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). It's actually quite easy to make, the only tricky thing is trying to…

So, when I decided to cut back on some things (salt and sugar mainly) to improve my health and have a more balanced lifestyle, I found that cutting back on…

Banana, chocolate & peanut butter protein snacks

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…

Dairy-free and gluten-free vanilla rice pudding

I'm baaaaack! I've been away for nearly 4 weeks as I travelled to New Zealand to attend my friends' wedding, and I stopped for a quick family visit in Belgium on my (long.. oh so long) way back. As I'm slowly but surely getting back into my normal rhythm (and time zone) I'm finally beginning to feel like myself again. Now that my energy levels are back up again I'm…
