Another great thing about this ice cream recipe is that you don’t need an ice cream maker to make it! Anyone can make it as long as you have a blender or food processor.  Easy peasy.

If you wanted to make this recipe nut free, you can use sunflower butter instead of cashew butter.  You may have to add a little milk to get the mixture super creamy.

Cashew Quinoa Granola Bars

Cashew Quinoa Granola Bars are the bomb.  These may be the most delicious bars I have made in awhile.  You definitely need to give these healthy granola bars a try!

 

Cashew Quinoa Granola Bars

 

A few notes about these healthy snack bars.  They are:

  • vegan
  • gluten free
  • grain free
  • no bake
  • chewy
  • refined sugar free
  • dairy free
  • oil free

They freeze well, so feel free to double the batch!  I used quinoa flakes in my granola bar recipe, but you can definitely use quick oats as well.  I like using quinoa because it is a complete protein and naturally gluten free.

Chocolate Almond Butter Ice Cream

It’s perfect weather for ice cream here in Dallas.  So I am busy making new flavors like this Chocolate Almond Butter Ice Cream.  Or rather, “nice cream.”  I call it nice cream because it’s made with frozen bananas.  That makes it very healthy too!

Now, don’t get scared off by the phrase, healthy ice cream. I promise it’s really delicious!  My 6 year old actually begs for this almost every afternoon in the summer. The best part about this?  You don’t even need an ice cream maker to make this! Yay!

I didn’t blend mine super well because I liked the bananas kind of chunky, but you are more than welcome to blend until smooth.  You can also make this with sunflower butter instead of almond butter for a nut free option.

When I go to the store, I always buy two bunches of bananas so I can put one bunch in the freezer.  That way I always have bananas on hand to make this.
