Prebiotic cookies ❀

So you probably have heard alot about probiotics, but what about prebiotics?

Prebiotics is the food your gut bacteria needs to grow and thrive. Different bacteria eat different prebiotics. The best way to feed your bacteria is to eat a great variety of food including resistant starch, fiber and prebiotics.

One great source of prebiotics is beans. And how to make your family eat more beans? Answer is cookies ❀

I will give you 2 recipes, one for pumkin pieπŸŽƒ and one for chocolate 🍫

I made the pumkin pie with stevia and the chocolate with coconut sugar. But you can use your own preferred sweetener. This recipe is gluten and milk free and gives about 16 cookies each.

Pumkin pie cookies

  • 230 g preboiled white beans
  • 2 organic egg
  • 0,5 dl water
  • 1/2 cup organic coconut flour
  • 1/2 cup fiberfin (or any other flour you like)
  • 1/2 cup pumkin seed flour or almond flour (this is just grained pumkin seeds)
  • 4 spoons of coconut oil
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 0,5 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2,5 teaspoon of punkin spice powder
  • 6 droppers of Stevia
  • 0,3 teaspoon of licorice root

Chocolate cookies

  • 230 g preboiled organic white beans
  • 2 organic egg
  • 2,5 dl water
  • 1/2 cup organic coconut flour
  • 1/2 cup fiberfin (or any other flour you like)
  • 1/2 cup pumkin seed flour or almond flour
  • 4 spoons of coconut oil
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 3 spoons organic cacao powder
  • 4 spoons coconut sugar

Mix all the ingredients in a bowl and blend with a handheld mixer until you get a smooth mixture. (Do you want how to make your own pumkin spice mix? πŸ˜‰ let me know, it’s quite easy)

Set the oven to 170 degrees.

Here comes the tricky part. The dogh needs to be shaped into little balls. Its quite sticky so wetting your hand before rolling is really helpful. Use a spoon to measure the dogh then roll about 16 balls.

Press the balls flat using your fingers. For a fun twist add some texture with something you have in the kitchen, I used a old school potato smasher. Or maybe you would add some nuts on top if you are not allergic like me.

Then insert in oven and fry for about 20 min. (Check after 15)

Let them chill a little then enjoy ❀

Let me know which one you like the best if you try them both. My son actually liked the punkin spice better. I am starting to suspect he doesnt like chocolate or sugar? πŸ€”πŸ˜‚

Have a great weekend. Thx for reading β€πŸ‘Œ

Macao ❀ a natural antidepressant

Winter is here, it’s dark and its cold. With the lack of sun for 5-6 months it’s easy to get a little blue.

I struggled for years with seasonal depression. But in my search for natural remedies I have managed to find some things that actually work.

I selfmedicate with chocolate! No joke. Cacao has many benefits. One of the things becouse it’s high in flavanols, it acts like a mood stabilizer within our body. Make sure to use raw cacao for the most benefits.

I also like to add Maca. It is an adoptogen, which help the body to deal with stressors. It is a root from peru used to improve mood, also used to improve both male and female libido (nothing wrong with that right?).

So what happens when you mix this into into a beverage? You get a tasty Macao ❀ this is my Christmas edition

  • 1 cup of water
  • 1 sp raw cacao
  • 1 tsp maca
  • 0,4 tsp cardamom
  • 0,4 tsp Ceylon cinnamon
  • 0,4 tsp powdered ginger
  • 0,8 tsp clowes
  • 0,4 liquorice root
  • 0,4 tsp turmeric
  • 0,4 tsp of vanilla
  • Drizze of pepper
  • 1 sp collagen
  • 2 sp coconut milk
  • 1sp coconut oil
  • 15-30 drops of liquid stevia

First boil the water. If you don’t use geletanized Maca I recommend that you boil it becouse raw Maca contains some starches that can cause digestive stress.

Then add the rest of the ingredients and blend with a hand mixer.

Enjoy ❀

A fun fact is that if you eat chocolate right before taking a test you are more ligthly to perform better. Meaning smart people eat lot’s of cacao. πŸ˜‰
