Engine 2 No-Oil Pizza Crust is DELICIOUS!

 Engine 2 has come out with various products over the years & these Pizza Crusts are top notch!  I wish they were organic, but at least there is no added oils!  They bake up crisp and have a wonderful texture.

For pizza sauce I use Tomato Puree in a glass bottle & heat it on the stove to reduce it with lots of various dried chili peppers & paprika plus some white pepper.  Load on the veggies, this was all from my garden!  Cherry Tomatos, basil, jalapeno & orange pepper.  Best part about California is growing stuff year round!

The Healthiest Grilled Cheese Ever

Was one of those days when I only had frozen sweet potato & slice of lavash bread in the fridge & raided my garden for fresh herbs & an onion and tossed together this pretty stellar sandwich!

Skinny Vegan Trail Mix Granola Bars

The energy bar selection anywhere on the plant is diseased with fat, supplements & copious amounts of isolated proteins.  Its so bizarre when the only foods that ACTUALLY fuel muscle for an endurance event are starches, which break down into glycogen.  These Trail Mix Granola Oat Bars work wonderful for long bike rides & hikes and can be made into cookie shapes, too!  

Ingredients

  • ½ cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla
  • 2 tablespoons PB2
  • 3 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 2 cups old fashioned oats
  • ½ cup oat flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt (optional)
  • 2 tablespoons chopped dried cranberries
  • 1 tablespoon chopped dairy free chocolate chips
  • 1 tablespoon chopped pecans
  • 2 tablespoons almond milk

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 350ºF.
  • Prepare a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  • Mix applesauce, vanilla, almond milk, maple syrup into a creamy consistency in a large bowl.
  • In another bowl, combine oats, flour, baking powder and salt.
  • Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and stir until they are well combined; the batter should be slightly sticky.
  • Fold in the chocolate chips, nuts & cranberries.
  • Place bar-sized servings of the batter onto a parchment paper baking sheet.
  • Bake for 15-18 minutes.
  • Cool & store in airtight container.
