Cinnamon Sugar Bites


By now, if you’ve been reading my blog you know how big my sweet tooth is. I’ve gotten a lot better by controlling my cravings, but sometimes a girl just finds herself getting a vegan donut. Funny thing is, since I’ve been on this clean eating and whole food diet I constantly crave SUGAR. Remember those Lil Debbie’s cakes? For some reason I want

those constantly, and I know for a matter of fact those don’t come in a vegan version. 

One of my favorite snacks to have is Lara Bars. Have you checked out those ingredients? So clean and so pure, it seems like you can easily recreate it. And I have! Well I took inspiration from it and gave it my own lil twist. 




These bites turned out to be the prefect treat! Tasting exactly like a snickerdoodle cookie, you kind of forget that you’re eating something that is actually really good for you. 


One thing that took this recipe to the next level was making my own nut butter. Ever since getting a food processor, I feel like I use it on the daily for everything. It seems like a lot of steps making your own, but give yourself 15 minutes and you got yourself some fresh, homemade nut butter.
