My friend Brooke makes these incredible energy/snack bars. They really do rival anything you can buy at a grocer or at the farmer’s market. And besides, the energy bars they sell at our farmer’s market are $4 each. The ones at the health food store range from $2 to $6 – each! Making your own is a smart way to go.
Late night cravings? No problem!

To add flavor to your oats without adding tons of extra calories, like Brittany did you can add your favorite healthy mix-ins like fruit, seeds and even dried berries for a touch of sweetness.
TV host and actress, Jenny Wolf submitted this vegan banana vanilla pudding that tastes so much like a frozen pudding! The rich and creamy coconut almond milk compliments the banana’s unique taste perfectly. Spotted and very ripe bananas work best for this recipe.
Our SuperFan Jaclyn wants us all to step away from the oven. She’s got sweet treats we can make without having to even turn a knob. We love pies, and right around the holidays especially Thanksgiving pie is the perfect dessert. Here’s what you’ll need for this no-bake peanut butter chocolate pie:
