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.
In honor of World Nutella Day on February 5, we decided to spin off of the original favorite with our own dairy and refined sugar free chocolate spread. Nutella has long been a cult favorite because of its unique hazelnut and chocolate taste that goes great with bread or waffles for breakfast. Since the 1960s, fans have been recreating their own versions of the chocolate spread.
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.

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.
These fudgy tahini blondies take into account the chewy bite of a brownie alongside crumbled Coffee Maple Cacao LivBar: we put it right in the batter.

These tahini blondies are easy to prepare, quick to bake at 20 mins or less, and special enough to celebrate the sweet day.
Smoothies are such a tasty, refreshing way to enjoy a quick, filling snack. They’re also an easy vessel for consuming vitamins and nutrients found in spices, herbs, and produce like dark leafy greens. You can toss pretty much any powder or supplement into smoothie blends. This berry kale smoothie supplies needed nutrients in a hearty blend of frozen berries, kale, maca, and more.
This sweet, tangy, crunchy and hearty salad starts with a foundation of wild rice and kale leaves. Add sliced apples, pomegranate seeds, and a drizzle of honey dijon dressing, then finish it off with a crumble of our Ginger Lemon Turmeric LivBar.

When it’s time to ease into the holidays, nothing comforts more than the sweet memory of homemade eggnog.This vegan eggnog recipe takes a twist on tradition, utilizing one of our favorite superfoods to add a warm, earthly flavor and a healthy kick of antioxidants. Adding turmeric balances alongside other spices like nutmeg and cinnamon and brings the drink to that golden-milk-eggnog hue.

You’re probably familiar with the buttery, beautifully shaped and easily customizable treat, often referred to as a shortbread and sugar cookie hybrid. The soft but crumbly cookies with Scandinvaian ties are usually decorated with icing and sprinkles, but are tasty enough to be enjoyed plain as well. Usually made with almond or maybe vanilla extract, we went ahead with both for double the flavor.
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.
