Baked Berry Oats

Yumm!! This is one of my absolute fav recipes for breakfast. Super healthy, incredibly filling and so delicious that it will be a winner in your household too.

Oats are such a nourishing option when it comes to breakfast. A source of carbs and protein, as well as being low GI (which means no crazy buzz with the crash afterwards). To make oats a little more glamorous I have packed this recipe full of sweet berries, nuts and seeds.

I like to make these on a Sunday so I have breakfast sorted for the next few days. Alternatively you can halve the recipe so you can still mix up your breakfasts with other recipes or if you have a family than this will feed you all without having to make sperate breakies (winning!!)

I like to top mine with coconut yoghurt, extra nut butter and some fresh berries but feel free to mix it up either with greek yoghurt or even ice cream for a dessert option.

Chocolate Mousse Cups

Have you ever thrown a whole lot of ingredients together and ended up creating the most epic raw treat ever? Well that is exactly what happened here.

I love chocolate mousse and since I became intolerant to dairy I have really missed it. So I thought I would test myself and see if I could make a gluten and dairy free version that tasted incredible and was full of amazing health benefits.

These are amazing for a afternoon snack, dessert or for a gathering with friends.

I like to keep mine in the freezer and take out 5 minutes before I want to eat it so it has time to soften slightly to give you that velvety mousse texture however, I am also known to be impatient and eat it straight from the freezer.

Choc Peanut butter Blissballs

One of the best combos in the world, Chocolate and PB. As you all know I am a huge fan of healthy snacks and blissballs is one of the most versatile when it comes to flavour combinations.

Each week I try to make them different and this week I felt like something a little more indulgent but still full of healthy ingredients. The healthy fats from the nuts and coconut means that one of these little flavour bombs will satisfy even the richest craving.

The added benefit of raw cacao powder gives these treats a decadent chocolate hit and because of the processing of the beans it is jam packed with antioxidants and nutrients to help you feeling energised and happy.

Who would have thought a little blissball could be so good for you.

I would love to see you recreations, simply tag blissfulhealth_ on instagram so I can show you some love and see your yummy treats.
