These gooey triple chocolate brownie-like cookies are sure to satisfy any chocolate lovers craving! They have sort of a merengue-like consistency outside, and a creamy chocolate center inside. Containing only seven ingredients total, they are super simple to make, and are healthy too (about as healthy as a cookie can get). These are flourless (so gluten-free), and contain cacao nibs which add an extra chocolate crunch when you bite. The recipe is adapted from Bon Appetit, in which I substituted Cacao powder for cocoa, Pink Himalayan Salt for regular, and they came out perfectly. Bake these for your lover for Valentine’s Day and keep them coming back for more…

Ingredients:

-3 cups gluten-free powdered sugar
-¾ cup Cacao Powder
-1 teaspoon Himalayan Pink Salt
-2 large egg whites
-1 large egg
-4 oz. bittersweet chocolate, chopped
-3 tablespoons cacao nibs

Instructions
Place racks in lower and upper thirds of oven; preheat to 350°. Whisk powdered sugar, cocoa powder, and salt in a large bowl, then whisk in egg whites and egg; fold in chocolate and cacao nibs. Spoon batter by the tablespoonful onto 2 parchment-lined baking sheets, spacing 2” apart.
Bake, rotating sheets once, until cookies are puffed, cracked, and set just around the edges, 14–16 minutes.
Transfer baking sheets to wire racks and let cookies cool on pan (they’ll firm up).
***Do Ahead:
Cookies can be baked 3 days ahead. Store airtight at room temperature.

So its official. Kale is delicious to eat AND drink. This smoothie that we discovered at our local farmers market is insanely good. The only ingredients are kale, avocado, apple, lemon, and coconut water. Its perfectly sweet, and super creamy, thanks to the avocado, and healthy bc there is no added sugar/frozen yogurt etc. Its now tradition to make the Taos Green booth our last stop at the market.

Im obsessed with coconut oil to say the least. I’ve been using it for everything under the sun lately. Whether its cooking or laying on the beach, I can always find a use for it. The most recent discovery is using it for eye makeup remover. Its natural  antibacterial & antioxidant  properties can rid your digestive tract of parasites, and clear your skin of pretty much anything (dryness, excema, rashes). Slather it on! Eat it up! Whatever you use it for you cant go wrong, so get creative!!! Read more about the benefits here

Juicing and superfoods… #trendy. It seems like every product on the shelves lately contains gogi/maca/coconut/hemp/chia etc. Here to tell ya, this is no different. I have to admit I’ve jumped on the bandwagon, and why not?? These antioxidant rich foods are big nutrition  in a small package. Not to mention the fact that they are delicious! Weve been making acai bowls with bee pollen, hemp/almond/coconut oil/chocolate energy bars, as well as using coconut oil for EVERYTHING (post on this soon). The latest venture is in juicing fresh cannabis leaves. The result? A fresh, grassy, super “shot” thats loaded with powerful nourishment. *Dont worry, the juice is not psychoactive, so you wont feel the affects of other intake methods like smoking or edibles.  ¡Solamente saludable!
