Raw, Vegan Blackberry Cheesecake Bars

September 9, 2013

A few glances around the blogosphere suggest that people are gearing up for autumn. Pumpkin is starting to appear on Instagram, honeycrisp apples are being spoken of with glee, and I can practically smell the cinnamon wafting from certain granolas.

That said, I really enjoy making homemade nut […]
