Also in other news, Facebook admits to the Organic reach of pages decreasing so they can urge people to buy ads for more reach. This is quite nasty, as fb is one of my larger social media reach, that I built by sharing, contributing and by My content, and not by buying followers. I offer all the recipes and content free, so buying to reach my own page followers does not make sense. (the ads do not even reach all followers even if I spend some insane recommended amount),
There are several options to not miss a post, follow the blog on RSS readers, bloglovin, other social media, use apps like friendcaster for facebook that can edit what you see in your newsfeed, add the facebook page to fb interest lists or click on "Get Notifications" on the Page. I usually post 1-2 times in a day, so you will definitely not be flooded with too many notifications. Thank you all for being here!

1 Tbsp cornstarch or arrowroot starch
2 Tbsp Coconut flour
1 Tbsp flaxseed meal well ground
1/3 cup ground raw sugar or other fine sugar (1 Tbsp more for sweeter)
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp fine sea salt
1/4 cup coconut milk or non diary milk
Add some lemon or orange zest in the jar.
Add 1/4 cup cranberries or pistachios or chocolate chips.
Make the Jar:
Mix the baking powder and salt into the coconut flakes. Layer all the ingredients. Layer any additions like chocolate chips, cranberries or pistachio slivers. Seal and gift.
Instructions on the jar:
Add all the ingredients from the jar to a bowl. Give a good whisk. Add 1/4 cup coconut milk and mix well. Knead for a minute to make a dough. Add vanilla or rum extract or lemon/orange zest for variations. Let the dough sit for 5 minutes. Shape into discs or cones. Bake at pre-heated 335 degrees F for 19-20 minutes or until medium brown at the bottom.
Notes: if you like small flakes, pulse the jar contents a few times before adding coconut milk.
These cookies are being shared at ricki's wellness weekend.
An amazing Debate took place on "Don't Eat anything with a face" on Intelligence squared, with Dr Neal Barnard and Gene Baur (amazing people!) debating for the motion and Chris Masterjohn and Joel Salatin against the motion. You can watch the entire debate, the results, or read the transcript here, or watch below. It is surprising that the discussion completely eliminated factory farming since 95% of the meat, dairy, eggs come from there. I also found the opposing team to be a bit not confident and mocking at times, not addressing racism, bringing in religion. Its a good listen to stir up some brain cells and get us thinking.
