Triple Chocolate Gingerbread BarsOh, the weather outside is frightful…actually, it really is, although I am sure different from the originally intended lyrics. We have been having a heat wave in So Cal and there have been earth tremors and extreme fire dangers. With all this, I find myself increasingly prayerful…yet not anxious. Peace that passes all human understanding comes from only one place…knowing that God, at the same time, is both completely good and completely sovereign.While that truth wraps around me like a warm blanket, I have a holiday bar recipe that is not for the faint of heart. It is a deep, rich, dark chocolate gingerbread bar for those who are not afraid of the darker side of chocolate. This would be a great treat to share with friends as a little goes a long way. Ingredients4 flax eggs (4 T ground flax soaked in 1/2 cup warm water for 15 minutes)1/2 cup almond butter1/4 cup almond flour2 scoops chocolate pea-based protein powder (like @Nuzest Rich Chocolate Clean Lean Protein)3 pitted dates1 tablespoon blackstrap molasses5 teaspoons ground ginger (or 5 cubes Dorot frozen ginger)1 tablespoon alcohol free vanilla1 tablespoon cinnamon1/2 teaspoon baking soda1/4 teaspoon salt1/2 cup chocolate chips (I used Pascha 100% cacao chips), plus 1/3 cup for toppingCacoa nibsMethod1. Make flax egg. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.2. Add all ingredients, minus chips and nibs, to a food processor and process until well incorporated. Add 1/2 cup chocolate chips and combine well.3. Spread into an 8×8 baking dish lined with parchment. Bake 30 minutes4. Remove from oven and sprinkle 1/3 cup chips over top. Let melt and spread once chips become shiny. Sprinkle with nibs. Let cool on counter for 20 minutes.5. Place in freezer for 15 minutes for topping to harden. Keep left-overs in refrigerator for up to three days. …for more recipes like this and articles on life, swing by www.stewardchicks.com

Homemade Non-Dairy Almond YogurtRecently, when raving to my friends about the cashew based yogurt on my feed, some mournfully told me that they could not eat cashews. But, they could eat almonds. Hmmm…what about almond based yogurt?? So, I gave it a try. Same recipe as with the cashews, just sub almonds and add a bit more water. Results…honestly, I like the creaminess of the cashew better…but, if that is not an option, then this almond based option is pretty great! Mine turned tart after just 24 hours, so you can let sit longer or shorter depending on your taste preference. There was a bit of grittiness from the pulp of the almonds, but that was not a deal breaker by any means…especially when you get creative with toppings! Ingredients:1 cup raw almonds (soaked overnight in refrigerator)1 pitted date (may be optional for those on low sugar diet…if you try, let me know!)1 1/2 cups cold water1 scoop vanilla pea based protein powder (like @Nuzest Smooth Vanilla Clean Lean Protein)2 probiotic capsules (I use Renew Life probiotics with 25 billion live cultures)MethodRemove almonds from refrigerator and drain. Pinch almonds between your fingers and slide off the skin. Place almonds and remaining ingredients In a high powered blender (like @vitamix). Add protein powder. Blend on high until completely smooth. Pour into a plastic or glass container. Add powder from probiotic capsules and stir to incorporate with a non-metal spoon. Cover with cheesecloth or a light dishtowel. Let sit on countertop for 24 hours, stirring every 12 hours. Once time has elapsed, refrigerate for at least 4 hours or overnight. Per taste preference, add vanilla and coconut nectar (or sweetener of choosing), and top with fruit and nuts. Store leftovers in the refrigerator for up two two days. …for more recipes like this and articles on life, swing by www.stewardchicks.com

Nammie's Butterscotch PuddingRecently, my MIL had surgery and her recovery involved clear liquids for a few days followed by soft foods. She requested the mint chocolate pudding (see earlier on my feed), but I knew after that was gone, she would want some flavor variety. This nutrient dense pudding was designed especially for her. Packing clean ingredients and muscle supporting protein (something you don’t usually see in pudding), this pudding has a secret ingredient. You might not ever guess it. It’s not a veggie. It’s not a root. It's something you can’t buy. Still can’t think of the secret ingredient that makes this pudding so amazingly delicious? Well, I’ll have to spill the beans…it’s chocked full of love. Ingredients4 pitted dates1/4 cup cashews (or cashew butter)3/4 cup coconut milk, full fat1/2 cup coconut oil, melted (like @anthonysgoods)1 scoop vanilla pea based protein powder (like @Nuzest_usa Smooth Vanilla Clean Lean Protein)1/4 cup lucuma powder1 teaspoon alcohol free vanillaPinch of saltMethodAdd first 4 ingredients to a high speed blender (like @vitamix). Process until smooth. Add remaining ingredients and process again until smooth. Pour into individual serving size dishes and refrigerate for at least 4 hours or overnight. If desired, sprinkle with chopped cacao wafers. Store left overs in the refrigerator for up to three days. …for more recipes like this and articles on life, please swing by www.stewardchicks.com#dairyfree #glutenfree #veganfood #plantbaseddiet #plantbasedfood #plantbasedvegan #vegetarian #healthyeating #cleaneats #anthonysgoods #dessert #desserts #nuzest_usa #thenewhealthy #sugarfree #foodisfuel #eatrealfood #healthyrecipes #veganfoodlovers #healthyfoodshare#bestofvegan #whatveganseat #eatvegan #vitamix #getinmybelly #realfood #goodmoodfood #eatpretty #functionalfood #refinedsugarfree

Best Ever Dairy Free YogurtSo…a while back on my feed, I posted a cashew based yogurt recipe that I had found at @cleaneatingmag. My dear friend @haleygoesvegan, adapted the recipe…which you can find on her feed. I took her adaptations and added a few more of my own…and after all that adapting…finally found the PERFECT yogurt! Not only is it protein strong, but it’s flavor and thickness is on point. This is a must make for everyone…even dairy lovers will be wonderfully satisfied! Ingredients:1 cup raw cashews1 pitted date1 cup cold water1 scoop vanilla pea based protein powder (like @Nuzest Smooth Vanilla Clean Lean Protein)2 probiotic capsules (I use Renew Life probiotics with 25 billion live cultures)1 teaspoon alcohol free vanilla, optionalMethodIn a high powered blender (like @vitamix) soak cashews and dates in one cup of cold water at least one hour.

Cauli-Mash and Blender GravyI love finding easy ways to make comfort foods more nutritious. Potatoes and cream based gravy are subbed out in mere minutes for steamed cauliflower with nut and broth based gravy. Secret flavor boost is the vegetarian, no-chicken broth! It’s great stuff.
