This chickpea cookie dough is the perfect post-workout snack. It’s high in protein and carbs, and it’s full of healthy stuff!  

 

I know that the words “chickpea” and “cookie dough” don’t really seem to go together and my family still thinks that I’m crazy for combining chickpeas and banana. But they don’t know what they’re missing out on 🙂

Apple-Carrot Scones

Edit
Click here to add content.

Recipes

Scones are as versatile as you make them: This recipe turns apples and carrots into scones. 

I first discovered scones on a trip to Ireland. For a year after that, fresh-baked scones were part of my family’s Sunday morning breakfast. Over the years, the recipe changed multiple times – resulting in this apple-carrot scone recipe! 

Get creative!

If the plain scones are too boring for you… They are what you combine them with.

 

Here are some ideas on what to eat them with:

  • Nut butter
  • Banana
  • Homemade hazelnut spread
  • Dark chocolate
  • Homemade jam
  • Fruit chutney

 

My personal favorite is nut butter! 🙂

Beyond Limits

Try this!

I like baked goods best when they’re right out of the oven and still warm. But when they’re already cooled off, I like doing this:

 

  1. Cut the scone in half.
  2. Put it into the microwave for about 30 to 60 seconds.
  3. Take a piece of dark chocolate and press it into the halves of the scone.
  4. Wait a little until it has melted.
  5. Use a knife or spoon to spread the dark chocolate over the whole half.
  6. Top it with some slivered almonds (optional) and enjoy!

Rhubarb-Almond Cake

Edit
Click here to add content.

Recipes

Whenever I don’t know what to make, I come back to this recipe. This cake is filled with rhubarb, high in protein (thanks to almonds), and low in sugar. 

This cake is vegan, but can be made gluten-free as well. It’s the perfect all-year-round-cake: Instead of rhubarb, you can also use apples, plums, or pears! The rhubarb (or any fruit you choose to make it with) blend perfectly with the almond-based dough and the crumbles on top. 

Vegan Rhubarb-Almond Cake

Vegan Rhubarb-Almond Cake
Prep Time 20 minutes
Cook Time 45 minutes
Total Time 1 hour 5 minutes

Ingredients

  • 250g Wholegrain Flour
  • 100g Ground Almonds (or Almond Flour)
  • 125g Vegan Butter
  • 35g Raw Cane Sugar
  • 30ml Soy Milk
  • 800g Rhubarb (peeled)
  • For the crumbles:
  • 150g Wholegrain Flour
  • 85g Vegan Butter
  • 40g Raw Cane Sugar
  • 40g Ground Almonds
  • 40g Walnuts
  • 20g Chopped Hazelnuts
  • 1 Tsp Cinnamon

Instructions

  1. In a bowl, mix all ingredients for the base.
  2. Roll the dough on parchment paper and transfer into a springform pan. The edges of the base should be about 3cm/1in high.
  3. Put the springform into the fridge and let it sit while you cut the peeled rhubarb into pieces of about 1cm/ ½ inch.
  4. Preheat oven to 180°C/356°F.
  5. In another bowl, mix all the ingredients for the crumbles.
  6. Transfer the rhubarb into the springform pan, then spread the crumbles on top.
  7. Bake for about 45min.

Notes

This recipe contains about 75g of sugar in total, but feel free to add some more if you like. I barely eat any sweets at all, so I’m used to a very low amount of sugar.

If you don’t like rhubarb, simply replace it with other fruit! I love making it with prunes in summer, or with apples in winter. Just use what’s in season!

  • 150g Oats
  • 75g Sunflower Seeds
  • 75g Hazelnuts, chopped
  • 75g Nuts, whole 
  • 50g Molasses 
  • 60g Tahini
  • Cinnamon 

Instructions

    1. Chop the whole nuts into smaller pieces. 
    2. Mix all dry ingredients in a bowl.
    3. Add molasses (or the syrup) and tahini and combine well.
    4. Preheat oven to 160°C/320°F. 
    5. Transfer onto a deep baking sheet and bake in the oven for 20 to 25 minutes.

Note: 

If you like it to be sweeter, just add more molasses or syrup! That way, it will also be clumpier.
