If you’re anything like me, snacking is a regular activity. Some of this snacking may also leave you feeling pretty yuck. Mixed up, unhealthy snacking is not a vibe (most of the time). So here’s a quick recipe that I adapted from a few other recipes around the web. Oh, and did I mention they only have 3 ingredients? Here goes.
- 8-10 medium dated
- 3-4 teaspoons of unsweetened peanut butter
- 3-4 teaspoons of unsweetened cocoa powder
All you need to do is pit the dates and pop everything in the blender. Roll the mix into bite-sized balls and pop in the fridge for an hour or two and you’re good to go. This recipe usually makes around 10 balls.
Starting off the day in the right way can set you up for success. And as you know, having a good breakfast is one of the ways you can boost your morning, and ultimately, your day. I love pancakes, but the sugar and flour leaves me feeling slightly ill afterwards. When I started doing some reading to find a healthier recipe, most of the ones I found had expensive ingredients that are hard to come by. I found a few more simple recipes, adapted and combined them, and came up with this healthy, sugar free, flourless pancake recipe.
Healthy Breakfast Pancakes – serves 1
You will need:
- 1 banana
- 1 egg
- 1/2 cup of oats
- 1 teaspoon of vanilla essence
- 1 teaspoon of cinnamon
- Mix all the ingredients together in a blender until the mixture is fairly smooth.
- Fry the mixture in a pan with a little bit of butter (you could use coconut oil alternatively).
This mixture usually makes about 4 small pancakes. I usually have mine with some honey and chopped strawberries or blueberries on the top.
