No Bake Super Food Granola Bars

This healthy recipe is no bake, vegan, gluten free and refined sugar free!  Plus it’s also filled with healthy protein and fats from nuts, seeds and flax.  I used chopped dates in mine, but you could also use cranberries or raisins if you prefer.

If you wanted a nut free version of this, just make them with sunflower butter instead of almond butter.  That’s what makes these bars so great!  You can customize them how you like.

Peach Chia Jam (No Refined Sugar)

Peach Chia Jam.  I made you a chia jam!  Are you seeing the peaches show up at your grocery store?

We are well into summer here in Texas, so I thought I would make some peach chia jam.  It turned out so good.

The best thing about this peach chia jam, is that there is no canning, boiling or pectin involved!  The chia seeds do all the work.  This chia jam is made in the refrigerator.  Super easy!

Another great thing about this jam is that it contains no added sugars.  Peaches are so sweet on their own, so I didn’t feel the need to add anything extra.

However, if you like things a little sweeter, you can probably add a couple teaspoons of maple syrup or raw honey.

This jam needs to be stored in the fridge and it should last a couple weeks.  It’s great on toast, on top of yogurt, or even as a pancake topping!

Strawberry Popsicles (Vegan and Paleo)

Summertime is here and it’s time to bring on more popsicle recipes!  Starting with these Healthy Strawberry Popsicles.  Who doesn’t like popsicles?  My kids love them, but the store bought versions usually include artificial dyes and processed sugar.

You can easily make your own popsicles with just fruit as the ingredient.  I added the chia seeds to my strawberry popsicles because I like to add in a little healthy fat and also fiber.

These homemade popsicles are so simple. They have no added sugars. Vegan and gluten free.  They take less than a minute to throw together.  It takes the popsicles about 6 hours in the freezer until they are ready to eat. They they are there in the freezer for you to enjoy anytime!

I love these popsicle molds! They have a drip catch it’s less likely to make a mess.  I know all you moms can relate! 🙂  If you don’t have popsicle molds, you can probably make this a sorbet in an ice cream maker.

These would really work with any fruit.  I imagine raspberry, blackberry or even kiwi would also be delicious.  So go crazy with all the fruit and eat popsicles all summer long.

Blueberry Chia Jam (Vegan)

Blueberry Chia Jam is super easy to make! I first got the idea of doing a chia seed jam from my friend Miryam over at Did I mention she is also selling an ebook? Check it out if you get the chance.

Her recipes are great! Anyway, she came up with this recipe and I knew I had to make it! I used blueberry instead of raspberry for mine.

Blueberry Chia Jam


On Saturday, we picked up our co-op basket. This week, there was an optional add-on for 12 pints of organic blueberries. So we took it! I already had used some of them to make my Grain Free Blueberry Tart. So with some of the remaining blueberries, I made this jam. Adapted from

This healthy chia jam should last at least a week in the fridge.  You can also freeze it for longer. It makes about 2 cups worth.  It also makes a great filling for my Blueberry Crumb Bars or my homemade Nutri-Grain Bars.

You can really use any fruit you like to make this.  I have also used apples and peaches and both jams turned out great.  The apple spice jam was great for Fall.  You can also put it in overnight oats.  Yum!
