MERRY CHRISTMAS! (with a recipe for a healthier treat for the holidays)

23 Dec

I have now been a blogger for 1 year – and what a great year it has been! I have now decided to quit my good job in one of Denmark’s biggest banks and start a business helping people to a more healthy life with more energy and happiness. I will help people lose weight and have less sick days. I’m so excited!

For my last blog post of the year I’m giving you a recipe for a treat, that is a bit more healthy then the stuff most people eat around christmas. It’s a raw coco-chocolate-orange bar.

The prep time is about 10 minutes – and after that is has to cool in the fridge for an hour (or freezer for 15 mins)

You will need:

12 fresh dates, pitted

100 grams of coconut flour

50 grams good quality pure cocoa powder – e.g Valrhona

50 grams of hazelnuts, grind in coffee grinder

2 tablespoons of coconut oil

Orange zest of 1 orange (organic)

4-5 drops of orange oil (or blood orange oil)

Process everything in a food processor or blender into a smooth firm paste – I use a hand blender with a chopper. If it is too dry you can add a bit of juice from the orange – no more than a couple of tablespoons.

Take to pieces of paper baking sheets and place the mixture between the paper. Roll it with a rolling pin until it’s about ½cm thick. Sprinkle some coconut flour over the mix and roll a few times more to make it stick.

Use a pizza cutter to cut it into small pieces. Cool in the fridge for about an hour or in the freezer if your guest are arriving soon (Or you can’t wait) 🙂
