Another brilliant variation of my super popular low carb pie recipeHam and Cheese pie.

Again, super yummy and super easy to make; filling this time is basically diced ham, cheese, and oregano!
You can watch the video above to learn how to make it, step-by-step, or simply follow the directions below.

Easy peasy!

  • 4 medium eggs

  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • 1 teaspoon of baking powder

  • 2 cups (340 grams) of mozzarella cheese, diced
  1. In a bowl mix together eggs, tahini, salt, and baking powder.
  2. Line a parchment paper on a cake tin and pour half of this batter in. I’m using a 24 cm square tin.
  3. Then make a layer of ham, followed by mozzarella cheese, finishing with a layer of the remaining batter.
  4. In a preheated oven to 160°C (320°F), bake it for 50 minutes or until golden brown. ⏰

Ah, as you may have noticed, I used tahini for the main recipe, which gives you a nut-free result.
If you’re OK with nuts, you can also use almond butter. 🙂

Flourless Chocolate and Banana Bread • Healthy cakes #10

Posted on

Who doesn’t like the convenience of a flourless recipe?
Even more, if this cake is a healthy option right?

This Flourless Chocolate and Banana Bread recipe is ridiculously simple and still incredibly delicious.

Actually, I would suggest you watching yourself once this beauty is ready … otherwise, the whole cake can end up in your tummy in the blink of an eye. 🤣

Another quick note, I used tahini for a nut-free version, but this cake is equally delicious made with almond or peanut butter!

  • 1 and 1/4 cups (324 grams) of tahini (or almond butter)
  • 3 large eggs, at room temperature
  • 2 medium (260 grams or 1 cup) ripe bananas, sliced and mashed
  • 6 tablespoons (48 grams) of cocoa powder
  • 1 and ½ teaspoons of baking powder
  • A pinch of salt
  1. Add tahini, eggs, bananas, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt to a blender and pulse until smooth and creamy.
  2. Grease a cake pan with coconut oil and cover it with a baking sheet. I used a 20cm loaf pan here.
  3. Now, add in the batter to the pan.
  4. In a preheated oven to 180°C (350°F), bake it for 45 minutes. ⏰
  5. Depending on your oven, it might take more or less to be ready.
    The right moment is when a toothpick inserted in the centre of the bread comes out clean.
  6. IT’S DONE! 🎉

Posted on


Winter is knocking on the door, and the only thing you can think of is to have a cozy and warm meal, right?

Which means you have only thing in mind these days: soup, soup, and soup!

To help you out, this week we are having here this gorgeous cauliflower and Spanish chorizo creamy soup.

It is low carb, super tasty, and has that spicy Spanish chorizo kick perfect for cold nights.
In case you are not a fan of chorizo, you can use any other type of sausage as well.

  • 4 cups (500 grams) of cauliflower
  • 1/2 medium (85 grams) onion, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon of minced garlic
  • 2 chorizos (375 grams), sliced
  • 2 cups of fresh spinach (50 grams), chopped
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
  1. In a pot add chorizo and toss it until well cooked. Then move to another container and reserve.
  2. In the same pot, add onion and garlic, cooking until tender.
  3. Next, add cauliflower and cover it with boiling water, letting it cook until the cauliflower is soft.
  4. Turn off the heat and, using a stick blender (or pour it in a blender), blend everything until you have a smooth mixture.
  5. Now you simply add in that chorizo we previously cooked, and also the spinach.
    Season with salt and black pepper to taste. Cook it for more 10 minutes. ⏰
  6. It’s DONE! 🎉
    Enjoy your cauliflower and Spanish chorizo creamy soup!

This soup also works fine if you freeze it to have another day. 🙂
