Chocolate Shake

Hello! The last couple of weeks I’ve been kind of disorganised, which is why my posting schedule has been off. But I’m taking this weekend to plan things out a bit better, so I can post better content more consistently! Anyways, I’m really excited about this Chocolate Shake because it’s simple, healthy, delicious, and EVERYTHING YOU NEED RIGHT NOW! It’s also very thick and creamy. With just three ingredients (one being water), you can make yourself a delicious treat that’s kind of like a frosty;))) Because of its healthy simplicity, it can be enjoyed any time of day. It would be great in the morning with some granola! Here’s the recipe;))

Peanut Butter Chocolate Fudge Bars

Hey there! I meant to post a killer fudge recipe closer to Halloween, but I just didn’t have the time. So today I whipped up these Peanut Butter Chocolate Fudge Bars and DANG THEY’RE GOOD! They almost taste like a peanut butter cup, but with no refined sugar and only 7 ingredients! I’m practising some self-control right now by not gobbling up the whole pan. Did I add that they’re no bake and require almost zero effort? If you’re not convinced of the amazingness of this recipe by now, I don’t know what’s going on inside that head of yours. Grab your peanut butter and let’s rock!

Peanut Butter Chocolate Fudge Bars

Serves: Makes About 20 Small Bars

Total Time: 40 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup natural peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup + 1 tbs maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup + 3 tbs coconut oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 cup almond meal (ground almonds)
  • 1/2 cup blanched and slivered almonds
  • 1 tbs cocoa powder

Directions:

  1. In a pot, combine the peanut butter, vanilla, 1/4 cup maple syrup, and 1/4 cup coconut oil. Place over medium heat until the mixture is melted and smooth, but don’t allow it to simmer. Remove from the heat.
  2. Add the almond meal and blanched almonds into the pot and stir until combined. Spread the mixture evenly onto a parchment-lined 8×8 baking pan and place in the freezer.
  3. In another pot, stir together the 1 tbs maple syrup, 3 tbs coconut oil and 1 tbs cocoa powder over low heat until melted and smooth. Allow to cool for a few minutes before removing the peanut butter mixture from the freezer and spooning the chocolate over it, covering the top completely. At this point, your fudge bars might look like a soupy mess, but this is normal!
  4. Place the pan into the freezer for 25 minutes to let the bars set. Take them out of the freezer and cut them into small squares. Store in an airtight container in the fridge and enjoy!

These definitely would’ve been good on Halloween, but with the holidays coming up, you’ll still have plenty of time to enjoy these amazing bars! Have a great weekend;))

Cinnamon Apples

Hey there! If you didn’t see my Instagram story the other day, I just wanted to let you know that I’ve decided to only post once a week from now on. I really underestimated how busy I’d be once school started up again, and haven’t been able to keep up with posting three times per week, as much as I’ve wanted to! So, I’ll for sure be posting every Monday, and there might be some extra bonus posts sprinkled throughout the week sometimes.

Annnnnywaaaays, this week I have yet another super fall-ish recipe! These cinnamon apples take about 15 minutes to whip up and are SO DELISH! They’re everything that fall should be and more. They would be great on oatmeal, yogurt, in a pie, on nice cream, in cereal, the list goes on and on! I devoured them all on their own:) Enjoy the recipe:))

Cinnamon Apples

Serves: 2

Total Time: 15 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 2 apples, peeled and chopped
  • 1 tbs ground cinnamon
  • 1 cup water

Directions:

  1. In a small pot, bring all of the ingredients to a boil.
  2. Bring down to a simmer and cover, cooking for about 8 minutes, or until the apples are soft.
  3. Pour the apples through a strainer to get rid of the excess liquid. If you like you can mash the apples a bit before serving to give a smoother texture. Dump into a bowl and enjoy!

I think that today is actually the first day of fall, so it’s the perfect time to make and enjoy this recipe! Have a good week;))
