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?

- 1 gala apple
- ¼ cup water
- 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
- Preheat oven to 350F and fill a small, 2 cup casserole dish with the ¼ cup of water. Set aside.
- 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!
- Mix the filling ingredients together in a small bowl. Using a small spoon, scoop the filling into the apple.
- Place the stuffed apple in the prepared casserole dish. Cover with a glass cover.
- Bake for about 45-50 minutes, removing the cover after 20 minutes.
- 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.
- Serve immediately.

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.
