Thank you Ms. Peas and Crayons for always hosting. I’ve always wanted to learn how to make my own sushi, and Jenn actually had a great little post about it the other day. If you’re interested, here is the link . I actually love making sushi with short brown rice and vegetables like cucumber, carrot, and avocado. It makes a great little lunch!
Let’s talk about some healthy snacks!
Cinnamon Apple Banana Rolls….
….the tests of these are making great snacks for my husband and I!…I shall have a recipe soon!
We have pizza night about once a week and often eat the leftovers for lunch…lately I’ve been hiding the toppings under the cheese so that Jadie will eat her veggies without knowing it…teehee.
Chocolate avocado pudding is another favorite of ours! So creamy and low carb to boot!
Today’s recipe is going to blow you away…(I hope)!
This is so rich and decadent, and it is super low in sugar!
Originally I was just going to have apples and caramel to dip them in, but once I got started, I couldn’t resist creating this pie. It’s easy enough to make in a pinch and delicious enough to share with a loved one….or not….
CARAMEL APPLE PIE FOR TWO
1/2 c. raw walnuts
1/2 c. dried figs
Process all until it resembles a meal. Press into a small dish.
1 small apple, chopped
2 t. ghee, butter, or coconut oil
1 t. maple syrup
1/2 t. pie spice
Heat fat in a small skillet. Add apple, maple syrup, pie spice, and salt. Saute all for about 5 minutes, until apple is softened. Stir in the vanilla. Cool a bit and pour onto crust.
2 T. raw almond butter
1 T. maple syrup
1 T. olive oil
1 1/2 T. almond milk
Whisk all into it resembles a thick syrup. Pour into a shallow non-stick skillet. Heat until it begins to bubble. Turn down the heat, and let the mixture simmer for 1 minute until it begins to thicken and darken. Turn off the heat, and let the mixture sit for a few minutes on the warm burner. Pour atop the apple filling.
This would be great with some coconut whipped cream and a few toasted walnuts for garnish! It is so easy to make and super delicious! I wish I could give out samples to everyone to prove it!
Next Monday, I hope you all will visit me for my guest post at Adrienne’s blog Whole New Mom ! She has a thoughtful, health-centered blog with great content and great recipes, and I’m excited to be a part of it. I’ll be posting my recipe for Creamy Cauliflower Alfredo Sauce. Have a great week everyone!
