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!

Chocolate Granola

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.

Raw Chocolate Fudge Balls

Prep time

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

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.

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.
