Chocolate tartlets

These yummy chocolate tartlets are just the Tuesday Treat for me. I loooooove chocolate, especially when it's combined with red fruits and blueberries. I made these when I got invited to dinner over at my cousin's place and used some dough that I had left over from another tartlet recipe that I've made (but haven't posted yet).

Tastier, fresher and less salty than the versions you can buy in a supermarket, and you’re totally in control of the ingredients. Don’t like carrots? Leave them out. Love mushrooms?

Banana, chocolate & peanut butter protein snacks

I'm lucky enough to have some really good food at work, and some really good chefs cooking up a storm each day. One of my favourite things they make, is this thing called 'Chunky monkey protein bars', which is made with banana, peanut butter, oats, maple syrup, chocolate chips and coconut oil. Unfortunately for me they sometimes sell out before I can buy them so I decided to just try…
