I’ve had a lot of time to experiment with recipes lately. I got sick, and my blood work showed that I have dangerously low levels of iron and hemoglobin, so I’m getting more tests done in the next few days to hopefully figure out what’s wrong (I’ll tell you more soon in a blog post). So, since I can’t leave my house I have to make it fun and yummy, right?!
These are literally the best healthy brownies I’ve ever had! They completely satisfy my inner chocoholic & leave me totally guilt-free. No refined sugar, only healthy fats, and lots of nutrients! The brownies are high in iron, calcium & vitamin C, and also contain numerous other micronutrients that are essential to our wellbeing.
This being called a healthy brownie is only due to the fact there are no empty calories, and all the ingredients are actually beneficial for your health. But that doesn’t mean you can have ten of them, just as you can’t (or aren’t advised to) have ten ‘regular’ brownies. The key to health is balance, guys. So make sure to eat some ‘soul food’ from time to time, it’s ok to treat yourself with some extra calories every now and then (well, every day, in my case hahah).
150g organic whole wheat flour
105g organic coconut sugar
60g raw organic cacao powder
60g organic coconut flour
320ml rice/coconut milk
½ cup coconut oil
1tsp vanilla extract
1tsp baking powder
½ tsp baking soda
First, mix all dry ingredients, then all the wet ingredients in a separate bowl, and finally mix them all together. Pour on to a baking sheet, preheat oven to 200°C & bake for 20 minutes.
I topped them with my home made peanut butter, you can find the recipe here.

I promised you this recipe from the Insta story I posted the other day. I made the most yummy protein pancakes ever – I really dislike the taste of whey protein, and I can hardly tell there’s any in this recipe!
I’ve had this problem since forever. I never really enjoyed protein shakes (or bars, or other packaged protein meals) because of the taste – and trust me, I’ve tried more than I can count. So now I’m all about creating recipes that are high in protein, but still taste so good!
I’m using pure whey isolate because it’s the most tasteless one & I can add it to salty or sweet meals! This time I went for sweet :D
½ cup rolled oats
¼ cup whole wheat flour
1 scoop whey protein isolate
½ tsp baking powder
½ cup rice milk
½ tsp bakng soda
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla
First, whisk the egg whites until firm, then slowly add them to the mixture of all the other ingredients. I used sunflower oil for baking (low heat, about 2 minutes each side, covered), and topped them with 1 tsp butter, 1 tbsp honey, and some home made granola.
I'm having a super busy month & there's so much I can't wait to tell you. Meanwhile make sure to stop by at one of my pilates classes (apply vis email: email@example.com).
