BananaFanna Almond Fudge Bar

Ohhhh my! What could be better than banana, nut
butter, and chocolate, combined in a bar????

I love these, and my grandkids LOVE them too. It’s a great nutrient-dense treat to include in their packed lunches for school or daycare!!!

Use your creativity and swap out a few ingredients. Add a dash of cinnamon and pinch of cayenne for more depth of flavor. Increase melted cacao for a more fudgey version. It’s all good!

Comment below if you plan to try this, and let us know how it turns out!!!!

Pizza Kale Chips

While in the dehydrator, my kitchen smelled like a pizzaria!!! Amazing!

These are delicious and I can’t wait to serve them tomorrow!!! Next time, I’ll make my Rawsages recipe, and crumble that on top of these chips....mmmmmmm!

I hope you enjoy these as much as we do.  Feel free to bake inborn if you don’t have a dehydrator. Preheat to 220 degrees F.....bake for 30 minutes, keeping watch so they don’t burn.

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.

Fabulous Living Oatmeal

This is the BEST oatmeal we've ever tasted. It's nothing like cooked, mushy oatmeal. The texture and flavor are fantastic. Delicious and nutritious!!!! A nice hearty breakfast when you are craving something more than a smoothie. Sticks to your ribs AND energizes! Great way to send your kids off to school!

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.

Apple Walnut Muffins - Gluten-Free

Served warm from the dehydrator, these muffins are very reminiscent of the SAD (Standard American Diet - aka BAKED) version. I didn't make them too sweet, and sunflower seeds can have a little bite, so sweeten according to your taste. I love the "Autumn Spiciness." Drizzle with raw honey, cashew cream, or your favorite fruit "syrup"...oh, and some raw ice cream - HEAVEN!

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.

Spicy Orange Fennel Kale Chips

What a fabulous blend of flavors! I'm a huge kale chip fan, but love to discover new ways to make them. This experiment turned out amazing! Some of my favorite flavors, fennel, orange, and red bell pepper.  Add a little zip and a little sweet, and you have simply FABULOUS kale chips!

Pecan-Sunflower Seed Milk - Milk Does a Body Good

If you have not explored making your own nut milk, please consider doing so. It is very simple, does not take a lot of time, and is extremely delicious and satisfying!

Tired of almond milk? Try mixing other nuts and seeds. Today I used pecans, sunflower seeds, dates and vanilla extract. It was fabulous!

Brownie Cake with Mocha Almond Fudge Cream

Okay you gluten-free, dairy-free, health nuts...I purchased these cute molds and wanted to try something super decadent. Drooling yet?  If you don't have access to this type of mold, no worries...use the cake recipe as a deep dish crust and fill with the Mocha Almond Cream.  You may have some extra brownie cake batter - SHUCKS! Eat it as is, freeze it in small molds for a fun frozen treat, or create little brownies with cake mixture, stuffed with cream and dehydrate for a several hours. Decadent AND nutritious. No bake...no guilt.

Magnificent Mango Hummus - (Raw Vegan)

After preparing a Coconut Mango Cream Pie that was to LIVE for, I still had some leftover Champagne Mangos (Ataulfo) from a case that needed to be used. I also froze a bunch to use for "ice cream" at another time. So today, I whipped up this Magnificent Mango Hummus and served it in a few romaine lettuce leaves. I could see this going really nicely on a salad, but would also make a great dip, if thinned out a bit. This is definitely a QUICK and EASY recipe!

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.

Sunflower Seeds and Shoots...and Putting it All Together...

When you start exploring the world of Living Food, it can seem a little intimidating. It's been over 2 years now, and as I sit here with a happy tummy and a glow of accomplishment, I have to tell you some of my thoughts... and also share my meal with you. It took me about 30 minutes to put this gorgeous meal together. Yes, some things were prepared in advance, and when you learn how and when to do this, it makes the joy of preparing a successful raw living meal, immeasurable. All of the steps that I've learned up until now are coming together, like musical notes for each instrument in a symphony. The gratification I'm feeling is immense. How can I put these feelings into words and accurately convey to you, just how fulfilling and worthwhile this can be?  The commitment to invest a bit of  your time and energy, and learn about living food is required. I like to play... and I love to experiment, in fact, to me they are one and the same. I never imagined I'd be where I am now...chopping greens out of my garden, photographing them, and then writing about it. Have a few moments to spare? I'd love to show you what I prepared for dinner tonight...

Spicy BBQ RAWsh Kebobs

Raw vegan veggie kebabs are the bomb! When I discover a good thing, I try to find multiple ways to use it. For instance, last week I posted the Spicy BBQ Zucchini Chips and because of this outrageous BBQ Sauce, the chips were jaw-dropping outrageous! Between the two of us and friends, they don't hang around long! I thought it might be interesting to create a kebab, using the same BBQ sauce on veggies. Oh yeah!  I hope you enjoy this as much as we did!

BBQ Kale Chips (RAWBQ)

The BBQ Zucchini Chips were such a hit the other day, I used the same recipe on dino kale (Lacinato). AWESOME, although, very different texture from the zucchini chips. I personally prefer curly kale...either way, this recipe is a winner. It's VERY zippy, so tone down the red chili powder and cayenne, if you don't like spicy!

Spicy BBQ Zucchini Chips (RAWBQ)

A friend gave us some overgrown zucchinis. Large circumference zucchinis do not spiralize well. So, how about making some "potato" chips? These are so crazy reminiscent of BBQ potato chips, I can't believe it! Warning - they are very spicy, so cut down on the hot red chili powder and cayenne if you want a tamer version.  You may want to double this recipe...they are amazing!
