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...

After I made my almond coconut date bars a few months ago I decided to continue looking for recipes with dates. I was looking for energy bites and came across this one. It is very similar to the other recipe except it has cocoa powder which I find makes it taste better...

When I heard that you could put sweet potatoes in brownies, I lashed for the sweet potatoes laying on my counter and started making them. This recipe not only caught my eye because of the secret ingredient – sweet potato – but the peanut butter swirl that was on top of...
