The perfect grain free chocolate muffin with a texture very similar to a normal old school muffin with plain flour. Possible? Yes, by coincidence I made up the recipe and it was a hit!
Ever since I posted the two versions I have made of wraps – THIS ONE and THIS ONE, I have been experimenting with this type of bread, using new spices and making the bread thicker and here is a new recipe that we really like. Use it for sandwiches or burgers or as I did here, fill with this lovely beetroot salad.
You have probably seen similar ideas floating over the web recently. Spread nut butter on fruit and top with nuts and or chocolate. It’s nothing new. But I thought we could pimp up this idea and make it a bit more fun and colorful. Read on for some fun suggestions on how to make creative banana snack.
Lately I keep running in to people who are grain free but also allergic to nuts. I normally use nut flours instead of normal grain flours, but of course that does not suit everyone. So, to give more people a chance to try my recipes I try to create something different every now and then. This is a grain free, nut free and lactose free chocolate cake that also does not have any banana (which most of my other cake recipes have). Only a few ingredients – Very chocolaty and very amazing! Give it a go!
Any possibility to sneak in a bit of coconut oil into my diet is welcome. Same goes for flax seeds (linseeds). And generally I like recipes that are raw, vegan, nut free and also healthy. This is one of those! Medjool dates is the main ingredient and is the source of sweetness. I’ve read that dates are one of the healthiest sweet food there is. True? I choose to believe it and will indulge in these truffles every now and then without any guilt!
These are very popular in our house and whenever I make a batch they are gone within hours and I get asked to make more. The ingredients vary with what I have at home, but here is one version.
This was a Sunday morning recipe. I wanted to treat the family to something special for breakfast on our last Sunday before the schools started again after the holiday. The muffins turned out lovely and we ate the remaining ones on a walk in the nice weather – like a picnic. Now I need to buy more of those freeze dried strawberries so I can make them again!
In the summer it feels easy to make a fresh salad, just throwing together a bunch of fresh vegetables straight from the farmers market – or garden if you are lucky. At winter, in the dark and cold days, when we really could use a bit of extra vitamins – it tends to be more difficult. There is not as much fresh produce available and somehow it’s also not as tempting, at least at first…
I put together a few easy salads based on kale that will get your taste buds going. It’s thought as an inspiration so feel free to mix and match as you go!
Recently I have discovered how useful a hand held mixer is. These days I use mine for almost all baking and when my old one suddenly died – I bought a new one the very next day. This recipe can be done without a hand held mixer, but if you have one – use it!
