4 Treats to Ring in Fall!
We always look forward to the flavors of fall. This time of year calls for pumpkin spice (pumpkin in general), apples, cinnamon and caramel to be enjoyed in just about every foodie way. While many of these delicious flavors come in the form of sugary, calorie-heavy options, life is about balance and intuitive eating, we have gathered four treats that capture our favorite fall flavors in a healthier way.
Pumpkin spice makes everything tastier. With protein, fiber and complex carbs, get a healthy dose of nutrients with these energy bites while fulfilling your craving for pumpkin spice! Make a batch and enjoy them for breakfast or snack time all week long.
Caramel apples are always a fall favorite. These Sorghum Caramel Apples use non-traditional ingredients to create a healthier version. Prunes and sorghum syrup combine to create the decadent caramel coating. Popped sorghum, chocolate and pumpkin seed blend together in the topping to give the apple wedges a nice crunch.
These Popped Sorghum Peanut Butter Balls take the nostalgia of popcorn balls and combine it with creativity and health. The bite-sized morsels blend popped sorghum, peanuts, peanut butter, cinnamon and chocolate for a delightfully delicious treat
There’s nothing quite like a freshly baked dessert, and this Apple Cinnamon Raisin Sorghum Bake from Nutrition Starring You is no exception. Made with apples, cinnamon and pearled grain sorghum, think of this dessert as a healthy alternative to cobbler or pie. Plus, with no added sugar, you won’t feel guilty for enjoying something so tasty.
