My favourite clean brownies!

I HAD to share this recipe I tried the other day by Goldfenger, these brownies taste amazing! Vegan, gluten, dairy & sugar free.

They honestly taste better than normal brownies! At the start of each week I prep my clean treats so I don't cave into sugar and chocolate cravings and these are the perfect solution!

What you'll need: 

  • 2/3 cup oat flour
  • 1/3 almond flour
  • 1/4 coconut flour
  • 2 eggs (or vegan alternative)
  • 1 banana
  • 1/3 cup milk (you can use any kind, I used almond milk)
  • 1/3 cup coconut oil
  • 1/3 cup cacao powder
  • 1 tsp vanilla powder (or vanilla essence)
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder

Method:

1. Put the oven to 175 °C

2. Melt coconut oil, add milk and let relax a little

3. Mix the oat, almond and coconut flour together and add the coconut oil with the milk in.

4. Add the rest of the ingredients into a blender, blend until combine

5. Top with whatever you feel and bake around 30-35 min

Let it cool off and store in fridge, enjoy!

 

For the chocolate sauce I used rice malt syrup & raw cacao powder & for the peanut butter sauce I mixed peanut butter with melted coconut oil.

Healthy Apple Crumble

Apple crumble... what can I say! This has been one of my favourite desserts for years. I have re-created a healthy version and to be honest I think it tastes just as good as traditional crumble and I feel great after I've eaten it!

1 tsp vanilla essence

2-3 tbsp. maple syrup/rice malt syrup

Healthy Anzac Biscuits

IMG_3880-8.jpg

Unlike traditional ANZAC biscuits that are packed full of refined sugars and processed white flour, this recipe is a delicious healthy alternative. Since originally creating the recipe I've made this updated version and added walnuts (inspired by my Grandma's ANZAC biscuits). 

This recipe makes a tasty refined sugar-free snack (can be dairy and gluten free too; use coconut oil and gluten free flour instead of spelt) and loved by many. Your little one's won't even notice the difference! 

Ingredients:

1 cup organic wholemeal spelt flour

1 1/4 cup organic oats

1/4 cup chopped walnuts

1 cup organic shredded coconut

1/4 tsp bi-carb soda

1/2 cup of melted organic butter or coconut oil 

1/4 cup water

1/4 cup + 2 tbsp honey 

1/2 tsp vanilla extract

2. Combine and mix all dry ingredients - spelt flour, oats, walnuts coconut & bi-carb

3. Then add wet ingredients - coconut oil/butter, water, honey and vanilla extract.

4. Once ingredients are combined scoop into spoonful-sized mixture and role into a ball and place on tray, this recipe makes 12 biscuits. Flatten with a fork and cook for 10-12 minutes. Enjoy!
