IMG_2457IMG_2455

Scones are one of my favourite foods so I was so happy when I made these grain free scones. I added dark chocolate chips as I just love chocolate in everything, but this can be substituted for blueberries or anything you want. They taste like real scones only better, and you know that they’re good for you so it’s guilt free. I hope you enjoy them as much as I did so here’s the recipe. ๐Ÿ™‚

Makes approx 9 scones

Ingredients:

1 3/4 cup of Almond Flour

3 tbsp of Coconut Flour

4 tbsp of Honey

1 egg

4 tbsp of Almond Milk (or any other milk)

3 tbsp melted Coconut Oil

1/2 tsp baking powder

1/4 tsp salt

1/2 cup of Dark Chocolate Chips

Method:

1. Preheatย oven to 180C.

2. Grab a large mixing bowl and add the almond and coconut flour, honey, egg, melted coconut oil, baking powder, salt and 3 tbsp of almond milk.

3. Mix until a loose dough forms then fold in the chocolate chips.

4. Line a baking tray with baking paper, take a heaped tablespoon of mixture and place on the baking tray, shaping it to look like a scone. Continue until there is no mixture left. (You can make the scones as big or as small as you want)

5. Once all scones are shaped use the remaining tablespoon of almond milk and brush over the scones for a glaze.

6. Place in the oven for 15 to 20 minutes or until golden brown.

Enjoy!

Oatmeal is my favourite meal to have for breakfast and I have it almost every morning, but sometimes I like to mix it up. This morning I decided to add a teaspoon of cacao powder before I cooked it and oh my god it tasted so good! I also added banana for some sweetness and they went so well together. Here’s the recipe ๐Ÿ™‚

Ingredients:
3/4 cup of raw oats
1/2 medium banana
1 tsp of cacao powder
1 tsp of stevia
Water

Method:
1. Measure out 3/4 cup of oatmeal and pour into a bowl.
2. Fill up with water until there is a small layer of water over the oats.
3. Add the cacao powder and mix together.
4. Put in the microwave for 2 minutes or until cooked.
5. Take it out of the microwave and mix in the stevia.
6. Chop the banana into coin sized pieces and layer over the top of the oatmeal.
Enjoy!

Hot chocolate is one of my favourite things so I was so happy when I first made this. It tastes like regular hot chocolate and has a delicious rich chocolate flavour while still being good for you! Cacao is rich in antioxidants containing 30x more than blueberries and is an excellent source of iron and magnesium. Here’s the recipe ๐Ÿ™‚

Ingredients

1 heaping tsp of raw cacao powder

1 cup of almond milk

1 tsp of stevia

Method

1. Pour almond milk into your cup and put in the microwave for about 1 minute, or until desired temperature.

2. Take the cup out of the microwave once desired temperature is reached and put in the cacao powder, mixing until it completely dissolves. (More cacao powder can be added for a richer taste)

3. Add the stevia and mix until completely dissolve. (More stevia can be added for sweetness if desired)

Enjoy!

I went to a cafe for lunch today called the Bare Bones Society and had this delicious Quinoa salad. It was so tasty and I can say it was the best salad I’ve ever tasted. It had quinoa, vegetables, potato, nuts and seeds and a creamy cashew sauce and these ingredients went so well together. I just thought I’d share this to give people some inspiration for making salads and it seems pretty simple to make so I’ll have a list of the ingredients included in this recipe below ๐Ÿ™‚

Ingredients:

Quinoa, roasted vegetables, cabbage, roasted potato, nuts and seeds and a creamy cashew sauce.

Healthy Lemonade Ice Block

So I made these ice blocks today and they turned out to be delicious! The lemon flavour makes it so refreshing and perfect for a summer’s day. With only a few ingredients they are so simple to make and they freeze in only a few hours. Here’s the recipe ๐Ÿ™‚

Note: for this recipe you will need ice block containers. Below is a picture of different kinds, mine is very similar to the one on the top right but any will work for this recipe.

Ingredients:

2 lemons

water

frozen berries

2 tsp Stevia (optional to make it sweeter)

Method:

1. Grab a large mixing bowl or jar to hold the liquid and pour about 5 cups of water into it.

2. Squeeze the juice of 2 lemons into the water, add the stevia and mix together.

3. Grab the ice block container and pour the liquid into one compartment, leaving room at the top so it doesn’t overflow when the berries are added.

4. Add a few berries into the same compartment and put the ice block handle over the compartment.

5. Continue this until all of the compartments are filled.

6. Wait a few hours or until they’re frozen and enjoy!

Tasty Snack

sauce

I thought Iโ€™d share these fabulous spreads with you as they are healthy and are so delicious. They are a great substitute for spreads such as Nutella or peanut butters packed with other hidden ingredients. My favourite is the peanut cacao spread which only contain the ingredients cacao and peanut and is perfect to use on toast or with fruits and vegetables.

A healthy snack that I love to eat is a cut up apple with the paste as it tastes amazing and adds another element to the snack. It is so filling so you wonโ€™t feel like eating anymore and is so delicious.
