Coconut Butter + Goji Berry Paleo Bark (Dairy Free)

When I was younger, the girls in my family used to go to the Festival of Trees in our hometown. It was a huge event held at the local hockey rink and it is some of my favorite memories.

Gluten Free Mixed Berry + Pistachio Crumble (Refined Sugar Free)

Every time I go grocery shopping in the summer, the fresh berries catch my eye. They basically stare into my soul and beg for me to buy them. Whole Foods has been having a sale on their organic strawberries pretty much every week this year so I'm confident that I have already eaten my weight in berries this summer.
