Almond Joy Shake (The good kind)

Hello everyone! Today is an awesome day and it’s day of gratitude towards the Lord. I’ve been able to eat raisin and chewy foods in 3 weeks after the surgery. I LOVE almond joy candy bars. Except for the part that they have tons of sugar in them and milk. (I am sort of sensitive to milk) so I have created a recipe where you have the same taste of an almond joy but has lots of protein and little sugar.

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 almond milk (you could use coconut milk also)
  • 1/4 unsweetened coconut
  • 1 big handful of ice
  • 1 big chunk of a dark chocolate bar
  • 1/2 cup almonds
Get out your nice blender, that I’m sure everyone has and put in the the almonds and dark chocolate in and blend until fine. Use a butter knife if the almonds and chocolate stick to the blender. Then put in all the rest of the ingredients and blend until everything blended smooth. ENJOY!

Almond & Brown Rice Pancakes

My mom and dad are gluten free and I’m trying to be! We try to find alternatives to wheat foods. This week we made almond-brown-rice pancakes. They were really good and very filling. So enjoy the recipe and share this page with friends and family! 😉

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup almond flour ( I use my Vita mix blender and blend almonds for  about 2 minutes or until very fine or you can purchase it at a health food store.)
  • 1 cup brown rice flour (I also make this flour in my Vita mix blender. You can also purchase it.)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups (I either use rice milk, almond milk, or goat milk because my body doesn’t do well with cow’s milk.)
  • 2 TBS of sugar (I like to use agave nectar or real maple syrup)
  • 2 tsp of vanilla
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 6 tsp of baking powder
  • 1 TBS xanthan gum
Start by beating eggs together. Then mix in the milk. Add in the rest of the liquid ingredients. Whisk together for 10 seconds. Then add all of the dry ingredients into the liquid mixture. Mix together for about 2 minutes or until fully mixed. Grease a griddle with butter and start adding pancakes 1 inch apart from one another. Makes about 8-10 pancakes 3″ diameter.
Have an awesome cooking day!

Liquids and Soft Foods: Piña colada protein smoothie

Yesterday was January 18th today is January 19th and these two days have been some of the best days ever! I got my new laptop which is drum roll please oh never mind I got a a MacBook Pro. I got gum line surgery on Jan 16th and was in a little pain the next day. But I have been taking pain meds to slow down the pain just a wee bit. I will be eating soft foods and liquids for the next 2 months. I have been drinking cold soups, cold protein smoothies, and already I have been able to get eggs and pancakes down my throat. YEAH! Its has been a good life and God has helped me heal quicker. So for todays recipe I am going to share with you my take on piña colada.

Here is the list of ingredients you will need to make this recipe:

  • 1/2 can of pineapple chunks and all the juice
  • cottage cheese (2-3 spoonfuls)
  • 1 c of ice
  • protein powder (I use Vega Vanilla Almondilla) (1 spoonful full)
  • half a can of coconut milk
  • 1/2 half cup rice milk (My body doesn’t process cow milk very well)
To start, add in all the ingredient after another into a blender and blend for about 3-5 minutes. It’s as simple as that. Pour into cups and ENJOY! It makes about 4-6 servings depending how much a person wants!
Have an awesome day and adieu!

 

 

 

 

Butternut Squash Hash-Brown Patties

I am truly sorry I haven’t been posting in a while…

But I have so many new recipes to share with you and I am going to share one with you right now. So this recipe is soooo EASY and only requires three ingredient. Why are you still here on my website go try the recipe, oh I remember now, you need my recipe! :)

Things that I use for this recipe are a potato peeler, a cheese grater (if you have an electric grater that’s awesome), a griddle ( I love my family’s griddle!) or a skillet would work too.

Okay here is the list of ingredients you will need:

  • 1 whole butternut squash (peeled and rinsed)
  • 2 eggs
  • a tsp of salt (you can add less or more depending how salty you like it)
  • and a drizzle of olive oil for the griddle or skillet

Okay you want to start with the butter squash because that takes the most time out of the recipe. (You want to cut the butter squash it to five pieces just so its not so huge). Having a electric grated would be great but if you don’t you can go the “old fashion way”, you could just use a regular cheese grater. I have a regular cheese grated to so don’t be ashamed. It works! (when your done grating all of that you are awesome) After you grate all of the butternut squash, beat in the two eggs, and salt so that everything is mixed in. Next drizzle the olive oil on the griddle or skillet and wait till the is medium warm. I use a 1/4 cup to measure how much *batter I want to use. So just start adding the batter to which ever appliance you have. You want to wait about 3-5 minutes (3-5 minutes on each side) before you flip them. Once they are done cooking enjoy that’s all I can say. Actually never mind, it tastes good with ketchup too. And that’s way uh-uh uh-uh I like it. Thanks for the support and have a Great DAY! I will post soon….. Make sure to comment below, it helps! :)

SSHHHH! Top Secret OAMMS Granolla!

In third grade I created this recipe.  It was such a hit that I have been making it ever since.  I make a TRIPLE batch and we eat it ALL within a few days!

3 C old fashioned rolled oats

2/3 C sliced nuts (we prefer almonds)

1/2 C coconut

1/4 C salted butter or do unsalted and add 1/2 tsp salt

1 C M&Ms (mixed in after the granola has cooled)

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 325 F.

2. In a large bowl stir together oats, nuts, coconut and salt (if you are using it).

3. In a saucepan melt butter with honey over low heat stirring often.  Then pour it over the oat mixture and mix it in.

4. Put parchment paper on cookie sheet and spread granola evenly over it.

5. Bake in the middle of the oven for 15 minutes – stirring it halfway through to prevent burning.  Cool granola in the pan.  When it is cool mix in the M&Ms.

The granola should be stored in a cool airtight container for up to 2 weeks – if it last that long! 😉
