Kamut Almond Cookies

Friday, April 18, 2014

http://schneiderchen.de | © 2014 | http://angiesrecipes.blogspot.com




Made with whole wheat kamut flour and ground almonds, and sweetened with honey and stevia instead of granulated sugar, these cookies, adapted from Taste, are quite filling and so much healthier than most traditional cookies. You won't feel bad eating a few of them at one go with a glass of buttermilk.

  • 60 g Coconut oil, melted
  • 140 g Honey
  • 190 g Kamut grains, ground into flour
  • 10 g Cocoa powder
  • 100 g Almond meal
  • 1 tsp Baking soda
  • 0,5 g Pure stevia extract
  • 1/2 tbsp Ground cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp Freshly finely grated ginger
  • 1 tbsp Milk
  • Coloured sprinkles
  1. Preheat oven to 180C/350F. Melt coconut oil in a saucepan over medium heat. Increase heat to medium-high. Stir in honey and bring to the boil. Remove from heat. Allow to cool for 10 minutes.
  2. Sift kamut flour, cocoa powder, almond meal, baking soda, stevia extract and cinnamon together into coconut oil mixture. Add in freshly grated ginger and milk. Stir until well combined. Cover and set aside for 1 hour or until dough is firm.
  3. Place sprinkles in a shallow dish. Roll level tablespoons of mixture into balls. Roll balls in sprinkles to coat evenly. Place balls, 3cm apart, on a large parchment-lined baking tray. Bake for about 15 minutes until golden brown. Cool on trays for 5 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

As soon as I saw these chocolate cookies on The Squishy Monster I knew I had to make them myself. These cookies are a dream if you are a chocolate lover who needs to go gluten-free.
Chewy on the inside, crispy around the edges, and intensely chocolatey and rich, these deep dark, flourless (which means gluten-free), no added fat chocolate cookies are super quick, easy to mix and bake up, and are very beautiful with their shiny, crackled tops.

  • 220 g Powdered sugar
  • 40 g Dutch-processed Cocoa powder
  • Pinch of sea salt
  • 2 Large egg whites
  • 1 tsp Vanilla extract
  • Rose peppercorns
  • Pyramid sea salt with chilli
  1. Preheat the oven to 180C350F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper and grease the parchment.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the powdered sugar, cocoa powder and salt. Whisk in the egg whites and vanilla extract until the batter is smooth.
  3. Scoop the batter by the tablespoon full onto the prepared baking sheets. Leave enough space between each cookie for them to spread. Sprinkle with red peppercorns or sea salt. Bake for 12-14 minutes, until the tops are glossy and lightly cracked.

Vegan Gluten Free Black Bean Brownies

Saturday, April 05, 2014

http://schneiderchen.de | © 2014 | http://angiesrecipes.blogspot.com





http://schneiderchen.de | © 2014 | http://angiesrecipes.blogspot.com


Brownies made with black beans might sound quite unappealing to some of you, but I can assure you these are really delicious. No, I am not saying that they taste exactly like regular brownies, but still pretty delicious and nutritious as beans are a good source of protein and fiber. I used Happy Herbivore's recipe as inspiration, but slightly tweaked it by adding a little coconut oil and a mix of white and dark chocolate chips, but you can leave them out if you want to.

  • 280 g Cooked black beans, homemade or can
  • 2 Small bananas
  • 30 g Dutch-process cocoa powder
  • 70 g Maple syrup
  • 20 g Coconut oil, melted
  • 1 tsp Vanilla extract
  • 40 g Quick oats
  • 100 g A mix of white and dark chocolate chips
  1. Preheat the oven to 180C/350F. Line an 8-inch pan with parchment paper and set aside. Drain and rinse the cooked black beans.
  2. Combine all the ingredients, except the oats and chocolate chips, in a food processor and blend until completely smooth. Stir in oats and chocolate chips.
  3. Pour the batter into the prepared pan. Bake for 25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Allow to cool before slicing.

http://schneiderchen.de | © 2014 | http://angiesrecipes.blogspot.com




http://schneiderchen.de | © 2014 | http://angiesrecipes.blogspot.com


Protein bars are a delicious and convenient way to enjoy a high protein snack. There is no need to buy protein bars when it's far cheaper and more nutritious to make your own. These wholesome protein bars, adapted from desserts with benefits, are made with quality hemp and rice protein, antioxidant-rich green tea powder with nutritious oat and healthy fats.

  1. Line a 20x12-cm plastic box with a large sheet of plastic wrap. Whisk together the almond butter, soya milk, and stevia extract until combined in a mixing bowl.
  2. In another bowl, mix together the hemp protein powder, rice protein powder, oat flour and matcha powder. Slowly add this dry mixture to the almond butter mixture. Mix until the mixture is even, scraping down the sides of the bowl if necessary. It should have a texture like cookie dough.
  3. Spoon the mixture into the prepared box and flatten the surface with a rubber spatula or pastry roller. Cover the box with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight.
  4. The next day, slice the protein bars and drizzle them liberally with melted white chocolate. Store the rest in a plastic box with a lid in the fridge.
