reese’s peanut butter cups used to be my absolute favorite candy. the PB middle was always the best part, & i’d eat all the chocolate off the outside first to save the best for last. this new nut butter cup recipe is my new reese’s!! with 2 mixtures to layer into the nut butter cup, the chocolate mixture + the nut butter mixture, you get the reese’s vibe immediately!! the sunbutter [of sunflower seeds] is the closest in texture & flavor to peanut butter, in my opinion, and it is a little salty, so it was my choice of substituting for these nut butter cups… time to build it up, butter cup
it almost feels like i don’t need to post how i make guac, because i feel like guac is kind of a thing that most people [probably?] know how to make! BUT… for those who don’t, HERE YA GO!!! my guac is fresh n tasty, like most guacs [lol]. simple & light, too!! and no additives, just natural ingredients! Continue reading
ohhhhh my goodness. the lemon blueberry combination. i almost have NO words for the heaven that it is… but i’ll try and give you an idea of how legit incredible this bread is. i first thought of this idea becuase i wanted to make something that has a more vibrant flavor than the typical breads — banana, zucchini, pumpkin. those are all delish in a warm + comforting way, and i wanted this new bread to be brighter & lighter. i seriously chose this flavor combination as my effort to WILL spring into action. enter: LEMON.

since i’ve found this new yogurt that i am obsessed with [it’s dairy free – cashew milk based – no added sugars, & packed with probiotics. what more could you ask for when you just really miss parfaits but still want to eat real food with clean ingredients] … GRANOLA!!! except that one major thing with granola is that usually the base is oats which are a grain; which is not something involved in eating paleo. UNTIL now. my new coconut maple almond granola is GRAIN FREE + you might not even guess it! it’s crunchy, nutty, clustery, & slightly sweet. you see it, you like it, you want it? YOU GOT IT.
OKAY. it’s here!! this will be the first bread recipe that i’ve tested & successfully created for my blog! i’ve been wanting to make something like a banana bread, but without the bananas; which would make it just bread. but i didn’t want to make just bread! [shouts to @aeengels12 for the inspiration for a sweet potato based bread – this one’s for yaaa.] i wanted the flavor to be neutral in terms of not having fruit or cinnamon or any nut butter, & the reason for that was because i wanted to be able to put whatever toppings on it without clashing or overpowering any flavs!
one of the main reasons i wanted it to be neutral was becuase i recently discovered a new type of jam [just fruit preserves, no sugar] & immediately knew i needed a base for a THROWBACK CONCEPT. i used to eat this legitimately every single day for lunch in high school….can you guess? PEANUT BUTTER & JELLY, ANYONE? except that peanut butter isn’t paleo & jelly is sugar-filled, SO… now that i’ve discovered that all other nut butters are heavenly in their own regard and this new raspberry fruit spread from [@TRADERJOES], i’m determined to bring back PB&J.
i tested it with my family + a few others [@chelsboyle, @jozlow], & after batch 2 — which turned out to be just what i was hoping to create — it’s ready for you!
you know how sometimes you want dessert but you told yourself you weren’t going to have dessert that night? or if you want a snack that’s sweeter than an average snack but not so sweet that it’s dessert? ORRRRR if you just want a frozen dessert that’s, well, dessert? I GOT YOU >>
