OK, of all the recipes, this healthy cola is technically not sugar-free. We ummed and aahed about putting it in, because maple syrup, although much better for you than sugar, is still a sugar.
But, and here comes the big but. For some people, a cola addiction is nearly impossible to kick, but unbelievably dangerous (even more so a diet cola addiction). So with this in mind, we have a cola substitute. But please, only use
this to kick your cola addiction. First, replace all the cola you drink with this, then cut down on the amount of maple syrup in your cola until you are left with plain old soda water.
Crisps go hand in hand with a game on the TV. Until now, that hand in hand relationship has lead to an expanding waist line.
But no more!
You can still watch the game, and get some much needed nutrients into you.
Ooh baby. Custard.
Amazing hot over freshly cooked cakes, or cold in a glass. Custard.
It even sounds delicious. Custard.
Date and banana muffins. Tasty tasty, but oh so hasty to come out the other end as a gust of wind.
Don’t plan on being in any confined spaces after eating these. We’d also advise not to have these before a first date, otherwise you’ll be dancing in your seat.
If you’ve been married for a while, then by all means eat double. You’re going to be laughing so hard tonight as you wake your spouse up yelling “thunder storm!”
All the girls from the gym are coming around for morning tea and you don’t know what to put out?
You’ve got a birthday party and don’t want to embarrass your kids by bringing out carrot sticks and celery?
Time to make some double chocolate cupcakes...
Bread is one of those staples that is hard to get over. The first time some health guru nutcase told you that bread was making you fat was like telling you that you were no longer able to eat.
But as of now, you don’t even have to give it up! In fact, eat even more bread, because it is healthy. If you have a relative who swears that seedy bread is so much classier, then throw in some seeds to make it look like the loaf on the left there.
P.S. this may be a heavier bread than you’re used to, if you want it more moist, add water (1/2 cup at a time).
Add some seeds to make it look more expensive. Just like a bakery. (optional)
There is nothing more delicious than a winter banana bread, fresh out of the oven. Unfortunately, it has been out of bounds for most health conscious individuals.
1. Blend all ingredients (except dedicated coconut and water) in a high speed blender. This could take a little while depending on the power of your blender. Ours take 2 mins in Thermomix and I stop it a couple of times to scrap the sides down.
2. Slowly add water if you need it. If mixture is a little crumbly and you want to bind it. This will depend on the dates.
3. Put your desiccated coconut into your container ready for your balls.
4. Roll each ball and add to the coconut.
5. Once all balls are rolled, put lid on the container and shake and turn container gentle.
Store in Fridge.
– you really can change the ingredients up in these. If you have nuts, add some. If you are allergic to coconut than swap it for something else and roll the balls in chia seeds or cacao powder.
-If you want to hide the seeds and make them look like plain chocolate balls, blend all seeds first to a powder and then add and mix all the other ingredients as above.
Lamingtons, the food of royalty.
The sponge will not rise much, how it goes in the oven is how it comes out of the oven.
Depending on your brand of coconut flour, your mixture can be crumbly before it goes in the oven.
If so…. just keep adding water until it comes together. Add about 1/2 cup at a time and them stir until you have the right consistency. This is why we prefer banana flour now!
We don’t know. But until we do, we’ll just be eating these...
