DIRECTIONS

Sweet Potatoes 

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.
  2. Cut the sweet potato evenly into wedges and place into a plastic bag or a large bowl. 
  3. Add the sea salt, olive oil, hazelnut flour, and the chia seeds to the bag or the bowl. 
  4. Shake the bag until all of the wedges have been coated with the mixture. 
  5. Spread evenly onto the baking sheet. 
  6. Bake for 20 minutes at 400 degrees. Flip them and turn the oven up to 415 degrees and bake for another 20 minutes or until desired crispiness. 
 Avocado Hommus
  1. In a food processor, add all of the ingredients. Pulse until well incorporated. 
Taste test and adjust to your desired taste. It should still have the same consistency as hommus, yet a little on the thicker side, so be careful to not over mix.
