Blondie Fig Fudge Squares

Blondie Fig Fudge Squares

I’m going to start out by saying, these are amazing. Blondie Fig Fudge Squares may very well become your new go-to recipe when you’re craving something sweet, yet don’t want to fuss with baking something- these require absolutely no cooking if you choose! These blondies can be made two ways, no-bake or baked, both options are equally delicious and should leave you feeling amazing. They’re sweetened naturally with whole food ingredients like the obvious being figs and the less obvious being cashew butter and chickpeas. I hope you give these a try this Halloween for a healthier spin on candy and treats, and of course can be enjoyed year round.

Curry Pea-Guacamole

Curry Pea-Guacamole | Nutrition Stripped

Today I’m going to show you how to make a classic dip into a healthier alternative- have an open mind with me on this one, because it’s unique and so delicious! Curry Pea Guacamole is my new favorite guacamole recipe, I was inspired by warming spices like cinnamon, ginger, and curry blend spices, that I often gravitate towards this time of year when it gets chilly. The combination of warmth from the spices and the natural sweetness from the green peas are a phenomenal balance, yet the texture is probably my favorite- smooth, rich, yet light at the same time. Green peas have an amazing ability to transform something like guacamole into a starchy version of itself as well as boosting the fiber and protein content slightly, which is great when you’re looking to add volume or revisit the dip bowl time and time again without over-indulging.

Apple Cinnamon Sweet Bread

Apple Cinnamon Sweet Bread | Nutrition Stripped, apple, gluten free bread, raw caramel

This is the Apple Cinnamon Sweet Bread I’ve been talking about for like a week now, and if you’ve been keeping up to date with me on my daily life through Instagram you’d know I can’t get enough of this bread! It screams fall with warming spices like ground cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, of course in season apples. Not just any type of apple, but the ones that you pick off the tree because they’re perfectly ripe and ready to be eaten, type of apples. I love using fruit as a natural sweetener just as I’m using apples in this bread recipe for a natural sweetener but also to provide the bread with volume, moisture, and a one of a kind flavor.
