  1. I am so confused by fair trade to be honest, so i am trying to do more research. I know we buy fair trade coffee but I dont know what else we do buy or dont buy.
    I am interested in trying the coconut flour the most

  2. I absolutely love fair trade! I do my best to buy fair trade but sometimes it’s so difficult when you are in immediate need for the ingredients to your dinner and the closest grocery store’s organic/health section is only produce. I support fair trade and the endeavors that they are trying to make in our stubborn world.
    Secondly, if I were to receive all these fair trade ingredients, there are a few that I would use to make blueberry muffins! A classic, of course because I want to find ways that I can incorporate organic and fair trade into my regular diet. I’d use the fair trade coconut flour and fair trade blue agave for both texture and sweetness. The rest would have to come from elsewhere: eggs, baking soda, homemade apple cider, and if summer comes sooner than later fresh blueberries! And maybe if I’m feeling the muffins need an extra something a cinnamon sugar crumble top might just be the thing to finish these muffins. I can use the fair trade cinnamon (thrilled that spices are a common fair trade item!), regular sugar because I’m not sure if agave would make the crumble too mushy, and fair trade coconut oil.
    I just moved and had to give up a lot of my pantry items as my car had little room left and so it would be such a thrill to receive all these fair trade items, to kick off my new pantry with the RIGHT items!

  3. I am not sure what recipe I could make that would top yours. Anything I make would just be second to yours. I think the bark thins would make a great crumbled crust for some type of pie.

  4. Your smoothie looks ridiculously tasty, especially with the graham cracker crumbles.. genius! I love supporting fair trade companies and always enjoy finding the companies I haven’t heard or experienced yet. I’ve been wanting to use coconut flour in my baking.

  5. I would use the green tea to make a homemade version of Starbucks blackberry mojito tea lemonade. Fell in love with them lady summer.

  6. I would love to make some muffins with the coconut flour, coconut oil, and cinnamon. My daughter is really into muffins right now and would love to help me with a batch.

  7. Those all look great! 🙂 I’d love to try to make some cookies with the coconut flour and the agave. 🙂

  8. The first thing I would make would be quinoa stir-fry with chicken and vegetables. I would also use the coconut flour, chocolate, and agave to make brownies. Thank you so much for the giveaway!

  9. This looks delicious! And I would be all over that cinnamon – I put cinnamon in everything from cookies to oatmeal to breads to all other baked goods.

  10. I would love to make a blueberry crumb cake with the flour! All the ingredients look good!

  11. Your Chocolate Banana Cream Pie smoothie looks so delicious, and I will make my Pumpkin Creme-Filled Donuts using the Coconut flour!

  12. I don’t think I have used any of these. I would like to try all of them. I have to live on $24/MOnth for food! So this would be great. I weigh 73 lbs. my Dr says that I am malnourished. This would definitely help.

  13. First thing I’d make is a cup of tea, which I would enjoy while figuring out what to make next!

  14. Wow, there’s quite a bit to work with there. I’m thinking a chocolate/coffee breakfast quinoa bake…It could double as a dessert too!

  15. I would certainly make use of the coconut flour! I have a recipe for a gluten free lemon coconut muffin that I would really like to try 🙂 and the quinoa would be used in a warm salad with baby heirloom tomatoes, roasted asparagus and chive.

  16. I totally support Fair Trade. 🙂 Love your recipe. If I won, I would make a Chocolate coconut pound cake (saw the coconut flour in there). 🙂

  17. I love using Fair trade items. I wish more people had more knowledge about what fair trade was really about.

  18. BarkTHINS in pudding are amazing! That’s what I’ll make (first). GREAT prize pack. I’m drooling!

  19. I’ve made a concentrated effort to buy fair trade products. I always get the fair trade bananas even if it’s more than the conventional ones. I love the NUMI teas and the Nutiva coconut oil.
