Jon and Jenny Gilmore have a coffee stand with pour over Fair Trade coffee and the BEST made to order Paleo Waffles and other clean-eating treats. For those of us who are staying away from refined sugars and most grains… oh boy – Rooted Coffee is like stepping into heaven! You can find them at the Farmer’s Market in Walnut Creek and at most Crossfit Events in the NorCal area. Oh yes, did I mention that they are Crossfitters!? Their friend does all the roasting, and they deliver freshly roasted beans or cold brew coffee right to your door. Oh. My. Goodness.
My husband Jeff’s job puts him at many of these same events, and he comes home with stories about the yummy things he ate from their coffee stand. A few weeks ago I emailed Jenni begging her for the Marley’s Coffee Overnight Oats recipe. Jeff was less than pleased with all of my attempts to make up my own recipes… he wanted THIS ONE! Thank you so much Jenni for sharing this winning recipe with our family. I’m thrilled that she’s okay’ed me to share it with you too!
Jon and Jenny Gilmore with their little Marley…baby #2 & #3 have arrived since I first wrote this post!
Be sure to take a look at their website and give them a visit at an event near you.
