Blueberry, Blackberry & Oat Clafoutis (gluten-free, dairy-free) and The Alchemist.
I told myself I was taking a break from the kitchen for a few days after a busy few weeks with work. But I’ve had a lot on my mind the last few days and baking has become a quiet space for me... a space to think and create.
I decided to make a clafoutis because it’s the first dessert I learned to make while living in France and I have a thing for the French classics and wanting to create healthier versions - because life is too short not to be able to have those sweet moments. We should be able to have them and still feel like we can live healthy. Blueberries, blackberries, oats, oat flour, coconut milk, vanilla, maple syrup, sea salt, coconut oil and chia eggs topped with coconut sugar + arrow root. I’ll put the recipe on my site this week. It couldn’t be more simple.
As I baked, I was listening to one of my favorite @supersoul podcasts I often come back to with Paulo Coelho because there were some things I needed to be reminded of today...that the testing is all part of the path. Maybe these words will speak to someone else too. “Before a dream is realized, the soul of the world tests everything we’ve learned along the way...so we can master the lessons we’ve learned as we move toward that dream.” #saltandwateralchemy #vibrantbeautyfood #f52fresh
