Bomb-Digity Baking Powder Biscuits

These biscuits are THE BEST!  It is a very rare occasion at our house to eat soup without having a few of these along with it.  They are the perfect blend of spices and flavours in a delicious and perfectly chewy baking powder biscuit.  And the best part is, they are super quick and easy to make.  Usually I'm done making them before the oven is even preheated, which in my opinion is a real treat indeed.  So here's how it's done...

First of all, I'd just like to point out that in the pictures I'm using a standard muffin tin, only because it's all I have currently.  I lightly grease my muffin tins to make it easier to turn out the biscuits, but ideally you could use either parchment muffin cups or a silicone muffin pan instead, thus making the biscuits 100% oil free.  I still need to invest in some silicone bakeware and parchment paper muffin cups, so for the moment, I'm still using my old tins.

So, prep your muffin tin, by either greasing it lightly, or lining it with parchment muffin cups, and preheat your oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.

In a medium sized mixing bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, oregano, basil, and salt.  Whisk until combined.

Melt the honey, and combine with the plant milk, whisking until combined.

Pour the wet ingredients over the dry ingredients, and stir to combine.  I know there's a whisk in this picture, but I actually find it easier to use a large spoon at the point instead, as the mixture is quite thick and tends to gum up the whisk.  Spoon the batter evenly into a standard muffin tin, filling all 12 cups.

Bake your biscuits for 15-18 minutes or until the tops are lightly browned.  Remove from the oven.  If you used muffin cups for your biscuits, you can transfer them to a cooling rack right away.  Otherwise, I like to let them sit for a couple of minutes first before transferring them.  You may want to loosen around the edges of each biscuit with a butter knife to help get them out of the tin.

Serve warm with your favourite soup, or try one of my favourites!

Ban-Apple Smoothie

Quick post today to give you this refreshing Banana Apple Green Smoothie recipe!  And...I'm gonna give you the recipe, because how much can you say about a smoothie.  It's yummy, I promise... So I kind of have a process of how I blend my smoothies.  I own a Vitamix, which I love, and I use it multiple times a day.  I add the ingredients in a couple at a time and put it through multiple cycles.  Here's how I do it: Cycle 1: I start by putting the coconut water and the protein powder (if using) in the blender and putting it through a quick cycle.  See this post for protein powders I like. Cycle 2: Next I add the spinach and start a cycle.  Halfway through the spinach cycle, I add in the peeled bananas through the clear section in the top of my lid that pops off. Cycle 3: Once that is all cycled, I add the apples and the ice.  My vitamix has a setting with a snowflake on it, so I switch to that setting when doing anything frozen (ice or frozen fruit for instance).

Coconut-Cashew Tiger Ice Cream

Hope you all are enjoying your summer as much as I am! I have been DYING to write this post for a while now!  I am absolutely loving this ice cream recipe, and I know that it'll be a hit at your house too.  I have always been a fan of Tiger ice cream, and when we went plant based and dairy-free, I wasn't about to accept the fact that I might never taste it again.  I have been experimenting for a while now, doing a load of researching and looking for natural food dyes and gut health helpers, as well as ratios of flavours etc.  After lots of experimenting, the results are better than I would have expected!  The black liquorice ice cream is coloured with food grade, activated charcoal , which is great for gut health, and the orange ice cream is coloured with both sweet potato and a bit of turmeric to add not just colour, but also anti-inflammatory benefits and a little extra hidden goodness!  I can now honestly say, this one is a gooder!  I will even be bold enough to tell you

"Glory Sauce" (Modified)

BEST SAUCE EVER!!! This sauce is not my original recipe, but I am a HUGE fan of Glory Sauce .  The only problem is, in its original form, it's an oil-based dressing (which most dressings are)...and I don't eat oil.  So...I "healthified" it, and honestly, I like it even better this way, which I didn't think was possible.  The original recipe is served at the Fresh Tracks Cafe, at the White Water Ski Resort in Nelson, BC, Canada, and can be found in their Whitewater Cooks cookbook, which is full of amazingly yummy recipes.  Anyways, I replaced the refined oil content of this recipe with some creamy, natural oils, and the results are pretty amazing!  It's the most versatile sauce ever, fantastic drizzled on pretty much everything.  I eat it over rice bowls, salads, Asian dishes, and I even drizzle it over baked potatoes.  So here it is... First off, I use this Braggs' brand Natural Soy Sauce Alternative rather than actual soy sauce.  It's a g
