Hey, can we just talk for a second about how flippin’ delicious applesauce is?! I mean c’mon! I kid you not, lately I have almost become a wee bit obsessed. It’s possible that I may or may not have a whole kitchen cupboard shelf STOCKED!
How did I accumulate so much fibre filled goodness you ask? Well, the other day I’m strolling through Costco, a favourite thing of mine to do, and I came across a box of organic unsweetened applesauce. I’m not even kidding I actually got a bit excited. And when I say “box” and “Costco” together I think we are all well aware that this isn’t meant as a single serve portion…
But seriously how often do you find yourself wanting something sweet at night? You just need that little something to take the edge off so you don’t go and eat some baker’s chocolate because you ran out of dark chocolate (pffffft, baker’s chocolate, who would actually eat baker’s chocolate out of desperation?!…….me! Hahaha)
OR you could just whip up a batch of these Coconut Almond Blueberry Squares and save the applesauce for those nights when you’re in a real sweet treat jam.
The struggle is real people.
