In a blender add olive oil, milk, egg, salt, and parmesan cheese. Then mix until well combined.
Once combined, add the tapioca flour in three steps (½ cup each) until all of the tapioca flour has been added.
Mix well on high, scraping down the sides of the blender so that everything is nicely blended.
Grease a mini muffin tin and pour the batter in, leaving some space unfilled as they will raise considerably.
Bake them at 200C (400F) for 20 minutes or until they are light golden brown.
It’s done! 🎉
Did you know? The brazilian cuisine has a variety of dishes and snacks; some of them very popular in a particular region of the country, while completely uncommon in other parts. Cheese Puffs, for example, are more frequently found in the Eastern Central area of the country, mainly in the state of Minas Gerais and its capital, Belo Horizonte.
I simply love these Flourless Dark Chocolate Cookies ❤️.
They are super rich in flavour, chocolaty, crunchy on the outside and moist inside, more like a brownie texture. The perfect healthy cookies for an afternoon tea treat!
These cookies are also super quick to make, in a few minutes you wipe everything up and will be popping them in the oven to bake. In seconds your entire house will smell like chocolate (not sugar, by the way, because we are using dark chocolate here). 😊
1/2 cup of coconut oil
1/3 cup of coconut sugar
1 large egg
1 cup of cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon of baking soda
A pinch of salt
1/3 cup of dark chocolate (86%), chopped (optional, but recommended)
In a stand mixer beat together coconut sugar and coconut oil.
Then add egg and mix until well combined.
Next add, cocoa powder, baking soda, and a pinch of salt. Then using a spatula, mix well all ingredients.
Now it’s time to add the chopped dark chocolate. This step is optional but I can totally recommend doing it; it gives a nicer gooey texture to this cookie.
Split the dough into small balls and place them on a baking tray covered with parchment paper.
Bake it for 15 minutes at 180C (350F).
It’s done. Let it cool down before serving.
Did you know? Cookies are understood to have been created more than 1,300 years ago – 7th century A.D – in the region of the planet then called Persia (today Iran). Pretty much every single country on Earth has at least one recipe that is popular for a particular date or cause, such as the Anzac Biscuits here in Australia.
I truly believe I’ve finally unlocked the Awesome Gluten Free Muffin achievement with this recipe. What a winner! 🏆
These Chocolate and Peanut butter muffins are super fluffy and moist as a cake should be.
They are also dairy free and packed with fibre and good stuff. Perfect for those days you need a treat or just want to have a healthy cake option with your cup of coffee! 🙂
⅔ cup of sesame seeds
6 medium eggs
½ cup of coconut oil, melted
⅓ cup of honey (or any sweetener you like)
⅓ cup of coconut flour
¼ cup of cocoa powder
1 teaspoon of psyllium husks
2 teaspoons of baking powder
A pinch of salt
¼ cup of unsweetened peanut butter
In a food processor add the sesame seeds and mix for 4 minutes.
Then, add eggs, coconut oil, honey and mix them for more 5 minutes.
Next, let’s add the coconut flour, baking powder, psyllium husks, cocoa powder, and salt. Mix just enough to incorporate all ingredients.
Grease your muffin tin and pour the batter in, filling only half of it.
We are going to use peanut butter as a delicious filling, so add 1 teaspoon of peanut butter to each and cover with the remaining batter.
Preheat oven at 180C (350F) and bake it for 30 minutes.
It’s done! 🎉
Tip #1: for a lower carb version, replace honey with an artificial sweetener of your choice.
Tip #2: be aware that many supermarket brands of peanut butter usually include unwelcome ingredients in their composition such as salt, a sweetener such as sugar, and an emulsifier or vegetable oil. As usual the list of ingredients is your friend, make sure to read it carefully.
These Cauliflower buns are super light and perfect for having on that occasional burger night!
Yes, once again cauliflowers proving how versatile they’re! I honestly believe cauliflowers are working their way to conquer the world and make us their slaves. They already got me!
Jokes apart, these lovely buns are also a great low carb bread alternative, with only 5 grams of net carbs in each bun! How about having a guilt-free burger tonight with these buns? I’m quite sure your family will love the idea.
Split the dough into 4 equal pieces. Give each piece a gentle squeeze to extract any liquid excess.
Then, shape each one of them in a ball, like a burger bun.
Place buns in a baking tray covered with parchment paper.
Bake them in a preheated oven at 180C (356F) for 1 hour or until they are set through and golden brown.
It’s done! Time to assemble that monster burger everyone would die for. 😂
Did you know? According to the Better Health channel, from the Australian government, cauliflower is a great food to be consumed with relative frequency. Naturally fat-free and low in sugar, cauliflowers are an excellent source of vitamin C, also high in dietary fibre and folate.
