This Grain Free Fig & Vanilla Granola fills the house with the most heavenly scent! I could make it everyday, just for that smell.  It is super easy to make, only takes about 10 minutes of hands on time and it is full of fabulous nutrition and taste.

I have many parents coming into the community who's kids are new to the whole foods world.  That is why many of the recipes I create err on the sweeter side. Making these homemade-whole food and gut healthy versions of processed foods a little on the sweeter side at first tends to make for an easier transition.  Once your taste buds are adjusted you can begin cutting back on the sweetener.  This recipe calls for 1/3 cup of honey.  You could use half of that amount and still get a great result.

 
Even with the full complement of honey and dried fruit, this granola packs a good nutrient punch and less sugar than the packaged variety. Full of fiber, protein and gut healthy fat it keeps blood sugar balanced and energy purring along.  It also comes with a full compliment of of micro-nutrients like potassium, magnesium, zinc and vitamins A and K just to name a few!  A big upgrade to that box of Quaker Oats Granola that might have had a spot on your shelf before today!
 
I hope you will give this grain free Fig & Vanilla Granola a try, maybe even this weekend, and I'd love to hear your what you think.

Just Peachy Bites – Paleo, GAPS, SCD

These peachy bites make a wonderful school or summer camp snack or just a treat on the go! I love using ingredients that are in season and local when ever I can.  This recipe is all about peaches.  Sweet, tangy, juicy peaches are coming into season and this is a great way to preserve all the wonderful goodness!  If you like to buy your fruit by the caseload, like I do at this time of year, you can even dry your own peaches for the recipe! I can’t seem to keep mine around for long enough to do that so the video demo features some dried peaches I purchased at my local health food store.

The recipe is of course dairy free, gluten free and gut healthy.  It complies with all the major gut healing protocols including the GAPS and SCD diet.

The gorgeous sweet tangy chewiness of these peachy bites will be a big hit with the kiddos. They won’t even know it is full of amazing health supporting nutrients like omega 3 fatty acids, selenium, magnesium and even some iodine to keep them healthy and thriving.

Make a double or triple batch and keep them in the freezer for up to a few months for quick and easy school lunch packing.

Don’t have dried peaches?  Try the recipe with dried apricots, mangoes or even figs.
