Nothing But Snack- product review

It's been a while since I meant to post this review.......


Nothing But Snacks




I had the pleasure of trying this wonderful freeze dried vegetable and fruit snack from Nothing But

I love dried fruit, and when Nothing But asked me to try their new products I was really happy to see what they came up with. To be honest, I LOVE every single bite. The taste of the fruits and veggies snack is just amazing, crunchy texture, rich flavour, just yummy.These are literally freeze dried vegetables in a packet with just fewer calories. 



I think that they are great addition to your lunch bag, especially kids lunch bag instead of unhealthy choices in school cafeteria.
The only two down sides about it is the price and that 30min after you open the bag, crisp are not crispy anymore and unfortunately, for me is bit to pricey.

Otherwise, great small treat to kill sweet and savoy cravings.

Beetroot and parsnip

strawberry and banana

Gluten free crêpes with chocolate mousse gluten free, vegan, chocolate mousse, crepes



Sunday calls for pancakes, but today I am inviting you for my easy and super yummy crêpes with light, yet delicious chocolate mousse.

Its been a while since I posted something here, but there is so much going on now. New job, wedding preparations, some new plans in my head.......

Crêpes reminds me of home, my mum use to make them for me on Saturdays.
They are are typically rolled up, like big cigars, with sort of sweet or savory filling. But there are so many unique ways to present them as well as the filling you use inside. The most delicious crdpes I've ever had were filled with my grandmas plum jam (dreaming).

                             Crêpes are the easiest and the quickest breakfast or lunch option plus you only need few ingredients.


For the pancakes mix:
150 gr gluten free plain flour ( I used Doves Farm)
250 ml home made almond milk
1 egg ( you can use 1 vegan egg for vegan recipe)


For chocolate mousse:
2 tbsp raw cacao powder 
1/2 cup roasted pecans
5 soft dates
1 ripe banana
1/2 avocado 
if you like it sweeter add some coconut nectar

For frying:


Method:
1. Mix all pancake ingredients until well combined.
2.Heat a small non-stick frying pan with a coconut oil.
3. Cook for a few mins until golden brown on the bottom, then turn over and cook until golden on the the other side. Repeat until you have used all the mixture, stirring the mixture between pancakes and adding more coconut oil for frying as necessary.
4 To make the mousse, add all ingredients to high speed blender or food processor. Blend until well combined.
5. Serve with toppings of your choice.

Enjoy!
