Raw Chocolate Brownies with Icing

Posted by on Friday, 7 September, 2012

Mmmm, raw brownies are the BEST. This particular raw / vegan recipes are for my friends:

The actual brownie:
1 Cup Pecans
1 Cup Dates (Pitted)
4 TBS of Shredded Coconut
4 TBS of Organic Cocoa Powder
2 TBS Cocoa Nibs  — the Cocoa Nibs are not necessary but I like the added crunch 🙂
1 TBS Agave Syrup
Pinch of Sea Salt

Toss all of the above into your food processor and whip away. It will be a little crumbly, don’t worry. If you find it too crumbly, add a little bit of Coconut Oil, or more agave syrup … Read the rest

Raw Revolution Organic Live Food Bar, Chocolate and Cashew

Posted by on Thursday, 26 May, 2011

I ran in the Door County Half Marathon a few weeks ago and the morning of the race I picked up my bag o’ goodies supplied by the race sponsors. Usually you just get an XXL t-shirt that is completely unwearable, unless I wear it as a dress, and my racing number and forms. But at the bottom of my bag was this Raw Revolution Bar. From the title, you can gather that it’s uncooked. What is it exactly? Well, it’s a combination of things: It’s organic, it’s raw, it’s vegan, it’s soy free, no refined sugars, it’s kosher … Read the rest

Gluten Free Creamy Cucumber Salad Recipe

Posted by on Wednesday, 16 March, 2011

This dish makes a great snack stored in the fridge or a delicious side.

4 medium seedless cucumbers (just over 3 pounds)
1 Tbsp salt

1/4 red wine vinegar
1 Tbsp water
2 Tbsp sugar
1/3 cup organic extra virgin cold pressed olive oil
1/2 cup sour cream (make sure it’s the full fat kind for gluten free and, AND not the Borden’s brand!!)

You can certainly cut the cucumber using a knife, but using a mandoline saves a lot of time and is a lot less painstaking. I simply put on my cut resistant glove and whip through … Read the rest
