Natural Organic gluten free Sesame & pumpkin seeds snack delicacy


Naturalpumpkin-sesame-seeds-delicacy-2017-2-1

This recipe is even easier than the last one I just posted.
No nuts to crack open.
In my twenty plus years in macrobiotic I was taught that sesame seeds give more calcium to the body than milk considering that milk gives but takes a lot away in the process, & pumpkin cleans out the liver.
This might give you the extra incentive to try out these recipes considering it’s a perfect alternative to the ready made junk we all use today.

Enjoy it! Let me know, I’d very much appreciate the feedback:)

Ingredients.
———–

1. 2 Tbsp. Organic whole sesame seeds (you can use the regular white one too)
2. 1 Tbsp. Organic rice syrup (honey or any other sweetener)
3. 1 Tbsp. fresh organic ginger juice (that’s optional. I don’t always have the patience to grate & squeeze out the juice but I like the sharp edge it gives to it)

Well, it’s been a long time since the last recipe post!
If you are familiar with my natural recipes category, I enjoy most the easiest & fastest. This one is no exception.
It might take up to five minutes it is eaten raw with no electrical appliance needed.
Its taste is a reminder of the Nutella spread but crunchier & fresher.

Natural creamy toothpaste fast & easy recipe

©copyright2014owpp

Since I started to make two years ago my own clean & organic toothpaste I look on the regular one as soap which might seem weird to some but I imagine it is a matter of habit & this has become mine.
I’ve wanted to give you the recipe for quite a while but I had a lot left and no photos from the last batch.

It seems providence decided otherwise when the jar broke 😉 so here goes the recipe…

Ingredients
———-

1. 6 Tbsp. (heaped) organic Arrowroot or rice flour (cheaper)
2. 5 tsp. Baking soda
3. 4 tsp. (flat) organic virgin Coconut oil or Shea butter if that’s what you have at home, it’s cheaper too (I quote Wikipedia “In some African countries such as Benin, Shea butter is used for cooking oil”)
4. 1/2 to 1 tsp. peppermint oil (I like it strongly flavored so I put 42 drops)
5. 6 Tbsp. Glycerin

Method
——

1. Put all the ingredients in a small bowl, mix until smooth
2. Put in a clean glass or plastic container & label it with date (in my experience it never got bad)

Let me know if you try it I would love to know about it!

Dried fruit cake or muffins/multi-user-dough/Quick & easy/100% Natural & wholemeal if desired


©copyright2013owpp

©copyright2013owpp

Hi everyone!

I am this time, using my old computer as this file is still in it. Until I get used to my Window8 I hope you’ll bear with me. I feel as if I’m stagnating but in fact, I am learning everyday new functions.
It is a challenge. One side of me wants to get back to the easy Window7 habits yet, another doesn’t feel like giving in so easily. So, it’ll take time but I will be glad to post again on a regular basis as soon as I’m comfortable with it.
Meanwhile, I am posting my Multi-user dough recipe which I had posted previously under the apple cake/quick & easy/100% Natural saying then, the dough could literally change into any cake one fancies. So, I am showing you how it could be used as a dried fruit cake or muffin.

In my last post I wrote…

On this beautiful Sunday morning I would like to give you a very easy apple cake recipe with a dough that could be used for anything your imagination fancies, from sugarless jam layers, to chocolate ( carob powder for the cocoa sensitive ) or plain lemon, vanilla, rum, coffee, orange, almonds, from real or essence flavors, raisins, or raisins and dried fruits as Mango with pineapple and cranberry if you like, which will make it into a English fruit cake! Just use your creative side and innovate! Have fun while exploring, it’s the best way to have good results!

For the Gluten sensitive, there are countries where you can find specific flowers for that purpose, inquire at your local nature shop.
Enjoy and let me know!

Sugarless dried fruit cake

Dough
———

Ingredients

—————

1. 2 1/2 cup 80% white Spelt flour ( Same rule as before, same cup throughout. Any flower you wish if your habits and availabilities are different. It could be wholemeal too. )

2. 1 pinch of salt ( Best from a nature shop but not indispensable )

3. 2 tsp ( Dessert spoon ) Baking powder

4. 1 pinch Baking soda

5. 1/2 cup oil ( As I mentioned before, I use extra virgin olive oil and the taste goes away in the baking or cooking but, anything is good )

6. 1 cup of rice syrup ( Honey, Golden syrup or any natural sweetener )

7. 1 cup of Soda water or sparkling water if you want.

8. 62 gr Dried pineapple cubes, 62 gr Dried mango or papaya, 62 gr Dried raisins = 2.18 oz each ( you can buy them sugarless in a nature shop).

Method

———-

Put all the dried ingredients in your bowl, mix by hand for a second, then add the liquids and turn on your electric mixer for about 4-7 mn (if the dough is not thoroughly mixed the fruits will fall at the bottom in the oven) , the ingredients are likely to stick at the bottom of the bowl too, after, so, before pouring into the tin, mix by hand once or twice.

I’m giving you all these minor details as they tend to be annoying to have to discover on the spot 🙂

Take a baking tin ( I happened to have a 5 cm =2 inches deep, 23 cm = 9.05 inches wide and 32 cm = 12.59 long, and fitted perfectly for the recipe multiplied by 4 as I wanted 3 big loaves ) but anything will do in a loaf shape, don’t be afraid to experiment, even if it’s not perfect at the first try, what a sense of victory when it comes out just right!

Put a baking paper sheet in it, pour your batter in, slide in the oven on 150 degrees Celsius = 302 degrees Fahrenheit, for one hour to one and a quarter. I nevertheless enjoy ” checking ” on it and poke it once with a match or barbecue stainless steal stick to see. If it’s still raw it’ll stick to it. For the muffins it will take only 20-30 mn with a preheated oven. This recipe will give you one small ” loaf ” double the recipe for more.
Serve it warm or cold, it is neater to cut if it’s frozen beforehand but then it is not as fresh, whatever…they’ll bless you for it!

Let me know your opinion about the white and wholemeal version if you’ve tried them both, I am curious 🙂

100% Natural easy white or wholemeal Spelt flour doughnut recipe!


©copyright2013owpp

©copyright2013owpp

This is a very easy recipe for doughnuts which my kids love in the cozy winter weekends.
It is totally natural. The photos are with white Spelt flour but I did it in wholemeal
and they confessed preferring it, which is not an easy thing for them to do 🙂

The recipe is the same one as the chocolate roll I previously posted, so I put it back in
this one.

Enjoy and let me know if you tried it out!

This recipe is not one of my easiest ( I had to let the dough rise ) but it’s nourishing, it’s a good
unsweetened chocolate roll for recess at school or at work. All in all, I’d say it’s
a recipe worth doing every once in a while.
I use the bread machine on dough program, to mix it and let it rise. It’s quicker, but you can do it
the ” longer “Way the only difference with the machine is, that it requires dried yeast.

Enjoy the experience!

Ingredients
———–

1. 325 ml = 10.9 u.s oz Water
2. 3 Eggs, it can be left out for the egg sensitive
3. 800 gm = 1.764 lb Spelt flour ( or any other )
4. 4 tbsp olive or sesame oil ( any other is good too )
5. 4 tbsp rice malt ( honey or any other natural sweetener, or 3 tbsp sugar )
6. 2 tsp salt
7. 2 1/4 tsp dried yeast ( or fresh but then you have to prepare it with a few grain of sugar and luke warm water )

Method
——

1.Take the risen dough roll it out.

2.Use a cup to cut out the doughnut shape.
3.Use a bottle top to make a whole in the middle
if you desire that shape.
I do some with and some without.
4.Fry it in a little pan with about 6/7 cm = 2.3 or 2.7 inches,
olive oil or any other kind on a small fire.
Do not leave the oil too long on high ( the first one still goes )
even with a small fire as
it will brown too quickly and leave it raw inside.
5.Pour rice syrup on top, honey, unsweetened jam which you can put in by making
a small hole in the fried doughnut without a hole, or any other sweetener on the
doughnut and enjoy it.

For the ones who use sugar you can sprinkle icing sugar on top it makes it look very
decorative.
For the calorie counters, there is a possibility to put it in the oven and
bake. It is not the same taste but it is still delicious!

But mainly use your imagination and do what you fancy doing 🙂
