Chocolate Orange Chia Pudding

I had to put this up on my blog as i had a few messages about it when i put it up as a bowl. I wanted it to be up on here so its easy access when you want to make it. You can easily layer this into a jar or have it on its own as a bowl. Depends how chocolatey you want things to get. Right enough talk lets get on to what your going to need. 

1/3 cup chia seeds
1 and 1/4 cup of milk 
1tbs cacao powder 
2tsp rice malt syrup 
juice of 1/2 a small orange 

Make chia pudding with milk over night in fridge. In the morning mix in the cacao, rice milk and orange juice. Decorate with banana, more orange, granola and hemp seeds. Enjoy! 

I hope you enjoyed this recipe, if you do decide to make this be sure to tag me over on social media. I love looking at your recreations. Until next time, Helen xx

Double Chocolate Banana Muffins

Ok so I've teased you guys enough with this recipe, its finally here! but was it worth waiting for? Of course it was, its double chocolate muffins for crying out loud. Its got the right balance of sweetness and fluffiness with bits of melting chocolate. I mean whats not to love? I also wanted to create this so you can shove it in a loaf tin and bake a big old chocolate loaf/cake. So the temperatures change and times do as well but i will include both below. Lets get into what your going to need. Makes 1 big loaf or 9-10 giant muffins. 

3 small really ripe bananas
1/4 cup vegan butter (or coconut oil)
1/2 cup milk mixed with 1tsp apple vinegar 
1/4 cup coconut sugar 
2tbs flaxseed mixed with 6tbs water (for 10mins) (use 2 eggs if veggie)
1 cup of GF flour self raising  and 1tsp baking soda 
1/3 cup cacao powder 
1/3 dark chocolate 

If your making muffins or the loaf preheat the oven to 170fan. Next up mash your bananas, butter and sugar together. Don't worry if it looks all separate and weird it'll come together, add in the flax eggs and make sure theres no big lumps in the mixture. Add in the milk and mix again. Now throw in your dry mixture and mix together, if you need a little more milk at this stage add no more than 1/4cup should be the constancy of a thick cake batter. Divide between the muffin tins i like to fill about 3/4 way up the sprinkle a little chocolate in each one so everyone gets equal melting chocolate. Cover with rest of batter and place in the oven. If your making the loaf turn it down to 160 and bake for 45 minutes or until a tooth pick comes out fairly clean. For the muffins keep it at 170 and bake for 20-25 minutes until tooth pick comes out clean. Leaves to cool for 15 minutes in the tins then transfer to a rack before slicing/ devouring. Enjoy! 

I hope you enjoyed this recipe, if you do make this loaf/ muffins feel free to tag me over on social media. I love looking at your recreations. Speak soon, Helen xx
