MMM, MMM, GOOD!
This tried and true recipe is a big hit at FOCF and is sure to please your taste buds!
3 cups sliced almonds
1 cup raw pumpkin seeds
1 cup raw sunflower seeds
1 cup raw unsweetened coconut, shredded
1 T. coconut oil
1/3 cup honey
1/3 cup almond butter (ground at the store – not from a jar)
2 tsp. vanilla
1 tsp. nutmeg
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 cup golden raisins, or dried cranberries, or dried blueberries, or a combination of all
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Mix coconut oil, honey, almond butter in a small saucepan and warm just until ingredients are blended. Remove from heat and add vanilla, nutmeg, and cinnamon. Set aside to cool. Stir sliced almonds, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds and coconut in a bowl. Stir in cooled honey mixture. Mix everything together. Dump mixture on a PARCHMENT paper (not wax paper, ha, ha!) covered cookie sheet. Gently spread and separate with your hands to the size of chunks you desire.
Bake at 350 for about 30 minutes, or until lightly toasted. Do not ‘over toast!’ Let cool for a bit and put mixture into a storage container or ziploc bag with the raisins and/or cranberries.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Sugar Coated Donuts
No, this recipe does not have peanut butter in it. No, this recipe does not have white cane sugar on it. Yes, the recipe title is very deceiving. It sounds more fun if naughty words are used. Unsweetened cocoa powder sunbutter banana date sugar and coconut crystal coated donuts just doesn’t seem to have the same ring to it!!!
8 dates, pitted
1/2 cup sunbutter (or nut butter)
2 tablespoons honey
3 heaping tablespoons coconut flour
2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
1 heaping tablespoon coconut oil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
pinch of salt
2 tablespoons date suger
2 tablespoons coconut crystals
1 tablespoon coconut oil
1 tablespoon raw honey
- Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and grease your donut pan.
- Place your banana, dates, sunbutter, and honey in the food processor and puree down until soupy.
- Then add your eggs, coconut oil and vanilla extract and puree down even more, scraping the sides of the food processor as needed.
- Place your coconut flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, cinnamon and salt in a large bowl and mix together.
- Pour your food processor mixture into your dry mixture and mix together until it’s completely combined.
- Pour in your donut pan. Mixture makes 6 donuts exactly.
- Bake for 18-20 minutes or until the little guys push back when you poke them.
- Let cool.
- Mix together your honey and coconut oil in one bowl (place in microwave to melt if needed), and your date sugar and coconut crystals in another bowl.
- Once donuts have cooled, use a basting brush (or whatever you like to call yours) to spread on a thing layer of your coconut oil and honey, then cover your donuts with the sugar. Place donuts into the sugar, then flip it over and sprinkle it on all sides.
- Eat em up!! Holy moly, that’s food beauty right there.
