black bean brownie.

These were really tasty, but I am going to try them with dried beans rather than 
canned beans next time in hopes of dulling the bean flavor even more.

avocado mint chocolate chip ice cream.

"everything" granola.

This may be my best invention yet. I've had a hankering for a healthier, cheaper granola than what I can find in the store, so I looked up recipes for making my own version. The only problem was that I liked ALL of the ingredients listed in ALL of the recipes. Also, I wanted to find a way to sweeten the granola without added sugars. And thus, it was born.

"Everything" Granola
 This granola is extremely versatile and depends on what you have on hand. 
You can use any or all of the listed ingredients in the quantity you choose. 
The starred items are the most essential for a granola-like taste.
Try experimenting with various combinations to get a recipe you like.
Nuts*/Seeds (almonds, walnuts, sesame, flax, pumpkin, hazelnut)
Shredded Coconut
Cinnamon*, Nutmeg, Ginger
Coconut Oil* (or canola)
Cocoa (optional)
Pureed Fruit* (banana, apple, nectarine, peach, pumpkin)
Additional Grains (quinoa, millet, wheat bran/germ)
Vanilla*/Almond Extract
Honey/Molasses/Maple Syrup (optional for additional sweetness)
Dehydrated Fruit* (apple, nectarine, peach, banana, strawberry)
Nut Butter (almond, peanut, cashew--make your own by soaking and then pureeing the nuts)

Spread in clumps on a baking sheet. Bake at 325°F for about 20 minutes or until golden brown, turning the mixture halfway through.

Splash on some soymilk and enjoy as a breakfast cereal.
