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!
Banana sushi is a great snack to get the kids involved in and get them excited about eating healthy foods. It’s simply ripe bananas, spread with your favorite nut or seed butter, and rolled in crumbled LivBar. Then, the bananas are frozen before being sliced and enjoyed like sushi. This snack is easy and customizable— just grab your LivBar and seed butter of choice for a protein-packed treat!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
We can’t think of a better way to honor National Cuddle Up Day on January 6th than with a warm mug of hot cocoa. Wait, there is one way: We took a spin on the standard hot chocolate recipe using cacao as a base, with additions of maple and vanilla. It’s all inspired by and based off of the Coffee Maple Cacao LivBar! With or without a companion, this maple cacao hot chocolate will hug you into its warm aroma of cacao, maple, and vanilla on National Cuddle Up Day.
The best holiday appetizers utilize those familiar flavors from traditional dishes you know and love. This Loaded Holiday Cranberry Toast will keep on with the tastes that remind you of the holidays in well-balanced bites of cranberry, maple syrup, spices, and Kim & Jake’s Peasant Loaf.
Everyone loves toast, right? It's easy to make and is customizable so everyone can have exactly what they want. This is a simple go-to that is great for hosting brunch or simply switching things up at home for breakfast with the family. Making something as simple as toast is a great way to get kids involved with prepping food and educating them on whole food ingredients.
