Its starting to feel like the Holidays

After skiing this weekend.... and seeing snow again! We're even seeing Christmas Decorations in Target!?!?

So first things first...Thanksgiving! As you all know the trouble of Thanksgiving... marking the first feasts of the season! Well I find it harder and harder each year to disguise the things I can eat as foods for everyone! So as I told my Barre class Monday... I do promise I will get you the wild rice recipes! I just have a few options to try first ;)

Starting off though, I'll play around with some breads...

Apple Raisin Bread - went pretty fast - not as fast as the Pumpkin Squares, but I'll get to that too!

Gosh! I truly apologize for taking so long to write in...

I took a muffin recipe with some modifications, but doubled the recipe as you will be entertaining (and for right now, Alex and I would be sharing them with his roommates and my parents (who I like to call my roomies) to get the most reactions).

Apple Raisin Squares

2 Flax Eggs (2 Tablespoons flax, w/ 6 Tablespoons warm water, let them sit in the bowl for a little bit) - mayyybeee though you can ALWAYS use 2 real eggs

1 3/4 cups Almond Milk (or any type of Dairy)

1.5 cups Raisins (I'm a big fan of the jumbo mixed raisins that Trader Joe's sells)

1 large chopped apple (peeled and cored) or 2 small apples

1 banana

1/3 cup Coconut Oil

1/3 cup Agave Nectar

1 Cup All Purpose GF Flour

1 Cup Coconut Flour

2 cups Oats

6 teaspoons baking powder

2 teaspoon nutmeg

4 teaspoons Cinnamon

you could add chopped walnuts if you wanted to :)


Set the oven to 400 degrees

In one bowl, allow the flax to mold together to form the egg, stirring a little bit (or whisking your egg).  Add the wet ingredients and then mix in the dry ingredients.  Grease the baking dish and pour into the dish. Cooking for about 20 - 25 minutes.

And serve!
