Fabulous Fat Bombs

Fat Bombs are an excellent way to get a concentrated source of high-quality fats that will provide energy and even satisfy your sweet tooth! Fat bombs are the perfect antidote for sweet cravings, but without the sugar. And the magic secret? They will actually keep you full.

I love adding the pinch of Himylan salts Himalayan salt is also mined from ancient sea beds, so it is pure from modern environmental toxins. It provides a whopping 84 trace minerals. Himalayan salt benefits include supporting weight loss, detox, and balanced hormones.

One great thing about this recipe is that theres no real cooking. It’s a very simple treat to make and you’ll want to make it over and over again.

NOTE : If you increase your healthy fat  keep in mind you you MUST lower your carbs otherwise you are back on the unhealthy diet which is high fat and high carbs AND the fat you eat must be a healthy fat such as coconut oil, butter, extra virgin olive oil, avocado etc.

No Bake Healthy snack bars.

Recipe of the week – No Bake Healthy snack bars.

from Caroline Mc Grath

These are a staple in my house – healthy snack bars . They are full of protein, essential fats and low in sugar, and will keep you going. I like them for breakfast or if I need a quick bite between meals. They are a perfect gluten and dairy free snack to bring along when you are on the move.

They are so versatile you can put your own spin on them by adding whatever nuts, seeds or dried fruit you like. I have made these with dark choc chips which is a great way to get my son to eat them. I’ve also made them without any fruit or chocolate chips, but instead with raw cacao powder added to the liquid blend for an extra hit of minerals, vitamins and antioxidants. As raw cacao is bitter, use it to taste by balancing it with the sweetener, preferably rice malt syrup as it is fructose free.

For those with nut allergy and schools that have a no nut policy, just use any blend of seeds instead of nuts and tahini paste instead of nut butter. You can also crumble this into a bowl and add milk for a gluten free granola cereal.

Instructions
  1. Mix your 3 cups of nuts and or seeds in a bowl to combine. Scoop out one cupful and blend on high until it mostly forms a powder or flour, leaving in a few chunky bits.
  2. Scoop out another cupful onto a chopping board and chop these for a mix of textures. Add all back to the bowl and stir.
  3. Add the coconut flakes, and the dried fruit and stir.
  4. In a small saucepan on a low heat, gently melt the coconut oil, nut butter or tahini and sweetener together stirring to blend. Add vanilla extract, the pinch of salt and cinnamon powder to taste.
  5. If using raw cacao, only stir it in a spoonful at a time and taste to see if you need more sweetener. Allow the liquid mix to cool before adding it into the dry mix.
  6. Stir the lot to combine.
  7. If using the choc chips version, add these last. Once all is combined, pour into a glass dish, and press it all down with the back of a spoon, until it looks solid and even.
  8. Put the lid/cover on and allow it to set in the fridge for about a couple of hours before cutting into bars.
