Nut free, berry bliss balls

Nut free, grain free, suitable for allergies, naturally sweetened (no dates) and full of healthy fats. These bliss balls are different from the usual ones with lots of dates and nuts to suit allergies but it’s also good to mix it up sometimes. I like to use raw manuka honey here for antimicrobial goodness too.

Berry ball benefits

The hemp seeds here are really undervalued in my opinion, they’re a good source of plant based fats and fiber and the sunflower seeds are a good source of vitamin E which is beneficial for the skin, so not only will they nourish your cravings they’ll nourish your body too.

You can adapt these with any other powders or blends you have in your kitchen to add extra goodness for example if you want to use these as a mid morning or afternoon energy boost then add a small 1/2 tsp of matcha powder or some collagen etc.

Low carb, grain free light waffles

So the 25th March is national waffle day, hooray!!

I love a waffle and have really got very into them recently as they’re faster to make and don’t require flipping like pancakes which is always a plus.
I dabbled in some flourless/grain free recipes and came up with this one that also happens to be diet friendly and low carb, it can also be used for a savory theme with different toppings, so is very versatile.

Each waffle serving (no toppings) is roughly 141 calories with unsweetened almond milk and less than 5g carbs.

Coconut flour types

I used a coconut flour (reduced fat kind) from Lidl which absorbs more than other flours and is different from regular coconut finely ground so make sure you’re using this brand or another one like Groovy foods from Tesco that binds well or else it won’t hold together. You’ll notice these brands have a fat content lower than 25g per 100g of product showing it’s the fat reduced kind.

Peanut butter swirl chocolate breakfast bread

This breakfast bread may not sound suitable for brekkie but it is, it even has some sneaky grated veg in there, shhh!
Wholemeal flour, secret veg, healthy fats, no refined sugar, antioxidants and so much more.

You can also adapt this with whatever flavours you like such as your favourite spices or a mix of wholegrain flours to vary up the diet which your gut likes. This can also easily be made vegan so is suitable for most diets and I like to use some pea protein in place of some flour just to mix up the macros in the recipe i.e. more protein to balance out the carbs and keeps your energy stable but if you don’t have this then just use more flour.
