PB & J Granola Bars [Vegan, Gluten-Free & Low Sugar]

Because freeze-dried fruits are being used, the volume needed pf the is much, much less than if using dried fruits. Also, the freeze-drying process does preserve more nutrients than off the shelf dried fruits, and you are not getting that intensified concentrated fructose hit that standard dried fruits have.

Almond Butter Bars [Vegan & Raw]

If you're an almond butter fan - you're going to love these! The ingredients featured here can be bought at health food stores or online. This is an expensive recipe to make given the quantities, so feel free to divide the recipe (my initial tester recipe was 1/8 of this - I made one bar and it worked out fine). I am showing half (8 bars here) and to do this, you can use baking paper to line half of the brownie tin and fold up the edge of the paper in the center of the tin to create a barrier (effectively halving the tin). You can swap in-and-out the dried apricot for whatever else you like, apricots and almonds are a classic pairing so they are simply an example here. These bars are best kept in the fridge, but by all means you can leave them out (as cocoa butter solidifies at a normal room temperature) - they will just be a little soft.

Bean Chilli with Guacamole & Zesty Lime Sour Cream

An awesome vegetarian and vegan bean chilli with a coriander-guacamole and zesty lime sour cream (with a kick of citric acid - available in the supermarket baking section) . Add more chilli if you like the heat, if not - opt to remove the fresh chilli. I used a chipotle chilli powder for this dish, it adds an a sweet-smokey chilli flavour. You can get different chilli powders online, there is a whole world out there: kashmiri, arbol, habanero, ancho, pasilla etc.

Breakfast Fruit Crumble

These Breakfast Fruit Crumbles are awesome. Not only are they low in fat and contain little added sugar but they are all-natural (no nasty preservatives - and probably have way less sugar than store-bought yoghurt and/or breakfast cereals). For one serving you are getting nearly a cup of fruit, a handful of daily grains and a small handful of nuts and seeds.

This fruit crumble is super flexible, you can swap in-and-out ingredients to make it your own (for example I used 10 cooked peaches). Remember, for firmer fruits (pears, apples etc) you may want to par-cook them in water before hand to make them softer, but then again, the texture is entirely up to you!
