Ginger Bran Muffins

Sometimes I see a recipe or idea and it just gets stuck in my head. For this particular recipe it was a photo posted by Alberto Nunez, of 3DMJ on his instgram account. It was of a bran muffin. Bran muffin’s aren’t something I would even have thought about before, but here it was going More…

Peanut Butter Dark Chocolate Prownies

If last week’s super indulgent chocolate brownies fall into the ‘oh no’ category then these prownies (healthy low-carb protein brownies) might be more your style. The trick to keeping these moist is to use a combination of protein powders. For this recipe I chose to experiment with hemp protein.

Hazelnut and Choc-Hazelnut Macaroons (sugar-free/gluten-free/dairy-free)

Did you know that there are claims that cinnamon: can have favorable effects on brain function and memory soothes the stomach, and may help prevent ulcers suppresses the bacteria that More…
