Very Good (1 rating)
Black Bean Amaranth Brownies

I created this recipe. I may need to tweak the ingredients based on the results.

Results: Took exactly 30 minutes for the toothpick to come out clean, so I don't want to do too much to change the wet to dry ingredient ratio. These came out with a fudge consistency. They are very edible, but taste like they are missing something. I think they could be a tad sweeter. On my next attempt, I may add some chopped dates and see if that helps.

Amaranth Muffin Recipe

I created this recipe myself. It is a work in progress as I continue to tweak ingredients to see what works. The recipe that follows is my second attempt. I felt it came out well enough to share with others.

High Protein Healthy Pancakes

Adjust recipe as necessary if too dry or too moist. Can substitute blueberries or raspberries for the strawberries for variety!

Garlic Buttermilk Mashed Potatoes

Original recipe called for boiling the potatoes in chicken stock. We decided to skip all that sodium and boil the potatoes in water.

Banana Raspberry Smoothie

My kids and I really enjoy having a smoothie with breakfast. It's a great energy and mental boost!

Apple Butter

Great tasting apple butter without the guilt of sugar!

Tip: I used 4 different kinds of apples instead of all one type. Experiment to find a combination that tastes best to you.

Green Vegetable and Quinoa Soup

I found this recipe online, but I change a few ingredients to remove animal products and to make it my own.

No Bake Chocolate Oatmeal Bars

My own experiment that resulted from my boyfriend buying "lite" shredded coconut when I needed regular for my "raw fudge". My kids gave it a "two thumbs up."

Chocolate Coconut Fudge

Make a healthy version of homemade fudge without having to cook!
