  • RAW LAMINGTONS PLANT BASED  NUT FREE  To be
    5 days ago by brownpapernutrition RAW LAMINGTONS (PLANT BASED / NUT FREE) : To be honest…when I started making these I had full intention of making a healthy variation on a Bounty Bar, but then I completely forgot to add in a step and the chocolate spread into the coconut and thennnnn as it turned out these taste SO MUCH like LAMINGTONS, in their raw, whole seeds (cause no nuts in this one!) and delicious date and cacao-y form. I've popped the recipe on the blog lovely peeps... link in bio for you! PS. I still plan to make a bounty bar but for now…ENJOY!!!!!
  • Our fridge isnt always stocked to the brim in fact
    2 weeks ago by brownpapernutrition Our fridge isn’t always stocked to the brim, in fact quite the opposite, I LOVE to let it run low so I can get creative with what is in there, team the ingredients up with what I have in the pantry and make meals I wouldn’t usually have thought of. However, I probably wouldn’t be able to make as many of those meals without a few key ingredients which make their permanent home in the fridge – check out my fridge team on the blog today and the how’s and why’s of their importance for nutritious meals in our home.

  • Diving into Mondayyyyyyy like Ok so my brekky isnt this
    1 day ago by brownpapernutrition Diving into Mondayyyyyyy like.... Ok so my brekky isn't this today unfortunately, HOWEVER before you pass this off as a fruit salad, I wanted to break down PROTEIN in this meal for you. The common misconception is that we need a big chunky protein source (most identify as eggs, bacon, chicken, fish, beef or protein powder) in order to have 'protein' in a meal. This isn't actually true. Proteins are comprised of essential amino acids. Essential amino acids are those amino acids the body cannot synthesise and need to be obtained from the diet. Plant foods contain essential amino acids,
  • Happy Monday friends!!!! I made this platter for my family
    1 week ago by brownpapernutrition Happy Monday friends!!!! I made this platter for my family yesterday as a starter before a big lunch to celebrate some birthdays and it went down a treat, especially for me as Saturday I spent feeling just outright wretched with zero desire to do anything but rest - which I did and by Sunday morning I was back on top and ready to eat! Amazing that old REST chestnut isn't it? It's amazing how we sometimes resist it but how restorative is it??!?! Back to food... This platter appealed to both the kiddies and adults so if you're planning a

Peanut Butter Oat Bars

The best way to reboot your health routine is to plan ahead. If you’re guilty of reaching for chocolates after dinner, make these healthy peanut butter oat bars and stash them in your freezer. Break off a little after dinner and enjoy something sweet – without the guilt. They are dairy-free, vegan wholefoods goodness with just four ingredients that you probably already have in your pantry. The addition of inulin gives them a nice fibre boost. Inulin is a type of soluble fibre that functions as a prebiotic in your gut – a food source for the beneficial bacteria that live there. You can add inulin to your morning oats or in raw snack bars like these scrumptious peanut butter oat bars. Enjoy!

Peanut Butter Oat Bars

Dairy Free / Vegan 

Makes 8-10 bars

1.5 cups medjool dates, pitted

1 cup peanut butter (100% pure)

1 cup rolled oats

2 tbs inulin

Line a slice tin with baking paper.

Soak dates in warm water for about 10 minutes and then drain well. Squeeze out any excess water.

Put dates in a blender and blend until the mix forms a paste.

Add oats, peanut butter and inulin to blender and keep blending until crumbly.

Pour in ¼ cup water a little at a time or until the mix forms a fudgey ball.

Press the mix into the lined slice tray until smooth and even on top.

Pop in the freezer for an hour.

Take out of the freezer and cut into 8-10 bars (depending on how thick you like them).

Place the bars in an airtight container with baking paper between any layers and pop in the fridge or back in the freezer.

(They will keep well in the fridge for two weeks and in the freezer for two months.)

Enjoy!
