flax crusted pecans

These pecans were really tasty…and it made it even better that they were somewhat healthy. I thought it would be fun to try and crust pecans with some flax goop. So I did!

Ingredients for pecans:

1/4 C pecans
2 T flax meal
2 T water
1 T agave syrup
1 t cinnamon
a little salt

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix all ingredients above in a saucepan over medium heat. Cook until pecans are nicely gooped up :). Place on a sheet pan and bake until toasted and a little crunchy (5-10 minutes). Let cool! Otherwise they might burn the roof of your mouth like they did mine. They will be slightly chewy…but I kind of like that.

Add to your om of the day with anything else that you might desire. A little almond milk? I liked it just plain with the pecans…

apple cinnamon oat bars

This is a great recipe that I found in the Whole Foods flyer and I think they’re pretty good.  The only thing that I did differently was that I used a sheet pan and made them really thin…that way they make great sandwiches with some peanut butter in the middle!  Yums!


Ingredients:

2 cups unsweetened almond milk
1 1/2 cup steel cut oats
1/2 cup chopped pecans
1/2 cup raisins
2 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
2 (about 1 lb) apples (I used Pink Lady and Gala apples), cored and grated

Directions:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix all ingredients together in a large bowl. Transfer to a foil- or parchment paper-lined 9″ square baking pan, press down and smooth out the top and bake until firm and golden brown, about 1 hour. Let cool in pan; cut into squares and sere warm or at room temperature.
