I’m not sure where I got this recipe, but I have a huge container of Puffed Millet which is part of my pantry clean up effort that I figured would be quickly used up with bars. Boy was I wrong. I used 3 cups and didn’t even put a dent in the container. Guess that will be the go-to on-the-run snack for the family the rest of the summer. The family enjoys them. The recipe calls for INGREDIENTS: natural peanut butter, honey, salt, vanilla extract, puffed millet cereal,and dried apples. I’ll try different fruits in the future and maybe try to make like rice crispy treats with marshmallows.
With the death of chocolate from my new Paleo AIP diet I’ve had to find something to meet my sweet treat. Searching Pintrest I ran across this surprisingly good little treat with only two ingredients; dates and unsweetened coconut. This is a win for me.
Coconut Date Balls
The family loved this dish. I thought there would be extra for lunch the next day, but there was not any left when I went to make my plate. They devoured the entire pan. By the way I used zucchini and yellow squash from our garden. Pappi has potato and tomatoes planted, but they aren’t ready yet. Can’t wait until it’s this can be made from all fresh ingredients from our own garden.
This is day 15 of 365 and 9 recipes out of 314 pins. I actually prepared this salad two days ago, and haven’t made anything new this weekend. This was a good raw recipe served with the almond tortillas from a few days ago (by the way I’ve had to remake 3 times already), but I also took the leftovers and heated them with a little tamari over rice for a sweet stir fry. So, another two in one opportunity. It’s as yummy as it is pretty to me, but my family doesn’t really like it enough to make in large quantities again. I’ll have to cut the recipe back to make individual servings.
We took our first family bike ride yesterday. After just under 10 miles we found ourselves well worked out with very sore bottoms. We plan on doing this on a regular, but we are definitely going to need to get some new seats or padded shorts or something. Fun, but OUCH!!!
I got a little carried away in the kitchen yesterday making a total of 3 of the Pinterest items by day’s end. The final item was something I saw on The Chew. I only sampled a small bit on a spoon after competing jarring, but I liked what I tasted. If I ate meat, this would go well with pork. But I don’t so I’ll let the family enjoy with the recommended grilled crostini. By the way – I substituted Ethereal for Sugar in this recipe.
Maria creates my favorite low carb foods. Although I didn’t try it, this recipe has turned out to be a hit with my husband. We will be using this for sandwich wraps, as a tortilla replacement as well as to replace the insanely high carb indian flat bread we used to love so much. This is a mix, make and repeat recipe for sure.
