I absolutely love this time of year. Cozy fall sweaters, crisp mornings, apples, pumpkins, warm tea, a good book and cozy recipes like this. Our bodies were meant to align with the seasons and it is important to listen. You may notice you crave cold raw foods less such as salads, smoothies, etc. and are beginning to gravitate towards warmer dishes. I always notice I want to drink a lot of tea this time of year. This is our bodies highly intelligent way of aligning us with nature and preparing us for winter.
This quote from Alice Waters “Coming To My Senses” is so beautiful, important and captures everything I truly believe about food and our higher connection to it. “I really believe that nature is everybody’s mother- and I think our disconnection from it is the reason for so many of the problems we have now.” I think much of our culture is disconnected from nature in a way that is limiting us. Food and cooking is such an easy way to do this.
This recipe is a favorite in our home and the combination of the ghee, ripe bananas and rum make it really lovely not to mention it is super easy to prepare. You will not even taste the rum and any alcohol will cook off so do not worry about it not being appropriate to give to kids.

3 tbs organic grassfed ghee
3 organic local eggs
1 tsp real organic vanilla extract
