I love it when I have cooking weeks where everything works! I had a few disasters not that long ago where the result was so bad that even I couldn’t eat it – very rare as I hate to waste food. But this week was truly stellar, so here is one of the recipes today and the rest will follow in the weeks to come.
I love this one because it is super easy, as is my preference but again it was just a tweak on my Chocolate Tweets mix that made it completely different, rich, decadent and just all over Oh My Goodness!
Do you remember the White Chocolate Spiders recipe from years ago that was basically melt white chocolate, add peanut butter, tip in crunchy noodles and that was it? I used to love them and then feel sick afterwards from all the crappy stuff in it.
This recipe is a particular favourite of mine, as I created it years ago when I was just starting out on my health and weight loss crusade. I was just starting to cook a few things again after hating cooking for so long. For me cooking meant putting on weight, so it was a hate/hate relationship for many years.
Just another quick little recipe that I have featured on Instagram before but haven’t managed to post here.
In the past, if there was ever a choice of cake going around, my preference was always cheesecake. Not sure why, but it just hit the spot. The more I learn about good fats, blood sugar spikes with too much sugar and carbs and the rest of the havoc caused by wheat products (currently reading Wheat Belly by William Davis MD and having mind blown,) I am coming to understand more why my body would choose this high fat treat option. It knows best!
I’ve noticed something. If I eat three small pieces of this recipe or any of the good fat and protein combos like my white chocolate fudge or peanut butter balls, for breakfast, I am totally not hungry again until well after 12 noon.
That’s super awesome because in the past when I had fruit or oats for example, I would be hungry again an hour later. Such a pain when you have things to do.
I was remembering the chewy Sesame Bar and wondered if I could make the same thing with less sweetener and maybe raw too, so I gave it whirl and while it’s not the same, it’s still yum and deserves a place in the Slim Birdy line up.
Just for fun, I found the ingredients of the standard commercial Sesame Bar and get a load of this…
