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.
Here is the video for our first episode of the School Snack Series. A live Facebook series that will air each Thursday afternoon.
This one is for my Berry Blast Energy Balls.
These little balls are full of nutrients like vitamin C, fiber, antioxidants, healthy fats and even protein. With just the right touch of sweetness from dates your kids will be thrilled to find these in their lunch box! They are gluten free, dairy free and grain free. All ingredients are GAPS diet compliant, Paleo and of course whole foods! You can adjust sweetness to suit the taste of your child. For those just making the transition to whole foods you may find you need to sweeten it up a little bit at first and then begin cutting back as their tastes adjust.
If you have questions feel free to post them. I would be happy to answer for you. If you like the video give it a like and tune in for our live videos on Thursdays through out the summer at 12:00 noon MST.
