Here is a REALLY EASY raw recipe that my son enjoys(and I do too!):
Mix raw oats, raw nut butter, and raw honey together (just enough of the moister ingredients to make the mixture clump)- ratios to taste. It's a lot like a no-bake oatmeal cookie.
To win a Gluten-Free cookbook as well as GF oats and oat flour, go to Bob's Red Mill.


  1. Dear Carrie,

    Why are your mushrooms purple? Also, I recently found some mushrooms growing on cow poop. I brewed them in some hot water, and drank a few sips. The next thing I knew, it was 8 hours later and my house was in flames. I was naked, and the police had me in handcuffs. What happened? Do you know of a naturopathic remedy for this?

  2. They aren't purple! The cow poop mushrooms you ate are just making them look that way:)And there's no naturopathic remedy for idiocy that I am aware of:)
