Gluten-Free Vegan Flapjack

Flapjack is an ideal snack, whether it be to have with a cup of tea or an on-the-go breakfast. And this recipe makes a delicious flapjack that is gluten free, vegan, and delicious! 😀

The recipe is incredibly quick, and the thing that takes the longest time is waiting for it to cool once it comes out the oven. You can easily adapt the recipe as well, to suit your own tastes or to vary things a little if you make them regularly. Continue reading

Corn Pucks with Roasted Beetroots and Potatoes

These corn pucks are incredibly delicious, and are something Jason had at a few lunch buffets at his work. After eating so many of them, he had to have the recipe so we could make them at home, and this is it 🙂

These pucks are great as the main part of a dinner, like we had tonight, or as a snack to have during your day, at a picnic, or even on the bike! You can adapt it as you like, to add different spices, but we think the original (from Chef Sofie Göransson) is still the best. Continue reading

Today I used whole wheat flour and graham flour. Swedes like to eat their scones with butter, jam or cheese, but you can eat them however you want 🙂 Continue reading

Raw Food Cacao Snack Balls

We wanted to make some traditional Swedish Lucia buns (saffron buns), which contain a lot of sugar, so we figured we needed something else and something no one could resist!

Coconut Energy Snack Bars

When you exercise a lot, you never want to feel too hungry between meals or not have enough energy to sustain you. With these bars, we think we have our favourite do-everything bars! We take them to work with us to have as snacks, eat them in the morning before a pre-breakfast run/ride, take them on the bike with us, and eat them after a workout before getting home to a recovery meal, among other things.

Granola is so easy to make and then you have a really crunchy, delicious afternoon/evening/morning snack. We usually eat our granola with milk, yoghurt or quark. You can add any extra fruit and berries that you like, that will only make the bowl of granola even more delicious. What you put in your granola is also entirely up to you. You can mix all sorts of nuts, seeds and oats.
