I had a Christmas in July lunch to attend and my friend asked me to make a veggie dish to bring along, so I decided on this lovely combination of flavours and textures. It is perfect as a side dish for your dinner or even as your lunch. Add some feta or goats cheese to get an extra salty flavour and creamy texture.
Who doesn't love pancakes? Especially on a Sunday morning! This weekend I felt like pancakes and decided to try my own recipe to see what it would turn out like and they were delicious.
Pancake goodness with no guilt attached.
It has been a while since I last added a recipe, but today I got experimenting in the kitchen once again. I felt like chocolate but was all out of my usual stash of Loving Earth blocks and with a little bub now it isn't as easy to just 'pop down the street'. So I decided to try my hand at making my own chocolate...and boy is it yummy!!
1/3 cup coconut oil
80g melted butter
2tbs raw cacao powder
2-3tbs rice malt syrup (depending on how sweet you want it)
Add nuts and dried fruit to your taste...I used almonds, cashews, sultanas, cranberries and raisins.
1. Put the nuts and dried fruit into a food processor and pulse until they are chopped into smaller chunks.
2. Line a baking tin with baking paper. Spread the fruit and nut mixture over the base of the tin.
3. Heat a saucepan on medium heat. Melt the butter and coconut oil. Once melted take off the heat.
4. Add in the cacao and rice malt syrup to the melted oil & butter mixture and stir until combined.
5. Pour the melted chocolate mixture over the fruit and nuts in the tin.
6. Pop into the freezer for 30 minutes or until set.
7. Remove from the freezer and then pop it into the fridge for a further hour. Then you can slice and pop into an air tight container, or enjoy right away.
I hope you enjoy this recipe and please let me know if you make it, I would love to hear how it went and what you thought of it.
