It’s Time Forrr…a Giveaway!

I almost titled this “what starts with a “g” and rhymes with “iveaway,” but I figured being normal for once and just saying “giveaway” would capture people’s attention more.

I am not unique enough to have thought of this first, Gabriela is. I am unashamedly stealing her idea. (please don’t hate me?)

But, with Valentine’s Day coming up…don’t you want to win a little somethin’ somethin’? Maybe a little somethin’ somethin’ straight from my kitchen?

I will give two readers the opportunity to choose anything (within reason) of my baked goods. See note at the bottom to see what “within reason” means.

I’m sorry, but I will not be sending you pancakes via mail. And I’m not sending you Teddie, either. Not that he’s baked, anyway.

Here are some of my suggestions…

Everything-But-The-Kitchen-Sink granola bars, with your choice of “flavor” – ginger? sure can do! Cinnamon Raisin? Okay! Cranberry-almond? That’s chill, too. We can brainstorm. So long as you don’t request chicken-and-biscuit granola bars.

Cashew Butter. Cinnamon raisin or plain.

Energy Cookies. Recipe is from Vive le Vegan. AKA my favorite “super-power cookie.”

Date Bars – Cranberry orange or original.

Orange-Date Cookies

And I’ll even make something that isn’t a recipe of my own, but a loved recipe…such as…

Eat, Drink and Be Vegan’s Lemon-Poppyseed Cookies. A favorite of mine as well as…well…everyone’s.

or Vive le Vegan’s Sparkled Ginger Cookies. I know I just said the lemon cookies were my favorite, but it’s obvious that everything is “my favorite,” so I’ll say these are my favorite, too.

I’m open to other requests, as I said above I will try to accommodate what the winner really wants. However!! Keep in mind these things need to be mailed! I think some things will “keep” better than others, or travel better than others. I will also try to accommodate special dietary restrictions. Most everything is vegan, but do advise of allergies! Unfortunately the only gluten-free options are nut-butters. I don’t think that counts as “unfortunately,” though, and to be safe lets say “everything will be manufactured on equipment shared with peanuts, dairy , gluten and soy.”

Just covering my bases here, people.

Anyways. How to enter?

  1. Leave a comment saying what you’d like. This won’t necessarily be considered your “final choice,” if you are the winner, don’t worry. Maybe you’ve been eyeballing something I failed to mention?
  2. Tweet about the giveaway using my handle (@HLTHYexposures)
  3. I don’t know…humor me. I can’t think of anything else but I like giving three ways of entering.

As usual, please leave each entry as a separate comment.

Winner will be chosen sometime on Sunday. Which means you won’t be getting them for Valentine’s day anyway, but whatever. It’ll be like a consolation Valentine’s day present. Or something.

Would anyone hate me if I entered my own contest? Because I want to win.

(Oh, yes, and lets keep this open to U.S. residents only. Purely because I don’t think any of these things would a. survive the trip, or b. still be good a week and a half later. Sorryyyy!)

    I don’t know if you do gluten-free, but your nut butters always look amazing! (P.S. do you roast them first? I tried doing soaked, dehydrated raw nuts and it was a major fail.)

  2. Oh my god your food makes me drool…a chance to win some of your goodies (and I mean that in the most non-weird way ever) is AWESOME.

    I’d be torn between the lemon poppyseed cookies (um yes please) and the energy cookies. YUM

    And yes I came out of lurker status to try and win something. Don’t judge


  3. Of course I don’t hate you!! Nothing but looooove. And i’m pretty sure I stole the idea from someone else, anyway.

    I’d want to try some of your nut butter, since I’m too scared to make any by myself!

  4. I would want to win anything htat’s gluten free! Bring on the goodies!

  5. I want to win the cashew butter! Yum!

  6. Cranberry Almond Coconut Balls, please!

  7. Oh my gosh I die! This is amazing!

    It’s not a baked good, but what I’m coveting most is your Coffee-Almond-Walnut butter. Is that a possibility?

  8. I probably wouldn’t say no to any of the granola bars you’ve made since I started reading… πŸ™‚

    You’re such a sweetheart. Have a good weekend!

  9. Heidi

    Those Energy Cookies look so good πŸ™‚

  10. Katie

    I’ve been dying to try your granola bars! They look sooo delicious but I have to admit that I’m pretty impatient when it comes to baking! Maybe after a taste of yours will inspire me to finally make my own?

  11. Oooh I would love some cinnamon raisin cashew butter. YUM! πŸ™‚

  12. So exciting…would love to win some energy cookies…or maybe the cashew butter since I only had one type I wasn’t into…

  13. 14yearoldvegan

    I can’t pick between lemon poppy seed cookies or cashew butter

  14. and since my twitter isn’t necessarily connected to my blog and have work acquaintances read mine (maybe I should get two if I start bloggin again…) can I have my second chance be because I just told my sister visiting me about how delicious your pancakes are every day…and that we should have some in a few mins…

  15. jc

    energy cookies for sure! although i would love to try all :)))

  16. Lemon poppyseed cookies!:)

  17. Ingvild

    You are so sweet! A great giveaway, but I live in Norway.

  18. Alex

    I would love to try the energy cookies!

  19. Alex

    I’d also like to try the everything but the kitchen sink granola bars! Yum!!

  20. I’m torn between the energy cookies and the granola bars!

  21. For my third entry, I posted about the giveaway on my Facebook blog page.

  22. Lauren

    Okay. This time I actually had to buck up and think of specifics! Though they aren’t yours, the lemon-poppyseed cookies look like they’re to die for! I’d love some of those. In addition…. cinnamon raisin cashew butter? I haven’t had anything like it! I can only hope. Maybe that’s what I should have requested before… πŸ™‚

  23. Lauren

    I also just realized that instead of two readers winning one baked good, I read that as one winner getting two baked goods! Maybe that will amuse you for another entry? I just want everything of yours, is that a problem?

  24. I would have to go with one of the cookies….which one? The lemon poppyseed or ginger…..

    I love giveaways!!

  25. Those Lemon Poppyseed cookies would look lovely in my kitchen πŸ˜‰

  26. Lemon Poppyseed cookies look rockin’!

  27. Amber Shea @Almost Vegan

  28. Amber Shea @Almost Vegan

    I tweeted (@AlmostVeganBlog)

  29. Amber Shea @Almost Vegan

    Thirdly…um…my [current] favorite word ever is “ostensibly.” I don’t know why.

  30. I would love some of your nut butter! Yours always looks so amazing. Probably a peanut or almond butter, maybe your figgy pb?

  31. Can this count as my third entry??? πŸ˜‰

  32. I would want your Plain Cashew Butter and your Cinnamon Raisin Cashew Butter! πŸ™‚ They sound SO good! πŸ™‚

  33. Ever realized the Cinnamon spelled backwards says “Nomannic?” Hehe, how you you sound THAT out?

  34. i’d let you surprise me! anything sounds good πŸ™‚

  35. Megan

    But I know it’s only fate
    That I try those yummy bars

  36. Megan

    I apologize for my lack of poetic skillz, but I’ve had my eye on those date bars for awhile now. πŸ™‚

  37. if i won, i would need to spend hours figuring out my final choice πŸ™‚ it all looks fab!

  38. anything else….well, it’s valentine’s day weekend and im sure you are going to impress someone special with all your amazing kitchen and baking skills!

  39. Lauren

  59. Michelle

    I totally understand the pain that you went through at the store today! I get so excited to go grocery shopping and buy what I’ve been craving that when the store is out I am left distraught. It is bad enough if they don’t have one thing that I need, but a couple is awful! I’m so sorry!
