Valentine’s Day ❤ is only few days away, and if you are anything like me you are probably hoping nobody will show up with a box of “absurdly processed-full of chemicals-unhealthy” chocolate 😉
Don’t get me wrong, I LOOOVE sweets, but the ‘real’ thing, which is hardly what comes in a heart shaped box. Well, I’m giving you this incredible recipe, so you can scratch that hitch for a sweet treat without the guilty feeling.
Bananas, walnuts, chocolate chips and oats. Yes, 4 ingredients only! You’ll love them! Your other half will love them…. And your kids too 😉
Rich in fiber, gluten free, processed sugar free, low fat…and very nutritious. Enjoy!! ❤ Continue reading “Nicole’s BANANA-CHOCOLATE CHIP-OAT COOKIES”
This is an incredible dessert, worth of a patisserie! Perfect to be enjoyed with a cup of tea, mid-afternoon. The nature of coconut flour allows the cake to stay moist. Most of the sweetness comes from the fruit you decide to use. My best friend’ grandma has this amazing grape-vine in her backyard, and I LOVE to take advantage of those sweet, delicious fruit! I really like the crunchiness of the seeds once they are cooked, but if you don’t particularly enjoy that you can substitute grapes with your berries of choice.
It also freezes extremely well: to enjoy it just place it in the microwave for a minute and it’ll taste like fresh out the oven! (TIP: before storing it make sure you slice and individually wrap in plastic).
Let me know what you think about it!

When I talk about my love for chocolate, people smile and say “Who doesn’t love chocolate?!”. Exactly! I’ve been on my journey of clean eating for about 7 months now, so my ‘chocolate’ fix comes from raw cacao and cocoa powder goods. Cutting processed sugar made such an incredible impact on my well-being, I have no intention going back! Still, who said healthy eating has to be boring and tasteless? I treat myself with healthy & tasty dessert ALL the time. And you can trust my word on it! This quick mug cake is the perfect fix for an unexpected dinner guest or (if you are anything like me) a night in: pjs, couch, blanket and Netflix. Oh boy!

This is the season! And who doesn’t love them?! Did you know they are considered one of the ‘world’s healthiest foods’? Cranberries provide us with an incredible array of phytonutrients, such as phenolic acids, proanthocyanidins, anthocyanins, flavonoids and triterpenoids. They also are a very good source of vitamin C, dietary fiber, and manganese, as well as a good source of vitamin E, vitamin K, copper, and pantothenic acid. Continue reading “CRANBERRIES YAY!”
