Lemon Mint Raw Chocolate

I was recently in Finland and as I walked in the local stores in Helsinki I could not help but notice how superfoods are everywhere these days. Magazines lists benefits and feature recipes, health food section boosts beautifully packed powerfoods or superfoods and then there’s the healthy snacks! I even won a healthy raw choc brownie bar by rolling the dice in eco store Ruohonjuuri – […]

Sugar Free Butter Croissants

Making croissants from scratch might sound like a lot of work but actually it isn’t and they contain very basic ingredients. Time and technique is what you need when making these multi layered buttery bites . The layers are formed by a layer of cold butter in between the dough, folded multiple times in the process. The dough needs to stay cold while you work with it and the […]

Sugar Free Mint-Chocolate Mousse

It’s been really hot in here lately, temperature rising close to 40 degrees of celsius in Tel Aviv!  As you may guess going outside in this weather is like standing in the oven and I have for the very reason been cooking and baking less lately, avoiding using the oven and eating more fresh and cold produce. So also this recipe is a no-bake, quick […]

A quick post about an easy dessert that takes less than 30 minutes and is the best enjoyed hot from the oven with cold side such as vanilla ice cream or whipped cream – a Chocolate Soufflé.  Souffles can be prepared ahead of time, refrigerated and baked when you are ready, which is especially great if you are preparing dessert for a bigger crowd. This version is made […]

Sugar Free No Bake Blueberry-Apple Cheesecake

The idea for these mini no-bake cheesecakes simply came from the need of a tasty little treat for our Friday afternoon coffee. It was the 7th day of the ongoing sugar free August, which is by the way going great! Summer is naturally sweet time. Back in Finland I’d be picking blueberries, forest strawberries and raspberries in the nature and going to the outdoor markets to get the world’s […]

Sugar Free Chocolate Crepes with Cream & Raspberries

Back to basics, crepes – the thinner and lighter version of pancakes. I actually make all my crepes batters sugar free but added some chocolate flavour in these by using unsweetened cocoa powder. They taste delicious with whipped cream flavoured with vanilla bean and sweetened with spoonful of granulated stevia, served with raspberries. Now let me tell you about this amazing crepes pan I recently got […]

Bread Cones & Roasted Carrots

Yummy soft bread cones that you can enjoy with any filling you like, but what does making bread cones have to do with roasting carrots? Using carrots as the bread cone mould has the advantage of having two dishes baked at once (brilliant, right?) and regardless of your bread cone filling, roasted carrots make a nice side dish! Alternatively you could use cream horn moulds or make […]

SunGold and Green Kiwis – ah what a bliss. I had written kiwifruits to our grocery list and to my surprise found both yellow and green and it pretty much made my day. 🙂 This dessert is not only healthier because it’s free of refined sugars, but thanks to the kiwifruit it’s packed with nutrients such as Vitamin C, E and dietary fiber. I found a […]

Soft shortcrust base with berrylicious & milky almond filling, sweetened with granulated stevia. I used a mix of sweet and sour berries: frozen blueberries, currants, boysenberries, raspberries and strawberries. Fresh berries would do wonderful too and I’m planning to give it a try with cloudberries as soon as I find some. With this Sugar Free Sunday piece of tart I wish all moms out there a very […]
