DIY Healthy Chocolate Chips

chocchipsname

Every time I was in my local health store, I would look at the packets of healthy choc 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.

Coffee Gummies

Simple Zucchini Slice – Grain Free

I had attempted the traditional recipes of this slice from ones found online however, firstly I don’t eat flour, so I balked at that ingredient.

I attempted to make one with coconut flour even allowing for the 1/3 cup to 1 cup of normal flour ratio as coconut flour is a whole other animal, however the result was too cakey, too dry, too sweet for a savoury dish and totally not the taste for which I was aiming.

I remember from my childhood days my cousins used to make this and I remember it being the same cakey texture. Nice for cake but not for this.

Why do you need to stop feeling your cravings?

So while my last blog post was about how raw cacao is not that great for you after all (read it here)   – here’s a recipe using cacao!

What??

It’s ok, I haven’t gone mad, it’s just that I wanted to clarify that you don’t necessarily have to give it up altogether.

Chocolate Cheesecake Fudge

Just another quick little recipe that I have featured on Instagram before but haven’t managed to post here.

In the past, if there was ever a choice of cake going around, my preference was always cheesecake. Not sure why, but it just hit the spot. The more I learn about good fats, blood sugar spikes with too much sugar and carbs and the rest of the havoc caused by wheat products (currently reading Wheat Belly by William Davis MD and having mind blown,) I am coming to understand more why my body would choose this high fat treat option. It knows best!

Macadamia Protein Bites

I’ve noticed something. If I eat three small pieces of this recipe or any of the good fat and protein combos like my white chocolate fudge or peanut butter balls, for breakfast, I am totally not hungry again until well after 12 noon.

That’s super awesome because in the past when I had fruit or oats for example, I would be hungry again an hour later. Such a pain when you have things to do.
