2 Cups fresh or frozen brussels sprouts halved
2 Cups spinach
1/4 Cup walnuts
1/4 Cup fat-free feta cheese
2 Tb dried cranberries
1/2 Tb Orginial hummus … I used this as dressing
(You can use whatever you prefer, even just the balsamic & olive oil are great alone )
Olive oil & balsamic vinegar
Salt & pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 375. Lay brussels sprouts on a baking sheet and drizzle with olive oil ,balsamic vinegar and add the salt and pepper to taste. Bake for 20- 30 minutes, rotating occasionally. Combine the red onion, and dried cranberries in a pan over medium heat , again add another little drizzle of balsamic . Sauté until onions carmalized. Allow to cool, then mix all ingredients in with your spinach, walnuts, feta, and hummus.
Quest Bars are my absolute favorite! I just recently started experimenting with baking them. This is my first quest bar “recipe” and I was very pleased with how easy & delicious these turn out when baked.
1 cookie dough quest bar
1 coffee greek yogurt ( I use light & fit)
a drizzle of raw chocolate syrup
Preheat your oven to 350.Open the Quest Bar and put in the microwave for no more than 10 seconds to soften. Flatten it out just a little and cut into strips. I made about 3 stripes from 1 bar. Place Quest strips on baking sheet and bake for 5-7 mins. Enjoy with your yogurt & chocolate (or whatever topping you prefer)

2 cups brown rice flour
1/2 garbanzo bean flour
1/2 coconut flour
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 Tbsp sugar
1 Tbsp yeast
1 1/4 cup warm water, divided
1 Tbsp olive oil
1 cup hummus (any flavor your prefer)
1/4 a red onion sliced
1/2 a bundle of cilantro
1 avocado sliced
A handle full of cherry tomatoes sliced
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a small bowl, combine yeast and 3/4 cup of the warm water . Let this set for 5 minutes to activate the yeast. Sprinkle in the 1 Tbsp of the sugar a few minutes in.
In a large bowl, combine your flour blend, salt, and baking powder. Mix well.
Add the yeast into your dry mixture. Combine in olive oil and the additional 1/2 cup warm water . Mix completely , creating your dough. You can use your hands or a wooden spoon to fold the dough.
Lightly coat a baking sheet or pizza stone with non-stick spray or line with parchment paper.Use your hands to flatten and spread the dough out. You want the dough to be fairly thin.
Bake the crust for about 30-35 mins. Until it becomes golden brown. Your crust might look cracked a little…this is normal.
Allow crust to cool for a few minutes, then spread hummus and top with your fresh veggies.
