Last week when I discussed detoxing, I teased you all with a recipe for a Kale Quinoa salad I came up with! Not only is this salad DE-freakin-LICIOUS, but it has a great mix of ingredients that are perfect for the end of Summer and start of Fall. Plus it’s full of some of those nutrient dense, naturally detoxifying foods that I mentioned!

- 1 cup whole wheat pastry flour (could swap half whole wheat and half white flour)
- 1/4 tsp sea salt
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1 tbsp coconut based buttery spread (could swap for other vegan buttery spread)
- 4 tbsp sunflower seed butter
- 1 ripe banana mashed
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1 1/2 tbsp pure maple syrup
- 1/2 of a dark chocolate bar, chopped
Preheat oven to 350. In a microwave safe bowl, heat sunflower seed butter for 30 seconds to soften it. In same bowl, mash banana, add vanilla, maple syrup, and coconut spread. Mix until evenly combined.
I love a good challenge. Whether it’s trying a new workout, taking on a new job, or going out of my comfort zone…it always gives me a rush of endorphins and a sense of accomplishment for pushing outside of the box.
Coming up with a new recipe is no different! Especially when I am given certain criteria to meet and parameters to fit in!
I don’t know if it’s more shocking that this is my TENTH month participating in Recipe Redux or that it’s already the 21st of another month! This summer is FLYING by….and I don’t like it.
But what I do like, is this month’s theme! And you may actually be surprised that I liked it because it involved an ingredient that I don’t ever use!
