A crunchy, lightly sweet, delicious HEALTHY BITE! Yea baby! In fact, the texture reminds me of a Krinkle bar, crunchy on the inside, creamy on the outside. Can you handle that?
This combo was so good I shared them with only a few of my favorite people and then ate the rest within a few days. They are ALL gone, which means I need to make more stat! I’m okay with that, it seems to be a good problem, ya know?
1 cup unshelled pistachios
1/2 cup unsweetened coconut
1/4 to 1/3 cup coconut flour
1/2 heaping cup of cocoa powder or chocolate protein if you don’t have cocoa
1/3 cup almond butter (or nut butter of choice)
1/3 cup honey
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
optional add in -1/2 tsp coconut extract for extra coconut taste
The Teff grain used to make this flour is grown in Junction City, Oregon on Hunton’s Farm. They are a third generation family farm in the Willamette Valley.
Teff is a tiny whole grain best known as an ingredient in injera, a traditional Ethiopian spongy sour flatbread on which salad and stews are served. Injera is made with fermented Teff Flour, often in combination with wheat. Teff flour can also be used to make pancakes, as a substitute for part of the flour in baked goods and breads, and as a thickener for soups, stews, gravies, and puddings.
Brown Teff Flour has a taste reminiscent of hazelnut, with a hint of chocolate. Our Teff Flour is stone-ground at Camas Country Mill in Eugene. The mill also grinds other grains, so this flour is not guaranteed gluten free.

Important tips for organizing your emergency food supply
(Natural News) Stockpiling food and water in a small home or apartment can be quite difficult at times, but not if you know how to properly organize. Last month, SmartPrepperGear.com published an article on this very topic, and provided preppers with some incredibly helpful advice regarding how to efficiently organize their emergency food supply.
First and foremost, it’s important to understand that it simply isn’t possible to build an endless food supply. You can potentially stockpile a lot of food and water depending on the size of your home, but even then, your space will eventually run out. That is why it’s necessary to put a plan together and figure out how much food you really need in your emergency food supply.
As SmartPrepperGear.com put it, “In order to determine how much that you need you have to determine the threats you are preparing for. Not all of us are preparing for the same threats. At least, we shouldn’t be. If you are trying to prepare for every threat known to man you will end up only being partially prepared in all areas instead of fully prepared in the important areas.”
(GoldTelegraph.com) A study released by GoBankingRates reveals that older people planning their retirement have cause for concern. Forty-two percent of Americans are facing their golden years with less than $10,000 in savings. A lack of savings and planning has reduced what should be an enjoyable time in seniors’ lives to a period of stress and worries for many.
Out-of-pocket expenses for health care is spiraling. The Bureau of Labor Statistics indicates that Americans 65 years of age and older may spend up to $46,000 annually on healthcare. This is not good news for those with only $10,000 on which to fall back on.
For adults over 50, this should be a call to act now, while there is still time. Only one-third of adults in that age group have savings greater than $10,000. Retirement planning needs to become a priority, as there is little time to waste. Pensions are becoming rarer, and Social Security is becoming less secure than it used to be. Many health needs of seniors are not covered by Medicare. Some experts believe the Social Security system will be depleted by 2030. Adults over the age of 50 need to consider making contributions into 401(k) accounts or similar retirement plans.
