Cookie time

It´s Friday and what better than do a batch of cookies to enjoy during the weekend?

We turned to our dearest food blog Happy Health Blog for some inspiration! These cookies are easily made, and even more easily enjoyed!

Ingredients (approximately 12 cookies)
5 fresh dates mashed or blended into a paste
3 tbsp. almond butter
1/4 cup coconut oil
2 cups oats
1/4 cup oat milk
1/2 cup raisins
3 tbsp. coconut sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1,5 tsp cinnamon

Preheat the oven to 150°C and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Add all the the ingredients (except the raisins) to a bowl and mix until well combined. Then add the raisins and scoop dough into balls on the baking sheet, flatten the balls slightly with the palm of your hand. Bake for about 15-18 minutes. They should be light brown on the bottom. Let them cool before munching! Enjoy!

Gluten free seed crackers

Bread is a big part of this household, but as we all know, too much of something is never good (at least not for my stomach). So I was happy to come across Happy Health Blog´s seed crackers,  and I guess I might not be the only one being happy to find a yummy substitute for bread? 

Fun fact:
Seeds are extremely beneficial for our health and sesame seeds that is part of this recipe, helps to improve heart health, digestion, improves your sleep and reduces inflammation.

So, get ready to fill the kitchen cabinet with these yummy, seed-filled crackers.

1,5 cup flax seeds
1,5 cup pumpkin seeds
1 cup sunflower seeds
1 cup sesame seeds
3,5 cups boiling hot water
1/4 cup coconut oil
2 cup corn flour
1 tsp salt + some to sprinkle before baking

Start by heating the oven to 200°C. Place all the ingredients in a large bowl, pour the boiling hot water last and mix to combine. Leave for 15 minutes for flax seeds to soften and bind everything together.

Spread the mixture onto a parchment paper lined tray using a large spatula. Use another parchment paper on top to spread out the mixture thin. No higher than 5 mm. Score the mixture by pressing a sharp knife down to create lines. This will make it easier to break into evenly sized crackers after cooking.

Sprinkle with some flaky sea salt. Bake for 25-30 minutes, but remember to watch the crackers carefully the last 5 minutes, they can burn quickly. Especially if you have an uneven oven. Remove to a rack to cool and store in an airtight container.

Be Inspired

Getting them greens in

We all heard it before: eat more greens. Vegetables are the foundation of a healthy diet and your fountain of youth (you know the drill). But getting them greens in is easier said than done if you ask me.

Vegetables are incredibly rich in nutrients and antioxidants, which boost your health and help fight off diseases. In other words, true power food! Pretty awesome, right? Saying that you will start to eat more veggies is easy, but when it comes to it, many of us fall short of our daily needs.

We therefore give you five tips on how to be getting them greens in. We´re not promising a miracle, but maybe you’ll get inspired to lure in some more.

Throw them in a mixer
Adding greens to your smoothie is maybe the simplest way eat more vegetables. Maybe you´re not a hard-core green-smoothie lover, but simply adding a handful of spinach does the trick. Take a look at our smoothie recipes, we got tons of yummy inspiration.

Boost your brekkie
Lots of breakfast dishes are seriously better with some greens. Don´t agree? Let’s give you some examples: avocado toast, scrambled eggs with spinach and tomatoes, sandwich with crème cheese topped with carrots and so much more. There is no limit!

Greens for starters
Many of us usually have salad or veggies on our dinner plate, but start eating what we find the tastiest first. Which often means that the veggies are eaten lastly and most likely to be left over too. Why not serve your veggies as a starter? That way you make sure to have eaten them before you get too full AND you end up having a two-course dinner, win win!

Replace your chips
Have you ever tried kale chips? Easy peasy to prepare and so yummy. And best of all; way healthier than potato chips and that way you get some kale into your system too. Take a look at our recipe here.

Salute the snack
Ok, we are true snack lovers, as you know, and would never in our wildest dreams suggest celery instead of chocolate. Nevertheless, cutting up some veggies (and fruits) and bring along to work, school or just have them in your handbag, available when hunger kicks in, is a great way to add some extra greens into your diet and help you when hunger strikes.

So, best of luck! See you on the other side.

And remember, everything is difficult before it becomes easy. Small steps in the right direction are better than a huge leap you’ll stumble on.

What better way to start your day than with a little chocolate? We got your attention now didn’t we? Make your breakfast dreams come true with these yummy vegan chocolate pancakes. 

We have fallen completely in love with Happy Health Blog, and Natalie, the talented powerwoman behind the blog was kind enough to let us share the recipe to these fluffy and delicious pancakes. And lets just say: if you thought you knew how to make awesome pancakes, you never made these. Perfect for weekends or whenever you want to surprise a loved one with a yummy brekkie.

Ingredients (about 10-15 pancakes)
3/4 cup gluten-free oat flour
1/2 cup brown rice flour
1/4 cup buckwheat flour
1/4 potato starch
2 tbsp tapioca flour
1/3 cup cocoa powder
2 tsp baking powder
A pinch of sea salt
1 ripe banana
1 1/2 tbsp melted coconut oil + some more for cooking
1 tsp vanilla extract

Toss all ingredients in a blender, blend until well combined. Over medium heat, pour 1/4 cup of pancake batter on a well-oiled pan. I use unscented coconut oil. When bubbles start to form on the surface of the pancake, flip and cook it for a minute on the other side. Garnish with berries and vegan Nutella. Enjoy!

1/4 cup plant-based milk of your choice
2 tsp. vanilla extract
2 cup all-purpose flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. baking powder
2 tsp. cream of tartar (this gives them their signature taste – don’t leave this ingredient out!)
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 c cane sugar
2 tsp. cinnamon

Pre-heat your oven to 180 degrees celcuis and cream together the brown sugar, coconut oil, and pumpkin. Mix in almond milk and vanilla extract and then add your dry ingredients — flour, baking soda, baking powder, cream of tartar, and salt. Roll your dough into balls then roll it in a bowl of cinnamon and sugar to cover the dough. Place each piece onto a baking sheet that has been oiled or lined with parchment paper. Bake between 8-10 minutes. Enjoy!

Cookies are always a good idea

On these especially bleak Mondays of winter, we suggest whipping up a batch of cookies for yourself, or someone you love.

We all love cookies, right? So why not start the week with something you love? And cookies don’t necessarily mean tons of sugar, there are other options out there, made in no time! Like these ones, that we came across on Deliciously Ella´s blog.

1,5 cups of almonds
1 cup of dates (about 12 dates)
1 tbsp. chia seeds
3 tbsp. unsweetened almond milk
Dark chocolate (vegan if preferred) and/or raisins

Preheat the oven to 180 degrees. While the oven is heated, simply add all the ingredients in a blender and mix. Then mix in pieces of dark chocolate and/or raisins. When ready roll small balls and add them to baking sheet and squish them down to cookies. Bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes. Happy Monday!
