snack to school week: apples + date caramel (vegan, no added sugar)

(Subscribe to my newsletter here so you don’t miss a Snack to School Week – or any – recipe!)   The other week I shared this recipe for date caramel. This week, I’m sharing it again; this time with the quintessential back to school fruit: apples. My personal favorites are granny smiths because their tartness is a perfect complement to the natural sweetness of the date caramel. Organic apples are best since conventional apples rank #4 on the Environmental Working Group’s Dirty Dozen list.

When it comes to fruits and sweeter veggies like carrots, this isn’t so hard. But greens like spinach are another matter. Which is why I’m so excited to share this recipe with you! I’m mildly obsessed with it and cannot believe I hadn’t thought of it before. It’s ridiculously easy, free of nuts, can …

snack to school week: trail mix

(Subscribe to my newsletter here so you don’t miss a Snack to School Week – or any – recipe!) Today my children started back to school; it’s a day I’ve been looking forward to for weeks. Not just because we’re (okay, I’m) ready to get back on a more structured schedule, but because I’ve been dreaming up recipes and planning posts to share for “Snack to School Week” here on Wildberry Press! Yipee! Before we jump into today’s recipe, a little disclaimer…while I hope these recipes will please those little palettes – and your too! – I won’t use the …
