The matcha in this vegan version does add some caffeine to the mix, so it’s a great way to get your morning started! I’ve kept the added sweetness to a minimum. If you’d like it sweeter, just add a little more maple syrup to the mixture.

Vegan No-Bake Pumpkin Pie

Tie-Dye Overnight Oats
I love a hot bowl of oatmeal once the weather turns cold, but until then, I’ll be enjoying overnight oats. It’s a super versatile recipe that can be as hearty or light as you want it. This satisfying breakfast-in-a-jar helps us get out of the door on time in the morning. Plus, it’s a wonderful thing to open your refrigerator in the morning and suddenly remember that breakfast is already taken care of! Once you have the oat and milk (or milk alternative) base, you can top it with nearly anything you like. I love the way the dragonfruit and wild blueberries combine to create a vivid and super cool tie-dye effect to the whole jar. Your kids won’t believe the color is all-natural! Note: Use gluten-free oats to make this GF.
Nutty Chocolate Bark
You might have to kick everyone out of the house when you make this recipe. The aroma of melting chocolate is usually too much for my husband to bear, and I find him circling me in the kitchen, hoping I’ll let him lick a spatula or catch a few dribbles from the pot. This bark is really easy to make, but is quite impressive. Make a double batch for a neighbor or your tough-to-impress mother-in-law.
