Yummy 3-Ingredient Organic Breakfast Cookies

Organic Breakfast Cookies (rainbow effect thanks to a crystal on my kitchen window sill)
You may already have come across these delicious breakfast cookies but thought: "hey, where's the good stuff? The sugar? The eggs? The fat?"  Well, the good stuff is all in the ingredients-- this is a whole food recipe which means we aren't using derivatives, we're using the real food, and it doesn't need to be gussied up with animal products to have incredible mouth appeal (that is what fatty, sugary, salty, custard-y textures and tastes contribute).  So, I say, try 'em and if you're disappointed, well, add some of the other ingredients...

INGREDIENTS (all organic and non-GMO)
    • 3 well-mashed Bananas
    • 1 C. Old-Fashioned Oat Flakes
    • 1/4 C. Chia Seed Gel
You can go with these 3-- pretty delicious by all counts-- or you can add in one or several of the following:
  • 1/4 C. chopped Nuts (I like pecans) or Seeds
  • 1/4 C. unsweetenened Coconut shreds
  • 1/4 C. Raisins or dried berries, figs, apricots, etc.
  •  1 tsp. grated fresh Ginger or 1 tsp. Cinnamon or 1/2 tsp. Nutmeg, etc.
  • 1/4 C. Apple Sauce
  • Sprinkle of Celtic Sea Salt
  • 1/4 C. Carob powder with 1 tsp. Cinnamon
  • ?? (what did you try that isn't listed above? How did it turn out? Please tell in comments below.

INSTRUCTIONS:
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F./180 C.
  2. Combine everything until well mixed
  3. Drop 12 cookies onto a cookie sheet covered by a silicone mat or parchment paper
  4. Bake for 15 - 25 minutes (different preferences, different ovens)
  5. Cool.  Eat in-hand as a cookie or, as my husband prefers, in a small stack with almond milk on top (like a super-rich, sticky banana porridge). However you eat them, they are 'natural' and yummy and easy on the digestion!
And a BIG BONUS

Here is a link to a very interesting presentation on the nutritional status of GMOs -- explained very clearly by Dr. Thierry Vrain, a soil scientist who worked for Agriculture Canada for many years.   If you are still confused about whether GMOs are over-played by the health nuts or terrifyingly justified by the Frankin-monster agro-industrialist supporters, this is a good video to watch for basic scientific understanding.

    Good Summer Morning Chia Pudding

    Here is a fast and easy Chia Pudding that is perfect for breakfast (or as dessert, etc etc etc).  Chia pudd fans will know what I mean...  .                               . The Recipe is pretty simple.  You can vary it as you like, but this combination is a winner at our home and I think we will continue to use this as a standard for a simple breakfast pudding. I start by gathering together the ingredients and a wide-mouth Mason Jar with a lid. The ingredients are: 1/4 C. Chia Seed 1/4 C . Liquid Honey (or other sweetener of choice) 1/2 tspn. Vanilla Extract 2 C.

Scoop pudding into small bowls or small j

    3 Quick Delicious Refreshing Carrot Salads

     These 3 carrot salads are all vegan, but not all familiar. It only goes to show that carrots have a life of their own in the Veggie World. When I go scouting for a delectable and easy-to-make vegan recipe, I like to think I vet the best on the Internet. I check out various social venues-- Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest-- and google for the top-pagers as well. Then I read over the selection and toss the ones that sound a little too traditional or fussy.  1.  Viral TikTok Carrot Salad with Asian Flare (with Instagram's Stephanie Manzinali that.veganbabe) *that.veganbabe* demonstrates how to put this ribbon salad together in a flash. You will find other great salads that include carrots among her repertoire as well. Go HERE to the post. 2. Spicy Carrot Salad on Youtube with Everyday Gourmet  This looks very tangy and adventuresome for people who like a little zing in their summertime meals. Carrots are sweet, and some honey is also added to the recipe (I guess you could us

    The Power of Flowers

    Fragrant Flowers on our Morning Walk In my more youthful days of gardening I was all about organic food plants.  As I get older I have begun to enjoy planting and caring for flowers and herbs more. That is not to say that I do not have organic food gardening as a priority!  This year my husband has stepped into the gap in a big way (the 'gap' being my spending less time in the garden).  He has a 5-gallon pail of compost tea burbling away at all times, another pail of comfrey tea brewing under the grape arbor, and is experimenting with strewing agricultural lime in any patch of ground my eyes have fallen upon.   We have just put in  Saskatoon berry bushes, a few Sea Buckthorns, and 3 Sour Cherry trees (or bushes or whatever they will be) as well as the usual assortment of greens (kale, chard, collards, cilantro, parsley, romaine, etc.) and beans and a vast forest of little tomato plants, many donated by kind friends and neighbors.   We also have a square foot herb
