LSA

INGREDIENTS:
3 cups linseeds (flaxseeds)

2 cups sunflower seeds

1 cup almonds

INSTRUCTIONS:
Mix and grind together until fine.A regular coffee grinder will do the job.Store in a dark airtight glass jar in the refrigerator. This mixture has a slightly sweet and nutty taste and can be sprinkled on rice, pasta, fruit, veggies, or just about anything. It is a good source of protein, essential fatty acids, minerals, and fiber and is definitely an anti-ageing mixture.

Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

INGREDIENTS:
3 cups oatmeal
2 eggs
¾ cup sugarless applesauce
¾ cup plain yogurt
½ cup sugarless peanut butter
½ cup clover honey
1 tsp. vanilla
½ cup chopped walnuts
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. baking powder
3 tsp. cinnamon
1 grated orange peel
¾ cup brown rice flour
1 cup (or more) dark chocolate chips
Optional: some dried apricots for topping
INSTRUCTIONS:
Don’t turn the oven on yet. First wash the orange and dry it.

Then put the oatmeal into a mixing bowl. Add the wet ingredients (eggs, applesauce, yogurt, peanut butter, honey, vanilla). Mix and let it soak while you prepare the rest.

Put the walnuts into a sealable plastic baggie and shut it tight. With the peanut butter jar roll the walnuts to crush them, turning the baggie over often. Use just gentle pressure. When crushed finely, dump them into the bowl.

Now grate the orange peel directly into the bowl. This takes the most time and muscle.

Add the small dry ingredients (baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon), and mix.

Now you can preheat the oven to 350°.

Mix in the rice flour and chocolate chips.

Put tin foil over two baking sheets. Lightly oil. Also lightly oil a spoon. With a non-oiled spoon scoop out some batter, and with the oiled spoon, scrape it off onto the cookie sheet. Place them in rows 4 by 5 (total 20 cookies) on each cookie sheet. Optional: thinly slice dried apricots and lightly smash a couple pieces onto each cookie.

Bake at 350° for 13 minutes. While the first sheet bakes, clean up your mess. Put the skinless orange into the empty walnut baggie, and use it for lunch tomorrow. While the second sheet bakes, eat the first batch. Take the second batch to Monday night football. The guys will think they are real cookies.

I usually make this recipe with walnuts, but you can use pecans, almonds or cashews, too – or even a combination of your favorites!

In a heavy skillet, mix the nuts, sugar and butter.  Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, for 6-8 minutes or until the sugar is melted and the nuts are toasted.  Spread the nuts onto a buttered baking sheet or a piece of aluminum foil.  Separate into bite-sized clusters.  Cool.
