🍁🍂 Day 27 and we are so close to the weekend I can almost smell it! When I have some extra time I like to experiment in the kitchen (shocker) and this is what I came up with last time. These pretty little things are the perfect balance of naughty and nice as the ingredients are healthy but they taste delicious 😇
What you will need (makes 6):
For the base
– 1/2 cup of peanut butter
– 1 1/4 cup of oats
– 4 tbsp melted coconut oil
– 1/4 cup maple syrup
– 1 tsp almond oil
For the topping
– 1 cup of pitted dark cherries (you can buy these frozen to save the pennies)
– 1 cup coconut milk
– 1 tbsp maple syrup
– 1 tbsp sifted icing sugar
Mix all of the ingredients for the base together in a bowl. Add spoonfuls of the mixture to a cupcake baking tray (trying not to get carried away ‘taste testing’ the mixture). Pat the bases down into the holes until they are smooth.
Use a blender or a food mixer to combine the topping ingredients together. Pour the smooth liquid over the bases.
Place your tray into the freezer for at least 3 hours to set. Use a knife to poke the puds out when they have been out of the freezer for about 10 minutes to soften a little.
* If you’re like me and you like to know what’s in your food, you will be happy to know that these minis are pretty healthy.
* Rewired isn’t going to count the calories in them for you as there are not enough to be worried about.
* The ingredients in these raw cakes have many health benefits and I will list just a few:
– Peanut butter is a wonderful way to introduce good fats and proteins into your diet. You will be helping your heart, your body’s iron absorption, cell development and boosting your metabolism.
– Coconut Milk is a great vegan alternative to dairy, rich in fibre and B vitamins.
– Maple syrup is my favourite sweetener and it is unrefined and natural so far better for you than sugar or ‘stevia.’ It’s great for skin and digestive function and you maybe surprised to find that it is actually relatively high in calcium – amazing!
