Vegan Cool Whip
(sugar-free, soy-free, and gluten-free)

1 can coconut milk
sugar, stevia, or powdered sugar to taste
optional: fruit (banana whipped cream, anyone?)
optional: cocoa powder (for chocolate whipped cream!)

Open your coconut milk, and leave the can (or transfer to a bowl) uncovered in the fridge overnight.
It should get very, very thick. (If it doesn’t, you’ve gotten a bad can that won’t work for the recipe.
I highly recommend Thai Kitchen Organic.) Once thick, transfer to a bowl and whip in your sweetener with a fork,
or even beaters, if you want to be really fancy. Stored uncovered in the fridge, the mixture gets even thicker!

Miniature Apple Pies
A yummy apple compote, generously spiced with healthy cinnamon and nutmeg, is stuffed into each of these mini pies made with flaky, gluten-free crust. You can take (almost) guilt-free bites of this classic comfort dessert, which totals 224 calories per pie!

1 batch brown rice flour pie crust
1/2 c. slow cooker cinnamon apples (recipe here)

Begin by preheating your oven to 375 degrees and making your pie crust (or use your favorite pie crust).
Using a floured flat surface, roll the pie crust out to about 1/8 in. thickness. Using a coffee mug with a diameter
of 3.5 in., cut four circles out of the dough and set aside. At this time, you will probably have to re-roll the dough out.
Then, using a smaller coffee mug or bowl with a diameter of 3 in., cut another four circles out of the dough and set aside.
Spray your muffin tin with cooking spray, and gently set the larger dough circles in the bottom of the muffin tins so the
dough comes up the sides of the muffin tins as well. Then, carefully scoop some of the slow cooker cinnamon apples
(about 2 tbsp. per mini pie) on top of the dough. Top your mini pies with the smaller dough circles and use a fork to
pinch the two dough circles together. Bake in a 375 degree oven for 20-24 minutes, or until the edges around the pie
crusts begin to brown. Let pies cool completely before removing from the muffin pan.

Makes four servings

Brown rice flour pie crust

1 cup brown rice flour
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp sea salt
1 large egg, slightly beaten
1/4 cup butter, cut into small pieces
3 tsp cold water

Put flour, baking powder and salt into a bowl. Add cold butter pieces and use a fork or pastry knife to mix them into the dry ingredients. Add the egg and water and stir until sticky.

Use a piece of waxed paper with rice flour on it to roll the dough out on. Then, turn the piece of waxed paper upside down into the pie pan. This dough will not stick together like a gluten dough. You will have to be very careful turning it and depending on how graceful you are, you may need to smooth the dough out into the pan.

Bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes.

Slow Cooker Cinnamon Apples

6 apples
1/3 cup agave nectar
cooking spray
2 tbsp. maple syrup
1 tsp. vanilla
3 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. nutmeg
2 tbsp. Earth Balance

Directions: Using an apple corer/wedger (technical term, anyone?), cut 6 apples into wedges. Then, cut each in half lengthwise. Spray the bottom of a slow cooker with cooking spray and place your apples on the bottom of the slow cooker. Add your agave nectar, maple syrup, vanilla, Earth Balance, and spices and toss to coat. Turn your slow cooker on low and cook for a minimum of 2 hours, but up to a total of 6 hours. Enjoy!

Dark Chocolate Cherry Bark

Chocolate doesn’t have to be rare luxury when you make it with a deliciously dark variety, plenty of heart-healthy nuts, and tart cherries.“The nuts have protein and vitamin E, and they fill you up the right way—no empty calories there!” says food blogger Alyssa Shelasky. “And dark chocolate, well, it’s on the good side of bad.”

Pair these nutty, fruity 95-calorie clusters with a cup of a tea for a satisfying pick-me-up.

3/4 c. almonds (or any nut of your preference like pistachios or macadamias)
12 oz. dark chocolate (60-70% cocoa), divided
1/2 tsp. pure vanilla extract
1/3 c. dried tart cherries (swap for dates or dried apricots)
Sprinkle of coarse sea salt (optional)

Heat oven to 350 degrees. On a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, toast the nuts until they smell nice
and roasted, about 10 minutes. Let them cool completely. Fill a medium saucepan with 1 in. water; bring to a
simmer over medium-low heat. Set a large heat-proof bowl atop saucepan, making sure water doesn’t touch bottom
of bowl. Place the dark chocolate in bowl; cook, stirring, until smooth. Remove bowl from saucepan; stir in
1/2 tsp. pure vanilla extract, toasted nuts, and the dried cherries/fruit. Pour onto baking sheet; spread into an
even layer about 1/4 in. thick; sprinkle lightly with coarse sea salt (optional). Refrigerate until firm, 1 hour.
Break into 24 pieces. Serve in odd, mismatched shapes.

Makes 24 pieces.
