This delightful pastry can be eaten at the end of a meal or even as a breakfast food.
Cinnamon Baked Apples and Pears
Apples and pears are high in fiber and are packed with flavor. Baking them with cinnamon and coconut sugar on top creates the perfect treat. Pair this dish with vegan vanilla ice cream and you are set!
Pecans are a delicious fall food, and since they are sweet, they make the perfect dessert ingredient. Traditional pecan pies are famous for fall but can be overloaded with sugar.
