Brownie Cake by @sarah_kothera ❤️

Ingredients for the frosting
230 g sugarfree chocolate drops (e.g. from Xucker)
180 ml non-dairy milk
4 tbsp coconut puree

Ingredients for the batter

200 g apple puree
100 g coconut flour
3 tbsp flaxseed flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp lucuma powder (or use ground vanilla instead)
50 g cacao powder
2 tbsp coconut puree (let it melt a bit)
150 g xylitol
400 ml non-dairy milk


First prepare the frosting by putting the chocolate drops together with the non-dairy milk and coconut puree into a saucepan. Heat it up slowly and stir until the chocolate drops are melted.
Set the frosting aside and let it cool down.
For the batter place all of the ingredients into a blender or food processor and mix until it becomes a smooth batter.
Preheat the oven to 175°C (347°F) and grease a small baking dish (ø 20 cm) with coconut oil. Pour the mass into the baking dish and bake for 30-40 minutes. As soon as the brownie cake and the frosting are cooled down well you can mix the frosting with a hand mixer to make it creamier. Important is the right temperature of the frosting. If it is too cold (too firm) or too warm (too liquid) you can’t mix or spread it over your cake.
Spread the frosting over the cake and garnish with your favorite berries. Enjoy! #letscookvegan

healthy rocky road bites 

guest post by chalkkids.co.uk 

“My mum makes a delicious rocky road cake. It’s so good, but sadly not very good for you. I can’t even begin to imagine how many calories it contains. But the combination of the crunchy rocky road and the soft cake is what inspired me with this recipe. 

What you’ve got here is a healthier chocolate cake on the bottom layer, packed full of linseeds which are a great source of fibre. Then there’s crunchy nuts coated in dark chocolate, topped off with dried fruit. It’s a great healthier alternative to an indulgent classic!”

Enjoyed this a little bit messy but nevertheless pretty and yummy vegan granola-fruit breakfast bowl. It consists of fresh apples from the farmers market, coconut yoghurt and mixed granola topped with dried bananas & strawberries, coconut flakes and flaxseeds. I bought those lovely pink gladiolas with a friend on the weekend and they perfectly reflected the mood of the early breakfast-photoshoot, so I had to include them! :) Hope you had a nice weekend and a good start into the week, feel free to message me if you need any advice etc, xx Amber :)

To stop hair loss you'll probably want to start taking either fish oil, flaxseed oil, or heck, both. They really help your hair grow in shinier, thicker and faster, and also do wonders for your nails. Stay safe love!

Thank you!<3

Have you tried this Low Carb / Sugar-Free Nut & Flax Granola by Sensato? Netrition sent it to me free this week to try out - and I love it!

We’re discussing it in detail here: http://www.travelinglowcarb.com/13218/easy-low-carb-meals-and-granola/

You can get it on Netrition, and see the nutrition facts & ingredients, at this link: http://www.netrition.com/cgi/goto.cgi?pid=505-0011&aid=3558

It comes in 3 flavors: cinnamon, cranberry & cherry. It’s only 2 net carbs and no sugar alcohols. I love the crunch and the flavor!

It will be great in a homemade trail mix with nuts & dried berries. ;-) Or it would make a delicious cereal with unsweetened almond milk too!

Have you tried it? Is it something you *would* try? I’d love to hear your thoughts! :-)

See: http://www.travelinglowcarb.com/13218/easy-low-carb-meals-and-granola/ for how I did NOT like it, and more details about it.

I plan to use it to make a low carb berry cobbler next. :)
