Chocolate frosted pumpkin protein donuts

It’s coming up to my favourite time of year which is Halloween and pumpkin season. I absolutely love baking with pumpkin and eating the results!
I’m also a healthy snack fiend, I love a treat that also nourishes the body which is what I focused on when creating this recipe. So why not make your Halloween this year that bit more nourishing with this creation and use up any spare pumpkin pulp so that it doesn’t go to waste. Oh and it’s not jam packed with refined sugar meaning no energy spikes & dips.

Secret veg chocolate superfood baked oats

Yes you read that right, it’s possible to sneak veg into oats without knowing it, trust me you won’t know its there!
I did this by using a mix of cacao powder and a choc superfood blend for a chocolatey flavour plus the colour covers the courgette so nobody will see it and the bonus is that the water from the veg gets absorbed by the oats meaning it’s not soggy.
This superfood blend is quite sweet which means I didn’t need to add any extra sweetness, so this is sugar free too. I like to top it with berries for a burst of juiciness and some creamy nut butter to finish it off.

Lemon blueberry bars with sneaky beans

These bars are very handy for quick mornings or a gut friendly snack, you can bake them the day before and have these ready to go for the next few days. They’re packed with fibre and antioxidants and even have some sneaky beans in there too for the win!

Berry bar benefits

I really like these with some citrusy, tangy baobab, some plant yogurt and stewed berries. You can pack all of this into a tupperware dish to take with you to work if needed. I also like that I’m getting beans in which adds some protein without using protein powders and helps keep you full longer.
Another bonus is that they’re full of gut friendly ingredients including: chickpeas/white beans, baobab (prebiotic), oats, polyphenol packed berries and probiotic plant yogurt. A breakfast/snack that ALSO feeds your gut too! Yeah that’s my type of food =)
