blackberries

What could be better than getting something for free!! You can get yourself out into the countryside and pick some blackberries.

Not only are you getting something for free but you’ll be benefitting from some fresh air. Maybe you’ll have a good walk to get to some or even go on a bike! Whatever your mode of transport here is a recipe that can utilise your hard work and it’s sugar free! This has been taken from the Good Things magazine.

  • 50g of Blackberries
  • 10 Medjool dates
  • 50g of desiccated coconut plus extra for rolling
  • 200g of porridge oats (Use less if you like your energy balls to be a bit gooey!)
  • 1 vanilla bean scraped
  • 1 tsp of cinnamon

In a food processor blend the oats until the consistency of flour. Add in the rest of the ingredients and blend until fully combined.

Roll the mixture into 16 balls and roll each ball in desiccated coconut until fully coated.

Place in the freezer for half an hour then then place in the fridge until serving.

These will last 2 weeks in the fridge.

Let me know how you get on.

Aubergine Chocolate Brownies

Gluten Free Banana Bread

This recipe has been taken from ‘The clever guts diet – how to revolutionise your body from the inside out’ by Dr Michael Mosley.

  • 1 medium aubergine (200g) peeled and diced
  • 150g dark chocolate (Min 70% cocoa) broken up
  • 60g coconut oil
  • 60g soft pitted dates, diced
  • 1/2tsp salt
  • 3 eggs, beaten
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 80g ground almonds
  • Preheat oven to 170 degrees C

Steam aubergine 15-20mins until soft. When it’s ready place it in a bowl with the chocolate and coconut oil. The warm aubergine will melt the oil and chocolate.

Add the chopped dates and salt and place in a food processor. Blitz the mixture until smooth. It should now be cool enough to add the eggs and baking powder. Blitz again for another minute or so and then mix in the ground almonds.

Spread the mixture in a lined baking tray (I used 20cm square tin) and bake for about 20 mins. It is cooked when a knife comes out clean.

It does say that you could make cupcakes, divide mixture in a 12 hole cupcake tray and bake for 15-20mins.
