Jujube Spelt Streusel Bars

Monday, October 22, 2018 | © 2018 | | © 2018 |

Jujube, or Chinese date, is a hoarder of nutrients. Like dates, jujube fruit is loaded with energy, essential vitamins and minerals (magnesium, potassium, copper, niacin, calcium, manganese, phosphorus, and iron), which provide its many health benefits. These erythritol sweetened cookie bars with a Quark cheese & butter crust and a streusel topping are packed full of fibre and wonderful as a breakfast cookie or a healthy after school treat.

Jujube SpreadStreuselCrust
  • 300 g Jujube dates, red or black
  • 70 g Erythritol
  • 50 g Butter
  • 100 g White spelt flour
  • 50 g Erythritol
  • Pinch of salt
  • 80 g Unsalted butter, chopped
  • 1/2 tsp Vanilla extract
  • 100 g White spelt flour
  • 70 g Whole spelt flour
  • 50 g + 20 g Hazelnut meal
  • 50 g Erythritol
  • 1 tsp Baking powder
  • 150 g 20% Quark
  • 1 Large egg
  • 50 g Butter, chopped and softened
  1. Cover jujube dates with water and let soak for 1 hour. Using a paring knife, slice down lengthwise into the date. Pull open the date and remove the pit. Place them in a medium pot and fill with enough water. Cover the pot, bring to a boil and simmer for 25 minutes. Use an immersion blender and blend the jujubes until smooth.
  2. Cook the mixture over low-medium heat until it has thickened, about 1 hour. Stir in butter and mix well. Set aside to cool.
  3. Place spelt, erythritol and salt for the streusel together in a mixing bowl. Add in chopped butter and vanilla extract. Rub everything together until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
  4. Place all the ingredients for the crust, except 20 grams of hazelnut meal, in a mixing bowl. Beat with a handheld mixer until a smooth dough forms. Press the dough evenly into a 22x26x4cm baking pan lined with parchment paper. Sprinkle the reserved hazelnut meal over. Spread the jujube spread over. Top with prepared streusel.
  5. Preheat the oven to 180C/350F. Bake the bar in the middle of hot oven for 35-40 minutes until nicely golden. Remove and cool completely before slicing into bars. | © 2018 | | © 2018 | | © 2018 |

Einkorn Vanilla Protein Pumpkin Bread With Port Soaked Raisins

Monday, October 15, 2018 | © 2018 |

A delicious, nutritionally packed quick einkorn bread filled with my Autumn favourites - pumpkin and warm spices. It makes a perfect low sugar snack or breakfast with plenty of protein. You can swap the protein flavour and feel free to use other types of whole grain flour instead of einkorn.

  • 50 g Vanilla whey protein powder
  • 50 g Almond meal
  • 150 g Einkorn berries, milled into flour
  • 2 tsp Baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp Baking soda
  • 1 tbsp Pumpkin pie spice mix
  • 300 g Pumpkin puree
  • 50 g Lemon curd
  • 1 Large egg
  • 2 tbsp Coconut syrup
  • 50 g Ghee, melted
  • 180 g Raisins, soaked in port wine and drained
  • 1 tbsp Coconut flakes for topping
  1. Line a standard-size loaf pan with baking paper. Preheat the oven to 190C/375F.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the protein powder, almond meal, milled einkorn, baking powder, baking soda and spice mix.
  3. Beat pumpkin puree, lemon curd, egg, coconut syrup, and melted ghee in another bowl until smooth and well combined.
  4. Sift in the flour mixture and fold to combine. Fold in drained raisins. Scrape the batter into the prepared loaf pan. Smooth the surface and sprinkle the coconut flakes over.
  5. Bake in the hot oven for 30 minutes. Reduce the oven temperature to 170C/340F and bake 15 more minutes until nicely golden brown and a wooden toothpick, inserted in the middle comes out clean. Remove and cool in the pan for 5 minutes before turning out onto a wire rack to cool completely. | © 2018 | | © 2018 |

Rich, delicate, moist and chewy - - these easy low carbs, gluten free hazelnut chocolate cookies are perfect for grab-and-go and an ideal treat for cookie fans on low carbs or anyone who follows keto diet. If you want to make them paleo friendly, just replace psyllium husk powder with arrowroot powder. Also almonds or macadamias can be used in the place of hazelnuts.

  • 200 g Hazelnut meal
  • 10 g Psyllium husk powder
  • 10 g Arrowroot powder
  • 120 g Erythritol
  • 1 tsp Baking powder
  • 100 g Salted butter, chopped and melted
  • 1 Egg, medium
  • 1 tsp Vanilla extract
  • 150 g No-sugar added chocolate chips
  1. Preheat oven to 180C/350F. Prepare a large baking tray lined with parchment paper.
  2. Place chopped butter in a microwave-safe dish. Microwave, uncovered, on high until butter is melted, about 30 seconds. Take out and cool slightly.
  3. Place the hazelnut meal, psyllium husk powder, arrowroot powder, erythritol and baking powder in a large bowl and mix to combine. Add in melted butter, egg and vanilla and mix well to combine. Stir through the chocolate chips.
  4. Roll 2 tablespoonfuls of dough into a ball. Place the cookie balls on the prepared baking tray, leaving 5cm between each to allow room for spreading. You will have 12 cookie balls.
  5. Bake for 10–12 minutes or until golden brown. Allow to cool slightly on trays before transferring to wire racks to cool completely. | © 2018 | | © 2018 |

Overnight Green Tea Spelt Loaf with Streusel

Monday, October 01, 2018 | © 2018 | | © 2018 |

I am a tea drinker and always try to incorporate tea, either black or green, oolong is my favourite though, into my baked goods whenever possible. This overnight spelt loaf, lightly sweetened with coconut sugar, is soft and tender with a buttery crumble topping--perfect for breakfast or afternoon tea snack.

  • 250 g White spelt flour
  • 100 g Whole spelt flour
  • 1/2 tbsp Green tea powder
  • 2 tbsp Coconut sugar
  • 1/2 tsp Sea salt
  • 3 g Dried yeast
  • 200 ml Liquid green tea, lukewarm
  • 1 Small egg
  • 50 g Butter, softened
  • 50 g White spelt flour
  • 30 g Coconut sugar
  • Pinch of salt
  • 40 g Unsalted butter, chopped
  1. Place all the dough ingredients in a mixer and mix everything until you have a smooth, stiff dough. Cover and leave it at room-temperature to rest for 2 hours.
  2. Gently knead down the dough and shape into a loaf to fit a standard-size loaf pan lined with baking paper. Cover and leave overnight to rise in the fridge.
  3. The loaf will have risen slightly after 8-10 hours. Take it out of the fridge and put it somewhere warm to carry on rising until it reaches the rim of the pan, 1 to 3 hours.
  4. Place all the streusel ingredients in a bowl and rub everything together until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Place the streusel on the top of bread.
  5. Preheat the oven to 200C/400F. Bake the loaf for about 40 minutes until nicely golden brown. Remove and cool on a wire rack for 5 minutes before turn it out to cool completely. | © 2018 | | © 2018 |
