In honor of Canada Day, just thought to recap some of the Canadian-ness that's been happening on the blog lately (and EVER) :) ...Starting with a few of my latest favorites -- classics remade wholesome (click on recipe name or photo to take you to the recipes):
Canadian Maple Pie
Probably my ultimate favorite Canadian treat is a good ol' classic maple pie -- custardy, mapley, sweet, and super simple to throw together.
Strawberry Rhubarb & Lime Pie
It wouldn't be a Canadian summer celebration without a traditional strawberry rhubarb dessert... Add some lime to the mix and you're in for a treat!
Of course you couldn't have a Canadian desserts selection without the obligatory butter tart!
Maple Butter Chocolates
Of course as the stereotype goes, Canada and maple anything are in a very symbiotic relationship... These maple butter chocolates are a quick and easy treat to whip up for any maple lover.
I'll admit this one's crossing the whole "wholesome" line since the recipe uses a butter alternative... but what Canadian desserts list would exclude a blueberry pie?! And a rather delicious one at that. Plus it's still gf, refined sugar-free, and all, so I'm closing my eyes on that butter and throwing it in!
Raspberry Rhubarb Bundt Cake with Raspberry Frosting
Because raspberries and rhubarb are so in abundance here in summer...
... And a few obligatory RED AND WHITE desserts :)
Jello Dessert Recipe
Don't worry, it's gelatine-free ;) and refined sugar-free while we're at it...
Raspberry and White Chocolate Bark
Raw cashew & white chocolate bark, topped with red raspberries and white sliced almonds -- super simple, but so good!
Fresh Cranberry Cake
Last but not least, this red and white themed tea cake makes a beautiful comforting and easy-to-make large batch dessert for gatherings or simple lazy holiday breakfasts (because cake for breakfast is a must once in a while).
And an honorable mention with not so great photography is this oldie Roasted Balsamic Strawberries Recipe to round off the deal!
HAPPY CANADA DAY for those celebrating & greetings from Canada to everyone else!
They all look absolutely delicious! I couldn't just pick one, I want to make them all! :D Happy Canada day :)
Thanks so much, Nadia :)
