Apricot Newtons



  • 147 g Almond Flour
  • 19.2 g Apricot Kernels, ground
  • 18 g (2 Tbsp) Coconut Flour
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1 1/2 tsp Cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup Homemade Applesauce


  • 10 oz Dried Apricots
  • 1 Lemon, peeled
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1/2 tsp Cinnamon


In a VitaMix, grind about 20g  apricot kernels into a fine powder. Add about 150g almonds or almond flour, 18g coconut flour, 1/2 tsp salt, and 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon. Transfer to a large bowl and set aside. Blend fresh apples into applesauce and measure out 4 oz of applesauce into the mixture. Stir until fully combined and no lumps remain. Divide in half and press into 6 silicon molds. Then, in a food processor, combine 10 oz dried apricots, 1 peeled lemon, 1/2 tsp salt, and 1/2 tsp cinnamon. Process until smooth and divide into the 6 molds. Top with remaining crust mixture. Bake at 350F for 30 minutes. Store in the freezer until ready to eat. They are great straight out of the freezer as they don’t freeze solid.

Protein Gingersnaps



Measure 90 g Vitafiber syrup and heat in a sauce pan until it starts bubbling. Measure out remaining ingredients in a separate bowl while the Vitafiber syrup warms. Soft with a fork to make sure all the dry ingredients are mixed well. Once syrup starts bubbling, remove from heat and mix in dry ingredients with a fork until well combined. After it is thoroughly mixed, roll into a log and cut into 10 pieces. Press cookies slightly into a patty form. Bake at 350F for 5-8 minutes. Note: the longer you bake, the crunchier the cookie will be. As the cookies cool they will harden. The person that thought of this was a genius. Only 35 calories per cookie!!

1/3C Hazelnut Flour
1 1/2t Baking Powder
1/4t Cinnamon

In a large bowl, whisk 1/2C whole wheat flour, 1/3C buckwheat flour, 1/3C hazelnut flour, 1 1/2t baking powder, 1/4t cinnamon, and 1/4t salt. Then add 1T liquid sweetener of choice (I used honey bc I’m not that strict), 1T oil of choice ( I used olive), and 1C milk of choice (I used homemade vanilla cashew milk). Stir to combine and pour half the batter on a preheated, greased waffle iron. It takes a little while to cook but it comes out perfectly crispy of the outside and soft on the inside. I just topped mine with Walden Farms Pancake Syrup. Best. Vegan. Waffles. Ever.

Pumpkin S’mores Blondies



1 3/4C Old Fashioned Oats
1t Ground Cinnamon
1/8t Salt
1/2C (8T) Coconut Palm Sugar
1 can Navy Beans
1/2C (4 oz) FF Greek Yogurt
6 Medjool Dates
1 oz (2T) Pumpkin Puree (or any other squash)
1t Vanilla Extract
2T Honey
3/4C Almond Milk
1t Baking Powder
1/4C (4T) Unsweetened Carob Chips
21 Pumpkin Spice Marshmallows


In a VitaMix, grind 1 3/4C old fashioned oats with 1t cinnamon, 8T coconut palm sugar, 1/8t salt, and 1t baking powder. Transfer to a large bowl. In a food processor, blend 1 can navy beans (drained and rinsed), 1/2C FF Greek yogurt, 6 medjool dates, 1 oz (2T) pumpkin puree, 1t vanilla extract, 2T honey, and 1C almond milk until smooth. Add this to the bowl and stir vigorously. This mixture will be very thick so you will need put those muscles to work ๐Ÿ˜‰ (I may adjust measurements/method next time). Line a baking dish with parchment paper and pour in batter. Sprinkle 1/4C (4T) unsweetened carob chips over the top and arrange about 21 pumpkin spice marshmallows on the top. Bake at 390F for about 20 minutes. Allow to cool and firm up. I stored mine in the fridge and microwaved it for a few seconds and they were fantastic.
