Today was an extra cup (or two) coffee kind of morning.

I set my alarm to go off at 5am but hit snooze and slept until 6. And then Madison woke up a little after 6:30am. After getting her ready for the day it was time for that perfect first cup of coffee. You know the one. Hot. Smooth. Oh so soothing to the soul.

Then it was playtime (and workout time for mommy) followed by breakfast. Madison enjoyed some cooked pureed pears as I enjoyed our typical protein coconut oil mush. Then it was time for that second cup of coffee.  Madison has been fighting her morning naps the past few days. Usually her morning nap is her best nap… not this week. Also, they are back to only being 30 minutes long instead of her 45 min to an hour ones. Not sure what is going on as I feel I do the same thing with her every morning.  We snuggled for 20 minutes which I would not change those special moments for the world. As I was sitting with her before her morning nap I kept thinking to myself how I am so happy. How I am so grateful that I can sit here and BE with my daughter.

Since she decided this morning she wasn’t really going to sleep I decided a morning walk would be good. And it was! It was breathtaking outside. Perfect temperature and sunny. I counted my blessings yet again on the walk.

Nothing beats a coffee-filled, blessed beautiful day than a delicious homemade treat. Michelle and I made these bars the other day and ate two slices yesterday. These bars are just the kind of dessert we adore. Not too sweet. Simple ingredients. Full of flavor and nutrition.

This looks amazing and is going to be my new weekend activity! Is there a substitution for the tigernut flour? Also, will the cake (specifically the whipped cream part) keep in the fridge? Thank you!

Sara you can use any nut or seed meal to replace the tigernut flour. Yes store in fridge and let sit out for about 5-10 minutes at room temperature before eating

First, this recipe looks delicious. Second, you girls are genius. Plantain cookie bars??? I am wondering about tigernut flour – what is it derived from? Do you use it in many recipes?

I’m always on the lookout for new GF, V things! 🙂
