You know me at this point, I am addicted to anything in the shape of a ball, hehehe.

So I think eating whole foods is the best way to go, buuuuuut I am a big "no waste" person and I have a large tub with pea protein in my cupboard that I have to use up which resulted in these beauties!

They certainly do not disappoint in flavour nor texture at the same time they're a great healthy, vegan, protein and energy snack! They really taste like brownie batter!

Enjoy!

- How simple is simple, you say.

Extremely simple, nuts of choice for the creamyness and then dates for the sticky, fudgey and sweetness! That's how simple it is! The only tricky part is that you have to have the patience to mix the nuts until smooth (or you can use already made nut butter). ;)

Not only easy to make but very healthy, the ingredients are pretty self explorinatory! But the taste, the taste, wow, you'll never want anything else than this ever again!

I'd love to hear what you thought if you try it out! Enjoy!

Super simple, healthy, whole food, vegan, 2 ingredient salted caramel fudge


Serving 12 pieces     Prep time: 15 minutes

Freezer time: 20 minutes     Total time: 35+ minutes

Ingredients



  • 1 dl / 60g / 2 oz nuts of choice (I found cashews being the absolute best)

  • 6 / 50g / 1,75 oz dates

  • Salt and vanilla


Directions



  1. Mix the nuts until smooth as nut butter in a food processor or powerful mixer. Add the dates, salt and vanilla. I like to peel my dates as the skin of those is not stuck to the date at all but that's completely optional.

  2. Transfer to a big piece of parchment paper and shape it a square, around 1,5 cm / 2/3 inches thick. Let stiffen in the freezer for around 20+ minutes, cut into 12 even pieces! Enjoy! It's best straight out the freezer as it melts in your mouth... Omnomnom...

  • Optionally chocolate for dipping

  2. Add the almond flour and knead/mix with your hands until you get a firm marzipan like almond paste. If it's too loose you can add some more almond flour, one tbsp at the time until you reach your wanted texture.

  3. Divide into 12 equal pieces and roll into an egg shape. Optionally mix/knead in coloring or dip in chocolate. If you dip them in chocolate let them harden in the freezer for 5-10 minutes. Enjoy! Happy Easter everyone!!

I promise you this recipe will definitely satesfy anyone's sweet tooth! It has all the elements, salty caramel, crunchy roasted buckwheat and nuts and also some chocolate, just because chocolate, duuuuh!

This whole recipe started with me remembering how I absolutely loved caramelized almonds as I grew up, a true childhood memory! I wanted to recreate those moment and started experimenting!

I caramelized nuts, roasted légumes, lots of different things and suddenly I thought why not make a candy bar out of it? Voilà! Refined sugar-, gluten-free, vegan, some that will satesfying your sweet tooth but not spike your blood sugar!

I made this as a part of an easter collaboration together with Green girl eats! Enjoy!

[recipe]

Refined sugar-free, oil free, candy bar caramelized buckwheat nut crunch bars with chocolate drizzle


Serving: 10 medium bars     Time: 1 hour

Ingredients



  • 125g / 2,5 dl / 1 cup of mixed nut and seeds of choice

  • 1,25 dl / 1/2 cup buckwheat

  • 3 tbsp coconut sugar

  • 3 tbsp honey or other liquid sweetener of choice

  • Optionally a pinch of salt and cinnamon

  • Optionally chocolate for drizzling


Directions



  1. According to recommendations from multiple sources I recommend rinsing your buckwheat for a couple of minutes in boiling warm water and then in cold water for half a minute due to buckwheat containing a red coloring that can irritate your mucous membranes! It's super quick and easy. It only takes a couple of minutes to do.

  2. Preheat your oven to 150ºC / 300ºF. Dry roast your nuts and buckwheat for 10-15 minutes as it's getting warm. Once they start to become golden take them out and let cool.

  3. In a small sauce pan, with a thick bottom, combine the sugar and liquid sweetener over medium heat. Be careful, sugar can reach extremely high temperatures and can burn if you have it on too high heat! "Boil" until you can pour around a 1/2 tsp of the mixture into a glass of ice-cold water, it stiffens and you can roll a pretty hard ball out of it.

  4. Stir in the spices, nuts and buckwheat. Transfer over to a mold lined with parchment paper (greasing it won't work!). Carefully flatten and press down. Don't burn yourself! Let harden in room temperature or in the fridge. Cut into 10 equal bars dip in or drizzle over some chocolate, let harden. Devour!!

Swedishness overload! This is probably the most typical swedish treat known to existence! This is creamy, sweet, choclately with a mocha twist... *drooling*

This is a healthy, whole food, oil and butter/margarine free, fruit sweetened (= refined sugar-free) version of one of Sweden's most loved sweets, chokladbollen! They really taste like the real thing, not like your regular raw/date energy balls! Omnomnom! So easy to make too!

You really should try this recipe it's so good and I must say this is my favourite thing ever! I promise you all, Swedes just adore these beauties and not without reason...

I'm so happy with the result even my brother randomly took one as I was rolling them in the coconut and later asked, with the sound of doubt in his voice, if they were healthy. He really thought it was the regular "unhealthy" kind and literally couldn't taste any difference what so ever! I think that's proof enough to show they really taste like the original! ;)

Frill is an amazing UK-based company that is just starting to sell their products in Sweden as well. They're calling their ice cream "The frozen smoothies" and there's not really any better explanation than that!

They are at the moment only carrying three different flavours but I'd personally love to more. Also I'd like to see more stores in Sweden selling it as there are one in Malmö, which is where I got mine, and the rest are situated in Stockholm. The only real "complaint" I have is that I'd love the Intense Chocolate to have some pieces of some sort like cacao nibs, that would just be pure heaven!

Hope you find this review helpful!

IMG_1705 2IMG_1625 2IMG_1647 2

Taste rating: 7,5/10 


Intense Chocolate, 7,5/10

The chocolate has an intense chocolate taste but also a kind of carob like flavour to it too, even if it doesn't contain any. It is extremely good but doesn't taste exactly like your regular chocolate ice cream due to that, but it still carries the vital creamyness and chocolately flavour. I am being a bit harsh on it rating wise but I am comparing it to a regular very chocolately ice cream which isn't really fair. I REALLY liked it and will be buying it again, soon!

The Bursting Berry, 8/10

was so refreshing but creamy at the same time! It has an intense berry flavour but it doesn't become sour at all, like some berry ice creams can, it is fruity but still sweet. I think this tasted very much like an intenser and more genuinely fruity Twister, a childhood memory of mine. Really liked it, so refreshing and it has a nice balance between fruity and sweet so I'll definitely be purchasing it again.

The Refreshing Green, 6/10

was refreshing, but I actually found that the Berry was even more refreshing. You can't taste the vegetables really, not compared to many green smoothies and juices as you might expect it to taste like. It not as intense flavour wise compared to the other two but it has a mellow greenish tropical vibe to it. It makes sense as it contains a significant amount of pineapple and mango. :) It also tastes similar to the childhood lollipop Twister, but more subtle. I liked it but I probably won't buy it again since I liked the other better and I think I'll be making green smoothies instead to satisfy my needs.

Texture rating: 7/10


It only takes around 3-5 minutes to thaw and it doesn't melt, it stays soft, but just solid enough, and creamy for a very long period of time. It basically stays in that "perfect not too hard nor not too melted" state forever, it is mostly due to the added fibers.

It's very creamy but not like in the way it tastes "fatty", which sometimes is nice in ice cream, which isn't bad if you ask me. The texture is absolutely on point if you ask me, even though I absolutely adore chocolate bits and such in my ice cream. I wouldn't say it's like nice cream creamy at all, it's like proper good sorbet creamy if you know what I mean.

Value rating: 8/10


I found it for 59kr / £5,25 / $6,55 / £6,15 which is quite expensive for most but not too bad compared to Ben & Jerry and other "health food" ice cream. I think it delivers and the price isn't too bad as you don't eat this everyday.

Nutrition rating 9,5/10


As it says on the package: "The frozen smoothie". It literally just is fruit + some added fiber, soyalectin and some natural flavouring. It is not completely "whole food" but to be honest added fibers nor soyalectin and natural flavours do any harm to your body in any way (as long as your body can handle the fiber 35g/pint.) It also is very low in calories, around 350/pint, outstanding source of fiber and also offers a great amount of vitamins. No added sugars, fats or anything like that!

Final rating: 9/10


All flavours deliver a great amount of amazing flavour more or less! They're super healthy, reasonably priced and definitely a spectacular alternative to regular ice cream!

You know me. I like my chocolate very much. What do I like just as much? Banana bread and what could make it even better? Coconut!

Well, I actually am the kind of person who buys too many bananas purely so I can make banana bread with them once they ripen, hehe. Anyone else? No? Okey... Hahahaha.

Vegan friendly, healthy, whole food, fruit sweetened Tiramisu


Serving: 6 large portions     Prep time: 15 minutes + 30 minutes + 15 minutes

Cooking time: 30 minutes     Total time: 1 h 30 minutes (+ refrigeration time)

Ingredients


For the cake (you can use any kind of sponge cake like cake, I recommend Feastingonfruit's vanilla cake if you want it to be vegan)

  • 75g / 3 heaping tbsp apple sauce

  • 1 dl / 1/3 + 1 tbsp milk of choice

  • 12 pitted dates

  • 1/2 tsp vanilla essence/extract

  • 2 large organic, free range eggs

  • 3 dl / 1 1/4 cup flour of choice (I used whole grain spelt flour)

  • 2 tsp baking powder

  • Optionally a small pinch of salt


For the "mascarpone" cream

  • 3 dl / 1 1/4 cup / 175g / 6,2 ounces cashews

  • 2 dl / 2/3 cup + 3 tbsp milk of choice

  • 4 pitted dates

  • A splash/ small pinch of vanilla essence/extract

  • Optionally a small pinch of salt



  • 2,5 dl / 1 cup of SUPER strong brewed coffee (Don't skimp on the coffee, it's an essential part of the dish)

  • Cocoa or cacao powder for dusting


Directions


The cake

  1. Preheat the oven to 175ºC.

  2. Blend the apple sauce, milk, dates and vanilla smooth in a blender, food processor or in a separate bowl using a hand mixer. Mix the dry ingredients separate in a large bowl.

  3. Mix the eggs until pretty much only foam remains in a separate bowl. Add the date mixture to the dry ingredients and mix until combined. Fold the eggs into the batter, be careful you want the cake to be as fluffy as possible!

  4. Pour the batter into a cake form, mine was 20x20cm / 8x8 inches. Bake the cake for 25 minutes or until you can insert a toothpick and it comes out clean. Let cool before the assemble!


The "mascarpone" cream

  1. Soak the cashews in almost boiling water for 30 minutes.

  2. Mix the rest of the ingredients smooth in a powerful mixer or food processor. It might take a couple of minutes, stay patience.


The assemble

  1. Chose a servings dish/dishes of choice. Cut the cake into suitable shapes and sizes depending on your dish. I cut mine sideways too to achieve, in my opinion, the right thickness.

  2. Pour the coffee onto a medium-sized plate. Dip each side of your cake pieces for around 2-3 seconds, until fully soaked but not for so long so they stars to fall apart.

  3. Line the bottom of your dish with soaked cake. Spread half your cream onto the cake layer. Repeat the coffee soaked cake layer and spread the last of your cream onto of that. Last but not least completely cover it with cocoa powder like the Italians do it. Optionally let it set in the fridge for at least 1 hour just to let the flavours to set or serve immediately.

Taste rating: 9/10

This chocolate has a cocoa percentage of 70% but it seriously tastes like a rich 60% Belgian chocolate! So rich, creamy, not too sweet but definitely still sweet enough! My dad who isn't the biggest fan of 70% chocolate absolutely loved this! It is not bitter at all but at the same time very rich and can satisfy anyone with a sweet tooth.

Snap and melt rating: 7/10
Melts like a charm in your mouth. The pieces are rather thick which has its pros and cons. I personally like my chocolate to be thinner for that extra snap but this chocolate still delivers a lovely snap even though the thickness!

Once you take a bite it doesn't melt immediately in your mouth like some more sugary and fatty chocolates do but it doesn't take ages neither. I find its melting speed to be pretty much perfect!

Value rating: 8/10

35kr / $3,99 / €3,7 / £3,2 for 180g & 6,35 oz is a pretty good deal for such terrific chocolate that also is fair trade which is amazing!

Quality and ethicality 9/10

The quality is really something special, especially for its price class. I love how it's fair trade and that the company's/bar's mission is to end slavery in the cocoa industry!

Final rating: 8,5/10


I give this chocolate a solid 9/10, will definitely be buying this again! Magnificent taste and texture, also great value!

I find it funny how they divide the bar into unequal pieces to resemble the unequal share of money in the cocoa/chocolate industry. I do like the idea but I got to be honest and say that I makes it quite difficult to break a part. Especially when the chocolate bar is as thick as it is. I actually had to bite of pieces of the whole bar due to that. Well everything can't be absolutely perfect!

Definitely recomend buying this! <3

IMG_6159 (4) One of my brothers just absolutely loves peanut butter cups, so I thought: "What if I could make them healthier?" So I did. They only take a couple of minutes to make and they're a good alternative to people who love peanut butter cups but want it to be for example vegan or just healthier. IMG_20170323_221350_032.jpg It's a super quick recipe and it's just to make you start thinking - maybe I can make my other favourite sweets a bit more healthy?

Dark chocolate peanut butter cups

Servings: 18 peanut butter cups     Prep time: 10 minutes Cooling time: 10 minutes     Total time: 20 minutes

Ingredients

  • 150g chocolate of choice
  • Around 135g of nut butter of choice
Optionally some other fillings like my delicious chia jam, nuts, dried or fresh fruit of choice! <3

Directions

  1. Melt the chocolate in the microwave or over simmering water. Lay out all the cups. Evenly coat the entire cup with around a teaspoon of the melted chocolate. Let the chocolate set in the fridge for a couple of minutes.
  2. Take out the chocolate and put 1/2-3/4 tbsp nut butter in each cup. I could roll my nut butter in my hand into small balls. If you'd like the nut butter a bit sweeter just mix it with a couple of dates in a food processor.
  3. Now scoop out the remaining chocolate and make sure all of the nut butter is completely covered with chocolate. Let harden in the fridge and devour!
*I recommend putting small paper praline or paper muffin cups in a mini muffin tin, it makes things a lot easier and less messy. [/recipe] [gallery ids="933,934,935" size="full"]

  IMG_1192 2 This has been circulating around the internet for quite some time so I decided to make some myself! I made three different kinds just to give some inspiration. The combinations are absolutely endless! Mine are 100% fruit sweetened, no added sugar, only 3 base ingredients. All the goodness! The chia seeds also bring an extra healthy fats to your breakfast, pancakes or what ever you have it with! Ops! It doesn't contain anything to prevent it from molding and such like regular jam! So it's important to keep it in the fridge and eat it within a week or less. You can also freeze it if you fancy! Enjoy!

Buckwheat? Sounds so complicated and expensive, right? It's actually not and promise I'm not saying that for trying to be one of those "vanilla bean matcha chai toffe coffe oats with cacao nibs, caramilez star fruit ETC." people!

To the point, Hanna! Okey, this actually is one of my most sucessful recipes and I am just so happy to present to you the recipe for these chrunchy energy packets filled with delciiiiouuus chocolatelly goodness. Only four whole food ingredients!

I just love how the buckwheat gives it a chrunchy, chunky feel at the same time not being too chrunchy and hard to eat. The apricot and chocolate combonation is also one of my favourites. Do I need to say more?

Enjoy!

Buckwheat crunch chocolate apricot rawish balls


Servings: 18 balls

Prep time: 10 minutes     Total time: 10 minutes

Ingredients



  • 2 dl / 150g / 5 1/3 ounce buckwheat

  • 16 / 125g / 4 1/2 ounces dried apricots

  • 3 tbsp of cocoa or cacao powder

  • 2 tbsp nut butter of choice

  • Optionally a pinch of salt and vanilla


Directions



  1. According to recomendations from multiple sources I recomend rinsing your buckwheat for a couple of minutes in boiling warm water and then in cold water for half a minute due to buckwheat containing a red coloring that can irritate your mucous membranes! It's super quick and easy. It only takes a couple of minutes to do.

  2. But all the ingredients except the buckwheat in a food processor or strong mixer until it forms a smooth paste/dough.

  3. Add the buckwheat and  mix in on low speed. Roll into balls and voila! Deliciousness!

Ingredients

  • 10 / 125g / 4,5 ounces pitted dates
  • 1-2 tbsp cocoa powder
  • Optionally a small pinch of salt and 1/4 top vanilla extract/essence
  • Optionally 40g of chocolate or almond flour for coating .

Directions

  1. Take 18 of hazelnuts and set aside for later use. Mix the rest until smooth in a food processor or powerful mixer. Preferably mix them as smooth as nut butter, but if you are not able to obtain with the food processor/mixer you're using that's fine.
  2. Add the dates, cocoa powder, vanilla and salt in a food processor until a dough is formed.
  3. Roll the dough into 18 small balls (around 15g each). Take one hazelnut and press into  each and every ball and roll into a ball again. Heat up the chocolate in the microwave (do not burn the chocolate!) Dip your Ferrero balls and let the excess chocolate drip of. Put them on a plate and let the chocolate harden. Optionally sprinkle them with chopped hazelnuts before hardening completely. You can roll the balls in almond flour or pulverized hazelnuts before coating or just skip the chocolate and just coat with nut flour.
  4. Let them cool in the fridge until the chocolate has hardened. Enjoy!
