Roasted Turmeric Chickpeas

roastedturmericchickpeas

I love roasting chickpeas for a healthy snack. With their high protein and fiber content, chickpeas make for a great snack. They help to control blood sugar levels, improve digestion, increase satiety, and are loaded with essential vitamins and minerals. I tossed my chickpeas with turmeric, cumin, rosemary, black pepper, pink salt, and avocado oil. The flavors came together so nicely.

Chocolate Zucchini Loaf

ChocolateZucchiniLOAFsliced

Wasting food is a pet peeve of mine.
I grew up in a very humble household, where we were taught to appreciate food and eat everything that was on our plate.
We weren’t aloud to leave the table until we did. I had so many zucchini’s that I needed to do something with them!
I decided to bake a GF/GF, Dairy-Free, Paleo Chocolate Zucchini Loaf.
This bread is nut-free, too! Just skip the nut topping.
Truthfully, this is one of my favorite breads I have ever baked. It is not too sweet, and it has just enough chocolate to make you smile.
I topped my slice with a scoop of coconut yogurt, a drizzle of cinnamon maca almond butter, a sprinkle of organic unsweetened shredded coconut, organic raw cacao nibs, and a few organic raspberries.
I hope you enjoy!

Food brings the family together.
Luckily, I love to bake!
It warms the hearts of everyone around me, including my own.
There is something special about the love put into the prepping and cooking process.
I want to make sure the people I am serving enjoy it, and can feel my love through my cooking.


Here is the recipe:
2 and 1/2 cups almond flour
1 and 1/2  cups grated zucchini
2 cups organic raw cacao powder
4 Tbsp coconut oil
4 eggs
1/2 cups honey (if vegan, use maple syrup)
1 Tbsp vanilla extract
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp Salt

Plantain Banana Peanut Butter Bread

bananabread1

I asked one of my friends to pick up bananas at the store so we can bake some banana bread.
She came back with about 10 plantains.
I hysterically laughed.
She honestly believed she bought bananas.
We fell to the floor laughing for about 10 minutes.
Once that was done, we questioned what the heck we were going to do with all of these plantains?!
Well, here we go!
This is where Plantain Banana Peanut Butter Bread was born!
So, just to clear the air… I haven’t prepared plantains in about 15 years!
So this was a challenge.
A challenge I was ready to take because I always LOVE a good challenge.
This bread is amazing.

Ingredients:
2 ripe plantains, yellow with black spots
2 very ripe bananas
1 cup PB2 powder
1/2 cup coconut flour
1/4 cup cassava flour
3 T melted coconut oil
2 Tbsp honey (if vegan, use maple syrup)
1 Tbsp vanilla extract
1 tsp ground cinnamon
3/4 tsp baking soda
