Blueberry Apricot Breakfast Bars

Posted by / in BLOG, Tastes /

Homemade breakfast bars allow you personalize their ingredients! I enjoy the balance of sweet blueberries and apricots with tart cranberries, but feel free to experiment with your own favorite fruits. These bars fit the bill for a simple and easy snack for those busy mornings (or afternoons)! These bars will also curb any sugar cravings you might have without sending you on sugar roller coaster.

Ingredients:

Coconut Oil (heat tolerant oil)

4 cups old-fashioned rolled oats

1 cup whole-wheat flour

1 tsp ground cinnamon

1 egg plus 3 egg whites

1 cup unsweetened applesauce

3 tbsp raw honey

1 tsp pure vanilla extract

1/3 cup chopped dried apricots

1/3 cup dried blueberries

1/4 cup dried cranberries

1/4 cup raw unsalted silvered almonds

1/4 cup of sesame seeds

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Spread coconut oil on 11×8 inch glass baking dish.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk oats, flour and cinnamon.
  3. In a medium bowl, whisk egg and egg whites. Add in applesauce, honey, and vanilla until smooth. Using a rubber spatula, add flour mixture in until no whites streaks remain. Then add in apricots, blueberries and cranberries.
  4. Empty bowl into the glass baking dish and spread evenly. Sprinkle top with almonds and sesame seeds. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes.
  5. Let bars cool completely in the dish. Once cooled you can cut into squares.

Microgreens – Loaded with Nutrients

Posted by / in BLOG, Tastes, Tips /

Think of microgreens as the teenage version of salad greens and veggies.  Arugula, broccoli, clover and chia seeds to mention a few varieties. These 2-3 inch baby plants are harvested about a month after they’re planted, at this time they are at their nutritional peek and loaded with nutrients. People have even started growing their own window sill microgreens. Here’s a source if you want to add microgreens to your kitchen (Sprouting Kits). My favorite microgreen is pea shoots because of their mild sweet flavor.

Microgreens in the past had only been available to upscale restaurants but now they are popping up in your local produce section. And here’s an example of why they deserve a space in your cart. For example a radish microgreen has more nutrients like vitamin C, E and beta-carotene than the eating the radish itself.  These greens deserve the spotlight for your next salad because they are so easy to add in. Microgreens can also be added to salads, smoothies, and sandwiches. They can be quite flavorful so add a little to start.

Spud.ca will even deliver microgreens right to your front door, brilliant! (Here’s my referral code CRCAL-CAMJOD to get $20 in FREE organic groceries)

Adding baby greens is a simple step to adding more of the good stuff into your diet.
