½ cup Tahini
1 ½ cup rolled oats
1/3 cup raw sunflower seeds
1/3 cup raisins
In a mixing bowl stir together maple syrup and tahini until creamy. Add remaining ingredients and stir well. Optional: Add 1 tsp cinnamon and ½ tsp vanilla.
2 options for baking:
Dehydrator: Drop by spoonfuls on parchment paper laid on top of the trays. Dehydrate overnight at 105 (about 10 hrs). Store in the refrigerator. Dehydrating does not remove the nutrition from these cookies.
Bake in Oven: Drop by spoonfuls on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes.
Makes about 12-15 cookies.

1 Lb Ground meat (grass fed beef or bison)
1 Onion chopped
½ Green pepper chopped
2 Carrots grated (1 large or 2 small)
½ C Oatmeal
1 t. Thyme
½ t. Cumin
½ t. Oregano
1 t. Sage leaves or ½ tsp ground sage
½ tsp ground fennel
3 T. Soy sauce
Preheat oven to 350
Mix all ingredients together and press into a loaf pan. Bake for 50 min or until well done. Drain extra fat if necessary.
I like to make this meatloaf and use the leftovers in spaghetti sauce over brown rice pasta it also makes a great addition to a stir fry. That is 3 meals from one recipe. If you have a large family and wish to use leftovers, I would suggest making two loaves.
Another suggestion would be to make 3 mini-loaves and freeze them from later use.
