Creamy Coconut Bars

IMG_4692

 For once, I wanted to make a treat that wasn’t chocolatey and these were a huge success with my taste testers  (and myself!). The base is nutty and crumbley with a creamy and coconuty top and they go well with pretty much everything, especially a good cup of coffee! They also keep perfectly in the fridge, tasting just as fresh for about 5 days!

Press the mixture into your baking tin lined with parchment paper (I ran out so I use tin foil!).

Drain the cashews and add them to the food processor and blitz until they’re all broken down and you have a soft mixture.

Add in the coconut and blitz until combined.

Transfer the mixture to a large bowl and then add in the coconut oil and agave and mix until you have a smooth creamy (delicious) mixture.

Eggs al Pomodoro

IMG_4609

As an egg fiend I’m always looking for ways to switch it up and this is one of my favourites lately. The tomato, basil and garlic combo tastes amazing with scrambled eggs and it’s a great healthy, fresh and low carb way to spruce up your breakfast!

Per Person

Ingredients:

3 Eggs

Handful of Cherry Tomatoes, Fresh & Good Quality

4 Large Basil Leaves

1 Clove of Garlic

Olive Oil

Salt & Pepper

 

Chop your cherry tomatoes into little chunks. It’s really important to get good, fresh tomatoes! Finely chop the garlic and roughly chop the basil.

Add them to a bowl with a good drizzle of olive oil and a pinch of coarse salt and toss it all around.

Scramble your eggs how you like (I use 2 whole eggs, one extra egg white with a bit of coconut oil in the pan).

Plate the eggs, top with the tomato mixture, season with salt/pepper and enjoy!
