Crunchy, sweet brittle made with nuts and granola are a promising sign that autumn is here and the holidays are near! Candy brittle made with nuts has long been a sweet treat that can be made at home — It’s a common gift for friends and neighbors, but do you know what’s in it? A classic peanut brittle is quite likely to be made with corn syrup, refined sugar, and maybe salted butter or other additions. Rather, we reject these complicated candy recipes and prefer this simple LivBar brittle instead!
When was the last time you enjoyed a banana split? The childhood classic is popular for good reason: A base of fresh fruit, plus refreshing vanilla ice cream and crunchy toppings?! Sign us up! That’s why we whipped up these dairy free banana splits with tasty toppings. Crumbled Blueberry Vanilla Kale LivBar is the perfect element of crunch against soft banana and ice cream. Then, more crunch comes from pecans, and a sweetness factor from honey and maraschino cherries. You can add whatever toppings you want, though!
In honor of Independence Day, we thought these mini trifles were the perfect little dessert! The Fourth of July is a great time to make fun themed treats and enjoy them with friends, family, and kids. And this dish reps the colors of the flag without unnecessary artificial colors or add-ins. White cake, whipped cream, and blue and red berries are all that’s needed to make a color-coded dessert. And bonus: You can use fresh, local berries in the Pacific Northwest since summer is berry season!
Milkshakes are so easy to make! We love the creamy sweetness and ice cold texture on a warm day. And what better way to celebrate National Vanilla Milkshake Day on June 20 than with this vegan version of the sweet treat? With just three ingredients to start, it’s quick to whip up in a blender and enjoy for the holiday. A crumble of the Blueberry Vanilla Kale LivBar on top ties in with the vanilla bean flavor of the ice cream and lends a nice bite to the vanilla milkshake.
For a quick make-ahead breakfast or mid-day snack, overnight oats are an easy contender. Full of protein and fiber, overnight oats should keep you full and satisfied all morning long. This blueberry vanilla version is based off of the Blueberry Vanilla Kale LivBar, which is ideal to crumble on top for some crunch and extra flavor.
As if we needed another reason to enjoy the perfect breakfast, National Pancake Day is just around the corner on February 16! Why not take advantage of the special day by whipping up a batch of fluffy, golden pancakes stuffed with fresh blueberries and a crunchy topping? We took the standard blueberry pancake recipe up one notch by crumbling a Blueberry Vanilla Kale LivBar right on top. Plus, this recipe uses a pre-made dry pancake mix, making these Gluten Free Blueberry Pancakes with LivBar Topping super easy and quick to cook any morning of the week.
At LivBar we do believe a good sweet treat for breakfast occasionally is not a bad idea - after all, life IS all about balance. That is why we wanted to recreate a classic with wholesome ingredients that trump any store bought versions - blueberry muffins.
"Because you don't live near a bakery doesn't mean you have to go without cheesecake" -Hedy Lamarr
There are so many different twists on cheesecake these days. Whether it's different flavors or styles, cheesecake has easily been one of the biggest dessert staples all around. The saddest part about this glorious dessert is that there are many people who aren't able to consume cheesecake because of lactose intolerance or simply don't react well to dairy products.
Whether you have a child with a nut allergy or simply struggling to figure out what to pack for lunches, we are so grateful for companies like SunButter who have created a nut-free butter that is processed in a nut-free facility, making it a safe alternative while still being able to enjoy everything nut butter has to offer.
