We're big lovers of chocolate here at KOJA HQ! We're also very fussy with what chocolate we indulge in. There's a big difference between chocolate that comes from the confectionary aisle and the real stuff that's much lower in sugar and really nutrient dense. We wrote a blog post all about it, if you're interested in learning more.
With Easter just around the corner the supermarkets are teaming with 'chocolate' products... we started noticing Easter eggs on shelves in February! It can be easy to get swept up in the festivity of it all. But don't let the clever marketing get you. Make your own healthy chocolate treats for yourself and your loved ones this Easter. We've put together a list of our favourite healthy recipes to help you tick your chocolate craving box. There's a few in there that make great gifts too! Giving the gift of health is the best gift you can give someone.
These bites are seriously delicious! They are quick and easy to make and contain none of the nasties you'll find in traditional fudge. They're gluten free, vegan and refined sugar free too! You can easily turn these into a Easter present! Just grab a cute jar or clear bag, pop some fudge inside, wrap with a cute ribbon and there you have it! DIY gift.
There's a reason everyone loves muesli. It's crunchy, sweet and oh so satisfying! It's biggest downfall is the added bits that you think are healthy, but they definitely are not! Sugars, preservatives, fillers - gross! We're all about making our own and this Cacao Crunch recipe has the texture you crave of a muesli but with real foods packed with vitamins and minerals. It's another easy recipe to make and can be put in a jar, tied up in a ribbon to make a beautiful homemade gift.
Who doesn't love bliss balls? We don't need to tell you how amazing these little balls of goodness are. Your friends and family will love receiving them in a jar or rolled up in a paper bag and you'll love snacking on them too!
This is another one of those recipes that looks awesome served in a jar, tied up with a ribbon and gifted to a loved one. Just don't tell them it's make with avocado and blow their minds as they try to guess how you made a vegan mousse so creamy and delicious!
Ok, this cake is seriously yum and surprisingly healthy! It will make the perfect edition to your Easter Sunday feast! It's another fun recipe where you can have your guests guess what they think it's made of. Chances are none of them will guess Chickpeas are what's making it do dense and delicious!
Technically Easter has nothing to do with pancakes...but we've unofficially renamed Sunday as 'Pancake Day' so it's a valid reason to indulge in some pancakey goodness! Our Cacao Protein Pancakes topped with a rich chocolatey sauce taste as good as they look, plus they're gluten free with a vegan option, so they're sure to please everyone at the table (or bed, we do love breakfast in bed on a Sunday)!
