Made from chia seeds, cocount oil, cocoa powder and honey, it provides so many nutrients required for your daily diet. From the anti-oxidants sourced from Chia seeds to the antibacterial properties contained in coconut oil, this is a great recipe to boost your immune system. The banana, cocoa powder, dessicated coconut, honey and rock salt create a delicious sweet taste and also provides extra anti oxidants and minerals such as iron, potassium and zinc, crucial for a healthy heart and digestive system.
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.
One word- Yummy!! This is a delicious and fudgey gluten free and dairy free recipe. It is so straight forward to whip up and not short of flavour and texture. It is made from buckwheat gluten free flour which is rich in protein and fibre as well as calcium and phosphorus aiding digestion and weight loss. Cocoa powder contains anti-oxidants for a strong immune system and cocount oil has natural antiviral and antibacterial elements fighting against infections. Himalayan rock salt is a more natural alternative to regular table salt and helps to regulate the water content throughout the body.
This is a highly recommended alternative recipe to use instead of regular flour chocolate brownie recipes. It requires no time in the kitchen, just a mixing bowl, an oven and an appetite!
This is a pan cooked version to create a crunchy and toasty chocolate granola recipe. You can load this healthy cereal with your favourite nuts and seeds and add some cocoa powder for a chocolate edge. My favourites are almonds, apricot kernels, sunflower seeds and chia seeds. These nuts are full of good fats and omega 3 as well as healthy nutrients keeping your digestive system and immunity levels in tact. I include chia seeds into as many meals as possible, as these tiny little seeds are a wonderful super food known for their anti-oxidant properties and contain minerals such as Iron and zinc as well as fibre and protein.
Oats are a heart healthy wholegrain that help to lower cholestrol levels and are packed with fiber for our digestive health. Cinnamon helps create that toasty flavour and fills up your kitchen with a lovely aroma that gets your belly rumbling! I refer to cinnamon as a super spice and love to add a dash of it into my recipes due to its natural healing abilities as well as its versatility to be used in both savoury and sweet dishes.
Coconut oil is one of my preferred choice of oils due to its antiviral and antibacterial properties, boosting our immune system and acting as a natural anti-oxidant.
The use of blackcurrants and cranberries give a lovely soft texture in contrast with the crunchy nut taste as well as adding extra anti-oxidants in their fruity flavours.
This is a flavorful sugar-free creamy hot drink perfect for the mornings and is a fantastic alternative to coffee. Not only does cocoa powder mix easily with hot liquids for instant taste but it also contains many minerals such as iron, zinc and magnesium which is essential for a healthy immune system. Cocoa powder provides a good source of anti-oxidants and fiber benefiting our digestive health.
The combination of coconut milk with the vanilla and cinnamon gives a lovely warm taste and cinnamon is a super spice that not only satisfies our tastebuds but is one of the healthiest spices around. It reduces risk of heart disease, lowers blood sugar levels and fights against inflammation. And these are only to name a few!
So whether you are looking for a healthy pick me up in the mornings or just to cosy up on the couch and relax, this is the recipe to see you through.
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.
Energy Balls can be eaten for breakfast, consumed as a snack throughout the day or a quick fix after a session in the gym. This recipe is packed with goodness and is super quick to prepare. Oats contain lots of fibre and protein and help you stay fuller for longer during the day.
