Posted on

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 cup (260g) of tahini (or almond butter)
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • 1 teaspoon of baking powder
  • 2 cups (340 grams) of ham, diced
  • 1 tablespoon of dried oregano
  • 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. ⏰

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! 🎉

Peanut butter cookies • Healthy cookies #3

Posted on

These Peanut Butter Cookies are a great option for a snack, kids lunch box, or even an on-the-run breakfast.

Can’t deal specifically with peanuts? This recipe works perfectly with any other nut butter.
I’ve tried with almond and cashew nut butter (the latter is dangerously delicious though, lol).

Another cool thing about this healthy cookie recipe is that you can easily spread the dough with a rolling pin and use your cookie cutters!

  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup (130 grams) of sugar free peanut butter (or almond butter)
  • 1/4 cup (35 grams) of coconut flour
  • 1 tablespoon of coconut sugar
  • 1 teaspoon of ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon of ground cloves
  • 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda
  • 1 tablespoon of apple cider vinegar
  • A pinch of salt
  1. Add all ingredients into a large bowl and gently work them together using your hands until you have a nice ball of dough.
  2. This dough is very easy to work with, you can either roll it out, finishing cookie cutters or just shape them into balls like I did here.
  3. Place cookies on a baking tray covered with parchment paper.
  4. Preheat oven to 180°C (356°F) and bake them for 25 minutes. ⏰
  5. Let them cool down completely before removing from the tray.
  6. It’s DONE! 🎉
    Now enjoy your peanut butter cookies!

Tip: For a lower carb version, replace coconut sugar with an artificial sweetener of your choice.

Banana bread has a special place in my heart.
Why? Well, it’s simple, it’s not every day that you find something that is the perfect combination of bread and cake, right?

This time I decided to level it up by adding walnuts and dark chocolate chips.
