food for extraordinary health!

simple . affordable . delicious

a recipe from Dr. Michelle Jorgenson

I love working with Michelle Jorgenson and her enthusiastic employees as they shift to whole-foods habits on GreenSmoothieGirl Makeover. She makes foods for the whole office to improve their health, as well as her own husband and four children. This week I was filming at her house, and I have to say, I have a great garden, but her garden kicks my garden’s trash!

We swapped tastes of our uber-healthy treats (mine was Almond Joy Fudge in Ch. 4 of 12 Steps). This was her creation that I love!

Dr. Jorgenson’s Power-Through-The-Day Bars

2 C unsweetened shredded coconut

2 C chopped nuts (almonds, pecans, etc, or a combination)

2 C chopped dates (you can buy chopped dates rolled in oat flour inexpensively in bulk at many health food stores in bulk foods)

1/2 C flax seed

1/2 C chia seed

1/2 C raw cocoa, carob or cacao powder

1/4 t Original Himalayan Crystal Salt, or sea salt

1 t vanilla

1 1/2 C mini chocolate chips, naturally sweetened

1 pkg. plain vegan gelatin

1/2 C  hot water

1/2 C raw honey

1/4 t Original Himalayan Crystal Salt, or sea salt

1 t vanilla

Blend the coconut, nuts, dates and flax seeds each separately in a high powered blender until medium fine.  Mix the blended ingredients with the chia seeds, cocoa powder, 1/4 t salt, 1 t vanilla and chocolate chips in a large bowl and set aside.

Dissolve the gelatin in the hot water let stand for five minutes.   Add the honey, salt and vanilla and beat until fluffy (or mix in blender until frothy.)

Add the honey mixture to the mixture in the bowl and stir until everything is moistened.   Press into a 9 x 13 pan with moistened hands.   Refrigerate for 1-2 hours until set.   Cut into bars and keep in a container in the fridge or freezer.
