I was so excited to receive a copy of Purely Elizabeth’s new cookbook, aptly named “eat purely.” I’ve long been a fan of Elizabeth’s granolas and oatmeals packed with goodies like organic puffed amaranth, organic quinoa flakes, organic millet flakes, chia seeds, and more – and often stuff them in my bag during last minute travels. This recipe makes about 30 cookies but you can easily half it! INGREDIENTS 1 cup Purely Elizabeth Ancient Grain Original Oatmeal 1 cup almond flour ¾ cup millet flour ½ cup olive oil ¼ cup maple syrup ½ cup coconut sugar 3 tablespoons chia seeds ½ tsp Himalayan sea salt raspberry chia jam 1 cup frozen raspberries Chia seeds maple syrup METHOD For the chia jam: Warm the raspberries or let defrost to room temperature. Use the back of a fork to mash together with about a tablespoon of chia seeds and sweetener to taste. Set aside for a few minutes until the chia seeds begin to expand.

Below, Jerrelle Guy of Chocolate for Basil — a noted peanut butter critic — learns she has a soft spot for homemade peanut butter cups. What can I say, I’ve always been an opinionated chocolate purist, only interested in the darkest of the dark chocolate. Maybe accented by bits of orange or espresso here and there, but never — not ever — peanut butter. I know, I know. The flavor is too strong, and I don’t know, maybe something traumatic happened to me as a little girl that had to do with peanut butter.
