  • 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!!!!!
  • 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
  • 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,

  • 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.

POWER CHOCOLATE

GF : DF : SF : V

Serves 20-30

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.

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.

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!

Ingredients:

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

Method:

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.
