So I’ve gotten into the bad habit of buying nut bars in a pack from the supermarket as an easy on-the-run snack. And lets face it, I probably still will at times, they are the least offensive of the snack bars in my opinion. But I thought I might at least try and make a healthier home made version. An dude, this is a winner!
Woah, you guys! I just made this and couldn’t wait to share it. I didn’t really have a plan for dessert for our guests, so I just made this up as I went along. It’s gluten free/grain free and it’s delicious! (more…)
OK, so I’m not making any claims that this is a healthy item of food. However, I am going to say, that I’ve tried to make it health-ier than the original recipe I used as a baseline. (more…)
Sometimes, you just need something creamy and frozen and delicious, like ice cream for example. This recipe has all those qualities, is made from real ingredients, and is really easy. (more…)
So I tried something new and it turned out so delicious, I thought I better share! I love this because its takes about 30 seconds to make, has no sugar but is a yummy sweet treat. You paleontologists will love this!
Now, my style of cooking is pretty experimental, and I try to keep things as healthy as possible. The other thing about these type of “recipes” is that I sometimes don’t remember exactly how much I put in. Here’s a guide..
Banana date nut slice
2 c almond meal*
1 c dates
1 c desiccated coconut
3/4 c cashew nuts
1/2 – 3/4 c coconut oil
Chop dates and cashews and add them to almond meal and coconut in a bowl. In another bowl, mash up all your wet ingredients together – eggs, oil, banana and vanilla. Then make a well in the dry ingredients and mix!
Pour into a slice tin and cook for about 25 mins or so. Eat hot, cold or frozen!
*Please note… I never use pre made almond meal, I buy bulk almonds (from Aldi mostly) and blitz them in the food processor myself. It’s much cheaper and you get a wholemeal effect from the skin still being on, plus they aren’t blanched or anything. Win!
