EGGLESS ALMOND FLOUR BREAD
2 1/2 cups almond flour
1/2 cup of pear sauce (roughly 2 pears)
1/4 to 1/3 cup coconut oil (melted)
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
Preheat oven to 300F. In a bowl mix baking soda, salt and flour. Add pear sauce and coconut oil. Mix until it takes on a "butter-like" consistency.
Spread some coconut oil all around the bottom of an 8"x 8" baking dish. Sprinkle a little almond flour on the bottom.
Spread mixture into pan and smooth it out.
Bake 30 minutes.
When cooled it can be cut into squares or triangles if desired. This will keep in the fridge covered for 1 week.
Variations: In place of the pear sauce, use pureed acorn squash and a little cinnamon OR pureed carrots and a little cinnamon. You can also add vanilla, honey and nuts.

Brown Rice tortilla chips w/ Guacamole
2 food for life brown rice tortillas
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp lime
1/4 tsp celitc sea salt
Mix olive oil lime and salt. Cut tortillas into triangles. Brush one side of the tortillas with the mixture and bake for 5 to7 minutes then flip brush and bake again for 5 to 7 minutes. The longrer you leave them in the oven the browner and crispier they will get. Try adding chili to the lime, salt and olive oil mixture for a little heat!
1 ripe avocado
1 tbsp olive oil
1/2 tbsp to 1 tbsp lemon
1/4 tsp cayenne (smoked paprika is nice too)
1 clove garlic
1/4 tsp salt
pepper to taste
Mix all ingredients with a fork if you like chunky guacamole or in a blender if you like smooth. Place in a container with the pit to prevent brrowning. Serve with chips. You can also add a diced tomato and some red onion to add more chunkiness. I love olive oil in this recipe the guacamole gets so creamy.
