Black Bean Dream Chocolate Cake

This is my new hangup this days. Comforting chocolate cake made with lots of fiber and prebiotics, NO SUGAR, gluten free and diary free, it’s seriously all goodness πŸ‘Έ

Becouse real life has crumbs ❀

Black beans is filled with fiber, Iron, vitamin B6, folate, magnesium, potassium, phosphorus, manganese and copper. It’s also a strong antioxidant with both quercetin and saponins which acts a natural anti inflammatory and protetects the heart. Plus it’s prebiotic properties, feeding the good bacterias in your gut.

In my quest to improve my gut health I am trying to find more ways to incorporate beans in my everyday life, and I feel cake is really a great way to do that. Becouse cake. This cake is so healthy you can eat it EVERY DAY 😱 I know ❀

Ingredients:

  • 3 organic egg
  • 2 boxes organic black beans (230 grams)
  • 2 organic bananas
  • 7 droppers stevia
  • 2 spoons honey/fiber sirup
  • 0,5 cup organic nixamalized corn flour
  • 0,5 fiberfin/ organic oatflour
  • 0,5 teaspoon baking soda
  • Pinch salt
  • 3 spoons organic coconut oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 6 spoons cacao

175 degrees 25 – 30 min

Mix everything in a bowl and use a hand mixer to make the dough smooth. Or you can use a blender. If you don’t have cornflour you can switch this for any glutenfree flour you have at hand, for instance almond flour or just add more oat flour. I am a big fan of using what we already have to prevent food waste.

Use a cake shape that is around 23 cm diameter. Grease the shape with coconut oil, before pouring the mixure in. Insert in preheated oven. Leave for 25-30 min. Check after 25 min with a wooden pin, if it comes out greasy you have to leave it longer.

When it’s done, let it rest for 10-15 min before cutting.

Is not cracked it just have personality. Ok.

Serve with rasberry sorbet and chopped chocolate chips ontop ❀❀❀

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
