Slow cooker apple butter with no added sugar — just sweet juicy SweeTango apples and spices! Great for using extra apples up. This apple butter is amazing when used in baked goods or just spread on toast. This post is in partnership with SweeTango apples.

Growing up in Minnesota meant that every fall you’d head to the apple orchard.

The orchards weren’t just a place for picking apples; there was also pies (!!!), donuts, hayrides, apple cider, hot chocolate and those caramel apple suckers. If you were lucky enough, you’d also get to pick out a pumpkin or two, then go home and carve it on the table with the family.

Each time we’d get home from the orchard, our bags would be full of pounds and pounds of apples. I don’t know about you, but one can only snack on so many apples. After that, it’s time to BAKE.

Happy weekend, and round up Sunday! I’m writing you from Colorado where we just had our first-ever, in-person Healthy Glow Co. retreat.

I’ll be sure to share more details of our trip soon, but first let’s talk about these incredible paleo dessert recipes that I rounded up for you guys!

Fall-inspired vegan pumpkin oatmeal scones with hints of maple, pecan and pumpkin spice in every bite! Made with hearty Coach’s Oats for a wholesome, filling snack to pair with your cup of coffee.

Many apologies over here because I haven’t made you a scone recipe since 2014. Another apology is due to the fact that we’re already mid-way through September and this just happens to be my first pumpkin recipe of the season. SAYYYY WHAAAA?

Usually I start posting pumpkin recipes in late August or early September, but over the past few years pumpkin craze has been a little insane in the grocery store so I decided to hold off. Sorry, but I do not want pumpkin pringles, pumpkin frosting, pumpkin coffee creamer or pumpkin spice infused hair products.

We’re back with another Round Up Sunday! I hope you guys have had an amazing weekend, and that this roundup is a day-brightener for any “Sunday Scaries.” I’ve found that the best way to cure the scaries are to get a workout in – even if it’s just a nice walk outside – practice some self-care (hello relaxing bath + calming playlist), and of course, make delicious food like these healthy slow cooker recipes.
