Apple "Chips" Compote

Its Sunday, rainy, dark and cold. Whats better than a warm dessert?

Here is my version of apple compote using apple chips, since I didn't have real apples and wanted to be creative.

 I wanted to make this recipe as healthy as possible so I used creamed raw honey from trader joe's.
 Its a supper simple recipe, and you can try it with real apples if you don't have apple chips.

Apple "Chips" Compote
1/2 cup apple chips
2 Tbsp  raw creamed honey
1 Tbsp cinnamon
1 Tsp nutmeg
1/4 cup water

Crush the apple chips add them to a sauce pan, add the rest of ingredients and cook on a low heat. so easy!

You can try to add it on vanilla ice cream. Its vegan, dairy free, and summer yummy.
 Enjoy :) Rosene

Chick Pea Flour Pizza (Gluten Free)

I was experimenting with chick pea (garbanzo) flour couple months ago. Its has a very strong chick pea taste, but I love chick peas so I was supper happy. I bought a pack of 6 from amazon, it was way cheaper than the stores. 
Here is my recipe of chick pea pizza crust!

Chick Pea Flour Pizza (Gluten Free)

2/3 cup garbanzo flour
1/2 cup water
1/2 teaspoon herbs (oregano, basil, mint)
1 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons chopped tomatoes
1 tablespoon onion, finely chopped
3 tablespoons fat free feta cheese, grated
1/4 teaspoon black pepper

Preheat your pan.
Sift the chickpea flour into a medium bowl.
Slowly add 1/4 cup of the water, whisking constantly to form a paste. Beat with a wooden spoon until smooth. Whisk in the remaining 1/4 cup of water and let the batter stand at room temperature for 30 minutes, then stir in the herbs.

Heat 1 tablespoon of the olive oil in a 12" nonstick ovenproof skillet. Stir the batter once, pour it into the skillet and drizzle the remaining tablespoons of olive oil on top.

I hope you like it its supper easy :) Rosene
