So I found this recipe online when I was looking for interesting ways to use zucchinis. Immediately I couldn't wait to try it! I was totally sceptical that it was going to taste like a vegetable, wouldn't be anything like a regular brownie, or simply wouldn't be rich enough. Boy was I wrong!! This brownie has totally ticked all the boxes, I am absolutely delighted about it. I varied the original recipe and this is how I made it:
Everyone seems to have a bliss ball recipe and some are better than others! This one is a really simply recipe that can be used as a great base, you can add cacao nibs, 85% chocolate, dried berries, chopped nuts, peppermint oil, anything really. I love to add a little maca poweder to mine which is great for hormone health and adrenals.
Once you've given this a go a few times I am sure that you will figure your own style, I generally don't measure when making them for myself!
Now I can't quite remember where I got this recipe from, it was from a paleo site on facebook somewhere. It is so easy to make and incredibly delicious!
Here are the easiest pancakes around - totally gluten and dairy free!
Whisk one egg with one mashed banana and 1/3C desiccated coconut.
Pour into a small frying pan and cook each side taking care when you flip it.
Top this with fresh berries and a little yoghurt (coconut yoghurt to stay with the dairy free theme) and serve.
I just have to share another of April's brilliant recipes, she sure is a master in the kitchen with this recipe being an absolute winner.
These are such delicious crackers and are so easy to make. The great thing about them is you know there are no nasties hidden in them which is common practice with store bought crackers.
This recipe was kindly given to me from a colleague of mine - April from Red Rock Fitness
These are delicious healthy muffins that are perfect for on the run. Once again it's a recipe that I have taken from mydarlinglemonthyme as she is amazing. If you're serving to fussy kids then go a bit lighter on the spices and add a little honey.
I absolutely love this recipe because it contains no flour, I took these to work both iced and uniced - they were a hit with my colleagues (I didn't tell them what the main ingredient was until after they were consumed!).
They can be made in a Thermomix or in your food processor (I have modified this slightly from the Thermomix website so instructions are for TM). I have iced these particular cupcakes with a freezedried raspberry powder and homemade icing sugar, the chocolate icing below is however delicious!
Seeded Muesli Bars - 200g sunflower seeds, 100g flaxseeds, 100g pumpkin seeds, 150g dried dates, 100g rolled oats, ¼ c honey, 1t vanilla powder, 2 eggs. Mix seeds and chopped dates in a bowl, blend half of the rolled oats up and add all oats to the mixture, add honey and mix. Beat eggs and pour into mixture combining well. Spread mixture and push down in a slice tin and bake for 20 mins at 180c. Let it cool and slice into squares.
