Recipe: Easy Peach Cobbler (Gluten & Dairy-Free, Low-Carb)

by Pretty Pies Healthy Desserts


One of the things I majorly LOVE about this cobbler is how EASY it is. It takes very little prep time (and no soaking/chilling/WAITING oh-so-patiently like my FAV recipes, vegan cheesecakes. <– worth it though)

Got all the ingredients? You are GOOD TO GO. It’s a spur-of-the-moment and failure to plan people’s ideal recipe, haha.

1. First, grease your dish, and throw in some sliced peaches. Note – we are NOT peeling the peaches, because to me, it’s not worth the extra hassle. I happen to love the peels. It adds just a little bit more bite, instead of having some goldfish swimming around under there. Noooo. Toss the peaches in cinnamon, sweetener and starch (to make it saucy).

2. Next, prepare the topping. You’ll need some flax “egg” to help it hold together, so it’s not just a pile of crumbs. (Flax egg is just ground flaxseed and water that gels together. I know it sounds weird lol.)

Then mix together the all the topping ingredients and spread them on top of the peaches. (We’re using almond flour to make this Gluten & Grain-FREE. Yasss, my body thanks me for that.)

Throw it in the oven and wait for your home to fill with the aroma of sizzling peaches! Mmmmm.

Absolut Honey – Alive 11oz squares


“Deliciousness itself,” as Mark Twain said about cherimoya. For culinary adventurers who demand the ultimate in aliveness. An elegant natural confection. We are delighted to say that Absolut Honey is back. This is honeycomb filled with honey just as the bees made it. A single cell of honeycomb is filled with the concentrated nectar of innumerable flowers. What could be more alive?

The bees are cared for with loving devotion by Walt Broughton and his sons Abram, Luke and Jeb. Together they have in excess of ten decades of being with the bees.

Honeycomb is completely edible. Many aver that honey tastes especially alive when eaten straight from the comb. It is chewy, pleasantly sweet,fresh and vital. The wax cells of honeycomb are both edible and beneficial because they contain natural vitamin A as well as roughage. For an ecstatic taste spread on a slice of apple that has first been spread with a layer of tahini or almond butter. With cheeses, fruit, and edible flowers it is a gorgeous and delicious spread.

“Preppers” and “survivalists” please note:- the shelf life of honey is 4000 years.

A sonata with with high notes of floral and fruit.

Lehua Honey is becoming one of the rarest on Earth. It is recognized for its unique quality, taste and connection to the islands of Hawaii. The Lehua is the official flower of Hawaii. It is sad that the Ohia Lehua tree is facing the threat of extinction.

Our Ohia Lehua Honey is gathered by a family devoted to beekeeping.

Boiled Frogs and the Pesticide Time Bomb


(Mercola) Corn and soybean seeds colored red and blue, respectively, have become an all-too-common sight on U.S. farms. The seeds are given a colorful hue because they’ve been treated with neonicotinoid pesticides, and the coloring is one of the only ways to tell them apart from their untreated, yellow counterparts. In 2018, nearly every field corn seed sown in the U.S. contained the insecticides, along with about half of soybeans and most of the cotton.1

(For clarification, there are three kinds of corn: field, sweet and popcorn. Popcorn is never genetically modified, 2 although some brands may include GMO Ingredients, for example, if you purchase preflavored bags. Sweet corn is that tasty corn you eat right on the cob every summer, and it’s moist when it’s harvested,3 unlike field corn, which is left on the stalk longer so it can dry out in preparation for processing. Field corn is then used to make processed food products and animal feed.)

According to John Tooker, associate professor of entomology at Pennsylvania State University, “ … [T]hese insecticides will be used across at least 150 million acres of (field corn) cropland, an area about the size of Texas.”4

While some attention has been given to neonicotinoids’ potential role in bee decline, Tooker believes the chemicals are having an even greater pernicious influence on insects, such that entire ecosystems could be in jeopardy. What’s more, neonicotinoids are only one type of agricultural chemical that’s being used in excess while the environmental consequences begin to unfold all-around us.
