Choco-hazelnut homemade granola

I’ve always loved eating oatmeal or muesli for breakfast. But believe it or not, the first time I ever tried granola was only a few weeks ago. I absolutely loved it, but then I read the ingredients and realized why I’ve read so many times that it’s unhealthy. So, I decided to try and make my own. I mean, how hard can it be? As it turned out: not hard at all.

The simplest chocolate pudding ever

Believe it or not, I’ve only recently discovered avocado and its divine, creamy texture. Some people I know love avocado (hi, Andrea), but they only eat it in savory dishes. Considering that, let’s face it, avocado almost has no flavor, I decided to make a dessert out of it. And so, the quickest chocolate pudding was born!

No need for cooking it and cooling it. All you need is a blender or a food processor, three ingredients and three minutes of your time. Perfect!

Lazy cook’s whole wheat bread

Serbs love bread, and I’m no different. However, bread in most bakeries Serbia is made from white flour, with tons of additives. This is why it was the first thing I stopped eating when I decided to change my diet, and I don’t even like white bread anymore. It’s weird how changing habits changes our taste for food.

But I still do love bread, just not the kind I can buy at most bakeries. So, my options were ditching it completely, buying overpriced whole wheat bread (and still not knowing what exactly it contains), or making my own. You can probably guess what I opted for.

Blind dates

This is probably the simplest dessert in the Universe, but it’s one of my favorites. Basically, these are dates filled with anything you come up with and covered in chocolate. But although there are only a few ingredients involved, this dessert does require some patience to be made.

I picked up this idea from my friend Andrea, who often makes these little treats. While the two of us just call them something like “little dates” in Serbian, I named them “Blind Dates” in English because the pun is just too good not to be used. Just like in a blind date, you never know what you’re gonna get. But unlike real blind dates, there’s no way these treats are gonna disappoint you. 😀

I’m no stranger to store-bought candy bars. Okay, I don’t buy them that often anymore, but Bounty will forever remain one of my favorites. To satisfy my sweet tooth and the insane cravings for my favorite candy bar, I came up with a simple homemade version that doesn’t contain processed sugar, milk, or artificial flavors. I use honey, but you can easily make these vegan-friendly!

Chickpea brownies (it tastes way better than it sounds)

chickpea brownies

Do you know anyone who doesn’t like brownies? No? Neither do I. As you may assume, I love brownies too, but I make them in a non-traditional way (like everything else). Instead of packing them with white flour and processed sugar, I use chickpeas and a bit of honey. Yeah, chickpeas. Don’t worry, I assure you that you can’t taste them when you bite into these delicious treats. There’s only the heavenly taste of chocolate, so without further ado, let’s dive in and check out the recipe!
