I don’t spend so much time in the kitchen as I do in the last year. I started my blog round about one year ago and my Instagram 8 months ago. I couldn’t imagine that this would be such a big part in my life. To thank you all for your great support I will run a winning game after my vacation. Can’t wait to share it :o)). Without your support I wouldn’t be here now. I learned so much in the last year about healthy food, work-life-balance and to listen to myself.
It is so important to make things you really love and to avoid too much stress in your life. We need to listen and be honest to our self. Decide what is good for us and what not. The society requirement are so high. Nobody can withstand that permanently. Think about your own possibilities. It’s your life, you are the creator. Remember that!
Maybe these snickers are a good start to make a break ;)?
Hemp seeds healthy benefits
Lots of you asked me for these snickers I made often in the last week. I developed my own version with lots of hemp seeds to add healthy omega-3 fatty acids. Hemp seeds have a mild and nutty flavor. Hemp seeds are also a big protein source, as more than 25% of their total are from high-quality protein. You find also Vitamin E for a perfect skin in these little seeds. If you don’t want to use hemp seeds you can also add more oats. These bars are the best snack before you start a sport workout or get new energy after a half working day. Lots of protein and they make you full for longer! One bar is enough for a few hours.
For these snickers you need a base, a caramel and a chocolate layer. All made from healthy natural ingredients and organic sweetener.
I used peanuts to impart a crunch. Peanuts harmonize perfect with chocolate. The chocolate I made is from coconut oil and raw cacao. In the past I often drank sweetened Cacao. I don’t know if they is a lot of unhealthy sugar in these drinks. In the last months I discovered raw cacao powder you can use instead of the other. In combination with natural sweetener like dates or rice syrup it taste amazing sweet and delicious. I often prepare a drinking cacao in this way.
You need to store them in the freezer. Best time to enjoy is to take them out 15 minutes before serving.
