Nut & Seed Clusters

I bought my kids chocolate covered almonds the other day … At $4.99 a bag x 3, when I saw their bags disappear within 3 minutes I thought spending $15 for a few ounces of nuts and chocolate (oh btw they also had many other ingredients that were basically unnecessary chemicals) was ridiculous! This is how this recipe came to be … I always have nuts and seeds of many kinds… I buy in bulk when they are on sale. Get creative, add dry fruit, a dollop of almond butter …

1 cup nuts and seeds
1 1/2 cups Enjoy Life Chips
2 tablespoons coconut oil

– Melt the chocolate and coconut oil in double broiler.

– On a piece of parchment paper arrange the nut clusters… 1 cup should divide nicely into 8-9 mounds. I seriously almost counted the nuts to make sure they were even to avoid a fight! Brats!

– I simply poured even amounts of chocolate over the nuts and seeds and gently tapped the tops with spoon so that the chocolate covered every nut and seed.

– Leave on counter for 30 minutes (if it’s nice and cool) or place in refrigerator to harden.

Quick Pan Gravy

I usually make a delicious pan gravy when I bake chickens but I needed something quick and fast! So here YA go!

1 whole onion, sliced
3 carrots, peeled and sliced
3 garlic cloves, minced
4 tablespoons tamari or coconut aminos
3 tablespoons ghee
1 tablespoon paprika
1/4 teaspoon ground pepper
1/8 teaspoon dry sage
1/8 teaspoon oregano
Salt to Taste
1-2 cups stock

– Caramelize the onions, garlic and carrots in ghee. This should take at least 30 minutes.

– Add the spices, salt and pepper and cook another 2-3 minutes.

– Blend with 1-2 cups stock depending on how thick you want your gravy.

– Simmer for at least 5 minutes

I like to make meatloaf mixture and shape into burger patties… I add them to the gravy and simmer for 15-30 minutes and serve over mash!
