For M

Here's couple of recipes for M. I don't know if these are my favorite or not. My favorite recipes we pull out in the summer when all the garden produce is on. And I'm enjoying the book, Nourishing Traditions, by Sally Fallon.
We also love smoothies. We use frozen fruit (fresh when in season--so we have fresh mangoes and oranges right now), a leaf of kale, fresh ground flax seeds, hemp oil, coconut milk and orange juice. I'd use some raw milk if I could.

Quinoa granola

4 C quinoa flakes
1 C shredded unsweetened coconut
1/2 C ground flaxseed
1/2 C honey or maple syrup
1/3 C melted coconut oil
Mix all ingredients together in a 9x13 glass pan. Bake @ 325F until golden, stirring often.
Cool and store in an airtight container.

Teff Sunbutter cookies

In a food processor, blend until smooth:
1/2 C maple syrup
1/2 C coconut oil
1 tsp vanilla
1 C sunbutter or (nut butter if you can)
Mix in
1 1/2 C teff flour
1/2 tsp sea salt
Shape into walnut sized balls, flatten gently with a fork. Bake at 350F for 15 minutes.
Cool on pan 5 minutes. Transfer to rack to finish cooling
