nutty breakfast bars

I always avoided commercial breakfast bars as they usually have a lot of hidden sugars and other unnecessary ingredients in them, even the ones with the word “healthy” or a picture of a slim female figure on them. Again, homemade is better. These easy-to-make breakfast bars make an energy-boosting breakfast, but they work equally well as an afternoon snack. Did I mention that they taste gorgeous? Well they do! Nutty Breakfast Bars 4 dl rolled oats 2 dl nuts & seeds (I used walnuts, cashew nuts, pecan nuts & sunflower seeds) 200 g pitted dates 0,5 dl honey 0,5 dl natural peanut butter vanilla & cinnamon to taste Soak the dates for 30 minutes and while waiting, heat the oven to 175c and toast the oats in the oven on a parchment covered baking tray for about 10-15 minutes.

crunchy kale crisps

An easy recipe for healthier snacking. Whether it’s an evening on the couch or a party you’re planning for this weekend, these crisps will do the trick! Heat the oven to 175c, wash a bunch of kale (I had 3 big leaves, 3 medium sized and a couple of small ones) and pat them gently dry with kitchen paper or in a salad spinner. Cut the hard stalks away and tear the kale into big, crisp-sized pieces. In a mortar and pestle mix 1 tea spoon dried onion powder, 1/2 tea spoon dried garlic, 6 black peppers, 1/3 tea spoon of turmeric and 1/2 tea spoon himalayan salt. Place the pieces of kale on parchment covered baking tray. Spinkle some olive oil on top and give them a good mix. Then sprinkle your spice mix on top, bake in the oven for approximately 10 minutes, until the edges of the kale crisps become brown (but not burned) and they have a nice crunchy texture. Enjoy!
