  • GLUTEN AND GRAIN FREE APPLE HAZELNUT SLICE Did you know
    6 days ago by brownpapernutrition GLUTEN AND GRAIN FREE APPLE HAZELNUT SLICE Did you know apple season actually starts in January? I was always baffled by this because I felt forever that apples were an autumn or winter fruit, but they start so much earlier than we think. So now that it’s February and apples are dropping fresh from the tree, it’s time for some tribute recipes to the humble fruit. This Apple Hazelnut Slice is one of my favourites of late. It’s scrumptious of course, but also gluten and grain free and my absolute winning element is actually step 2 of the recipe which

  • I wasnt going to post this because Ive never been
    5 days ago by brownpapernutrition I wasn’t going to post this because I’ve never been great with a selfie and my ego says “eeeek Jacq don’t do that!” any time I’ve considered it but you know what? - This is actually the STRONGEST AND FITTEST I’ve felt in YEARS! ☺️It’s ridiculous that so often we don’t acknowledge our achievements isn’t it? That our ego will say “do more, be more, more more more!!!!” but you MUST PAUSE and celebrate your goals otherwise what is actually the point?!?!?! I’ve put in a massive effort to create more BALANCE in my exercise in order to feel this

HOW TO UP YOUR PROTEIN IN YOUR SNACKS AND TREATS

Calling this POWER CHOCOLATE because it’s a freaking powerhouse of nutrients.

Coconut oil, raw cacao and maple is the usual blend for a raw / nutritious chocolate but I’ve pumped up the volume by adding in the protein charged combo of hemp seeds, almonds, brazil and cashew nuts. These nuts and seeds combined together create a complete protein by delivering all essential amino acids our bodies need.

To recap : Essential amino acids are those our bodies require (it’s essential we obtain!) from the diet because we cannot synthesise them. Non essential amino acids are those our bodies can produce.

Then, because how great to have what feels like an indulgent treat but is actually quite good for you, even more pimped I added the nourishing vanilla protein powder I use in my smoothies to the blend too. Ohhhh yeah.

Result? EPIC.

Plus the addition of the protein powder seems to have made the chocolate a tad more solid out of the fridge for longer than the usual raw choccy base. Travelling power chocolate – uh huh – POWER!

Make and share friends – this is a game changer!

POWER CHOCOLATE

GF : DF : SF : VEGETARIAN

Serves 20-30

1 cup coconut oil

1 cup raw cacao powder

1 tablespoon vanilla extract

2 scoops vanilla protein powder (preferably vegan)

2 tablespoon maple syrup

1/2 cup raw almonds, roughly chopped

1/4 cup raw brazil nuts, roughly chopped

1/4 cup raw cashew nuts, roughly chopped

1/4 cup hemp seeds

Place coconut oil in a small saucepan over very low heat to melt. Once melted remove from stove and whisk through cacao, vanilla, protein powder and maple. Line a large loaf tin with greaseproof paper and sprinkle half the nuts and seeds on the base of the tin. Pour half the chocolate then repeat. Refrigerate 2 hours to set. Store in fridge or freezer up to 4 weeks.
