Banana and coconut chia pudding

Banana and coconut chia pudding

This post is barely a recipe. Chia pudding is such an easy thing to make. Grind the chia seeds, add liquid to your liking – wait a little – and you’re done! The possibilities are endless. I love having some chia pudding for breakfast. Or as a snack with some fresh fruit. The seeds are loaded with fibre, protein and minerals… Read more →

coconut lemon cake

Coconut lemon cake (gluten and sugarfree)

I made coconut cake before and I made coconut macaroons before. Both super yummy recipes. But this coconut lemon cake is a whole other level. Super moist, fluffy and a nice zing of fresh lemon and zest. It does require a little more effort than the usual cakes I make. But sieving the flours and whipping up the egg whites… Read more →

Coconut cake with fruit

Tasty coconut cake with fresh fruit

If coconut is your thing, make this cake! This cake has coconut written all over it. It has coconut flour, coconut cream and coconut milk! And to finish things off you could opt for coconut sugar too – but I prefer maple syrup. Together with some fresh summer fruits, which are in season now, this cake could be a great dessert for… Read more →

Chocolate glazed coconut cake

Chocolate glazed coconut cake

If you’re looking for an easy and tasty gluten free cake, look no further. This coconut cake is really easy to make and has only 9 ingredients – that’s including the chocolate glaze. (9 ingredients is not a lot in baking terms.) It’s also nice non chocolate glazed, but I think a little extra chocolate can do no harm. And you… Read more →

Coconut macaroons

Vegan coconut macaroons

Crunchy outside and soft in the middle. Full on coconut flavor – with hints of lime and vanilla. That’s what these lovely macaroons are.  They smell so good fresh from the oven! I had to make a second batch for the photo’s because the first batch was finished before I knew it. They were that good. Oh, and they’re vegan and… Read more →

Lime and coconut cookies

Lime and coconut cookies

I just got back from a trip to Portugal. We cruised around the country for a week – had lots of good food, even tried some of their famous pastries. Call me crazy but I missed baking myself. So back home now – and even though today is a hot day (temperature is 28 degrees celsius) – I still want to… Read more →

coconut vanilla custard

Coconut vanilla custard

I just had to share this recipe as soon as I had some. This coconut custard is light, creamy and delicious. The recipe was originally for a custard pie – but I changed the ingredients and had some custard dessert instead. I will come back with a custard pie recipe soon, but meanwhile I am going to enjoy this dessert. This recipe is enough… Read more →

I can’t decide if powersnack ball is actually a nice way to describe this recipe. I agree it sounds a bit weird. But it is a great powersnack for when you need that extra little bit of energy. And they just happend to be balls because it’s easy to make them that way. They can be a healthy snack. They look like… Read more →
