Sophie's Superfood Sugar Cookie Recipe

I love including my kids in my culinary adventures! It gives us the opportunity to connect, learn, and be creative together, and when we’re making my favorite holiday sugar cookies, it also allows us to spend time celebrating the holidays together! Decorating sugar cookies as a family is so much fun, and so is eating our delicious, freshly made treats. With all of the wholesome ingredients in these gluten-free, dairy-free, and superfood-packed cookies, I don’t even worry about how many my little cookie monsters are having. The Manuka honey in the frosting is naturally anti-bacterial, which helps ward of those winter colds, and the healthy fats in the almond flour and coconut oil are heart-healthy. A tablespoon of each of my Philosophie Superfood + Protein Blends adds 10g of muscle-building protein, as well as dose of some of the world’s most healing foods. We make them in three different flavors, Green Dream, Berry Bliss, and Cacao Magic, add frosting and decorative toppings, and then enjoy!

  

Gather This:

 

For the cookies:

 

For the frosting:

  • 4 tablespoons coconut oil, softened
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract
  • ½ teaspoon of Himalayan Pink salt
  • 1 1/3 tablespoons of Greenbee Manuka Honey
  • 1 1/3 tablespoons of Berrybee Manuka Honey
  • 1 1/3 tablespoons of Cacaobee Manuka Honey
  • 1 teaspoon Green Dream Superfood + Protein Blend
  • 1 teaspoon of Berry Bliss Superfood + Protein Blend
  • 1 teaspoon of Cacao Magic Superfood + Protein Blend
  • red and green food coloring (optional) 

 

Do This:

  1. Preheat oven to 350F.
  2. In a medium bowl, mix together almond flour, coconut oil, honey, vanilla, and salt. The batter should be thick and creamy.
  3. Separate the batter into thirds and place in three separate medium mixing bowls.
  4. Add one tablespoon of each of the superfood powders to each mixing bowl by sprinkling it evenly across the batter. Knead and mix until well incorporated.
  5. Using a cookie scoop, drop the batter by rounded scoopfuls onto a parchment-paper lined baking sheet OR roll out the dough with a rolling pin and use cookie cutters to create shapes.
  6. Bake at 350F for 6 - 8 minutes. Once the edges of the cookies have turned a golden brown, remove from the oven and allow to cool completely before lifting from cookie sheet.
  7. While your cookies are cooling, create the frosting by mixing the coconut oil, vanilla extract, and salt until well combined.
  8. Separate the frosting mixture into three small mixing bowls and add Berry Bliss Superfood Powder and Berrybee Manuka Honey to one, Green Dream Superfood Powder and Greenbee Manuka Honey to another, and Cacao Magic Superfood Powder and Cacaobee Manuka Honey to the remaining one.
  9. At this point, you may also add food coloring to make the colors of the icing brighter if you wish. (A small drop of red for Berry Bliss, a small drop of green for Green Dream, and a small drop of each for Cacao Magic.)
  10. You can place the frosting in the fridge to thicken if it becomes too runny.
  11. Add frosting to the cookies and then cool in the fridge before decorating.
  12. Store cookies in fridge until serving.

Easy, Raw Coconut Strawberry Bliss Bars

The LA bug is going around and I’m DETERMINED to not let it get to me or my family! The best way to combat the sickness bugs is through nourishment. I sneak in some vitamin C and immunity boosts whenever I can, which is why I’m so happy to have my superfoods on hand that make it so easy to add in nutrients and vitamins into my meals.


These coconut strawberry bliss bars are an easy-to-carry snack AND superfood boost all in one! I added dates, dried strawberries and agave so they’re super sweet and honestly, taste like a candy bar! Yet, it’s loaded with Berry Bliss Superfood + Protein Blends which includes camu-camu, one of the world’s most abundant sources of vitamin C.


This snack bar will give you long-lasting energy and vitality throughout the day! Plus, your whole family will love them because they taste so good!

Gather This: 

8 soft pitted dates

1 cup unsweetened coconut flakes

2 tbsp coconut oil

Mix all ingredients in a food processor or stand mixer until well combined. Roll into balls or press into a pan to cut into bars. Refrigerate for at least 30 mins.

Healing Cacao Cinnamon Date Latte

Is there anything better than a warm, grounding latte on a cool, winter day, especially during your morning grounding ritual or during the afternoon slump when you need a bit of a boost. This cinnamon date latte made with Cacao Magic Superfood + Protein Blend is the after caffeine boost your body will thank you for!!


Coffee can get a bad rep, but it’s really only harmful to you if consumed excessively like anything else in life. If you’re stressed, you should REALLY watch your caffeine intake because of cortisol, AKA the stress hormone is released after drinking coffee. It also stimulates the adrenal glands. Every time you drink it, you're activating the body's fight-or-flight response. Instead of releasing adrenaline so the body can react to a true stressor, the adrenals are releasing this hormone in response to your coffee consumption. Eventually, this can lead to adrenal fatigue.


This version is all-around better for you than a traditional latte you’d buy at your local coffee shop and - in our opinion - tastes better too! The only sweetener used is from Medjool dates, a bit of cinnamon (or our Fall Vibes Superfood Blend for warming spices) and vanilla extract. Not only that, but the scoop of Cacao Magic adds protein, magnesium, and mushroom magic from the reishi.

Gather This:

1 cup unsweetened almond milk

1 tbsp almond or nut butter (we used pecan butter)

1 large Medjool Date (pitted and roughly chopped)

1 tbsp Cacao Magic Superfood + Protein Blend

½ tsp ground cinnamon or 1 tsp Fall Vibes Superfood Blend

1 tsp pure vanilla extract

½ - ½ cup of coffee


Do This:

Brew your favorite coffee blend and set aside. In a saucepan, bring all the ingredients (except the coffee) to a low boil.  Remove from heat and place in a high-speed blender. Blend until smooth and creamy. Taste test and adjust flavors as needed. Pour anywhere from ¼ - ½ cup of coffee in your favorite mug and top with the milk blend. ENJOY!

Gluten-free Pumpkin Spice Holiday Pancakes

We have family staying with us this coming weekend through to next week for the holidays and it has me in the mood for brunch food! I shared this delicious stack of gluten-free pumpkin spice holiday cakes ahead of Thanksgiving but I’m bringing them back to celebrate with my family this weekend. 


I for one am SO excited to eat tons of nourishing, beautiful food and celebrate my family this coming week. The boys are out of school so we’ll be able to shift into slow mornings together with stacks of these buttery pancakes topped with superfood honey. This recipe is insanely simple because of Bob Red Mill’s Gluten-Free Pancake Mix. I also subbed in Goodmylk Co.’ Almond Milk and Chosen Food’s Coconut Oil instead of regular milk + oil (it’s THAT easy to make healthy substitutions). Finally, I added a touch of our Fall Vibes Superfood Blend (limited supply left in stock!) for the pumpkin flavor because I’m obsessed. 


These cakes were so thick and tasty - you’ll going to want to make them all week long!

Gather This:

1 cup Bob’s Red Mill Gluten-Free Pancake Mix

1 tbsp Chosen Food’s Coconut Oil

1 egg

¾ cup Goodmylk Co.’s Almond Milk (or milk of your choice)

1 tbsp Fall Vibes Superfood Blend


Do This:

Heat a lightly greased pan over medium heat. Mix all ingredients in a bowl until just combined and then pour ¼ cup portion into pan. Cook until bubbly, then flip and cook until done, about 2-3 minutes per side. Serve while hot and top with a drizzle of Berry Bee Honey and your favorite granola. 

 

I can’t wait to see your gorgeous brunch pics! Please share them with me on Instagram with #MyPhilosophie and #PhilosophieSuperfoods!

Philosophie Babe Recipe: Cinnamon Swirl Pumpkin Bread

We haven’t done a Philosophie Babe post here on the blog in a LONG time, but when our babe Amrit-Sadhana of Body Bliss Life shared this amazing pumpkin bread loaf we just HAD to share. With Thanksgiving behind us, what better way to use up the last of your pumpkin leftovers? AND..we still have a few bags left of our specially and lovingly blended Fall Vibes Superfood Blend to sprinkle all over this treat. 


Since Fall hit, I have felt a little more inspiration float back into my life. It feels so good to head into the kitchen with an idea in my head and just let myself do my thing. So in honor of this cool weather and pumpkin spice I created an adaptogenic (optional) Cinnamon Swirl Pumpkin Spice Bread. Yeah… you heard that right… it’s kind of insane. Here’s how I did it.


It’s warm, nourishing, hormone-balancing and gluten-free. So delicious and so perfect for those crisp mornings along with an adaptogenic latte.

 

Gather This:

WET INGREDIENTS - 

1 cup pumpkin puree

½ cup coconut sugar or lakanto monk fruit sweetener 

½ cup milk of choice

¼ cup coconut oil, melted

2 eggs or the equivalent of an egg replacer

1 tsp vanilla

DRY INGREDIENTS -

1 ½ cups gluten-free oat flour

1 tsp baking powder

½ tsp baking soda

1 tsp cinnamon

½ tsp ground ginger

¼ tsp ground cardamom 

⅛ tsp allspice

¼ tsp salt

TOPPING - 

¼ cup oats

¼ cup coconut sugar

2 tbsp butter or coconut oil

1 tbsp Fall Vibes Pumpkin Pie Superfood Blend

½ tsp cinnamon

¼ tsp ground ginger

¼ tsp ground cardamom

Do This:

Preheat the oven to 350℉ and grease a bread pan.

In a large bowl, whisk together all wet ingredients. Combine dry ingredients in a separate bowl and fold into wet ingredients. In a small bowl combine everything for the topping except the oats and butter. 

Pour half the batter into the bread pan. Sprinkle ½ the topping mixture over the batter. Pour remaining batter into pan. Using a knife, fold the batter to create the swirls. Add the oats and butter or oil to the remaining spice mixture. Break up with fingers until it’s crumbly. Top the batter with crumble and place in the oven. Back for 40-45 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Place on a cooling rack and allow to cool for 30 minutes.

Though the Fall Blend is not required for this recipe, it’s a fun addition as it adds immunity-building and hormone-supporting Ashwagandha, bio-available vitamin E and sweetness from the spices.

Pumpkin Spice Gratitude Cake

It’s gratitude week and Thanksgiving is this Thursday! How are you celebrating this week? Can you give your body a little more love + gratitude by cooking with intention? It can be so easy to get caught up in the holiday and the million little things to do, so finding time to slow down when you can and act with presence immediately bring more love into your body + soul. We have so much to be humbled by. Remind yourself throughout the day how wonderfully sweet your life is (almost as good as the food you’re blessed to enjoy!).


We decided to make a Simple Mills SUPERFOOD cake in honor of Thanksgiving and to celebrate how grateful we are for YOU! It turned out amazing and tastes insanely good. 


Simple Mills Pumpkin Muffin & Bread Mix is super easy to make and cuts your cook/prep time in half (compared to making the cake from scratch). It also uses clean ingredients and made with authentic pumpkin. It contains coconut sugar, almond flour and arrowroot. We’re all about balance and this mix makes it easy.


Loaded with Fall Vibes Pumpkin Pie Superfood Blend for an extra fall flavor + adaptogens, this cake is gluten-free, full of superfoods and family-friendly!

Gather This:

FOR THE CAKE - 

1 box Simple Mills Pumpkin Muffin & Bread Mix

3 eggs

¾ cup water

3 tbsp oil 

1 tbsp Fall Vibes Pumpkin Pie Superfood Blend

Simple Mills Vanilla Frosting

OR 

FOR THE FROSTING

1 cup vegan butter

1 ½  cups confectioners sugar

1 tsp Fall Vibes Pumpkin Pie Superfood Blend

¼ cup nut milk

¼ cup vegan or raw chocolate (melted)

2 tsp vanilla extract

Coconut flakes


Do This:

Preheat oven to 350℉. Combine wet ingredients in a bowl then add in dry ingredients. Spoon batter into a lightly greased pan (make it a heart pan for fun!). Bake for 20-30 min. 

While the cake is baking, add all of your dry frosting ingredients into a small bowl. Then add the vanilla, butter, melted chocolate and slowly add your milk. Whisk or beat until fluffy! And you can always add a little extra milk if the mixture is too thick, or a little extra Cacao Magic if it is too thin.
