What am I thankful for this week? Hmmm…so much. I want to make a habit of giving God the glory for everything, however small it may seem. This week I finally got on a healthy schedule. I am a terribly habitual night owl, but when I get on a regular early to bed early to rise schedule I feel better, have more energy, and get more done. A recent change in my routine simply will not allow for fatigue, so praise the Lord for the discipline it takes to break a night owl’s habit.
In some of my past posts I have mentioned how incredibly easy it is to throw together a cobbler. As summer officially ends next week (not too happy about that) I decided to close the season with a traditional based peach cobbler recipe. The topping can be used on any fruit or can be eaten on its own.
Keeping a high raw and whole foods lifestyle can seem overwhelming, but with recipes as simple as this one, it does not have to be. If you have presoaked and dehydrated oat groats on hand then you are all set.
1 c oat groats
1 c golden flax
1/4 c olive oil*
1/4 c honey
1/4 t Celtic Sea salt
Grind the oat groats, flax seeds, and salt (I use course ground salt) into a flour. In a mixing bowl combine flour, olive oil, and honey until crumbly.
Cut fresh peaches into cubes, top with cobbler crumble, and enjoy. To take this one step further up the delicious scale add vanilla ice cream. Oh so yum!
Next week: mozzarella and sun-dried tomato pizza.
*If you do not care for olive oil use coconut oil. Although olive oil seems to have a strong flavor it is surprisingly awesome in this recipe and not strong at all. Be sure to always use organic extra virgin cold pressed olive oil in a dark bottle. I’ll explain why in a future post :)
