  • Believe I might be avoiding getting back into swing of
    7 days ago by brownpapernutrition Believe I might be avoiding getting back into swing of reality by thinking, writing and doing all the baking of cookies. Living the summer holiday dream I say! Then I thought to myself I think it’s time to consolidate all my cookie recipes and see what new ones I can make this year – and so the avoidance continues… So my lovely friends on the blog are 9 OF THE BEST HEALTHY COOKIE RECIPES for you to get mixing and baking. I’d love your comments below on new flavours and what ingredients or dietary requirements you would like to see
  • HEALTHY MANGO MACADAMIA BAR  Its only 200 days in
    3 days ago by brownpapernutrition HEALTHY MANGO MACADAMIA BAR : It's only 200 days in a mango season - which seems like a lot, but when it's during the holiday time and all you can think about is mangoes, eating of mangoes and cooking with said mangoes the season seems to go far too quickly would you agree? So I made the most of the above mentioned seeing, eating and cooking with mangoes and whipped up a HEALTHY FROZEN MANGO MACADAMIA BAR.

  • GREEN PEA SPINACH AND MUNG BEAN CURRY  Aiming this
    4 days ago by brownpapernutrition GREEN PEA SPINACH AND MUNG BEAN CURRY : Aiming this year to do a series of recipes that use some ingredients from pantry and freezer only. Quick, easy, super tasty, not a cheat’s variation per se, but no excuses meals because the ingredients are there, ready and waiting for you in the freezer and pantry – you know what I’m saying? For the days you can’t be bothered to go to the shops, or have come from travel (my inspiration moment for this series), or maybe just want to budget your diet more, you know where I am coming from
  • PLANT BASED Made this scrumptious plant based nourish bowl this
    18 hours ago by brownpapernutrition PLANT BASED: Made this scrumptious plant based nourish bowl this week and it's all I want to eat right now again! I used rocket, tomato, zucchini noodles, mint and sprouts as my fresh ingredients and then made all the flavours juicy and delicious with the toppers in my fridge and pantry. If you have some staples there to bring flavour into the meal then you can create deliciousness from the most basic ingredients on hand. My fun little taste boosters included: + kimchi + dukkah + olives + hemp butter - just made using hemp seeds and olive oil much

9 HEALTHY TWISTS TO YOUR FAVE CHOCOLATE TREATS

WORDS : Team Brown Paper

Chocolate, otherwise known as the “Food of the Gods” and for good reason! Chocolate is jam packed with antioxidants, vitamins and minerals and is both delicious as it is nutritious.  

First things first, we’re not talking about the chocolate bars staring you in the face at the supermarket, or the sugary milk chocolate blocks with chunks of honeycomb, but the real stuff – cacao and quality dark chocolate!

If you’re like us, you’re constantly looking for new chocolate recipes to add to your repertoire. So here you are – you can thank us later!

9 healthy twists on your favourite chocolate treats

  1. TARTS : a classic and undeniable staple to any memorable dinner party, work event or family occasion. Why not try the Raw Chocolate Avo Tart or the Chocolate Avo and Peanut Caramel TartWe warn you though, these tarts may attract some attention at the water cooler chats on Monday morning, they’re seriously irresistible!
  2. Try pairing CHOCOLATE AND BEETROOT – you won’t regret it! Beetroot adds natural sweetness to any dish and is packed with nutrients and flavour. Plus it adds some wow-factor to your desserts thanks to its rich red colour. You can’t go past our Chocolate Beet Cake.
  3. Sick and tired of making the same old ROCKY ROAD for weekend road trips? Then whip out your spatula and have a crack at this Rocky Road with Edge. We substituted marshmallows with strawberry jelly and boy does it bring some pizazz (and a healthful edge) to this classic recipe!
  4. SMOOTHIES continue to be in vogue this year so we’re guessing you’re begging us to tell you how to jazz up those smoothie bowls. Smoothie meet cacao nibs, cacao nibs, meet smoothie. These little gems are a great addition as they add both texture (we just love the crunch!), flavour and nutrients.
  5. Everyone loves ICE- CREAM, and most of us are guilty of having polished off a whole tub on a Saturday night spent in at some point. Right..? Right! Well what if we told you that now you can enjoy it guilt free by making Hazelnut Cacao Nice-Cream?! You’ll go bananas over this frozen banana based gelato! See what we did there..
  6. CHOCOLATE AND PEANUT BUTTER.. What a heavenly combo! Have a crack at these Peanut Butter Choc Chunk Cookies – a great after school treat for the kids (and adults too!) 
  7. You’ll want to get these Healthy Vegan Choc Peanut Butter Brownies into your repertoire. Another one to the chocolate peanut butter heavenly combo list!
  8. Don’t panic, we know you’re getting to the bottom of the list and fretting we’ve forgotten the good ‘ol classic CHEESECAKE. We’ve got you covered. Try this Chocolate Cherry Cheesecake. You may be tempted not to share this one!
  9. Next time the kids ask to bake a CAKE with you, and you’re overcome with fear because a) baking’s never been your thing and b) you’re trying to set a healthy example for your kids, then fear no more! This Choc Banana Cake with Cacao Coconut Ganache is easy, nutritious and super tasty! We promise!
