Healthy gluten-free scones

Gluten-free, vegan, dairy-free and refined sugarfree

I would never have thought that these gluten-free and healthy scones could have turned out so good! Thanks to the gluten-free flour mix from helios, making that possible. One is not enough when they have nuts, raisins and dark chocolate in them. The dough is not dry at all, and they taste great with nutbutter, chocolate spread or berry jam! It’s the perfect recipe to bake on a relaxing Sunday, and the time baking them won’t take you long. Can’t resist them can you? Let’s bake em!

Ingredients

• 550 g gluten-free mix from https://www.helios.no/produkter/glutenfritt/helios-lys-bakemiks/

• 2 dl lukewarm water

• 3 dl almond/oat milk or Andy other plant based milk you prefer

• 1 tsp baking powder

• 4 tbsp olive oil

• 2 to 4 tbsp coconut sugar (the scones I baked, I used 2 tbsp, but if you prefer them sweeter, add more to your liking.)

• 1 tsp salt

• Add chopped walnuts and hazelnuts, dark chocolate chips and raisins. You decide the quantity! Ps: I did one dough with nuts and raisins, while the other one with dark chocolate chips added.

Instructions

1. First add all your dry ingredients in a bowl.

2. Then add the milk, water and oil, stir well. Afterwards knead the dough by hand and if too sticky to begin with, use a spoon or spatula.

3. Cover the dough with plastic wrap or kitchen towel for about 30 minutes. Don’t worry if it hasn’t risen, cause mine didn’t hehe.

4. Now you can add your chopped nuts, raisins and chocolate chips, at this stage it is easier to knead the dough. Shape it into two round pieces and cut almost through to 4 new pieces.

5. Bake in the oven on 220 degrees for 15 minutes. Make sure to watch over the baking time as it depends on the oven and size.

Happy baking everyone and hope you enjoy these guilt free, healthy scones!

Matcha yoghurt Breakfastbowl

Far from boring guys

It’s so easy to put flavor into your natural yoghurt. And my favorite these days is matcha.

This mix is all natural and organic, a nutrient-dense blend of greens and brain boosting superfoods to optimize your focus! It’s an excellent source of antioxidants and is high in vitamins, iron and potassium. Instead of swearing to your coffee with caffein in the morning, give it a try with this breakfast bowl instead which even contains a serving of your daily greens! Far from boring guys. And with only health advantages to offer you.

How to make it

1. You’ll need Greek or dairy free yoghurt version like coconut. Mix it with 1 tsp of matcha and blend well together.

2. Add your favorite toppings with it. I used raw honey to sweeten it up, cashew nuts, cacao nibs, hemp seeds, flax meal and blueberries!

Enjoy your wholesome breakfast bowl, with a tasty, healthy, nutritious and interesting yoghurt to kick start your day!

Christmas smoothie bowl edition

Gingerbread inspired

Can’t believe it’s soon Christmas! So I’m warming up with some Christmas flavors and making a Christmas smoothie bowl edition in honor of this beautiful, magical and wonderful festive holiday. The season is truly something special, it’s a time which reminds us to be grateful, to be kind, to give and appreciate the present of family and loved ones.

Ingredients

• 1-2 frozen banana

• 1 handful cubes of ice

• 1 tsp cinnamon

• 1/4 tsp cardamom

• 1/4 tsp vanilla powder

• 1/4 tsp nutmeg

• 1 tbs lecithin powder ~ https://www.super-nature.no/lecitin

• 1 tbs nut butter like cashew or almond

• 50/100 ml Almond/oat/coconut milk (see how much you need depending on your blender and consistency)

The spices I used from https://www.helios.no/produkter/krydder/ which are natural and organic!

Instructions

Blend all ingredients in a smoothie blender until smooth.

Tip and facts to be aware of

The lecithin powder helps to make it creamy so I would definitely invest in buying that product. Also the spices from Helios are with no additives. Did you know that there is two kinds of cinnamon? There is cassia cinnamon, which is the type of cinnamon we find in most store shelves and then the other one is named Ceylon cinnamon. Be aware that there is more coumarin than in Ceylon cinnamon. Coumarin gives taste, but it is also a toxin that in large quantities can damage the liver. Therefore I would recommend to use Ceylon cinnamon as it contains much less coumarin than Cassia.

Add toppings like granola & gingerbread cookies to decorate your smoothie bowl.

I hope you feel some Christmas spirit by making yourself this smoothie bowl and may all your wishes come true.

Merry Christmas & have a happy holiday ahead.

• 1 banana

• 4 tbs buckwheat flour

• 2 tbs cocosa coconut flour

• 50 ml almond milk

• 1 tbs apple cider vinegar

• 1 ts baking powder

• 1 ts cinnamon & if you like 1/4 cardamom

Instructions

1. In a bowl mash the banana with a fork and whisk together with the egg. Add the rest of the ingredients and whisk/stir until no lumps.
