Homemade Orange Chocolate Bars

This time of year I think of so many familiar flavors and sweet treats.  Orange chocolate is one of them.  So I made you some Homemade Orange Chocolate Bars.  They are so delicious.  Subtle hints of orange with creamy, melt in your mouth chocolate.  It was hard to stop eating these Homemade Orange Chocolate Bars!  They are super easy to make too.  Just 4 simple ingredients!

This 4 Ingredient Peppermint Fudge is vegan, gluten free, paleo and raw.  My husband said they would also be great with a little chocolate drizzle over the top.  I bet my 3 ingredient chocolate bar recipe would be perfect for that.  For the candy cane garnish on these, I used these dye free candy canes.  I got mine at Whole Foods, but you can probably find them at most health food stores and I will also provide the Amazon link for you.

Flourless Gingerbread Cookies

So you know I am a huge fan of flourless cookies.  These Flourless Gingerbread Cookies are my latest creation.  These Flourless Gingerbread Cookies came out really well.  Crispy on the outside and soft in the middle.  My husband liked them so much, he didn’t want to share any!  These flourless cookies are super easy to make and you only need 5 simple ingredients!

I used cashew butter in my recipe for it’s mild flavor and buttery texture.  I think macadamia butter would work well too.  You can probably use peanut butter or almond butter as well, but the taste may be a little different.  Sunflower butter is an option for those with nut allergies.  These gingerbread cookies would be great for cookies swaps.  Don’t tell anyone they are made healthier.  I promise they will never know!  This makes a small batch of cookies so you will not be stuck with a huge batch in the house.  Please let these cookies cool completely before removing from the baking sheet.  Otherwise they could crumble. Enjoy!
