Cranberry Orange Bars (Grain Free, Dairy Free & Paleo)

 Cranberry Orange Bars (Grain Free, Dairy Free & Paleo)

 Whether you are looking for a morning breakfast bar for on-the-go or a tasty dessert, I’ve got you covered!

I’m a big fan of coconut flour and I realize that a lot of my grain-free recipes lately utilize both almond and coconut flour. Well I don’t want those of you with an almond allergy to miss out on some scrumptious grain-free treats! These bars are perfectly moist, filling and nutritious. They are great for breakfast,  a snack or packed into a lunch box. These bars are hearty and abundant in protein to keep you satisfied and fulfill any sugar or grain cravings you may have.

The combination of orange and cranberry will make your entire kitchen smell wonderful. Double win right?! Hope you get a chance to try these bars and put them in a lunch box or two sometime soon!

Raw Lemon “Cream” Bars (Dairy-Free, Sugar-Free, & Vegan)

Any lemon fans out there?!

I’m crazy about all citrus fruits, especially this time of year as the temperature begins to rise and the sunshine abounds.

These lemon bars are decadent, yet made from only a few basic ingredients. This is my kind of bar–refreshing, delicious and so easy to make! Lemons are a fabulous source of Vitamin C and very cleansing. Cashews are rich in iron, magnesium and protein. (The bars appear white because I haven’t added the yellow dye put in commercial lemon bars!)

Add to Vitamix or Blender:

4 cups cashews

1 cup lemon juice (freshly squeezed, if possible) (or 15 drops Lemon essential oil)

1 cup water

1/2 cup coconut oil

1/2 cup coconut nectar

1/4 tsp. lemon drop stevia (optional, but is a fabulous addition!)

Place all ingredients into the Vitamix and blend on high for 2 minutes. You may need to use a spatula once to scrap down the sides and re blend for a few more seconds. Use a spatula to scoop the mixture into a pie pan. Freeze for at least 2 hours. Use a large knife to cut into individual bars. Serve!

Makes 8 servings.
