Walnut Apple Cake (refined sugar free) / Kolač od oraha i jabuka (bez rafiniranog šećera)

Even though the apple and walnut combo is more reminiscent of autumn, you can definitely treat yourself with this cake any time of the year. Even more so, since the weather has been all over the place lately and we’ve had a fair dose of cold and miserable days. Unfortunately, there are no photos of cake slices since I hauled the whole tray to work, but just imagine a juicy and rich square bites and you’re on the right track. Also, the office gang wholeheartedly approved. 🙂

Also, a little note: while the cake batter itself is refined sugar free, it depends on which dark chocolate you use if the ganache is going to be that way as well.

INGREDIENTS:

(Yields 48 bite-sized squares / 0.14 EUR per square / 6.76 EUR for all)

For the batter:

4 apples (1.07 EUR)

2 eggs (0.40 EUR)

1 tsp pure vanilla extract (0.03 EUR)

½ cup date syrup (0.20 EUR)

1 cup heavy cream (0.66 EUR)

1 and ½ cups ground walnuts (1.20 EUR)

1 and ½ cups all-purpose flour (0.10 EUR)

1 tsp baking powder (0.01 EUR)

Good pinch of salt (0.01 EUR)

For the ganache:

200 grams dark chocolate (2.67 EUR)

3 tbsp butter (0.40 EUR)

Additional:

Oil for greasing the pan (0.01 EUR)

IMGP8374

IMGP8376

METHOD:

Preheat the oven to 200°C. Lightly oil a square baking pan and line it with parchment paper. Core and peel the apples, then add to a food processor and pulse into a paste. Add in the eggs, vanilla, date syrup and cream, then pulse for 2-3 minutes until fluffy and thoroughly combined.

In a bowl whisk together ground walnuts, flour, baking powder and salt. Pour the wet mix over dry ingredients, then stir until just combined. Transfer the batter to a prepared pan and bake for about 30-35 minutes, until the cake is deep golden brown and a skewer inserted inside comes out clean. Leave the cake to cool to room temperature.

Once the cake cools down, melt the chocolate with butter and pour over the cake. Even out with a spatula and cool in the fridge so the chocolate sets. Remove the cake from pan, slice and serve chilled.

Iako kombinacija jabuka i oraha ima u sebi štih jeseni, definitivno nećete pogriješiti ako se počastite ovim kolačem u bilo koje doba godine. Time više što je zadnjih dana vrijeme poprilično hirovito, sa poštenom dozom hladnih i jadnih trenutaka. Na žalost, nemam za vas slike narezanog kolača pošto sam cijeli protvan odvukla na posao, ali zamislite bogate i sočne zalogaje i na pravom ste tragu. Također, škvadra iz ureda je svesrdno podržala kolač. 🙂

I za kraj, mala napomena: sam biskvit je bez rafiniranog šećera, ali kakva će biti i glazira naravno ovisi o tome koju ćete čokoladu upotrijebiti.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 48 kockica veličine zalogaja / 1,05 kn po kockici / 50,61 kn za sve)

Za biskvit:

4 jabuke (8,00 kn)

1 žličica ekstrakta od vanilije (0,20 kn)

2 jaja (3,00 kn)

½ šalice sirupa od datulja (1,50 kn)

1 šalica vrhnja za šlag (5,00 kn)

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

1 i ½ šalica glatkog brašna (0,75 kn)

1 žličica praška za pecivo (0,10 kn)

Dobar prstohvat soli (0,01 kn)

Za glazuru:

200 g tamne čokolade (20,00 kn)

3 žlice maslaca (3,00 kn)

Dodatno:

Ulje za namastiti kalup (0,05 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Zagrijte pećnicu na 200°C. Lagano namastite protvan te ga obložite papirom za pečenje. Ogulite i očistite jabuke od sjemenki, pa ih ubacite u multipraktik i usitnite u pastu. Dodajte unutra jaja, vaniliju, sirup od datulja i vrhnje. Pulsirajte 2-3 minute dok smjesa ne bude jednolična i prozračna.

U zdjeli pomiješajte mljevene orahe, brašno, prašak za pecivo i sol. Prelijte mokre sastojke preko suhih i promiješajte tek toliko koliko treba da se sve sjedini. Smjesu preselite u pripremljeni protvan i pecite oko 30-35 minuta, dok biskvit ne bude zlatno-smeđe boje, a upiknuta čačkalica ne izađe čista. Pustite da se biskvit ohladi na sobnu temperaturu.

Rastopite čokoladu sa maslacem i prelijte preko ohlađenog biskvita. Poravnajte špatulom i ohladite u frižideru da se čokolada stisne. Izvadite kolač iz kalupa, narežite na kockice i poslužite hladan.

Jede vam se nešto slatko, ali nemate neki keksić pri ruci? Bez brige, ja sam tu da vam spasim dan. Ovi keksići će vam oduzeti oko pet minuta vremena. Lista sastojaka je također minimalna, pa su idealni za one teške životne trenutke kada vam očajnički treba slatki snack. Također su i prilično zdravi i bogati proteinima, pa pobjeđuju na svim frontama.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 20-tak keksića / 0,69 kn po keksu / 13,98 kn za sve)

¼ šalice sirupa od datulja (0,75 kn)

2 žlice kikiriki maslaca (2,00 kn)

1 šalica veganskog mlijeka (3,00 kn)

1 žličica ekstrakta od vanilije (0,20 kn)

1 šalica brašna od slanutka (5,00 kn)

¼ žličice praška za pecivo (0,03 kn)

1 šalica grožđica (3,00 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Zagrijte pećnicu na 180°C, a protvan obložite papirom za pečenje. U zdjeli pomiješajte sirup od datulja, kikiriki maslac, mlijeko i vaniliju, sve dok smjesa ne bude glatka i kremasta. Dodajte brašno od slanutka i prašak za pecivo, pa miješajte dok se sve ne sjedini. U smjesu nježno umiješajte grožđice.

Smjesu grabite na pripremljen protvan, s time da pazite da keksiće malo razmaknete jer će se mrvicu raširiti kako se budu pekli. Pecite 15 minuta, dok se keksići lagano ne raspucaju i ne posmeđe.

Keksi će biti prilično mekani kada izađu iz pećnice, ali budite bez brige, očvrsnuti će kako se budu hladili. Pustite keksiće da se jedno pet minuta hlade na protvanu prije nego ih preselite na rešetku i tako ohladite do kraja. Keksi će u hermetički zatvorenoj posudi držati na sobnoj temperaturi 3-4 dana.

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.

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:

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.

Peanut Butter Caramel Chocolate Chip Cookies (vegan, gluten free) / Karamel čoko keksići sa kikiriki maslacem (veganski, bez glutena)

These cookies are so, so good and actually quite healthy. They are vegan, gluten free and depending on the chocolate you use, can also be refined sugar free. The rich caramel taste comes from the date syrup, which I was very excited to try out after scoring it at a health food store. If you don’t have any date syrup, you can totally swap it for honey, date paste or any other sweetener of your choice. You will have to tweak the wet and dry ingredients ratio a bit, though.

Ovi keksići ne samo da su jako ukusni, već su i prilično zdravi. Veganski su, bez glutena, a ovisno o čokoladi koju ćete upotrijebiti, mogu biti i bez rafiniranog šećera. Bogat okus karamele daje im sirup od datulja, koji sam jedva dočekala isprobati nakon što sam ga upecala u jednom dućanu sa zdravom hranom. Naravno, ako nemate sirup od datulja, svakako ga možete zamijeniti medom, pastom od datulja ili kojim drugim zaslađivačem po vašem izboru. Jedino imajte na umu kako ćete vjerojatno trebati i malo prilagoditi omjer mokrih i suhih sastojaka.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 20-tak keksića / 0,78 kn po keksu / 13,56 kn za sve)

¼ šalice sirupa od datulja (0,75 kn)

3 žlice kikiriki maslaca (3,00 kn)

1 i ½ šalica veganskog mlijeka (4,50 kn)

1 i ½ šalica zobenog brašna (2,25 kn)

2 žlice mljevenih sjemenski lana (0,50 kn)

Dobar prstohvat soli (0,01 kn)

½ žličice praška za pecivo (0,05 kn)

3 reda tamne čokolade (4,50 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Zagrijte pećnicu na 180°C, a protvan obložite papirom za pečenje. Nasjeckajte čokoladu na male komadiće. U zdjeli pomiješajte sirup od datulja, kikiriki maslac i mlijeko, sve dok smjesa ne bude glatka i kremasta. Dodajte zobeno brašno, lan, sol i prašak za pecivo, pa miješajte dok se sve ne sjedini. U smjesu nježno umiješajte čokoladu.

Smjesu grabite na pripremljen protvan, s time da pazite da keksiće malo razmaknete jer će se mrvicu raširiti kako se budu pekli. Sa stražnjom stranom žlice lagano spljoštite svaki keks. Pecite 15 minuta, dok keksići lagano ne posmeđe.

Keksi će biti prilično mekani kada izađu iz pećnice, ali budite bez brige, očvrsnuti će kako se budu hladili. Pustite keksiće da se jedno pet minuta hlade na protvanu prije nego ih preselite na rešetku i tako ohladite do kraja. Keksi će u hermetički zatvorenoj posudi držati na sobnoj temperaturi 3-4 dana.

Vegan Cheesecake / Veganski Cheesecake

Happy Valentine’s day! If you are still on the lookout for something sweet to quickly whip up for your loved one (or to just treat yourself), look no further!

This vegan desert is very easy to make and is mostly raw. The majority of it comes together in a food processor and the only waiting time is for the whole thing to freeze. I decided to make it in jars so it could be more portable and single-serving, but you’re more than welcome to throw it together in a regular cake pan. I decided to top it with a quick raspberry jam (that’s the not raw part of the cake), but feel free to pick any other fruit of your choice, or skip the jam altogether.

IMGP7692

IMGP7671

IMGP7677

INGREDIENTS:

(Yields 7 servings / 0.98 EUR per serving / 6.83 EUR for all)

For the crust:

1 cup unsalted cashews (1.33 EUR)

½ cup pitted dates (0.33 EUR)

2 tbsp raw cacao powder (0.27 EUR)

1-2 tsp water (–)

For the cream “cheese” filling:

1 and ½ cups soaked unsalted cashews (2.00 EUR)

1 cup pitted dates (0.67 EUR)

1 tsp pure vanilla extract (0.03 EUR)

2 tbsp lemon juice (0.27 EUR)

1 cup plant-based milk (0.27 EUR)

For raspberry jam:

2 cups frozen raspberries (1.33 EUR)

½ cup pitted dates (0.33 EUR)

IMGP7674

IMGP7680

IMGP7691

METHOD:

Make the crust by combining all of the ingredients in a food processor and pulsing until a chunky dough forms. Press the dough into the bottom of glass jars (or into a cake pan, if using) and set aside.

To make the cream “cheese” filling, drain the soaked cashews and place in a food processor with the rest of the ingredients. Pulse on high speed until creamy and no chunks remain (this may take several minutes). Pour the filling over the crust and place cheesecakes in a freezer to firm up.

While the cheesecakes are resting in the freezer, prepare the raspberry jam. Heat the raspberries up on stovetop and simmer for about 10 minutes to thicken. Pulse the dates in a food processor into a smooth paste, then stir into raspberries. Allow the jam to cool down completely before pouring over frozen cheesecakes.

Remove the cheesecakes from freezer about 10 minutes before eating to slightly loosen up, but otherwise store in freezer.

Sretno vam Valentinovo! Ako ste još uvijek u potrazi za nekom slasticom kojom ćete počastiti svojeg voljenog ili voljenu (ili, na kraju krajeva, same sebe), ne tražite dalje!

Ovaj veganski desert je jako jednostavan za pripremiti i uglavnom je sirov. Većinu posla za vas će odraditi multipraktik, a jedino što zahtijeva nešto vremena je čekanje dok se sve smrzne. Ja sam se odlučila napraviti mini čizkejke u posudicama veličine jedne porcije, ali naravno, vi slobodno sve istovarite u normalni kalup za torte. Za preljev sam se odlučila za brzi pekmez od malina (to je onaj dio kolača koji nije sirov), ali naravno vi slobodno uzmite neko drugo voće, ili pekmez skroz izbacite.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 7 porcija / 7,31 kn po porciji / 51,20 kn za sve)

Za koru:

1 šalica sirovih indijskih oraščića (10,00 kn)

½ šalice odkoštenih datulja (2,50 kn)

2 žlice sirovog kakao praha (2,00 kn)

1-2 žličice vode (–)

Za kremu od ”sira”

1 i ½ šalica preko noći namočenih sirovih indijskih oraščića (15,00 kn)

1 šalica odkoštenih datulja (5,00 kn)

1 žličica ekstrakta od vanilije (0,20 kn)

2 žlice limunovog soka (2,00 kn)

1 šalica veganskog mlijeka po izboru (2,00 kn)

Za pekmez od malina:

2 šalice smrznutih malina (10,00 kn)

½ šalice odkoštenih datulja (2,50 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Ubacite sve sastojke za koru u multipraktik i pulsirajte dok ne dobijete grudasto tijesto. Tijesto utisnite u dno staklenki (ili u protvan za tortu, ako ga koristite) i stavite na stranu.

Za kremu od ”sira”, ocijedite namočene oraščiće i stavite u multipraktik sa svim ostalim sastojcima. Pulsirajte na visokoj brzini dok ne dobijete glatku kremu (to može potrajati nekoliko minuta). Kremu prelijte preko kore i stavite sve u zamrzivač da se stisne.

Dok čizkejk odmara u zamrzivaču pripremite pekmez. Maline zagrijte na štednjaku i krčkajte desetak minuta da se zgusnu. Datulje smeljite u multipraktiku u glatku pastu pa onda umiješajte u maline. Pustite da se pekmez do kraja ohladi prije nego ga rasporedite po smrznutom čizkejku.

Čizkejk čuvajte u zamrzivaču, ali ga izvadite van desetak minuta prije posluživanja da se malo otpusti.

Vegan Cheesecake / Veganski Cheesecake

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.

Let’s be honest, this dish looks quite unattractive. Or better yet, fugly. But it’s quite tasty and falls into a category of deserts that are healthy and good for you. I think it would be even better with cacao powder, but alas, I’ve ran out of it so couldn’t verify this theory. Let me know what you think if you give it a go, though.

METHOD:

Make the pudding by throwing all of the ingredients in a food processor and pulsing. Allow it to sit for about ten minutes and then pulse once more. Divide the mixture between four jars and refrigerate overnight.

Meanwhile, prepare the raspberry-date jam. Thaw the raspberries a bit and pulse in a food processor with dates. Either leave this mixture as it is, or cook for 5-10 minutes on low heat to additionally thicken. Allow to cool completely before topping the chia pudding with it.

The pudding will keep refrigerated for a few days.

Budimo iskreni, ovo jelo izgleda poprilično neatraktivno. Ili bolje rečeno, grdo. Ali zapravo je prilično ukusno i pada pod kategoriju zdravih deserta. Mislim da bi stvar bila još finija sa kakao prahom, ali nama ga je baš bilo ponestalo pa nisam mogla potvrditi ovu teoriju. Javite mi kako vam je ispalo ako se vi odlučite to isprobati.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 4 porcije / 3,80 kn po porciji / 15,20 kn za sve)

Za puding:

3 šalice domaćeg kokosovog mlijeka (2,50 kn)

4 žlice chia sjemenki (4,00 kn)

1 žličica stevije u prahu (0,50 kn)

1 žličica ekstrakta od vanilije (0,20 kn)

2 žličice cimeta u prahu (0,50 kn)

Za pekmez od malina:

1 šalica smrznutih malina (5,00 kn)

½ šalice odkoštenih datulja (2,50 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Pripremite puding tako da sve sastojke ubacite u multipraktik i propulsirate. Ostavite desetak minuta da miruje, pa onda opet propulsirajte. Rasporedite puding u četiri posude i stavite u hladnjak preko noći.

U međuvremenu pripremite pekmez od malina i datulja. Maline odmrznite i skupa sa datuljama propulsirajte u multipraktiku. Pekmez možete ostaviti takav kakav je ili ga dodatno zgusnite tako da ga 5-10 minuta kuhate na laganoj vatri. Pustite da se skroz ohladi prije nego pekmez rasporedite po chia pudingu.

Puding će držati u hladnjaku nekoliko dana.
