These homemade fig bars taste just like the real deal, but better! The only fig bar I'm used to eating are those that come wrapped in plastic and full of a ton of artifical ingredients. These fig bars are made from simple ingredients and the sweetness comes from the fi...

Dates have become my best friend this past year, and now I'm glad I can add them to one of my favorite things: brownies. The "brownie" part of this recipe is very similar to my raw date bars that I make with almonds, date, vanilla and coconut (optional). Since these ar...

I've had my eye on this recipe for the longest time and one day at the grocery story I spotted a spaghetti squash and just went for it. Best decision ever and I will for sure be making this again maybe with shrimp. This dish is super easy and works well as a side or ma...

Just like some of the date ball recipes I have tested out, these energy bites also make a great snack. Instead of being sweetened with dates, they call for honey and you can always pick your add ins for desired sweetness. Pack these for snack or eat after dinner.
