A Kinder Thanksgiving

Dark Faerie Creations

This year we’re headed to family for our Thanksgiving feast. My part of the cooking duties is desert, not pies though. My Mother-In-Law is the amazing pie maker of the family!Β  So I’ve been scouring the web seeking out recipes because at the moment I’m not taking the time to whip up my own and give a test run or two. So I thought I’d share some fabulous vegetarian and vegan recipes that I’ve stumbled across in hopes you may be inspired to try something different and make a new tradition of a kinder, gentler holiday! Enjoy browsing the recipes and let me know if you tried one or two and how it turned out!Β 

Here are my picks for my part of the holiday feast baking!


Arbonne Truffles (No Bake)

Mix 3 cups of oats, 2 1/4 cups Arbonne Protein Mix, 2 cups Almond butter, and 1 3/4 cup honey or agave (low glycemic). After mixing ingredients, roll into 1″ balls. Microwave Wilton’s Candy Melts (try 1/3 of a bag) at 30 second intervals. With a fork dip each ball into the chocolate and tap off excess. Sprinkle with topping!
