Peanut Butter Cups

Photo Jan 10, 4 38 29 PMPeanut Butter Cups

1 cup coconut oil

1/2 cup honey

1/4 cup cocoa powder

pinch of salt

1/8 teaspoon vanilla

peanut butter (chilled)

In a saucepan over very low heat, melt the coconut oil and sweetener. Add the cocoa powder and salt, whisk vigorously until well combined, remove from heat. I use mini silicone

baking cups but mini muffin tins work great. Use a spoon to fill the cups 1/4 full, freeze for about 10 minutes. Remove from the freezer when chocolate is hard, make a depression with your thumb for the peanut butter, scoop out the chilled peanut butter, place in the cups (approx. 1/2 teaspoon). Leave room for the chocolate around the peanut butter. Spoon more chocolate over the peanut butter till almost full and the peanut butter is covered. Freeze for 45 minutes. Eat them up, yum! yum! keep cold so they don’t melt.

Ways to use Coconut Oil

  • 1 cup nut butter (almond or cashew) & 1 cup full flavor coconut oil & 2 tablespoons honey

  • 1 vanilla bean to 8 oz coconut oil, 1 searving stevia

  • 16 oz coconut oil, 2 tablespoons of carob, 1 tablespoon honey

  • Coconut oil & pumpkin pie spice or apple pie spice

  • Honey-Coconut Spread—equal parts honey and coconut

2 tart red or green apples, large

1/3 cup bananas, chopped

1/4 cup fresh cranberries

1/4 cup pure maple syrup or honey

1/4 teaspoon cinnamon

1/4 cup nuts, chopped

Cut the stem end of the apple, do not peel. Remove all the core and part of the pulp (save the pulp), leave the walls about 3/4 inch thick. Mix pulp, bananas, cranberries, pure maple syrup or honey and cinnamon. Fill the hole in the apples with the mixture, put 1/2 the nuts on each apple. Place the apples in a baking dish just big enough for the apples, individual size if you like. Add water to cover the bottom, bake in a moderate oven (359 to 375 degrees F.) until tender. Serve hot or cold with cottage cheese or plain yogurt.

Hot Peaches

2 cups peaches sliced, fresh or frozen

Spaghetti Squash

Spaghetti (squash)
1 Spaghetti squash, cut in half, remove seeds
2 tablespoons Butter
2 teaspoons Basil
Sea Salt, to taste
Put 1/2 the butter and basil on each half, salt. Cover with tin
foil (lined with enough oiled parchment paper so squash does
not come in contact with aluminum foil) place on pan (cut side
up). Bake in moderate oven (350 degrees F.) for 45 minutes.
Squash is done when you can put a fork next to the shell and
the squash pulls away easily, scoop squash out of shell gently,
and separate like spaghetti noodles. If over cooked it will not
separate like spaghetti but tastes great. Serve like spaghetti
with Italian spaghetti sauce.
