You may have heard me saying how we're getting ready for a road trip. We are so excited. Most of Andy's family lives near the Adirondack mountains of upstate New York, and they have a family cabin on Lake George. Andy, Zoe, Ashley, our dog, Cherry, and I are driving to the cabin on the lake. Eeek! I can't wait to show you pictures.
For the drive I made my best yogurt recipe, which is chilling now. I know I'm obsessed with it ;-) I got this great cooler that is just the right size to fit on the floor behind the console. Also I wanted to make some Chai Granola for munching on in the car. It came out great. The applesauce and the chia meal created these lovely little clusters :-)
Soak 4 cups of nuts for about 8 hours (I used walnuts in the photo above)
Rinse and strain.
Add to a bowl with:
1 cup shredded unsweetened coconut
1/2 cup almond meal flour
1 cup applesauce with no added sugar
20 drops of vanilla liquid stevia
1/4 cup coconut sugar
In a separate bowl mix:
2 tsp cardamom
2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp ginger
1/2 tsp sea salt
Combine the two bowls.
Dehydrate at 115 degrees overnight, or until it's dry and crunchy.
We'll be driving for days before we get there. Hopefully there will be some fun stuff to post as we drive East, and I'll definitely be posting from the lake when we get there! :-)
