As I said before, these days I make more desserts than food, but these desserts can’t be compared to the desserts we are used to. They have no sugar no processed ingredients or flour, food coloring or anything you cannot pronounce.
These recipes are 100% made out of natural ingredients, usually not more than 5.
They fit perfectly in any kind of diet. These days people fallow all kinds of diets like the low carbohydrate diet, the ketogenic diet, also paleo diet is very popular, not to mention vegan and raw vegan.
So here are the ingredients:
2 tbsp of sweetener (I used monk fruit extract)
2 tbsp of water
2 cups of almond flour
1 tbsp almond extract
1 tbsp of vanilla extract
Mix the 2 tbsp of sweetener with the 2 tbsp of water
add the almond extract and the vanilla extract
add the 2 cups of almond flour
mix them well
form little balls
roll them in the toppings you prefer (coconut, cacao, chocolate, hemp hearts, chia seeds)
Place them in the fridge for 1 hr, but you can serve them immediately too.
Here is the video of how to make them step by step!
I have a little tip for you today, on how to make your own almond (peanut,cashew or any kind of nut) butter.
The ones from the stores are loaded with sugar, vegetable oil, salt and preservatives. You don’t need that stuff!!
It is so simple to make it, that you will be amazed! 🙂
How to do it:
Silk your natural unsalted almonds (2-3 cups) overnight
Place them in the food processor and start to process
After 10 minutes it starts to stick to the side of your blender, so stop for a while and mix it with a spatula
Process it again for about 10 more minutes, till it starts to be like a cream
At the end you can add if you want a little honey, vanilla or cinnamon.
And here you go, your almond butter is ready. You can eat it with apple slices, you can make smoothies with bananas and almond butter, almond butter granola bars, flour less almond butter healthy cookies and so on.
