Apple Pie (A=πr^2)

This apple pie combines health with intense flavor without all the added calories. The crust is simply made from oats, and the filling is a great way to include more apples into your diet with spices like cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, and allspice.

  1. Wildway Banana Nut Grain-Free Granola
Gluten-Free, Non-GMO

#Livewild and top this all off. I love Wildway Banana Nut Grain-Free Granola. This product is great because its packed with great foods you should be eating everyday from organic dates to walnuts, pecans, and flavored with vanilla beans and hint of cinnamon. At a low sodium content and no-oil, the company does a great job at offering a quality product at a great price. you have to pic this up!  The best part is that its super versatile to add anywhere so you’ll be using it more than just in this recipe.

2.  Rob Mills Oat Bran Cereal

Robs Red Mill products are always one of my go-to brands. As soon as I spotted  Rob Mills Oat Bran Cereal I had to try it! Not only has it been a staple breakfast with blueberries and spices, but it is easier on my stomach than quick oats and old fashioned oats. It just seems to digest better and keeps me well satiated with out the indigestion. I also notice that I love the taste more than regular oats! I’ve linked the large package here because I promise this isn’t going to stay long in your pantry.

3.  Date Sugar

I admit it. I am a date sugar addict. Whenever I see cereals, cookies, products adding sweeteners, cane-sugar (almost everywhere), and honey, I cringe. I die little inside. I don’t understand why they don’t use DATE SUGAR?! Maybe because they want to profit by using lower quality, cheaper ingredients? Yes. Date sugar comes at a higher price, but it is the Healthiest sweetener you we have available to us. Its simply dates, ground into a granular sweet powder-and I Run through this stuff. Its so versatile in baking, cooking, sauces, oatmeal, smoothies, wherever you want! I’ve linked the  2 lb bag because your living a successful plant based life, this is on your counter or in your belly!
