Chocolate orange oats

One of my favourite oat combinations. Ive had so many of you message me asking how i make my porridge on a morning how i get it so creamy looking, theres one secret to this- oat flour! Ive found by grinding my oats up into a flour or by simply going to the kids section in the supermarket and getting a "smooth" oats is the secret to this. I have been adding some quick cook oats to this now and again as i can not digest oats very well i have found this to be the best way to introduce them. Try 1/4 cup mixed with 3/4 oat flour. 

What you will need; 
1 cup of oats I used (ready brek in the uk) 
1/2 cup oat milk 
1/2 cup water
2 tsp heaped cacao 
1tbs maple syrup
2 tsp sweetfreedom orange spice (or add more cacao)
1 Jaffa orange 
1square of dark chocolate 
1/2 rip banana 

Make oats with cacao, maple and sweetfreedom. Place in a pan and heat for a few minutes on medium heat then turn it down for a few more, keep stirring. One of the other secrets is to add a little more milk in as it starts to cool, constantly stirring. Get it to the right consistency that you like and turn the heat off.  Half the orange and squeeze and zest into cooked porridge. Cut the other into segments removing the skin to place on top along with half a banana and chocolate chunks. Finish off with remaining zest and chocolate shavings.

7 Ingredient Peanut butter Chocolate Protein Cookies

Ok so ive made these a few times now and i have to say these are so delicious and really easy to make. They make a nice little snack after a workout, If you don't like the added protein powder in these you could easy replace it with some oat flour, rice flour or buckwheat flour. Really depends what you prefer.

 Ive recently got back into working out again after a long time away from the gym and so far its going well and I'm getting stronger for my surfing (which was the idea) so there might be a few protein recipes in the making as i like to have something easy to pick up. Or who needs a workout as an excuse? they are just that good. Right lets get into what your going to need. Makes around 12 small cookies, serving size is up to yourself. Oh and did i mention they are only 7 ingredients? oh yeah... 

What you will need; 
1tbs coconut oil 
1/4 cup peanut butter
1/4 cup maple 
1tbs flax (mixed with 3tbs water left for 10 mins)
1 scoop of plant based protein 
1/2 cup oat flour
1/2 tsp baking soda 
large handful of chopped chocolate (30g) 

Mix coconut oil and peanut butter and maple together until it combines. Add in the flax egg and mix again. Then add in all of your dry ingredients and mix in your chopped chocolate. Roll into 12 equal ball and flatten with your fingers, these cookies won't spread much but i quite like them quite chunky. Bake at 170fan for 10-15 minutes until golden keep checking on them so they don't burn. Leave to cool for 10 minutes before digging in. Enjoy with a glass of oat milk (try it)

I hope you enjoyed this recipe. If you do decide to make these be sure to tag me over on social media, i love looking at your recreations. Happy baking, until next time, Helen xx

Sticky Teriyaki Tofu

Evening everyone, i thought i would pop this recipe over on here as i know your all going to want the exact measurements to what i used for the sauce for these bowls. The way i cook this tofu (video) is over on my instagram stories which I'm going to save to my profile. Hope everyone is having a great week so far, lets get onto what your going to need for these sticky bowls. This sauce will cover one packet of firm tofu baked or fried in 1/2tsp of sesame oil. 

What you need;
3 dessert spoon mirin 
2 dessert spoon of dark soy 
1 dessert spoon of maple (or agave syrup)
1 dessert spoon of apple cider vinegar 
1/2tsp onion powder 
1/4 tsp garlic powder and ground ginger 
1/4 cup water 
1tsp heaped cornflour and a little water mixed until cornflour dissolves 

Place all sauce ingredients and mix together until its smooth. When tofu is ready take out of oven or air fryer. Place sauce in a pan and stir for a few minutes over low/medium heat until it starts to thicken. Then add in the already cooked tofu and coat it in the sauce and keep stirring until it goes nice and sticky. Serve with rice and veggies of choice.
