Recipe: Vegan Lemon Bars featuring Lemon Pistachio granola

I'm not vegan, but I try to eat a mainly plant-based diet and will happily substitute with a dairy-free option when it's available. You won't miss a thing in these creamy lemon bars! With a coconut and cashew base, naturally sweetened with dates and maple syrup, they are a healthier alternative to other overly sweetened treats. The food processor does most of the work here (a Vitamix works great too!), just be sure to plan enough time to soak the cashews and chill the bars before serving.    Michele's Vegan Lemon Bars For the Crust: 2 c Michele’s Lemon Pistachio...

This is my fresh take on the moist, sweet pumpkin bread of my childhood, incorporating my Pumpkin Spice granola and the zucchini still growing in my family’s summer garden.       Pumpkin Spice Zucchini Bread Yield: 2 – 9 x 5”...
