SUPERFOOD SIDES

Fall Vibes Cornbread


Gather This:

6 tbsp melted unsalted butter (or canola oil for a healthier version)

2 tbsp unsalted butter (or canola oil for healthier version)

1 ¾ cup cornmeal

½ cup Fall Vibes

1 tsp kosher salt

1 tsp baking powder

½ tsp baking soda

1 ½ cup buttermilk

1 Egg


Do This:

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees, and place 9” cast iron skillet in oven while it preheats.

Combine the cornmeal, Fall Vibes, salt, baking powder, and baking soda in a bowl. 

Combine the buttermilk, egg, melted butter(or oil) in a small bowl.

Stir the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients, making sure not to over mix. 

Carefully place the skillet on the stove over high heat. Add the 2 tablespoons of butter (or oil) to the skillet. Pour in the batter, and spread evenly. 

Bake for about 20 minutes. A toothpick should come out of the center clean.


Kale Salad with Green Bee Honey Vinaigrette 


Gather This:

4 bunches kale (chopped into small pieces) 

1 cup pecans (chopped and toasted) 

3 tbsp sesame seeds (toasted) 

1 bunch green onions (sliced on a bias)

½ cup Green Bee Honey

½ cup wildflower honey

¼ cup white balsamic vinegar 

1 ½ cup grapeseed oil

Pinch of salt


Do This:

In a blender or food processor, add the honeys and vinegar. Mix until fully incorporated, very slowly drizzle in the oil. This will create an emulsion, season with salt and pepper to taste. The dressing will keep for 1 week refrigerated and is great on roasted veggies. 

Mix together the chopped kale and honey vinaigrette, really work it into the kale.  Let stand at room temperature for 5 to 10 minutes.  Then toss with the nuts, seeds and green onions. Season to taste. 



MAIN DISHES

Fall Harvest Vegetables

Serves: 10 side portions 


Gather This:

5 pounds of your favorite vegetables, like squash, eggplant, carrots, brussel sprouts and cauliflower. Peeled and sliced into bite size pieces.

½ cup grapeseed oil

¼ cup wildflower honey or Philosophie Honey

¼ cup Cacao Magic Coconut Butter

2 tbsp sherry vinegar

1 tbsp kosher salt

10 sprigs thyme

1 bunch rosemary

OTHER TOPPINGS:

Microgreens

Toasted chopped nuts

Toasted seeds

Bee pollen

Pickled vegetables 


Do This:

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.

In a large bowl mix together the oil, honey ,vinegar and salt. Once fully mixed together add the vegetables and herbs. Toss everything together and place on a sheet tray lined with parchment paper. 

Cover the tray with foil and roast for 30 minutes. Once the vegetables feel tender to the touch, remove the foil and roast for another 15 to 20 minutes longer. This will allow the vegetables to caramelize a bit and add a ton of flavor. Remove the herbs and toss with your favorite toppings. 

 

SUPERFOOD DESSERTS

Cacao Nice Cream

Makes: 1 Quart


Gather This:

6 oz. dark chocolate (chopped up)

2 cup whole milk (or milk of choice)

2 cup heavy cream

1 cup sugar

½ cup Cacao Bee Honey

5 egg yolks

Pinch of salt


Do This:

Melt the chocolate in a heat proof bowl, on top of a double boiler. Set aside to cool slightly.

Pour the milk and cream into a medium saucepan and bring to a simmer over medium heat. When it just comes to a simmer, whisk in the melted chocolate and turn the heat off. 

Prepare an ice bath. Set up a fine mesh strainer over a clean bowl.

Whisk together the egg yolks, sugar, and honey in a heatproof bowl. Temper ⅓ of the hot milk mixture into the egg mixture. Slowly pour the egg mixture back into the pan and stir to incorporate. Turn the heat back on to medium and cook the custard. Stirring constantly and making sure to scrape the sides of the pan so that you don’t curdle the eggs. When the custard starts to steam and it thickens enough to coat the back of a spoon. Immediately pour the mixture through the strainer, and set the bowl in the ice bath. Stir in the salt and let cool. 

Once cool, transfer mixture to an airtight container and refrigerate overnight. The next day churn according to your machine's instructions. 


Cocoa Magic Brownies 


Gather This:

1 ¼ cup all-purpose flour (GF version I prefer Anson Mills GF Blend)

1 cup cocoa

1 cup Cacao Magic

1 ½ tsp salt

2 sticks room temperature unsalted butter (medium dice)

1 cup canola oil

4 large eggs

1 ½ cup sugar

1 cup Cacao Bee Honey

¾ tsp vanilla extract

10 oz. chocolate chips 


Do This:

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9” x 13” baking tray and line with parchment paper. 

Melt the butter and mix together with the oil. Set aside to cool.

Sift together the flour, cocoa, cocoa magic, and salt. Set aside to mix in later.  

Using a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, whip the eggs, sugar and honey until the mixture is light and airy about 3-4 minutes. With the mixer running on lowest setting, slowly mix in the dry ingredients alternating with the oil and butter mix. Be careful not to over mix at this stage. Once everything is fully incorporated, remove bowl from mixer and fold in the chocolate chips. Pour brownie mixture into the pan and bake for 50 to 65 minutes. The edges should just start to pull away from the pan, and a tooth pick in the middle should come out clean. Make sure you don’t hit any chocolate chips when you test it.

Honey-Drizzled Rosemary Fig Toast

We’re sharing one of our favorite toast recipes that’s creative & delicious, while not being too overly sweet. After spreading ghee onto a slice of gluten-free toast and topping it with Cacao Bee Honey, figs, bee pollen, and berries, add a sprig of rosemary to add a lovely pine taste, along with a calming aroma! 

 

Besides helping you ground down and easing any anxiety, rosemary also stimulates the immune system, boosts circulation, and promotes healthy digestion. This high-vibrational herb also pairs beautifully with the figs, which nourish the intestines and support healthy digestion due to their high amounts of fiber. This sweet, chewy fruit is also rich in potassium, which helps lower blood pressure. 

 

While this delectable toast makes for a flavorful brekkie that'll definitely awaken your taste buds, it also works as a wholesome snack that'll help chase away any midday stress that's built up! 

Gather This:

1 slice of gluten-free toast

2 figs, sliced

1 sprig of rosemary

1 tbsp bee pollen 

1 tsp Cacao Bee Honey

1 handful blueberries

1 tsp ghee (coconut oil or butter also work)

handful of mulberries

 

Do This:

Toast your bread and spread on the ghee. Slice fig, place on the toast, and drizzle with the honey. Top with sprinkles of bee pollen, blueberries, rosemary and mulberries.

Gluten-free Holiday Spiced Pancakes

The holidays are all about eating tons of nourishing, beautiful food and celebrating with friends and family. This is a beautiful time 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 almond milk and 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 and topped with our Berry Bee Honey instead of maple syrup which makes this stack extra sweet and extra nutritious! Perfect for the family to enjoy. 

 

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

Gather This:

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

1 tbsp coconut oil

1 egg

¾ cup almond milk (or milk of your choice)

1 tbsp Fall Vibes Superfood Blend

Drizzle of Berry Bee Honey


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.

Peppermint Collagen Hot Chocolate

The holiday season is all about celebrations with friends and loved ones surrounded by good food. What we nourish our bodies affects our health and mood; when we nourish ourselves with real food and lovingly enjoy a holiday treat we are more likely to maintain bliss and balance. 


No need to deprive yourself and definitely no need for judgment or guilt, especially when you incorporate high-vibe superfoods into your holiday treats!


This rich, minty hot chocolate gets its smooth texture from highly nutritious nut milk and its subtle sweetness from immunity-boosting honey. We’ve added our Cacao Magic blend for a variety of potent superfoods, including a dose of finely milled reishi mushroom powder, known to have an ever-growing list of healing properties. And a boost of our Cosmic Elixir for collagen and superfoods. 

Gather This:

1 cup non-dairy milk

½ cup water

3 tbsp Cacao Magic or raw cacao

1 ½ tbsp sweetener of choice

A small pinch of salt

¼ tsp peppermint extract

1 tsp Cosmic Elixir

1 ounce of chocolate ( raw, vegan carob will also work)


Do This:

Blend all of the ingredients together, except for the chocolate. Pour the liquid into a small saucepan, add the chocolate and slowly bring to a simmer over medium heat. Whisk in the chocolate. Simmer for another minute or so, keeping an eye on the chocolate to make sure it doesn’t burn. Remove from heat. Enjoy warm or chilled (wine glass over ice)!
