I am slowly working my way through my recipes and tweaking them to be less full of nuts, less fats and introducing more Ray Peat friendly ingredients to offer maximum nutrition, even if it is a sweet treat. The Applesauce Four Ingredient Brownies turned out perfectly!
Good fats are great like cacao butter, coconut oil, even grass-fed normal butter, however when the fudge you are eating is equivalent to a tablespoon of fat each mouthful, well ‘the too much of a good thing’ rule may very well apply.
By the time you read this I will be in the wilds of Iceland, just spellbound by my surroundings and marveling how great it is to be alive. I did manage to whip up this new Healthy Chocolate Caramel Candy recipe before I went though.
Every time I was in my local health store, I would look at the packets of healthy chocolate chips longingly, thinking of all the yummy treats to which I could add them – like my ice cream, brownies, slices, even biscuits.
But at $24 a pop for a little packet, that seemed a little indulgent to me – I want healthy ingredients, but that’s a bit ridiculous. And the non-healthy ones were not at option.
If I’d known these Healthy Chocolate Paddle Pops were so easy to make, I would have done it years ago!
I’ve been reading lots of recipes for banana ice-cream lately with some peeps even making whole recipe books about it! And most others declaring that it is soooo good. I’ve been meaning to try it for a while, but I don’t often eat bananas as I find them too starchy and just all too much really.
I’ve bought bananas a few times and cut it up and whacked it in the freezer with the intention of giving it a go, to see if it is ‘just like normal ice-cream’ as they say but every time I would forget and 3 months later – oops the frozen bananas are a bit too rank to do anything other than throw them away. (Sorry food waste police!)
