Pistachio Muffins – low calorie

IMG_9897

So I have been busy lately, that I have had no time to write any recipes, it’s actually a long time ago  since I made these, they are super delicious and completely low calorie, even though I don’t focus so much on low-calorie food anymore, there will still be room for healthy alternative once in a while, and all January will be filled with low-calorie food only. These muffins are with bananas and pistachio nuts and they are great for a grab and go breakfast or the lunch box, and only 110 calories per muffin, yay 🙂

Ingredients:

2 eggs

120 gram Greek Yoghurt

2 large bananas (or tree small)

175 gram wheat flour

3 tbs. pistachio nuts

60 gram Sukrin ( or sweetener of your choice)

25 gram almond meal (you can sub with wheat flour, but almond meal gives them a delicious texture)

1 tsp. cardamom

1 vanilla pod

1 tsp. baking powder

Instructions:

– Preheat the oven for 175 degrees.

– Mash the bananas and mix it with all the wet ingredients.

– Mix all the dry ingredients in a separate bowl, and then mix them with the wet ingredients.

– Pour the dough into 12 silicone molds, sprinkle with a little pistachio nuts and bake them in the oven for 18-20 minutes.

Each of these muffins contains around 110 calories, so they are perfect for a healthy snack and very easy to bring with you, so much better than these muesli bars full of sugar.

White Chocolate Christmas Stars

IMG_6634

Happy 1st of December 🙂

These chocolate stars are so easy and simple to make, it doesn’t take more than 20 minutes. So if you’re looking for at an easy, yet still homemade Christmas snack, this is the one. You can of course choose to make it with dark or milk chocolate, but I really have a thing for white chocolate, so this was how I made them.

Ingredients:

200 gram chocolate.

3 tbs. dried cranberry, chopped.

4 tbs. pistachio nuts, chopped.

You will also need a silicone mold, with whatever shape you want.

Method:

Heat up the chocolate until it’s melted, you can use a casserole or the microwave for that.

Pour some of the melted chocolate in the molds, top with cranberry and nuts and put it in the freezer for about 20 minutes. Voila now you have delicious Christmas snacks.

Dadelkugler med pistacienødder og hindbærdrys

image1 (2)

 

Indrømmet så er det ikke særligt opfindsom at poste dadelkugler på sin blog eftersom alle andre gør det, men da de er mine yndlings snack når det kommer til julen, så skal de altså med. Jeg har puttet en banan i for at gøre dem endnu mere low calorie, men de smager syndige, og der er bestemt ikke noget “sundt” over dem, selv om de er helt fri for sukker og smør, som man jo ellers finder i de fleste andre julesnacks. Hvad med jer, har i en yndlings julesnack der kommer på bordet hver år?

Ingredienser:

180 gram dadler uden sten

3 spk. mørk kakaopulver

1 mellem banan

60 gram havregryn

30 gram pistacienødder

Fremgangsmåde:

1. Smid det hele i en food processor til du har en konsistens du kan lave kugler af.

2. Form kuglerne, og vend dem i din favoritdrys… her er de vendt i hindbærstøv og pistacienødder.

Recipe in English:

Granted it’s not particularly inventive posting  Christmas date snacks on his blog, because everyone else does it, but since they are my favorite snack when it comes to Christmas, then they must be here too. I have added a banana, in order to make them even more low calorie, but they taste sinful, and there is certainly nothing “healthy” about them, even though they are completely free of sugar and butter, as we often otherwise find in the other Christmas snacks.

Ingredients:

180 grams of pitted dates

3 tbs. dark cocoa powder

1 medium banana

60 grams of oatmeal

30 grams pistachios

Procedure:

1. Throw it all in a food processor, until you have a consistency you can make little balls from.

2. Roll the balls and toss them in your favorite sprinkle … I tossed them in raspberry dust and chopped pistachios.

Nutritional Information:

Calories: 272 per. 100 grams. 7.5 grams of protein, 48 grams carbohydrate, fat 6.5. (I made 20 balls, with 53 calories in each)

Bedehummus

IMG_3659 - KopiJeg har været i gang med at lave en masse spændende retter med beder, det er jo en fantastisk efterårsgrøntsag, og de stribede beder er så smukke at de slet ikke er til at stå for. Da jeg havde en helt masse til overs besluttede jeg mig for at prøve at lave en bedehummus som side order, det smagte helt vildt godt og der var en masse tilbage som endte som mellemmåltid dagen efter sammen med nogle sprøde gulerodsstænger.

Ingredienser:

2 rødbeder eller bolsjebeder (ca. 260 gram)

1 dåse kikærter, drænet for væske

2 tsk. tahin

1 tsk. spidskommen

½ tsk cayennepeber

2 spk. citronsaft

Salt og peber

 

Fremgangsmåde:

1. Skær rødbederne i tern og bag dem i ovnen ved 200 grader under stanniol, i 15-20 minutter til de er så bløde at du nemt kan sætten en gaffel i dem.

2. Blend det hele i en food processor.

3. Server som side order eller med grøntsagsstænger.

Hummus’en indeholder kun 80 kalorier pr. 100 gram, så du kan roligt spise løs. Næringsindhold pr. 100 gram: 4,1 gram protein, 13 gram kulhydrat og 1,5 gram fedt.
