January Recipes

Deliciously Ranch Dip

* 8-oz. Vegannaise (mayonnaise-type dressing found in the refrigerated section
at health food stores)
* Spice Hunter Deliciously Dill seasoning to taste
* Mix the above in a bowl and keep refrigerated. Good with veggies and crackers.

Yogurt Fruit Dip

* 1 cup vanilla yogurt (healthy brand with active cultures and no corn syrup of
any kind!)
* 2 T. sugar free jam or jelly
* Mix the above together in a bowl. Serve with cup up fruit or graham crackers.

Roasted Red Pepper Dip
(makes 1 1/2 cups)

* 1 8 oz jar of roasted red peppers, well drained
* 1 clove garlic
* 8 oz. of low fat or no fat cream cheese
* 8 oz. fresh basil leaves

Blend all together and serve with crackers, pita, or vegetables.

Energy Bites

1 cup peanut butter or almond butter, etc. (preferably
1 tsp. + vanilla
1 cup honey (or a combination of honey and agave nectar is what we used)
1 cup powdered milk (the finer grained like Provident Panry mixes smoother)
2 cups instant rolled oats

Optional: 1 cup coconut, sunflower seeds, sliced almonds, etc.

Mix peanut butter with honey and/or agave syrup and vanilla. Stir in powdered milk and mix well. Add oats and other seeds, nuts, etc as desired. If you use coconut, you can either add coconut now and mix in, or reserve it as a topping. For serving you can either: 1) Roll the dough into balls plain, or roll them in coconut, or 1) Pat the dough into a cake pan, cover it with coconut and pat into dough. Cut into squares and serve. (No cooking). Children and adults both like these. They are a great source of protein, nuts and grains.
