No-Bake Mini Fruit Pizzas

You can use any combination of fruit you’d like with these, and the kids will love them! Use fun colors to make these fruit pizzas extra festive!

Grinch Kabobs

Single-Serving Apple Crisp

Anytime the temp dips below 50 is a good time for apple crisps. These are again made with coconut oil, and are ready in 5 minutes (yes, literally)!

Dark Chocolate Coconut Bites
