No bake, rich, dark chocolate torte made with natural ingredients and can be refined sugar, gluten & dairy free!
Such an easy dessert with nutrition, fiber and rich chocolate goodness, plus you can make this a head of time and bring to room temp before serving. It is also a great option for anyone with allergies as it is easy to make gluten or dairy free and you can decorate this however you like and tailor the flavour of the choc however you choose very easily so it’s quite versatile too.
Sometimes you just want a snack to tide you over in between meals or maybe just something small with a bit of fruit for those of you who don’t have a huge appetite at breakfast but want to get more goodness into your day. Then these are a great way to do that, plus, no added sugar!
I used a plant protein here to balance out the carbs but it also makes a good post exercise snack until you can get home/to work to make a proper breakfast. These cookies are also pretty flexible in terms of adding different ingredients to make them taste they way you want. I like coconut and berries as I used a white choc coconut flavour protein but you can do whatever you like such as spices e,g cinnamon/ginger or some chopped dark chocolate!
This is my selection of snacks that aren’t filled with chicory inulin as some people can’t tolerate lots of prebiotics without symptoms and it seems like it’s in everything these days!
Every protein bar i pick up seems to have a tonne of chicory in it which means anyone sensitive to this ingredient cant eat an entire bar and so will need to find a different option. Here’s a rundown of the ones I like and use regularly.
Boostballs: These contain natural ingredients for sweetness and protein so don’t contain refined sugar and the keto version is good too, they do have some acacia gum fiber but its not triggering like chicory so I also love those ones too
Find at Holland and barrett or Boots, Superdrug etc
Breakfast carrot cake bars made using natural, nourishing ingredients that will keep you full up til lunchtime. This can also be edited to make them suit whatever tastes you like i.e. more sweet, add fruit of choice etc and are great for portable breakfasts plus they’ll last you a few mornings.
The recipe can be adapted to meet vegan/gluten free/ sugar free diets as necessary and are a good way of sneaking fruit & veg into people. It’s also optional but I used protein powder instead of standard flour because it balances out the macros a little more meaning they’re a good option post-workout too.
Donuts that will energise you and not leave you feeling sluggish after a sugar trip? Yes please!
These donuts were ones that I really wanted to contain matcha as it’s a great ingredient but most people don’t know how to consume it except for a drink in the morning. So i wanted to highlight how you can bake with it and get the benefits of an energising, antioxidant packed snack through baking.
