But my favorite foods of hers were the ones that she just created on her own - no recipe book at all. She'd take a bunch of ingredients, whip them together and voila - something delicious was sure to be served.
The other day, she blew me away again with another one of her creations. I'd given her Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides and she said: "Oh! Let's see what I can do with this!" She's kind of a health nut like me, so she took out the following ingredients and set out to make peppermint chia bites:
1 cup oats
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
3T coconut oil
2T chia seeds
1t vital proteins collagen peptides
2 drops peppermint essential oil
First, you heat the coconut oil and honey over low heat and stir.
Then, when everything is melted together, removed from heat and add the collagen peptides and allow to cool.
Then, add everything else, form into meatball sized bites with wet hands, and put in the fridge for two hours.
My mom would like you to know she isn't crazy about them. They're not sweet enough for her, but I think they're perfect. If you like sweeter things, add some more honey.
