I don’t post very many recipes for “real dishes” here, mostly breakfast alternatives and what I bake. I felt like this is something I need to share with you. My favorite overall recipe. I would also classify it as fast food (healthy fast food), because it’s so easy and quick to make.
Homemade Basil Chili Pesto (4 portions)
- 2.5 jars fresh basil
- 2 dl Parmesan cheese
- 2 dl roasted pine nuts
- 2.5 dl olive oil
- 2 garlic cloves (pressed)
- A sprinkle of chili flakes (or a small piece of fresh chili of you have at home)
- A sprinkle of Herb salt
- A sprinkle of Black pepper
-> Just put everything in a mixer or food processor and blend until smooth and no chunks. If it’s too thick add more olive oil. Taste of you need more spices, Basil or garlic.
There are of course a million ways to eat the Pesto. I add it to almost anything. But the first recipe with it this weekend me and my friend made it raw and simple!
- Zucchini noodles
- Roasted walnuts
- Cocktail tomatoes
Just mix it all on your plate and ENJOY!
When I just have a little as left overs I love to add the Pesto to an omelet with eggs, spinach and red onion. With some broccoli and avocado on the side. Delicious!
The Pesto is of course free from gluten and added sugar!
My absolute favorite snacks. Healthy, taste great and easy/quick to make! The original recipe is from Ida Warg but I have changed it a little bit, I believe my recipe is a little better!
Healthy Chocolate balls (12 medium-sized)
-> Mix everything, except the cacao nibs and coconut flakes, in a strong mixer until it becomes a dough. Then add the cacao nibs and blend with a spoon. Form into balls and roll them in the coconut flakes. Put in the fridge for 20 minutes. Take out and ENJOY a delicious and healthy snack filled with nutrition and superfoods.
These chocolate balls are free from gluten, dairy and added sugar. Also I believe lchf, vegan and lowfod map friendly! A real superfood snack!
This is for sure a recipe I will do multiple of times more. Perfect for any chocolate-lover who likes/wants to eat healthy. Easy and quick to make!
Raw Chocolate Cake
- 200g nuts (I took half walnuts and half cashews)
- 120g pitted dates
- A sprinkle of sea salt
- More nuts or fresh berries for topping
-> Start with the bottom and mix the nuts, dates and sea salt in a mixer until it’s like a dough, some pieces are ok. Put some baking paper at the bottom of a cake-form and press out the dough. Then put the rest of the ingredients in the mixer and mix until a creamy chocolate mousse. Spread out over the bottom layer and put in the fridge for 1-2 hours.
Take out and add some chopped nuts (I used walnuts) and/or fresh berries on top. Fresh raspberries would be a perfect combination!
This cake is 100% gluten free, dairy free, free from added sugar and lchf, vegan and raw food friendly.
Long time since I made some of these delicious wraps. My absolute favorite “bread” and they’re so easy to make!
Vanilla Protein Cauliflower Wraps (3 medium-sized wraps)
-> Turn the oven on 200 degrees Celsius. Start by mixing the cauliflower to small crumbles. In a separate bowl, whisk the egg whites hard. Add all the ingredients to the egg whites and blend carefully. Put some coconut oil on a baking paper on a oven tray and pour out the “dough”. Spread out until it’s about 1/2 cm thick. Mine usually ends up being about 20×30 cm. Put in the oven for 10-12 minutes until it’s light brown. Take out and let cool down.
My absolute favorite toppings for this wrap is any kind of nut butter, and a lot of it! Tastes just as good warm as cold. ENJOY!
This wrap is 100% gluten free and free from added sugar. Depending on the protein powder you use it can also easily be made dairy free and paleo-friendly. It also works well to add 1 teaspoon vanilla powder instead of protein powder.
My absolute favorite from all the Christmas candy I made this year are these healthy Snickers. The combination of peanuts and chocolate is hard to beat!
Sugar free Snickers (12-16 pieces)
- 200 grams sugar free dark chocolate
- 200 grams sugar free peanutbutter
- 125 grams roasted peanuts
- A sprinkle of sea salt (if the peanuts are not salted)
- 1 dl coconut flakes
- 2 tablespoons coconut oil
-> Start by melting half of the chocolate, add some coconut oil if it’s not rinny enough. Pour over on a piece of baking paper in a square (about 20 x 20 cm). Put in the fridge for a few minutes while you continue with the filling. Heat up the peanutbutter a little, add 1 tablespoon of melted coconut oil and stir well. Add the peanuts, salt and coconut flakes and mix until it’s all well blended. Take out the melted chocolate from the fridge and put over a layer of the filling (about 1/2-1 cm thick layer). Then melt the rest of the chocolate and pour over until it’s all covered. Sprinkle over some extra coconut flakes and put in the fridge for about 15 minutes. ENJOY a healthy and delicious snack/candy fillies with good fats.
These are 100 % gluten free and free from added sugar. Depending on the chocolate you use it can also easily be dairy free.
One of the best things with Christmas, saffron? It can be used in so many different ways, in baking, food recipes, desserts, breakfasts, bread and more! Here is one of my favorites:
Saffron Chia-Pudding (1 portion)
-> Put all the ingredients except the zucchini in a jar with a lid. Stir well until all the chia-seeds are covered. Put in the fridge over night, or at least for 2-3 hours. Tak out in the morning and add the shredded zucchini (also squeeze out the water). If you prefer a warm breakfast you can heat it up on the stove real quick or in the microwave for 1-2 minutes. Add your desired toppings.
My favorite toppings for this chia-pudding is oranges, Sharon fruit, nutbutter, gojiberries, blueberries and mulberries.
This chia-pudding is paleo-friendly, which also means free from gluten, dairy and added sugar.
Want to read more about the Baobab powder? It’s a real superfood and you can find more information HERE.
I love to experiment with new recipes (as many of you know by now), and especially new breakfast alternatives. This morning my experiment ended up fantastic, it got a flavor of caramel and chocolate made of different types of superfood!
Most of the products I made to make this delicious breakfast comes from a new organic, raw and superfood brand I discovered a few weeks ago: Gooddays. They support a health lifestyle 365 days of the year, which is exactly what I strive to inspire my followers to. To eat healthy and nutritious is not a diet is a lifestyle! It should be fun, delicious and give the energy/nutrients needed.
I was excited to get home some of their products. This is the first recipe I’ve experimented with since I got the products and it turned out more than well! So I would advice you to first check out their website and then try this recipe for a easy, quick and healthy start of your day!
Caramel Chocolate Chia-pudding (1 portion)
-> Start the evening before (or at least 3-4 hours before planning to eat). Blend all the ingredients except the zucchini in a jar with a lid. Stir well and make sure all the chia seeds are covered by milk. Put in the fridge over night. Take out in the morning and add the shredded zucchini (squeeze out the water from the zucchini first), blend well. Pour over to a bowl and add your desired toppings! It also works to heat it up in the microwave if you prefer your breakfast hot. Simple, healthy and delicious breakfast!
Also a perfect alternative if you need to take your breakfast “on the go”.

This chia-pudding is 100% free from gluten, dairy and added sugar. It is also paleo-friendly (just switch out the peanutbutter on the topping to another nutbutter). It is also raw food, low in carbohydrates and lchf!
