This recipe happened by accident. I was trying to make a caramel almond butter, but the whole mixture seized in the blender. So I decided to change it up and make these no bake cookies instead. I think they came out great.
If you love dates stuffed with almond butter, then this recipe is right up your alley. It’s vegan, gluten free, grain free AND paleo. I used salted almond butter in my recipe. If you use unsalted, you may want to add some sea salt to the recipe. I love the sweet and salty combo.
Calling all ice cream fans! This Salted Caramel Cashew Ice Cream is a must make. I think it is my new favorite. Before making this recipe, my favorite was the cherry chocolate chip ice cream. The best part about this ice cream is that is has zero added sugar.
That’s right. You heard me correct. This healthier ice cream recipe is sweetened only with dates! The dates make up the caramel portion of this recipe.
You guys these coconut caramel tartlets are so good! And super easy to make too! If you have tried my Salted Caramel Chocolate Cups, then you know how yummy a caramel made with dates is. These little tartlets are perfectly proportioned too. Just a little bite of sweetness.
This tartlet recipe also makes a very small batch so you don’t have to worry about having too many sweets in your house at once. Very easy recipe as well.
Who doesn’t like a Nutri-Grain bar? I made you Homemade Nutri-Grain Bars! I used to eat them like crazy until I liked at all the ingredients in them. If you read it as well, you probably know that they are laden with way too many chemicals and artificial dyes.
So naturally I had to create my own homemade nutri-grain bars. My homemade nutrigrain bars tastes so much better and it’s made from wholesome ingredients.
Sadly, it took me two tries.
I did some tweaking the second time around and they still didn’t look that pretty, but I thought, what the heck, I will post them! The second time I learned from my mistakes so hopefully, these will be easy for you to make.
I filled them with pureed dates and also with a fruit spread. I personally liked the dates better as a filling, but use what ever you like. I know many people have said they filled them with homemade Nutella. I bet that is amazing too! I’m not sure I trust myself with something like that haha.
Take one piece and roll it out onto the parchment, putting some plastic wrap between the rolling pin and dough.
Roll it until it is about 1/4-1/2 inch thick.
Spread jam onto the top.
Roll the second ball of dough the same way onto another piece of parchment. Place that onto the dough with the jam. I made sure all the sides were sealed up. Then slice into squares with a pizza cutter. Bake for about 13 minutes. These should last a week or two. You can freeze them as well. Remember to save your parchment paper. You can re-use the same piece over and over again. Enjoy!
Throw everything in the food processor and mix until a dough forms. If it seems a bit dry, you can add more water.
Roll into balls and chill in the fridge for an hour to set.
This also would work with leftover almond meal as well. I would like to note that these are mildly sweet, so if you like an extra sweet flavor you probably want to add a few tablespoons of liquid sweetener. I liked them just the way they were.
I have been having a love affair lately with all things coconut. It is just so yummy! So, I am sharing another delicious coconut creation that was inspired by my Coconut Strawberry Muffins. These are my Coconut Date Bars!
For these I used chickpea flour again. After I made my Strawberry Coconut Muffins, I thought the dense texture that the chickpea flour produces was much more suited for a brownie/bar type recipe. So here goes.
