Everything but the Bagel Popcorn

You know those days where there is just enough of a chill in the air that it is socially acceptable to stay in your pajamas and binge watch Grey's Anatomy with your cat.... this is the perfect snack for that kind of day!

There is something about the Everything but the Bagel seasoning from Trader Joe's that is just pure perfection! This combo of spices is perfect for any savory snack. I put it on everything from hard boiled eggs, smashed potatoes and now even popcorn. The question really is... what cant I put this seasoning on!?

I am always looking for simple snacks to whip together... this Everything but the Bagel Popcorn is sure to be a crowd pleaser. This popcorn would be perfect for a fun movie night, game day or after school snack! It's quick, easy and healthy (as long as you don't eat 5 bowls of it!) Make a big batch in 5 min and let the fun begin!

Everything but the Bagel Popcorn-

1 Tablespoon Avocado Oil
3/4 Cup of Organic Popcorn Kernels
2 1/2 Tablespoons Ghee
1 Tablespoon (or more) Trader Joe's Everything but the Bagel Seasoning 

Put the avocado oil in a pan and heat on medium/high heat. Add the popcorn kernels and put the lid on. While popcorn is popping melt your ghee over the stove top. Listen for the pop corn to have about 3 seconds between each pop. This is when it is done. You will feel it! Be careful not to let it burn. Pour the popcorn into a large bowl and drizzle the melted ghee over the top. Toss in the everything seasoning!

Pumpkin Spice Peanut Butter Cups

I am the queen of lazy girl recipes and DIY's! I want to know what is in the food that I am eating and I want it to be quick! This recipe is perfect for those of you that want to impress but don't want the stress!

This time of year is so fun with all of the sweet treats and candy but I hate that it is all typically filled with junk. One benefit to DIYing your treats is knowing exactly what you are putting in your body!

This recipe has minimal ingredients which is makes it super simple to make but also much better for you than the packaged treats you would buy at the store. I used Wild Friends Pumpkin Spice Peanut Butter for the filling in these and it is just so delicious. These little bites scream fall! (Inset your basic bitch joke here).

Pumpkin Spice Peanut Butter Cups- 

1 Package Chocolate Chips
1 Tablespoon Vanilla Bean Ghee
Multiple Scoops of Wild Friends Pumpkin Spice PB
Coarse Sea Salt

Heat the chocolate chips and ghee on low until melted. Line a cupcake pan with fun festive liners. Put a spoonful of the melted chocolate in the bottom of the liner. Add a spoonful of PB on top of the chocolate. Lastly, add another spoonful of chocolate on top of the PB. Sprinkle coarse sea salt on top! Put in the freezer until set. Store in the refrigerator. 

I am gifting these PB cups to all of my friends this year. They turn out looking really impressive and they are no work at all! The coarse sea salt is really the cherry on top and cuts the sweet just enough!

Pumpkin Spice Mixed Nuts

I have really been struggling to find healthy festive pumpkin spice treats! Don't get me wrong... I have been indulging in the pumpkin breads, scones, and beer but it's all about balance and I need to tone it down a bit. More to come on the other indulgences though!

Finding healthy pumpkin treats at the market is nearly impossible so I decided to make my own. These Pumpkin Spiced Mixed Nuts are so satisfying you wont even notice that that they are healthy. This snack has no sugar! Which was important to me at the beginning of this month while I was doing Whole30. No fear... these are 100% Whole30 approved.

These also make the cutest gift. I love putting these in a mason jar with a little bow and gifting them to a friend or co-worker. These would make a great addition to a fall themed gift basket with tea and a cute white pumpkin!

Pumpkin Spice Mixed Nuts-

1/4 Cup of your favorite nut mixture (I used almonds, cashews, hazelnuts, and pistachios)
1 tablespoon avocado oil
A few dashes of pumpkin pie spice

Pre-heat oven to 325 degrees. Put nuts in a bowl and toss with avocado oil. Toss again with pumpkin pie spice. Make sure that all of the nuts are coated with spices. Place on a cookie sheet sprayed with coconut oil spray. Bake for 20 minutes flipping 1/2 way through. Place on a cooling rack covered in paper towels. Let cool for 20 minutes. Enjoy!
