Matcha Tea Chia-Pudding

I’ve heard so much about matcha tea lately and it’s all positive. Therefore, I had to get myself a try on it. This is the first recipe I’m making with the matcha tea and more it will be! It’s a real superfood!

Matcha Tea Chia-Pudding (1 portion)

-> Whisk the matcha tea, vanilla powder and milk together until all well blended. Then add the chia seeds and stir well. Pour over to a jar with a lid and put in the fridge over night. Take out in the morning and add the shredded zucchini, stir well and add your favorite toppings. I added the mix “Lördagsgodis Ekologiskt” which is the perfect mixture of cacao nibs, inka-berries, dried mango, and coconut flakes. Also added some blueberries. A delicious and nutritious start of the day!

This breakfast/snack is paleo-friendly, gluten free, dairy free, sugar free and low carb. A real health boost to kick-start the day with.

High Protein Chocolate Balls

I don’t even need to look at the original recipe for my healthy chocolate balls anymore since I make them almost every weekend. They’re so good! Today I felt like trying something different but still similar. 

Ended up being an other alternative to delicious and healthy chocolate balls. These ones include more protein and an even stronger flavor of chocolate thanks to my favorite chocolate protein powder from dxb nutrition. I got my protein powder from Fitnessbutiken

High Protein Chocolate Balls (about 7 large ones) 

-> Put everything in a blender and mix until a dough without any chunks. Roll into balls and then roll them in coconut flakes. An alternative is to roll them in cacao nibs as well, very delicious! Put in the fridge for 20 minutes before starting to snack!  

These chocolate balls are 100 % free from gluten and added sugar. Also high in protein and if you exclude(or use a different kind) the protein powder it’s dairy free and paleo-friendly. 

Homemade Vanilla Granola (made in pan)

The homemade granola I make weekly (it’s my biggest addition!) I make in the oven. Today I tried to make a similar one but in a pan on the stove instead. It gives it a little different texture but it still tasted really good and it went much quicker to make!

Homemade Vanilla Granola (made in pan) 

-> Start to heat up a pan on medium-high, add the coconut oil. When it is melted add the nuts and let them become light brown. Then add the rest of the ingredients and maybe turn down the heat slightly. Stir well so nothing gets burned. When it is all light brown and dry turn of the heat and let cool down before eating.

I enjoy my granola on top of smoothies, yoghurt, quark, with milk, on oatmeal, on pancakes, on fruit salads and more. Just be creative!


This amazing granola is 100% free from gluten, dairy and sugar! 

Chocolate Caramel Balls

I advanced my regular chocolate balls recipe a little to include some more superfoods (maca powder and cacao nibs) and which made them even more delicious!

Chocolate Caramel Balls (8 balls)

  • 2.5 dl gluten free oats
  • 0.75 dl coconut oil
  • 1.5 tablespoon raw cacao powder
  • 1 tablespoon maca powder from Superfood 365
  • 8 pitted dates
  • 2 tablespoons brewed coffee (I had a little cinnamon in my coffee!)
  • a sprinkle of cacao nibs from Superfood 365
  • a sprinkle of sea salt
  • coconut flakes to roll the balls in

-> Put everything in a mixer and mix until a smooth dough. Roll into balls and roll them in the coconut flakes. Put in the fridge for 20-30 minutes before eating them.

Protein Chocolate Nice Cream

Another great recipe for nice cream, especially for all chocolate lovers out there!

Protein Chocolate Nice Cream (1 portion)

-> Put all the ingredients in a bowl and use a stick-blender until it looks like sorbet. Pour over to a bowl and add your toppings. Today I had lots of peanut butter, coconut flakes and mulberries!

This nice cream is 100% free from gluten and added sugar. 

Maca Powder Bread (+ Benefits of Maca)

I must honestly say that this is the best bread I have ever baked. Probably also the tastiest I’ve ever eaten. And it is only made of good healthy and nutritious ingredients! It did not end up dry at all, like some gluten free bread often do, it is perfectly sweet and crunchy with the combination of maca powder and different seeds.

The bread is gluten free, dairy free and free from added sugar.

Maca Powder Bread (1 loaf)

  • 4 dl almond flour
  • 0.5 dl coconut flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 dl sesame seeds
  • 1 dl psyllium seeds
  • 1 tablespoon Maca powder from Gooddays
  • a sprinkle of sea salt
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 dl egg whites
  • 3 dl coconut milk
  • 1 dl melted coconut oil
  • some sunflower seeds (or seeds/nuts of your choice) for topping

-> Start by turning the oven on 200 degrees Celsius. Mix all the dry ingredients in a bowl. In a separate bowl whisk the melted coconut oil, eggs, egg whites and coconut milk. Then pour over the wet mixture to the dry ones and blend well. Let stand for about 5 minutes. Meanwhile, cover a bread mold with coconut oil and sesame seeds. After the 5 minutes, pour over the dough to the bread mold and sprinkle over some sunflower seeds. Put in the middle of the oven for about 40 minutes. Let the bread cool down for 5-10 minutes before taking it out of the bread mold.

Enjoy with your favorite toppings. I would recommend any nutbutter, boiled egg, avocado + cottage cheese, coconut butter or peanutbutter + banana slices.

This bread is 100% free from gluten, dairy and added sugar! 

The benefits of adding Maca powder into your diet:

1. Vitamins
Maca is rich in vitamin B vitamins, C, and E. It provides plenty of calcium, zinc, iron, magnesium, phosphorous and amino acids.

2. Sexual function
Maca has long been used to promote sexual function of both men and women. It’s thought to boost libido and increase endurance. It has also been used to balance the hormones and increase fertility. Note the these benefits are anecdotal.

3. Women’s health and mood
Maca has been used to relieve menstrual issues and the side effects of going through menopause. Some women have used it to alleviate cramps, body pain, hot flashes, anxiety, mood swings, and depression. Like the benefits of #2 above, these are anecdotal and shouldn’t be used in place of consulting with a practitioner. If you are pregnant or lactating you should avoid taking maca.

4. Energy
Some have experienced an increase in energy level within days of beginning to use maca. It is also known for increasing stamina. Many athletes take maca for peak performance. If you find yourself tired much of the time, experiment with maca to see if it helps. Just a small amount could be exactly what you need for a boost!

An increase in mental energy and focus has been reported by users of maca, as well.

5. General health
Maca helps your overall health in a number of ways. It supplies iron and helps restore red blood cells, which aids in avoiding anemia and cardiovascular diseases. The nutrients in maca may help to keep bones and teeth healthy and help heal wounds more quickly. When used in conjunction with a good workout regime, supplementing with maca may help to increase in muscle mass.

Be very cautious if you have a cancer related to hormones, like testicular and ovarian, among others. If you have liver issues or high blood pressure you should ask your doctor before taking maca.

6. Skin
Many people take maca for skin issues, as for some people it helps to clear acne and blemishes. Another benefit that some users have experienced is that it decreases skin sensitivity. In hot or cold weather, maca may help skin withstand extreme temperatures.

7. Mood balance
If you find yourself overcome with anxiety, stress, depression or mood swings, maca may help alleviate these symptoms, though the evidence for this is anecdotal.
