Almond Yumm Yumm

Today I am preparing a menu for an upcoming yoga teacher training I am making food for and in the process, as usual, I got hungry and came up with a little snack to give me an energy boost! Its called Almond Yumm Yumm because its really the only thing I was thinking about as I was making it.

Almond Yumm Yumm

1/2 cup almond butter
3 Tablespoons raw, local honey
2 Tablespoons alcohol-free vanilla
1/4 teaspoon himalayan salt or celtic salt
1 1/2 cups almond meal (I use the pulp leftover from when I make almond milk)
1/4 cup rasins or goji berries, blueberries, cherries, currants, ect...

Stir together the almond butter, honey, vanilla and salt. Add the almond meal, raisins, and mix well.
Drop the dough by the 1 1/2 tablespoons onto a plate. Press into desired shapes or make balls. Place in fridge to firm up. Yumm Yumm!
These will keep for many weeks in the fridge or freezer. Thaw for 5 minutes before eating! 
Makes about 14 cookies (but I ate some dough before I started making them into cookies)

I apologize for not having a picture, Noah took the camera with him skiing.
Just after I got done making my almond yumm yumm's, I stumbles across this You Tube video of Ellen Page. She is such a wonderful advocate for permaculture and the ethical treatment of animals. I hope you have time to take 10 minutes and watch what she has to say about bees.

 There you have it! What do you think about bees? What are some ways that we may be able to stop them from dying off?

Forget finding your place in the world. Decide what kind of place you want your world to be.
