Everyone loves a good cookies, and these are no exception. Plus with no baking and only 4 ingredients, they are a breeze to put together. The only hard part is stopping yourself at one.
Maca powder is known for its hormone balancing properties and is said to help increase endurance when you’re working out, so you can work up a sweat for longer. I love it because it tastes like caramel, and what better way to pair that than with waffles that taste like banana bread?! Save yourself the hefty cafe prices and whip these up in your pyjamas this weekend.
Who doesn’t love a crumble?! This one is perfect when sweet peaches are in season, and are perfectly married with a crunch, crumbly topping. YAHOO! Truly is comfort food at its finest.
You can’t get a more classic dessert than the banana split with chocolate ice cream. And whilst this version doesn’t have copious amounts of chocolate sauce and whipped cream, it’s still a perfect dish to share amongst friends. Or just by yourself.
If you’ve never tried a black sapote, you’re missing out. A relative of the persimmon fruit, they are also known as chocolate pudding fruit, and don’t disappoint! They have four times as much vitamin C than an orange – great immune boosters when you’re feeling a little under the weather. Chocolate is just what the doctor ordered.
I used to love bread and butter pudding. It’s kind of a strange marriage – I don’t know of another dessert that uses bread as the main ingredient – but it just works. The versions i’m used to are loaded with no-so-great ingredients and gluten, which gives me brain fog and plenty of lovely bloating to contend with. This lighter version skips the copious amounts of butter, sugar and white bread. I also managed to squeeze extra protein in there. Tummy says YES!
This is probably my last post before I turn 30. THIRTYYYYYY. Jay Z tells me ’30’s the new 20′, but isn’t that just what people say when they get older?! To drown my sorrows / celebrate, I’m eating ice cream. Lots of it. Because it’s sugar free, dairy free, and so damn fine. No churner required….who actually owns one of those?! Someone with too much storage, thats who.
Sticky, chewy blondies with no flour, no oil, no white sugar. Crammed with heart-healthy chickpeas, these will fool even your healthiest of friends. With a low GI value of 28 – 32, chickpeas carbohydrates are broken down and digested slowly. This is helpful for weight loss (or maintenance) as it works to control appetite. Enjoy one with a cup of tea, or warm it up and add a dollop of greek yoghurt for dessert.
The health world is currently green with envy over matcha powder. Shots of the drink were the “it beverage” at New York Fashion Week, and now even dedicated coffee lovers are ditching their morning cup in favour of this earthy tea. Green tea leaves are ground to a powder, meaning you ingest the tea leaves – giving you 137 x more antioxidants than traditional green tea. It’s also know as a mental booster and helps improve stamina. Sounds awesome right? It’s even better in ice-cream. Just sayin’….
What’s better than having a raw vegan Snickers bar? One that is rich in protein, GOOD fats (to those nasty trans ones) and at the same time tasting just as delicious as the actual Snickers. Because “You’re not you when you’re hungry,” right?!
