Caramel Apple Dip Recipe

We’re moving into the holiday season, and it’s easy to get caught up in a sugar storm. I mean who doesn’t love a little sweet treat?!

But too much sugar can zap your energy and your mood, leaving you to feel anything but happy.

So I wanted to share with you two recipes that’ll help you to enjoy a sweet treat in the healthiest way possible because I am definitely team sugar over here;).

The first is these blondies. OMG they are soooooo good and so simple to make!

The second is this CARAMEL DIP RECIPE:

  • ½ cup maple syrup
  • ½ cup coconut oil
  • ⅓ cup almond butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • Sea salt to taste

Blend in the food processor for 4 minutes and serve with your favorite apples (we love fuji best!)


It’s totally fine to indulge sometimes, especially when you diy those tasty treats.

Let me know if you give them a try and what ya think!

And then you wind up not…

This was NOT on my vision board…

At the start of this year, moving was not at all on my radar. Yet here I sit in my office surrounded by half packed boxes, getting ready to move to the opposite side of town at the end of the month. This was definitely NOT on my 2020 vision board… But simplifying, a photo of a…

How to Get Out of Overwhelm Into Positive Action

I was chatting with my friend Nicole recently about everything that’s going on in the world—pandemic, back to school, racial injustice, election year—oh my! Seems like the questions, confusion and uncertainty is growing…and at times that feels really overwhelming. It’s so hard to know what to do…to figure things out… So Nicole (a financial therapist) and I…

Enjoy Every Day More

As a pisces, I’m drawn to the water. Remember the movie Splash?  I used to wish I was her. And even though I have a completely irrational yet very intense fear of sharks, the ocean is absolutely where I want to be. So I’m feeling pretty content with life after just getting home from 7…

The Key to Success & Happiness in Life

What’s something you’re not good at? Math is one of mine. Wouldn’t it be awful if I spent all day every day trying to get good at math? I’d probably feel pretty bad about myself. I mean, I do remember how crappy I felt in 7th & 8th grade trying to learn Algebra. And yes,…
