Banana Almond Loaf

I had a few ripe bananas in need of being used up so I decided to make a banana loaf with the ingredients I had on hand.

It is a very moist loaf and the bananas and apple juice add a natural sweetness. You can spread almond butter on a warm slice and it makes for a decadent, but healthy treat.

Chocolate Almond Breakfast Bars

This energy-packed recipe is so easy to make, and requires no baking! Whether you decide to wrap the bars in individual wrappings or just keep them in the fridge for a post-workout boost, these are a delicious way to keep you going throughout your day.

I prefer to use a basic organic crispy rice cereal from the bulk section of my local health food store, but any crispy (not "puffed") rice cereal that is dairy-free will do.
