the other day i borrowed a book from the library called raw energy. since my children are always hungry i need snacks that are both healthy and filling (also gluten, dairy and mostly sugar free). gah! it’s been too hot here to turn the oven on any more than necessary, i had/have high hopes for this book. i tried one of the snack recipes yesterday, eli ate one and said, “good, but i don’t want any more” and elsa took one bite scrunched her face and said “uh-uh”. really they weren’t that bad. this mango parfait we had for breakfast also came from that book. it’s super easy and delicious.
gluten free rolled oats
unsweetened finely shredded coconut
milk of choice
prepare the night before.
in a wine or parfait glass add a layer of oats (a couple tbs), then add a layer of shredded coconut and finally a layer of mangoes. repeat. then top with milk of choice just to cover. cover glass and set in the fridge over night.
in the morning when you take it out sprinkle a little cinnamon on top. enjoy!
