Reece’s Almond Butter Splodges

Ingredients

190g Almond butter

2tbsp Coconut Flour

3tbsp Honey

1tsp Vanilla Essence

130g Dark Chocolate or dairy free chocolate

Makes 16 Treats

 

  • Mix the almond butter, coconut flour, honey and vanilla essence into a bowl until it makes a smooth mixture.
  • Mould with hands into the shape of ball around 1 inch in size (or whatever shape you wish them to be)
  • Place on baking paper and put them in the fridge for around 10 minutes while you melt the chocolate – this will allow the mixture to become firmer.
  • Melt chocolate – (In a saucepan/microwave) until it is smooth and runny
  • Using a folk, dip the balls into the chocolate and cover them evenly
  • Leave in the fridge until they have cooled down and set.

 

This recipe is really easy to follow, and they are really simple to make.

You can use other butters such as peanut butter, seed butters or mixed nut butters. I used Almond butter as the person they were made for cannot eat peanut butter.

I used dark chocolate to cover them, but you can use a chocolate of your preferred choice.

By using coconut flour, they are gluten free and can be dairy free is you use dairy free chocolate. For this occasion, I didn’t use dairy free chocolate and the person they were for can eat dark chocolate.

Overall, they are a very delicious treat and I would highly recommend trying out the recipe.

Gluten and Dairy Free

Recently I have been trying to eat healthier and looking into which foods could help to improve my health and help me get the most out of my body. I currently suffer from Asthma and decided to research if this could be improved through diet.

Asthma –A respiratory condition marked by attacks of spasm in the bronchi of the lungs, causing difficulty in breathing. It is usually connected to allergic reaction or hypersensitivity.

From watching quite a few YouTube videos I discovered that by going gluten free and dairy free this could vastly improve my asthma.

After looking into this I have become informed on how diet can help so many illnesses and conditions that I had never really thought about before.

Therefore, over the next few weeks or so I am going to slowly start to bring this diet into my lifestyle. I am not going to stop taking my inhalers as this could be dangerous, but I am going to try to see if there is any improvement in how often I need to take them.

I will be sharing a few recipes that I try out and I will be letting you know if there are any improvements that I notice along the way.

If anyone had any tips/recipes they know of then please feel free to share 🙂
