flavors with hints of sweetness and an extra kick of spices.  Just like my maple glazed pecans, this recipe is going to be hard to stop eating!

If you have an allergy to peanuts, I do think any other nut should work as well.  Sunflower seeds or pumpkin seeds might also work for a nut-free option.  You can make these up in about 10 minutes.  Super easy snacking!

I also think roasted chickpeas may be delicious with this seasoning.  I think I will try those next.  In the meantime, I hope you enjoy these roasted peanuts as much as we did!

Sweet Potato Chickpea Stir Fry

I am super excited to share this Sweet Potato Chickpea Stir Fry recipe since it contains many of my favorite foods! I could seriously live on sweet potatoes and chickpeas. This recipe is great for so many reasons.  It makes A LOT of food, so it’s great if you batch cook and freeze some meals.  It’s also very inexpensive to make.

This sweet potato chickpea stir fry is vegan and gluten free.  It’s also very versatile.  I think you can add other veggies in here as well.  I think red bell peppers or kale would be nice additions.  I like to make large batch recipes like this and then freeze in serving sized portions.  Then I can just grab and thaw exactly what I need, instead of thawing out this gigantic container and only using a little.
