I have to eat healthy now so yes I still crave something sweet but I am looking for healthier alternatives for the food I ate.
Here is one – Cookies! But this version is simple and healthy.
- 1 can cheakpeas
- 1/2 cup peanut butter
- 1 chopped dark chocolate
- 4 tbsp xylitol
- 2 tsp black seasame
- 2 tbsp sunflower seeds
- 1/4 tsp baking soda
- 1/4 tsp baking powder
Blend cheakpeas and peanut butter. Add the rest of the ingredients. Stir it well.
Prepare a baking tray. On a baking paper put the portions of the dough and flaten them.
Bake about 15 minutes – 180 degrees Celcius.
I cannot stop eating them! 🙂
I had to change my diet 😦 Well It’s not sad news – I will be eating healthier but new diet means pretty much I need to avoid almost all already prepared food and cook everything for myself. I cannot eat anything that contains sugar, yeast, vinegar or wheat flour.
So I decided I will bake my own bread but with sourdough starter – NO YEAST.
How to make a sourdough starter? Easy peasy, check the instructions below 🙂
- Day One
Scald a big glass jar – 1l / 0,5l capacity. Mix well just two ingredients and put them into the jar:
- 125 ml cup rye flour
- 125 ml warm filtered water
Cover it with linen tea towel, put in a warm place. I usually do that in the morning, in the evening I stir the dough again.
2. Day Two
In the morning I add to the jar the same amount of the flour and water as yesterday and mix it Well. Set aside. Stir again in the evening or earlier it the dough is running away from the jar. 😉
3. Day Three
Feed the dough same way as on the day two. After three hours it’s ready for baking! 🙂 Notice: only when there are air bubbles in!
It is not an ordinary, simple pie. It is super healthy and suppose to help preventing or fighting cancer.
In this recipe you use whole oranges with peel which gives bitter taste to the pie. But we use the peel for a reason – the flavonoids in orange peel have the potential to inhibit the RLIP76 protein, which is linked to cancer and obesity.
More on that topic at the link.
- 3 small oranges (organic as we do not peel them)
- 4 eggs
- 3 tbsp olive oil (can be coconut oil also)
- 1 tsp lemon zest
- 80g xylitol
- 200g almond flour
- 50g banana flour
- 4 tbsp shredded coconut
- 1/2 tsp sea salt
- 1 tsp baking soda
Cook the oranges till they’re soft – it took around 1,5 hour in my case.
Blend the oranges and mix them with all the ingredients.
Grease the baking tray with olive oil or coconut oil. Bake for about 35 minutes, 180 degrees C.
Decorate with almond flakes, fruits, etc.
To be honest when I read the recipe and it said you can make great pudding using millet, I was sceptical…. untill I tried it!
It is soooo tasty 👌🏻🙂
Just cook the millet, blend it with bananas and voile!
- 2/3 cup of millet
- 400 ml coconut milk
- 2 bananas
- vanilla bean
- 2 tbsp xylitol
Rinse millet 3 times with hot water. Cook until soft with cup of coconut milk and 1/2 cup of water.
Add bananas, vanilla bean and rest of the coconut milk to the cooked millet and blend it. It takes a while till It’s really smooth.
Sprinkle with chia seeds and bon apetit!
