Yes ... you read that correctly! Life is short, sometimes, you do NEED dessert. A little sugar here and there is not going to kill you, it’s just not, but we always recommend eating dessert made from the highest quality ingredients, so that you’re completely satisfied and not putting chemical junk into your body. This lava cake recipe is adapted slightly from TexanErin. That said, these aren’t actually that high in sugar - just 1/4 a cup - and we use coconut sugar. Coconut sugar is quite low on the glycemic index and it contains inulin. Inulin has properties similar to probiotics, and helps with gut health which can boost to the immune system. These are also grain free for you grain- free eaters. And, believe it or not, they are a lot easier to make than you would think. Just be very careful not to over bake.
These molasses cookies were inspired by a vegan blog that many of our members rave about, Oh She Glows – but taken to the next level. Blackstrap Molasses is the highest quality and most nutritious kind of molasses- it has a high iron content, and is high in copper, calcium, and magnesium. Spelt flour is used in place of white flour – spelt is an ancient grain higher in protein and fiber than its counterparts, and is also richer in vitamins and minerals, and is typically easily digestible. Flax, cinnamon, and ginger add extra nutrients to these otherwise naughty tasting cookies.
These Grab N Go Granola bars are beyond simple to make and kick the booty out of any store bought granola bar out there. Feel free to get creative with any goodies you want to add into these bars. You can wrap and store them individually in the fridge for up to a week, or a few months in the freezer. This recipe was inspired by Cookie and Kate with a few VFit Squad additions.
This recipe came from one of our favorite members who is very gluten sensitive. One afternoon, she was craving cookies and didn't have her normal go-to grain free flours around her pantry so she whipped up this batter which uses rolled oats and some coconut flour. These cookies are a tasty and nutritious treat and will please kids and adults alike. Just a warning, you probably want to double the batch!

This rich tasting snack is sure to satisfy the sweet tooth within, and staying in true VFit Squad fashion, there are some nutrient dense ingredients added in, making this a treat you can feel good about eating.
