Cooking with Oils

(Fairly) Healthy Apple Crisp

Even when its still warm in October here, we want to have the sights and smells of fall. Hence an Apple Crisp. It’s a staple for fall desserts and it’s an easy to dessert to create in a more healthy way. Here is my version:

Apple Crisp Recipe

Filling
4 cups chopped apples (can be peeled but I left the peels on for mine)
3 drops Young Living Citrus Fresh Vitality Essential Oil Blend

Stir the Essential Oil Blend into the apples. It will keep them from browning too. Pour apple mixture into a baking dish. Butter the dish if you would like to but its not necessary.

Topping
1 cup Young Living Einkorn Granola
1/2 cup Almond Meal
1/2 cup Oats
1/2 cup Coconut Sugar
1/3 Coconut Oil
4 Drops Cinnamon Bark Vitality Essential Oil

Mix all the dry ingredients together in a large bowl. Add the Essential Oil and blend well. Pour the mixture over the top of the apples. Bake at 375 for 30 minutes. Enjoy!

Make Your Own – Almond Butter

This is a throwback post from 2 kitchens ago but its such an easy and healthy thing to make it is worth repeating!

If you have ever priced or purchased Almond Butter at the market then you will know how expensive it is. Well, if you have the supplies pictured above you can make your own for less and control the ingredients included (think sugar)! I did not attempt this without any guidance. I found this great recipe and tutorial at Katie’s blog Dishin’ and Dishes. She goes through the steps with great pictures so that I could make sure that what I was doing was right. It seems like your food processor will go on forever but just be patient, the almonds WILL turn into butter. A great addition to the almonds is Cinnamon Bark essential oil – you only need a drop or 2! (Here’s the kind I use.)

Peppermint Everyday!

I cannot say enough good things about Peppermint Oil. I use it daily. It is uplifting, it clears out my sinuses, has a cooling effect on stiff muscles and tensioned heads, and just generally smells amazing. I also add a few drops when I’m making brownies for chocolate-minty goodness. How do you use Peppermint Oil?
