*REQUIRES FOOD PROCESSOR*
1/2 cup pitted prunes
1/4 cup pitted dates
3 TBS almond butter (I just used almonds which I soaked for 1 hour beforehand)
1 TBS maple syrup (tastes just fine without this)
3 TBS unsweetened cocoa
1/2 cup finely grated unsweetened coconut
Consider adding oats next time
In a food processor, drop the prunes and dates through the feed hole one by one. Scrape the processor bowl and run until the prunes and dates are smooth.
Add remaining ingredients except for the coconut. Run until smooth and scrape the processor bowl with a spatula as needed.
Roll the mixture into 12 one-inch balls and roll in coconut to coat. Refrigerate for at least 1/2 hour.
Makes 12 pieces

3 Tbls butter
2 cups flour (or can substitute partially with whole oats)
2/3 cup sugar
3 tsp baking powder
2 cups milk
4 cups berries (frozen works just fine!)
Melt the butter in a cake pan (9 x 13) - I turn on oven and place the butter inside and let it melt.
Mix next four ingredients together and pour in pan after butter is evenly distributed on the bottom.
sprinkle berries on top .
Bake 350 for about 40-45 minutes.
Just as a side note. I created my own mixture of flour. I use a combination (equal part of each) of ground oatmeal, spelt flour, almond meal and rye flour.

RECIPE IS FROM MYRECIPES.COM originally from Southern Living
This method makes French-style cooking easy. Each parcel of fish and veggies steams with its own delicious juices (a technique called en papillote). The package concentrates the flavors, and when opened at the table, it releases a dramatic cloud of aromatic steam.
MAKES 4 servings
1/2 pound fresh asparagus
8 sweet mini peppers
1 small sweet onion, thinly sliced
4 pickled okra pods, halved lengthwise
8 ounces small Yukon gold potatoes, sliced
1 tablespoon chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
1/2 teaspoon chopped fresh dill
2 tablespoons plus 1 1/2 tsp. olive oil
1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
4 (17-inch) parchment paper or aluminum foil squares
4 (6- to 8-oz.) fresh snapper fillets, skin on I actually used Tilapia without skin
1 lemon, quartered I also added lemon pepper which gave it a nice spice
4 tablespoons butter
1. Preheat oven to 400°. Snap off tough ends of asparagus, and discard. Toss together asparagus, next 6 ingredients, 1 Tbsp. olive oil, and 1/2 tsp. each salt and black pepper. Divide mixture among parchment paper squares; top each with 1 snapper fillet, skin side up. Sprinkle with remaining salt, and drizzle with remaining oil. Squeeze juice from lemon over fillets; and top each with 1 Tbsp. butter. Bring parchment paper sides up over mixture; fold top, and twist ends to seal. Place packets on a baking sheet.
2. Bake at 400° for 15 to 20 minutes or until a thermometer registers 140° to 145° when inserted through paper into fish. Place packets on plates, and cut open. Serve immediately.
PARCHMENT IS BEST FOR: Fish fillets that are about 1 inch thick, such as snapper, flounder, sole, striped bass, and salmon.
EXPERT ADVICE: Packets must be tightly sealed so they don't come undone while baking. Make small, snug, overlapping folds to seal each bundle, and then twist the tail ends tightly closed.
