Nut Milk

People mocked my nut milk bag purchase despite this being something I’d wanted to buy for AGES but had never quite gotten around to it. I have to say buying this was literally one of the single most exciting days of my life, only trumped by the fact that I actually made my own nut milk quickly a few days later!!

Peanut Butter Cups

I’ve definitely got a sweet tooth and every now and again I just need to have something scrummy to eat that feels a little bit naughty. So here’s a recipe that I’ve found helps and doesn’t take that long to make! Sweeeeeeeet!

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup smooth 100% peanut butter (i.e. no palm oil)
  • 1/2 – 1/ 3 cup of dessicated coconut
  • 1tbsp pure / raw honey
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 cup of dark chocolate (anything 70% cocoa or above)
  • a handful of pistachios

Method:

  • Put the peanut butter, coconut oil, honey and coconut in a blender and mix until completely smooth
  • Beat the pistachios until they are small crumbs
  • Melt the chocolate and then add the pistachios and mix
  • Pour the peanut butter mixture into cupcake cases.
  • Pour the chocolate mixture on to the top of each base.
  • Pop in the freezer for 30 minutes for them to set.

You can store these in the freezer and take out a couple of minutes before you want to eat it. YUM!

If you’re not a fan of peanut butter you can substitute with almond butter 🙂

Paleo Pancakes

Ingredients:

  • 2 – 3 tbsp coconut oil
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup raw / pure honey
  • 1 1/2 tbsp vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup of almond milk, coconut milk or water
  • 1 cup of ground almonds (or almond flour – they’re the same thing)
  • 1/3 cup of coconut flour (if you can’t find this, buy dessicated coconut and grind to make flour)

Method:

1. Put the almond and coconut flour into a bowl and mix.

2. Put the eggs, honey, vanilla extract and almond / coconut / water into a blender and blitz until it’s a smooth mixture.

3. Gradually pour this mixture onto the flour mixture and stir in together to make the pancake batter.

4. Place a 1 – 1 1/2 tbsp of coconut oil into a frying pan and heat (don’t have it too hot otherwise you will burn your scrummy pancakes!), when ready add some of the batter to make your first pancake. When bubbles start to appear in the top of the pancake it’s time to turn it. Once flipped cook for another 2 minutes and then serve.

Serving options:

Drizzle a tsp of raw honey on top of the pancake

Sprinkle some dessicated coconut on top of your pancakes

Serve with scrabbled eggs (or any other type of egg you prefer!)

Peanut Flapjacks

These are my favourite! I found it soooooo hard giving up eating toast for breakfast every day (that’s now a 1 off weekend day treat for me these days!) but these amazing little flapjacks have been a life saver!

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup peanut butter (or almond butter for paleo option) – Make sure you use 100% peanut butter and not one with palm oil in it
  • 2 1/2 cups oats
  • 1/3 cup of honey – Make sure you use 100% raw / pure honey

Method:

1. Put the peanut butter and honey in to a bowl and mix together

2. Gradually add the oats until it is all mixed together and is gelled together but not too sticky

2.5 If you want to add extra ingredients like berries then add them at this stage. I just prefer the peanut version 🙂

3. Spread the mixture into a tray and pop in the fridge overnight.

4. In the morning once the mixture has solidified chop up into small bite size pieces and then they are ready for breakfast or as a healthy snack during the day.
