Lately I have been on a mission. A mission to gain complete happiness. Don’t get me wrong, I am not an unhappy person. I have a very fulfilling life. But there are is definitely room for growth. Especially in the confidence area.

For some reason I have been hyper aware of confidence issues lately. Not just with myself but with nearly everyone around me. We are all constantly judging ourselves.  I don’t like it and it is such a challenge to eliminate it from our lives. But that is my mission. To stop the self judgment and to find complete happiness with myself.

It is amazing how much this blog and blogging community has helped with that. I love coming here and expressing myself in a way that I feel confident. I also love so much connecting with all of you.

Heres to continued growth in finding complete confidence and happiness. I hope that you all will find it too, if you don’t already have it. And here’s to the most delicious caramel sauce I have ever eaten.

Stay tuned for tomorrow where this sauce is used to make vegan and gluten free Salted Caramel Brownies!

  1. Hey! I’m commenting from a personal perspective (I’m the girl behind ESP ~ Essential Safe Products haha!) I commented on your FB status saying this looked so good I even want to eat it for breakfast. Then, I clicked on the link to read your post and knew I had to comment. I completely agree with you when it comes to overcoming and reaching a positive level of confidence. I’m so happy to hear that your blog helps you! It really is about who you surround yourself. I’m always striving to become more positive, confident and happy in life. Like you, I also am not “unhappy” but always room for brining more happiness in our lives! So happy I read this post because it really hit a soft spot for me. Can’t wait to see the recipes tomorrow!

    • Thanks so much for your comment Hannah. It surprises me how common this is. I truly think our society has become very judgmental of each other and therefore we can’t help but judge ourselves. I didn’t realize how much I truly judged myself until recently. I’m getting a lot better.

      P.S.~ Eat it for breakfast!

  2. I love caramel, and I will definitely have to bookmark this later so that I can try. But does it taste similar to caramel?

    • Hi Joshua,

      It tastes SO MUCH like caramel! It is surprising. I have had tons of people try it without telling them what is in it and they never know. They just eat gobs of it and say how good it is, no questions asked. Let me know if you do try it and how you like it!

  3. Oh, this looks so good – – I’m imagining it drizzled on all kinds of things! A very good fall food indeed. Visiting via VeganMofo – nice to meet you and your site, Bettie!

  4. You should totally have gads of confidence! You’re amazing!

    and ermahgod this caramel sauce!

  5. I LOVE the idea of the cinnamon in there!

    • It is amazing Anita! But I am also kind of obsessed with cinnamon. Anything I can find to sneak it in is okay by me!

  6. I cannot wait to try this, BB! What a great idea for a base 🙂 And beautiful musings on self-love and acceptance. Sending you tons of vegan caramel your way to bring you gobs of nurturing to your soul. Much love my friend! xo

    • The post I did for your blog was my inspiration for this and the next post. Without your blog, it just wouldn’t be possible. I really have you to thank 🙂

  7. Wow, this looks delicious. I can’t wait to try making this — I’m sure my kids would love to dip apple slices in it (or, knowing them, their fingers).

  8. Caramel Sauce made with Almond Butter- I think I am in love!!! This is such a neat take on Caramel 🙂

    We (girls more so) are so much more critical and har don ourselves and others – I too work so hard not to be so critical on myself and others…I love how open and supportive the bloggin community has been!

  9. Wow, that looks so amazing. I can’t wait to come back to read about the brownies tomorrow.

  12. Just made this and it is delicious. How long will this keep in the refrigerator?

  13. Can another nut butter replace almond butter?

  14. Also, does the coconut oil need to be melted?

  15. Can these be frozen?
