These chewy granola bars lean towards some elegant flavours with the help of fresh orange zest, cranberries, pistachios and cacao nibs.

You can use either regular unsalted butter or almond butter. I normally use organic honey, but for a vegan option, you can replace with equal amounts of palm sugar.

This rye bread uses equal amounts of light rye flour and white flour. However you can change the proportions as per your own liking. The dough is sticky and does not require much kneading. It is a great start towards to baking bread for the non-experienced.

It is also the first step towards moving to healthier ingredients and shifting from commercial wheat flour to more healthy and nutritious flours for baking.

Whether you have a food intolerance such as celiac disease, or you’ve decided to cut gluten from your diet in order to live a healthier life like those who follow the paleo diet, everyone deserves a tasty cookie now and again!

This gluten free, low sugar cookie recipe shows that being free from traditional ingredients doesn’t mean free from flavor! These cookies are delicious and super healthy.

They sub in coconut sugar instead of refined sugar meaning they are lower in GI than those using traditional sweeteners and they use peanut butter rather than margarine, so they are packed with healthy fats. Also, they have an excellent 3.5 grams of protein per cookie, making them the perfect post workout treat!

Moreover, as these cookies are dairy free and paleo friendly, no matter what diet you follow, these are a little bit of sweetness that everyone can enjoy.

Savory Oatmeal and Soft Cooked Egg

Serves 1
Prep time

This recipe gives a slightly different twist to the usual way that oatmeal is eaten as breakfast. I love to eat oatmeal for breakfast and I love to eat eggs for breakfast but never combined together so I wanted to give this recipe a try and I was pleasantly surprised.
Oats in general are a fantastic way to start off your day and keep you full until the afternoon. Oatmeal is high in fibre and protein giving you energy, benefiting your digestive system and great for weight loss. Eggs are also a good source of protein and help to fill you up also. The cheddar cheese and scallions add to the savoury taste of the recipe. I added in a tablespoon of raw honey as an option as I usually like a sweetness in my regular oatmeal so it worked well for me in this recipe also. This will all depend on your own personal taste.

1/4 cup of honey is the guideline in the recipe as it creates a light sweetness but feel free to add more if needed depending on your personal taste.

Energy Balls
Serves 9
Prep time
30m

This recipe requires no baking and very little preparation time. It is a gluten free and sugar free recipe, with no added oil. These are essentially litte balls of energy made up of dates, chia seeds and cocoa powder. They are 100% nut free and full of nutrients. Dates are a great source of fiber, calcium and iron, as well as Chia seeds. Chia seeds are also rich in omega 3 fats that help to fight inflammation and are beneficial for brain health, as well as being a strong source of anti-oxidants. As both the dates and chia seeds are high in fiber, it is a great recipe to prevent constipation and weight gain. The cocoa powder provides protein and adds to the flavour, as well as the pinch of salt as they make up for the lack of fat in the recipe.

Homemade Granola Recipe

Homemade Granola

This is a simply delicious breakfast recipe and one of my favourites!

It will set you up nicely for the day or alternatively can be consumed as a dessert depending on your taste. It is made with oats and various nuts and seeds which allows you to use the nuts of your choice. I used almonds, apricot kernels, sunflower seeds, and chia seeds.

Oats are high in fibre helping your digestive health, and help you to release energy slowly throughout the day curbing those cravings and aiding in weight loss. Apricot kernels contains vitamin B17 and vitamin E making it high in anti-oxidants and increasing immunity levels. Chia seeds and sunflower seeds are packed with nutrients promoting immunity and digestive health. Almonds are rich in fiber and protein and are cholestrol free. The cinnamon and apple juice compliment each other in taste and help to warm the belly on those colder mornings. The dried cranberries and black currants not only add a great flavour to the crunchy nutty texture but are also full of nutrients and anti-oxidants. The great thing about granola is that you can eat it alone as a snack, or mix it with natural yogurt and fruit or pour it on top of your oatmeal as part of your breakfast.

Choc Chia Pudding
Serves 2

This is a gluten free and vegan pudding that works well if you are looking for a lighter type dessert. A really quick recipe to prepare and to satisfy the sweet tooth while still benefiting from the goodness of the Chia seeds. Chis seeds is a superfood packed with anti-oxidants, fiber, iron and omega 3 necessary for digestive and brain bealth as well as boosting energy, lowering cholestrol and fighting inflammation.

You can use a non dairy milk of your choice to suit your own taste and it includes cocoa powder and dark chocolate for a chocolate twist. Himalayan rock salt is definitely a healthier choice over your regular table salt, as regular salt is highly processed while himalayan salt contains natural elements and minerals such as magnesium, potassium and Iron vital for bone strength, energy and blood sugar regulation. The guideline for the amount of honey is 1 tablespoon but again you can use more depending on how sweet you want it. This is one recipe that allows you to measure the ingredients to satisfy your own tastebuds.
