I Think the thing to remember with treats, even healthy treats, is that they will never contain all the goodness fruit and veggies will, so make sure you keep them as a treat, rather than replacing the good stuff in your diet 🙂
|Minty green chocolate cream bars|
These took a little prep time, but I did totally fool my other half’s family that it was a “mint chocolate cheesecake” and they all ate it happily, until I told them there was avocado and banana in it! They said they totally couldn’t taste anything 🙂 I did alter the recipe a little bit (I didn’t have any maca, lucuma of green super food powder on hand, so I just omitted them).
These are incredible! And very very simple, I made them in about 10 minutes yesterday, and they turned out great. They are kind of biscuity and creamy, I can’t really explain it. One alteration I would make next time is adding lemon juice to them, they would go just perfect with lemon.
|Chocolate fudge brownies|
I Love the healthy chef, she has some incredible recipe ideas, honestly I could spend all my time trialing her recipes! These brownies are very similar to some I made earlier this year, mine had red kidney beans in them however (go figure, legumes in brownies!). Which meant they had a tonne of protein in them. I have a thing about hiding veggies in yummy food, I think that its just great! Sneak a little zucchini in this cake, maybe some beetroot into this…..
|Chocolate energy balls|
I swear, every wellness, nutrition and recipe blog and website out there now has some kind of recipe for cacao bliss balls. I haven’t formulated my own yet (I’m sure ill get there), but here is one very similar to the one I make. To be honest, you can’t go too wrong with these, Just add a bunch of stuff together, and refrigerate! As long as you have a base of dates (or other sweetener), coconut oil, and nuts, you can trial all sorts of different flavours. I’m keen on trying a “cherry ripe” kind….maybe ill leave that for another post 🙂
