Sugar Free Chocolate and Walnut Brownies

Sugar Free Chocolate and Walnut Brownies

If you are looking for the perfect rich chocolatey indulgent treat that is guilt free and good for you, this refined sugar free chocolate and walnut brownie recipe is for you.

These brownies not only taste delicious they contain cacao, walnuts and beetroot making them a superfood treat to assist with healthy brain function, heart health, stress busting and a healthy functioning nervous system.

Beetroots contain an impressive list of health benefits and they have been proven to treat a variety of health conditions when eaten on a regular basis, including the following:
◾Heart health
◾High blood pressure
◾Inflammatory conditions

With Spring and Summer being beetroot season you can easily purchase these wonderful purple vegetables at your local farmers market or supermarket. For those of you that are way too relaxed to peel and cook your own beetroots for this recipe (I know you are out there) you can buy precooked beetroots in the fresh vegetable section of Coles. Fresh beetroots are my preferred option by far however prepacked beets are a good stand in for those of you that are time poor and way better than anything out of a can. I’m just trying to keep it real peeps!

Let me know how you get on…

Gluten free orange and almond cake

Gluten Free Orange and Almond Cake

Quick and Simple gluten-free orange and almond cake recipe.

Organic oranges are best to use in this recipe as the whole fruit will be consumed in this cake.

If you have been searching high and low for the perfect go to easy to bake cake that not only tastes delicious but is healthy too look no further. This orange almond cake is the perfect cake to have on hand over Christmas. This cake stays beautifully moist and is infused with the delicious flavour of almonds and orange and just a hint of saffron.

In this recipe I have served the cake with a delicate saffron glaze but you can get creative. If you do not have saffron at hand you could decorate the cake with Xmas berries or candies for a more festive feel. What’s even better about this recipe is that it is gluten free and paleo friendly so a sure fire winner with all your Christmas guests.

My ultimate fool proof, delicious and a staple cake this Christmas. I challenge even the junk food non healthy eaters not to love it!
