Blender Flourless Brownies

Blender Flourless Brownies

Yep, you read right, make flourless brownies in your blender! So easy and quick! Throw all the ingredients and then pour the mix into your baking tray or molds like I do!

My kids love these and they also take them to school as their snack. I love them because they take literally minutes to make, there is minimal washing up, they have great nutrition in them and are sugar-free so continue to build their healthy relationship with food and real chocolate.

They are also great with a cup of tea for me!!

Ingredients
  1. 3/4 cup raw cacao powder
  2. 1/4 tsp baking powder
  3. 1/4 tsp. Himalayan Pink salt
  4. 1 cup coconut oil (you could also use butter/ghee)
  5. 14 dates (more or less for you own sweet tooth)
  6. 1-2 tbsp. coconut sugar (optional)
  7. 3/4 cup cacao paste or 1/2 cup 70-80% chocolate bar/chips
  8. 4 eggs
  9. 3/4 cup water
  10. 1/2 cup collagen hydrolysate (optional)
  11. pinch of vanilla or tsp vanilla extraxct
  12. Chocolate chips for the top (optional)
Instructions
  1. Add all the ingredients
  2. Blend
  3. (yes it is that simple!)
  4. Pour into greased baking tray or moulds
  5. Bake for 20 mins at 180c (it may be longer if you are baking it in a baking tray)
  6. allow to cool. They may feel fragile but when they cool they will firm up
Notes
  1. These have a rich dark chocolate taste. My kids love them but if you are used to refined sugar brownies, these may taste bitter, adjust and reduce the amount of sugar each time you make them to change your palate. On the flip side if you are used to being sugar free, these may taste really sweet!

How can I get fats into my diet?

You probably know by now, how much I love fats! They are great for reducing chronic inflammation, boost your immune system, change your body shape, balance blood sugar levels and even balance hormone levels. I am looking to lose weight for life and fats have been integral to my success. Especially great for kids- I have been looking at ways to also maximise their intake too. The three of us shared this recipe.

The other morning I woke up starving! I also really craved a smoothie. I haven’t been drinking smoothies recently as I went off them a couple of weeks ago. I think it has something to do with the fact that since I have gone off grains (for my trademark 80% of the time!) I have not been half as hungry as before. I decided to have a smoothie and created this one with as many fats in it as possible. I cannot describe how satisfied I felt after this! At lunch I had a salad with pomello and shrimps and scallops and I was still satisfied until dinner- with my blood sugar levels for the past 15 years that is practically unheard of.

Here is what I did;

Blender Pancakes Loula NAtural

I remember seeing the blender pancakes on pinterest and my friend Kate was making them. I was happy making my Weekend pancakes and Almond and coconut flour pancakes. Then one day when we were in a massive rush my daughter was making a big fuss about eating pancakes for breakfast! Thus my venture into blender pancakes began! 

Super easy and very little mess- however not the easiest pancakes to flip in the pan! So I started to play with the recipe just a little. The basic recipe is banana and egg in a blender! I add a bit of substance to that and a little extra nutrition. But still keep them grain free.

Ingredients
  1. 2 banana's
  2. 3 eggs (medium from pasture raised free range chickens)
  3. 1tbs almond meal
  4. 1tbs coconut flour (or you can use oat or buckwheat)
  5. Butter/Ghee for cooking
Instructions
  1. Add all the ingredients to the blender
  2. Blend well
  3. Add butter to the pan when melted pour in pancake mix. These pancakes can be used for crepe style pancakes or thicker piklet style.
  4. When bubbles appear and the edges are cooked- flip the pancake over and allow to cook for a few more minutes.
Notes
  1. We normally have our pancakes with coconut yoghurt, maple syrup and berries. Or we will have nut butter and chia jam. Almost always we will have them with bacon and maple syrup- breakfast of champions.

pancake pan Loula Natural

I use this pan to make pancakes for the kids. You have have two pans on the go while you make them as it is pretty difficult to flip them. I add ghee to the bottom of the pan so when you can see the bubbles forming you can just turn the pan over another pan to cook the other side.
