Homemade Snickers Bites (Vegan)

Homemade Snickers Bites.  Before I started eating healthy, Snickers bars were one of my weaknesses.  Once I became vegan, I could no longer eat them.

So I created these homemade vegan snickers bites to help fill the void.  This recipe is super easy and only contains 5 ingredients and very little added sugar.

If you like my German Chocolate Bites, you will love these homemade vegan snickers bites as well.  I could also see these going really well as an ice cream topping.  Yum!!

Guest Post: Almond Butter Chocolate Thumbprint Cookies

Hello everyone, my name is Miryam and I am the dietitian behind the food blog Eat Good 4 Life. I’m so thrilled that Melissa has asked me to do a guest post for her. We have been blogging buddies for quite sometime but never meet until last week. We were able to participate on a blogging trip together in Napa Valley, CA where we were able to drink plenty of wine, eat and chat about food. It was a great experience to say the least. Awesome company.


Have you made thumbprint cookies before? I have actually made some in the past but without any success. My thumbprint cookies have turned super dry and crumbly both times I attempted to make them.  I wanted to keep these almond butter cookies no bake.  I wanted to make sure they would turn out okay, and not baking them was definitely the way to go.

Vegan Chocolate Lovers Brownies

These Chocolate Lovers Brownies are amazing!  I am not a huge chocolate person and I couldn’t stop eating them.  These healthier brownies are vegan, gluten free, paleo and no bake.  There is even a nut free option with these chocolate lovers brownies.

I whipped these up in no time at all.  They are so rich.  Almost like fudge.  A little bite will satisfy you.  If you love brownies, you may also like my super moist flourless brownies or my no bake peppermint brownies.

I let my brownies chill overnight in the fridge.  They set up great.  I bet you could speed up the process by putting them in the freezer for 30 minutes to an hour.

I used macadamia nuts in this, but any nut will do.  I bet sunflower seeds would work well too.

Hazelnut Coffee Energy Bites

Hazelnut Coffee Energy Bites.  I love hazelnuts.  I love coffee.  So I decided to put them together to make these Hazelnut Energy Bites.

You guys! These are super delicious and very easy to make.  I got some coffee extract the other day and I made some Coffee Chocolate Oatmeal Bites.

Those were delicious, but I knew I wanted to make some sort of no bake treat with it as well.  That is how these Hazelnut Coffee Energy Bites came about.

We are still prepping for our upcoming kitchen renovation and trying to use up what we have in the pantry.  I just happened to have a bag of hazelnuts that needed to be used.
