Maple Cinnamon Granola

Warning, this recipe takes a long time. But the time is spent mostly waiting for it in the oven. The end result is well worth it! You guys remember my last granola recipe with quinoa. I must admit, I didn’t have the granola clusters, but that’s because I learned you were not supposed to stir it around. This time around, I learned better and left it untouched and used more than one pan (it makes a lot!) Continue reading Maple Cinnamon Granola

Beet & Raspberry Smoothie

I had a lot of beets leftover to use up. This smoothie is another recipe in the beets saga.  This one is mixed with raspberries, to create a deliciously red smoothie. It can be boosted with a pinch of cinnamon  or cayenne. Best of all, it is sugar-free, so no added sugars, relying on the natural sugars of the beets, raspberries, and bananas.

Cashews. Probably my most favourite nut out there. It’s so versatile, I love using it in everything, from stir-fries, to using it as the ‘cream’ component in a sauce or custard. It gives everything a richness and creaminess without feeling heavy…or the use of cream/dairy! And then I thought, what better way to try and use them to create a nut butter!

It’s another one of my overnight crock pot steel-cut oats series! I always try to switch up my oatmeals each week. There was one week I decided to be creative and use beetroot and blueberries for a delicious pink(ish) oatmeal. This one might take a bit more work to prepare, but it really is worth it!
