Brought to you by Golden Valley Eggs

These Sneaky Hulk Crepes are loaded with spinach, eggs and hemp hearts and are served with a chocolate whipped mascarpone filling and candied walnuts. Making them perfect for breakfast, lunch or dinner and they always get a huge thumbs up from kids, which is always an added bonus.

Ingredients

For the Crepe Batter

  • 3 cups Spinach
  • 1 Banana (the browner it is, the sweeter the batter)
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup All-purpose flour
  • 2 cups Milk (I use oat or almond, but any milk will work)
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla extract
  • ¼ teaspoon Salt
  • ½ cup Hemp hearts

For the Whipped Chocolate Mascarpone Filling

  • 6 oz Mascarpone cheese
  • 1 cup Heavy whipping cream
  • 2 tablespoons Maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla extract
  • ¼ cup Cocoa

For the Candied Walnuts

  • 1 cup Unsalted walnuts
  • 1 tablespoon Water
  • 2 tablespoons Brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon Honey

Instructions

For the Crepes:

  1. Place all of the ingredients in a high-speed blender and blend on high for 45 seconds until it becomes a smooth batter. If you find that it is too watery, place in the fridge for 30 minutes to allow to thicken up a bit.
  2. To make the crepes, heat a 12-inch non-stick pan. You can coat it with cooking spray if you’d like, but I skip this step as I don’t find I need it.
  3. Pour about 1/3 cup (I soup ladle amount) of the batter into the centre of the frying pan and swoosh it around to spread it out evenly.
  4. Cook for 40 seconds or so, until the bottom has cooked through and you can flip over. Then flip it over and cook for another 30 seconds or so, until they are fully cooked through.
  5. Place on a plate and set aside. Continue until all the batter is gone. Makes approximately 10 crepes.

For the Mascarpone Filling:

  1. Place all of the ingredients in a high-speed blender, or you can use an electric mixer and a large mixing bowl to make it.
  2. Combine all of the ingredients together for 1 minute in a blender, or until it is thick and smooth and resembles the texture of icing.
  3. Scoop out and place in the fridge until ready to use.

For the Candied Walnuts:

  1. In a non-stick frying pan over medium heat, melt the brown sugar, water and honey until bubbling.
  2. Add the walnuts, stirring thoroughly to coat.
  3. Cook, stirring for 4-5 minutes, until fragrant and most of the liquid has evaporated.
  4. Spread the walnuts into a single layer onto a parchment lined baking sheet and use a fork to separate them.
  5. Set aside to let them cool.


Chocolate Lava Cake

Brought to you by Gray Ridge Eggs

These decadent and rich Chocolate Lava Cakes are easy to make and even easier to enjoy! Their warm, molten centres make for a melt-in-your mouth experience that will surely impress any guest. Serve with vanilla ice cream for a beautiful contrast in temperatures.

Makes: 4 Servings
Prep Time: 10 Minutes
Cook Time: 15 Minutes

Ingredients

  • tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder, for dusting
  • 6 oz semi-sweet chocolate, chopped
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 egg yolks
  • ½ cup icing sugar
  • ¼ cup all-purpose flour
  • ⅛ tsp salt

Optional

  • vanilla ice cream
  • sprinkles

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F (200°C). Grease four ¾ cup (175 mL) ramekins with butter; dust with cocoa powder. Set aside.
  2. In a large heatproof bowl, combine butter and chocolate. Set bowl over a large saucepan of gently simmering (not boiling) water. Cook stirring until melted and smooth, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove heatproof bowl from large pot and allow to cool, 2 to 3 minutes.
  3. Whisk in eggs and egg yolks, one at a time, into chocolate mixture, until incorporated. Add icing sugar, flour and salt; mix gently, until smooth.
  4. Spoon batter evenly among prepared ramekins. Place on a small rimmed baking sheet. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until edges of desserts are firm and slightly cracked, but centre is still soft and spongey to a gentle touch.
  5. Remove from oven, allow to cool 3 to 5 minutes. Gently loosen edges with a knife and invert onto individual serving plates. Serve warm with vanilla ice cream and sprinkles, if desired.

Tip: For very runny centres, similar to chocolate sauce, bake for 10 minutes; for a slightly firmer centre, similar to pudding, bake up to 12 minutes.


Ninja Berry Crisp

Ingredients
Filling
¼ cup LIVA Date Sugar
¼ cup Hot Water
1 ½ tsp Vanilla Extract
1 Tbsp Cinnamon- ground
1 Tbsp Arrowroot Flour/Starch
1 Tbsp Coconut Oil
3 cups Wild Blueberries- frozen

Crisp
½ cup Coconut Oil
1 Tbsp Cinnamon- ground
¼ tsp Sea Salt
2 Tbsp Nut or Seed butter (Almond or Sunflower- no added oils)
2 ½ cups Quick Cooking Oats- regular or gluten free
¼ cup LIVA Date sugar

Serve with Coconut Cream or whipping cream.

 

Instructions
Preheat oven to 350F

For the filling, in a small bowl combine LIVA date sugar, hot water, vanilla, cinnamon, arrowroot, and coconut oil. Stir until well combined.

In a baking dish, add frozen wild blueberries. Pour wet filling mixture over the berries. Because of the coldness of the berries, the coconut oil will start to re-harden. Just continue to mix until the blueberries are well coated. It will all come together in the oven.

In a mixing bowl, combine coconut oil, cinnamon, sea salt, and nut (or seed butter).( Make sure there are no added oils in the nut or seed butter that you chose.) Then add in the oats and mix together well until the oats are evenly coated.

Pour oat mixture over the berries and gently spread over the berry mixture. Place in the oven for 20-25 minutes.

Serve with coconut cream or whipping cream. Garnish with cinnamon and LIVA date sugar. Every little bite of this crisp is packed with a ninja kick and POP of flavour!

Tip: Looking to make it more nutrient dense? Try adding in our (ninja) berry chia jam into the filling.

Ginger Cookies

Makes about 15-20 1.5-2” cookies

Ingredients
¾ cup LIVA Date sugar
⅓ cup Coconut Oil
½ cup Hot Water
2 tsp Vanilla Extract
¼ tsp Sea Salt
⅓ cup Nut or Seed Butter (Almond or sunflower- no added oils)

1 cup Spelt Flour
½ cup Almond flour/meal
½ tsp Baking Soda
2 ½ tsp Cinnamon- ground
2 ½ tsp Ginger powder
¼ tsp Clove- ground
¼ tsp Nutmeg- ground

1 Egg

1 small bowl of warm water- set aside.

Instructions
Preheat oven to 350F and line a large baking sheet.

In a medium mixing bowl, combine LIVA date sugar, coconut oil, hot water, vanilla extract, sea salt, and nut (or seed) butter of choice. Make sure there are no added oils in the nut or seed butter that you use. Mix well until it’s a smooth and thick paste- almost like a molasses texture.

Then add in flours, spices and baking soda. Mix together well. Taste it and adjust spices to your palette if needed. Once combined, add in the egg and gently mix it in until evenly distributed.

In a small bowl, add some warm water and place it beside the mixing bowl and baking sheet.
With a spoon, scoop batter and place on a lined baking sheet. Dip fingers in warm water as needed. Gently spread scooped batter on the lined baking sheet with at least 1” of space in between each cookie. They will expand a little but they don’t smooth out when baking. So dip fingers in the water bowl and smooth out as needed.

Bake in the oven for 8-12 minutes until the edges are firm. Remove from the baking sheet and cool on the cooling rack or stone

The egg in this recipe strengthens the cookies so you little ones will be parading into the kitchen and POPping them into their mouths.
