Healthful Pursuit is weeks away from going ad-free! No more random fast food banners, popups or completely inappropriate messages will invade this space. You will be free to browse, completely uninterrupted and distracted. It’s going to be sa-weet!

The only products that will be promoted here are the ones that I fully endorse and completely stand behind. They’ll be sprinkled in some of my blog posts, like this one. I will give my honest opinion (as I always have) so that you have the details you need to make an educated choice on whether or not the product is right for you. I have always tried to write about things that I think you’ll be interested in, companies that I feel are doing good in the world, and products that I believe are safe for you and your loved ones.

Brands like Happy Days Goat Dairy, one of my long-time promotion partners, will be part of this new chapter of promotion partners on Healthful Pursuit. I have created over 60 recipes for them over the course of our partnership. From Goat Cheese-Stuffed Turkey Balls, to Cranberry Cream Cheese Sugar Cookies and everything in between. The cool part? When I develop recipes for them, I also create a dairy-free version for all y’all that just can’t do the dairy thing.

And with that, let’s get to this month’s roundup of the recipes I made for Happy Days Goat Dairy, ya?

This dessert has all the goodness of apple pie, without all the effort.
Ingredients
Apple:
  • 1 gala apple
  • ¼ cup water
Filling:
  • 2 tablespoons raisins
  • 2 tablespoons chopped pecans
  • 1 teaspoon maple syrup
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • Cream Cheese Drizzle:
  • 2 tablespoons Happy Days Goat Cream Cheese Spread or dairy-free cream cheese
  • 2 teaspoons maple syrup
  • ¼ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ¼ teaspoon water
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350F and fill a small, 2 cup casserole dish with the ¼ cup of water. Set aside.
  2. Core the apple using a melon baller or sharp knife, being sure to leave the bottom of the apple in tact so that it will hold the filling without leaking all over the place!
  3. Mix the filling ingredients together in a small bowl. Using a small spoon, scoop the filling into the apple.
  4. Place the stuffed apple in the prepared casserole dish. Cover with a glass cover.
  5. Bake for about 45-50 minutes, removing the cover after 20 minutes.
  6. Meanwhile, mix cream cheese drizzle ingredients in a small bowl. Once apple is cooked through, and tender, remove from the oven, place on a plate and drizzle with cream cheese mixture.
  7. Serve immediately.
Notes
Cream Cheese - if you can't do dairy, you can replace the cream cheese in this recipe with a dairy-free, store-bought cream cheese or make my Soy-free Vegan Cream Cheese.

Cremini Basil Cream Pasta-0405

Cremini Basil Cream Pasta

Goat cheese is a natural cooking cream that can be used as a sauce in just about anything! In this goat cheese recipe, we’ve added sautéed mushrooms and fresh herbs to a roll of soft Okanagan goat cheese for an ultra-creamy pasta sauce.

Cheese not in your repertoire? No worries. Have you tried my Vegan Cream of Mushroom Soup? It works so, so, so well as a pasta sauce, too!

  1. Oh, Leanne! This is gorgeous, and so very easy and healthful! I’ve been making tons of apple recipe lately, and I love baked apples, but this recipe with its awesome drizzle is masterful! I am totally wishing for this as my breakfast right now, actually (and then again for dessert later … :D ).

  2. So appreciate the dairy free version! Just out of curiosity how would a green apple tase with this? I love granny smiths! Would it give it more a tart?

  3. I love baked apples! I usually use cooking apples though so they cook down really soft :)
    I really need to make a batch of cashew cream cheese….

    • Cooking apples… good call! I was just too lazy to go to the grocery store ;) Yes, you DO need to make a batch of cashew cream cheese. It needs to happen!
