Homemade granola recipe has become a staple in our home. I’ve become a fan of making it myself because it’s simple and easy; I have complete control over the ingredients and can add extra good stuff; it makes the house smell lovely.
Here is my recipe (more or less since I don’t measure much anymore):
1 1/2 cup almonds, processed or blended to chop them up. **you can use cashews or pecans etc too
1 cup oats (old fashioned or quick... doesn’t seem to matter)
1/3 cup honey
1/3 cup coconut oil melted
1/2 apple diced
4 dates, pitted and chopped
1 tbsp coconut sugar
1 tbsp flax
1tbsp pea protein
1 tbsp hemp seed
1 tbsp lucuma
1/2 tbsp chia
1/4 cup chocolate pb powder
1 tbsp vanilla extract
Dash of salt
*Mix well and pat down in your cookie sheet evenly. Leave some space in t middle for more even cooking.
*Bake at 350 for 10 min and then rotate the pan 180degrees and bake another 10 mins
Let it cool down completely before messing with it if you like it to have the chunks. Store in an air tight container.
We add this to our açaí bowls (really just fruit bowls with tons of healthy stuff added in)... kids love it in yogurt and it’s great for a handful to curb a sweet tooth craving.
The BEST ever flourless oatmeal cookies I've ever made without eggs and without dairy! Soft, chewy and LOADED with chocolate chips, these are an easy and healthier vegan and gluten-free dessert recipe, using just 5 ingredients!
4 cups gluten free rolled oats can use standard rolled oats, if not gluten-free
Sometimes I just make it up as I go along. I love when a theme comes together ...
Served over power greens and purple and green cabbage. I used lemon juice, balsamic vinegar and dairy free vanilla/coconut yogurt to dress it.
This is the best thai slaw I've ever had! My husband begged me for this recipe... haha! I have used this for Chicken or Tempeh and it's great either way. You can eat it over salad or roll it up into a wrap like I do for retreat days.

Healthy Salted Caramel Raw Bites makes ~20 bite sized treats!
gluten free, vegan, refined sugar free, no-bake, dairy free, egg free, freezer friendly
1 cup (170g) fresh medjool dates or dried dates*
1 cup (140g) cashews** see notes for substitutions
2 tsp vanilla extract
Optional but recommended: a pinch of sea salt! I also add some super food powders and seeds to jazz it up but you can play with it to make it your own!
Process all of your ingredients in a food processor until combined, adding a splash of water if needed to bring the mix together.
Roll into balls and place onto a clean plate or baking tray/container.
Enjoy at room temperature, chill in the fridge (our preferred way of eating these!) or freeze for a quick snack whenever you need them!
The bites will keep in the fridge for up to a month or keep for months in the freezer. When freezing, simply take the bites you want to eat out of the freezer and leave for 5-10 minutes to warm slightly before eating (if you can wait that long!)
These are awesome to pop in your mouth before or after a race or just when you are craving something sweet and satisfying without the guilt.
1 cup of your favorite nut butter (I used 1/2 cup all natural pb and 1/2 almond)
1 cup old fashioned oats
1/3 cup honey (local is best)
1/3 cup chocolate chips
I used all the stuff below to jazz these up but you can pick your own adventure
2 tbsps of a **mix (flax/chia/hemp/pea protein)
1 tbsp lucuma
1/2 tbsp ashwagandha
Dash of cinnamon, allspice and pink Himalayan salt
Roll into balls and roll in unsweetened coconut flakes. I store these in the freezer for up to two weeks but this made about 20 balls and they lasted about 18 hrs
**we have this mix on hand to add to lots of things like oatmeal, or açaí bowls
