@Regranned from @reclaimingyesterday - When you make chewy hemp bars with chocolate drizzle and your taste tester-slash-husband says, "can we sell these?" 😋😋
Makes 12 small bars
For the bars:
1 cup dates
3/4 cup oats
1/2 cup shredded coconut (unsweetened)
1/4 cup @navitasorganics hemp powder
1/4 tsp salt*
2 tbs cashew butter (unsweetened)
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 tbs collagen (optional)
For the chocolate drizzle:
2 tbs coconut oil
2 tbs cocao powder (unsweetened)
1 tsp maple syrup
pinch of salt
🔸Pour hot water over the dates and allow to sit for 2-3 minutes to soften.
🔸Add oats to a food processor and pulse until they are broken down but not too fine.
🔸Drain the water from the dates and add them to the food processor with the oats and the remaining bar ingredients. Pulse until dates form a paste and everything is well combined. (you may need to use your hands to get all of the oats mixed in well.)
🔸Spread the mixture in a small pan lined with parchment paper and flatten to about 1/4 inch thick. 🔸Make the chocolate drizzle by mixing the coconut oil, cocao powder, maple syrup and salt--melting just until it is a thick sauce.
🔸Drizzle the sauce over the bars and refrigerate for at least 10 minutes. Cut into small bars and store them in the refrigerator.
*You may need more or less salt depending on saltiness of your nut butter

It's officially the first day of Fall, but I'm still craving summer because this Banana Split Bundt Cake is on the blog today and it is beyond. Tastes just like the classic frozen treat but without all the melting and cold parts. Recipe link in profile!
Happy 1st day of Autumn!! 🍁🍂🐿 Starting off my favorite season of the year w/ a new recipe for these Sweet Potato Spiced Muffins (GF + Refined Sugar Free!!). Seriously it might be one of my best recipes to date. Totally worth trying this weekend! Recipe link in bio
ALSO - I'm over on @Unsplash today, sharing 'A Foodie's Visual Love Letter to Summer' w/ some of my favorite images from last season! Love to see you there✨
Soooo technically, it’s the last night of summer. So you know what that means? Ice cream dreamin’ ! (....actually, don’t worry, it won’t be the last of the season by far 😉 ... just needed an excuse!) . .
I’ll be waking up to happiness in the am with it being the 1st day of Autumn. Feel free to get excited for a “perfectly fall” recipe coming your way first thing! . .
This honey rose ice cream is on the blog 🍦✨
If I could, I would eat a cheese board for dinner every night. While they might not be as extravagant as this one I created with @earthfare each time, I have crafted some tips to recreate this easily for your next cheese board needs! You can find the link in my profile! Happy cheesing! #darlingEats
One more sleep til Friday!!!!!!!! 😴

We spent a few hours at @groundsforsculpture today learning new sculpture techniques. It always amazes me how a small amount of time creating can refresh and inspire.
As the tone of the season changes, I am craving for earthy and comforting food. Building a rustic bowl with roasted sweet potatoes and brussel sprouts, they get a generous toss in a dressing of balsamic vinegar, lemon juice and anchovy paste. Add an olive oil-fried egg on top to bring some soft running yolk to the mix✨

The apples, and the 30°C temperatures! Something is not right, but who's complaining? I thought that was it for my harvest of tomatoes, but they keep maturing, alongside the apples in the apple tree, also ripe, also ready. If only I could get myself to turn the oven on 🔥🔥🔥#apples#summerforever#harvesting#farmersmarket#autumncanwait
The best part about cool evenings and summer ending is that “all things cozy” is perfectly acceptable : ) . Getting my soup game on again in prep for the 1st day of Autumn, which just so happens to be FRIDAY!! Anyone else excited? .
Seriously, I’m going to celebrate 🙌🏼🍂🍁Making plans... well, thinking of plans. Any ideas??
The recipe for this decadent (gluten-free!) cake is on OHB today! Chocolate cake filled with almond and coconut cream, iced with dark chocolate creme fraiche buttercream and lots and lots of toasted coconut. Pretty much heaven. Also, this cake stand from @beanpole_pottery is my new favorite, isn't it lovely?
Unless of course that candle goes out when lighting the other 🤷🏻♀️😂 it finally cooled down over here in the high desert, and we lit our first fire of the year! I call this season: candle season 🕯🕯🕯-quote by James Keller
