Apple Cinnamon CBD bites

I recently started using CBD oil and I am such a fan. People always ask me "how does it make you feel?", the only way I can really explain it is that its like a big deep breath in a bottle! Does it make you stoned? NO! It just helps take the edge off. Really, that's just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to all of the benefits but we will get into that another day.

I typically add the oil to my morning cup of coffee or smoothie but I've been looking for new ways to incorporate it and these Apple Cinnamon CBD bites are such a fun little snack. I pack a couple each day and enjoy them for a mid morning bite or an afternoon pick me up!

Apple Cinnamon CBD Bites -
1 Cup Old Fashioned Oats
1/8 Cup Ground Flaxseed
1/2 Teaspoon Cinnamon
1/4 Cup Almond Butter
1/8 Cup Honey
1 Pinch of Salt
1/2 Cup Grated Green Apple
2 Full Droppers of CBD oil

Mix all ingredients together. Form small (golf ball sized) balls. Don't roll the mixture in your hands or it will fall apart. Press the mixture together to form the balls. Place on a lined cookie sheet and refrigerate for 30 min. Store in the refrigerator.

Baby's First Bite

One of the things that I have been most excited about since finding out I was pregnant is making baby food/kid friendly meals! Its like a whole new world and I am fully embracing it!

Lincoln just started eating purees so the recipes are a little boring at this point since we are currently giving her mostly just green and orange veggies. I decided to add in apples in this puree and she is loving it!

Purees can be messy but I know that someday I am going to miss this mess so for now I am taking deep breaths and enjoying every bubble that she blows with a mouth full of carrots! Here are some items that we are currently loving for baby food making and dinner time.

I am loving these tiny ball jars for baby food! They are great for spices and organizing small trinkets too!

This silicone bib was just too cute, we had to have it. Plus it is the easiest bib I have found to clean so far and the food does not stain it!

This Bumbo seat is saving our lives. It is small enough to store out of sight when we aren't using it and is perfect for sitting on top of the table or counter top! The tray keeps the mess from getting all over!

Banana Muffins (Sugar Free, Dairy Free)

Who doesn't love a good muffin? I will tell you that I typically don't love the ingredients though. Now that Lincoln is getting bigger and we will soon be introducing more foods into her diet, I am on a mission to make some of our traditional recipes healthier. I have a feeling these Banana Muffins might just be her favorite someday!

Banana Muffins-

3 bananas
1/4 Cup Honey
1/3 Cup Coconut Oil (melted)
1/3 Cup Unsweetened Applesauce
1 Egg
1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
2 Cups Flour
1 Teaspoon Baking Soda
1 Teaspoon Cinnamon
1/2 Teaspoon Salt
1/2 Teaspoon Nutmeg
1/2 Cup Walnuts

Crispy Artichoke Hearts w/ Chipolte Aioli (Whole30)

Artichokes are really having a moment in my house right now. I love love love them but can I be honest... I don't love making the whole artichoke and dealing with the mess of cleaning them. I was determined to find an easier way to enjoy these little gems and these Crispy Artichoke hearts fill my heart with joy! They are so easy to make and they are a great on their own as a snack/appetizer or as a topping for your salad. The options are endless!

Crispy Artichoke Hearts w/ Chipotle Aioli-

1 Bag Frozen Artichoke Hearts
2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
Salt and Pepper

Pre-heat oven to 425 degrees. Toss artichokes in olive oil and salt and pepper. Place on a cookie sheet and bake for 45 min.

Chipotle Aioli-

1 Egg Room Temp (this is v important)
1 Cup Avocado Oil
1 or 2 Chipotle Peppers
1 Splash Red Wine Vinegar
1 Teaspoon Mustard Powder
Juice of 1/2 a Lemon

Put all ingredients in a tall mason jar (make sure that mouth of the jar is large enough for your immersion blender to fit). Put the immersion blender directly over the egg yolk. Turn immersion blender on and slowly lift it up. The liquid will quickly change consistency and become aioli.
