S’mores Bars | A Healthier Version

You know what one of the best parts about summer is?? The food of course! One of my favorite being s’mores….yeah I know not the healthiest! Ever since going vegan it has been quite hard to find vegan marshmallows. They are out there, but only carried in specialty supermarkets and are a bit pricey.

I have seen these everywhere from pinterest and instagram to magazines.  These are an easier and more indulgent way to enjoy the delicious combination of graham cracker, chocolate, and toasted marshmallow. 

So I decided….how exactly would I be able to “healthify” a s’mores bar? Continue reading “S’mores Bars | A Healthier Version”

This was actually a fun recipe for me to make, because it was originally a challenge between my fellow vegan friend, Trisha, and I. We decided to pick three ingredients that were “fall-inspired” and make a dish out of it. The ingredients were:

  • Maple syrup
  • Cranberries
  • Pecans
