Organic Egg Burritos
1 Flour Tortilla
2 Free Range Eggs
Organic Garlic Salt
Organic Butter

My son is quite a picky eater. He has within the last year or so given up eggs, and just when I got chickens, agh! Anyway, he will eat them if I scramble them, sprinkle them with garlic salt and wrap them in a tortilla. This has been his breakfast lately. It's nice also because he can eat it on the go!

So, scramble (country scramble or however you like) the eggs in butter. Sprinkle with a little garlic salt and wrap in a tortilla. I then cut the tortilla in two pieces and wrap each piece in half of a paper towel. This way the egg doesn't fall out the bottom.

Happy Baking!

Organic Gluten Free Black Bean Brownies
15.5 oz Can Organic Refried Black Beans
3 Range Free Eggs
3 T. Organic Olive Oil, Coconut Oil or Palm Oil
½. C. Cacao Powder
Pinch of Salt
1 t. Organic Vanilla
¾ C. Organic Sugar (I like Sucanat)
½ C. Chocolate Chips – Soy Free (Enjoy Life Brand) Optional
Raw Nuts – Optional
Organic Powdered Sugar - Optional

Mix ingredients in a bowl and pour into an 8”x8” greased pan. Bake at 350° for 30 minutes until the top is dry and brownies start to pull from the edges. A toothpick inserted should come out almost clean. Top with powdered sugar, chocolate chips and nuts.

These brownies have a more cake-like texture than the normal gooey, thick brownies. If eaten warm they kind of fall apart. Great on ice cream…They are great because they use no flour at all.
I found a chocolate chip that is completely soy free, and gluten free, from a company called Enjoy Life®. Soy should only be consumed in a fermented state: soy sauce, miso, tempe. If not, it can create estrogen dominance in your body. But that’s a whole different story. Happy Baking!

Organic Three Flour Waffles Makes Approx. 6 Waffles
1 ¾ C. Raw Milk
3 Free Range Eggs
¼ C. Organic Olive Oil or Organic Applesauce
1 t. Sea Salt
½ C. Organic Rye Flour*
½ C. Organic Millet Flour**
1 C. Organic Spelt Flour***
2 t. Aluminum Free Baking Powder

I adapted this recipe from the one in my Blendtec® recipe book. I try not to use white flour, even if it is organic, unless I feel the recipe really really needs it for results. And this one doesn’t, so I made my own blend. These flours together have a very nice consistency and a golden colored result. And, the critics love ‘em! I whipped them up for breakfast this morning and made a double batch to freeze. Think I’ll do the rye pancakes next…Oh yeah, I've been using applesauce a lot as a substitute for oil in my baking recipes. It works great and seems to give more elasticity. Don't be afraid to experiment.

Put all ingredients in your blender as listed. Turn on and viola! No separating eggs. And no sugar. They are amazing! Let me know what you think. The batter is super runny but I have not had a problem with it. At first I thought they wouldn't raise but as you can see they work great. I love homemade peanut butter on my waffles also, yum! Happy Baking!
*Rye - Triggers lower insulin response than wheat. High in fiber.
**Millet - High in nutrients. Gluten Free. Easy to digest. Does not ferment in the stomach. Nearly alkaline.
***Spelt - High in nutrients. Nearly alkaline. Non-hybridized so many people with wheat intolerance can eat it.
(There are many other benefits to eating whole grains. Just google any of them and see for yourself.)
