Newly-found recipes

I am always hunting for new recipes. There are so many amazing blogs out there dedicated to cooking healthy, nourishing foods, that are good for sensitive stomachs like mine. I know that a lot of people don't have the time to check into these blogs regularly, and since I enjoy it, I thought I'd share a few of my newly-found sweet recipes that I loved! (Favorite dinner recipes post to come!)

(All these pictures I am about to post are the rights of the original blogger- none of these pictures are  my own. All credit goes to the wonderful cooks and bakers out there creating these recipes.)

Homemade Lunabars

I saved some imported rice crispies from this summer specially for this recipe, and my my, was it worth it! Just as satisfying as a rice crispy treat, without all the processed ingredients from the marshmallows. I used homemade almond butter, and agave, and they turned out great.

Pumpkin Breakfast Smoothie

Pumpkin Spiced Almond Butter

Umm...this was pretty much amazingly delicious. I brought it to school every day for a week with sliced carrots (it was surprisingly a good combo!). It made my day. I mixed this in my VitaMix.

Almond Flour Brownies

I have made almond butter brownies in the past, with agave as the sweetener. But for company last week, I wanted to make some that tasted a bit more like "real" brownies. So I used this recipe that is semi-healthy (almond flour), but also slightly more "normal" (sugar!!). Mom said that these were some of the best brownies I'd ever made. Whoop whoop!

Mocha Buttercream Frosting

I made a miniature cake for my Dad's birthday, and topped it with this frosting. I added a tiny splash of cold coffee for smoothness. I think this recipe is a keeper!

There you go! I hope you feel inspired to go bake now... like I do! Mmm...
