I made healthy chocolate bites today following my usual recipe – I just added in some raspberries to make them raspberry flavour. Tastes really good!
I love my usual chocolate bites but it is nice to try a different flavour for a change. Lidl sells a nice raspberry dark chocolate. I got the idea for raspberry flavour from that.
I mashed up about 10 raspberries and mixed in with all the other ingredients.
My throat was a bit sore so I made this pear soup. According to Chinese medicine pears are good for the throat. They are supposed to get rid of excess heat in the body or something.
To make the soup I just chopped up some pears and put them in a pot with some water and boiled for about 15 minutes. I added some ginger and honey.
After eating this soup my throat felt much better. I highly recommend trying this if you have a sore throat.
These healthy chocolate bites are made with dates, oats, nuts, cacao powder and cacao butter. It is an old recipe on my blog. I am told this is one of my best recipes. I make these at least once a week. They make a great snack. Everybody who tastes them says they like them. 🙂

Healthy Chocolate Bites
This is the same recipe as my Apple Crumble. I just replaced apples with pears. Tastes great as well!
A healthy and tasty apple crumble recipe
3 cooking apples
juice of 1 small lemon
10 tablespoons porridge oats
4-5 tablespoons mixed nuts
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
a drop of vanilla essence
3 tablespoons olive oil
Step 1: Peel, core and chop apples. Put in baking dish along with lemon juice. Mix well.
Step 2: Put oats and nuts in nutri bullet (or alternative blender). Grind for a few seconds so oats and nuts are roughly chopped (do not grind to a fine powder).
Step 3: Put oat and nut mixture into mixing bowl along with sugar, cinnamon, vanilla essence and olive oil. Mix everything together well.
Step 4: Spread mixture on top of apples. Bake in oven preheated to 180 c for about 30 minutes.
Step 5: It should look like this when it’s done.
Step 6: This crumble is nice served hot with yogurt or ice cream.
Here is a photo of my first attempt at making healthy chocolate muffins with oats, nuts, cacao, avocado, yogurt, milk and honey. They smell really good and the taste isn’t bad… but I think I made the mixture too wet. Hopefully next time I will be more successful at making them. Then I will share a recipe. Sometimes we don’t get things right straight away…
A healthy, tasty, high-protein chocolate spread
1 tin chickpeas
about 2 tablespoons cacao powder or cocoa powder (use more for a richer chocolate taste)

a drop of vanilla essence
a few drops of water
Step 1: Rinse and drain chickpeas. Put in nutri bullet (or alternative blender) along with cacao powder, honey, vanilla essence and a little bit of water.
Step 2: Blend until smooth. Add some more water if it is too thick.
Step 3: Enjoy this hummus on bread or crackers. It should be OK kept in the fridge for a few days.
