Pumkin spice 🍎 doughnuts

Who else is feeling the need for comfort food and warming spices?

But you still need to stay healthy? Oh, the struggle, I know. Thats why I wanted to share my latest creation. Pumkin spice apple doughnuts. They are filled with prebiotics, fiber and heathy fats and antinfammatory herbs. They are baked so they are not soaked in unhealthy amounts of fat either. This is all GOODness. They are glutenfree, milkfree and low carb.

I use this spices to make my own pumkin spice mix. Just double the recipe and combine them to keep it around for making lattes or whatever ❀ you know you need too.

Did you know that cloves has 3 times as much antioxidants as Acaii? 😱 those who cunsume a lot of polyphenols have a much richer gut flora than those who don’t. Polyphenols can improve or help treat digestion issues, weight management difficulties, diabetes, neurodegenerative disease, and cardiovascular diseases. Yup nothing wrong with adding this little spice to your life.

I am still working on a no sugar version of this recipe and I will update the blog when I do. πŸ˜‰

12 Pumkin spice 🍎 doughnuts

  • 1 cup organic oatflour
  • 1 cup organic coconut flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 0,5 tsp salt
  • 2 teaspoons organic ceylon cinnamon
  • 1 tsp dried ginger
  • 1 tsp nutmeg
  • 0,5 tsp cloves
  • 1 box (230g) organic white beans
  • 4 organic eggs
  • 1,5 organic apple
  • 5 spoons of organic brown sugar or coconut sugar
  • 1 cup of water
  • 2 spoons of organic coconut oil

Frosting

  • 3 spoons of coconut oil
  • 2 spoons of fine grained brown sugar/coconut sugar
  • 0,5 teaspoon ceylon cinnamon

Start with mixing all the dry ingredients. If you don’t have oatflour already, you can easily grind it in a blender. Or if you can just use straight oatmeal. If you are not a big spice fan you can reduse the spice amount in half. Add the beans after they are rinsed. Then eggs, oil and water. Blend everything except the apple in a blender or with a handheld one. Chop apples in small pieces and mix it gently in with a spatula. Set the oven to 175 degrees.

I use silicon molds, but I like to add a little oil to them so I am sure there will be no sticking. Use a spoon to add the dough to the mold, fill them and pat them flat.

Bake in the middle of the oven on 175 degrees for 25 min.

Let them cool befor adding any frosting. You can even stick them in the freezer too speed up the process. I ❀ lazy cooking. If they are cold the frosting will stick straight away.

Start with heating the coconut oil on low heat. Grind your sugar to powder. Then mix it in the coconut oil with some cinnamon for some extra spice.

Use a spoon and drip the frosting over the cold doghnuts, here you can be as creative as you want. Add some sprinkles or nuts 🌈

Enjoy the fall ❀🍎(insert doghnut emoji)πŸ‚

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

I-scream bites that your gut loves β€

So this is my new go to snack when I am craving something sweet. Truth is that I almost finished the first batch alone b4 anyone got to taste πŸ˜‚β€

It is totally sugarfree, all natural and no chemicals 😱 nutricious and makes your gut happy. But the taste is still amazing. My son screamed in amazement that this was the best icecream he have ever had in his life. He might be brainwashed by our healthy lifestyle, but as a mom I take it to heart ❀ this kind of statements are long inbetween πŸ˜‚

This icecream is 2 layered and the combo is what makes it so yummi.

What you need

Chocolate cream

  • 3 lups of organic cacao butter
  • 1 dl of coconut cream
  • 1 spoon of inulin or fiberfin
  • 1,5 spoons of organic cacao
  • 1 spoon of grass fed collagen
  • 60 drops of stevia
  • 0,5 teaspoon of organic vanilla powder

Vanilla cream

  • 2 organic eggplums
  • 150 gr organic butter
  • 1 dl of coconut cream
  • 0,5 teaspoon of organic vanilla powder
  • 30 drops of stevia
  • 1 spoon of organic lemonjuice

First preapare the choclolate batch, by melting lumps of cocoa fat in a water bath. Add the rest of the ingredients and blend well whith a handheldt mixer. Line a loaf pan with baking paper and pour the mix in. Save a little chocolate mix for the topping. Snap it in the freezer and let it sit for 30 min.

When when that is turning frozen, prep the vanilla egg cream. Melt the butter on slow heat or in a waterbath. Mix the 2 egg plums with the butter slowely, so it doesn’t seperate. Then add the coconutcream little by little and mix in the rest of the ingredients.

When the chocolate is solid enough pour the vanilla cream in. Then spread the rest of the saved up chocolate (you might have to heat it up a lite) and make a cool pattern by stiking a knife into the batter. Pop back in the freezer and let it rest for 45 min before you eat it all by yourself, and have to make a new batch becouse you forgot to share some with your friends and family ❀

Then what you have left you can cut into little squares and store in the freezer, ready for when you need a icecream-fix.

Enjoy, everyday and guilt free❀

Activated seed butter

This is my new craze ❀ I use it for everything. Breakfast chia bowls, spread on bread or pancakes with berries. Yum.

If you allergic to nuts like me then this is an awesome option to all the nut butters out there. Also by soaking and drying the seeds first you get rid of all the phytonutrients that seeds, nuts and grains contain. It may take a little longer to prepare, but you get to enjoy the full spectrum of nutrients the seeds got to offer with no harm to your gut.

What you do to activate

  • Soak a pack of your seed of choice for 8 – 24 hours
  • Rinse the seeds and spread them thin on baking sheets
  • Dry for 5 – 8 hours on max 80 degrees

When I do this I soke and dry 3-4 types of seeds at the time so I don’t have to do it so often.

Making the butter

  • Blender with a s-blade
  • 2 cups of your seed of choice
  • 2-3 spoons of organic virgin coconutoil

Put items in blender. Blend for 2-3 min. DONE! Store in a reusable containerβ™‘ enjoy as is.

Did you know that a 2,5 cup of sunflower seeds contain about 85 % of your daily intake of vitamin E, and 70 % of your copper requirements? And that 100 grams of sesame seeds contains 97% of your needed calcium, 81 % of iron and 87% of what you need of magnesium in a day? What is not to love about that.

Next I will try to add some raw chocolate powder, a little vanilla and some stevia and see what happens 😱
