Sunday night I baked this Gluten Free Chocolate Almond Fudge Cake and it was yum! The cake has a delicious fudge centre and like the majority of recipes I share, it was super easy to make! I can’t take credit for this recipe though, as the original recipe came from a Coles magazine.
Sharing a new recipe each week often means I’m spending my spare time in the kitchen (which you all know I LOVE). A new recipe every week also means I have an abundance of sweets in the house, unless I gift the recipe to loved ones. But I don’t have any shame in sharing with you all that I regularly eat treats. As a Dietitian I’m all about a balanced diet, where “diet” means everyday eating. I eat plenty of fruit, wholegrains and vegetables and exercise regularly. But more importantly I eat what I feel like, when I feel like it and thoroughly enjoy it. I’ll only ever encourage avoiding certain foods if medically necessary.
If you ever have any questions for me or want to know more about my food choices send me an email at [email protected] In the meantime I’ll keep baking.
Last week I made this delicious Gluten Free Almond, Cranberry and Pistachio Nougat. Not a bad effort for my first attempt at making Nougat! It’s got that perfect balance of chewy sweetness and a little crunch and wasn’t at all hard to make. You just need a good candy thermometer and some patience to let the nougat set before you can take a bite!
Thanks to the Queen website for the original recipe. I made a few small modifications for my own taste preferences and ease of baking.
In other news, I missed posting new recipes over the last two week thanks to a nasty bug that got the better of Jesse, Lyla and I (my husband and 19 month old for those new to my blog). Thankfully we’re all on the improve now. I’m also really close to being allowed to start rehab after my recent back surgeries. I’m so excited! I plan on making an extra few treats to celebrate this weekend!
Hope you’re all having a great week so far and thank you for stopping by.
Today I’m sharing these Gluten Free Almond Coconut Cacao Balls. They’re super quick and easy to make with no baking required. Simply because I wanted a quick, tasty and healthy treat. Also we have a stack of almond meal that needed to be used.
Actually we still have a lot of almond meal in the kitchen so feel free to send me any tasty recipes you might have with almond meal as a key ingredient.
Happy Wednesday to you all, The Naughty Dietitian xoxo
