Raw Brownies!

August 17th, 2013 035

Simple. Nutritious. Delicious!   🙂

1) Process one cup of walnuts and a half a cup of almonds in your food processor until they resemble crumbs.

2) Add in a half a cup of cacao powder, half a cup of unsweetened coconut and a pinch of raw vanilla powder (or a drizzle of good vanilla extract).

3) Pulse that all together and then add in one and a half cups of soaked, pitted dates.

4) Pulse until it all comes together, press into a lined loaf pan and into the freezer for about thirty minutes.

5) Drizzle a little homemade chocolate over the top and slice into small, bite size squares…

Store in the fridge or the freezer!

Happy Saturday!

Veggie Veggie Wrap

January 25th, 2013 018 - Copy

Oh, I have been wanting to make something like this for so long!

I believe we will be eating this everyday for the next three years!  🙂

It is SO good!  Raw, vegan, gluten-free and super nutritious… YAY!

I actually bought the greens to make one of our favorite snacks… you know the one with the peanut butter, dates and sunflowers seeds??  🙂

I have seen a lot of beautiful wraps over the last little while, some done with rice paper (another great idea!), but how can you go wrong with greens  – brilliant!

It’s almost like an uncooked cabbage roll!

Swiss chard or anything similar will work.

Wash and dry.

Use about one third of an avocado and smash it up with a fork in the middle of the leaf.

Add in your veggies of choice.

Today we used (all beautifully organic) … grated carrot, grated red cabbage, sliced red pepper, sprouts, a bit of chopped kale, diced green onions and cilantro… and then sprinkled a few chia seeds in there.

We then topped it off with a few (3 or 4) raw cashews, a dash of red chili flakes, cumin, smoked paprika & oregano and a squirt of lime juice.

Wrap it all up, just like a cabbage roll and enjoy!

Mini Graham Houses!

Here’s a great idea for a Sunday afternoon craft project!  🙂

We love that these are mini – perfect size for one little person to decorate all on their own.

You’ll need six graham crackers per house (gf graham crackers are available!), some royal icing and some ‘goodies’ you like to decorate with.

About an hour before decorating (I actually did it the night before) …use your icing to ‘glue’ the edges of the house together.  Use four crackers first to make the base and the last two to make the roof.

SO simple!

Let the kids do the rest!

Pumpkin seeds make great shingles…  just sayin’.

29 more sleeps!  🙂
