Homemade Wipes

 

Ingredients:

  • 1 roll of heavy duty paper towels (plain white)
  • Container, plastic shoe box, coffee container, etc.
  • 1 3/4 cups boiled water (or distilled)-cooled but still warm – (can just use regular water if you use them in less than a week)
  • 1 Tablespoon of pure aloe vera- check the ingredients
  • 1 Tablespoon of pure Witch Hazel Extract
  • 2 Tablespoons of Liquid Castille Soap
  • 2 capsules of Vitamin E (optional)
  • 1 Tablespoon of Olive or Almond Oil
  • Essential Oils of choice (I use organic lavender and vitamin oil–can purchase from Whole Foods)

Instructions:

  1. Cut the roll of paper towels in half using a sharp knife
  2. In bowl or quart size jar mix the water, aloe, witch hazel, castille soap, Vitamin E and oil and stir.
  3. Add essential oils if desired and stir.
  4. Pour over paper towels in container and let absorb- this takes about 5-10 minutes. (Tip: only saturate it and once the paper towels are completely saturated, stop pouring. Otherwise the wipes are too wet.)
  5. Flip the container over to make sure wipes are well soaked.
  6. Use as you would regular wipes

Gluten-Free Brownies

 

Ingredients: (Use all organic)

5 ounces high quality 100% cocoa dark chocolate

½  cup organic coconut oil

½  coconut sugar

½ cup Norbu sugar

1/2 cup almond meal

1/4 cup sorghum flour

1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt

1/4 teaspoon baking soda

2 organic free-range eggs, beaten well with a fork

1 tablespoon bourbon vanilla*

 

Optional:

1/2 cup chopped pecans or walnuts

Dark chocolate chips for the top

 

Instructions:

Preheat the oven to 350ºF. Line an 8×8-inch square baking pan with parchment paper.

Melt the dark chocolate and coconut oil in a saucepan over low heat, gently stirring. (Or melt in a microwave safe measuring cup and stir together to combine.)

In a mixing bowl whisk together the brown sugar, almond meal, sorghum flour, fine sea salt and baking soda. Make a well in the center and add the beaten eggs, vanilla extract and melted dark chocolate mixture. Beat on low-medium for two minutes, until the batter begins to come together. At first it will seem thin, like cake batter, but keep beating until it thickens and becomes smooth and glossy.

If you are adding nuts, stir in the nuts by hand and spread the batter into the prepared baking pan. Even out the batter with a silicone spatula.

Stud the top with some dark chocolate chips and press in slightly.

Bake in the center of a preheated 350ºF oven for 32 to 35 minutes, or until the brownies are set. The top will crack, like a flourless chocolate cake.

Cool on a wire rack; and remove the cooled brownies from the pan by gripping the foil edges and lifting the brownies out as a whole.

Chill for an hour before cutting. (Though warm and gooey is really divine, if you don’t mind them falling apart.)

Yield: 16 servings

*For chocolate-mint brownies use 1 teaspoon peppermint extract and 1 teaspoon vanilla extract.
