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!
First time I tried to make a healthy alternative to pannacotta. We made one with coconut flavor and added passion fruit as topping! If you like coconut you should definitely try it!
Coconut Pannacotta (2 portions)
- 4 dl coconut cream
- 1/2 tablespoon vanilla powder
- 2 gelatin sheets
- 1 tablespoon coconut sugar (or other sweetener)
- 2 passion fruit for topping
-> Start by putting the gelatin sheets in cold water for 5 minutes. Meanwhile, put the coconut cream to boil on medium heat, add the vanilla powder. Let boil for 1-2 minutes. Take off the heat and add the gelatin sheets and coconut sugar, stir well. Pour over to two glasses and place in the fridge for at least 2 hours. Take out and put some passion fruit on top. ENJOY!
This dessert is 100% free from gluten, dairy and refined sugar.
Remember the Rawfood chocolate cake I made not that long ago. It became a favorite for everyone trying it. Therefore, I decided to experiment to make something similar but portion dessert. Ended up just as good as the cake!
Raw Chocolate Desserts (6-8 portions)
-> Put some baking paper in portion-forms or cupcake forms. Melt the coconut oil. Then mix all the ingredients except the coconut oil and the gojiberries in a mixer until smooth. Then add the melted coconut oil and mix a little more. Pour over to the portion forms. Sprinkle some gojiberries and some extra cacao nibs on top and put in the fridge for at least 15 minutes. Then enjoy this fantastic chocolate dessert!
Store in the fridge up to one week.
These Desserts are Rawfood, vegan, lchf, lowcarb and of course 100% free from gluten, dairy and added sugar!
A favorite dessert on repeat.
Chocolate Mousse with Dates/Roasted Hazelnut Sprinkles (4-5 glasses)
- 1.5 dl pitted dates
- 175g roasted hazelnuts
- Fresh raspberries
-> Start with the sprinkles and roast the hazelnuts in the oven on 200 degrees C for about 10-12 minutes if you don’t have roasted ones ready. Let them cool down and then mix them together with the dates a little. It should still be chuncks for the crunchy texture.
Then make the mousse by mixing all the rest of the ingredients in a mixer until smooth.
Alternate the sprinkles, chocolate mousse and raspberries in high glasses. Put in the fridge for at least 15 minutes.
This dessert is 100% free from gluten, dairy and added sugar. It’s also lchf, lowcarb and vegan.

Tried a new type of “Oatless oatmeal”, which I would say is very nice to your stomach. It’s easy and quick to make.
Oatless Oatmeal (1 portion)
- 1 large rape banana
- 1 egg
- 2 dl almond milk
- 1 tablespoon psyllium seeds
- 1 teaspoon psyllium husk
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla powder
- 1 tablespoon Rose hip powder Superfood365 from Gooddays
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/2 zucchini, shredded
-> Start by mashing the banana in a pot. Add all the other ingredients except the zucchini and bring to boil on medium heat. Stir frequently. When it thickens, lower the temperature and add the shredded zucchini after you’ve squeezed out the water from it. Stir well for about 30 seconds. Then take off the heat and pour over to a bowl.
Add toppings, today I had a mountain of peanut butter, kiwi, gojiberries and coconut smileys.
This bowl of oatmeal is 100% free from gluten, dairy and added sugar. If you switch out the peanutbutter to another nutbutter it will also be paleo. I would also say that it’s lchf and low carb.
