Celebrate it's Earth Day! Strawberry Chocolate Scones & Beetballs

Happy Earth Day! 
 Remember to celebrate our earth every day because we only have one.

Beetballs!  Can you get more earthy than this?
These incredible beetballs were found at Fat Free Vegan where you can find the recipe.
You don't have to be a beet lover to like these.  I was hesitant to try this recipe but once I added all of the   spices....I was shocked at how good these were.  I served them up with pasta and marinara. The next day they were added to a wrap.

Strawberry Chocolate Chip Scones.
These are as delicious as they look.
I wish I could take credit for the scone recipe because it is so good but I can't.  I found it last year on line on a blog called Vegan Bicyclinguist.  The scones are moist, unlike most scones, which make these so much better.  It's a great basic scone recipe to use and then you can change up what you would like to add to it.  I used spelt and then I left out the lemon zest for this recipe.

Enjoy the rest of this beautiful day!

  3. Beet balls? How interesting! For some reason, I never buy beets despite really enjoying them. Maybe it's time ;)

    Moist scones are definitely better! I might have to try my hand at them.
