Chocolate cake in 2-minutes and 30-seconds? Yes, please! Especially when it is gluten-free, dairy-free, paleo and delicious.
Simply mix the following together in a microwave-safe mug: • 3 Tbsp almond flour, • 2 Tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder (or you can use cacao for extra health benefits), • 2 Tbsp pure maple syrup, • 1 Tbsp original unsweetened almond milk, • 1/2 Tbsp olive oil, • 1 egg, and • a dash of pink Himalayan sea salt.
• 2 Tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder (or you can use cacao for extra health benefits),
Microwave times vary based on the mug and microwave so try popping it in for 1-minute and 30-seconds at first and then continue at 30-second intervals until at desired consistency (it usually takes me about two and a half minutes).
Once you are done with the microwave, let the brownie cool in the mug for a couple minutes. Then scoop it out, top with fruit preserve and fresh fruit (optional), and enjoy with a cold glass of almond milk.
This simple yet filling breakfast takes less than a minute to prepare and is just 100 calories.* Not to mention it is absolutely delicious.
The only ingredients you need are: • Organic brown rice cakes (plain, unsalted) • Earth Balance soy-free natural buttery spread, • Organic blueberry preserves, and • Sliced fresh organic strawberries.
Simply take each rice cake and top it with some Earth Balance natural buttery spread, blueberry (or your choice of fruit) preserves, and then just add on your favorite sliced fruit (I chose organic strawberries for this one) and you are ready to head out the door with a meal.
These healthy cakes pair well with a nice hot cup of English breakfast tea or almond milk chai.
*Exact calorie count varies based on rice cake and topping serving sizes.
This is a great and refreshing way to start the day, not to mention an easy way to get a nice helping of protein in.
All you need for this quick and easy treat are the following: • Mixed berry almond yogurt, • Organic strawberries, • Organic blueberries, • Organic raspberries, • Sunflower seeds, and • Chia seeds.
This simple breakfast bowl is made of just some mixed berry almond yogurt and topped with fresh organic strawberries, organic blueberries, organic raspberries, sunflower seeds and chia seeds. You can sit, relax, and enjoy this bowl or toss it in a mason jar and have it on the run.
Two ingredient pancakes – these are by far the healthiest and easiest pancakes I have ever made. And the best part is they don’t “taste healthy.”
It is so simple that even the ingredients are smiling at you. Chop up the banana and toss it in a blender to mix together with the eggs until liquefied.
You can also toss in whatever ingredients you would like to fill your pancake with into the batter (like fresh organic blueberries, organic raspberries, or even chocolate chips).
Pour this batter into a well-oiled skillet (I use olive oil) on medium heat until at desired consistency (essentially this is when you start to see them solidify and brown around the edges), then flip.
Let it cook through evenly and you are done. No need for any sugar, butter, or anything unhealthy.
Just garnish with fresh fruits and maple syrup, as desired. Enjoy with tea or a glass of freshly squeezed orange juice for a satisfying and nutrient-filled breakfast.
**Variations of this recipe include 1 banana and 1 large egg, or 1 banana and 3 egg whites, but the consistency of the pancakes will vary as well.
So incredibly simple and so delicious. A great guilt-free way to still enjoy holiday season desserts (or just feel like it’s still the holiday season in the middle of March).
All you need are the following (please note these amounts vary by taste and serving size): • 1 Cup pumpkin purée, • 2 Tbsp pure maple syrup, • 1 Tbsp cinnamon, • A handful of organic brown rice puffs, and • Your favorite fruit (I used organic strawberries here).
Simply mix the pumpkin purée with the maple syrup and cinnamon, to taste.
Refrigerate the mix for a few hours and then layer in the brown rice puffs. Top with your strawberry slices (or other fruit of choice) and enjoy.
I love this one because you can make the pumpkin mix (without the rice puffs) in larger batches at the beginning of the week, refrigerate it, and portion it out throughout the week by just adding in the rice puffs and toppings right before you’re ready to enjoy your parfait.
