Fruit Salad 

Favorite fruit salad! Made this for mom's birthday party and it was a hit! Super easy and delicious! 🍓
(single recipe below, made double recipe in picture) 
1 package of blueberries
1 package of strawberries (diced) 
3 kiwis (diced) 
1 pineapple ( cut in cubes) 
Juice and zest of 1 lime
Juice of 1 orange (medium size) 
2-3 Tbs of honey ( you can tweak the honey to your desired sweetness) 
Pour liquid once ready to serve and mix well. You will eat every bite 😊


Easy Waffles

1 can coconut milk ( you can use the full fat one for a richer flavor or the light is good as well, just cook it longer. Almond milk works great as well, just maybe add a teeny more flour to thicken if needed) 
2 cups oat flour
2 Tbs honey
2 Tbs vanilla extract ( if you like that flavor, not needed) 
1 tsp salt
1 Tbs baking powder ( not actually needed if using a true waffle maker. However they do fluff up more if you use it. This recipe works great for pancakes so do use the baking powder in that case) 
Mix all ingredients and pour into waffle maker. You can spray with coconut oil or use a little butter on the pan but it's not needed as it usually should not stick. I turn the temp all they way high. Cook extra time till golden if needed. 
You can add things such as coconut flakes, chocolate chips, etc as well!! This recipe makes 4 large waffles ( I usually don't pour the entire circle of the waffle maker) 
You can play around with this recipe some. It's pretty delicious though. Let me know if you make them!


Homemade Granola

6 ingredients to bake this yummy granola
4.5 cups gluten free oats
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp sea salt
3/4 cup pure maple syrup
1/2 cup melted coconut oil
1.5 Tbs of vanilla extract
Mix the dry ingredients and wet ingredients separately then mix all together. There should be enough liquid to evenly coat the oats. You may use up to 1 cup of maple syrup and a touch more coconut oil to to make it sweeter and crunchier, I just prefer using less. Another option is to add 1/2 tsp almond extract. 
Preheat oven to 300
I do 2 separate baking sheets lined with parchment paper. 
Spread an even layer onto both baking sheets and bake for 45 min. Turn the granola every 15 minutes so it cooks evenly. 
Let granola cool completely before putting it away. 
I then add whatever else sounds good. I don't like to add these ingredients prior to baking so I add them after. 
Some of my favorites are: almonds, coconut flakes, raisins, cranberries, pecans,etc. Store in airtight container. 


Cabbage Lime Salad

azurefarmFavorite New Salad 🌱 got this from a friend on pinterest then tweaked it a bit. 

Vinaigrette: ( I use these measurements and made a double recipe, I like the salad to have more, but you can use less. This stuff can basically go on anything, it's SO good) 
1/4 cup fresh lime juice
1-1/2 teaspoons agave
2 tablespoons olive oil
Seasoned salt to taste
2 cups thinly sliced green cabbage
2 cups thinly sliced purple cabbage
2 carrots, peeled and jukienned
3 green onions, sliced thin on an angle ( I tend to add more) 
1 cup coarsely chopped cilantro ( you can do 1/2 cup but I like it a lot) 
1/4-1/2 cup of pumpkin seeds ( this could be optional but it adds a nice crunch)
Optional : Cup of cut mango ( I like the champagne mangos) 
Optional : 1 raw Jalapeño diced
Mix the lime juice and agave into a large bowl and slowly pour in the olive oil while whisking. 
Next, add in the cabbages, carrots, green onions and cilantro. You can then add the mango and pumpkin seeds on top or mix them in with the rest of the salad. Make sure it's all thoroughly mixed. 
Serve immediately.

Note: if making this slaw in advance, keep the dressing separate. Refrigerate until ready to toss together and serve.
