APPLE CRUMBLE

I LOVE  FRUITS!

Fruits are really good for you because they are a natural source of vitamins, minerals and fiber. They contain nutrients that are important for our body  and help with the proper functioning of the digestive tract.  If I could eat fruits all day, I would. Since fruits have fructose in them, having a lot of it would create some health issues, at least long-term. Therefore, as for anything else we eat, moderation is always key. I usually have at least two to three servings of fruit per day.

When I go grocery shopping I always load my shopping basket with a variety of fruit especially if they are running a special. What I cannot use within 3 or 4 days I usually freeze for my smoothies later.

Apples seem to be lasting longer then 4 days, if kept in the refrigerator.

I had 4 apples in my refrigerator and I wanted to use them for baking but never found the time to do it. So today, I decided to just make a quick and easy apple crumble with them. It turned out great and I made it Gluten Free!

Ingredients:

  • 3/4  Stick  of unsalted Butter
  • 4 Apples of your choice (I like Gala)
  • 4 Tbsp Raw Honey
  • 1 Tbsp Coconut Sugar
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 2 drops Lemon Essential Oil
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 1/2 tsp Cinnamon
  • 2 Tsp Arrowroot flour
  • 1/2 Cup Sprouted Brown Rice Flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 Cup Almond Flour
  • 1/4 Cup Flax Flour
  • 1/4 Coconut Flour
  • 1/2 Cup Chopped Almonds

Start with apples by removing the skin and cutting them in cubes. Add to them the lemon juice, lemon essential oil, 2 tablespoons of honey, vanilla extract and mix well. (if you like cinnamon you can add a pinch) Add the arrowroot flour and mix.

Grease the bottom of a pie pan with coconut oil, pour the apple mixture in it and compact it a little bit.

For the top I start with the butter at room temperature then I add all the flours, the salt, the cinnamon and the remaining honey. Mix lightly so that it looks like crumble. Now add the chopped almonds to it and mix lightly. Poor this on top of the apples in the pan and sprinkle it with 1 tbsp of coconut sugar.

Bake at 350 F for 30 minutes

Enjoy while it is still warm.

Chocolate Chips Cookies

I love these Chocolate Chips Cookies!

When I make them they are gone in no time. I cannot keep myself or my husband away from them!

I came up with these cookies  that are not only Gluten Free but are made with Raw Cacao Nibs instead of the traditional Chocolate Chips. I know I can indulge myself in one of these cookies anytime I feel the need for that little pick me up or to satisfy my sweet tooth.

The Raw Cacao Nibs taste so good and give them a nice nutty texture. Just give them a try, you will thank me later!

Ingredients:

Start with melting the butter then add all the wet ingredients. Mix well. You do not need a blender, I usually use a big fork. Add all the dry ingredients until the consistency of cookie dough. Add the raw cacao nibs last. Use a teaspoon to drop the dough on your greased cookie sheet (I use either butter or coconut oil).  Shape each cookie by pressing them down with your hands.

Bake at 350 F for 20/25 minutes

About 20 cookies depending on size

Crunchy Nut Bars

Crunchy Nut Bars

Gluten Free and all good for you!

These nut bars are my favorite. I just cannot stay away from them! And they are not only gluten free, but also dairy free and grain free!

CRUNCHY NUT BARS
CRUNCHY NUT BARS

I usually have one (or two♥) for breakfast with my morning hot chamomile tea, it is the perfect combination and it will keep me full until lunch!

Replace less healthy snacks, such as chips, with a handful of nuts. Sprinkle them on breakfast cereal and salads. Nuts make a great addition to many of your favorite side dishes and entrees. They will provide you  with  key proteins and nutrients, good fats, antioxidants, and aid in the reduction of cholesterol.

Almonds are highest in calcium of all nuts.  They   are  also high in fiber, vitamin E and magnesium.

Hazelnuts are rich in unsaturated fats, high in magnesium, calcium and vitamins B and E. They  are good for your heart, help reduce the risk of cancer, and aid in muscle, skin, bone, joint and digestive health. 

Walnuts  are high in omega 3 fats, antioxidants. They are good for your heart, can help protect against cancer, and are good for your brain aiding in reducing depression and the risk of age related diseases, such as Alzheimer’s.

The raw cacao nibs are less refined than chocolate liquor or cocoa powder and thus are more nutritionally potent.  Cacao nibs may provide important benefits to your heart and blood vessels, intestinal regularity, and blood sugar level.

Cinnamon Essential Oil  contains strong cleansing and immune support properties.

Lemon Essential Oil not only provides cleansing and digestive benefits but it also enhance the flavor of desserts and main dishes.
