Pumpkin spice is seemingly all the rage when it comes to autumn baking. Pumpkin coffee, cake, and other treats seem to pop up everywhere we look just as soon as the leaves begin to change color! But many of these sweet treats and goods are processed or packed with sugar. Packaged, premade cakes and muffins are quick and easy to grab, but we recommend reading those ingredients carefully before diving in. Or rather, try out these simple and delicious gluten free pumpkin spice muffins!
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!
Have you ever made your own homemade fruit sorbet? It’s surprisingly easy and the fresh taste is worth it. Plus, it’s naturally dairy free and gluten free! This Cherry Sorbet and Lemongrass Whipped Cream came together in just over an hour and is as refreshing as can be. In the midst of a truly hot summer, it’s a privilege to enjoy! The cherry sorbet is cool, fresh, tart, and almost tastes straight from the tropics. This is also thanks to a blend of coconut cream, lemongrass paste, and maple syrup for sweetness— It’s all simply whipped into a smooth whipped cream to serve on top.
Crumbly, gooey, sweet, and delicious: Who doesn't love a good crisp? The classic dessert is one of our favorites to whip up in a snap thanks to its crumbly topping made with LivBar! A Raspberry Kale Maca LivBar is easily crumbled and incorporated into the crisp alongside almond flour and oat flour. The slight crunch in each bite is just right on top of a sweet-and-tart rhubarb raspberry filling: And the raspberry flavor comes through strong throughout.
We took a fun and healthy spin on the traditional potluck dessert with this Strawberry Pretzel Salad recipe. Crunchy, creamy, and full of comforting flavors, the classic dessert consists of a pretzel crust, cream cheese center, and jello topping. The dairy and gluten free version riffs off these ingredients with gluten free pretzels, dairy free cream cheese and whipped topping, and a berry-based compote.
If you thought a classic Oreo cookie couldn’t get any better, think again. We looked to the Coffee Maple Cacao LivBar for inspiration and took a spin off of a classic Oreo for this tasty treat. Rather than overly sweet and full of processed ingredients, these Coffee Maple Cacao Oreos taste light and chocolatey with hints of maple, coffee, and coconut.
We’re so excited to celebrate this year’s St. Patrick’s Day with these chocolate Matcha Glazed Donuts! No artificial food coloring is needed here. Rather, matcha powder lends a green tinge and earthy taste to a sweet glaze. Then, we drizzle the mixture atop rich chocolatey baked donuts. It’s no doubt a challenge to wait for those delicious donuts to cool a bit before smothering them with the glaze— But this will ensure that the glaze doesn’t slide right off and the donuts stay firm.
Here at LivBar, we’re big fans of the classic duo of berries and chocolate. And Valentine’s Day is a perfect time to make a special sweet treat like chocolate covered strawberries. Not only is it super quick and easy to make, but you only need a few ingredients. These Chocolate Covered Strawberries with LivBar Crumble are so simple and delicious that you may be tempted to enjoy them on the regular from now on!
This Gluten Free Coconut Lemon Cake is the perfect combination of sweet and tangy flavors, with a moist center and creamy topping. It’s surprisingly simple to make, thanks to the use of your favorite premade dry vanilla cake mix and dairy free whipped cream layered on top. And of course, we had to compliment it all with a crumble of Lemon Ginger Turmeric LivBar on each slice right before serving (thanks superfoods ginger and turmeric!). Light and refreshing, this recipe uses few ingredients and small steps to yield a reliably delicious desert.
