  • 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. It's a bit of a Weiss Bar imposter... although I think the freshness of the fruit and the fact the white creamy stripey

  • PLANT BASED Made this scrumptious plant based nourish bowl this
    17 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

    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

PECAN CRUNCH COOKIES

Thank you mummma, Annie (@the_dailys) and a wonderful group of ladies I drank many cups of tea with over the Easter break for inspiring the cookie monster in me again. (Not sure if this is good thing long term, but I’ll roll with it for now).

Meet PECAN CRUNCH COOKIES…these are a yummy combo of coconut oil, coconut sugar, maple, egg, spelt flour, oats and of course, pecans! They have that traditional cookie crunch experience that’s kind of old school and the perfect accompaniment to a cuppa. I’ve used spelt flour and oats in these to replace wheat flour. Both spelt flour and oats still contain gluten however the structure of their grain is much easier to break down than wheat grain. I’ve just popped the recipe on the website because they are truly scrumptious. J x
