After a couple of days of being sick I’m finally starting to feel better today and actually do things around the house. Yay! I was sick of getting stuck inside and not being able to move away from the couch. I’m still treating my body kindly today though. Cleaning up the wardrobe, donating my old clothes to Salvos, putting ads on Gumtree to sell my stuff (well..Daniel is helping me with most of this), cooking Daniel’s lunch for tomorrow, a bit of baking, etc. Today is going so fast! When we moved to this house a couple of years ago, I thought I threw away a lot of things I didn’t need. Then somehow spare rooms and shed are full of junk again. I’m so looking forward to moving to a new house and starting all over again in Melbourne. Fresh start, how exciting!
Using almond meal is one of my current obsessions in baking alongside coconut flour. I put in everywhere, muffins, cookies and powder balls. Yes, I’ll admit I’ve been eating way too much of these recently. I like baking a simple, whole grain baked good like this with festive spices, the tangy pop of goji berries and bitter sweet cacao nibs. I enjoyed a bite with a cup of chai and Daniel with a sweet citron tea. I like this relaxing afternoon with my hubby 🙂Ingredients (8 little cookies)
50g almond meal
50g buckwheat flour
1 tsp of coconut oil
1 tsp of cinnamon powder
1 tsp of stevia powder (or any kind of sweetener)
1 tsp of goji berries
1 tsp of cacao nibs
1 tbsp of coconut water
a touch of Himalayan salt
Mix all ingredients together and make 8 little balls. Bake in the preheated oven (180) for 20 minutes or until cooked. Cool on a wire rack before storing in an airtight container for a couple of weeks.
