Chickpea Crunch Bars

Just because Halloween is over, doesn’t mean I’ve stopped making healthier Halloween treats. These Chickpea Crunch bars are my new jam. They are super easy to make and the taste reminds me so much of classic ‘Crunch’ candy bars. You only need 5 ingredients to make this recipe and the ingredients I used are gluten free and dairy free. I used Enjoy Life chocolate chips, which are gluten free and dairy free, but you can use any chocolate that you like. My favorite “healthier” chocolate brands are Enjoy Life, Hu Kitchen, and Lilys Chocolate. Lilys chocolate is sweetened with stevia so it doesn’t taste as sweet. I wanted this recipe to taste sweet so I used Enjoy Life because it is sweetened with cane sugar. Hu Kitchen makes really great paleo chocolate.

Sweet Potato Nachos

I just got a mandolin slicer and love it. It slices vegetables super thin, which is ideal for making chips.

I love making Sweet Potato Nachos and my new mandolin slicer was the perfect excuse to make them. This recipe is a great healthy alternative to nachos. These nachos make the perfect Football Sunday snack or party snack.

Blueberry Basil Smoothie

I picked up basil from the grocery store the other week and they only had the basil plant. I decided to pot it in an old, glass peanut butter jar, thinking that it wouldn’t last long in my windowsill. I have tried to grow basil plants multiple times in my windowsill, but every time have been unsuccessful. Maybe because it’s quarantine and I’m home and my basil plant is getting the TLC it needs, but it is thriving in my windowsill! Now, I’m going to have to think about re-potting it in an actual pot..

My new basil plant as well as the warmer weather inspired me to make this Blueberry Basil smoothie. This recipe is gluten free, vegan, paleo, and whole 30. It only requires 4 ingredients to make!
