Cherry Pecan Flax Granola

Gluten-Free

Granola has become one of my favorite go-to baking dishes. I love how you can toss together  oats and your favorite add-ins and have a delicious, yet healthy, snack or breakfast in a matter of minutes. Lately, I have been obsessed with toasted pecans. They are so flavorful and yummy, and add the perfect amount of goodness to this granola. I didn’t want my granola to be too sweet, so I added in {my favorite!} dried tart cherries, which add an extra pop of flavor without being too sweet.

The lemon zest and capers brighten this dip up wonderfully. The flavors all blend together so well, this dip is perfect for a summer BBQ or party!

Gluten Free Blueberry Nectarine Crisp

Gluten Free Blueberry Nectarine Crisp from-thefitnut.com

Summer time and hot temperatures have finally hit the high Rocky Mountains! I love to BBQ in the summers, and I think a fruit crisp is the perfect summer time dessert. You can do this fruit crisp with any fruit really, but I love the combination of berries and stone fruit.

Because this dessert is so fresh, simple, and screams summer, I recommend making it for your 4th of July party!

Warm fruit desserts with vanilla ice cream are hands down my favorite type of dessert. The warm mixed with the cool…so delicious! I found inspiration for this recipe from TwoPeasAndTheirPod. They used peaches in their recipe, but I love nectarines so I switched them out. I also cut way down on sugar, using only brown, and on butter. I think the fruit adds a nice natural sweetness to the crisp, so I did not want to over do it. However, if you like sweeter desserts, by all means add more sugar!
