Warrior Brownies (gluten free, grain free, refined sugar free) / Warrior Brownies (bez glutena, bez žitarica, bez rafiniranog šećera)

I suggest that you drop everything you are doing right now and go make these brownies. They are scrumptious, rich and actually on a healthy side. If you opt for a good quality chocolate, they could be refined sugar free too. If you’re more lenient with your paleo regime, these could also work for you.

IMGP8258

IMGP8259

METHOD:

Preheat the oven to 180°C. Lightly oil a square baking pan and line it with parchment paper. In a bowl whisk together the eggs, vanilla and date syrup. Add in 2/3 of melted chocolate and all but 2-3 tablespoons of heavy cream. Mix well until smooth. In a separate bowl mix together the reserved melted chocolate with reserved cream and set this aside. You’ll use up this mixture later on as a ganache.

In a separate bowl, mix together almond flour, ground walnuts, ground flax seeds, cacao powder, baking powder and salt. Pour the egg mixture over dry ingredients and stir until well combined. Fold in raisins and transfer the batter into a prepared pan.

Bake for 20-25 minutes, until brownies are set. Pour the reserved ganache over the warm brownies, then sprinkle with salt and crushed almonds. Chill the brownies completely before slicing and serving.

Predlažem vam da ostavite apsolutno sve što sada radite i bacite se na izradu ovih brownija. Oni su prefini, bogati i zapravo čak i prilično zdravi. Ako upotrijebite kvalitetniju čokoladu, mogu biti i bez rafiniranog šećera. Također, ako niste u jako strogom paleo režimu, ovaj bi ste desert isto mogli uzeti u obzir.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 24 browni kocaka / 2,66kn po browniju / 63,87kn za sve)

2 jaja (3,00 kn)

1 žličica ekstrakta od vanilije (0,20 kn)

½ šalice sirupa od datulja (1,50 kn)

1 i ½ šalica vrhnja za šlag, podijeljena (7,50 kn)

200 g tamne čokolade, rastopljene i podijeljene (20,00 kn)

1 i ½ šalica brašna od badema (15,00 kn)

1 i ½ šalica mljevenih oraha (9,00 kn)

2 žlice mljevenih sjemenki lana (1,00 kn)

2 žlice sirovog kakao praha (2,00 kn)

1 žličica praška za pecivo (0,10 kn)

Dobar prstohvat soli (0,01 kn)

½ šalice grožđica (1,50 kn)

Prema želji za posipanje:

3 žlice blanširanih i drobljenih badema (3,00 kn)

Prstohvat soli (0,01 kn)

Dodatno:

Ulje za namastiti kalup (0,05 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Zagrijte pećnicu na 180°C. Lagano namastite protvan te ga obložite papirom za pečenje. U zdjelici razmutite jaja, vaniliju i sirup od datulja. Dodajte u to 2/3 rastopljene čokolade i sve osim 2-3 žlice vrhnja. Dobro sve promiješajte dok ne dobijete glatku smjesu. U posebnoj zdjelici pomiješajte ostatak čokolade i vrhnja, pa to ostavite sa strane jer će vam to kasnije biti glazura.

U posebnoj zdjeli pomiješajte brašno od badema, mljevene orahe, lan, kakao, prašak za pecivo i sol. Smjesu s jajima prelijte preko suhih sastojaka i dobro promiješajte da se sve sjedini. Nježno umiješajte grožđice i smjesu preselite u pripremljeni protvan.

Pecite 20-25 minuta dok se browniji ne stisnu. Zalijte tople brownije ostatkom smjese čokolade i vrhnja i posipajte sa drobljenim bademima i soli. Skroz ohladite brownije prije rezanja i posluživanja.

Rice Paper Salad Wraps (vegan) / Salatne rolice (veganske)

While browsing the store a few days back I surprisingly stumbled onto Vietnamese rice paper wraps. I had no exact ideas what to do with them at the time, but naturally, I couldn’t simply leave the store without buying them. The result of my first experiment are super easy salad wraps. If you have all the veggies already chopped up in advance these come together really quickly. The wraps are also a great way to have a salad on the go. Paired with a good amount of this homemade hummus, they made a filling and healthy lunch.

imgp8155

imgp8151

imgp8154

INGREDIENTS:

(Yields 6 wraps / 0.44 EUR per wrap / 2.63 EUR for all)

For the wraps:

6 sheets of round rice paper (0.60 EUR)

1 large carrot (0.10 EUR)

½ of medium sized cucumber (0.33 EUR)

1 bell pepper (0.40 EUR)

Handful of fresh baby spinach (0.67 EUR)

Handful of shredded purple cabbage (0.20 EUR)

For serving:

1 cup of homemade hummus (0.33 EUR)

imgp8152

METHOD:

Wash, clean and thinly slice all the veggies. I find that the easiest way is to use a mandolin. Fill a large bowl with water and keep handy. Dip each sheet of rice paper into water for about 30 seconds to soften, then transfer it to a clean plate. Fill with prepared veggies (be careful not to overfill it) and roll up tightly. Repeat until all of the ingredients are used up.

At this point you can tightly wrap each roll into cling foil and keep refrigerated for 1-2 days as a portable snack or lunch. Otherwise, serve immediately with hummus, peanut sauce or similar dipping paraphernalia of your choice.

Dok sam neki dan bauljala po dućanu naletjela sam na tanke vijetnamske tortilje od rižinog brašna. U tom trenutku nisam imala jasnu ideju što bi se sve sa tim sastojkom dalo učiniti, ali naravno, nisam ih mogla ne kupiti. Rezultat prvog eksperimenta su ove jednostavne salatne rolice. Ako doma već imate nasjeckanog povrća, sve ćete pripremiti za čas, a meni se ovo jelo jako dopalo jer je super opcija i ako hoćete prijenosnu šarenu salatu. Uz domaći humus za umakanje, imala sam istovremeno zasitan i jako zdravi ručak.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 6 rolica / 3,29 kn po rolici / 19,75 za sve)

Za rolice:

6 tankih tortilja od rižinog brašna (4,50 kn)

1 velika mrkva (0,75 kn)

½ srednje velikog krastavca (2,50 kn)

1 paprika babura (3,00 kn)

Pregršt svježeg špinata (5,00 kn)

Pregršt ribanog crvenog kupusa (1,50 kn)

Za posluživanje:

1 šalica domaćeg humusa (2,50 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Operite, očistite i jako tanko narežite svo povrće. Meni je najlakše za to upotrijebiti ribež (mandolinu). Veću posudu napunite toplom vodom i držite pri ruci. Potopite rižinu tortilju u vodu na tridesetak sekundi da omekša. Preselite na čisti tanjur i punite sa povrćem, s time da pazite da ne pretjerate sa količinom povrća. Čvrsto sve zamotajte u rolicu, pa ponavljajte postupak dok ne iskoristite sve sastojke.

Sada možete svaku rolicu zasebno umotati u prijanjajuću foliju i držati u hladnjaku 1-2 dana, tako da kasnije imate prijenosni snack ili ručak. U protivnom, rolice poslužite odmah sa humusom, umakom od kikirikija ili sličnom umakalicom po vašem izboru.

Black Wings in Miso with Veggie Stir-Fry / Crna pileća krilca u miso marinadi sa povrćem iz woka

These wings are really easy to make and are a perfect solution for a busy weekday nights. We had a pair of enormous chicken wings at home so one of those was enough per serving, as we had them with plenty of veggies on the side. Feel free to adjust the measures to your own liking, though.

imgp8062

INGREDIENTS:

(Yields 2 servings / 1.69 EUR per serving / 3.38 EUR for all)

For the chicken:

2 large chicken wings (1.33 EUR)

1 tbsp miso paste (0.27 EUR)

Good pinch of salt (0.01 EUR)

Good pinch of dried red pepper flakes (0.02 EUR)

1 tbsp sunflower seed oil (0.01 EUR)

1-2 tsp water (–)

For the veggies:

2 tbsp sunflower seed oil (0.03 EUR)

½ of medium sized cauliflower head (0.66 EUR)

1 carrot (0.10 EUR)

4 garlic cloves (0.13 EUR)

1 onion (0.10 EUR)

½ of medium sized kale head (0.33 EUR)

2 tbsp soy sauce (0.27 EUR)

1 tsp sugar (0.01 EUR)

1 tsp toasted sesame oil (0.07 EUR)

1 tsp corn starch (0.01 EUR)

4 tbsp warm water (–)

1 tbsp sesame seeds (0.03 EUR)

imgp8064

METHOD:

The evening before wash and pat dry the chicken wings. Whisk together miso paste, salt, red pepper flakes, oil and water, then thoroughly rub the marinade into the wings. Allow the wings to sit in your fridge until the next day, so that the flavors can soak into the meat.

The next day preheat the oven to 200°C. Line a baking tray with parchment paper, drain the wings off excess marinade and spread on prepared baking tray. Bake for 30-40 minutes, until charred and crispy to your liking (newsflash – we like our meat on the carbonized side! :D).

While the wings are roasting, prepare the veggies. Wash, peel and chop everything up. Place a deep skillet or a wok on high heat to properly warm up. Add in a bit of oil and cauliflower chunks, then cook for about five minutes, until cauliflower is crispy on all sides. Add in carrot, garlic and onion, then stir-fry those for a few minutes before adding in chopped kale. Give a good stir and cover your pan with a lid and leave it alone for a few minutes so the kale wilts down.

In a small bowl, whisk together soy sauce, sugar, sesame oil, corn starch and water. Pour the sauce over veggies and give a good stir. Cook briefly so the sauce thickens and remove from heat. Sprinkle the veggies with sesame seeds and serve along the roasted wings.

Ova krilca su jako jednostavna za prirediti i savršeno su rješenje kada preko tjedna želite nešto na brzinu smutiti nakon posla. Mi smo doma imali par enormnih pilećih krilca, pa nam je po jedno krilce bilo dovoljno za porciju, posebno zato što smo kao prilog imali gomilu povrća. Naravno, vi si niže količine svakako prilagodite vlastitom ukusu.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 2 porcije / 12,64 kn po porciji / 25,28 kn za sve)

Za meso:

2 velika pileća krilca (10,00 kn)

1 žlica miso paste (2,00 kn)

Dobar prstohvat soli (0,01 kn)

Dobar prstohvat sušenog chilija u pahuljicama (0,15 kn)

1 žlica suncokretovog ulja (0,10 kn)

1-2 žličice vode (–)

Za povrće:

2 žlice suncokretovog ulja (0,20 kn)

½ srednje glavica cvjetače (5,00 kn)

1 mrkva (0,75 kn)

4 češnja češnjaka (1,00 kn)

1 luk (0,75 kn)

½ srednje glavica kelja (2,50 kn)

2 žlice soja sosa (2,00 kn)

1 žličica šećera (0,02 kn)

1 žličica tostiranog sezamovog ulja (0,50 kn)

1 žličica kukuruznog škroba (0,05 kn)

4 žlice tople vode (–)

1 žlica sezama (0,25 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Večer prije operite i kuhinjskim ručnikom dobro posušite krilca. Razmutite u glatku pastu miso pastu, sol, čili, ulje i vodu, pa tu marinadu dobro utrljajte u meso. Ostavite krilca da odstoje preko noći u hladnjaku kako bi upila sve arome iz marinade.

Sljedeći dan zagrijte pećnicu na 200°C. Protvan obložite papirom za pečenje, krilca ocijedite od suvišne marinade, te ih raširite po protvanu. Pecite 30-40 minuta, dok krilca ne budu zapečena i hrskava prema vašem ukusu (kao što i sami vidite, nama je meso super ako je skoro pa karbonizirano! :D).

Dok se krilca peku, priredite povrće. Operite, ogulite i sve nasjeckajte. Duboku tavu ili wok stavite na jaku vatru da se dobro zagrije. Dodajte malo ulja i komade cvjetače, pa pržite oko pet minuta dok se cvjetača ne zahrska sa svih strana. Dodajte mrkvu, češnjak i luk, pa i njih pržite nekoliko minuta prije nego dodate kelj. Sve dobro promiješajte i poklopite wok, te ostavite tako nekoliko minuta da kelj povene.

U maloj zdjelici pomiješajte soja sos, šećer, sezamovo ulje, kukuruzni škrob i vodu. Umak prelijte preko povrća i promiješajte. Kratko prokuhajte, samo koliko treba da se umak zgusne i maknite s vatre. Povrće posipajte sezamom i poslužite sa pečenim krilcima.

Creamy Lentil and Cauliflower Curry (vegan) / Kremasti curry od leće i cvjetače (veganski)

This dish is absolutely amazing so I am definitely throwing it into our weekday meal rotation. I decided to serve the curry over rice to get even more meals out of it and sorted pretty much a whole week’s worth of food with one cooking. Also, I threw in the whole cauliflower stalk and leaves together with everything else, so nothing went to waste here.

imgp8106

imgp8099

INGREDIENTS:

(Yields 8 servings / 0.79 EUR per serving / 6.37 EUR for all)

2 tbsp sunflower seed oil (0.03 EUR)

2 onions (0.20 EUR)

4 garlic cloves (0.13 EUR)

1 chili pepper (0.13 EUR)

4 tomatoes (1.07 EUR)

1 head of cauliflower (1.33 EUR)

2 tbsp curry powder (0.27 EUR)

1 tsp salt (0.01 EUR)

2 tbsp dried parsley (0.13 EUR)

2 cups green lentils (0.80 EUR)

1 can of full-fat coconut cream (2.00 EUR)

4 cups veggie broth (0.27 EUR)

imgp8102

imgp8100

METHOD:

Peel, wash and chop up all the vegetables. Don’t throw away any leaves or stalk of your cauliflower, just chop those up finely as well. Rinse lentils under running water in a colander. In a large pot, saute the onion on oil on high heat for a few minutes until slightly translucent. Throw in garlic and chili pepper, stir and cook for just a minute until fragrant, before adding in the tomatoes, the cauliflower stalk and any thick stems. Reserve the green part of leaves and cauliflower florets to add in later. Stir and cook for a few minutes. Add in curry powder, salt, parsley, lentils, coconut cream and veggie broth, then bring to a rolling boil.

Once your curry is boiling, reduce heat and simmer with a lid on for about 30 minutes. Stir occasionally and add a splash of water if needed. After 30 minutes stir in cauliflower florets and green parts of leaves, then cook for additional 10-15 minutes, until cauliflower is done to your liking. Serve over a bed of cooked rice.

Ovo jelo je jako ukusno, pa ću ga radi toga definitivno ubaciti u naš redovan tjedni meni. Pošto sam curry odlučila poslužiti uz kuhanu rižu, dobili smo još više porcija i sa jednim kuhanjem sam riješila prehrambene potrebe za skoro cijeli tjedan (hura!!!). Također, iskoristila sam ne samo cvjetiće karfijola, već i cijelu stabljiku i listove, pa se ništa nije bacilo.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 8 porcija / 6,09 kn po porciji / 48,71 kn za sve)

2 žlice suncokretovog ulja (0.20 EUR)

2 luka (1,50 kn)

4 češnja češnjaka (1,00 kn)

1 chili papričica (1,00 kn)

4 rajčice (8,00 kn)

1 glavica cvjetače (10,00 kn)

2 žlice curry praha (2,00 kn)

1 žličica soli (0,01 kn)

2 žlice sušenog peršina (1,00 kn)

2 šalice zelene leće (6,00 kn)

1 konzerva punomasnog kokosovog mlijeka (15,00 kn)

4 šalice povrtnog temeljca (2,00 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Ogulite, operite i nasjeckajte svo povrće. Listove i stabljiku cvjetače nemojte baciti, već i njih fino nasjeckajte. Isperite leću u cjediljci pod tekućom vodom. U velikom loncu na ulju dinstajte par minuta luk na jakoj vatri, sve dok ne postane staklast. Ubacite češnjak i čili papričicu, promiješajte, te kuhajte samo minutu da sve zamiriši. Dodajte rajčice i tvrde stabljike cvjetače, s time da zelene dijelove i same cvjetiće sačuvate za kraj. Promiješajte i kuhajte nekoliko minuta. Ubacite curry, sol, peršin, leću, kokosovo mlijeko i temeljac, te pustite da zavrije.

Kada sve zavrije, smanjite vatru i kuhajte sa odškrinutim poklopcem tridesetak minuta, uz povremeno miješanje. Po potrebi dodajte malo vode, a nakon 30 minuta ubacite još i cvjetiće karfijola i zeleno lišće. Kuhajte još 10-15 minuta, dok cvjetača ne bude skuhana prema vašem ukusu. Poslužite preko kuhane riže.

Christmas Vegan Nutella Cookies (gluten free, paleo) / Božićni veganski Nutella keksi (bez glutena, paleo)

These cookies are super scrumptious and sweet and actually have zero Nutella in them. The secret of the famous spread’s magical flavor lies, in fact, within the toasted hazelnuts and cacao combo.

You can easily toast your own hazelnuts by throwing them into the oven at 175°C for about 15-20 minutes. Once they are fragrant and their skins are cracked, take them out and leave to cool completely. To peal the skins the easy way, just wrapped cooled hazelnuts into a kitchen towel and give them a good rub. Most skins will just slide off and you’ll have an easy time peeling off the rest with your hands.

IMGP8029

IMGP8016

INGREDIENTS:

(Yields about 50 cookies / 3.27 EUR)

For the cookie batter:

1 and ½ cup toasted hazelnuts (1.33 EUR)

1 cup pitted dates (0.67 EUR)

2 tbsp coconut oil, melted (0.27 EUR)

1 tsp pure vanilla extract (0.03 EUR)

2 tbsp raw cacao powder (0.27 EUR)

Pinch of salt (0.01 EUR)

1-2 tbsp plant based milk (0.01 EUR)

For the topping:

2 rows dark cooking chocolate (0.53 EUR)

½ tsp coconut oil (0.02 EUR)

2-3 tbsp crushed toasted hazelnuts (0.13 EUR)

IMGP8032

METHOD:

Pulse the toasted hazelnuts in a food processor into a fine powder. Remove and set aside, then add pitted dates to a food processor and pulse until you have a thick paste. Return in the hazelnuts, then add in coconut oil, vanilla, cacao powder and salt. Pulse until a thick dough comes together. Add in the milk bit by bit as needed. Remove the dough from food processor, wrap in cling foil and refrigerate for at least an hour, or up to 3-4 days in advance.

When ready to bake, remove the dough from fridge and allow it to sit at room temperature for 10-15 minutes, so it’s easier to roll out. Preheat the oven to 175°C and line a baking tray with parchment paper. Roll the dough out between two sheets of parchment paper and cut into desired shapes. Place the cookies on a prepared baking tray and bake for 8-10 minutes.

The cookies will still be soft when they come right out of the oven, but don’t worry, they’ll firm up as they cool. Allow the cookies to cool for about 5 minutes on their baking tray, then gently move them to a wire rack to cool completely.

Once the cookies are completely cool, melt the chocolate with coconut oil and cover each cookie with the mixture. Sprinkle each cookie with a bit of crushed hazelnuts before the chocolate firms up. Place the cookies in the fridge for 15-20 minutes so the chocolate firms up completely, then store in an airtight container in a cool dark place. The cookies should hold for at least a week or two.

Ovi keksići su jako bogati i slasni, a zapravo u njima uopće niti nema Nutelle. Tajna okusa, koji jako podsjeća na slavni namaz, je u kombinaciji tostiranih lješnjaka i kakao praha.

Lješnjake lako možete sami tostirati tako da ih ubacite u pećnicu na 175°C na jedno 15-20 minuta. Izvadite lješnjake iz pećnice kada zamiriše i tanka ljuskica im popuca, te ih ostavite da se skroz ohlade. Ljusku ćete onda lako skinuti sa lješnjaka tako da ih umotate u kuhinjsku krpu i dobro protrljate. Većina ljuski će sama otpasti, a rukama ćete lako oguliti ostatak.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 50-tak keksića / 24,41 kn)

Za tijesto:

1 i ½ šalica tostiranih lješnjaka (10,00 kn)

1 šalica odkoštenih datulja (5,00 kn)

2 žlice kokosovog ulja, rastopljenog (2,00 kn)

1 žličica ekstrakta od vanilije (0,20 kn)

2 žlice sirovog kakao praha (2,00 kn)

Prstohvat soli (0,01 kn)

1-2 žlice veganskog mlijeka (0,05 kn)

Za preljev:

2 reda tamne čokolade (4,00 kn)

½ žličice kokosovog ulja (0,15 kn)

2-3 žlice tostiranih i sjeckanih lješnjaka (1,00 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Tostirane lješnjake ubacite u multipraktik i pulsirajte dok ne dobijete fini prah. Izvadite iz multipraktika i stavite na stranu, pa u multipraktiku onda sameljite datulje u gustu pastu. Vratite k datuljama i lješnjake, pa dodajte još i kokosovo ulje, vaniliju, kakao i sol. Pulsirajte sve dok se ne formira gusto tijesto, a po potrebi dodajte u tijesto malo po malo mlijeka. Maknite tijesto iz multipraktika, zamotajte u prijanjajuću foliju i ostavite u hladnjaku da miruje barem sat vremena, ili do 3-4 dana.

Kada ste spremni za pečenje, tijesto 10-15 minuta ranije izvadite iz hladnjaka da malo otpusti kako bi ste ga lakše razvaljali. Zagrijte pećnicu na 175°C i obložite protvan papirom za pečenje. Tijesto tanko razvaljajte između dva sloja papira za pečenje i režite u željene oblike. Keksiće raširite po pripremljenom protvanu i pecite 8-10 minuta.

Keksi će još biti mekani kada ih izvadite iz pećnice, ali ne brinite, budu očvrsnuli kako se hlade. Ostavite kekse da se jedno pet minuta hlade na protvanu, a onda ih pažljivo preselite na rešetku i tako ohladite do kraja.

Kada su keksići ohlađeni, rastopite čokoladu sa kokosovim uljem i time premažite kekse. Posipajte sjeckanim lješnjacima prije nego se čokolada stvrdne. Kekse na 15-20 minuta stavite u hladnjak kako bi se čokolada do kraja stisnula, a kasnije čuvajte u hermetički zatvorenoj posudi na suhom i hladnom mjestu. Keksići bi trebali držati barem tjedan do dva.

Festive Coconut Bliss Balls (raw, paleo) / Energetske kuglice sa kokosom u blagdanskim aromama (sirove, paleo)

With Christmas time and holidays slowly approaching, I’ve been thinking about festive seasonal recipes so I get my things organized and ready ahead of time. This desert / healthy snack is super easy and quick to make, but the combination of cloves and cinnamon gives the Christmas-y vibe, so I’m definitely keeping this in my arsenal.

IMGP7758

INGREDIENTS:

(Yields 12-15 bliss balls / 1.10 EUR)

1 cup pitted dates (0.67 EUR)

1 cup desiccated coconut (0.33 EUR)

½ cup water (–)

1 tsp ground cinnamon (0.07 EUR)

½ tsp ground cloves (0.03 EUR)

IMGP7760

METHOD:

Add all of the ingredients to a food processor and pulse until a crumbly dough forms. If the dough feels too wet and too sticky, add a bit more coconut. Using your hands shape the dough into balls. Store the bliss balls in your fridge in an airtight container for up to a week. Hide from all family members who lack self-control, as these are super tasty and addictive.

Pošto se božićno i blagdansko vrijeme polako približavaju, razmišljam o prigodnim receptima kako bih unaprijed imala sve pripremljeno i posloženo. Ovaj desert / zdravi snack je jako jednostavan i brz, ali kombinacija cimeta i klinčića baš daje onu pravu božićnu vibru. Stoga ovo definitivno ostaje u mojem arsenalu.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 12-15 kuglica / 8,25 kn)

1 šalica odkoštenih datulja (5,00 kn)

1 šalica kokosovog brašna (2,50 kn)

½ šalice vode (–)

1 žličica cimeta u prahu (0,50 kn)

½ žličice klinčića u prahu (0,25 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Ubacite sve sastojke u multipraktik i pulsirajte dok ne dobijete grudičasto tijesto. Ako vam se čini da je tijesto previše mokro i ljepljivo, ubacite još malo kokosa. Rukama tijesto formirajte u kuglice. Kuglice čuvajte u hladnjaku u hermetički zatvorenoj posudi, gdje će držati do tjedan dana. Obavezno sakrijte od svih članova domaćinstva kojima fali samokontrole, pošto ove kuglice izazivaju ovisnost.

METHOD:

Soak the dates in water for about an hour. Transfer the dates into a food processor with ½ a cup of soaking liquid and vanilla. Pulse until you have a smooth and uniform paste. Add in peanut butter, then pulse more until fully combined. If needed, add in a splash more of reserved soaking liquid.

Line a small tray or a bowl with cling foil and carefully transfer in there the prepared dough. Even out with a spatula and freeze for an hour. Once the dough is frozen, pull out the cling foil to remove the frozen dough from your tray. Cut into squares and serve immediately. These become gooey quite quickly if left at room temperature, so store in the freezer everything you’re not planning to eat up right away.

Ove kocke u sebi sadržavaju savršenu kombinaciju, slatkog, kremastog i punog okusa. Također, pripremiti ćete ih za čas, tako da ih jednostavno morate napraviti. Bilo bi dobro da vam je u blizini i par prijatelja koji će vam pomoći potamaniti ove poslastice, kako vam se ne bi desilo da baš sve počistite sami. 😀

SASTOJCI:

(Za 3-4 porcije / 3,73 kn po porciji / 11,20 kn za sve)

1 šalica odkoštenih datulja (5,00 kn)

½ šalice vode (–)

1 žličica ekstrakta od vanilije (0,20 kn)

½ šalice kikiriki maslaca (6,00 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Namočite datulje u vodi na sat vremena. Preselite datulje u multipraktik sa ½ šalice vode u kojoj su se namakale i vanilijom. Pulsirajte dok ne dobijete glatku i jednoličnu pastu. Dodajte kikiriki maslac, pa propulsirajte još jednom dok se sve ne sjedini. Po potrebi dodajte još mrvicu vode od datulja.

Mali protvan ili posudu obložite prijanjajućom folijom i pažljivo u to preselite smjesu. Poravnajte špatulom i stavite u zamrzivač na sat vremena. Kada je smjesa smrznuta, povucite foliju i tako izvadite sve iz protvana. Narežite na kocke i odmah poslužite. Ove kocke će se brzo rastrackati ako ih ostavite na sobnoj temperaturi, pa sve što ne planirate odmah pojesti čuvajte u zamrzivaču.
