Orange & chocolate granola with wheat sprouts

I have an incredibly delicious recipe for you… Orange and chocolate granola with wheat sprouts! Perfect as a healthy breakfast option, but I have to admit, I often eat it as a snack too 😉 The main reason why I love this recipe is because it is super healthy while it still satisfies my sweet tooth. It’s just too good! But let’s get down to business. I will explain how you make this heavenly granola!

Ingredients

  • 2 cups of coconut flakes
  • 1 cup of oats
  • ½ cup of wheat sprouts (you can buy these at almost every supermarket)
  • 1 cup of pumpkin seeds
  • 1 cup of pecans, roughly chopped
  • 4 tablespoons of honey
  • 4 tablespoons of melted coconut oil
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ orange (grated zest and juice)
  • 1/3 cup of cacao nibs/dark chocolate chips

Header granola

Let’s get baking!

First preheat the oven to 170 degrees Celsius. While it heats up, put all the dry ingredients in a bowl together. Take another bowl and mix the honey, melted coconut oil and the juice from the orange until it’s a paste. Pour the paste over the dry ingredients, mixing everything together so that the whole mixture is covered with it.

Place the mixture onto baking paper on a baking tray and bake it for about 25 minutes. When the granola starts to brown a little and becomes firm, it’s done. Take it out of the oven, allow it to cool a little and after you’ve tried this delicious chocolate and orange granola, store the remainders (no you should not eat everything at once) in an air-tight box. There you go, a healthy and tasty breakfast every morning! 🙂

Trust me, this recipe is super easy to make and incredibly delicious! I would love to see how yours turns out! Please tag your photos with #fitgirlcode so I can see your chocolate and orange granola 🙂

And no, this pie doesn’t taste as good as it looks… it tastes waaay better!

Laura: Tastes almost the same as the original.

Joey: This cookie tastes how coco is supposed to taste like, I like it!

Andrea: Nice, but it’s not like a real chocolate chip cookie which I expected. Doesn’t taste as sweet.

Healthy Homemade Granola

For some strange reason I have this biological granola clock. When Spring starts I love to eat yoghurt with granola in the morning. I can eat it alsmost every day for months. And then as soon as Fall comes around, I’m tired of it. That’s usually when I make a switch to eating (warm) oats in the morning.

Anyway. A little more than a year ago I stumbled uppon this super easy recipe for homemade granola. This recipe is so much healthier than any store bought granola. And to tell you the truth, it tastes a lot better too!

EASY HEALTHY HOMEMADE GRANOLA RECIPE

Prep Time: 10 min
Total Time: 20 min
Serves 4-6

These measurements are flexible; don’t worry too much about being exact.

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups raw, whole rolled oats (aka old fashion oats)
  • ½ cup raw nuts, chopped
  • Âź cup raw seeds (sunflower or pumpkin seeds are great)
  • ½ cup unsweetened dried fruit, chopped (optional)
  • 2-3 tablespoons grade-b maple syrup or raw honey (or a combo of both)
  • 2 tbsp virgin coconut oil or other healthy cooking oil
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract or almond extract
  • 1 large pinch fine sea salt
Recipe: Preheat the oven to 300º F. Combine all ingredients in a mixing bowl and use your clean hands to mix well and toss to coat; it will be sticky and messy but that’s the fun part. The coconut oil might be liquid or solid depending on the temperature of the room you are in (it has a melting point of about 75ºF.) Your hands will warm it up and melt it into the mixture if it’s solid, just be sure to mix it all through the other ingredients so there aren’t any chunks of oil left. Spread the mixture in a thin layer on a baking sheet and bake for 10 minutes, until very lightly toasted. (To make this recipe completely raw-friendly, dehydrate the mixture 5-6 hours at 115ºF in a food dehydrator instead.) Cool before serving or storing. This granola can be kept in an airtight container in a cool, dry place for up to 2 weeks. I keep mine in a mason jar in the refrigerator at home and in a BPA-free plastic bag when traveling.

No bake apple pie

When there is a situation that needs pie, I always get asked to make my no bake apple pie. Like the other week, it was my brother’s birthday and my mother sneakily asked my boyfriend if I could bring my apple pie. He loves it too, so of course he told her I would make one. They even made my pie at a national athletics competition last month. So before I need to bring it everywhere I go, I’ll just teach you girls how to make it.  

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup almonds
  • 2 cups dates
  • 1 cup walnuts
  • 6 Big  Goudreinette apples
  • 2 tablespoons of cinnamon
  • juice from half a lemon
  • 4 drops vanilla extract

DSC_0360

1 Soak the dates in hot water so they get soft.

2 Grind the almonds in a chopping machine (a blender also works), try to keep a little texture, add the soaked dates and mix the two. This is for the bottom of the pie, take a spring form pan (use baking paper on the bottom) and cover the whole bottom with the date/almond mixture. Keep in the fridge.

3  Grind or break the walnuts in small pieces. Peel the six apples and remove the cores. Grate all six apples. (I use my food processor. I once grated them by hand and my arms were so sore, never again!) Mix the walnuts together with the grated apple, cinnamon, lemon juice and vanilla extract.

4 Add the apple mixture to the bottom, decorate and put in the fridge for another half hour so it gets a little more firm.

This apple pie is BIG! You could live of it for a week if you do not share. But I highly recommend you to share it with your friends and family because everybody will love you. 😉 Nothing to celebrate? Still definitely a must make!

Healthy chocolate avocado cookies

These chocolate avocado cookies are one of my favorite things to bake. They’re easy, healthy and don’t take a lot of preparation and time! And there’s chocolate in it – that should be enough reason by itself to be your all-time favorite (healthy) cookie. As a huge chocoholic I could honestly eat the entire batch in one go 😉 I got the recipe from this awesome blog, so all credits really go her for this amazing chocolate avocado cookies recipe!

Ingredients

  • 100 g. (3/4 cup) avocado flesh (ripe, but not brown)
  • ½ cup (120mL) coconut sugar OR honey
  • 1 egg
  • ½ cup (120ml) raw cacao powder
  • 50 g. dark chocolate chunks (make sure the percentage of cacao is above 75% – the higher, the better)
  • ½ tsp. baking soda

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 175°C.
  2. Mix the avocado and coconut sugar/honey in a bowl or a food processor until it’s a smooth consistency. Then add the egg.
  3. Throw in the cacao powder and the baking soda and mix it all.
  4. Break the chocolate in chunks and stir these through. Do NOT use your mixer or food processor, just stir them into the batter.
  5. Get spoonfulls of the cookie dough and place them on the baking sheet. I always use another spoon to get it off the other spoon since the batter is quite thick. They also won’t spread by themselves, so you can flatten them out a bit with the back of the spoon.
  6. Bake them for 8-10 minutes. Check if the cookies don’t stick that much to the paper anymore as they did before you put them in the oven.
  7. Let them cool down. Now eat! 🙂 Or store them in an air-tight container in your fridge so you have some more for the rest of the week or to share with your BFFF.

Healthy Veggie Muffins

It’s cupcake o’clock! I just love making cupcakes. This is because I don’t buy the prepacked ones at the supermarket. They are less tasty than your freshly baked ones, and most of them are unnecessarily full of sugar. Also, whoever thinks cupcakes are only for the sweet tooth, you are more than wrong! Did you know you can make delicious salty ones too!? Eat them as a snack either for lunch or dinner.

This healthy alternative is rich in protein and is packed with delicious vegetables! So yummy. And as for the topping, you can choose any veggies you like. The variations are endless and it makes for a fabulous meal with all those colors!

5 healthy breakfast ideas

Working a full time job and being a Fit Mom and a Fit Girlfriend, I prefer easy and healthy stuff going on in my kitchen. Going through my Instagram account I came across the following 5 healthy breakfast ideas I would like to share with you: 

Quark Sensation

This pink breakfast is fun to eat for the little ones around the house and it will also do you good! For 1 adult serving put the following in your blender:

Quark a Go
– 1 cup quark
– 1/2 cup oats
– 1 cup (frozen)strawberries (or any other type of forest fruit)

Note: Add your powders while you blend or your toppings when you’re done – we usually don’t and have it as it is.

 

 

 

 

Pancakes Go Easy On Me

This recipe is SO easy that my 11 year old Fitgirl usually offers herself to make them!  The following should be enough for 2 adults:

 – 1 cup self raisin flour- 1 cup (almond)milkPancakes go easy

 – 1/4 cup (palm or stevia)sugar (or any sugar in your cabinet)

 – 1 egg

 – 1 apple

 – (coconut)oil or butter for in the pan

Mix or whisk the flour, sugar, milk and egg together till it’s good enough for you. Then, grate the apple through the mixture. Add the butter or oil to your liking in the pan and preferably make small pancakes, the American type or heart shaped ones if you can.

Put whatever you like on top of the pancakes, try to keep it as healthy as possible 🙂 Honey, syrup, jelly, banana, chocolate…and the list goes on.

Spicy nacho dip with avocado, quark and goat cheese

I’ve always loved sauces, dips and things to dip in sauces and dips. I bought pre-fabricated guacamole for my nachos and burritos. But I recently found out that some of those dips, actually contain less than 1 percent avocado! Holy guacamole: that’s just insane. That should be the main ingredient.

Spicy nacho dip with avocado, quark and goat cheese

Since I’m into clean eating I’m trying to recreate the things I used to buy in jars myself. The homemade versions are always better! I’ve made regular guacamole a few times, but this time I wanted to make a fresher version, that feels a bit lighter. I used avocado (healthy fats!) and quark (protein!) as the main ingredients. Then I added whatever and this little recipe came up.

Here’s some guilt-free dipping!

IMG_5990

Los ingredientes

For 2 people dippin’:

– 1 ripe avocado

The perfect snack: clean apple cake

Confession time: I’m not the type of Fit Girl that spends hours in the kitchen and I usually don’t make pretty pictures of my food. Mostly because it’s gone before I think about making one.. #hangry! Or because it’s just a big mess on my plate.
