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.

I think these cookies are healthy enough for breakfast too.  The quinoa flakes and nut butter add a nice amount of fat and protein, keeping you full for a while.  If you don’t want to use quinoa flakes, you can use quick oats instead.

This recipe is also easy to make nut free by using sunflower butter.  I imagine it should work out just fine.  These healthy cookies literally took 5 minutes to whip together too!

I just had one right before I started this post and they are DELICIOUS! If you don’t have pecans on hand, I believe any other nut should work in their place.  The recipe is very versatile.

Soft Baked Iced Gingerbread Cookies

Disclaimer: This post is sponsored by Pamela’s, but all opinions are my own.  Thank you for supporting the brands that I love.

If you love gingerbread cookies, you have to try these Soft-Baked Iced Gingerbread Cookies!  They are perfect for holidays and very easy to make.  I used Pamela’s grain and gluten-free nut flour blend.

One thing I really love about this nut flour blend is that there are no added ingredients.  Typically, gluten free flours often contain xanthan gum or guar gum.  Pamela’s has neither.  The only ingredients in this flour blend are: almond flour, coconut flour, pecan flour and walnut flour.
