Since I am doing my #acaitreat shares on Instagram, I decided to do an Acai Dessert that you can have whenever you want. Why? Well who doesn’t love eating GUILT FREE desserts? I sure do!
I created a recipe that is refined sugar-free, gluten-free, oil-free, and still jam packed with flavor! It tastes as if it should only be enjoyed on occasion, but heck, have this whenever you want! I had this for breakfast and it was awesome. No guilt, no regrets, and no sluggish feelings. I felt energized, light, and wanted to go back for seconds!
Baked apples are usually filled with butter and brown sugar, but honestly, that is not necessary at all. The apples become so sweet and juicy on their own, and depending on what type of apple you use, it can be make sweeter or more tart. I sprinkled mine with cinnamon, and when removing it from the oven, I had to restrain myself from devouring them before I had even made the other ingredients. It smelled like apple pie!
The jam was so easy to make as well. Depending on how much time you have, I suggest letting it sit over night so that you get the best “jam-like” consistency from it. The color threw me off a bit, but the flavor made up for that. It is a unique flavor that is not usually included in jams, plus it has all of the added benefits of acai!
Last but not least is the granola. I shared this recipe a few days ago, so you can read about it + all of the benefits of acai and quinoa on that post as well. So without further or do, I present to you your new favorite sweet treat!

This was definitely a recipe that I am going to remake all the time! My whole family loved it, and we all ended up adding additional toppings of our own to customize them to our liking. Mine included shredded coconut and bananas, as pictured! Some ideas that my family included are: cinnamon, mulberries, strawberries, blueberries, coconut cream, nut butter and pineapple! If you make this recipe, I’d love to hear your feedback, as well as what toppings you added to make it your own. Enjoy!
