Sprouted Lentil "Rye" Crisps

I truly adore these light, crisp crackers with a nut or seed pate or humus. Growing up Jewish in "Joisey," I was raised on, and loved a really good Jewish Rye. The ground fennel seeds in this recipe work their magic, providing a tone so very reminiscent of this bread....and now...no gluten or processed junk to worry about.

Lentils and buckwheat are easy to sprout in a Mason jar, using sprouting lids. Click HERE for directions on sprouting buckwheat. Lentils take a bit longer, but don't need to be dehydrated.

Sprouted Cinnamon Grammy Crackers for Big and Little Kids

As a proud Grammy, caring part time for my grandson, I've decided to create new food ideas perfect for toddlers and their mommas. I'm thrilled to present this amazing nutrient-dense treat. Not a Mom or baby? No worries...you'll enjoy these too!   It's NUT, Dairy, Gluten and Sugar FREE! Don't have a dehydrator? Try a low temperature oven..I like to use a  dehydrator and I've not personally tried it, but I can't imagine it would be difficult.

Rawfully Tempting Raw Chocolate Fruit and Nut Bark


This was gone gone gone before I could get a good photo. Tempering raw chocolate is possible, but challenging. I'm not a greatchocolatier as I don't have the patience or the equipment, however, I try to attempt manually tempering whenever possible. For a quick..."I don't care about fussing" treat...simple - DO NOT temper. Throw this tastiness together, and store in the refrigerator or freezer. WARNING: It will melt in your hands..so EAT it quickly, or break into smaller, bite-sized pieces. This will cure any junk food craving for sweets!  There are several optional ingredients. I hope you use this blog for educational purposes, so even if you don't choose to use all of the suggested ingredients, you may at least become aware they exist.

Muesli Breakfast Mix - "Cream of NO-Wheat"

I'm in LOVE with this delicious blend. Just so you know, some of these ingredients are not raw. Feel free to substitute with a sprouted/dehydrated version. It's Winter on the East Coast, and popped Amaranth and toasted sesame seeds bring out the flavor in this mix! This is one of the tastiest mixes I've made and a favorite in our home.

Rawfully Tempting Herb Stuffing

It's getting close to that time of year again...This stuffing is superb and can be ground into the most amazing "bread crumbs." Totally dry it makes a great munchy mix. Rehydrate it or only partially dehydrate it, for a soft, fluffy stuffing. I'm loving this recipe and the house smells so good too!

Sprouted Rum Buckwheat Crunchies



Sprouted Buckwheat Crunchies can be made in almost any flavor...just change the extracts. My favorite flavors are rum and mint, but caramel is yummy too! Use the basic recipe and switch up extracts for variety.  Store these in an airtight container, or glass ball jar in the freezer and always have them on hand.

Raw Gingerbread Cookies

What is this magical holiday season without Gingerbread Cookies? Feel free to use this recipe and make Gingerbread Men too! I'm packing these up in gift bags for family and friends, and also taking them for our road trip to visit the GrandPrincess. If you don't have a dehydrator, just freeze them, and eat as is!

Buckwheat - How to Sprout

Buckwheat is simple to sprout and takes less time  than other grains because technically, once rinsed, it doesn't need to be soaked. Buckwheat is gluten free and can be a great alternative to those with a sensitivity. Once sprouted, dehydrate and grind into flour, or use whole and add a crunch to a variety of recipes. Some examples I've made are Candied Mint Buckwheat, Rum Buckwheat, Peppermint Buckwheat, etc. I use it in bread, crackers, chips, granola and cereal as well.

Terrific Truffles - Energizing Treats



The holidays are drawing near and I wanted to surprise my family with nourishing treats. We'll also be on the road and now have some energizing snacks for us to nosh on. For sweet toothers, you may add more sweetener than what I suggested below. These are more spicy than sweet.

Who says we have to eat junk on the holiday? Spend time with your loved ones and warm up with these deep chocolate/spicy delights.

Cocoa Crunchy Granola

A great breakfast treat for your kids when trying to wean them off of junk cereal. It's also a great snack to pack in their lunch boxes. For the "big" kids, this is just a delicious and nutritious treat for any time of day. Traveling? Take this treat on the road. This is  a very versatile recipe. I encourage you to pick and choose the ingredients you like, and have...and re create your own version. Pssst! Add a little ground flax or chia and water to the mix, and you can form into little energy bars or cookies.

e-Book Sneak Preview


Living Pizza - I'm really looking forward to getting my first publication completed and available for download, however, my hard drive crashed and it's been a month of technical nightmares trying to get my laptop up and running again. After 5 days, my Carbonite restore is still only downloading empty folders and we are at about 20 percent now..(sigh). They've restarted it multiple times, only delaying the agony. I'm crossing my fingers and hoping that in the next week..I'll be able to reorganize my folders, access my book files...and compete this project. In the meantime, here is a sneak preview of one of the goodies you will find in this upcoming book...Enjoy!

Choco Crunchy, Munchy Buckwheat Treats - Sprouting Buckwheat

A fun, nutritious snack food, as is, but feel free to serve with a little nut milk, and enjoyed this as a healthy breakfast cereal. I gave it to W with some almond milk, raw sunflower seeds, goji berries, shredded coconut and a dash of cinnamon.  It was amazing!

This was an experiment and I don't have exact measurements. There are so many possibilities you can add to this. Be creative!

Rawfully Tempting Super Energizing Brownies

Chock full of super foods like hemp seeds, flax seeds, chia seeds, sunflower seeds, sprouted buckwheat, goji berries, and more...these little brownies pack quite a punch. I'm thrilled with the chewy, cake consistency, that is really hard to achieve with raw treats. Biting into these feels just like a baked brownie. (And they smelled good too)! I need to do a little tweaking...but these are wonderful!!!
