  1. Hey there!

    My name is Kellie and I think I took a class with you at BYWE? Also, you mom is one of my bikram yoga students and a great friend, Anyways, I had a question for you on the banana breakfast cookies. My oven lowest setting is 170. Should I bake for less time than an hour? Also, I don’t have a cheese cloth, nor a nut bag. Can I omit the almond pulp? Will it effect the recipe too much? Would milled flax seed work instead?


    P.s. I whipped up that kale recipe and oh my!! Lovely!! Keep it up! I am not raw, vegan or anything in particular. I just love to eat healthy and wholesome food!!

    • Hi Kellie,

      Yes, I remember you! Hope you’re keeping my mom in check ๐Ÿ˜‰ I don’t identify with any vegan, raw, or anything tribe eitherโ€”I totally agree about wholesome food!

      So, for the recipe! If you want to keep the cookies more raw, or keep more of the nutrients intact you can always prop the oven door a bit open with a wooden spoon to keep the temperature lower – you will just have to check on them every half-hour or so. If raw or low-temp baking doesn’t matter to you, 350 degrees and about 20-30 minutes, more or less should do it.

      No almond pulp would significantly change the recipe (although if you have a soup bag or even a fine strainer you could make almond milk that way! hell, even a new sock would work, ust make sure you use a new one ๐Ÿ˜‰ ). If those options don’t work, the closest thing I can recommend is that you could buy almond meal (ground almonds) or grind up some almonds in a food processor or high speed blender yourself.

      And milled flax seeds would work great! That is actually closer to what I used anyways – I should probably do a better job of specifying that.

      Thanks for reading. Good luck and let me know how your results turn out! ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Hey there stranger!
    I see you are now living on the other side of the world. Slowly getting closer the me and my sheep friends in New Zealand!
    Thought I’d send a message your way and say that you’ve got some great recipes here that really helps your mind and body feel great. Keep up the great work!
    I’ve been getting other great recipes from another Canadian blogger that you may be interested in checking out too. I met one of her friends on my travels and she’s studying holistic nutrition and links all her foods back to schooling. Some delicious recipes there – you may well fall in love with the warm kale salad with sweet tahini dressing! Here’s the link if you feel like perusing it in all your spare time when not planning classes! http://www.thegoodnesslife.com/
    Hope you’re doing great otherwise! And remember to look me up if you travel down to kiwi land. I love having visitors from home!


  3. Thanks Flemm-dawg!! And thanks for sharing that siteโ€”I love her recipes and photos! Will definitely have to make that kale salad when I’m back home.. I’ve bookmarked it ๐Ÿ™‚ She is going to the school I really want to attend… then I will learn a lot more about this kind of stuff.

    We’ve looked at coming to NZ, we were even thinking about it maybe for Christmas but it looks pretty damn expensive which blows, I’d love to come visit and see you and the sheep too! Sure looks like an amazing place to live. Hope you’re enjoying it lady! And thank you for reading ๐Ÿ™‚
