cacao & raspberry keto bites

one weld i cannot get rid of is going to a movie, and having a snack.

this means i 100% have to go to watch a movie prepared… if not, i am likely to struggle with the temptation of breaking my keto lifestyle… especially those bloody snickers pods! they are the devil!

so here is a very quick snack… so easy to make, and completely satisfies all those snack longings… super delicious, give them a go and they might just end up being your movie snacks too…

swap out the raspberries with any freeze dried fruit, or just have cacao bites!

bacon & cheese keto muffins

we are having unseasonably cold weather in new zealand… so much for a strong start to spring!  im making the most of staying inside by creating these delicious bites.

you cant get a much better match than cheese and bacon … made for each other – both flavours in these muffins are strong and satisfying.

so easy to make, all ingredients go in a bowl and come together using a hand mixer or food processer.  then 15mins later they are ready to eat! whhaaaaatttt!!!

get into it… they are a favourite in my house, even for those who are not keto!

banana bread (gf, rsf)

this is delicious! i tried to have a small portion as a treat now and again, but that was blown out the window.

unless you are ok with this being made and gone on the same day, only the very self controlled should consider baking this dish.

its gluten free yes, but its better than the versions that include flour.  serve with melted butter, its an absolute banger.

while my current diet strictly doesnt allow bananas, the only carbs in this is from the banana so approx 4g of carb per slice… thats ok in moderation i reckon.

coconut porridge (gluten & rfs free)

this is delicious, and better than oaty porridge.  coconut flour takes this to a whole new level that you just dont get from the classic oat porridge.

even if you arent gluten free, i challenge you to try this – youll rate it so much you wont go back!   i am doing low carb at the moment, so this is a perfect breakfast for that 🙂

pair it with cream and some fresh fruit (i used mango and coconut threads)

this recipe takes 5 minutes tops so its the perfect start to any day, or even a delicious snack!

peanut butter & cacao bliss balls

i do a boot camp 5 mornings a week, and our trainer has two favourites (… that i know of) – chocolate and peanut butter.  this recipe was a happy birthday treat….. we all got some of it though!  i couldnt give it ALL away!

this is great as an after dinner snack to help with the pudding cravings, to help with the mid morning or mid afternoon slump period, or a protein hit after a gym session.

or……………………. maybe you dont need a reason at all.

get into it.   its easy to make, AND its a healthy snack that tastes awesome.

snickers bliss balls

my lifestyle has changed a lot over the last few years…. it all started with watching “that sugar film“, which led to more research…

finding out how much our bodies don’t like refined sugar was life altering.

giving up on refined sugar doesn’t mean that i miss out on yummy things – in fact, cutting out sugar means all the stuff i used to think were mediocre, have gone and taken on a completely new lifeform.

here is a favourite snack of mine – bliss balls are SUPER expensive in cafes…. make them at a fraction of the price, chuck them in the fridge and they will last for ages!

you can modify recipes as much as you like – use different nuts, remove the cacao – add dates or dried apricots instead of maple syrup.  experiment!
