I have a feeling you will LOVE this recipe! A simple quick bread recipe that can be made into muffins or even bread. Cinnamon Banana Raisin creates a comforting flavor and while they taste indulgent they are sweetened naturally with raisins and ripe bananas.
Fresh garlic and cilantro are infused into the dough, cooked over a piping hot skillet on the stove, placed over the gas flame for a few seconds and then brushed with optional oil, garlic and cilantro for one heck of a flatbread experience.
You know what I love? A hot warm biscuit right out of the oven. Don't you? Southern biscuits are made with healthy alternatives to the original yet are still so soft you can pull them apart, slice them easily, spread them with jam or top them with gravy.
Bring your meal to the next level with homemade biscuits. These biscuits are incredibly simple to make, they roll out easily, press into a circular shape with the lid of a mason jar and take less than 10 minutes to bake. We served ours with soup and loved them! Place them in a basket wrapped in a towel and serve warm, soft biscuits with your next meal. These would be great for the holidays and Thanksgiving coming up. Plus, they are vegan, gluten-free, oil-free and yeast-free for a completely plant-based whole-food recipe you can feel good about eating and sharing with others.
Some of the fondest memories of my grandma include her homemade zucchini bread. I had a couple extra zucchinis lying around and decided to make a loaf. I made a unique version that is free of gluten, dairy, oil and even sugar! I couldn't believe most zucchini bread recipes call for 1 cup of sugar, I always thought it was healthy since it had the word zucchini in it. Now, it really is healthy as cranberries or raisins are used instead of refined sugar to naturally sweeten the loaf. The results are better than I hoped for, it naturally puffs up while baking and then gets a nice golden crust. The inside was baked through and through. My husband and I found it extremely hard not to eat more than a serving, especially knowing how good it is for you. You are going to love this recipe!
1 Cup Packed Shredded Zucchini
1 Cup Cranberries or Raisins
1 Cup Dairy Free Milk
1 tsp Apple Cider Vinegar
6 Tbsp Aquafaba
1/4 Cup Mashed Ripe Banana
1 tsp Vanilla
2 cup All Purpose Gluten-Free Flour
1 Tbsp Baking Powder
1 tsp Baking Soda
1 tsp Ground Cinnamon
1/4 tsp Sea Salt
Recipe of the day:
In our travels we once stayed on a property owned by a sweet Mexican family. One bright morning we looked out and saw the mom making handmade tortillas. She had a station set up outside, her dough in a bowl, would take some out, press it in her hands and make her family the tortillas needed for that day. It was such a warm archetypal motherly feeling when watching her. I've tried my hand at tortillas and have had success but they are typically not very circular. Thankfully, one day, I was buying fruits and vegetables and my husband said he'd be back. Later that day he surprised me with a tortilla press made in MX! It makes the process so much easier and they turn out perfectly! You can find the recipe on the back of bag usually, the simple recipe I use is below. I can't help but think of that family and that fine morning when I make tortillas!

Sometimes there is nothing more comforting than a PB&J! It brings me right back to being a kid and fond memories. Those memories extend through out my life. Is it true for you? My husband is a huge fan and I knew he'd be tickled if I made him one. With homemade oat bread, pecan butter and strawberry jam, satisfaction was found!!
Oats and water plus a few other ingredients are all that will be needed to whip up a loaf of bread. It's not the fanciest loaf but it's warm, hot, gluten-free bread that works great as sandwich bread. Spread some nut butter and jam and you are eating few ingredients, all of which are healthy for you! No preservatives here, no additives, sugar, dairy, oil or gluten just 100% healthy ingredients to create a yummy sandwich!
For the bread:
Add Your Favorite Nut Butter and Jam. We chose a pecan butter with Homemade Strawberry Chia Jam!

The bread was sweet and the texture was perfect. I am making it again, this time using molasses, because agave is so expensive. I highly recommend this recipe."
Hi everyone! I hope you all had a fantastic weekend and were able to get some much needed down time. We watched The Secret as it had been years. We were blown away at how connected it was to my husbands new book 7th Planet, Mercury Rising. Similar concepts of energy and thought were discussed. Very interesting!!! I decided to test The Law of Attraction and envisioned fresh roses. Soon I was in the kitchen baking up this beauty. When I created this recipe I made it with love for my husband and for the first time thought to extend that love to ALL of you. My hope was that it would turn out extra delicious so you could enjoy it too. It worked!!! I shared some with our friend and soon it was gone in a flash. When I stepped outside to garden I turned and there was our friend with fresh cut roses! The Law of Attraction in action. :) It was a neat moment that I thought I'd share.
This is an extremely special recipe. I first made it when dating my now husband, Gerald. It was so good I'd use the recipe for special occasions. It was the first homemade item I shared with his eldest son who really enjoyed it. I made loaves for my girlfriends in the office one year and as I was baking the bread, I would insert my knife to check on it. I'd taste it on it's way out to ensure it was worthy. ;) In that process I dropped my retainer in the oven!! I scrambled to get it out quickly and burned my arm. The retainer was okay but I had the scar even on my wedding day! It's since faded. Haha so be careful ladies and gents. Moral of the story? Slow down, pull the loaf out first, then insert the knife. Thankfully it was worth it. The recipe forged a memory in my brain and to this day they ask for the recipe!
This recipe was originally for pumpkin bread and still can be my friends. I just happened to have a sweet potato so therefore it became sweet potato bread. The beautiful thing? I used 1/4 cup less sugar due to the sweetness of the sweet potato. Oh yeah! It's been years since I've made this recipe and I won't let that happen again. It's SO good!! This is a recipe to keep around for years to come. It works every time, others love it and it tastes incredibly good.
1 1/4 cups gluten free flour
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon cardamom
1/8 teaspoon cloves
1/8 teaspoon ginger
1 cup sweet potato puree
1.5 tbsp flax meal
1/4 cup warm water
¼ cup dairy free milk
1 ripe banana
1/4 cup coconut sugar
Best wishes for a beautiful week!
I love a good sandwich, don't you? Soft bread...
with fresh ingredients slathered in sauce and more bread.
It's even better when the bread is really good for you! A few months ago I stumbled upon a recipe for raw gluten-free sandwich bread from Super Kitchen Machine. It looked so good I could hardly believe that it was raw. I bookmarked it and have had it in the back of my mind since. With this week focusing on Rawmazing Recipes I thought it was the perfect excuse to make it.
With little effort I soaked, blended and molded the bread into a small yet beautiful little loaf. I turned it on for the night and by this afternoon we were making a sandwich with 100% Raw, Gluten-Free, Vegan & Kosher Sandwich Bread. It was absolutely delicious and turned out better than I'd hoped for. I can hardly believe it is raw!
To make this delicious bread you will need:
"Nature itself is the best physician."
To a vibrant healthy week!
With so much love,
