  • I love love love that you are so real and ACTUALLY EAT!! You look amazing (which I know is a result of hard work) but I think you are one of the best example setters in the youtube fitness world right now. Keep doing your thing girl!

  • This looks and sounds YUMMIE, Dani. I am looking forward to trying this recipe ASAP. Thank You for sharing another great recipe. ��

  • Made this to night delish so glad I made it. Had a salad with it to get veg in. froze some for another night and rest of filling going to use during the week.

  • You are such an amazing role model Natacha!! I wish this could been shown in schools to young girls because there is so much damaging content out there these days:( just watched a video of a ‘health’ youtuber that ate about 1300 kcals and it just made me so sad to think girls will watch that and do the same. You are an amazing example of how you can be super lean, eat well and eat good portions!!xx

  • LOL… I always watch your vids but my goodness…. when u took the foil off the mozzarella melted looked like cum.
    Oh god…. I was so embarrassed to think that as I saw it but honestly… I am sure I was not the only one.

  • Love the video. Recipe is great. Fabulous editing and background music.

    Do yourself a favor and take out the slang. Without the slang, the video would be extremely professional. I could see you having your own show on Food Network.

  • I see a lot of zucchini recipes that look and sound so good but most have a tomato-based sauce. Are there any other types of sauces I could use?

  • Thanks for this recipe! Much easier than the zucchini lasagna I’ve seen. I made it vegan and used Morningstar crumbles and Daiya cheese. Delicious!

  • How do you work out your macros? I’m so lost and they’re something I don’t want to get wrong! Do you know where I can work them out??:)

  • You are soooo talented! I love your recipes! Do you have a recipe for a dark Christmas cake? Preferably sugarless or made with stevia?

  • Thank you so much, I followed your pumpkin recipe. The taste is creamy nutty, thanks again and please keep posting healthy recipe. Looking for your up to date postings.

  • I love love your videos they are so easy and healthy.I made these today and they came out Awesome my coworker and sister tried the same recipe. Thank you your helping me to really get in the kitchen and cook.

  • Great recipe, but needs a bit more tomato liquid. Also, you could incorporate some grated pecorino into the meat mixture for extra flavour.

  • I just have to say that I binge watched all of your videos recently and you are seriously my biggest inspiration right now, both fitness/body-wise and because you are honestly so down to earth. Also I LOVE that you love sweet things as much as I do, I’ve been using so many of your dessert recipes since finding your channel!

  • My husband cannot eat bell pepper or any sort of pepper, what would you suggest I substitute for the bell pepper? This sounds so yummy.I saw someone used beans but we don’t like beans, thanks!

  • going to try this today! looks so yummy�� just curious how would I find the amount of calories? I’m dieting by counting calories… thanks

  • I like most of your videos and subscribed. However, I would enjoy more if it was less extra talk except for substitutes and tips concisely. Also, this recipe would be great if you do a reduced or fat free version. Especially, since pumpkin is my favorite��

  • Dear Dani, thank you for sharing all these recepies, honesly, each one of them is simply perfect. Thank you again & keep the great work!

  • I must try these. Also, will try with FRESH Sweet Pot, instead of Pumpkin! TY! And Happy Thanksgiving to u & yours.��������������������������

  • Made this last night for dinner and I must say it was delicious. It’s my fiance’s favorite dish now!!:-) We had the leftovers for lunch today and to my surprise, it was even better than the night before.. Since I’m not a fan of green peppers, I replaced it with mushrooms. Thanks for posting such easy and healthy recipes; I can’t wait to try something new soon!!:-)

  • I’m in lovvvveee with all these recipies. I just want to head to the grocery store and buy all this produce and try everything. But it’s difficult when you’re a student living on a tight budget. Do you have any tips??

  • That cookie dough looks amazing! I’ll have to try it… also, your outfit is so nice! Can I ask where it is all from? Especially your Bralet & top? X

  • Thanks for sharing lovely, and it’s so important that you are sharing how to recover from metabolic damage and eat intuitively. SO much love xxx

  • So great to see someone eating a varied diet and not promoting low calorie or keto

    Seems like everyone is on keto, sone of us girls working out beef our carbs lol

  • The problem I have is that I do not get hungry very often, however i know that i have to eat otherwise i can just eat 1000 calories and feel fine, so i eat anyways, but any tips?

  • hi natacha! I want to eat big meals but i can’t because I hate looking bloated and i get so bloated so easily! All I eat is healthy things:(

  • Update from below….even though the batter was a bit soupy going into the muffin tins…it still came out really great and yummy. they were a bit hit. Looking forward to making them again.

  • Going to do this with sweet potatoes! Thank you I was looking for an alternative crust, that is gluten-free and with things I already have at home without having to go to the store again.

  • These were fantastic and much cleaner and tastier without the pie crust. I also love your Chunky Monkey Muffin recipe. Thanks Dani!

  • Made these today for Thanksgiving, they are delicious. The crust is just as tasty as the pumpkin layer on top. Not too sweet and very creamy! Love Dani’s recipes, she does all the trial and error, and I get to bake/make the perfect finished product. Thanks Dani!

  • These really are like a pumpkin and pecan pie all in one!!������ I would whip up coconut cream for me to go on top!! Yumm….these are going to be amazing this holiday season!! Tfs����

  • Looks yummy. Can you skip using the eggs? I have found that many baked goods really don’t need eggs.. Can use mashed bananas instead.. or no binder at all.

  • Hi, what kind of whipped cream is that?
    Can you make cream filling for whoopy pies with coconut milk, like you’re using? If not then what would you make it with? Maybe coconut milk and powdered sugar?

  • So excited about this recipe! I wanted to find something to take to a thing where a few people are celiac, and I’m allergic to dairy, so I wasn’t sure what to make (dairy free is easy, gluten free is harder). This solves both, and it’s fall festive! Also thanks for the tip about putting the extra coconut milk in smoothies-I can’t tell you how many half-used cans of the stuff I’ve had go bad, not knowing what to do with the rest. Oh and one thing I learned about those silicone muffin liners-they stand up on their own! So if you don’t have a muffin tin or only have one, they can also stand up on their own on a cookie sheet.

  • Did I miss something because last I checked eggs fall into the dairy category…lol oh well got excited by the title. Thought I finally found a great DAIRY free, gluten free dessert like the title said

  • Those do look delicious except for the eggs,can I use egg substitute and if so which one do you recommend for this particular recipe? thank you.

  • This was extremely helpful for food/meal ideas and I absolutely loved & appreciate that you put the total carbs at the end of your day! Do you typically weigh out all your foods to make sure you are hitting your macros?

  • I have these in the oven as we speak only it is modified. I used 1\2 n 1/2, no coconut, and I used sugar, butter, and 3 whole eggs. The pumpkin I used is my dehydrated pumpkin. It is smelling very Devine in the house.

  • I made these and they are wonderful!!!! I’m going to try to freeze them so I don’t have to make them again for Thanksgiving in 3 weeks. Wish me luck. You didn’t mention if they would freeze well.

  • Hi Dani Are these mini muffins or larger? Looks larger in the video. Plus the crust batter seems alot for 16 mini muffins…just making them now and I’m wondering if i should opt for the larger cupcake liners….

  • This recipe looked really yummy and wanting to be gluten and dairy free I wanted to try it. I have a very small kitchen and don’t have the equipment you have here so i did the best with what I had. I hit a few snags…with the ingredients. The coconut cream I bought was a “cream” and didn’t have the thick layer on top with the water on the bottom ( I have seen that when using coconut cream before but this one didn’t have it and I had no other) and the pumpkin purée was a a little watery too. So the batter I poured into my muffin cups looked more like pumpkin soup than pie filling. It’s cooking right now, will have to give you the update later.

  • These sound delicious. I’m going to make them. I was happy to find the per serving calorie count on your blog in the comment section. I was also happy to learn these can be frozen.

  • Im so confused. I work with an app called Lifesum, its awesome and it says I can eat 1300 calories a day in order to lose 6 kilos. Help?

  • Hi, Dani. I made those today. Everything was amazing before putting the pies to the oven. The filling tasted divine, the crust was absolutely delicious. I was so ready for a success. I did everything according to the recipe and took them out couple minutes earlier only to find out several hours later that the crust is completely burned… I am devastated to say the least and now I have nothing to bring to a potluck party tomorrow. I was wondering if you have an idea how I can avoid this next time? Do you think it could have happened because I substituted dates for maple syrup in the crust? Or something else?

  • @ 2:28,where did you get that Fresh Produce,Locally Grown sign?,I would like to have one of those.I found a hidden over size zuke in my garden this morning (funny how you can walk by one 10 times and not see it),and I will be doing your recipe,thanks for posting.

  • omg this is amazing I get SO hungry and probably eat well over 2000 cals a day of mostly clean foods to fuel my activity but i always get freaked out when I see other fitness people eating 1700-1800 for maintenance I’m always like “what’s wrong with me why do I need so much food” this makes me feel so much better!!

  • Just made these. Didn’t have strained tomatoes so I used leftover tomatoe squash soup. Thought mine was a bit juicy so I sprinkled in some rolled oats. Hope that was ok Dani ��. Anyway the family loved it!! Thanks girrrrll❣️❣️

  • did she say ground bison??? are we on skull island? ever wonder “what am i gonna do with this can of yeti meat??”… oh i know ill make some zuchini boats.. and sail my tatse buds into paradise.. remember its not the size of the boat that matters.. its the motion of the ocean..

  • Nice videos and so good tips! But go vegan, that would be even better for you, the earth and (of course) the animals! And here is really not a hate comment…

  • Hi, they look so good. My little granddaughter has an extreme dairy allergy, does Reddi WHIP not have dairy in it? I think she would love these.

  • Love it!
    Trader Joe’s also sells cans of coconut cream, the whole is nothing but coconut cream.
    And Trader Joe’s is the most inexpensive place that I found cans of pure coconut cream at.

  • OMG I made this last night had it this morning with my toddler, they are so delicious, taste better than store brand so healthy, so fulling I had 2 wanted to eat more. Had chocolate on one and coconut flakes on the other, got to work on the chocolate glazing more though.. So tempted to eat another one right now. lol. I used swerve in place of the coconut sugar didn’t have. Great job @ Feasting on Fruit. Will try to post a pic if I can.

  • Hey! I thought you weren’t making videos. I haven’t received notifications in months. I unsubscribed and subscribed again. YouTube is trippin’

  • The recipe looks delicious and colourful… I will definitely try out this recipe…
    Do stay connected us…let’s be friends..
    Thank you for sharing such a wonderful recipe…!!
    Team Damma’s Kitchen

  • Omg delicious �� and is there a chance I can substitute the almond flour to other flour? I have buckwheat and coconut would they work? Thanks ��

  • Hi there! I would have to change your recipe. It is not dairy free if it calls for eggs. I would make a flax egg. Otherwise It sounds great.

  • I hit 2000 cals today but that’s because I had a lot of cake and choc ): I usually target 1300 cal, but I’m a really small person haha. I’m jealous you can eat so many!

  • Hi! Wow you remain me to my mother she always made the rounds ones with �� an Mexican cheese �� then she put in the oven is so crazy delicious. Tnks

  • Made yesterday and the mixture is delicious but the zucchini was awful. They turned the consistency of creamy baby food..I’m gonna make them a little different next time and keep the zucchini more crisp

  • Natacha! Just wanted to say that I love your vids. Looking at your physique is very inspiring to me and I hope to be fit as you one day! Keep up the awesome work xx

  • @Dani Spies I need recipes that can be heated up in the microwave 1 or 2 days later. Can you tell me if this would work ok with this recipe? And if so, should I skip the blanching (since it’ll be heated up again in the microwave)? Thank you!

  • A bit off topic but… your lashes are sooo long and beautiful! Are they naturally like that or do you use a lash curler or a special mascara?:-)

  • Dani if you go to goodwill they have a load of single lids for 99 cents. A big one like this may be 1.99 I myself, tried to find a lid in the store, but they never carry just lids and you have to buy a new pan to get a lid, goodwill actually may have a big one like you need. Check every week they get new stuff. Thank you for a great recipe:)

  • Hey Natacha,
    I have a question. You mentioned in some of your older videos that you’re a student. How do you cope with the physical and mental stress on your body? How do you balance this so your hormones don’t go all out of whack and start storing. I’ve been reverse dieting for about 6 weeks now. Eating 2400 calories a day, and training. A few more weeks here I want to do a cut, but not sure how my body will react with the environment i’m in with this stress I asked about. Any insight? Thank you so much!
