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, which is totally fine, life is about balance and intuitive eating, we have gathered five 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.
