Three Ingredient Peanut Butter Maple Cookies

These cookies are fast and easy and full of natural ingredients... and only THREE of them. I'll bet you probably already have them in the house, too. Can't you tell my little one is thinking, "Ok just take the picture and put them in the oven already!" ;)

1 cup peanut butter 
(or almond, sunflower seed butter, etc)
1/4 cup maple syrup 
(or 1/2 cup sugar- I won't judge, we just happen to need to avoid sugar around here)
1 egg
(Pasture-raised if you can.)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Mix room temperature peanut butter with maple syrup and egg
Form into cookies, press down with a fork in classic peanut butter cookie fashion, and place on a parchment paper lined baking sheet
Pop into the oven for 6-8 minutes or until bottoms are nicely browned but not burned
and then ENJOY!!!

Turkey Chili

We love a good bowl of chili on a cold winter's day and this recipe is quick and easy and perfect for a busy weeknight meal. Doubling the recipe feeds our whole family of six with wonderful leftovers that I freeze in small jars to pull out for lunches. I hope you enjoy as well.

1 pound ground turkey
1 white onion, chopped
2 cups bone broth (or less if you prefer thicker chili)
1 jar crushed tomatoes (I like Jovial's. I choose glass jars over cans as the tomato acid draws toxins out of plastic lined cans)
1 can kidney beans (or if you have the time it is really best for you to soak and cook kidney beans yourself. Read why here.)
whatever additions you like: cherry tomatoes and sliced peppers are favorites at our house, but get creative!
1 tablespoon garlic, minced
1/2 tsp paprika
1/2 dried oregano
1/2 tsp ground cayenne pepper
1/2 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp celtic sea salt
1/2 tsp black pepper

Cook turkey in butter and stir in onion and cook until tender. Pour in broth, mix in tomatoes, beans, garlic, and desired additions. Season and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer for 30 minutes.

Serve in a bowl with a large spoonful of sour cream and garnish with cheese and sliced green onion. Enjoy!!

(I can't remember where I originally found some version of this recipe. I have changed it a little over time, but the spices are on point and wish I knew who to thank. So if it's you, thank you. :)
